When it comes to the root reason of the prolonged unhealthy condition of the body, beyond doubt, you have a certain candidate to blame.
Intestinal parasites stand out among other verminous hazards, which are making their day-by-day routine only to survive at the cost of your precious health.
Above all, you should know that you are not alone in this nasty struggle. In clinic practise, almost every patient, who comes up for the Comprehensive Stool Analysis, surprisingly recognizes that their test samples contain parasites. Despite a widespread belief that parasites could exist only in the less developed countries, there is plenty of practical evidence to the contrary – the parasites are ubiquitous. And even if you want to avoid their harboring, unfortunately, sometimes it appears quite not possible to be granted.
The most unpleasant fact about harboring a parasite is the fact that any attempt to cure your gut; gain weight, exercise to get healthier, and eat carefully chosen food, are doomed to failure because all your efforts are being offset by a hidden enemy who plays against you. Therefore, it is crucial to determine parasites presence by testing your body on this troubling matter.
For this purpose, Chen Ben Asher’s Wellness Clinic provides a wide range of lab tests that break down your in-gut inhabitants into main categories: Bacterial Pathogens, H. pylori, Normal Bacterial Flora, Opportunistic Bacteria, Parasites and Fungi/Yeast. Needless to say that timely identification of the parasite is a crucial aspect to improving your health, which originates from the intestines.
How does a parasite live?
Every parasite lives and feeds off by another host body detriment. They are consuming nutrients from your diet and even bite the smallest pieces from your intestines. The most common forms of parasites in the human intestinal are yeast-like single-celled organisms that cause spontaneous belly cramps, bloating, gas, and itching. Other parasites come up with a broad variety of shapes, sizes, and problems they bring down to the host body.
Here are just a few of them:
• Tapeworms – 5000 different species that can reach sizes of up to 60 feet in length and captivate the gut
• Hookworms – due to their structure, they can stick to the intestinal wall and suck blood to feed off themselves
• Pinworms – the most common for the US population, a roundworm type causing anal itching
• Giardia – enter the body with drinking water and able to survive water chlorination, subsequently causing diarrhea and bloating
• Blood flukes – enter through the human skin, transferring by the bloodstream and can reach almost all inner organs – liver, lungs, and pancreas
What does it mean, to be a carrier of the parasite?
Parasites have many ways to get into your body. They come with infected water and undercooked food. Often times, parasites can thrive inside the host, even without showing a sign of their presence. The immune system is determining how the host body will react on the parasite, whether it will not know about the parasite or will experience such devastating symptoms as fatigue, weight changes, digestive issues, and mental illnesses.
In respect to the close interrelation between the gut and the brain functions by the mean of straight communication line via the vagus nerve, a wide range of previously unexplained disorders can be referred to the parasites menace. As a result, if you are carrying a parasite, your gut health will always be undermined.
Among others, there are several red lights that are clearly pointing to the parasite-harboring condition:
- chronic digestive pain
- bloating and gas
- constipation or diarrhea
- weight challenges
- overwhelming fatigue
- mental distress and apathy
- depression and anxiety
- different body aches (headache, eyes ache, muscle ache)
- spontaneous behavioral changes
- sleep troubles
- skin itching
- teeth grinding in sleep
- lack of satisfaction after a meal
- autoimmune disorders
- irritable bowel syndrome
- reactive arthritis
All these signs should alert you and be a signal that it’s time to see a functional nutrition specialist around your area, who will find appropriate testing followed by treatment and diet to vanish a parasite from you and to put your body health back to its robust condition.
When “to test or not to test” isn’t a question
In such a situation, when few of the above symptoms are taking their part in your daily life, then testing becomes the unquestionable measure. From every angle, the Comprehensive Stool Analysis is the best way to test for in-gut parasites. On the contrary to the conventional stool tests that most of the doctors would hand you, this type is a guarantee of accurate results as a part of the functional approach to the patient diagnosis.
The most prominent feature of the Comprehensive Stool Analysis is the ability to identify not only alive parasite species but also to find dead parts and remnants of their living. In addition to the Stool Analysis, Chen Ben Asher Wellness Clinic is utilizing a number of tests to determine in-gut bacterial balance, which is a guiding light to underline any abnormality within the body. These tests include DNA Analysis, Food Sensitivity Delayed Test, and Organic Acid Test.
After identifying the initial reason for your chronic condition, it will require a long recovery process to put everything on its bases, including nutritional support reinforced with supplements and promotion of functional protocol in full action.
The essential truth is that you cannot improve your health as long as your body is under the oppressive influence of parasites. Many people do not realize that they are carrying real aliens in their body. In most cases, a parasite infection goes completely undetected, and as a consequence, the parasite remains the absolute master of its harbor. What it brings to you is the vulnerability to a myriad of symptoms and further full body disaster.
To eliminate the unwanted parasite, first, it must be detected, stopped, and then expelled forever. After all, good health originates from your gut, so why do you need a parasite withdrawing it? Of course, there is no need, just put this clue as for your guidance. Awareness defines your wellness, watch your gut and stay healthy.
