Preparing for a parasite cleanse
There is a myth about parasites that you only get them if you travel to third world countries. In my experience this is not true. Most people have parasites and most people would feel the benefit of doing a parasite cleanse. There are many parasite cleanses out there. I recommend taking herbs called Support the Mountain by Dr. Mikio Sankey, that are formulated to kill parasites and their eggs.
It can be beneficial to plan out a cleanse. Here’s what I recommend:
If you have or had pets at any point in your life and are in a position to maintain a clean diet for 3 months, I would do an initial 3 month cleanse that would consist of a clean diet and herbs.
If you are not in a position to do it for 3 months, you can do a shorter cleanse, but I recommend at least a month.
If you’re on a spiritual path doing an initial 3 month parasite cleanse followed by a yearly shorter cleanse could be beneficial.
Before you start the herbs you will want to transition off alcohol, meat and dairy. If you consume these things frequently, then I would have at least one week free of them prior of starting the herbs. If you have excess heat in your system you may want to cut out coffee and possibly cut down heating spices/foods such as garlic, ginger, onions, etc. You want to plan to start during a week that is low key. As in, don’t start a parasite cleanse the week of a stressful work or family event, etc. Plan it for when you think you’ll have time to rest if needed.
A parasite cleanse stimulates the liver and detoxing effects. Because of this, you may get headaches, be irritable, tired, foggy headedness and achy as the body starts purging toxins as well as orients to the vibration of the herbs and diet changes.
During the Cleanse:
To start the cleanse you will maintain a light diet free (or little) of meat, dairy, sugar and alcohol. These substances create a lot of damp and heat in the body. The herbs are very strong and quick energy movers. When there is excess damp heat in the body the effect from the herbs is not pleasant and most people feel worse detox effects.
You start by taking 1 herb capsule 2 times a day between meals and after a few days, if you feel fine, increase to 2 herbs 2 times a day. If you are doing one month, keep this dosage until the bottle is finished, which should be about a month. If you are doing a more thorough cleanse, continue taking the herbs between meals, completing up to 3 bottles (about 3 months worth).
During the cleanse you may find parasites exiting your body. This is usually done through the bowels.
Parasite cleanses aren’t appropriate for everyone. If you’re interested in doing on, let’s chat!
