Intestinal Parasites Symptoms
The Early Warning Signals

intestinal parasites symptoms

Common Intestinal Parasites Symptoms can be recognized as early warning signs that you've got unwanted visitors. Pay attention to your body when it is sounding out the alarm.

The funny thing about parasites is that they are sneaky. I don't suppose they have a brain that literally plots against us, but they are very clever at mimicking other ailments and are able to go undetected by doctors for many years.

That is one of the reasons that I adopted the practice of cleansing my system on a regular basis to insure that no little microscopic creepy crawlies are able to take up permanent residence in my digestive system.

By keeping my colon healthy, I am able to enjoy a stronger immune system that is more prepared to fight off any visiting bacteria that it encounters.

Common Intestinal Parasites Symptoms

An intestinal parasite may live in your body without you really knowing about it for several years.

You may not experience any symptoms, or even dismiss them as "just getting older" or "having a hard day."

Some of the most common symptoms of parasitic infection are ...

  • watery diarrhea
  • intestinal cramping
  • fever
  • fatigue
  • gas
  • bloating
  • bad breath
  • constipation


Of course, just because you experience some of these symptoms does not guarantee that you do have an intestinal parasite. You may just have a dreadful diet, and now you are paying for it.

I've found, though, that if you experience these symptoms chronically, you need a good colon cleaning whether it is harboring parasites or not!

We really aren't meant to live in discomfort like that. And honestly, if you let these things go, they don't just go away. You usually end up with far greater digestive problems and even some painful and serious conditions.

As a result of chronic parasitic infections, people have suffered with...

  • irritable bowel syndrome
  • ulcerative colitis
  • allergy problems
  • inflammation
  • joint pain
  • chronic fatigue
  • immune disorders, possibly even AIDS


After dealing with the parasites and getting them out of their system, their symptoms were gone, too. Remember the little "mimics?" Your situation may not be as serious as you fear.

I freely admit that I am not a doctor. However, I'm the type who would rather take the simple and natural steps first to try to fix a problem. When all else fails, then I consider drastic measures! :-)

Tired? Achy? Constipated? Miserable?

Why? Take several weeks and apply a few good principles of colon cleansing and healthy eating to your life. You may surprise yourself by the results. And the wonderful thing about a natural cleanse is that it is relatively inexpensive and you won't have to worry about damaging chemical side effects.
