Internal parasites are something that can easily be living inside our intestines without us knowing it. Here are 3 great natural remedies that can help to remove them

Many people who are suffering from intestinal parasites may not even know it. The symptoms are gastrointestinal complaints, anal itching, eating disorders, nervousness, etc. If you have pets, parasites are more easily transmitted. In this article, we’ll show you healthy and medicinal shakes that you can drink every morning for 15 days to help eliminate intestinal parasites.

Shakes to eliminate intestinal parasites

Drinking one of these shakes as soon as you wake up will have the most beneficial effect on the body. After a good night’s rest, your body will be ready to absorb fresh nutrients.

If you suspect you might have intestinal parasites, you’ll want to drink these shakes every morning for 15 days on an empty stomach. They can even be taken instead of your breakfast.

Having breakfast before 7 am is going to be more beneficial because, according to traditional Chinese medicine, your intestines are at their most active state at this time.

Ingredients to avoid

It’s vital to start with the proper nutrition when trying to eliminate intestinal parasites, as they feed on certain foods. Because of that, we recommend that you try to go without these foods during your treatment.

  • Sugars: Whether it’s white sugar, honey or syrup, these are a parasite’s favorite foods. The only sweetener allowed is natural stevia, which can be used either pure or refined.
  • Milk: Milk is not recommended. Instead, you can use vegetable milks, or as suggested in one of the recipes, kefir.

You should also try to avoid the following foods:

  • Refined flours
  • Fried foods
  • Alcoholic beverages
  • Dairy products (creamers, cream, ice cream, etc.)

Figs and pumpkin seeds

Figs are a delicious fruit that promotes and naturally regulates intestinal transit. It also adds sweetness to the shake, so you won’t need to add much sweetener. Pumpkin seeds are an ancient remedy to eliminate parasites, and they also possess other properties that make them good for your health.

Ingredients:

  • 3 figs, dried or fresh. If using dried figs, you’ll need to soak them for at least 2 hours.
  • 30 raw pumpkin seeds, peeled ahead of time.
  • ½ cup water, natural juice without sugar, or a vegetable based drink.
