Parasite Tinctures: A Natural Approach for Body Cleansing

As you start taking a parasite cleanse (or any cleanse really), you will start to notice exasperated symptoms of parasites. This is because the parasites are trying to fight in order to stay comfortable in your body. This can be uncomfortable at times, but is a good indicator of if and how many parasites you have. You would do the cleanse for 2 to 3 weeks at a time, take a break for 1 to 2 weeks, and then repeat the cycle. You will want to repeat this cycle until the symptoms of parasites do not show up at all as you begin the cleanse.

I oftentimes get questions about your diet while taking a parasite cleanse. While it is not absolutely necessary to change your diet during the cleanse, It can prove to be extremely beneficial. If you are looking to stick to a certain diet while cleansing, I would suggest doing an alkaline diet, or a Dr. Sebi Fast. Fasting does not necessarily mean NOT eating anything. It can be eating fruits, veggies, certain nuts and seeds, and some grains. Make sure you are drinking lots of water during your parasite cleanse. It can also be beneficial to do a liver cleanse and a heavy metal detox in conjunction with your parasite cleanse. Some people like to do it in steps, (i.e. first step heavy metal detox, second step liver cleanse, third step parasite cleanse). I also find it important to support your gut health while taking a parasite cleanse. You want to make sure you are having consistent bowel movements everyday so that you have a way to expel the parasites. Things you can do to support your gut health include, dandelion root and leaves, Prebiotics (we offer a prebiotic honey and a prebiotic root shaker), psyllium husk, NATURAL probiotics (fermented veggies, kefir, sauerkraut, etc.) I MUCH prefer natural probiotics over any over the counter probiotic capsules or supplements. I just feel like it makes more sense to get everything from natural sources rather than a lab grown probiotic.

We do offer a tincture parasite cleanse as well as capsules. I personally prefer the tincture because it is easier to control the dose and cut back if you need to. However it is a little rough tasting so I have to hide it in a little “medicine shot”. To take the tincture I would start with a smaller dose about 5-10 drops 3x/day for 3 days. Then every 3 days I would add 5-10 drops until you reach 2 dropperful (a dropperful is a full squeeze of the dropper and is equivalent to about 1/4 tsp.) Since the tincture is more concentrated if you go in too heavy and do too much at first it can cause extreme discomfort. I like to compare it to dropping a bomb on the parasites in your stomach, which would cause a forceful reaction from them in an attempt to escape.

The capsules are a little gentler and you take 1 capsules 3x/day.

I think it is best to take the parasite cleanse on an empty stomach and at least 15 minutes before eating anything in order to optimize absorption and effectiveness.

Many of us are living with parasites and really just don’t know it, and they can affect every part of our body, while it is most common for them to be in the gut and digestive tract, they have also been known to affect our brain, heart, reproductive organs, and almost every other area and organ of our body.
