Parasites, Opening a can of worms

Nobody wants to talk about parasites! But parasite cleansing can be a useful way to improve our health. Our modern day lifestyles in the Western world can make us more vulnerable to parasites; Antibiotics can weaken our immune systems and sugar and carbohydrates can feed them. You wont likely get a formal diagnosis for parasites, a stool sample is said to be a very unreliable diagnostic tool for parasite detection. Renown parasitologist Dr Yu, says in his book,
“Why are parasite problems overlooked? First, most of the parasites have very complex life cycles that are often outside of the intestinal tract. Second, we only look at stool samples. Third, stool samples are old and semi-destroyed when collected and sent to the lab. Stool samples should be fresh. Fourth, most laboratory technicians and pathologists don’t have enough training to recognize ova and parasites in the stool.” Accidental Cure Dr Simom Yu.
The very well renowned and revered Functional Medicine practitioner, Andrew Johnson, whom I first saw in the UK, once said to me that,
“parasites are the medical profession’s best kept secret”
Perhaps it is because we fear them so much, we would go to any means to deny that we would harbor parasites, but in reality it would seem that we all carry them to a degree. A favourite Functional Medicine practitioner of mine is the German born Dr Klinghardt. This is the doctor that I really wanted to see but alas he does not take new clients anymore, rather he tours internationally giving seminars and training practitioners. Much of what he advocates is rooted in treating parasites, and in his presentations he ties in many different alternative therapies to reduce the bodies burden of these unwelcome guests. Like so many alternative practitioners he rarely advocates the use of pharmaceutical medications, but has been quoted to say that anti parasite meds are the exception and usually a very necessary component in improving chronic illness’s. Some of the most common types of parasites are microscopic, these can include D.Fragilis and Blastocystis Hominis and can cause some of the symptoms of IBS. But there are many different kinds of parasites that we can carry. It is common place for us to treat our animals for parasites, but not ourselves, most of the world has always routinely done this with the use of many different natural anti parasite herbs, but in Western culture we have evaded this practice and perhaps we should start to introduce this into our lifestyles. Some of the most common herbs to use are Black Walnut and Cloves, and there are various blends of natural remedies available that contain these two ingredients. But many argue that these alone are not enough. A famous Biologist Dr Hulda Clark developed several techniques for eradicating parasites, including her ‘zapper’: an electrical healing device which works by electrocuting pathogens,
‘The ZAPPER “electrocutes” small pathogens such as parasites, bacteria, viruses, fungus and other toxins. It does not need to have a specific frequency to do this, as it is, contrary to a frequency generator, frequency-independent’
  Parasites appear to be very persistent organisms, and despite numerous therapies to treat them, many people complain that they always return, and so it is evident that the persons immune system also needs strengthening in order for them to be controlled, this can take time and usually requires lifestyle changes including diet but also the re-population of beneficial bacteria in the Gastro Intestinal (GI) tract. One way in which to do this is through the use of fermented food and yogurts, which contain high levels of probiotics.
