Parasites can be found everywhere: in the air, water, and on the ground. Depending on their location, they can be external to humans, such as mosquitoes, lice, fleas, leeches, etc., and internal, including various parasitic worms (helminthiases), bacteria (for example, staphylococci, streptococci), protozoa (e.g., chlamydia, giardia, amoebas, trichomoniasis, etc.). Internal parasites also include mycoses, which are fungal diseases, for example, candidiasis.

It should be noted that when infected with parasites, they may not show any symptoms for several years. For example, the protozoan organism – Toxoplasma can cause toxoplasmosis, which is one of the most common parasitic diseases. It is most often contracted by contact with stray pets, especially cats, and by not observing hygiene. Interestingly, it has been observed that a mouse infected with toxoplasma does not avoid cats. This means that there is an effect on the mouse's psyche, and in this way, the parasite can enter another organism. Therefore, it cannot be entirely excluded that sometimes parasites may also influence irrational human behavior.


Roundworms or Nematodes

Ascaris or roundworm (Latin: Ascaris lumbricoides).
The eggs migrate throughout the body. Can reproduce in humans. Final development occurs in the intestines. Can reach up to 20 – 40 cm in length. It resides in the small intestine, feeds on the mucous epithelium, as well as the intestinal contents. Can lay up to half a million eggs. Life span up to a year and a half. To get rid of ascarids, doctors prescribe chemical anthelmintic drugs, such as Decaris, Vermox, which have a very negative impact on the liver, kidneys, and musculoskeletal system.
Pinworms (Latin: Enterobius).
The only parasites that can be transmitted directly from person to person. They reproduce around the anal opening and in the small intestine. They are not found in the blood. Strict hygiene must be observed. In children, symptoms may include teeth grinding, but the main symptom is itching around the anal opening, where the worms are localized.
Whipworm (Latin: Trichocephalus trichiurus).
Very thin, 5 cm in length. Causes trichuriasis. At the site of bites, mucous membrane lesions resembling ulcers can form, with a tendency to bleed and cause blood flow. Lives up to 7 years. Symptoms are non-specific and mild.
Trichinella (Latin: Trichinella).
Very small, 2 - 4 mm in length. To destroy them, meat must be cooked for a very long time. Trichinella parasites in the muscles, damaging them, causing muscle pain, and many other symptoms. Significant carriers include rats, cats, wild boars, etc.
Toxocariasis (Latin: Toxocarosis) or dog roundworm.
Smaller than 15 cm, white in color. The definitive (final) host is humans. These parasites consume a lot of beta-carotene, so they can enter the eyes, where there is a lot of it. Can be anywhere in the body. Can migrate through blood vessels and lymphatic pathways. If diagnosed with neurodermatitis, it is mandatory to check for toxocara invasion. More than 200,000 eggs enter the soil. Lives in the human body for up to a year. Inhibits the production of vitamin D3.
Hookworms (Latin: Ancylostoma duodenale).
Length 10 -18 cm. Infection occurs, for example, when walking barefoot on grass or through unwashed vegetables. They have strong silicon teeth, with which they easily penetrate the skin and blood vessels. Adult individuals, once in the human body, most often reside in the upper part of the small intestine. Live up to five years, drinking a little blood, 0.3 ml per day. Reproduction can cause iron deficiency anemia. Damages the intestinal mucosa.


Tapeworms or Cestodes
These worms can reach four meters in length, but there are those that are ten meters and more. They feed with their entire body. Can move through grass. Eggs can be destroyed by deep freezing at -30°C and below. In salted fish, they survive two weeks. Infected people particularly crave sweets and flour products.
Pork and beef tapeworms (Latin: Taenia solium, Taeniarhynchus saginatus).
Can live in the most diverse places, often even in the brain. Their eggs can withstand very low temperatures for a long time. Eggs can survive at +40°C for almost a year.
Dwarf tapeworm (Latin: Hymenolepis nana).
Lives in the small intestine, length 2 – 3 cm, infection occurs through unwashed hands, shared objects.
Echinococcus (Latin: Echinococcus).
Echinococcus are among the most dangerous parasites. They reach 5 mm in length. Human infection occurs through water, dust, and animals.
Alveococcus (Latin: Alveococcus multilocularis).
Humans are an intermediate host for alveococcus. The definitive hosts are predators. While echinococcus affects various organs, alveococcus only affects the liver. It develops faster and is very difficult to diagnose in the early stages.
Broad or fish tapeworm (Latin: Diphyllobothrium latum).
Infection most often occurs through inadequately cooked freshwater fish.
Schistosomes (Latin: Schistosoma).
Spread through water from contaminated water bodies, can also be transmitted through unwashed fruits and vegetables. Spread through the lymphatic and blood vessels in the body. Can cause varicose veins expansion, especially in women. Linked to bladder cancer.


Flukes, or Trematodes.
Opistorchis (Latin: Opisthorchis). Liver fluke (Latin: Fasciola hepatica).
Enters the body through fish. Length up to 5cm. Feeds on liver cells. Promotes liver and pancreatic cancer. Causes anemia and biliary dyskinesia. Can live up to 40 years.

                                           Parasites and Toxins

In the process of metabolism, the production of toxins is inevitable. This is normal, and the body successfully deals with it. For example, fats produce acetone, proteins produce indole, skatole, and mercaptan, etc. The higher the quality of the product, the fewer there will be, thus less burdening the body. Toxins are not only, for example, preservatives, heavy metals, radionuclides, industrial waste, pesticide residues in food, etc. They can also be, for example, overdosed vitamins; the body takes as much as it needs, and the rest is excreted as toxins. Places where toxins can accumulate include subcutaneous fat tissue, fibrous tissues, muscles, lungs, liver, spleen, lymph nodes, etc.

Toxins are divided into water (80%) and fat (20%) soluble. The body needs to eliminate them as quickly as possible. Since most toxins are excreted through urine, its analysis most accurately reflects the overall situation in the body.

Besides the inevitable toxins, for example, even in the cleanest organic farm meat, there are so-called added or exogenous toxins that enter the product during the production and processing process, such as antibiotics, growth hormones, pesticide residues in animal feed, etc.

If sugar consumption per person has increased several dozen times in the last hundred years, the situation with exogenous toxins is even more dramatic. Today's reality is that these exogenous toxins are found in almost 99% of products available in regular grocery stores.

Manufacturers need flavor enhancers to make the product appealing to us, to deceive our taste receptors. Potatoes are mostly made up of starch (a fast carbohydrate), which is significantly cheaper than meat, so starch is added to sausages. When a person takes a bite, the taste receptors send a signal to the brain about meat. When the product is eaten and starts to be processed, it turns out to be potatoes. The brain's cells say it's potatoes, leaving the brain puzzled. The first taste impression is created, and once the taste receptors have been deceived and calibrated to this taste, it can continue further. After a couple of hours, the fast carbohydrates 'burn off,' and the desire to eat returns. Business flourishes, and producers are not concerned with the benefits of such food for people and what happens afterward.

Regarding the value of meat, any acceleration of growth worsens the concentration. This means that the faster the meat animal grows, the lower the quality of the meat will be. For example, chickens are raised in 36 days - naturally, it would take more than half a year. It should be noted, however, that a significant role in this rapid growth is played by selectively bred strains, although the effect of keeping animals immobile and growth stimulants also plays a part. As a result, the proteins are of lower quality, and more toxins are produced.

The situation with fruits and vegetables is similar. The maximum crop yield is obtained with a minimal amount of nutrients in the soil. To make transportation easier and extend shelf life, fruits are picked unripe and are chemically treated to look better and not spoil.

If we add to these the many other sources of toxins, the toxic load has tripled in the last century. This means that in the usual daily regime, the human body's detoxification system is dangerously on the verge of resource exhaustion.

Unexcreted toxins continue to circulate in the blood, and the first to suffer are the blood vessels and heart. The response can be a decrease in blood pressure. It will no longer be the ideal 120/80 but lower, resulting in arterial hypotension. There can be other names: neurocirculatory dystonia, vegetative dystonia. This is a condition with one fundamental cause – toxins. In general, the more toxins circulate in the blood, the lower the blood pressure. However, the body cannot endure this for long because it lacks oxygen, and as a result, it starts to raise blood pressure until it becomes high.

If toxins (water-salt compounds) cannot be excreted through urine, the body does so through sweat. The worse the kidneys function, the more one has to sweat. If the sweating mechanism works poorly, the body still expels toxins through the skin, for example, eating something suddenly causes skin rashes. Most likely, these are toxic dermatitis, for example, neurodermatitis. The described mechanism is more likely pseudoallergy, not real allergy.

As toxins continue to be excreted through the skin, they inevitably end up in skin derivatives, hair, and nails. By the way, hair screening can accurately determine when and what toxins have entered the human body. Hair loss indicates the presence of toxins, and shampoos will not help; it is a detoxification protective reaction, the same with brittle nails. To eliminate these symptoms, the body needs to be freed from toxins. Nature is arranged so that everything biologically decomposes, including toxins excreted through the skin, which taste good to some. These are fungi, symptomatically dandruff. Dermatologists have introduced various names: trichophytosis, demodicosis, microsporia. For example, a child with allergodermatosis, but doctors prescribe antibiotics, antidepressants, hormonal drugs.

As long as there is a nutrient base (toxins not timely excreted through urine), various ointments and procedures will be ineffective, and itching will continue. The pharmaceutical industry and cosmetics manufacturers earn huge money on the ignorance of people.

Small toxins exit through the skin, but there are so-called large molecular toxins that do not pass through the skin. The body has to hide them somewhere so they do not interfere. Gradually, over several years, salt compounds: phosphates, urates, oxalates, etc., are placed in bones and teeth instead of calcium and phosphorus. Bones ache, become brittle, and lose resilience. We know this as osteoporosis, orthosis, osteochondrosis, etc. Calcium does not reach the bones as long as their place is occupied by toxic salts. Meanwhile, surgeons, dentists, osteopaths, physiotherapists, will all be ensured work.

There are also volatile toxic substances that are excreted with air and manifest, for example, as unpleasant breath after alcohol consumption (aldehydes, ketones). Mouth odor is a sign of toxins and can indicate what toxins they are. Body deodorants, mouthwashes, and tongue cleaning, refreshing toothpaste, and other means temporarily make symptoms unnoticeable, but the problem remains unsolved.

The cause of all mentioned is one – toxins. It can be called toxicosis, intoxication, body pollution, etc. The essence remains the same.

Toxin Elimination
Normally, a person eliminates toxins through the kidneys and intestinal tract. If these systems are overwhelmed, reserve options start to work: elimination through the lungs (cough, bronchial asthma, adenoids, otitis, sinusitis, etc.) and skin (rashes, itching, eczema, psoriasis, parapsoriasis, toxicodermia, etc.). Toxins reach the lungs from the sigmoid section of the intestines, which is located near the intestinal exit. Unpleasant breath and sweat odor indicate serious body pollution. Only sweat should be excreted through the skin, but if there are too many toxins, they are also excreted through the skin.
Heavy Metals
About 40 elements from the periodic table of chemical elements are classified as heavy metals, such as Mo, Zn, Cu, Fe, Mn, Cr, V, Ni, Co, Hg, Sn, Cd, Bi, Pb, etc. Heavy metals can accumulate in plants, animals, but most of all in fungi, especially next to main roads, waste dumps, especially if burning occurs there. Also, along with mineral fertilizers and pesticides, heavy metals enter the soil. In our bodies, they can come from tobacco smoke, water, polluted air, household chemicals, etc. Isotopes of heavy metals can settle in internal organs, tissues, intercellular space, and act as protoplasmic poison, increasing the risk of oncological diseases and not only. For example, mercury inhibits enzyme activity. Some heavy metals form chelate-like complexes with ordinary metabolites, disrupting the overall metabolic process.

Aluminum, lead, arsenic, and mercury can form tight bonds with phosphates and proteins. Copper, cadmium, and iron affect cell membrane permeability.

In nature, self-purification from heavy metals occurs very slowly - over several centuries, but, for example, from lead - even several millennia. In medicine, chelation therapy is used to remove heavy metals, but it should be noted that it is neither cheap nor simple. In folk medicine, puffballs (Latin: Lycoperdon) are considered an effective remedy. Forest berries, containing pectin, which absorbs heavy metal salts and also contain resveratrol, a natural antioxidant, are helpful. Red beets can also be used because they contain flavonoids that make heavy metals inert or less active. Besides, red beets have a record amount of betalain, an effective anti-aging agent. Teas like chamomile, rosehip, sea buckthorn, and calendula help cells protect against heavy metals entering them. Sorrel and spinach help remove radioactive cesium isotopes. Coriander helps remove mercury.

Several important groups of lymph nodes are located in the armpit area. Through them, the body excretes poisons and toxins from the lymphatic system with sweat. Often, due to the unpleasant aroma of sweat, which is most often associated with the consumption of animal-derived proteins, as well as other factors, people use deodorants, thereby blocking sweat excretion through the walls of lymph nodes with chemical substances. Deodorants can neutralize odors, but under no circumstances should they prevent sweating.

The mechanism of action of deodorants is as follows: the aluminum chloride in their composition blocks sweat glands, forming metal-protein plugs that penetrate deep into the pores.

Food Allergy
Thanks to modern "modern" food containing preservatives, formaldehydes, benzene, modified starch, acetic acid, and much more, an inflammatory process can occur in the intestines. This can lead to an allergic reaction, further facilitated by antibiotics, kefir, yeast bread, and a lot of sweets in the diet. By the way, strawberries, often blamed for causing allergies, do not cause them. The cause is most likely the fungi on the berries and, of course, the overall body pollution associated with inadequate diet consumption. Simply, the body takes the opportunity, receiving live and enzyme-rich food, which does not pollute it, to try to cleanse itself from previously accumulated toxins.
In nature, fungi perform the function of reducers, processing organic matter into simple compounds. For example, when trees fall in the forest or animals die and are not eaten by predators, fungi and bacteria process it all. Hundreds of different species of lower fungi microfungi (mold, yeast, etc.) have been counted, whose distribution in nature is limited by higher fungi - basidiomycetes, to which also belong the mushrooms that people collect in the forest.

Those who have dealt with milk fungus, dandruff, and many other fungal diseases have probably noticed that topical medications are not a miracle cure because they do not address the cause. Purulent blisters (pustules), serous blisters (vesicles), nodules (papules), spots (roseolas), and other pathological rashes are most often systemic disease manifestations on the skin. Exceptions might be when such manifestations are associated with scabies, external chemical burns to the skin, or specific chemical allergies.

Systemic antifungal medications negatively affect kidney and liver function, and the effect is most often temporary. Fungi are present in all people, but in a few percent of people, their presence in the body manifests symptomatically. This tendency is increasing. One of the reasons is the use of antifungal drugs and the development of resistance. Moreover, medications work only where they can reach with the help of blood, but not at fungal mycelium or fungal balls (for example, "fungal balls" in tuberculosis caverns). Various types of fungi can parasitize the body simultaneously, and the more types of fungi, the harder it is for the immune system to fight them.

Fungi enter the human body in various ways: through food, water, and air, by contact, neglecting personal hygiene, sexually, etc. Fungi most easily enter the body through mucous membranes and skin damage, especially if immunity is weakened.

Possible clinic of various fungal diseases (nonspecific symptoms):

  Itching skin, spots, scratches, pigmentation changes, flaking, dryness.

  Hair loss and breakage.

  Smell disturbances, as some fungal species damage nerve endings.

  Coating on the tongue.

  Long-term cough with phlegm.

  Fatigue and depression.

  Difficulty losing weight.

  Bloating (gas formation in the intestinal tract).

  Frequent acute upper respiratory infections.

  Yellowish or brownish, brittle, thickened or thin, crumbly nails.


Fungal proliferation in the intestines can be limited by not providing them with food and caring for the good microflora so that it receives enough nutrients with the diet.

Intensified proliferation of fungi can be caused by:

  Ð The use of antibiotics, hormonal drugs, contraceptives.

  Ð Chemotherapy and radiation therapy, electromagnetic fields.

  Ð Dairy products, especially cheeses, sugar, yeast bread, especially white bread.

To limit fungi, it is advisable to consume more greens, green smoothies, conifer cocktails, adding honey and lemon to them, forest berries (cranberries, lingonberries, blueberries, raspberries, bilberries). Coconut oil fits well (capable of overcoming even yeast fungus), propolis (both internally and externally).

Onychomycosis (nail fungus)
Onychomycosis of the nail plate is a common fungal dermatological infection. The infection agent can be found in water and on the ground, so infection can occur, for example, by walking barefoot. The disease usually activates when immunity is suppressed. Signs include changes in nail thickness and color, skin peeling.

Affected areas are initially treated with hydrogen peroxide, later with a propolis solution. This is repeated several times.
