So you saw my story about me doing our parasite cleanse and you want to know if you are a good candidate.
Ive done one major parasite cleanse at the beginning of my health journey knowing practically nothing about how to do one or if I should even do one - so don't be like me.
Im going to go over all the basic questions here that I get and I'll link the next blog here when it's live about how to prep for one, how to do it and what to expect.
What is a parasite and how do we get them?
I always personally thought parasites were something you get in foreign countries but after joining the wellness space, I realized if you are breathing you most likely have a parasite and I was STILL skeptical so I did one and then i literally saw them in my poop :) so here we are.
You can get parasites from public restrooms (people not washing their hands and touching door knobs etc), fruits, veggies and most commonly meat, and you can get parasites from just having a pet. Pet's tend to lick their own ass, then lick themselves, then you pet them and you go about your day just touching your face etc or even more you let them lick your face and mouth.
So cleary getting a parasite it more common than you may think so chances are if you are reading this you have one, but it's also not for everyone.
Do not do a parasite cleanse if:
- you are pregnant or breastfeeding
- you don't poop consistently (you excrete parasites through your poop, so if you don't poop.... well you don't wanna know)
- you struggle with fainting, not eating enough.
- you have already done 1 less than 10 weeks ago
Always consult with your doctor before starting any type of cleanse because this isn't medical advice and I don't know your life.
ALRIGHT, so if you aren't any of the above then let's go into if you even need one, cuz who is tryna go through all this and they may not have to ya feel.
Some common symptoms of parasites are:
- chronic fatigue
- chronic migraines
- skin rashes like eczema
If this sounds like you, then I would highly suggest either joining me for my parasite cleanse or doing one that you prefer that you may have done prior and had success
It is suggested to do 2 cleanses yearly, I personally do one year (around fall no particular reason just a very cleansing time of year for me). It is not suggested to do anymore than 2 as your body needs time to adjust.
Hope this clarified any questions you've been having about being a candidate for a parasite cleanse!
