Parasites. Creepy crawlies, tentacles, crustaceans, worms, lice, Lyme, bugs, bacteria … they’ve got a reputation for being opportunistic and long-lasting.
In our practice, we leverage Nutrition Response Testing is the technology we leverage to analyze your body for what is causing you stress. Based upon those findings, we create a designed clinical nutrition program to handle immune challenges, chemical toxicity, food allergies, and yes, even parasites. (Scroll to the very bottom of this post to see for yourself.)
My family and I began testing for parasites after bringing home a rescue dog. However, dealing with our youngest child took the biggest toll as neither he or I slept through the night for 3 3/4 years. You can read his story here.
As a graduate of Advanced Nutrition Response Testing, I can handle most complex cases that come through our doors. With parasites, though, I needed to tap into more.
Learning About Parasites
Since then I have taken training from the “Parasite Guys,” Dr. Todd Watts and Dr. Jay Davidson, founders of Cellcore Biosciences. They are diving in where no one else will go — that is right into your stool.
So many of us think the only way we’d get a parasite is while traveling outside of the country. Do you eat meat, dairy, or produce? Walk barefoot outside? Swim in lakes, rivers, or oceans? Own a pet? You’ve most likely got parasites. It’s hard to know the exact percentage, but 60% – 80% and possibly more of have a parasite. Dr. Todd Watts puts it best: Do you have a pulse? You’ve got a parasite.
Direct damage by parasites can include:
- Blockage of internal organs, such as intestines, bile ducts, lymphatic systems, and blood flow through liver
- Large fluid-filled cysts in liver, lungs, brain, or body cavities
- Neurological symptoms, such as seizures and vision issues
Symptoms one may experience from a parasite infection:
- Abdominal pain, diarrhea, or constipation
- Food allergies
- Migraines, headaches
- Anxiety, depression
- Heart palpitations
- Leaky gut
CDC researchers are now linking cancer cells from parasites to human tumors. What they have discovered is that cancer cells originating from a common tapeworm may take root in those with weak immune systems, causing cancer-like tumors. This woman’s grapefruit sized liver cancer tumor was actually a parasite.
Research and news stories like these were shared during our training, earning countless nods of approval from those of us navigating the complex world of these critters with clients on a daily basis.
Though parasites are complex, Cellcore has created a fantastic way for folks at home to get started if they suspect parasites as a core cause of their ails. It’s called the Full Moon Challenge and it uses their supplement protocol called a Para Kit.
Full Moon Challenge
Why is the lunar cycle correlated with parasite activity?
“With a drop in melatonin down-regulating the immune system and a spike in serotonin enabling parasite mobility during a full moon, it’s the perfect time to provide your body with extra support to maximize detox results and evict unwanted guests!” — Cellcore
During the full moon, melatonin levels drop, and when these levels go down, the parasite activity goes up. Parasites are known for their overnight activity, and this gets highly elevated during the full moon. These critters eat the neurotransmitters in our guts, creating a whole slew of emotional symptoms that are just as difficult to navigate as the physical. Serotonin, which is our feel-good neurotransmitter, also has the same effect on parasites. When the levels of serotonin are low, these bugs become paralyzed, but when it’s up, the bugs come out to play.
An April 2019 article by Dr. Watts and Dr. Davidson entitled How to Conquer the Unspoken Emotional Symptoms of a Parasite Cleanse speaks to the hamster wheel many clients describe being on as these bugs gain traction in our bodies.
Our Full Moon Survival Guide offers extensive guidance on how to support your emotional health during this challenging time of the month.
Now that we know why we need to send these bugs an eviction notice, we have to look at how.
What’s Involved in a Full Moon Challenge?
The four supplements used in the Full Moon Challenge protocol are: Para 1, Para 2, Para 3, and Biotoxin Binder. Let’s look at each one individually.
This is the Cellcore supplement most commonly known to give you results you can “see.” There is nothing more gratifying than that. Once in your digestive tract this product turns into a gelatinous slime which, on its way out, grabs biofilms, toxins, heavy metals, and more.
An immune and digestive supporting blend of herbs (triphala, neem, clove, vidanga, and holarrhena) merge with bioactive carbons to handle the toughest of pathogens. This one is commonly used when sluggish bowels or constipation is an issue.
I call this product “stealth mode,” as it catches pathogens that may have been missed by other products. Unlike Para 1 and Para 2, this one is a liquid, which will provide rapid systemic absorption. Some take this orally while others use in a sinus rinse, neti pot, or nasal spray.
To bind: cohere or cause to cohere in a single mass. This product offers excellent support against toxins such as ammonia, candida, fungi, mold, and sulfur by binding the toxins to be eliminated from the body.
The Full Moon Challenge has three options, a 3, 5, or 7 day commitment to moving the bugs out. If you’re an in-office client, we can dose you with Nutrition Response Testing for your exact Full Moon Challenge dose. I’ll place you in the appropriate beginner, intermediate, or advanced option based upon your dosing. We would also see if any additional drainage is needed to support your elimination pathways.
Many parasites are microscopic, so you won’t see them pass, and unless you go digging around in your toilet, you might not see the larger ones either. Most parasites, biofilms, parasite eggs, etc. are going to float, so that can help you identify them better.
How can you tell if what you passed is a parasite, or if it’s mucous, biofilm, or the remnants of mimosa pudica? A parasite will be firm and all the other stuff will be jelly-like.
People are often squeamish about what they may see in the toilet. But once you start your parasite cleansing journey, perhaps you will find a satisfaction in knowing and seeing that these critters that are compromising your health are OUT rather than IN. If you want to see real examples of what people in our practice purged, flip through the images below. WARNING: GRAPHIC CONTENT
