What Is a Parasite
A parasite is an organism that feeds off of a host to grow and survive. Worms are a common type of parasite that is found in the intestines. In extreme cases, a parasite can kill the host, however, in the United States, parasitic infections are rarely fatal. With that being said, there are some very unpleasant side effects associated with a parasitic infestation including the following:
- Mood swings
- Weight loss/gain
- Flu-like symptoms
- Aches and pains
These symptoms can become very severe and disrupt your quality of life. Additionally, if left untreated parasites will continue to feed and grow and the symptoms could worsen over time.
What to Expect
When doing a parasite cleanse your body will be going through some unpleasant side effects. The effects that you feel from the infection might worsen at first. When you do a cleanse your body will go through a phase called the Die-Off. During the Die-Off, you will see a large number of parasites being expelled when you use the restroom.
This part of the process is not pretty, but you must remember that it is better for these critters to be out than in! Some minor GI issues are to be expected during this phase including gas and possibly diarrhea, however, you should start to feel normal again in a few weeks.
During your cleanse it is important to eat fiber-rich foods and stay hydrated. Keeping a journal of your experience is recommended to help you keep track of your symptoms, diet, and progress.
Cleansing Your Body
Doing a parasite cleanse can help alleviate the painful and stressful symptoms of a parasitic infection.
