What products do you need for a parasite cleanse?
First of all, you do NOT want to attempt a parasite cleanse, unless you have done 1-3 months of drainage work first and you have done PLENTY of work on regulating your nervous system & stimulating your vagus nerve (see some of my other posts for more info on this).
If you cannot easily work up a sweat, you’re not having 2-3 easy to pass bowel movements per day, you’re in adrenal fatigue, and/or you are easily triggered by things, then you are probably NOT ready for a parasite cleanse, yet. If you’re pregnant, or breast feeding, this is also NOT the time do be doing parasite cleansing.
Here’s what you need for a parasite cleanse:
1 - Liver and kidney support.
*Castor oil packs are great for both liver and kidney support, while you're doing a parasite cleanse! Here's the link to my favorite castor oil packs (my code is parasitemamma, which saves you 10% at checkout):
*Organic coffee enemas are fabulous for helping to support the liver through a parasite cleanse! Here's the link to my favorite enema kit/enema coffee:
*Other things to support the liver and kidneys through a cleanse are Vitamin C, Magnesium, Selenium, and B vitamins (make sure these are methylated...look for methylcobalamin and methylated folate on the label and avoid folic acid, or cyanocobalamin)
*These herbs are good for liver and kidney support, as well: artichoke, astragalus, cardamom, chicory, cordyceps, curcumin, dandelion, danshen, garlic, ginger, ginkgo biloba, ginseng, goldenrod, green tea, juniper, licorice root, marshmallow root, milk thistle, nettle, parsley, reishi, schisandra/schizandra, and turmeric.
Please talk to the medical professional you're working with, before using these herbs. There may be contraindications, if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or on certain medications.
2 - A binder that does NOT charcoal (see my post about which binders are optimal, how to use them, etc, for more info):
3 - Multiple products to kill parasites! Parasites adapt and become immune to things very quickly, so you want to have at least 3 things on hand that kill parasites, so you can rotate those out, during the full moon cycles. You do NOT want to use the same products over and over!
For first-time cleansers, I like to use homeopathics remedies. These are gentle, yet effective, so they're great for sensitive individuals, first-time cleansers, children, infants, pregnant mothers, and breastfeeding mothers!
Homeopathic remedies that address parasites are:
cina, calcarea, spigelia, caladium, teucrium, indigo, and vermex
Herbs that kill parasites:
black seed oil, black walnut, clove, curcumin, garlic, ginger, goldenseal, grapefruit seed extract, inula viscosa, myrrh, neem, olive leaf, oregano, pau d'arco, thyme, tribulus, turmeric, vidanga, and wormwood!
This is not an exhausted list of every herb/homeopathic in the world that kills parasites and pathogens, but this is a great place to start!
Personally, I love using tinctures, or single ingredient capsules, because you can start at a very low dose and see how your body handles it. If you don't tolerate the product well, you will know EXACTLY which ingredient you're reacting to (versus a product that has multiple herbs in it...it will be harder to pinpoint what you might be reacting to, if there are multiple ingredients).
No matter what anti parasitic product you try, I always advise starting with 1/4 of the dosage that is recommended on the product you purchase. You never want to be too aggressive in the beginning of a cleanse, because it can be very hard on the body. Going too aggressively can also cause the parasites to scatter and burrow deeper into the body and you DEFINITELY want to avoid that!
4 - Enzymes! These are essential for breaking down parasites!
So many people have low stomach acid (HCL), which is your FIRST line of defense against parasites and other pathogens. Having low HCL also makes proper digestion and absorption of nutrients harder for you. Reach out to me for information on how to test for low stomach acid, or talk to the medical professional you're working with.
Many people have organs that are not functioning properly, which means that bile production is low. Low bile production will also make it harder to get rid of parasites and other pathogens (and also makes digestion and absorption of nutrients harder for you). If you've had your gallbladder removed this makes it EVEN HARDER for your body to produce bile...in fact, those with their gallbladder removed should be taking ox bile, digestive enzymes, and/or Tudca FOR LIFE!!!
Digestive enzymes are crucial for helping to break down parasites and pathogens, especially serrapeptase (also called serratiopeptidase). Other digestive enzymes, like pancreatic enzymes, proteases, bromelain, etc, are fabulous for helping to break down parasites and other pathogens, as well!
5 - Biofilm Busters! These are essential for breaking up the biofilm and mucous that parasites and pathogens create! They make this stuff, so they can hide out in it and stay in your body for a longer period of time. See my post of biofilm busters for more info:
