Hearing the word parasites sends shivers down our spine and immediately makes us uncomfortable. Little do we know about the prevalence of parasitic infections and the fact that 99% of people have had at least once in their life a parasite infesting their body.
Parasites often attack people with weakened immune system or those who’ve come across an unfamiliar terrain, travelled somewhere new, been hiking or camping. That’s why it’s important to keep our hygiene at a high level and make sure our immune system functions properly.
But even the healthiest person can contract a parasitic infection and not even know about it. How can you tell if there are parasites in your body or if your body is full of toxins that need to be eliminated?
Here are some tell-tale signs that will reveal it:
- Stomach problems – Stomach problems are the first sign of a parasitic infection, and if you often
have problems with your digestion it’s quite possible that your body is infested with parasites. You need to introduce a healthier eating regimen and supply your body with all the nutrients it needs but even if you eat healthy and exercise and you still have digestive problems it’s possible that the parasites in your body rob you of all the good nutrients you ingest. See a doctor and check to see what’s wrong.
- Feeling tired and lethargic all the time – Parasites flood our body with toxic waste material and obstruct every bodily function which can lead to an overall feeling of exhaustion.
- Loss of appetite, weight loss and muscle weakness
- Anemia and iron deficiency
- Feeling unwell overall despite eating healthy and regularly exercising.
- Teeth grinding especially at night, during sleep.
