Why Do I Need to Know About Parasites?

Addressing Parasites with Homeopathy and DE

Have you seen your dog regularly scooting his butt across the floor? Does your dog or cat routinely have unexplained diarrhea? Maybe you find your pet having a ravenous appetite and you wonder why they’re not gaining weight with all of the food they’ve been eating? Perhaps, your cat has an unexplained swollen belly and is thin elsewhere? Maybe, your pet is prone to getting fleas or has a yeast problem. These are all some of the signs that your pet has parasites. Especially if any of these characteristics happen more around a full moon.

You should also know that while people characteristics may be slightly different, they are just as affected by parasites as animals are.

Case Scenario:

A client calls telling me that all she wants to do is eat. She said “I don’t understand it, I just finish eating a meal and shortly after I am rummaging through the fridge or cupboards looking for more food. “I know I can’t be hungry I just had a whole plateful of food.” I asked her to think carefully and tell me any other differences or nagging symptoms she’s noticed over the past few months? She went on to tell me, that she has been getting this pinching or gnawing sensation in her abdomen.

Now at this point, I am suspecting parasites. I went on to ask her other parasite questions to confirm or reject my initial assessment. Has your anus been itching, I asked her? “Yes”, she replied. Have you been finding your thinking to be foggy or not able to process your thoughts? “Yes, but I attributed it to feeling tired lately”. I went on to tell her that I think she has parasites and recommended the homeopathic remedy Cina Maritima 30c to be taken daily along with Diatomaceous Earth (DE).

The next day she called me to tell me that she saw worms in her stool in the morning; after taking 1 dose of Cina and Diatomaceous Earth. I was amazed at how quickly she got results with the Cina and told her to continue taking the Cina and DE daily until she has gone 3 days after the next full moon.

One Does Not Have to Have Parasites to Use Cina Maritima

Now, if my client did not have all of the other parasite symptoms, I still would have told her to take Cina 30c daily. I have, over the years, recommended Cina for having the munchies, just like my client stated. The feeling of still wanting to eat more food after a meal, even though you know, you still can’t be hungry. There are several homeopathic remedies for craving foods beyond what you need to be eating. Cina, I have found to one of the main remedies to address this unnecessary eating. One does not have to have parasites to use it.

What is a Parasite?

A parasite is any organism that lives and feeds off of another organism. Usually, they are worms that feed off the material in your body. There are various types of intestinal parasites that come in all shapes and sizes.

  • Tapeworms,
  • Roundworms,
  • Pinworms,
  • Whipworms,
  • Hookworms

Common Signs of Parasites

  • Increased Hunger – Shortly after eating, munchies. Remember parasites eat first and you eat last, what is left over from meal consumed.
  • Hoards Food – In bedroom, secret places to eat later on.
  • Weight Loss or Not Gaining Weight from Increased Appetite,
  • Grinding of Teeth at Night,
  • Itching Around the Anus or Vagina,
  • Biting the Fingernails – Constantly, especially down below the fingertips.
  • Constipation, Diarrhea, Gas, Bloating, and Nausea,
  • Pinching or Gnawing Feeling in Abdomen,
  • Irritability and or Anxiety – Especially when needs to eat.
  • Picking of Nose or Itchy Nose,
  • Foggy Head, Thinking,
  • Traveled Internationally – Had diarrhea on trip.

How Does One Get Parasites?

There are various ways to contract a parasite. Here are a few of the most common causes:

  • Contaminated Food and Water
  • Undercooked Meat
  • Unclean or Contaminated Fruits and Vegetables
  • Bottom of Your Foot – Walking barefoot
  • Handling Animals

Foods that Help Chase Out Intestinal Parasites

Parasites do not like foods high in bromelain. Consume a small amount of one of the following foods first thing in the morning and then have breakfast.

  • Pumpkin Seeds (plain)
  • Papaya (fresh)
  • Pineapple (fresh)

Parasites Activity

Parasites are more active at night and during a full moon. When you find yourself hungry soon after eating a meal or there is a delay in having the next meal (e.g. lunch, overnight), you may feel some abdominal symptoms (pinching or gnawing). You may also feel irritable or anxious before a meal. These symptoms are all coming from the parasites wanting to be fed.

When addressing parasites, you want to eliminate the eggs, babies, tweens, parents and grandparents. To be sure to have cleared everyone out; this process takes 6-8 months.

My Protocol for Addressing Parasites for People

Homeopathic Remedies for Parasites

There are several homeopathic remedies for parasites. Some homeopathic remedies can be used for specific types of parasites. However, I have had great success with the homeopathic remedy Cina Maritima 30c. Cina covers all of the various types of parasites.

Diatomaceous Earth (DE)

I also recommend that my client takes Diatomaceous Earth (DE) along with Cina 30c.

You want to use food grade diatomaceous earth (DE), which is the fossilized of microscopic shell created by one celled plant called Diatoms. Food grade diatomaceous earth is 100% natural and organic source of silica. The fresh water deposits of diatomite are called food grade diatomaceous earth, because it is the purest form of DE and can be consumed by humans and animals. Diatomaceous Earth can be purchased from any health food store (may find in pet section).

I hope in sharing my parasite recommendations for people and pets it will help you or a family member, including your pets, if one does get parasites.
