Can Stomach Parasites Cause Bloating?
Human parasites are often invisible to the eye—many are microscopic bacteria, hidden intestinal worms, or various parasites. Does your belly bloat no matter what you eat? Do you exhibit symptoms like irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), such as gas, diarrhea, or constipation? Is fatigue, headaches, or skin rashes a frequent irritation? If so, consider that a bug, bacteria, or parasite may be the cause.
How Can You Diagnose Human Parasites?
One does not have to travel to a foreign country to bring home a human parasite—or a million of them. Nasty bugs can be found in the gym, swimming pools, restaurants, and schools. How do you know if you harbor an unwanted gut parasite?
The gold standard test for bugs, bacteria, and parasites is the GI Map from Diagnostic Solutions. Your doctor or naturopath can order a GI Map for you. This stool sample test scans for a variety of bugs and bacteria, including H. pylori.
H. pylori is a stomach bacteria and the number one cause of ulcers and gastritis. If you test positive for H. Pylori, receive treatment immediately as this insidious bug can also lead to stomach cancer. H. pylori is treated with antibiotics, an herbal protocol, or a combination of both. Home tests for H. pylori are available on Amazon for under $30.
Human Parasite Cleanse at Home
Since parasite testing can be expensive, you may choose to do what I do—a preventative parasite cleanse. My Bugs Be Gone formula is the perfect blend of nature’s most powerful antibiotic, berberine, and a strong, natural anti-fungal and antibiotic, grapefruit seed extract. Combined, these two ingredients are even more effective. In fact, many of my clients report Bugs Be Gone eradicated their small intestine bacterial overgrowth (SIBO) when pharmaceutical drugs failed.
A special diet or fasting is not required for this formula to achieve results. However, keep in mind, that sugar is bacteria’s favorite food. For optimal results, avoid sugar, as well as wheat, dairy products, as well as processed and fried foods.
What is the Best Way to Protect Your Gut from Human Parasites?
Take a digestive enzyme with HCL such as Enzyme Energy with each meal. One reason people are susceptible to parasites is a lack of HCL. Stress and toxicity obliterate HCL—and this causes a myriad of gut issues.
- Leaky gut
- Bacteria infestation
Think of HCL as a SWAT team in your stomach. With adequate HCL, parasites don’t stand a chance. For the most successful, bloat-free parasite cleanse, accompany your herbal formula with a coffee enema. You will find a step-by-step guide to how to give yourself a coffee enema on Cleansing for Energy Boutique. Once you master coffee enemas, you will wonder how you ever lived without them. Coffee enemas flatten the belly, cleanse the liver, and lift your mood. After all, the neurotransmitter serotonin—also known as the happiness hormone—resides in the gut.
Does Castor Oil Sooth a Troubled Gut?
Castor oil packs are effective for reducing inflammation in the gut. You will find an easy, multi-use Organic Castor Oil protocol on Amazon from Queen of the Thrones. This product saves you from assembling a castor oil pack from scratch.
Furthermore, castor oil packs diminish constipation. Safe even for children, they are calming and restorative to the gut. I have used them successfully for a multitude of issues—from stomach aches to swollen lymph glands. Note, castor oil is for external use only—do not drink it.
