Parasites are one of the most unpleasant ailments to ever suffer from. Aside from just the thought of having a live organism living off of your insides, they also usually come with a multitude of unpleasant symptoms. These symptoms include:
Loss of appetite
Cysts or lumps
Allergic reactions to larvae
Neurological symptoms, including seizures
In extreme cases, being infected with a parasite can even result in death.
Most parasites can be contracted by eating under-cooked meat such as beef, poultry and fish, however they can also be found in vegetables, especially ones not treated with any form of pesticide.
The most commonly contracted parasite is called E. vermicularis, and goes by a variety of other names such as the pinworm or seatworm. It is the most common parasitic worm in the United States and humans are it’s only known host. Approximately 209 million people worldwide are infected with E. vermincularis, and 30% of all children across the entire world are infected.
The second most common parasite is G. lamblia, which causes a wide variety of gastrointestinal problems. During the late 90’s, it was recorded that approximately 2.5 million people were infected by this parasite every year.
Cellophane Tape Test
If you think that you may have a parasite and are able to access a microscope then there is a very simple and straightforward way for you to confirm if you have one or not.
Using a piece of cellophane (scotch) tape that is slightly longer than the microscope slide, affix the end of the tape near one end of the slide. Loop the tape around the other end of the slide so that the surface is completely covered by the tape and that the adhesive side of the tape is exposed. Then touch the adhesive surface to the perianal region of the body several times, this is where many parasites, such as pinworms, lay their eggs. Then place the slide under the microscope and check for eggs.
Castor Oil Pack and Parastats
If you find out that you do indeed have parasites, here is how to treat them. It mainly requires the use of two products, Parastats and Castor Oil Packs.
Parastats are meant to act as immune-specific support for the intestines, specifically made to detoxify it of intestinal parasites. It is available online in capsule form, and the recommended doses for adults and children are one to three capsules per day.
Although Parastats on it’s own can be very effective at getting rid of parasites, castor oil packs can help increase it’s effectiveness. Castor oil packs are also available online, and are large flannel “packs” that are infused with castor oil and applied topically to provide a number of health benefits.
Many parasites that invade internal organs, such as the colon, often leave those organs and come closer to the surface of our bodies to lay eggs. This is where the use of castor oil packs come in. When you don’t use castor oil and just try to kill the parasites internally, the eggs laid outside of the infected organ just hatch later on and move back in. What castor oil does is speed up the hatching of these eggs, causing the parasites to migrate back into your organs so they are killed by the Parastats at the same time as the previous parasites, which effectively ends their reproductive cycle.
It is recommended to apply the castor oil pack to the effected area three time a week for thirty minute periods for at least sixty days, while simultaneously using parastats.
