Human Parasites live in the instestinal tract and body

Human parasites can affect your sense of wellness through contamination and removing nutrients from the food you eat.

Parasites do not just infest cats and dogs!
Shocking as it may seem but parasites can live inside of you and be quite happy with the constant stream of food and water that you give to them.

Don't believe what you are reading - find out for yourself?
You might be a bit sceptical right now and feel that parasites only infest people in 3rd world countries and maybe just a few westerners that are unfortunate enough to live in squaller and poverty - yet after some searching in books and on the internet you will come to realize that parasites can infest just about anyone and could have entered your system in many different ways.

What can Parasites do to me?
Tiredness, lack of energy, minor ailments to full blown infections - look here for more definative information:

How do I find out if I have Parasites?

What Is a Human Parasite?
Human Parasites are small organisms that live of the host - this can be an animal, plant, fish and our body. They feed of nutrients, cells, blood and even the organs. The grow by either cell division or by eggs - but in whatever way they multiply they soon take over and become a dominant force.

Do they stay in the same area?
Parasites can travel around but the intestinal area can carry the most nutrients for certain types or strains of Parasite and so Intestinal Cleansing is best done on a annual basis so there is no possibility of re-infestation.

Who has parasites?
It's estimated that as many as 85% of the world's population is affected. It's believed by some scientists that parasitic infection is more responsible for diseases like cancer, diabetes, liver dysfunction, even HIV infection, and others, than traditionally accepted.

How do you get parasites?
Most parasitic infections come from our food and water sources but can also be transmitted by human or animal contact. Simply petting and grooming our pets can increase the chances of infection, the parasites' eggs passing from their fur to our hands, nose and mouth. Quite a number of parasites common to cats and dogs can also survive quite happily inside a human body. Some parasites (e.g. pinworms) can even be transmitted through the air and are in the dust we breath. It's likely, therefore, that those who live in the same household will all have the same parasitic infections, whether they currently show symptoms or not.



Some common parasites
There are a number of major common parasites which can live in the human host and which we should be concerned about. These include:


Flukes (flatworms)





Protozoan are organisms that live in the blood, tissues and intestines. Although exceptionally small, these parasites may remain active in the human body for an entire lifetime, causing multiple complications.

Flukes (Trematodes), or flatworms, are likely the most common form of parasite found in humans worldwide. These commonly infect everyone's intestines and other tissues including the heart, lungs, liver and kidneys. All Flukes are terribly difficult to get rid of once infected, accumulating over a period of 10 to 20 years.

The largest intestinal Fluke: Fasciolopsis buski
Fleshy, red and beef-colored, Flukes attach themselves within the mucous membranes of the small intestine. Living up to one year per adult organism, they proliferate easily and spread to other organs. Transmission is through unwashed vegetables, as well as fish and pork.

Although they normally develop outside the body, new theories suggest that when "propyl alcohols" are used or consumed (either in foods or cosmetics), they provide the fluke with an environment which enables it to complete its entire life cycle within man. This allow the fluke to migrate throughout the body, thus infesting every tissue and organ with which it comes into contact.

Roundworm infection in people can cause "flu like" syndromes, with fever, liver enlargement, changes in the white blood cell count and differential and in some cases eye damage. I do not know for certain how the diagnosis of roundworm infection in a human is made. Your physician will probably know, though. It is unlikely that you have been exposed to infective eggs but if you or a family member experience an illness it would be worthwhile to inform your physician of this possibility.

If tapeworm eggs should be ingested by a human instead of a pig (not all that uncommon in regions with poor sanitation), cysticerci can still develop. These may form large cysts - often in the brain - which can be life-threatening (far more so than a 20-foot tapeworm in your intestine).

Tapeworms (Cestodes) are generally the largest of the parasites. These segmented worms, containing 50,000 eggs within each of its 3,000-4,000 segments, can release up to one million eggs per day! Some tapeworms may live as long as 25 years and can quickly reach upwards to 10 meters/33 feet in length within the gastrointestinal tract.

However, their larvae can be found in almost any organ, being capable of infecting other tissues in varying stages of its development. Parasites have survival skills which are beyond the capabilities of our Immune System, especially when the immune system is overloaded or weakened, and that's why they can generally live for years within their host.

Some tapeworms which prefer dogs and cats as their hosts can nevertheless be transmitted to humans via petting, grooming and general contact. Children are especially prone to parasites from pets by coming into contain with faeces in gardens, fields and playgrounds. These parasites can then live in a human host. Many tapeworms can live for many years and there have been recorded cases of tapeworms well over 20 years old living inside people.

It is important to realise that it will take some time and effort on your part to handle, but we have put together a program which is very easy to do and requires very little time, literally a few minutes a day.

There are four species of hookworms that infect dogs and cats in the United States. They are Ancylostoma braziliense, Ancylostoma caninum, Ancylostoma tubaeforme and Uncinaria stenocephala. In dogs, A. caninum is the most common hookworm and causes the worst disease. In cats, A. tubaeforme is more common but is less likely to cause severe disease than A. caninum.
Dogs in the Northern states and in Canada are more likely to be infected with U. stenocephala as it prefers cold climates and A. caninum prefers warm climates.

One of the problems with hookworms is that they can accidentally infect humans. This creates a problem called cutaneous larva migrans, which loosely translates to worms migrating through the skin. Humans pick up the hookworm larvae from areas contaminated by dog feces and they penetrate the human's skin just like they would the dog's. Since they don't belong in the human they don't develop into adults but just migrate around in the skin, causing sores and inflammation, until they die. This is a good reason to keep dogs and cats from defecating in playground areas, beaches and other places where people's skin is likely to come in contact with the ground.
