Back in 2008, Jordan called me in a panic, “I have Liver Flukes. They filled up the toilet. It was so disgusting! I knew I had a parasite!”
Or so he thought.
After more investigation, it turned out he was seeing undigested Craisins in his daily diarrhea (another failed health experiment).
Such is the life of sick people trying to get well on random message boards, taking every parasite cleanse they can find, hoping for anything that will work.
You see, the word parasite used to trigger my bullcrap radar. There’s a lot of scammy information on the web about parasites. If you’re reading this, you’ve likely felt that creepy feeling the first time you read about them. Your doctor might have even laughed at you when you asked about them.
Despite all of that truth, you might actually have a parasite. Approximately 80% of our consulting clients tested positive for GI infections. This isn’t science fiction or late night Google paranoia. Human Parasites are a HUGE problem in people with chronic health complaints.
And you could be one of those suffering from a parasite infection.
The Perfect Storm for Parasitic Infections
The amount of people who have autoimmune diseases is growing every year, and the number of those with digestive problems, like IBS, is exploding. I think GI parasites are a major part of the problem.
I had a parasite. Jordan had one. Many of our friends, like Dr. Dan Kalish, Chris Kresser and others, had them. There’s a common myth in the western world that because of our advanced “cleanliness” parasites aren’t that big of a problem for human health.
I’m starting to believe the reverse is true. Through our obsessive focus on cleanliness, high usage of antibiotics/anti-fungals and anti-parasitic drugs, and our now broken relationship with soil and Mother Nature, we are creating the perfect storm to have an ever-increasing infection rate of GI parasites.
Diet Not Restoring Your Health?
For every super success story on SCD, GAPS or Paleo, there are many others who are left wanting more or driven to try yet another diet idea.
The reality is that food can’t fix everything and it surely can’t kill a parasite infection. If you’re having any of the following problems, then I would urge you to think about parasites as a root problem:
- Cyclical or random diarrhea
- Chronic constipation
- Environmental, seasonal and food allergies
- Skin breakouts
- Diet really isn’t giving you the results you wanted
- And more…
Honestly, if you have been eating a strict real food diet for more than 3 months and you’re still battling chronic health symptoms, then a parasite could be your core issue.
10 Common GI Parasites
A bit of research on many of these bugs could quickly lead to a “Google death spiral.” Can they all really be parasitic and harmful to our health? Expert so-and-so says the opposite. Who should I believe?
I believe the answer is to look at the whole picture. No microorganism should be looked at inside of a bubble. That’s not how real life works.
Real life is much more like this example:
Johnny has been suffering from GI problems for 3 years. He’s out of conventional options and is sick of feeling like a small version of himself who can’t control his bowels. Initial test results suggest no GI infections, diet changes help, and so do supplements, but he knows in his heart that he’s still not well. Then, advanced tests show positive for Endolimax nana. Most conventional Doctors say it’s possibly “opportunistic” and doesn’t cause problems. But Johnny treats it with a knowledgeable practitioner and his health rapidly starts coming back.
The story above happens every week all around the world. And if you’re still struggling with symptoms and you test positive for any of the following 10 parasites, I believe they should absolutely be killed off, because they could be destroying your health.
- Entamoeba histolytica
- Giant roundworm
- Entamoeba coli
- Blastocystis hominis
- Dientamoeba fragilis
- Endolimax nana
This is a list of the top ten parasites we’ve seen in our own health struggles as well as consulting practice. As mentioned, I believe that in the presence of chronic health issues all of these bugs should be considered culprits of the issues.
How to Defend Yourself Against Human Parasites
We’ve said before that GI infections are a problem and that finding them is harder than you might expect. Even the most expensive tests on the market are far from perfect when it comes to finding these bugs.
Which means the ability to find them is always evolving as technology improves and the testing companies keep innovating. What we know for sure, though, is that standard stool testing covered under most insurance plans isn’t cutting it.
Bottom line, the big concern for you is that best practices are always changing including how to get rid of parasites. And it’s unlikely that your doctor is keeping up with these changes…
Which is why we want to give you the most up-to-date info regarding…
- The NEW best way to find parasites
- Who might want to treat right away and who should actually wait
- The protocols from the top chronic health practitioners to get rid of them
For less than an average insurance co-pay, you’ll have all the info you need to work side-by-side with your own medical practitioner to get rid of GI parasites and other infections once and for all. We’ve recorded this talk and transcribed it for you, so you’ll have the info you need to take action as soon as possible.
