Is There A Parasite Test I Can Take?

What Kind Of Parasite Tests Are There?
Is there a parasite test I can take so that I would know for sure if that is what is wrong with me?
I've been having chronic stomach and intestinal issues it seems like for months now.
I thought it was stress but I am in a reduced stress state now and still experiencing feelings of fullness, queasiness, feelings of diarrhea & constipation, feeling tired a lot, weak at times, and bloated, indigestion, acidy tummy, to name a few.
It seems like maybe this started back in February when our area was hit with a terrible flu. That's what everyone said it was anyway. I had never been so sick - the vomiting and diarrhea were so severe I almost landed in the ER due to blacking out. Once the initial attack was over it seemed like I've had problems.
I'd like to take something to clean out my system in case I have a parasite (or two or three), but I am nervous about doing so. Is there some kind of test I can have done to confirm this diagnosis before I fill my body full of herbal remedies?

I'm sorry to hear you are feeling so icky! I wish there were a simple yes or no test that you could take to know for sure exactly what is wrong with you.
Unfortunately, that's not the case. There are tests for parasite worms (they take a stool sample), but even those are inaccurate. Sometimes people have to be tested several times before giving a stool that has the presence of worms.
But there are far more parasites than the various worm parasites. With bacteria, viruses, etc., all falling into the category, I suspect we are affected by parasites almost every day of our lives.
Usually, our immune system is strong enough to fight off the majority of them and so we don't really 'notice' much as a result.
Because you had such a nasty flu bug in February, I suspect that your immune system was really compromised and weakened.
Whether you are still trying to get rid of that same 'bug' or whether you picked up something else because your immune system was weak, it's hard to say.
With all of the symptoms you've
described, I would certainly say that a good cleanse would do you a world of good
. Herbal Fiberblend is a gentle but very effective cleanse.
You just mix it with a bit of water or juice (I prefer grape juice) twice a day for a few weeks or better yet, a couple of months.
There are two other things I would recommend for you. The first is Florafood.
Florafood is a combination of a couple of different probiotics (good bacteria) that go into your digestive tract and fight off the bad guys, strengthening your immune system.
It's really important that you give your body what it needs to help heal itself.The second thing I'd suggest is Barley Life.
Barley Life is full of nutrition that helps build healthy new cells. It will also aid in getting rid of that acid tummy you are feeling because it helps make the pH balance in your body alkaline instead of acidic.
Barley Life is juiced from fresh, young, barley grass and then dried to powdered form making it highly concentrated.
No one really likes to 'take' things if they don't have to. Myself, I'd much rather take natural supplements to give my body the tools it needs to heal itself than to take artificial medications that usually only address the symptoms and not the underlying problem.
The good thing to remember is this. All three of the products that I am suggesting are actually 'good for you anyway' whether you were feeling icky or not. They would only improve your digestive health.
So, you certainly wouldn't be harming yourself in any way. Ultimately, I think you'll be surprised at how much better you'll feel if you give them a try.
If you decide to go for it, you can order them at wholesale prices with this order form
I do hope you take some action to feel better soon. There is no reason why you should continue to feel so miserable. I'm sure you are quite sick of being sick!
