Natural Body Detox
Parasites are living organisms that live off of a host organism. Linked with cancer, seizures, asthma and more, parasites are an invisible, yet very real, threat to health. Also, it has been estimated that most Americans harbor parasites contracted from water, food, pets or even the air we breathe. Hence, taking a natural body detox program can be a great solution to maintain good health.
Herbal Remedies to detoxify the body:
Oil of Oregano
Oil of oregano is extracted from the leaves of the flowering wild oregano plants found in remote woods. This is an anti-parasitic herb. When ingested, it helps get rid of intestinal worms. Applied externally, it keeps away lice, bed bugs, mosquitoes, fleas etc. You could use this oil up to three times a day. Add two to three drops to a glass of water with fresh lemon juice.
Wormwood is being used for centuries as an effective treatment for intestinal parasites. It also has other health benefits since it increases the acidity of the stomach and also improves production of bile. Hence, it is a powerful remedy for those with poor digestion. Do not ingest the pure oil as it may be toxic for your body. You could take it in capsule form, as a liquid extract or in the form of tea.
Garlic contains natural anti-parasitic and antibiotic properties. It also helps support bowel movements and bowel detoxification. It is also an excellent treatment for both roundworm and tapeworm as well as giardia. Crush one clove of garlic and let sit for ten minutes. Consume at bedtime for at least 30 days.
Extra virgin Coconut Oil
Since virgin coconut oil is rich in medium chain fatty acids, it helps boost the immune system which fights against parasites. It’s also a strong antifungal agent. Consume around 6 tablespoons everyday to keep your body healthy.
Herbalists recommend grinding 25 ounces of the seed and combining it with fresh juice. Consume immediately. Two to three hours later, a laxative should be taken to sweep the intestines.
The other herbal remedies include black walnut tincture, olive leaf, turmeric, Goldenseal, Anise, Barberry, Neem, Propolis, Oregon grape and more. Also remember to focus on a high fiber diet.
