How to kill a human parasite? 6 powerful foods to eat
Having parasites is not on anybody’s bucket list. But that doesn’t mean you will not encounter them at some point. Unfortunately this is not limited to impoverished countries, as human parasites can be picked up from various sources: raw fish (sushi), undercooked meat (beef or pork), even unwashed fruits. You are especially vulnerable to the attack of parasites when travelling abroad or eating out in places with poor hygiene. According to Center for Disease Control (CDC), several millions of Americans currently live with parasitic infection. How can you know if you have one? There are few symptoms to look for:
- Anal itching
- Low immune system
- Blood in stools
- Mood swings, anxiety or depression
- Sugars (carbohydrates)
- Bread, cakes, cookies, cereal, pasta etc.
1 GarlicWe discovered so far garlic is not only recommended to beat candida, but also has strong anti-toxic abilities when fighting most common intestinal worms: giardia and roundworms.
2 Green onionsThese power bundles are jam packed with anti-parasitic sulfur compounds. Onion juice is very effective against human parasites, especially tapeworm and thread worms. Most recommended dosage is to drink 2 tsp. of onion juice 2 times a day for about two weeks. Just like garlic, green onions when crushed, release an allinnase enzyme.
3 CoconutWe love this plant more and more. Coconut oil is most commonly recommended when fighting parasites. Why? It is rich in lauric acid which completely detoxifies the system and kills or inactivates protozoa, most ringworm species and Giardia lambia - even in the first stages of their development. For best results, drink fresh coconut juice and eat the coconut meat first thing in the morning, followed by 4 hours of fasting.
4 Pumpkin and sunflower seedsMany researchers proved that both of these seeds contain natural chemicals helping to paralyze the human parasites. They are not killed instantly, rather they are prevented from attaching to our stomach and they get flushed out by our natural digestion.
5 Papaya seedsThis sweet oriental fruit has most amazing capacities to kill the common human parasites, including tapeworm. Recent study by Maryland Medical Center and Asian Pacific Journal of Tropical Medicine showed that a group of people who got to eat papaya seeds mixed with honey each day cleared their system in 23 out of 30 cases. It is often recommended for frequent travelers to eat a spoon of papaya seeds each morning on an empty stomach. It is also worth remembering to chew the seeds thoroughly instead of eating them in full.
6 PomegranatePomegranate also has a strong potential when fighting parasites. According to Dr. Ann Louise Gittleman, pomegranate juice can eradicate the more common intestinal worms when drank consistently for 4-5 days at a time. Make sure to drink plenty of this juice to profit from the full benefits – ideally 4 glasses each day. Other foods to include in your diet are:
- Cayenne pepper
- Bitter melon
- Carrot juice and cranberry juice
- Fennel seed tea
- Pungent spices
- Fermented foods
