A parasite is an organism that lives off of another organism, such as an animal or a human.
Parasites travel throughout our bodies, live off the food we eat, and leave their waste behind. When they live inside us, they can feed off our metabolic processes and drain our inner resources, leaving us fatigued and debilitated. Parasites infect more than 2 billion people worldwide. Persistent skin problems, digestive difficulties, constipation and a wide range of other complaints are linked to parasites.
You may have parasites and not know it. According to Ann Louise gittleman, PhD, CNS, author of Guess What Came to Dinner (Avery, 1993), “These masked marauders mimic other diseases, so they are often misdiagnosed. Without proper detection and treatment, parasites can linger in the body wreaking havoc for up to 30 years.”
