Is your Gut Healthy?
The number one priority in healing a sick body is to look primarily at the health of the digestive system by looking at the gut microbiome, more commonly known as the gut bacteria.
As Natural Therapists, we believe (ostensibly from the teachings of Hippocrates 2,500 years ago) that bacterial balance in your body is what determines your health as the good bacteria in your gut is intrinsically linked to your immune system.
Common Signs you Potentially have a Bacterial Overgrowth:-
- Tired a lot
- Sleep problems
- Constant itching especially the anus
- No appetite
- Flu-like symptoms
- Skin problems
- Digestive problems
- Gas and/or bloating
If the parasites in your gut are out of control then they will be feeding off essential nutrients that you are consuming. This will, over time, cause a depletion of essential vitamins, minerals and trace elements and will, eventually, have a profound adverse influence on your general health.
Who is Susceptible to Parasites?
Everybody is a potential victim of parasites proliferating in their gut, especially if you eat meat, are around animals or drink contaminated water. People tend to de-worm their pets but forget that their own bodies need de-worming on a regular basis.
What are the Most Common Parasites Found in the Gut?
Symptoms – have trouble gaining weight, abdominal cramping, appendix pains, liver, gallbladder and pancreas issues or lung problems
- Pin worms
Symptoms – sleep problems, itchy anus, joint pain or female problems
Secretes a digestive fluid that liquefies your colon walls so they can eat it
These are one of the most common infections.
Symptoms – can cause pneumonia-like symptoms, breathing problems, asthma, breathing problems, fluid retention to name but a few
The main source of tapeworms is from eating sushi.
The Role of Hydrochloric Acid
The role of hydrochloric acid in the stomach is mainly to kill any bad bacteria that is in your food. If there is insufficient hydrochloric acid (ie achlorydia and most people after the age of 40 have achlorydia) then the parasites and bad bacteria in the stomach will not be killed off before they enter the small intestine.
Is There a Natural Way to Cleanse the Body of Parasites?
Everybody, whether or not you are a meat eater or have animals, should undertake a parasite cleanse on a regular basis eg say, at least every six months. There are natural remedies that are exceptionally effective in ridding the body of all known parasites. The gold standard of treating parasites is using natural remedies and are far superior to over the counter remedies as (a) natural remedies are chemical free and chemicals should not be put into the body and (b) over the counter remedies only deal with a few types of worm whereas natural remedies will kill, effectively, all the parasites within you.
