Have you ever had a wonderful relationship with a pet, either a dog or a cat, that extends the animal's status beyond pet to family? Have you ever frantically feared for the worst when your pet suddenly starts to dramatically lose weight despite eating the same amount or even more?
For most pet owners, such a situation is associated with their beloved pet family members having one thing; parasites. Fortunately, parasites can be removed from pets. However, if our pets get parasites, do humans get them too? Unfortunately for us, we can. And not just that we might have them, but 85 percent of us already do.
I know for some readers, this can't be true, right? But we, just like animals, are similar that we are living organisms that require food, water, shelter, air, and the other necessities needed to live. If we can be vulnerable to diseases such as dengue fever and the bubonic plague, we surely can be infected with parasites.
It should be explained that a parasitic relationship is when one organism benefits from the relationship while the other one suffers. Sounds like a relationship with your worst ex, doesn't it? However, a parasitic relationship usually has the life-sucking parasite taking away from its host without the host's knowledge. Parasites are almost all worms, and I literally mean that. The main parasites (worms) people can end up getting according to a report by The Health Wyze Report, are roundworms, heart worms, tape worms, pin worms, and hook/thread worms.
The list of symptoms of possible parasite infection includes repeated diarrhea or constipation, chronic nausea, fatigue, weakness, intestinal cramping, dizziness, foul-smelling gas, indigestion, bloating, food allergies, loss of appetite, itching, difficulty sleeping, difficulty maintaining healthy weight, coughing blood, palpitations, anemia, wheezing, coughing, and facial swelling. A lot of those symptoms are also associated with other diseases so it is always advisable to see your doctor if you are suffering from one or more of these problems.
According to one recent article, 85 percent of Americans have a parasitic infection. That is definitely a pandemic or a plague if more than three out of four people have a parasite. Thankfully, to rid oneself of parasites doesn't require surgery. All it takes is the consumption of certain natural ingredients which include black walnut hulls, wormwood, common cloves, pumpkin seeds (pumpkin oil is fine too), garlic, thyme leaf or seed, marshmallow root, and neem (which should not be taken if pregnant or planning to become pregnant since it works as a natural contraceptive).
Sadly, health news is not reporting much on parasites infecting people. Probably the reason why we don't know much about this is because conventional doctors are not trained in the treatment of parasites. Therefore, they won't think of parasites as a possible source of symptoms. Let's hope that changes in the future very soon so that more people will know about this serious medical issue.
Before you panic, be aware that one of the primary causes of parasites and a whole host of digestive problems plaguing Americans is the simple fact that most of us have terrible diets full of junk food, processed food and chemicals. The first and most important step toward good digestive health is to change your eating habits and learn to follow a healthy diet.
