When parasites cause your digestive problems, could mud be your best treatment?

If you suffer from abdominal pain, nausea, gas, fatigue, or any other unpleasant gut issues, it's possible you have a parasite.

Most people in the U.S. think parasites aren't a problem in the West. They think they affect only Third World countries. But parasites are equal opportunity offenders. They can attack just about anywhere, though cold water areas tend to see a lot fewer parasites. However, water isn't the only place you can get parasites. You can get them from food, including undercooked meat and some imported fruit and veggies. And you can get them from any contact with pollutants.

Intestinal parasites are now at epidemic levels in the United States. In fact, some estimate that up to 50% of Americans could be suffering from parasitic organisms in their digestive tract. In the West, most people suffer from roundworms, pinworms and the protozoan G. lamblia. These prevent proper digestion of your food and rob your body of essential nutrients.

So what can you do if you suffer from a parasite? There are a lot of treatments available. Many of them are highly effective. One of my favorites is something called diatomaceous earth. I think Diatomaceous earth is the most effective natural anti-parasitic remedy available today. It's a naturally occurring sedimentary rock. You can buy it powdered form at just about any health food store or online. People have used diatomaceous earth as a natural insecticide and pesticide for centuries. No one knows exactly how it works. But the best explanation we have is that it dehydrates parasites in the intestinal tract. This allows your body to excrete them painlessly.

To use diatomaceous earth, simply take one to two tablespoons of food-grade diatomaceous earth powder mixed with 8 ounces of purified water daily for seven days. This can feel a little sludgy to some. If you struggle with drinking mud, then lower the dose to one or two teaspoons until you get used to it. Build up from there. Make sure you drink more water than usual while taking the diatomaceous earth. This cleansing program can dehydrate your body as well.
