parasite facts

Parasites… They rob you of your energy, steal your vitamins and minerals and are in essence a sponge that harbor chemicals, mold, toxins, heavy metals, and more. If you are passionate about health and improving yours you'll want to read this blog post to the end to know why you should address and offload them!

Parasites are more common than you realize and the common phrase "If you have a pulse you have a parasite" is true! Parasites act like a holding tank for heavy metals, Lyme, pathogens, mold spores, vaccines , chemicals, radiation, and more. These all begin to accumulate which adds a burden on the immune system and creates other things to reactivate and causes inflammation to increase.

Parasites often hold individuals back from healing their bodies in any healing journey. When individuals don’t see success with protocols and find themselves circling back again to the same problem it’s often a sign pointing to the need to specifically target parasites. One of the biggest mistakes I see chronic illness clients make is not addressing parasites in the first place, and second to that would be addressing them in the wrong order and prioritizing other aspects of healing first.

When individuals become stuck on a the chronic illness merry-go-round that doesn't stop there is more work needs to be done or in many cases the work was never started. That’s where utilizing a certain order when addressing healing and specifically in this case, addressing parasites, is helpful when approaching healing.

Parasite Symptoms Include:

Parasites are like sponges that collect a whole host of undesirable toxins, heavy metals, mycotoxins, Lyme, mycoplasma, viruses, chemicals, and radiation. To make matters worse they often cloak themselves in biofilm that helps them go undetected from the immune system and thrive. This is what keeps them alive and thriving.

parasite information

They are attracted to a toxic body so the more toxic your body is the more of a problematic parasitic load you will likely possess.

A high parasitic load further weakens the body due to the fact that parasites steal valuable vitamins and minerals from the food you consume. They go after your ferritin (iron storage) and leave individuals often feeling weak and fatigued and undernourished.

For certain individuals, jumping headlong into a parasite cleanse can backfire quickly. An important, and often overlooked factor, is the importance of building up (the body) before breaking down (parasites in the body). I help clients do this with important foundational support in the beginning of our time together. If you'd like to read more about this you can do so in my blog post "Five Essential Tips For Supporting Drainage On Your Healing Journey". This critical and important foundational work is done so that the body has the necessary nutrients in place to keep the body from being overwhelmed. This is just one of many reasons why it’s important to work alongside a professional in any healing journey.

How Do You Test For Parasites?

information on how to test for parasites

I love utilizing bioenergetic testing as conventional testing has many limitations and most of the time gives false negatives. Most test for about 50 parasites, which is only considered about 5% of the thousands of species that can affect humans. Bioenergetic testinging tests for the energetics resonance of parasites, which is far more helpful.
