What are your chances of having an Intestinal Parasite Symptom?
In a well-educated, affluent society like ours, where we have all the modern conveniences, technological know-how and safe hygiene practices, it is hard to imagine that the following statement could be true.
"In terms of numbers there are more parasitic infections acquired in this country than in Africa." Dr. Frank Nova, Chief of the Laboratory for Parasitic Diseases of the National Institute of Health (USA).
Intestinal parasites in humans are micro-organisms that live in the intestines. They are often spread by poor hygiene related to feces, contact with animals, or poorly cooked food containing parasites. Some cause problems, while others can live for long periods in the bowel without causing any symptoms of intestinal parasites or requiring treatment.
You may have no intestinal parasites symptoms, or many symptoms may come and go. Common signs and complaints include:
In more serious infections, diminished sex drive, skin-itching, fever, nausea, vomiting, or bloody stools may occur. Some parasites also cause low red blood count (anemia), and some travel from the lungs to the intestine, or from the intestine to the lungs and other parts of the body.
Many other conditions can result in these symptoms, so a parasite infection could, in fact, be disguised as something else. For this reason, it is possible that you have internal parasites and don’t even know it!
If you should experience any of the above complaints, please consider that what you may have is a parasitic infection. Remember, parasites sap your energy, interfere with the gut’s absorption of nutrients and put added stress on your immune system.
Just to be on the safe side, it would be wise to follow a routine colon cleanseusing an herb and psyllium mixture like Herbal Fiberblend. That way, you can clean out your colon and rid yourself of any intestinal parasite symptom that you may have.
To your good health!
