Intestinal Parasites and Recommended Cleanses
A truly healthy gut is difficult to maintain in the modern world due to the presence of intestinal parasites that can include:
  • Hymenolepis (tape worm)
  • Giardia
  • Amoebas
  • Trichinella
  • Strongyloides nematode
  • Cryptosporidia
  • Trichuris (whip worm)
  • Liver flukes
And this list just elucidates a few. Thee are countless more disease causing parasites.
For millennia, humans have coevolved with these creatures, some of which cause disease, and some who simply happy to exist as parasites in your intestinal microbiome. However, depending on the state of the host’s immune system, these parasites may contribute to chronic complex disease by increasing inflammation in the gut, impeding nutrient absorption, excreting toxins, and causing leaky gut syndrome that also affects the brain.
