    Symptoms of Parasites
    (Gut Solutions by Brenda Watson, Leonard Smith, Susan Stockton, Stephen Holt, 2004)

    Parasites and their waste products not only cause diarrhea and mal-absorption, but can affect tissues throughout the body and cause such symptoms as:

    Diarrhea or constipation
    Irritability/ nervousness
    Persistent skin problems
    Disturbed sleep
    Muscle cramps
    Postnasal drip
    Prostatitis
    Rectal itching
    Pain in umbilicus
    Loss of or ravenous appetite
    Digestive complaints (gas, bloating, cramps)
    Granulomas (tumor-like masses that encase destroyed larva or parasites)
    Allergies
    Irritable Bowel Syndrome
    Overall fatigue
    Anemia
    Joint pain
    Teeth grinding
    Sugar Craving
    Brain fog
    Bed wetting
    Parasites may hide in the lining of the intestine or other organs and, therefore, be hard to diagnose, but once they are detected, you can take steps to eradicate them:

    Take appropriate herbal supplements..
    Avoid foods that may be contaminated, like unwashed produce, unfiltered water, sushi etc.
    Consult your physician about minimizing antibiotics, steroids, immune suppressing drugs & oral contraceptives.
    Avoid walking barefoot, especially in grassy areas used by animals.
    Avoid letting pets sleep with you or lick your face. Wear gloves to clean pet areas, esp. a litter box.
    Wear protective clothing to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes.
    Change your diet and lifestyle to exclude foods and substances known to contribute to bacterial imbalance, including refined and processed foods, sugar of any kind, alcohol, refined carbohydrates, antibiotics and steroid drugs.
    Increase fiber intake. balancing soluble and insoluble using flax.
    Drink plenty of water, at least half your body weight in ounces per day (for a 120 pound person, that means sixty ounces or seven tall glasses).
