Parasite Natural Remedies

Parasite treatments include a number of natural remedies that can be taken internally or used externally. The key to treating parasites is identifying a treatment option that is effective for eliminating the specific type of parasite present. Diatomaceous earth and a variety of other treatments like papaya leaf are very effective at eliminating a wide range of parasites without harming the rest of the body.

Home Remedies for Parasites

Eliminating parasites as quickly and safely as possible is crucial. A variety of options are available; however, some of the most effective include diatomaceous earth, apple cider vinegar and coconut oil. These treatments bind to parasites and naturally remove them from the body.


Garlic has been used throughout history to eliminate parasites. Garlic's active components, allicin and ajoene, kill pinworms and hookworms. Besides it's anti-parasitic abilities, garlic has been shown to kill many forms of bacteria and fungus, and even potent viruses.

Crush or juice one clove of garlic per day to begin with and work your way up slowly. Make sure to drink plenty of water throughout the day to help you detox.

Food-Grade Diatomaceous Earth

A naturally occurring substance made from the skeletons of fossilized diatoms (hard-shelled algae), Diatomaceous Earth is able to kill parasites and a host of other issues. Food-grade diatomaceous earth is approximately 85% silica, an important trace mineral that helps skin, hair, nails and promotes healthy digestion.

DE is an effective way to eliminate roundworms, whipworms, pinworms, hookworms, and tapeworm because once it has been ground into a fine powder, it cuts through anything with an exoskeleton (parasites) absorbing bodily fluids and causing the parasites to die.

To treat parasites, 1 tablespoon of food grade Diatomaceous Earth should be added to tall glass of water once a day. Make sure to drink plenty of water each day to help flush dead parasites from your body. If possible, DE should be given all members of family and pets for at least 90 days.

Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar is another effective treatment option. Apple cider vinegar is effective at supporting the body’s pH and eliminating any parasites or other harmful infections. The compound is also rich in vitamins and minerals, so it boosts overall health as well.

To treat parasites, 2 teaspoons of organic and raw apple cider vinegar should be stirred into a glass of filtered water. Drink this tonic twice a day.

Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is naturally antifungal. As such, it effectively eliminates parasites and other growths in the system. Like the other treatment options, coconut oil is also effective at supporting good general health. To kill parasites, use 1 teaspoon of organic coconut oil mixed with food. See how your body reacts to the coconut oil.

Side effects from coconut oil can include diarrhea, nausea, and gallbladder attacks. Start low and go slow!

Papaya Leaf

Papaya leaf is a traditional herb used around the world to remove intestinal worms. The leaves of papaya contain a component called carpaine, an anti-parasitic alkaloid which has also been studied for its cardiovascular effects. To eliminate parasites, one 400 mg capsule of papaya leaf is taken 3 times a day.

Papaya leaf is also commonly used around the world to increase platelet levels and help with digestive complaints. Like the fruit, papaya leaves have special enzymes (papain, chymopapain, protease, and amylase enzymes) that break down carbs and proteins to help digestion.

Finally, studies have shown that papaya leaves contain anti-microbial agents that can kill harmful bacteria that can cause peptic ulcers called H. Pylori.

Raw Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds contain an organic compound called cucurbitacin. Studies have shown that cucurbitacin don't actually kill parasites but paralyzes them so they drop off the intestinal walls and are flushed from the body with each bowel movement. Because of this, pumpkin seeds are usually used with a natural laxative like the ayurvedic herb Triphala to help remove from the body via bowel movements.

What is a Parasite?

Parasites are organisms that invade a host organism and feed on the nutrients provided by the host. Parasites range in size from barely visible to easily recognizable by the naked eye. Common symptoms include lowered immune system, constant illness, rectal itching, recurring yeast infection, fatigue, bloating and gas and allergies. If left untreated, parasite overgrowth can lead to other conditions including infertility, cancer, arthritis, osteoporosis and several others.

A number of known parasites have been identified that cause infection. When left untreated, parasites not only feed on the host but also cause a variety of other comorbid issues. Natural treatments, however, can effectively eliminate parasites without harm to the rest of the body.

Signs You May Have A Parasite

Parasite Overgrowth Symptoms Include:

  • Diarrhea or Loose Stools for 2 Weeks
  • Constipation
  • Gas
  • Stomach Pain
  • Itchy Anus
  • Lethargy
  • Low Immunity
  • Frequently Sick
  • Constantly Tired
  • Ringworm
  • Athlete's Foot
  • Bloating
  • Intestinal Cramps
  • Unexplained Weight Loss
  • Skin Issues like Hives, Rosacea, Dermatitis
  • Exhaustion
  • Depression
  • Aching in Joints
  • Muscle Aches
  • Iron Deficiency Anemia
  • Mood Changes
  • Constantly Hungry

Hi Cathy, I plan to start taking your formula and I was wondering how long I should continue to take it. I was watching a Dr. Oz video the other day and was surprised to hear that one out of every three people is infected and may not even know. If you have any thoughts on the time frame, please post. Thank you. Best Regards, Ali.


Cathy--parasites show up when fungal or systemic bacteria or viral infections show up. Fungal (hundreds of types--most common are candida, Lymes, mold) infections---there are hundreds of type. No point in being tested for anything because the fact that it is fungal means it can go anywhere in the body. No doctor can do a scan that would pick up every fungal or every parasite throughout the entire body. I agree with Dr. Oz--birth control, antibiotics, and the food system we eat from make it highly likely that we would have them even if we aren't symptomatic yet. I've researched candida for 25 years, as that's when I figured out what the doctors hadn't even heard of. And no one knew how to treat.

Microbe Formula is the ONLY company I've found who actually cures all the fungals and parasites. (No point in being tested for parasites either. They can and do invade every part of the body and there are 1000's of types.

Following their entire protocol (not pick and choose) yields a lot of great results. One thing I learned from them is that candida and lymes and other things will always come back if there are heavy metals in the body. So if you have anything in your teeth, have that corrected by a biological dentist. And if you are taking any pharmaceuticals, you'll want to work your way off of those, and they are all filled with heavy metals.

In addition to follwing their protocol (I had NO die-off, and I was infested! I went at a slower pace, and it took 16 months to feel that I was 90-95% cleaned out), I would add
1. Coffee Enemas to release all of the toxins that are being released into your body. And maintenance twice a year. If you see anything coming out, continue your maintenance until it's all clean again.

From all the candida and then parasite research I've done, I believe they are the physical root of most all or possibly all of the chronic illnesses that have plagued our society for several decades now. Besides the best know and most feared (cancer), there are so many others. Fibromyalgia, Diabetes, IC, Ulcerative Cholitis or Chrons. If you can name it, I believe that's the likely physical root. All wheelchair diseases, RA, anxiety, depression, HIV, recurrent infections and so on. Jesus created us, and He knows what is broken. Doctors don't always know. They are indeed "practicing." :)

Hope the info is helpful.

Does pineapple cider vinegar work as well as apple cider vinegar? Thanks

Replied by Tg

I would think that any raw, unpasturized, natural vinegar with the mother would be fine and interchangable with apple cider vinegar. The point is to have it raw and unpasturized.

I have been giving my grand-daughhter 1/2 teaspoon Organic ACV with Mother in glass of apple juice 1-2 times a week since she was 4 yrs old to help her go potty, works wonders. Good to know it kills parasites too.

I started using Apple Cider Vinegar just yesterday because I had read on how it would help me get rid on fungal infections and little did I realize that it would attack the parasites, I just found out that truly this kills the parasites, next day bowel movement proved this, I apologize I dont mean to be offensive to anyone but really wanted to share this. I have been applying it on my head for dandruff and took some and the rash on my head is getting better second day, and the above already mentioned by drinking it.. I would like to know if my 8 yr old daughter and 2 yr old can take some diluted in water, I want to start helping my kids at a young age with parasites. Please advise. Mom In MN

I have a question for you folks that are so much more knowledgeable than I am on natural remedies. I have read a lot about parasites on this web site which I am learning to love. Can parasites live in an alkaline body? It is my understanding that the ACV that I take three times a day makes my body more alkaline. I also take minerals and they make your body more alkaline also. Therefore my question is, can parasites live in an alkaline body? Thanks for taking time to answer this question for me. Carolyn

I would assume that since parasites can live quite happily in alkaline soil that the answer to your question is most likely a resounding yes.

Replied by Kathy

Well, there's alkaline, and then there is TOO ALKALINE. Just as a body can be too acidic, it can also be too alkaline...and neither one is healthful. Some people assume that just because some alkalinity is good, higher alkalinity must be even better, but that is just not the way it is. The normal alkalinity of the blood ranges from pH 7.3 to pH 7.5, while the normal alkalinity inside the cells is 7.4. People, that is not very alkaline at all... in fact ,it is only slightly more alkaline than neutral. And please don't go confusing the normally acidic urine that comes from eating protein with the pathological conditions called Metabolic Acidosis and Respiratory Acidosis, which are medical emergencies.

Sure, drinking acidic ACV will "alkalize" your body for the very same reason that drinking large amounts of acidic soda pop, or acidic lemon juice will "alkalize" your body...if you consume alot of acid, your body will pull calcium out of your bones to neutralize the acid and bingo, you become more alkaline. Rather than drinking ACV, a better way to go might be to make sure you get enough minerals in your diet, either by eating lots of veggies or taking supplements, or both.

Kathy, your comments are confusing to me. Best, I've read, you have little control on your blood pH. You just need to get enough calcium so your bod does not have to use your bones to adjust it's pH. As was my case. You right about your cell pH, but if you got cancer then the sky's the limit. Seen this too many times. The pH of your first morning tinkle is not what your pH is. The nightly detox affects this as all the authorities say. Your second tinkle is a better representative sample of what your actual bod pH is.

When we got on this health kick a number of years ago my wife and both had a urine pH of 5.5. Lordy. We now above 7. To get there we cut back on meat and ate more veggies and also bought an Alkaline water ionizer. All this made little impact. We also did not turn up the ionizer pH as we should have. What did the trick is what they advocate on this site.Two tbsp ACV with 1/4 tsp of Baking Soda in 1/3 glass of water. Do this one time a day and if your pH does not rise after a few weeks , the go to two times a day. And to three times a day if necessary.

One last story...... we also do EDTA chelation and there we met a young woman who had cancer and had gone through all the traditional stuff twice and was sent home to die. Just like the Fed program in-waiting. Anyway, she turned to alternative methods. She was doing blood ultra violet light, Hydrogen Peroxide IV, Vitamin C IV, and other things. She was buying alkaline ionized water, wheat grass , etc to get her pH up. It was not happening. We convinced her to buy an Alkaline Water Ionizer and turn it up to get a higher pH water. Also we encourged her to do ACV and Baking Soda. She now was able to get her pH up where cancer can not live. She is now in remission.

She turned her water ionizer up such that the pH was over 10. As a Chemical Engineer, I would not do this unless I had cancer. She had nothing to lose.

Kathy, I think you meant well but not all folks have the same problem and one size does not fit all. I regret that most of my posts are challenging folks. I's 73 and been down lots of dusty roads and ain't afraid of confusion.

This is a great site, but posts still needs montitoring and sometime challenging. Sometimes I think Ted needs challenging and also Joyce. Both are great, but they mortal.

I don't know why you are confused. What I said was that there is not much you can do to raise the pH of your BLOOD. Raising the pH of your URINE is an entirely different matter. Eating less protein and more veggies will raise the pH of your URINE, not counting the mornings tinkle, as you say, but WILL NOT change the pH of your BLOOD. What I meant when I wrote about Metabolic Acidosis was that some people think that just because their urine is acidic from eating alot of protein, that their BLOOD is therefor acidic, which is not the case at all. Acidic urine from eating alot of protein DOES NOT mean that someone has Metabolic Acidosis. Acidic urine, by itself, is not a sign of a pathological condition, although eating too much protein over time could cause a problem from mineral depletion, but by itself, acidic urine is not a sign of pathology. Cancer, on the other hand, is a subject that is in a whole other ball field because by definition, cancer is a pathological condition. Cancer and low blood pH do go together, but that is because cancer cells use anaerobic respiration, and the end-product of anaerobic respiration is lactic acid, which the cells then excrete into the blood. Low BLOOD ph, then would be a RESULT of cancer, NOT its CAUSE. And don't forget how ravenous cancer cells are, and how people waste away when they have cancer. Since people waste away because their muscles and body tissues (proteins!) are literally being consumed by the cancer, it doesn't surprize me that their urine is acidic, except that instead of the person eating alot of protein, the cancer is eating the person! It is THE CANCER'S EXCRETIONS that that turn the PERSON'S urine acidic, since the cancer must use the person's kidneys to excrete its waste products. I personally think that alot of cancer is stem cells gone awry...for what reason, I do not know, although cancer is mostly a disease of old age (yes, I know that even fetuses, infants and children get cancer, but it is PREDOMINANTLY an old person's disease), and old people have a life-time's worth of poor nutrition and toxic assaults to their bodies that they are living with. Raising your URINE'S pH by eating more veggies, etc IS a good thing to do because it means that you are getting the minerals your cells need. If urine pH means anything at all, it is an indication of how well, or how poorly, your body is mineralized (excluding the results of the morning pee, of course).

p.s. I have written over and over again in other posts about the importance of biological individuality, so I do not understand how you got the idea that I think one-size-fits-all.

Forgot to mention this: I simply don't understand the rationale behind the ACV and baking soda thing. When you mix ACV and baking soda, you get carbon dioxide and water, so just how is this changing your pH? I am not asking what you BELIEVE is happening...I want to know what the SCIENCE behind this so-called therapy is, because the ACV and baking soda cure looks bogus to me. The thing that is so easy to forget is the effect that the "placebo effect" has in all of these cures. Please understand, I am NOT knocking the placebo effect!! Nor am I knocking the cures/remedies, even the scientifically bogus ones!! If I were a bench scientist, I'd be studying the placebo effect first and foremost. But many of the cures and rememdies on this site have no scientific basis what-so-ever...not that that is important, though. What is important is that they work! I read recently somewhere that the "placebo effect" is, in fact, how most conventional drugs excert their effect. Maybe that young lady's cancer went into remission because she finally found a cure she could BELIEVE IN, or a person she could BELIEVE IN. Teasing out which effects can be quantified scientifically and which are due to the "placebo effect" is very difficult, because it is probably often a mix of both. But faith is probably the most potent force in the universe. If a cure has no scientific basis, so what...if it works, it works. Nor am I knocking science. Knowing some science can help to keep us from harming ourselves or others in our quest for self-care, and science has found out some really important things about human physiology that are important to include in our knowlege base. So I guess what I am saying is that I simply don't BELIEVE IN the ACV/baking soda cure, LOL. I'm an ACV/baking soda skeptic, so I'd like you to explain the physiology behind the ACV/baking soda cure, otherwise I'll chalk it up to the placebo effect.

Sorry about this blizzard of posts, but I have one last thought to add: about science, the older I get, the more I am coming to think that there is actually no such thing as "science", but that what we really build our world on is belief. Now I realize I am into the realm of metaphysics here, but I am truely beginning to think that all that "science" or the "provable" really consists of, is a large body of beliefs that have been held by the majority of people so strongly and for so long that they have become a habit, or more-or-less permanant pattern that is so consistant that it produces replicatable results. In other words, there is no such thing as "science", there is only belief. However, that still does not make me a member of the Church of ACV and Baking Soda.

Kathy, again i'm confused. What is low blood pH? All my research says that your blood is pH 7.35 to 7.45 or you die. Is that not right? You can control your urine and saliva pH and that is all... with diet and supplements. Also are you saying that you can have cancer with an alkaline body? I also think an acid body does not mean you have cancer, but I also think that if your body is alkaline, then you do not have cancer. Are you aware of the Spanish Doctor who cures cancer with baking soda alone? He has a book out and it is fascinating. You are not speaking to the choir on this site when you minimize ACV and Baking Soda. Most here believe it is the 11th Commandment. Oh, by the way, pure science is controlled by God. It works the same way every time and if not, then you got some measurements wrong or don't have the total picture. Beliefs have nothing to do with it.

DEANNA OF AUGUSTA, GA........... please don't put me in the league with Ted, Joyce and others. They have lots of knowledge while I just got a little. I just know a few things that i have experienced my self. But I do read a lot of books. I can not help you with your parasite probem. We do what Hulda Clarke says in her book. We do her parasite cleanse using a tincture of green walnuts and her other herbs, and also we have bought a zapper made to her design to kill parasites with pulsating low voltage. She says that parasites are the root of all our health problems and includes mold, fungus, yeast as parasites.

Oh, you might be surprised to know the we once lived in Augusta in 1960, immediately following graduation from Ga Tech as a Chemical Engineer. We lived in the section of town where the hoity toidy lived. Only, we lived in a garage apt. out behind the big house. Back then, poor people lived in what they could afford. Now the younguns expect to live in the big house.

I digress,,,,,,,,, we do lots of things for our health, but I also take a little nip in the evenings. The most important things that I thing we do is do Bob Monro's hydrogen peroxide spray. Drink ACV with baking soda to get our urine alkaline. Also, drink our water from a 1/2 gallon jar so we know how much we are drinking. We also do most of the cleansings one or more times a year. We also raise most of our fruit and veggies and freeze and can them. We do butter instead of margarine. We make all our fruit juices and jams from our fruit. Have been doing Canola oil until I have researched Genetically Modified vegetables and I called Con-Agri about their oils. All are all Genetically Altered, which was the term the fella used. This our worst health nightmare. I have contacted a local slaughter house and they are to start saving me their leaf lard. I will render it myself. Store bought lard has been hydrogenated and is no better than the so called good oils.

My share cropper Grand Dad lived to 88 and he sopped his bisquit in lard every morning. He also raised his own hogs and slaughtered them himself. He was not into aerobics 3X week for 20 minutes, He was into aerobics 12 hours a day for 6 days a week. His mules were named Emmer and Twenty. I tried to plow them as a kid, but could not handle it.

Deanna, lots of folks on this site want a quick fix we all do. I don't think there is one. You got to go after your body's total health. You do that with knowledge. This is a great site, but it does no cover any of your body cleansings and other things. You got to get rid of all the garbage you have taken in you body in your entire life.

I am so concerned about these altered vegetables that I am now going back to hair loom vegetables and save my seeds every year. Now that is a hard row to plow if you know anything about gardening. I also think Organic Gardening is a hoax. I say this after 50 years of gardening. I have tried it. You would have to have 22 kids to help you. There is just one of you and one million bugs.

I am now more concerned about my mental situtation than my body health. For that reason , we will get on an intrevenous program using Glutathione. We have spent the last several years getting the heavy metals out of our organs and body fat and clearing our blood vessels of plaque. We've also started on our lymph system. Now we got to work on our brain....... if we are not too late.

Sorry for my rant, but I see so many posts who want a quick fix and there is not any. If you are not taking care of your compete body , then there is another ailment right behind this one.

P S My 69 year old wife is now squirrel hunting on the ridge. She got 3 old tough one's yesterday and we having squirrel and dumplings tonight. Saving the two young fryers. Hell to be poor and have to live off the land. Jus barely getting by.

Hello Mr. Henry. I have read your post to Deanna sometime back and you seem to be a knowledgeable fellow on several issues. I am extremely interested in what you say about living off the land and hunting.

Just today on, they are saying that the pigs/hogs are infected with the new H1N1 flu. I also know that Kevin Trudeau, in his book nature cures, recommends free range meats. I would guess that deer and squirrels would fit this discription, though I believe he was speaking of bison/buffalo... Anyway I am just rambling here,so here are my questions about hunting wildlife and the safety of the meat.

Squirrels my grandmother always said had to be free of WOLVES...(Wolves were some kind parasite or weevil that would bore into the squirrels skin into it's body ) She may have had the name wrong, but anyway she would tell us that she would throw the squirrel away if it had these wolves, but that you could cut out the bad spot and eat the squirrel if you wanted to. Like I said my grandmother may have been wrong about this... But I was wondering, if you know anything about this and the best way to determine or make the meat safe to eat???

She also said you should only hunt them when the wheather was very cold and this is when they wouldn't have the wolves.

My next question is about the safty of deer meat. I have read that deer are full of lymes disease and you should not eat deer meat. I asked my father in law about this as he has been a meat cutter for over 40 years and worked at several deer processing plants in his life time. He told me most of the time the meat looks fine and appears to be healthy, but from time to time they will get a deer, that will have a cancerous look in the meat around the spinal area ( Thats the way he describe it as not normal, darker around the spine almost black spine and meat )He said when they get these deer in they will tell the customer that they would not recommed eating that meat and they through it out.

I know I could save myself alot of money, by hunting wildlife and possibly make myself healthier in the process... I would just like to know about the safety issues of the meat from wildlife and thought you may be able to address this.

For the first time in my life, I actually had someone tell me some Bass fish I had caught out of a shallow pond were not safe to eat. I had fished this pond, that has a broken spillway, for many years and eatin fish from it that tasted fine. On day returning home with a mess of fish, my nephews friend was here and looked at the fish and claimed that they were unsafe to eat, because of what he called a fish skin disease caused from the fish being in a shallow pond with a sandy bottom. I questioned him on this and he said he was told this by a lady who he knows who has a pond and says her fish are usafe to eat because her fish are also in a shallow pond and lots of sand has washed into the pond over the years.

Sorry, I know this is long, but I thought you maybe able help. I have never really done alot of fishing or hunting. But those fish I caught to me looked, just like any other fish I have caught out of lakes. ( Only they had a very dark back and a greenish tent, but this pond being shallow has alot of moss in it and it is spring fed. Other people have fished it and never said anything about the fish, other than they were dark because of the amount of moss in the pond. Deepest spot is prombably 3 foot deep and the moss grows all the way from the bottom and actually floats on top of the water. The spill way is broken and it does lose alot of water, but keeps some water at all times ,because of the springs that feed it. During drought it will get very low and when it rains alot it may get up to 5 to 6 foot deep.
Are these fish, deer and squirrels safe to eat and is there anything special, That I need to do?

Thank You,

Phil, I cannot answer all your questions, some I can. Wolves in squirrels are lava of the Botfly, which is found around cattle. They leave the squirrel or rabbit after a few hard frosts. We don't hunt squirrels until after a few frosts. Some areas of the country do not have wolves. I used to eat the squirrel brains for effect in front of folks who thought they did not have to turn on the fan when they used the toilet. Had to stop that about 15 years ago when Kentucky wildlife folks found that squirrels had the equivalent of "mad cow disease".

Deer are loaded with ticks during the summer and they too disappear with cold weather. We now only shoot our deer in the head to avoid a gut shot and contaminate the meat with e-coli. We would never eat a deer from a processing plant.

You don't know what you are getting and they are not going to take the time to clean it properly. Just tour a processing plant. Ticks do carry the Lyme disease, but I'm not aware if it affects the deer.

We eat no organ meat of any kind, especially liver. That is the detox organ for all animals including humans.

Being Rednecks, we always ate fried fish. Now we only grill them on a Foreman type grill. We leave the skin on the fish. If you watch movies of bears eating salmon. They always eat the skin. It is the most nutritious part of the fish. We only eat crappie. We eat no bottom fish nor fish at the top of the food chain. We live on Watts Bar Lake which is below Oak Ridge. That says it all.

We cannot live entirely off the land, but we do pretty good. It takes years to get fruit trees and berries to produce so you need to get started early in life and go at it with a plan. We make all our fruit juices and jams. We harvest our vegetables year round and freeze and can those in season. We have tried organic gardening. Ain't enough hours in the day to do that and most organic farms use mushroom compost made from arsenic laden chicken litter. I don't trust tree huggers.

All this is fun but lots of hard work.

I hope I am posting this to the correct place - I wanted to say thank you to Robert. Although we do not live off the land - (or anywhere near it) I found this really interesting. My dad grew up in Missouri, and he always used to say "mmmm squirrels - them's GOOD EATIN!" LOL. I think he did it for the same effect you used when you ate their brains. One word - GROSS!

Seriously though - I respect anyone who lives off the land, and know it must be far healthier than what we buy at our local grocery store.

Sodium Bicarbonate (baking soda) helps maintain the alkaline design of human, plant, and animal organisms. These salts are naturally occurring in all fluids of the body. Specifically, they can aid in the reduction of acidity in the lymphatic, circulatory, and gastro-intestinal systems.

Traditionally, apple cider vinegar has been one of the most popular and natural potent detoxifier, though it is very acidic. It is created by fermenting raw apples within wooden barrels. The vinegar derived from the apple cider is very acidic (at pH value of 2.8).

Add enough baking soda to the ACV and it will neutralize it. Chemically it is not changed, the malic acid becomes a malate when baking soda has neutralized, but then the body is going to convert to THAT anyway. What YOUR body wants is that the pH is at an ideal theoretical pH 7.35, which is equivalent to the pH of your blood.

We live and die at the cellular level. All the cells (billions of them) that make up the human body are slightly alkaline, and must maintain alkalinity in order to function and remain healthy and alive. However their cellular activity creates acid and this acid is what gives the cell energy and function. As each alkaline cell performs its task of respiration, it secretes metabolic wastes, and these end products of cellular metabolism are acid in nature. Although these wastes are used for energy and function, they must not be allowed to build up.

The pH level (the acid-alkaline measurement) of our internal fluids affects every cell in our bodies. Extended acid imbalances of any kind are not well tolerated by the body. Indeed, the entire metabolic process depends on a balanced internal alkaline environment. A chronically over-acidic pH corrodes body tissue, slowly eating into the 60,000 miles of veins and arteries like acid eating into marble. If left unchecked, it will interrupt all cellular activities and functions, from the beating of your heart to the neural firing of your brain. In summary, over-acidification interferes with life itself leading to all sickness and disease!

Yeah for you Rayne from Shreveport! ! ! You are absolutely right about the ph of the body. If we want to be healthy we must get our bodies in an alkaline state. At least 7. 5. I find it much easier to do with a water ionizer. I could not control my ph until I got one and now it is so simple. I stay at 7. 5 all the time. The body is 70% water and if we drink all alkaline water it is easy to stay alkaline. All health depends on the ph of the body.

God Bless,

I read the post about belief v. science, and it is indeed thought provoking, while I know that "religious" statements are not cool in the western world today, I will say, or ask... when a person came to the lord for help, did he say, "take this once a day" or adjust this or adjust that"..?? no, it was simple, it is by faith that you are healed...!

Now that said, I love my ACV, my soda, and my supplements, and I dream of my first vitamix and the first batch of sprouts too.... I must however must believe that some of the effectiveness is due to faith also.

Apple Cider Vinegar Saved My Life. One Tablespoon drank of Apple Cider Vinegar every day RIDS Human ORGANS of Parasites that attach to our organs & eat us alive from the inside out. They secrete toxins that make us ill or cause other illnesses to form. After drinking this consistently I NO longer have Severe Acid Reflux, Indigestion that none of the RX worked for me, I've taken them all. Also I NO longer have tightness or pain in my gallbladder, liver, pancreas. Over the years I've had tests run on my gallbladder, liver heart, FOUR colonoscopies, endoscopes and NO abnormalities were seen because Parasites go in&out of the walls & escape Visual detection until it is OverGrown. All People get Parasites, Parasitic Worms, Bacteria from Mosquitos, Water, Airborne, Coffee Beans, Food, Salads, Walking Bare Feet. Parasites do Not like anytype of Vinegar environment and they run & expel thru bowel movement visibly unseen. This is a simple way to stay Healthy, lower healthcare costs. I wish to be posted ANONYMOUSLY.

Herbs with anthelmintic agents either expel or destroy worms in the body. Other similar terms to describe such agents include vermifuge, mermicide and taeniacide. Herbs with these fighting abilities include black walnut hull, black cohosh, blue walnut, gentian, goldenseal, mandrake, prickly ash, pumpkin seed, wormwood and senna.


Parasiticidic herbs are those that destroy parasites in the body. Herbs with parasticidic agents include chaparral, feverfew, figwort, horseradish, mandrake, papaya, parsley, peach, pennyroyal, plantain, pumpkin, rhubarb, sage, thyme, vervain, wild cherry and wood betony.

The term for the class of medicines used specifically against worms, which are parasites, is an anthelmintic.

Parasiticides is the name for the class of medicines used against the many parasites that could infect a human.

Sometimes we are infected with something that we would think of as a parasite, but it doesn't live off us, it merely makes us sick by it's presence in our body.

I've known about the benefits of ACV and its ability to help you alkalize for a while now. Sadly, I have not been consistent with the regimen.

For the last week, I have been talking ACV, baking soda & diluted with water faithfully 1-2 times a day. (warning graphic detail) Today when having a bowel movement, I proceeded to wipe myself when a 5" parasite ended up on the paper. I was both relieved and disgusted. I always had thoughts that I had a parasite infestation after having "twitches" in my body along with insomnia, severe allergies, liver enzyme issues, constipation and other problems since giving birth to my 6yo daughter. They told me it was anxiety, but I knew better. I was diagnosed with PCOS, and at one time told I had Lyme Disease because of extremely low antibodies. So, to see an actually parasite pass though has me confident that supplementing ACV is a winner. I also noticed that I crave water more when taking the protocol, so that is an added benefit. Thankful for this site and Ted's formulas.

I started using the apple cider vinegar and honey for stones. I was shocked when I use it with my lugols I have so much more movements and its full of flukes and rice looking stuff. So I know without a doubt it does something to the parasites. I had no clue I had parasites and was using it for something completely different.

So I am not sure if the lugols and the vinegar and honey is the trick for me or if its one or the other. I take one drop of lugols in about quarter cup water. about an hour later I take a tablespoon each of apple cider vinegar and honey in about half a cup of hot water to melt the honey.

About six to eight hours later I get crampy and go to restroom and I see the results.

Through out the whole quarantine I have been in Peru. I was 4 months in the Amazon rainforest and there I got a parasite called siso. Its a parasite that lays eggs in the skin and in the late afternoon and night they start crawling and jumping on the skin. What a journey it has been. Especially intense in the crotch area, but basically they were existing all over my body. I had it for 2 months in the jungle and then we moved to Cusco (which is mountain region, more cold and dry) where I had it for another 2 months.

I tried a lot of different remedies, but the only thing I found that worked was ASH. Morning and evening, and sometimes during the day all over my body. Its simply too dry for them to survive. I would boil my clothes, wash it with vinegar and 10-15 drops of eucalyptus essential oil plus borax. For the bed I had a spray bottle (1 liter) with water and 10-20 drops of eucalyptus oil and another bottle with a chemical used to kill insects and parasites for animals.

For everyone having this difficult experience, I wish you all the best and assurance that there is a way out. I had some nights crying myself to sleep and feeling like this was just life now, but I am free from them now. Also be aware of the fact of it being psychosomatic. So any way that works for you to calm the mind down really helps. The fear of them still being there, when they might not be is very real. I found that weed helped me a lot, both with sleeping and calming my mind down. And I have a feeling that the way it affects the short term memory helped the muscle memory of the parasites on my body to be less severe.

All the best

We found a rescued dog, skinny, we could touch his ribs when we took him home and bathed him, as he ate and drank anything in the streets there were no doubt that he had worms, so by what I read here in earth clinic long time ago, I had made a walnut tincture out of walnut hulls and absolute alcohol ( 99.9 % ) which had been resting for about 1.5 year. Decided to give it a shot, why not, a natural remedy with no side effects, so if it doesn't help it won't harm if I try it on him for a few days so ; we added 1 teaspoon to his food for 3/4 days ( we're still giving it, we're at day 6 now ),

Consequently :

-before walnut tincture he peed with a normal consistency but after, he started having diarrhea for about 3/4 days in a row
-his stool became so loose and many tape worms started emerging out of his bowels, by day 1 all alive and moving, by day 4 I found some dead /some moving .
-before walnut tincture, he just took pee once a day but after, he had bowel movements for about 3/4 time a day .
- we found blood in his stool

After 4 days, unbelievably, he peed with a normal consistency, no blood, no tape worms! People are shocked when we tell them the story, we're in shock as well .
thanks earth clinic and everyone posting here.

One possibility for accessing black walnut extract....MAKE IT!

IF trees are in YOUR area: gather green hulled nuts from black walnut tree now, in the fall. Fill canning jar with washed/rinsed green hulls (wear gloves to peel!! Stains skin very dark!! ) Cover hulls with clear alcohol absolut or vodka till covered. Tighten lid. Turn and agitate liquid daily for several weeks to extract black walnut / various recommendations for the time found at various pages online or in herbal books. Take according to instructions you can find for various uses. good for all (person/pet) if used safely.

Black Walnut, Artemesia, Cloves

Hello everyone, I just tried the advice of somebody here to take the black walnut, artemisia and cloves. This remedy did help me for about a week. However, I feel that the protozoa has developed a resistance because I'm feeling the symptoms back. Is there anything else that works good against protozoa? The problem with my doctor is that he doesn't believe me. He says that this protozoa is non-pathogenic and yet me and my wife are having the same problem from it. God bless you.

Hi, for about a year now I've been having some weird health problem. I did some research and discovered all my stomach, sleep and fatigue issues were probably cause my a parasite infestation.

So for about a month I've been doing a cleanse using black walnut, wormwood and garlic. Was thinking of adding cloves cause it been maybe a little over a month and some of my issues have gone away but I randomly keep getting like flu sick with stomach pain and diarrhea. When this happens I see a lot of them coming out. I was just curious if this is normal and I still keeps seeing eggs and my girlfriend who has been doing it with me hasn't really noticed anything except eggs and about every two weeks I see a ton of eggs coming out. Been getting really thirsty, drinking about a gallon of water a day.

Am I making good progress and should just keep going or try a new combo? I have been doing the capsule supplement 500 mg each. Just looking for some advice.

C: This is a common problem but few understand the cause, so congrats on your seeming correct self-diagnosis.

Many health-food stores carry a "Wormwood" or "Black Walnut" herbal combination, which will contain 3 or more antiparasite herbs in one capsule. I recently purchased Kroger Herb "Wormwood Combo" and find it effective. Depending on the severity of the condition, will probably require additional herbs like Neem, (and the Garlic u mentioned), Oil of Oregano, Chaparral, Myrrh. Do these 2x daily. One spoon of Milled Flax Seed taken w/ the herbs will help remove and expel the p's. Aloe Vera softgels are also good for restoring colon function.

If these alone aren't sufficient, you will need to also do Zapping in combo w/ the herbs and this should end them, unless you have an adult tapeworm.

Two additional natural substances which cannot go unmentioned because they are on the top of the powerful list is Turpentine and Black Seed Oil.

If you have pets, they will also need deworming.

Here is the E.C. page for additional info

I had giardia and I want to encourage all who have it: it is possible to get rid of it by natural remedies. It may take a long time, several months, but it is possible:

After doing a research on this website and internet I decided not to take Flagyl or Metrinazol or any other pharmaceuticals. At first I tried Hulda Clark anti-parasite treatment. I think it did not work for me completely. Then I took Allicin garlic capsules (6 a day) for 3 months. It definitely helped, but I still got cramps occasionally, my stool was not as it had been before and felt that I still had it inside me.

Then I started to take oregano oil (oregano oil with 80% carvacol, bought it on the internet). Make sure it is pure organic oil. I also bought empty capsules in a pharmacy. I filled the capsule with coconut or flax seed oil by half, then put 2-3 drops of oregano oil - you may start with one drop, as it is very strong), closed the capsule, swallowed and drank one full glass of water. The capsule will melt in your stomach or even in your colon a do the job. Take 3 capsules a day, preferably on an empty stomach. You may need to do this for at least a month and then you will see if it works for you.

I also stopped eating dairy products (milk, cheese, cream, yogurt), cut on starches and hardly any sugar for at least a month, and I ate a lot of raw vegetables, drank a lot of herb tea and water. And also I drank fresh green vegie juices.

The type of black walnut you should be using is made from green walnut hulls. Dr. Hulda Clark in her book, The "Cure For All Cancers", lists black walnut from green walnut hulls, cloves and wormwood. These will get rid of the parasites in the digestive tract, but to get rid of them in other parts of your body, (they travel to other organs) you need to buy a zapper. You can buy them on the internet for about $100. Expensive ones aren't necessary. The instructions are in her book. She even tells you where to buy the right supplements. I buy mine from the Dr. Clark Store in Chula Vista, California, also called Self Health Resource Center. I did her protocol to get rid of eczema which she says is caused from the round worm. They are really huge, 20 or more inches long and about an inch wide. My eczema was gone in 2 weeks, but the worms put up a good fight. My whole body was swollen and red after two weeks and the next day they were gone. I expelled dead parts and clumps of babies as big as my fist. She was a wonderful brilliant scientist. She had a medical clinic in Mexico because our government doesn't let people practice natural cures like they do in other countries. Because her protocol kills all viruses, parasites and bacteria, you should always get good bacteria back into your body, using foods such as pro-biotics and fermented foods like sauerkraut.

Try the cloves also, but not the ones from grocery stores because they are irradiated and won't work. Wormwood and walnut kill parasites but cloves kill eggs. Take all 3 for 2 weeks and repeat if needed. Good luck.
