Still looking for another reason to start having colonics? I have a great one- colon parasites!

"Studies indicate that as much as 85% of the North American population has at least one form of parasite."

"Over time, parasites can be a contributing factor in chronic disease such as arthritis, multiple sclerosis, asthma, edema, appendicitis and cancer". Watson, B. 'Gut Solutions', Renew Life Press and Information Services, 2004.

So, back to my original point. If you are still not convinced about the importance of colon cleansing the following information may change your mind..or at least sway you a little!

Contrary to popular belief.. or hopeful wishing, colon parasites are not exclusive to third world countries or the tropics. No one is immune to contracting a parasitic infection. Although according to the World Health Organization the problem is wide spread,the problem often goes undetected. Most doctors are not trained to diagnose parasites as it's considered a disease of the tropics and therefore don't think to look for parasites.

What is a parasite anyways?

A 'parasite' by definition is any organism which in its natural habitat feeds and lives on or in a different organism.

"Colon parasites are parasites that populate the gastro-intestinal tract in humans and other animals. They can live throughout the body, but most prefer the intestinal wall. Means of exposure include: ingestion of undercooked meat, drinking infected water, and skin absorption".

You can also contract colon parasites through your pets, mosquitos, contact with feces, walking on grass or the beach, or contact with someone who has parasites.

Although there are many factors contributing to a parasitic infection, one of the biggest culprits is having a filthy colon. There needs to be a balance of good and bad bacteria in our intestinal tract to maintain proper colon health. If this balance is not kept it can create a great breeding ground for parasites and Candida. This balance can easily be disrupted by leading an unhealthy lifestyle, eating a poor diet, and having a nutrient deficient body. Other factors that can lead to an imbalance causing parasites include:

- use of antibiotics

- use of prescription medications and steroid based drugs

- eating refined carbohydrates

- taking birth control pills

- drinking chlorinated water

- undergoing radiation or having x-rays

Colon therapists see more parasites coming out of people than you could ever imagine! Many health practitioners believe Colon parasites to be the underlying cause of bowel disorders such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). People with diverticulosis (another bowel disease) have a ton of parasites. This is because their intestinal tract is so unhealthy with lots of dirty pockets of fecal matter along it for the culprits to hide. Unfortunately, parasites do not have to stay in the intestinal tract. Once they have a pathway from the bowel to the circulatory system they can go anywhere including the brain.

This is why a parasite infection can be so dangerous. It can cause many pathological problems in the human body and be the underlying cause of many diseases and immune disorders such as Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, colitis, gastric disorders, and liver damage to name just a few. Further damage occurs also from the waste that the invaders leave behind. The waste poisons the body and can weaken the immune system. This is why it is SO important to cleanse the colon by having regular colonics and maintaining proper digestive health.

How do I eliminate parasites?

If you suspect that you have colon parasites you most likely have Candida too. It's best to treat for both. We suggest keeping a strict anti-Candida diet which consists of eliminating all sugar, fermented foods (pickles, anything with vinegar) fruit and starchy carbohydrates (breads, muffins, pasta, etc.). The focus should be on eating clean and getting as many organic veggies as possible.

No matter what stage you are at with your parasite infection, it is important to do a thorough parasite cleanse. There are many available on the market but they should include some serious parasite destroying ingredients such as Black Walnut extract, Wormwood extract, Clove bud, and Caprylic acid. AIM Para 90 (available in the USA and New Zealand)is a powerful parasite fighter. Along with AIM PrepZymes and Florafood it will pack a one two punch against any parasite infection!

It's also important to take a fiber supplement such as AIM Herbal Fiberblend during your cleanse to help absorb and sweep dead parasitic toxins and to go for regular colonics. AIM Herbal Fiberblend is a great product with added anti-parasitic properties to help kill the parasites while sweeping them out of your system.
