food grade Diatomacious earth
You may not want to read this section but believe me we all have parasites! Some are our friendly bacteria that aid digestion and manufacture needed materials for us, but there are many others just sucking up our food and often damaging us with their toxic waste. Our most common parasites live for a year, lay up to 300,000 eggs per day and sap our energy or food resources! Some are very serious, especially if they move into essential organs!
Doctors rarely tell you about them but ignoring a problem will not make it go away! Funny thing is that our Vet asks us to deworm our pets all the time. We get most of the same parasites they do, including tapeworm, roundworm, pinworm, hookworm, etc.
Doctors estimate that at between 85% to 95% of North Americans have parasites living in their bodies, causing illness, disease and "undiagnosable" troubles. Parasites are NOT just a Third World problem!
You likely have parasites living in your bowels, your bloodstream, your internal organs... even your brain!
Now if a worm wants to poop in my intestines, that is not so bad but when they do it in my lungs (round worm) or liver (liver fluke) or brain (pork tapeworm) that calls for strong action to rid myself of those suckers! For the stout of heart, visit this Ohio State website showing the life cycles of many common parasites. The pin worm is most common, as it deposits eggs on the anus which can be picked up and spread by hands, bedding, clothing, bathroom surfaces, towels, etc. If one family member has them, all will get infected!
Fortunately there are simple measures to take, but since most parasites have (4) stages to their life, it takes time, usually 2 months or longer to break the cycle. They start as an egg, often on fresh vegetables, and are ingested by many animals. Then most hatch to the cyst stage, then larva then mature stage, living one or more stages in the body, soil or another animal. Popular natural remedys include wormwood, clove, black walnut hulls, garlic, etc. but most of these are very risky in large doses. I always look for safer more natural approaches.
The foremost approach is to maintain good health and thus a strong immune system, so your natural immune system can control them. Unfortunately, we are so overloaded with toxins, there may be no reserve resources to draw on.
Next would be to fast monthly, to help flush out the mature egg laying residents in your intestines and to flush out fecal deposits. Third, I would take food grade Diatomacious earth, a flour like powder made of glassy shells of sea diatoms, which abrades small parasites or eggs, causing them to dry up and die. It is included in most grains, at up to 2%, to kill bugs and their eggs or grubs and is FDA approved. A tablespoon daily for a month should do the trick. Another very safe and effective material is MSM, a natural source of sulfur which seems to prevent adhesion of parasites in the intestines. It can literally be eaten by the handful and has many other essential health benefits including stronger nails, hair and cells. Clinical testing suggests MSM has activity against a variety of parasites, including roundworms. It seems to discourage these infections by competing for binding receptor sites at the mucus membrane surface in the intestinal tract. ( Oregon Health Sciences University).

While all of the above treat mostly the intestinal population, daily doses of colloidal silver circulates within your blood, where most eggs travel and of course reaches every organ, where many parasites settle in.
For prevention, wash your hands, food preparation areas and fresh foods grown in the soil, with a bactericidal solution or to avoid that Hospital food taste, use colloidal silver, which also kills the eggs rather then just flushing them off. Also, eating spicy and garlic foods can help wipe them out before they take hold.
Are there another zillion ideas on what to use? Sure, but most were thought of by Doctors, with their "Take these poisons, but not too much or you may also die!" attitude or only kill off one stage of the cycle and you reinfect yourself monthly.
