Scientists have discovered and identified at least 1000 different human parasites, and you may be infested with at least one. Some parasites can be transferred by kissing, touching, coughing and intercourse. Some are most active during the night or the full moon.
How Do I get Parasites?
Different parasites are transmitted to humans by:
- The air we breathe
- the wind along with other dust particles
- By our pets: dogs, cats, birds and even fish have parasites that can and do infect humans
- Some of the foods we eat, including beef, pork, poultry, fish and even fresh vegetables and fruits.
- Contaminated water (even the chlorinated water that comes from the faucet can harbor certain parasites and outbreaks of illness do occur).
- Mosquitoes, fleas, flies, and other insects.
- Certain types of worms (some are able to jump from the ground to your ankles and bore into your skin)
There are also parasites that live in wet grass, mud puddles, or other standing water and can penetrate bare skin.
The immune system is normally able to kill and eliminate many of the parasites that attack us. It is usually only when the immune system becomes overburdened that parasites become a problem. If the immune system is not able to keep up with the invading parasites, other health issues can contribute to failing health.
Recent medical studies have shown that a number of people have significant numbers of parasites living inside of them, and these parasites may cause health problems.
- Symptoms of parasite infections include:
- Skin Problems
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
