3 major signs that you may have a parasite
Parasitic infections are more common than perceived by the general public. Most of the times, a parasite can thrive your body and still show absolutely no signs for its unwelcome presence. At other times, you may feel ill constantly, be on medications, and you may have no earthly idea that a dangerous chronic parasitic infection is the villain behind all your medical problems.
Parasites come in different shapes and sizes. Among the most commonly found parasides in human beings is the Blastocystis Hominis. This yeast-like parasite is a single-celled parasitic organism that leads to abdominal cramping, gas, bloating and anal iching.
The strength and durability of your immune system determines how likely you are of hosting a parasitic bug. While it is very much a possibility that Person A could harbor a parasite without getting a single sign of it, Person B could be infected with the exact same parasite and feel horribly ill, without ever knowing that there is a culprit inside his or her’s body that is behind the menace.
The logic behind this is the idea that when the immune system is fatigued, the body becomes more vulnerable to dangers of the initiations of inflammatory cascades. This specifically applies to the gut, which has a direct line of communication to the brain through the vagus nerve.
The 3 Major Signs that you may be carrying a Parasite:
1. Chronic digestive issues
If you harbor a parasite, any attempts that you make for healing your gut would constantly fall in vain. The reason for that is that parasites create intestinal inflammation and damage the intestinal lining of the gut. If you are on a high-Alakaline diet, are ingesting good bateria and cultural foods regularly, and still experiencing severe abdominal pain, gas, bloating and extra fatigue, then you better go for a parasite cleanse.
A damaged gut would take anywhere from 6-8 months to get fully healed. Bear in mind, that even without a parasite it may take as long as half a year to begin seeing improvements in digestion while following the Body Ecology rules. That is because it takes anywhere between 5-6 months to completely cool down inflammation in the gut.
2. Multiple types of Mental Distress
This comprises of anxiety, depression, headaches, body aches, eye aches, visual hallucinations, behavioral weirdness and a strange feeling of something stuck in the head.
The most common way to treat this symptoms is with anti-depressant drugs. Some patients may go as far as schizophrenia for diagnosis. The truth is, these symptoms are usually paired with digestive issues.
The gut is full of neurons and neurotransmitters, particularly serotonin. Serotonin makes up what is referred to as the enteric nervous system. The gut and the brain have a direct link, called the gut-brain axis.
- This link constitutes to the idea that distress in the gastrointestinal tract can replicate in the nervous system.
- Inflammation in the gut can lead to inflammation in the brain and vice versa.
- Inflammation of the brain will cause mental distress, the most common types being depression, anxiety and cognitive disorders.
3. Autoimmune Disorders
Basically, autoimmune conditions have a relationship with each other. The autoimmune flare-ups that have been archived to be particularly identified with parasitic contamination are gut and joint related, for example, irritable bowel syndrome disorder (IBS) and reactive arthritis.
Parasites contaminating the gut can light a inflammatory cascade inside the body.
