Do I Have Parasites?
If you have done any of the following, chances are you already have parasites:
- Have pets or played with pets at any time in your life. Animals, including pets, can spread 240 diseases to humans via parasites. By petting or grooming animals, you are picking up eggs that pass from your pets to yourself and other people you come into contact with – via hands, nose and mouth. When your pet (or someone else’s pet) licks their anus, they are depositing thousands of eggs onto their tongues. Do not allow animals to lick you in the face or mouth. Do not walk barefoot in places where animals have been known to defecate.
- Walked on warm or sandy soil, near feces or decaying matter
- Ate Sushi, cold cuts or other uncooked or undercooked meats (including pork, beef and fish)
- Ate raw eggs or oysters
- Ate improperly washed or contaminated fresh salads or fruits
- Consumed drinks prepared under unhygienic conditions
- Ate in premises where flies have settled on your food or drinks
- Ate in premises infested by vermin like rats, cockroaches, flies etc
- Ate in premises where wastes / rubbish are not covered, or collected near kitchen and dining areas
- Shook hands, shared drinks, kissed someone who had touched something that had parasites on it
- Inhaled dust that contains the eggs or cysts of these organisms
- Had sex with a partner infected with parasites
- Bitten by insects, animals and other living things
- Traveled or live in less developed countries at any time in your life. Airplanes are a great source for parasite transmission. Tourists, immigrants, refugees also bring a host of parasites into the country.
- Drank or washed your hands with untreated water from river, streams, lakes in any country. Drink only filtered/purified or boiled water while on camping trips.
- Swam or Washed in places where the water is contaminated. For example, many countries still dispose untreated / treated sewerage and other wastes into rivers and coastal waters or bury them in landfills.
- Come into contact with high germ infested places like public toilets and places where pets, wild animals and humans share. Do not put your hands in your mouth or touch your face when you are in public places.
- Come into contact with children. Young children are at high risk of contracting parasitic infection because they put their unwashed hands in their mouths
- Suffered from food poisoning, constipation, diarrhea, gas and bloating, irritable bowel syndrome, joint and muscle aches and pains, anemia, allergies, skin conditions, nervousness, sleep disturbances, teeth grinding, and chronic fatigue. etc (according to Skye Weintraub, a naturopathic physician and author of “The Parasite Menace“). Skye Weintraub says, “Many parasites go undetected because they are not producing serious symptoms. It is easy to attribute feeling ill to other causes because parasitic infections look like lots of other conditions. I have seen other health problems disappear once the body has become parasite free”.
- Other Signs of Parasites in Children: Blisters appear on the inside of the lower lip, wiping of the nose, restlessness and grinding of the teeth at night, dark circles under the eyes, hyperactive, bed wetting, headaches, sensitive to light, twitching eyelid, gum, rectum, or nose bleeding are signs they may have parasites.
- If one family member is infected with parasites, the entire family will usually also be infected.
“What are Parasites?
The Dictionary Definition of Parasites: An organism that grows, feeds, and is sheltered on or in a different organism while contributing nothing to the survival of its host.
For the sake of simplicity, we have defined the following categories of harmful organisms as “Parasites” as they do not serve any useful purpose to the host, namely us:
Types of Parasites:
Ectoparasite: – organisms that live on the outer surface of the host’s body e.g ., lice, fleas, ticks, etc.
Endoparasite: – parasites that live inside the host body in tissues or organs such as blood, peritoneal cavity, brain, etc.; e.g., liver fluke, Ascaris, malaria parasites, etc. (Cestoda and Trematode)
Sporozoans: – organisms that invade the host’s cells
Facultative parasite: – An organism which is able to live either a free living or parasitic existence; e.g., Strongyloids Stercoralis of man.
Obligatory parasite: – Organism which has become completely dependent upon its host for existence.
Aberrant parasite: – Found in locations in the host where they normally do not occur; e.g., Ascaris larvae may migrate to the brain
Insidental parasite: Occurs in hosts where it does not normally occur; e.g., Fasciola normally does not occur in man but is incidental if found in man’s liver.
Periodic parasite: – Feeds on host but does not live on host; e.g., blood sucking flies.
Hyperparasite: – Parasitizes another parasite; e.g., Histomonas meleagridis (a protozoan) is hyperprsitic on the nematode worm Heterakis gallinae.
Monoxenous parasites: – Those with direct life cycles (i.e., with one host).
Heteroxenous parasites: – Those with inderect life cycles requiring an intermediate host (i.e., involves 2 or more hosts).
Heterogenetic Parasites: – One with alteration of generations e.g., Coccidial parasites and Strongyloides.
Euryxenous parasites: – Those with a broad host range.
Stenoxenous parasites: – Those with a narrow host range; e.g., host specific coccidia.
Parasitiasis: – Refers to the disease state associated with the presence of parasites in the host – an unbalanced association in which the host shows symptoms of infection.
Parasitosis: – Refers to the disease state associated with the presence of parasites in the host – an unbalanced association in which the host shows symptoms of infection.
Bacteria and Viruses:
Protozoa – making up approximately 70% of all parasites, these are microscopic one-cell organisms
Nematode – A small mass of protoplasm or cells (or multi-cell organisms) that may be pathogenic
Causing disease or capable of doing so, the most notable of which are:
Parastic Zoonoses – Diseases of non-human animals that may be transmitted to man or may be transmitted from man to non-human animals.
Parasites may do harm to their host in a number of ways, some of which are listed below:
- Mecbanical obstruction of tubular organs (ascarids, lungworms, heartworms)
- Extraction of host body fluids (hookworms, Haemonchus, ticks, fleas, etc.)
- Actual mechanical destruction of body tissues (larvae)
- Causing growths, tumors or nodules in host (Onchocera)
- Feeding on tissue of host (hookworms)
- Causing irritation to host (mite, lice)
- Causing allergic reactions (flea)
- Secreting toxic or otherwise harmful substances:
- digestive and/or proteolytic enzymes (Bot)
- antidigestive enzymes (Helminths, ascarids, tapeworms)
- hemolytic substances (Babesia)
- anticoagulants (hookworms)
- neurotoxic substances (Tapeworms, ticks)
- Transitting other metazoan parasites (fleas, mosquitoes, some flies)
- Transmitting protozoan parasites (tick, mosquitoes, some flies)
- Transmitting viruses, rickettsiae, bacteria
- Interfere with skin function (mange mites)
- Absorbing food intended for host (tapeworm)
Summary on Parasites
Over 60-90% of population have parasites (depending on where you live) – we are just not aware of it! Some parasites do not cause any deterioration to our health immediately. These “harmless” parasites just rob us of some of our life-sustaining nutrients. Other parasites can threaten our life almost immediately upon coming into contact with them. If you are unlucky to pick up a flesh-eating parasite, they may eat you alive! With the rise of antibiotic resistant super bugs, it pays to be careful. Some parasites just live in our intestines. Others may live in any part of our body like our brains, eyes, heart, lungs and other vital organs with disastrous consequences. Some parasites are so small we can’t see them without the aid of a microscope. Others may grow to several feet long and live for 20-30 years.
Parasites can be transmitted through the skin, the mouth, nose and eyes. Parasites can live under human fingernails for up to 2 months. Parasites propagate through eggs, spores or cell division (simple fission). Due to lack of natural enemies, the parasitic population can expand rapidly once they establish a presence in an unfortunate host.

What Do Parasites Like To Eat?
Parasites love the same bad foods we humans crave for i.e. sugar and simple carbohydrates. Simple carbhydrates (processed foods loaded with table sugar — soda, candy, pastries, etc.) are digested quickly and easily, and the sugar enters the bloodstream in high concentrations. A high sugar and carbohydrate diet provides a highly conducive environment for parasitic and fungal organisms to thrive, multiply and systematically rob us of our health.
What can I do to ensure that I am parasite free?
De-worm yourself at least twice a year and stay away from worm infested places. We recommend Isagenix’s highly effective Isagenix Cleansing System™ as we have personally used it and it really works wonders not only in de-worming our body but also boosting our immune system which results in better overall health. Also, as Isagenix Cleansing System™ uses natural ingredients, it is safer and gentler on your body system compared to other products which have synthetic chemicals in them.
As a rule, everyone in the household should do a de-worm program (including pets) at the same time. If you do not, it is highly likely that parasitic re-infestation will occur within a very short period of time and thereby negating the beneficial effects of such a cleansing / detox program. Isagenix Cleansing System™ does not harm the beneficial bacteria in your body, only the harmful ones.
It is easy to introduce Parasites into your body and very hard to get rid of them. Take Action Now and Be Parasite Free Today! Who knows what kind of unwanted guests are thriving inside your body.
