News) It’s not always easy to spot parasitic infections since not all of
them exhibit symptoms. However, there are cases that can cause severe
conditions and even be fatal. No matter the case, it’s still best
to cleanse the body every once in a while to prevent parasites from
invading and thriving in your organs.
cleanses are not just for those who are already suffering from the
symptoms of infection; they are also for those who just want to make sure
that they are free from any trace of parasites. Eliminating these
organisms is very easy to do, you just have to know which items can help
you with what you’re trying to achieve. To help you, here are some herbs
that can be utilized in order to get rid of parasites and
prevent future infections from happening:
- Garlic — This widely used herb is
known for its ability to kill not just parasites but bacteria, viruses,
and fungi as well. Moreover, garlic also has potent antioxidant effects
that counteract the toxins released by these pathogens. These properties
are due to the presence of allicin and ajoene, the former of which is
initially present as alliin before it’s converted into its bioactive
form. To get the most out of garlic, you have to crush, juice, or chop
up the garlic so that the enzyme alliinase can convert alliin into
- Cucumber seeds — If you are
suffering from tapeworms in your digestive tract then cucumber seeds are
just what you need since these contain the enzyme erepsin which
does the job for you. Simply grind the seeds into a powder and add one
teaspoon of it to your smoothies to cleanse out your system. Even if you
do not have parasites, you can still take this as a preventive measure.
- Papaya — Eating papaya is
a sweet and enjoyable way to get rid of parasites, especially since
there are various recipes that you can try out. One of these is
fermented papayas in apple cider vinegar, which will produce not just
cultured papaya that you can eat, but brine that you can drink as
well. Another is by making a smoothie consisting of one papaya, a
tablespoon of organic virgin coconut oil, and a cup of coconut milk.
Although the papaya fruit is already great, it isn’t even the most
powerful part of the plant. The seeds are stronger when it comes to
killing parasites. However, they aren’t as delicious as the fruit when
eaten alone so you can try combining them with honey, which is also a
known anti-parasitic food.
- Clove — The most powerful
germicidal compound in herbs, which is known as eugenol, is
abundantly found in cloves. This substance easily travels along the
bloodstream where it can kill parasites, as well as their larvae and
eggs, that it encounters on its way. Because of its potent effects, it
can be used to treat malaria, tuberculosis, cholera, scabies, and
many other diseases.
- Pumpkin seeds — Pumpkin seeds are
great against schistosomiasis and tapeworm infections because
they can kill not just the grown parasite but their eggs as well.
These properties can be attributed to the presence of
cucurbitin and a natural fat that is toxic to the eggs. To enjoy
these benefits, you would have to consume half a cup of ground pumpkin
seeds, which you can add to your salads or smoothies.
- Turmeric — You can mine a lot of
health benefits from this golden herb and its anti-parasitic property is
just one of those. However, turmeric is not easily absorbed by the body
so you might have to either eat large amounts of it or pair it with
other substances, such as coconut oil and black pepper, that can improve
- Ginger — Since they are close
relatives, ginger shares most of the benefits that turmeric
has, including its ability to kill parasites. In addition to that, it
also improves stomach acid production so that you won’t even have to
worry about getting infected in the first place. The form in which you
consume ginger can have an effect on the benefits that it contributes.
If you want to get rid of mucus then you should eat fresh ginger. If
warming the digestive system is your goal then ground ginger might be
the better option. But you can always try eating both types to enjoy
- Cayenne — Among the different
cayenne varieties, the best one is the African cayenne since it is said
to destroy fungus, mold, and parasites immediately upon contact.
Moreover, it can enhance the antiparasitic properties of other herbs
when they are used together.
you’ve never tried cleansing your body from parasites before, now might be
a good time to give it a try especially since most of these natural
remedies can easily be found in most homes. (Related: Parasite
