Intestinal parasites can cause a host of problems in the body, ranging from a mild stomachache to severe diarrhea. Drinking contaminated water and eating undercooked meat are two of the most common causes of intestinal parasites.
Signs that you may have an intestinal parasitic infection may include abdominal cramps, nausea and vomiting, diarrhea with loose stools, distended abdomen, loss of appetite and listlessness.
While there are several over the counter medicines that are commonly used to get rid of these harmful parasites, these often contain strong ingredients that end up causing other issues.
Using herbs is a far gentler and safer way to kill intestinal parasites without the risks of any adverse effects.
These are 3 herbs that are most commonly used to kill parasites along with how to use them.
Boil oregano leaves in water and sip this oregano-infused water through the day.
Oregano essential oil is also very effective for killing intestinal parasites. It can be ingested as capsules or the oil can be added directly to veggie based smoothies or juice. Using oregano oil in a smoothie or juice allows you to rehydrate your system while killing the parasites causing you issues.
The oil is antifungal, antibacterial and helps to reset the microbes in your system to cleanse and purify your system.
Garlic is one of the most effective herbs to use to kill parasites. Sure, it’s hard to feel enthusiastic about eating garlic – the smell and taste can be overpowering. Fortunately, you don’t have to have raw garlic to get the rewards and benefits from its use. Instead you can take it in capsule form.
There are even some organic garlic capsule manufacturers who have developed garlic pills that are odorless. Definitely the need of the day!
If you don’t mind having raw garlic, you can add it to your cooking or mix it with honey and use it in a tea form.
Cloves can also help eliminate parasites and can be delivered in the same methods as garlic. You can also crush cloves and use them in a tea form or an oil form in capsules to take daily.
Cloves in capsule form should be either powdered or mixed with an oil base such as coconut oil. You can fill empty gel caps from organic food and health food stores and take a few capsules throughout the day. If you find that this method works for you, you can increase the dosage as needed.
Clove works as an anti-inflammatory as well as an herb that kills parasite eggs. When used with wormwood and black walnut powder, you can actually stop the life cycle of the egg.
By keeping these three herbs on hand, you can use them as needed and help to get over stomach or intestinal issues easily. If you find the herbs are not working as well as they should be, consider increasing the dosage or adding them to other herbal remedies to boost their properties.
