Parasite Cleanse Anyone?

Rapid Lymphatic Response.

I’d like to share an experience I had with my amazing lymphatic system.

I was out grocery shopping and I had an awful headache which is very unusual for me. I also noticed a strange sensation on my tongue, almost like I had burned the tip of it and my little toe was itching like hell.  As my brain registered these events and somehow connected some deep survival mechanism, I immediately had a sneezing fit and my foot started to burn. I was hopping about in the shopping centre trying to figure out what was happening.  Had I been bitten, stung?

Thankfully, I happened to be near a pharmacy but by the time I got to the counter my symptoms were accelerating. The pharmacist and a few shoppers had a con-flab about whetherI should go to hospital or not, we decided, collectively it would seem , that I stock up on antihistamine and hydrocortisone cream. After all it was Saturday and A&E would be jammers!! I took the goods and hobbled home. Within an hour, my foot had doubled in size. 

As alarming as it was, I couldn’t help but marvel at how quickly my lymphatic system kicked into action. It’s truly incredible how our bodies have built-in defence mechanisms like this  because it had ballooned my foot to prevent the infection from spreading further.

It took a week to get back to a size where my shoes would fit me and  my energy levels were extremely low. I almost felt like flu, that’s when my GP suggested that it could be an infection caused by a common parasite. I know that parasites live amongst us, and in more ways than one, but don’t these things only happen in faraway places?

My recent journeys were to the UK and Amsterdam. I was in Amsterdam a week earlier during Pride. It was raining, I was wearing sandals, and the streets were filled with trash by the end of the night. Perhaps I picked up something there?  Perhaps I got it from my balcony? Who knows?

Anhoo, I  decided that my body needed a break from all of the poisons I expose it to so I embarked on a two-week detox regime. It involved  a parasite cleanse, staying hydrated, dry skin brushing, practicing yoga, and staying active in general. I also cut out processed foods and dairy, as they tend to slow down the system. By the end of it, I felt like I had turned back the clock by 10 years.

There are several reasons why someone might consider doing a parasite cleanse. I mean we worm our pets routinely don’t we.

Firstly, parasites can cause a range of health issues, from digestive problems to fatigue and weakened immune function. 

Secondly, parasites are common. They can be found in contaminated food and water, as well as in the environment. Even if we practice good hygiene, we can not avoid them which is why a healthy lymphatic system will boost immunity. 

Lastly, a parasite cleanse can serve as a reset for our body. It allows us to eliminate toxins and impurities, giving our system a chance to rejuvenate. It’s like hitting the refresh button on our health.

There are many parasite cleanses on the market from traditional turpentine to more sophisticated tonics. If you do choose to detox this way one make sure you do your research,  you’ll need to prep your body for the process and maybe your mind too.
