What if I have parasites?

While the Cleanse is not specifically designed to treat parasites, detoxing can help create a healthy foundation where parasites can be more effectively addressed.

Determining whether or not you have a parasite can be difficult without testing, because parasites affect individuals differently. Symptoms can range from nothing at all to digestive issues and sever fatigue. Below are a few common symptoms associated with parasites:

  • Gas and bloating, especially after meals

  • Loose, foul-smelling stools

  • Diarrhea

  • Mucus or blood in stools

  • Abdominal cramps and gas

  • Loss of appetite

  • Distended abdomen

  • Coughing

  • Fever

  • Vomiting

  • Listlessness and generally feeling unwell

  • Chronic fatigue or lethargy

If you know that you have some parasites, Dr. Junger recommends "Paragone," or the protocols laid out by Dr Hulda Clark. Additionally, Thorne Formula sf722, Thorne PermaClear, HealthForce Internal Parasite Formula, and Scram are also effective.   For testing, he recommends the GI Fx test by metametrix labs.
