Natural Remedies for Parasites
Written and Compiled by Tony Isaacs
According to the World Health
Organization, 3.5 billion people
suffer from some type of parasitic
infection. Not all of these people
live in third world countries; many
in the developed world have any
number of parasitic infections, some
of which are so highly contagious
that extremely casual contact with
something that has been handled by
an infected person can infect
It is extremely easy to contract a
parasite infection. Contaminated
water is one source of infection.
Improperly washed or undercooked
food is a common means of infection.
Transmission from pets is another.
Contact with another infected person
is also a common route of infection.
Travel can escalate the risks.
Antibiotics pose another problem
because they interfere with normal
intestinal flora, some which tend to
control certain types of infection.
Acute parasite infection is usually
characterized by greater or lesser
abdominal distress and diarrhea,
often urgent and attended by burning
sensations and tremendous fluid
loss. Only rarely is there any
visible evidence of infection.
Moreover, many laboratories fail to
detect the presence of parasites
even when presented with specimens
from infected persons. It is
therefore sometimes necessary for
the patient to determine whether
infection is likely and to
self-administer some remedy since
allopathic medicine requires a
diagnosis before prescriptions can
Once a condition has moved from
acute to chronic, there may be
alternating periods of constipation
and diarrhea, abdominal distention
and bloating, intestinal cramping
followed by burning sensations and
the sudden urge to eliminate.
Generally, there is malabsorption of
nutrients, especially fatty foods.
Irritable bowel syndrome, blood
sugar fluctuations, sudden food
cravings, and extreme emaciation or
overweight are all possible
symptoms—but, as stated, not
necessarily proof of parasitic
Itching is a possible clue to
infection, especially among
children; however, the absence of
itching does not mean there is no
infection. The itching tends to be
worst where there is moisture: nose,
eyes, ears, and of course the anus.
Skin sensitivity is also common:
rashes, eczema-like conditions, and
even serious eruptions.
Many parasites affect the nervous
system and give rise to sleep
disorders, such as insomnia. In
children, hyperactivity is common,
but adults may have symptoms ranging
from depression to anxiety. Some
parasites affect the brain and
memory. In short, the part of the
body affected depends on where the
parasites have invaded: blood,
intestines, liver, pancreas,
kidneys, brain, etc. To make
infection even more difficult to
determine, add to this scenario the
fact that many, if not most,
parasites migrate so the symptoms
could change depending on where the
parasites are at any given time.
To get rid of parasites:
Do a good parasite cleanse just
in case - such as one like Hulda
Clark's. Her fluke theory of all
cancers and diseases may be

Diatomaceous earth, especially
in combination with bentonite
clay, will often kill and
eliminate parasites in the GI
Coconut oil - parasites hate it
and it will help your liver (it
helps keep the bile ducts open)
and your balance of healthy fats
Some good herbs to use for parasites
ARTEMISIA used to expel pinworms
and treat malaria. Be sure to use
the form artemisia annua, which is a
famed anti-malarial herb that is
also in many parasitic formulas and
has significant anti-cancer
properties as well. While Artemisia
annua is safe, Artemisia absinthium
(also known as "wormwood") should be
used cautiously due to its toxic and
potentially addictive qualities.
BLACK WALNUT tincture and capsules
are used for worms & parasitic
CLOVES powdered cloves are used to
kill larvae before they hatch.
Cloves are among the most
antibacterial spices known, but as
we all know, a few cloves go a long
way. Those with some familiarity
with herbal medicine know that clove
oil is also used to numb pain due to
dental infection; but few know that
part of the reason clove oil works
so well is that it alleviates the
infection. Cloves are antiseptic,
bactericidal, and antiparasitic. For
parasite cleansing, it is necessary
to use fresh cloves that have not
been irradiated. Most spices are
irradiated with 35,000 the amount of
radiation permitted in a chest
x-ray. This is ostensibly done to
eradicate bacteria, but spices are
generally excellent bactericides so
the irradiation is merely a way of
destroying the precious properties
of spices. Non-irradiated spices are
available from most high-end health
