There's an area of health awareness that is virtually ignored by the medical profession.  We also ignore it because it definitely doesn't make for great dinner conversation.  So, that's why I am going to raise it now.  (This information comes from the Healthy News (TM) Newsletter, Volume 7, Number 2.)

It's parasites.  A parasite is a plant or animal which lives inside us, and at our expense it is able to survive.  An example of a parasite outbreak occurred in Colorado when the amoeba Giardia invaded and contaminated the water supply causing serious health problems.

Eating well is not a complete protection, as parasites can enter the body in many ways.  When you walk along a beach, parasites can burrow into your heel within seconds.  Children can get worms from pets and in playgrounds.  The New England Journal of Medicine has identified 30 parasitic illnesses that pets can transfer to humans.

So, you need to identify the symptoms of parasites.  A person may itch uncontrollably, have tumors appearing on their body, have frequent headaches, lack energy, have leaky bowel syndrome or constipation. The symptoms of chronic fatigue syndrome can be a sign of parasites.

When you do get a parasite like a tapeworm in your body, it has the ability to lay over a million eggs in its lifetime.  To get rid of parasites and keep them away, I'd recommend you include psyllium, wheat bran or guar gum to your diet.  There are also a number of herbs that have been used for centuries to get rid of parasites.  They include black walnut, centaury, artemisiu annua, butternut and grapefruit seed extract.

I would recommend you go to your local health food store and see what they have available.  You'll need to use the product for two to three months to make sure you get them all.  The sicker someone is, the longer it may take to cleanse their body of parasites.

So, we did it!  We got through discussing an uncomfortable subject in good shape.
