A sorely neglected topic: Parasites (NOT healthy gut flora)

Well, we’re getting to the good stuff (read: completely disgusting) now!

There are quite a few things that are neglected in the medical field, nutrition and a REAL discussion between patient and doctor WITH vaccine inserts in hand just to name a couple. Dr. Simon Yu is one of a few experts in this additional area of neglect: parasites.

In an article on Dr. Yu’s website he states, “Few people recognize that parasites not only cause diarrhea, bloody stool or abdominal cramps but also have been associated with a whole list of symptoms, such as anorexia, autoimmune disease, chronic fatigue, constipation, food allergies, gastritis, inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel syndrome, low back pain, Crohn’s disease, arthritis, headaches, rash, rectal itching, weight loss and weight gain, and many more.”

He wrote a book called “The Accidental Cure” that is worth checking out if you suspect you have parasites.

In another article he says “In this modern age, do you think parasite problems are limited to third world countries and don’t exist in the United States, Canada or Europe? Think again! Who does the cooking and cleaning of dishes at restaurants? Food from all over the world comes with no strict regulations for pesticides, herbicides and potential parasite eggs embedded in the food.”

You might STILL be thinking there’s no way you have parasites. I’m not here to say you do or you don’t. I’m not here to scare you into thinking everyone on earth has parasites. I’m here to say that this is something you should consider if: you have made many changes to your diet and lifestyle and STILL have unresolved issues, you have an autoimmune disease, you have chronic G.I. issues, you live with (particularly sleep with) pets or if you have worked directly with animals on a regular basis.

Another expert in this field, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, shares some very interesting information about how parasites drive our cravings (did someone say SUGAAAAR??) and so much more here. It’s a long read but worth it.

And one last thing to think about. This is actually something that came up when I went to see a traditional Chinese medical practitioner. The topic of parasites never came up but this idea of making a problem worse with things that you think are helping (vitamins, supplements) DID come up. And it is quite often the same with parasites. We are often FEEDING the parasites when we take a supplement for something we are deficient in. It’s best to look into WHY we are deficient first and that often comes back to a parasite issue. It’s always best to dig dig and keep on digging for WHY something is happening, rather than just treat the symptom. When we keep digging we eventually find the answers we need.
