If we’re constantly bombarded with parasites, how can we avoid being infected with them? We can minimize the infection by following healthy practices:
- Wash hands frequently, as this is the primary source of contamination
- Keep hands away from the mouth, nose, and eyes
- Use a good air filter to keep homes air free of contaminants
- Thoroughly clean vegetables and fruits before eating, especially organically grown products
- Rinse off meats before preparation and cook thoroughly
- Drink only properly filtered water
- Eat yogurt or drink buttermilk frequently, as this helps replenish normal intestinal bacteria
- Keep your pets clean and free of parasites
- Dispose of pet wastes immediately and wear a mask when doing so.
- Keep your home, carpet, and furniture clean
- Keep your home free of bugs, mold, mildew, and more
- If your immune system is challenged or impaired, take high quality vitamins and mineral supplements
While the parasites that live inside humans can be painful, destructive to health and even deadly, the treatment of these parasites in humans can also have serious side effects. Often treatment requires the use of harsh and dangerous chemicals or drugs and sometimes is ineffective in eliminating these parasites.
Many people around the world are infested with parasites (including the United States). Recent medical studies indicate that American men live shorter lives of up to 4 years because of parasites. Other medical studies find that the average male carries up to two pounds of parasites inside of his body.
The intestine, liver, circulatory system, brain, skin and other organs may be inhabited by various parasites such as giardia, cryptosporidium, candida, trichomonas, taenia(tapeworms), ascaris(round-worms), amoeba, entamoeba, cestodes, coccidia, microsporidia, strongyloides, trichuris (hookworms), helminthes, and others.
