Unwanted Para-Organisms

"Only about 25% of those with unwanted para-organisms will actually develop observable signs. Most unwanted para-organism infestations go unnoticed."

"By getting rid of unwanted para-organisms, you will decrease your toxic load, improve the functioning of body defenses, insure better absorption of food, rid yourself of vague, annoying, and discomforting feelings, and lift energy levels."

Blessed Herbs Co-Founder and Formulator of our cleansing products, Martha Volchok, AHG

More Common than Many Realize

Up to 50% of the population may carry at least one form of unwanted para-organism and possibly more. They often produce vague signs of digestive distress, or unexplained fatigue. Unwanted para-organisms are good at what they do. They usually survive without detection. Living within our digestive tracts, they can rob us of our nutrition and burden our body with their toxic secretions. Over 100 types can inhabit the human body, some with a lifespan of over 30 years. Unwanted para-organisms can be picked up almost anywhere: your pets, gardening, international travel, food, water, soil, and even air, to name just a few.

Unwanted Para-Organisms: Common Questions Martha Hears

Unwanted Para-Organisms May Not Only Rob Us of Our Nutrition, They May Poison Us With Their Toxic Waste

Ascarids and Proglottids
What are unwanted para-organisms?

Unwanted para-organisms are organisms that live on or in another living creature. They can be so small as to not be seen by the naked eye and are called microscopic, or they can be large enough to be seen, sometimes up to two feet long, and are called macroscopic. Some common microscopic unwanted para-organisms are amoeba and giardia found in water supplies, and some common macroscopic unwanted para-organisms are pinworms, roundworms, tapeworms and flukes found in meat and fish. There are over 100 common varieties of unwanted para-organisms that can live in the human being and we can be host to more than one kind at a time.

Where does one find unwanted para-organisms in one’s body?

One third of the unwanted para-organisms live in the digestive tract and the other two thirds live somewhere else in the body; they might be in one’s blood, muscles, heart, lungs, liver, or brain. Those that live in the intestines especially enjoy sugar or simple starches. They eat digested food, often robbing important nutrition. Other unwanted para-organisms are able to get their food directly from the body’s cells by attaching directly to cells and feeding off of them.

How does one know if one has unwanted para-organisms?

Only about 25% of those with unwanted para-organisms will actually develop an active infection with observable symptoms. Most unwanted para-organism infestations go unnoticed, which is just what an unwanted para-organism hopes will occur – one will not notice that it is there, so that it can thrive. Often called the “great masquerader”, unwanted para-organisms can mimic many other conditions thus making it very easy to misdiagnose. If one has a health problem that just won’t go away, assume unwanted para-organisms are there and cleanse and take herbs to get rid of them. Even if one were to have medical tests, only about 20% of the average medical laboratories are able to identify the problem correctly.

What are the symptoms of unwanted para-organism infection?

Unwanted para-organisms do two things to you. They rob you of nutrition and they excrete their own toxic waste products, which are absorbed into the body. The most common symptoms are diarrhea and abdominal pain, but nausea, bloating, excessive gas, alternating bouts of diarrhea and constipation, bad breath, food allergies, headaches, irritability, or unexplained fatigue might also be present. Some of the classic symptoms, if one has worms, are loss of weight even though you have a great appetite and eat a lot, and/or itching around the anus, or grinding your teeth, especially at night.

How does one get unwanted para-organisms?

Unwanted para-organisms are everywhere, in food, water, air and earth. Insects, animals and sea-life carry them. One can be bitten by an insect, or licked by a worm-infested dog. They can be picked up walking barefoot, eating undercooked meats and fish, unwashed raw fruits and vegetables. Food handlers or preparers, who are infected or have handled infected food and have not washed their hands after going to the bathroom or handling that food, can pass them on.

One can share drinks, kiss or have sexual contact and transmit unwanted para-organisms. One can inhale dust laden with parasite eggs, or drink water from a lake, river, stream, or creek, or wash dishes in it while camping. Maybe one allows their pets to sleep with them. Maybe they have traveled outside the country recently or share their home with someone else who has.

Children are even more exposed than adults since they stay closer to the earth and pets, and frequently put their hands to their mouths. It is estimated that 55 million children in the United States have some type of worm infestation. This does not take into account the adults that live with them who are thus exposed.

Our Suggested Protocol for Complete Para Cleansing

If you already know you have unwanted para-organisms, or observe them, or experience uncomfortable symptoms while taking the Para Cleansing Formulas™, then you should assume that you have them. We highly recommend that you complete three rounds of our Para Cleansing Formulas™ with three weeks off between the rounds. By waiting three weeks between each round of formulas, this allows any latent eggs a chance to hatch, as it is very hard to kill unwanted para-organisms while they’re eggs.

If you do not see any unwanted para-organisms in your stools, or experience any uncomfortable symptoms then do not worry. You may not have a problem. Even so, be sure to finish your first Para Cleanse™; it is still helping to restore a natural balance.

Round 1 - The Internal Cleansing Kit™

The Para Cleansing Formulas™ in Step 2 of the Internal Cleansing Kit™ begin the complete cleansing of any unwanted para-organisms. Also, our Friendly Bacteria Replenisher™ (probiotics) further helps to defend against an unwanted para-organism invasion. In general, the Internal Cleansing Kit™ works as a whole to provide a holistic solution to para-organism infestations.*

Round 2 - The Para Cleansing Formulas™

The Para Cleansing Formulas™ should be taken again one week after finishing Round One of this protocol. Please note: this is actually three weeks after the Para Formulas™ of the Internal Cleansing Kit™.

Round 3 - Repeat the Para Cleansing Formulas™

The Para Cleansing Formulas™ should be repeated a third and final time, three weeks after finishing round two of this protocol.

Please note who should not use these formulas:
  • if you are pregnant, trying to get pregnant or nursing

The safe use of the Para Cleansing Formulas

The Para Cleansing Formulas™ is an extremely safe program. It has been used clinically with an extremely wide range of clients. However, there are a few precautions to be aware of for complete safety and peace of mind.

What if you are currently taking other supplements or medications now?

It is more beneficial to do the program without added supplements. However, it is not always wise to discontinue their use. If you are taking prescription drugs, it is better to wait until you have finished the course of your prescription before beginning either of these cleansing kits. If your prescription is needed for an ongoing, daily basis, you may continue as directed.

Check the list below to see which drugs this program may affect

If you are taking dietary supplements or other herbal formulas, discontinue while cleansing unless they are needed for critical life support.

The Para Cleansing Formulas™ may have the following effects
  • May increase effect of blood thinner and diuretic drugs
  • May interfere with skin grafts and organ transplants
    Refer to Cautions & Safety

During This Program How Will I Recognize Unwanted Para-Organisms?

If there are large unwanted para-organisms present, you may see them in your bowel movement. Be sure to observe every time you go to the bathroom and look for white specks, which look like grains of white rice or pumpkin seeds. Sometimes you may see what is obviously the shape of a whole worm. If it moves, you know for sure you are looking at a life form. Microscopic unwanted para-organisms, however, are invisible to the naked eye and you can never actually see them in your bowel movements. Itching or rashes can also be signs. If you have any of the “cleansing reaction” symptoms while taking your unwanted para-organisms formulas, this is a good indicator of either large or small, unwanted para-organisms present in your body.

It is also possible that you will not see anything, or experience any symptoms. This is quite common. You still may be a host to unwanted para-organisms. These are creatures that specialize in living “below your radar” to ensure their survival. That is why it is so important to do an unwanted para-organism cleanse, at least yearly, and take nothing for granted.
