Why You Could Need a Herbal Parasite Cleanse

Do you find it difficult to wake up in the morning? As creepy as it may sound, your tiredness may be caused by parasites in your body. These parasites can survive for years by feeding off of our cells. A herbal parasite cleanse is one way of ridding the body of these dangerous invaders.

Why is a Parasite Cleanse Necessary

A parasite cleanse may be in order because no area in your body is safe from parasites. Treatment can be difficult because medications can drive parasites from one organ to another instead of simply killing them. Because parasites drain the body of nutrients, they can cause severe health damage.

Microscopic parasites can get into your joints and eat the calcium linings of your bones. They can also eat the protein coating on your nerves and cause a disruption in the nerve signals from the brain. Microscopic parasites can cause arthritis by eating the calcium linings of bones. Large parasites, which are the worm type, are usually large enough to be seen with the naked eye and can grow up to ten or fifteen inches long.


Parasites can be contracted in a number of ways. Food or water are sources of the roundworm, amoebae and giardia. Mosquito’s are a carrier of dog heartworm, filaria and malaria, while fleas can carry dog tapeworm. Houseflies transmit amoebic cysts. You can even contract parasites such as trichomonal, giardia and amoebae through sexual contact.

Not surprisingly, these parasites can wreak havoc on our health. Symptoms can include chronic fatigue, digestive problem, allergic symptoms, joint and muscle pain, anemia or iron deficiency and skin ailments.

If you suspect that you have an infection or have been unsuccessfully treated, then you may opt to do a parasite cleanse using herbs.
