Eliminate Parasites from Your Body with This Remedy

I bet you didn’t know that parasites are our planet’s most prevalent life form or that elephantiasis—a tremendously disfiguring disease—is caused by roundworms. Or that roughly 209 million people around the globe are infected with pinworm.

The truth is that parasites are nearly unavoidable and way more present than most of us dare to imagine. You read that right. They are common! They are in our water supply, dirt, food and more.

In fact, many diagnosed and undiagnosed health issues can actually be from undetected parasitic infections. Humans can become the residence of over 300 different kinds of parasitic worms and over 70 species of protozoa.

Parasites In Humans

Obviously, discussing over 370 kinds of parasites would take a lot of time, so instead, let’s briefly discuss the top five parasites in the U.S., according to the CDC:

Chagas disease: Trypanosoma cruzi, the parasite that causes Chagas disease, has infected more than 300,000 people in the United States, and more than 300 infants are born yearly with it. The triatomine bug bites a human and then deposits its excrement in the opening, which is how Chagas disease spreads. Long-term digestive, cardiac and neurological conditions can result from Chagas disease.

Toxoplasma gondii: Toxoplasma is frequently transmitted by playing with or caring for cats, hence the nickname “cat poop parasite.” More than 60 million Americans have toxoplasma gondii infections that are persistent. Additionally, unwashed fruits and vegetables and undercooked meat can harbor the parasite. Toxoplasma can increase the chance of birth defects if a pregnant mother is infected.

Trichomoniasis: Trichomoniasis is a sexually transmitted infection prevalent in the United States, though it is very treatable. In the United States, 3.7 million people are affected by the protozoan parasite, but only about 30% of people will have symptoms.

Toxocara: The good news about this one is that approximately 13.9 percent of the population has antibodies that will fight against this parasitic infection. But for the rest of us… we risk contracting it whenever we touch a cat or a dog. Most of these infections occur in children, who often subsequently suffer from eye disease and even blindness.

Cysticercosis: The brain and muscles of people are among the regions affected by this tapeworm parasite, and it comes from eating raw pork. This parasite’s larval cysts develop inside the body and cause seizures and other problems. Every year, at least 1,000 people are hospitalized with cysticercosis in the United States.

Now… that was some brutal truth, but necessary to know because you really don’t want to let parasites live in your body. Besides, plenty can be done to remove parasites naturally.  And that is what we’re discussing today.

The Importance of Parasite Detox

Not only can many parasites be removed with natural parasite protocols, but you may even want to consider doing it regularly, like once a year.

Listen, it’s better just to accept that you’re highly likely to contract one or some of the little squirmers sometime in your life. Some people don’t want to know about it, and maybe it’s true… you could go your whole life and never experience a single symptom. But whether you know about them or not, they affect you one way or another. Moreover, parasites can be behind perpetual health issues like anemia, digestive problems, and chronic fatigue.

Here are more health problems links to parasites you may not have known about:

  1. Joint and muscle pain
  2. Skin problems (such as skin rashes)
  3. Sleep problems and restlessness
  4. Auto-immune disorders
  5. Stomach painEliminate Parasites from Your Body with This Remedy - parasites
  6. Neurological disorders (including autism)
  7. Fever
  8. Eye problems
  9. Bedwetting
  10. UTI’s
  11. Teeth grinding
  12. Intestinal issues (like leaky gut)
  13. Nausea and vomiting
  14. Seizures
  15. Headache and disorientation

Several variables affect how parasites act, like the type of parasite, your health, age, and the duration of the infection. However, many multifaceted herbs can be used for multiple parasitic infections. For example, walnut hulls are known to kill: ringworms, threadworms, gut protozoa, fungus, pinworms, tapeworms, and other intestinal parasites. So, if you think it may be time to do a little parasite cleanse, you might find the below home remedy for killing parasites rather helpful.

Many herbs and foods can be used to kill off parasites, like garlic, pumpkin seeds, coconut oil, thyme, wormwood and oregano. Adding these herbs and foods to your diet will help double your parasite detox efforts over the next few weeks. You should also steer clear of sugar and grains… even fruits, because these things are food for parasites. Stick to vegetables, seeds, and nuts while on your parasite cleanse for the best results.

Natural Remedy for Parasite Cleanse

Ingredients and their purpose:
  • 10 drops cinnamon oil or 1 teaspoon powdered – kills disease-causing fungi, viruses, and parasites and is antibacterial and soothing to the digestive tract.
  • ½ teaspoon powdered ginger – the volatile oils and abundant antioxidants in ginger fight several parasites, including giardia.  It’s also antibacterial, antifungal, and calming to the digestive tract.
  • 6 whole cloves – Cloves can dissolve the casing around parasitic eggs.  Studies have proven the beneficial effects of clove against the intestinal protozoans Blastocystis and Giardia and the blood fluke Schistosoma.
  • 7 drops of olive leaf extract – Olive leaf extract fights over 50 common disease-causing organisms, including herpes, influenza A, Polio, Salmonella typhimurium and Candida. It also eradicates Amoebi, cryptosporidia, giardia, pinworm, tapeworm, ringworm, malaria protozoa and roundworm.
  • 7 drops of black walnut hull extract – kills worms mentioned above, Acanthamoeba, and the protozoan Toxoplasma gondii—works on adult parasites, larvae, and eggs.
  • 1 teaspoon base herb – like raspberry leaf, white peony, or lemon balm leaf.

These are the 10 medicinal seeds you should plant for a complete at-home farmacy.

How to Use

The following recipe is for an anti-parasitic tea that you can drink once daily to help kill off and eliminate multiple parasites.

After completing a parasite cleanse, it is usually advisable to allow some time before starting another one. For maximum parasite detox, drink your homemade parasite tea every day for two weeks, then take a week off, followed by another two weeks on the tea. Then resume your diet as usual. This allows the body to rest and replenish its natural balance. Depending on the individual and their circumstances, this rest period can range from a few weeks to several months.

The Bottom Line

It’s important to remember that prevention is crucial when it comes to parasitic infections. Practicing good hygiene, maintaining a healthy diet, and ensuring proper food preparation can all contribute to reducing the risk of parasitic infections.

If you suspect you have a parasitic infection or have concerns about parasites, it’s best to seek guidance from a healthcare professional to determine the appropriate timing for subsequent parasite cleanses based on your specific needs.

I’m assuming this is not recommended for breastfeeding mothers?

You can safely eat 3 cloves of raw garlic with food and pumpkin seeds. I was surprised diatomaceous earth isnt on here, that’s also a good one. I only use the 3 I mentioned with success and while nursing.

You did not say how much boiling water to use?

Did you see the pictures?

I have micobacterium avium complex … is there anything I could use? Thank you!

Hi Bev,

You can use herbal antibiotics if you have MAC infection, such as garlic, turmeric, oregano, ginger, echinacea, goldenseal or licorice root, to name a few.

Many blessings and good health!

Can I use essential oils for the clove, cinnamon and ginger instead and put them in a capsule. If so, what type of capsule?

Hi Val,

Ingesting essential oils can be dangerous and is generally not recommended without proper guidance from a qualified healthcare professional or a certified aromatherapist. Essential oils are highly concentrated extracts derived from plants and can be toxic when taken internally, especially in large quantities. If you want to take herbs in capsule form, it is best to use powdered herbs. You can source them in health food stores, or online herbal shops.

Many blessings and good health!

Does it matter what kind of cinnamon

Hi Michele,

For everyday use and health considerations, Ceylon cinnamon is generally considered the better option due to its lower coumarin content. However, if you prefer a stronger and more robust cinnamon flavor, you may opt for Cassia cinnamon.

Many blessings and good health!

Where do you get your oils at? I’ve never heard of olive leaf extract. has this olive leaf extract (liquid). I take this.

You can make it yourself with any dried herb placed in a good quality oil maybe use avocado oil for example and leave for 4 weeks shaking every day to get the volatile oils out of the leaf keep in cool cupboard then seive out the herb and there is your extracted oil.

Awesome. Thank you.

Essential oils should never be ingested as they are too concentrated and can damage the digestive tract. If you are going to recommend this recipe perhaps you should change the oil to the herb . Essential oils can damage the liver and kidneys

This is a rubbish reply, pure essential oils can be ingested. There are two schools of aromatherapy, the English method says no most probably because the oils are broken down with other products, the French method uses EO’s therapeutically and effectively, I have been ingesting them for years with no side effects and many health benefits. I would go so far as to say I would not be alive today if I had listened to doctors and nay sayers about EO’s.

Delwyn, if you ingesting something that damages your liver or kidneys, there is no apparent sign to notice until it is too late. To really prove that you haven’t been harmed by EOs then we would need to study some biopsies of you organs. It wouldn’t hurt much and you wouldn’t notice anything after, but since there is a risk it would need to be done after you have left the body. I encourage you to donate your body to scientific study.

I am a clinical aromatherapist and in France and Switzerland they have doctors who specialise in giving oils in microdoses to take internally. Anyone who hasn’t trained as doctor specialising in this should not recommend oils to ingest or doses. So no, not rubbish. Many people have ended up on life support due to ingestion of essential oils damaging their liver and kidneys. Not to mention the long term effects it had on their skin as a side effect. Essential oils should always be diluted when used topically and never used neat on sensitive tissue such as the inside of the mouth, the digestive tract and other mucous membranes. Because it has not affected you does not mean it won’t affect countless others. I guess you have just been lucky.

Not true at all. Essential oils can be digested. You just need to know how to do that properly.
It has been practiced in Europe for centuries
Obviously, you need to be sure it is a right oil for you/your issue. But most importantly, the dosage.
Don’t listen to Big Pharma stooges.

Natalia, how do you know what is the right EO and right dose for the person? Yes, of course things can be safe if diluted enough. But if that is the case why use EO when a lot of the plant’s natural components have been removed? Using tea or extract is going to be safer unless the EO production is removing a toxic component. I used to work in Big Pharma and know their fraud too. Just because it is natural doesn’t make it safe.

Just like in anything, the knowledge and experience on the subject is a key.
If you are not sure, find a doctor or a certified practitioner who can make a recommendation for you.
The advantage of taking oils vs tinctures, is the oils superior potency and a higher absorption into the bloodstream.

While it is true that many essential oils should not be ingested, certain essential oils, like cinnamon, can be consumed safely, according to the FDA. Here you can see the complete list of EOs that are generally considered safe. Powdered cinnamon is another option that is listed in the article.

I have been taking essential oils for the past 3 years, as I feel that I am getting sick. It works like a charm. Of course the quantities are minuscule.

I would throw the stevia out of your cupboard unless you want to be infertile. Natives to parts of Paraguay used it for centuries as a powerful contraceptive that destroys fertility. Birth rates have plummeted since it’s use in the Western World.

Here’s an idea. Make a little extra money and have a 1-Click Purchase Pack of your recommended cures. I’d click it. Hard to go shop for all the ingredients.

Hi Keiko,

Thank you so much for your suggestion. We will definitely keep it in mind.

Many blessings and good health!

I just loaded up my shopping cart on Amazon. I found it all there, though, I hate supporting Amazon.

Other than the cinnamon oil – or rather powdered cinnamon as suggested – the other ingredients are extracts not essential oils

On the cinnamon oil is it cinnamon bark or cinnamon leaf oil? I would think to equal inky a tsp of ground you would only need 1 or 2 drops as cinnamon oil is highly potent.

Cinnamon bark is usually more concentrated, though many cinnamon oils may be from both. Just make sure whatever you buy is of good quality. You can reduce the amount of oil in the recipe if you don’t feel comfortable consuming that much. However, studies have been conducted with much higher doses with favorable results.

On the olive leaf extract you might want to it a disclaimer to watch blood pressure, especially if they are taking blood pressure meds. Olive leaf can drop the blood pressure especially when combined with meds.

What is the “Base Herb” that is noted in the Parasite Cleanse?

Hi Tres, I used raspberry leaf as a base herb. I did list a couple of others as well. You can choose whatever base herb you want. I hope that helps. 🙂

Where do we purchase these things from? I live in a teeny tiny town and we don’t have anything like this available here.

Hello from Australia. Nicole, are you able to do the animals (dogs and cats) at the same time with this parasite cleanse? Thanks Glenda

A lot of the extracts I’ve found in the store are tictures with an alcohol base, is it possible to use the capsules instead and just open them?

Hello. How many days do you drink the tea? A week? Sorry if I missed the answer. Thanks.

It is stated in the write up. Kindly suggested to read the entire article.

Can this be used with children? We have your book and use many recipes for my husband and I but I do not know safe measurements for our children.
We homestead and I worry sometimes that with all the raw and untreated foods we may be more susceptible to parasites. The kids often have loose stools and sometimes belly cramps. They are not sick and this generally passes after a day otherwise I would be taking them to a doctor. Ages range from 2-15 so I’m looking for a family recipe to try , maybe make one big pot each night?

I am wondering this too ^

how to get rid of scabies. I am independent, 75 years young, and got scabies a year ago. My doctor gave me NIX, and I have been in a lose-lose battle with it since then. My problem is that I can’t reach everywhere with this crem and always leave a spot with scabies, which returns with vengeance. If I can drink something for it it would solve this problem. Help! Due to past injuries, my range of motion is very limited.

Nix is for head lice. Scabies burrow into the skin and lay their eggs there. I have had them twice and the treatment is Permethrin Cream, head to toe (you may have to get someone to help you and they MUST WEAR GLOVES as it is spread by skin to skin contact). Then Ivermectin pills. Repeat in 7 days as that’s when the new buried eggs hatch!! You may even need to do it a 3rd time. They are vicious and hard to get rid of, but the only live 24 hours outside of your body so you should also wash all bedding and clothes.
They will drive you insane!! Literally.

I made my first tea I was dreading the taste but infact it wasn’t to bad .can you make up enough for a few days ?

Can I use Blackberry leaf instead of Raspberry?

What ratio in milligrams would I use for olive leaf extract. My local store did not have the drops. The capsules I have her 500 mg. Not sure how much to use per serving

You lightly discuss olive leaf extract in this article. You don’t say how to use it at all. Can you elaborate for ringworm please.
