of all these real live parasites: WATCH
A "parasite" is any organism that invades and lives at
the expense of another organism, known as the host. Parasites include,
not only those organisms scientifically categorized as parasites,
like protozoa and tapeworms, but also yeasts, fungi, viruses
and bacteria. It's rare that a person is affected only
by yeasts, or by one type of germ. People often harbor many species
of pathogenic organisms, which contribute to a wide spectrum of
health problems ranging from arthritis and diabetes to depression
and irritable bowl syndrome.
Have you ever seen an electron microscope picture of a "dust
mite?" Can you say, "Science fiction movie?" Well,
there's another mite that's difficult to see even under a microscope
and it likes to get under the top layer of skin and lay it's eggs.
It's a "parasitic mite." The doctor will tell you it's
called "scabies." They
are very contagious.
Scabies mites burrow, or tunnel, under the outer layer of skin.
Scabies causes pimple-like irritations known as the scabies rash.
These mites lay eggs under the skin and feed on blood. The mites
are about the size of a pinhead, are nearly transparent, and usually
cannot be seen.
Symptoms of scabies:
The most common symptom of scabies is extreme itching, particularly
at night. The skin becomes red and blistered. The itching is the
result of an allergic reaction to the mites and their waste.

The most common areas of skin affected by scabies
include: Between the toes and fingers, around the wrist, folds of
the elbow, armpits, belt line, abdomen, genitalia, nipples, buttocks,
and the groin. Babies and small children may get it on the face,
scalp or soles of the feet.
The symptoms of scabies usually appear from two to six
weeks after becoming infested. However, people who have
previously had scabies can show symptoms within a few days.
How do you get scabies?
Scabies is transferred by direct skin-to-skin contact. It can also
be transferred by contact with clothes or bedding that has been
contaminated by an infected person. A very common way to get scabies
is to shake hands with an infected person. It can also be transmitted
during sexual contact.
You cannot get scabies from pets. Scabies mites
only infest humans. Scabies mites can only survive for three or
four days if they are away from the human body.
You are contagious and can spread scabies until all the mites and
eggs are killed by a treatment.
It's important to start treatment immediately. The longer you wait,
the more the mites will spread.
Everyone living with an infected person, as well as intimate contacts,
should be treated. Everyone should be treated at the same time to
prevent re-infestation with scabies from other persons who might
be infected, but do not have any symptoms yet.
Also, the infected persons clothing and bedding needs
to be washed in hot water and ironed to kill the mites and all of
Fortunately, there is a very safe
and effective scabies treatment. This treatment
not only eliminates and kills the scabies mites, but also the eggs.
It will end the itching and stop the pain and sores. Best of all,
it has none of the dangerous side effects of many prescription medications.
The best treatment for scabies is Dermisil.
It's pretty scary to hear there could be some parasite "enemies"
living under your skin! Fortunately, it's not an everyday occurrence
for the general population, but there are plenty more that are.
There are parasites that can take up residence "inside your
Human parasites consist of tiny protozoa and amoebae which can
only be seen under a microscope, and parasitic worms and flukes,
which are larger. The small protozoa and amoebae are spread to people
by air, water, food, insects, animals, and human contact. Parasitic
worms are usually acquired when one ingests contaminated meat.
It is the small human parasites that pose the greatest
risk to our health. These tiny protozoa and amoebae can
travel from the intestines to the bloodstream, muscles, and vital
organs where they can impose considerable damage on their hosts.
In their resting stage or cyst stage, these parasites are very infectious.
They are very small and light, so they can float in the air and
become inhaled. Parasites have been linked to cancer, rheumatoid
disease, asthma, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, pyorrhea, and other
Pinworms (enterobius follicularis) – This
is one of the most common human parasites in the U.S. This worm
makes its home in the host’s colon, but it lays eggs outside
of the host’s body. Transmission can occur through unclean
hands, clothes, and bed sheets.
Symptoms: irritation and
scratching in the anal area.
Hookworms (necator americanus) – This is
an intestinal human parasite that begins it’s life outside
of the body, in soil or water, where humans become infected. We
can drink water that contains hookworm larvae, or we can ingest
contaminated fruits and vegetables. This worm attaches itself to
the human intestines where it drinks blood (this worm actually has
Symptoms: weakness, abdominal
pain, nausea, diarrhea, anemia.
Roundworms (ascaris lumbricoides) – One
of the most common human parasites in the entire world, these worms
are as large as a writing pencil. Roundworm infections are diseases
of the digestive tract and other organ systems caused by nematodes.
Nematodes are parasitic worms with long, cylindrical bodies. People
are infected by ingesting the eggs which can be in the soil, fruits,
and vegetables. The eggs find their way from the intestines to various
organs where they can cause severe damage.
Symptoms: Weight loss, weakness,
infection, abdominal pain.
Tapeworms (taenia solium, diphyllobothrium latum,
and taenia saginata) – Common in dogs and cats but rare in humans.
To become infected with this parasite, one must swallow fleas that
are infected with tapeworm larvae. This worm can take-up residence
in the intestines where it will steal valuable nutrients and expel
dangerous waste. The human host infected with this worm may not show
Symptoms: mineral imbalance,
bloating and gas, dizziness, hunger pains, “fuzzy” thinking,
digestive problems, sensitivity to touch, and allergies.
Liver Fluke (clonorchis sinensis) - A flat
worm that attacks the host’s liver by causing inflammation and
making holes. It can survive inside a human host for approximately
30 years. Humans acquire this parasite through eating undercooked
fish, contaminated vegetables, human feces used as fertilizer, or
by drinking (or swimming) in contaminated water.
an enlarged liver, pain in the right side of the body, depression,
edema, vertigo, bile stones, and cancer.
Giardia lamblia – After pinworm, this
is the most common parasitic infection in the U.S. , with several
million cases occuring annually. Giardia resides in the intestine
(or gall bladder) of it’s host and is spread by fecal contamination
and through water. Poor sanitation and unsafe sexual practices contribute
to the spread of this parasite. Since it is resistant to chlorination,
Giardia can be found in tap water, but it can be found in natural
streams as well.
Symptoms: abdominal pain,
food sensitivity, vitamin deficiency, diarrhea.
Entamoeba histolytica – This one-celled
organism produces a disease called amebiasis. It can be found in
water and damp environments, in soil, and it can contaminate fruits
and vegetables. This protozoan spreads through fecal contamination.
Poor sanitation contributes to infection, unsafe sexual practices,
and it can spread through crops that are fertilized with human waste.
Although most people with E. histolytica don’t have symptoms,
this parasites is the leading cause of death by protozoa after malaria.
Symptoms: abdominal pain,
weight loss, weakness, diarrhea.
Cryptosporidium – A single celled parasite
that can infect the digestive tract, causing serious gastrointestinal
problems. Once again, this parasite is spread when something has
come in contact with feces, then finds its way to a person’s
mouth. Cryptosporidium can be widely found in the outdoors. It can
contaminate public water supplies, and lakes and streams. It can
also be spread by food handlers who work in restaurants, as well
as child daycare workers. Unsafe sexual practice is another way
it can be spread.
Symptoms: stomach pain, diarrhea,
Toxoplasma gondii - a common, crescent
shaped parasite that invades the central nervous system. Humans
become infected with this organism by eating undercooked meat or
by handling infected cat litter, which can contain eggs. Most people
have been exposed to this parasite and show antibodies for it, but
only few individuals show symptoms. Those with a compromised immune
system are more susceptible.
symptoms, fever, chills, fatique, headache.
Human parasite infections are difficult to diagnose because many
exhibit only vague symptoms, or no symptoms at all. The
following symptoms, however, may indicate human parasite infection:
• Diarrhea with foul-smelling stool that becomes worse in
the later part of the day
• Sudden changes in bowel habits (e.g. constipation that is
now soft and watery stool)
• Constant rumbling and gurgling in the stomach area unrelated
to hunger or eating
• Heartburn or chest pain
• Flulike symptoms such as coughing, fever, and nasal congestion
• Food allergy
• Itching around the nose, ears, and anus, especially at night
• Loss of weight with constant hunger
• Anxiety (caused by the metabolic waste products of the
Other symptoms of human parasite infections include anemia,
blood in the stool, bloating, diarrhea, gas, loss of appetite, intestinal
obstruction, nausea, vomiting, sore mouth and gums, excessive nose
picking, grinding teeth at night, chronic fatigue, headaches, muscle
aches and pains, shortness of breath, skin rashes, depression, and
What You Don't Know About These Enemies CAN Hurt
A 46-year-old woman was admitted to the hospital because of swelling
in her left breast. An x-ray examination revealed a 2 x 2 cm nodule
in the subcutaneous tissue. Breast cancer was suspected and the
resection was performed. When her breast skin was cut open, a white
string like parasite came out. This shows the parasite taken from
the patient. Neither head nor mouth was observed. This parasite
is called a Plerocercoid of Spirometra erinaceieuropaei. Spirometra
erinaceieuropaei is a parasite of dogs and cats. Humans become infected
with the larval stage (plerocercoid) of this parasite.
It's disgusting isn't it? I only included this to help you understand
that parasites are very real in our modern world.. in "civilized"
society. They don't care where we live. They're just looking for
There are 132 known different types of parasites and worms
that can survive (and thrive!) in the human body. Most
of these "enemies" live inside your colon and small
intestine. A few get into your internal organs too (lungs, liver,
thyroid, stomach, gallbladder, kidneys, pancreas, etc.) and on occasion,
under your skin (scabies) and your bloodstream. There have even
been parasite infestations found in the brain.
Every one of us are consistently being infected and re-infected
daily with parasites through food, water, air and earth. In addition
they are laying eggs inside our body, multiplying at an alarming
rate. It only makes good sense to do at least one or two parasite
cleanses a year.
Parasites and worms can cause a wide range of chronic and degenerative
health problems. In fact, any long-term cure for almost any disease
and chronic ailment must incorporate some form of serious "parasite
cleansing" in addition to other therapies applied.
Although we'd rather not think about it, a lot of people reading
this article are a host to parasites.
Most people know nothing about parasites, or even want to know,
but we should, because they can hurt our health in serious ways.
Just because we haven't "dropped dead" yet, doesn't mean
that their destructive power is not at work inside our bodies right
now, "setting us up" for a serious health problem in the
near future and a weakened immune system.
Many health practitioners believe that not only do parasites result
in symptoms such as those listed above, but they also may be responsible
for a number of other health problems. These include environmental
illness, hypoglycemia, Crohn's disease, long-standing obesity, depression,
upper respiratory tract ailments, and endometriosis.
Parasites cause these effects because of what they do in
- Destroy cells faster than cells can be regenerated.
- Produce toxic substances and allergic reactions.
- Irritate and invade body tissue, including the skin and intestinal
- Put pressure on body organs and cause organ obstructions.
- Depress immune system function while activating immune system
- Result in mal-absorption of nutrients. (Even with a healthy
If you've never done a "parasite
cleanse" at least once in your life.. the time
is now! Your health may depend on it.
This can all be done "naturally" without painful medical
procedures. Body care doesn't have to be painful. There are many
herbal packages that will naturally cleanse your entire body.
