How I’d Fight Parasites

An estimated 50%+ of Americans carry or have carried parasites. They can be picked up in many ways but most commonly by eating pork and visiting areas where clean water isn’t widely available. I’ll explain how I would fight off parasites in my body through good diet, supplements and cleansing.

Parasite Cleanse Supplements

Look for supplements containing these parasite fighting items:

  • Thyme leaf
  • Burberry
  • Oregano
  • Grapefruit seed extract
  • Uva Ursi

The top 4 parasite fighting compounds can sometimes be found in a tincture of Black Walnut, Wormwood, Olive Leaf, and Garlic

Parasite Fighting Diet

The purpose of a parasite fighting diet is to create an environment that the parasites do not like. This means eliminating sugars and grains. During a cleanse, even fruits contain too much sugar. Following the meal plan below will allow your body the best chance to fight the parasites in your body.

Breakfast: Smothie of Coconut Milk, Chia Seeds, and a good Raw Protein Powder

Lunch: a large, mainly green salad

Dinner: Grass fed or free range meat with twice the veggies as normal

One of the best foods you can eat to kill off parasites is Pumpkin Seeds. Eat 1 cup per day during a cleanse

    • Rachel says:

      There are only 3 herbs that kill parasites . Wormwood, Black walnut hull, and Cloves. one without the other will not help you because one kills the larva, the eggs, and then the adult Parasites. If you kill only the adults, or vice versa, you will defeat the purpose. I have been expelling parasites that are almost a foot long along with the smaller ones. It always amazes me ! Back in the day, Parasite cleansing was as normal and usual as brushing your teeth ! At some point, doctors stopped stressing the importance of it, in the long run, causing all sorts of illnesses which are killing thousands daily. If more people knew about cleansing, more would be healed of their illnesses, better yet, preventing them ! but then your doctor wouldnt be driving his fancy Corvet now would he/she ? Obviously, its not about your health, its about their bank account and if we want to be healthy, we must take control ourselves. Parasite cleansing is so very important. I cant stress it enough.

        Thanks, Rachel. I agree that parasite cleansing is essential to good health. Did a few rounds using Blessed Herb products. It is amazing to see those things come out of you! The wormwood, black walnut hull & cloves that you take….please provide more info. Tablet or capsule form or other? How much? How often? Thanks.

    I have two small children(ages 2 and 4.) I hate to be a negative nan, but I would not be able to follow your guidelines for a parasite cleanse. Any recommendations for them? Thank you.

      We have used a product by for the entire family (children 30 lbs or heavier). We do their parasite cleans just about every year. It is a family owned business that makes the capsules fresh from the herbs they grow once ordered.

      I would recommend Tahitian Noni juice from Tahitian Noni International because it is effective and safe. Only that brand; it is in the doctors non- pharmaceutical drug book and you can read about its safety.I have much experience with it and given it to kittens.
