Parasites are the unseen enemies within one’s body. These are organisms that live inside of a host from which they live off of. These parasites derive food from their host while also depriving the host of them.
One of the most common locations for parasites in your body is in the colon. The colon houses a series of parasites which are supposed to help break down the items the body is digesting and help them continue on to elimination from your system. The World Health Organization states that over three billion people have a type of parasite infection. Many don’t know it.
The relationship is a good one for both parties most of the time. Parasites like nice warm, wet, dark locations with lots of food. Your Colon is pretty much the perfect location for these parasites as it’s all of the above, filled with mucus and pieces of protein that the parasites can chew on.
Remedies for parasites: Fiber and Water
When there is sufficient water and fiber in a person’s diet, it leads to the proper elimination of waste and certain parasites from the intestines. Fiber restricts parasites from fastening themselves to the intestinal wall and/or forces them to the intestinal tract where they will be removed alongside feces. This limits the parasites efforts to get established and maintain colonies. Fiber can also positively affect the growth of bowel flora which can make the bowels healthier and give intestinal parasites some competition.
