Parasitic Infection Symptoms

Parasitic Infection Symptoms

“Bacteria keep us from heaven and also put us there.”
- Martin Henry Fischer

Having parasites is more common than not having them. You can have parasites living in your gut and never know it because it’s possible that they never give you any symptoms. But if they get out of hand they can be responsible for a number of parasitic infection symptoms including:

  • allergies
  • abdominal pain
  • bloated stomach
  • brittle fingernails
  • itchy nose or skin
  • joint pain
  • constipation
  • cramps
  • depression
  • diarrhea
  • digestive discomfort
  • disturbed sleep
  • fatigue
  • gas
  • headaches
  • IBS
  • lower back pain
  • ravenous appetite
  • sugar cravings
  • weight loss

These are some of the more common symptoms and while there are others, there may also be none at all and it’s still possible to have parasites.

How do you get parasites?

The use and overuse of pharmaceutical antibiotics, International travel, from food and water, from insects, through sexual contact, via nose and mouth. Parasites are so tiny they can even enter through the skin.

If they like their new surroundings they will stay. If they hate them, they won’t. We can create an environment in our digestive tract that is not conducive to a comfortable parasitic lifestyle. If they do stay be assured they will not only set up camp but will quickly multiply and create a larger community.

How to create an environment that parasites love

Eat lots of sugar, things like chocolate bars and soda pop. Maybe some pop tarts for breakfast to give them a good boost of energy to start their day. Junk and fatty foods made with white flour will strengthen the parasitic environment as well. Whatever you do, don’t eat more fruits and vegetables or whole grains.

All kidding aside, if you do just the opposite you will start to create an environment inside your intestines that will favor you instead of them. They thrive off sugars and junk food and so do their buddies, the other bad bacteria.

Probiotics can help

Most people are familiar with probiotics. Even though they can be taken as a supplement, they are a natural bacteria that live alongside parasites but probiotics are part of the good bacteria group. It’s important to get this group to grow and flourish and outnumber the bad bacteria group and that’s why people have been buying up lots of probiotic supplements.
