Worming their way OUT of your life
What is it with parasites? So prevalent, so invasive, so annoying, so hard to get rid of!
We get a lot of questions from people asking how to naturally treat parasites and worms in themselves or in their kids. There are a few treatments out there but they can be harsh to the system. 
Some people just know they have worms or parasites. If you’re not sure some of the signs can be:
  • You have constipation, diarrhoea, gas, or other symptoms of IBS
  • Teeth grinding at night
  • Fatigue, exhaustion, depression, or apathy 
  • Skin irritations or rashes, hives, eczema or rosacea

Love Your Gut (LYG) powder has an underground fan base of people who use it for parasites and worm removal. 
From our users we have found many who cite a side benefit of ridding themselves of the dreaded parasites. (We’ve been sent many photos of people’s stools and the dead worms. Don’t worry we won’t be sharing). 

Worms away
There are some things you can do to help keep worms and parasites away and remove the ones you may have.

  • Washing your hands is the best practice
  • Take LYG powder or capsules. 
  • LYG kills off internal parasites by destroying their exoskeletal system (other treatments use chemicals to kill worms but their eggs may remain. LYG powder kills both safely for you) 

Try one month use, one month break then another month use. After that, use it every day.
  • Ensure your food is cooked.
  • Garlic and onion have anti-parasitic properties.
  • Drink fresh, filtered water.
  • Consult your healthcare professional.

Have you ever wondered what worm and parasite infections are and where they come from?  I thought not

But if you’re interested to know more about intestinal worms and parasitic infestations, they are a lot more common than you may think.1 Parasites are animals that live on another plant or animal, and they often impact the health of the place or person they inhabit. All around the world there are thousands of varieties of worms and parasites, including protozoa, parasitic worms, mites and lice that can cause symptoms or remain asymptomatic for years.2

I know, doesn’t sound like much fun does it?
If you’re wondering whether these little critters have taken up residence in your temple, and want to do something about it, there are measures that you can take to really help.

While some worms or parasites are found more commonly in certain parts of the world; parasitic infection is a global health problem (I know – yikes!).1 To give you an example, H. Pylori, the infamous parasitic infection that infects the epithelial lining of the stomach, impacts approximately half of the world’s population.3 That is so much more prevalent than people think.

So, what causes parasites or worms?
Usually, they can take up house after consumption of contaminated water, food or contaminated soil. Also, if you come into contact with contaminated faeces. Poor sanitation and hygiene practices can also lead to an infestation.
So, you might be wondering what the symptoms are of having a parasite?
Parasite infestation can be diagnosed by several measures, including a faecal test, blood test, endoscopy or X-ray. While some infections may be asymptomatic and remain undetected, the below symptoms may indicate an infestation.

  • Abdominal pain
  • Bloating
  • Decreased nutrient absorption
  • Dehydration
  • Diarrhoea
  • Disturbed sleep
  • Fatigue
  • Flatulence
  • High temperatures
  • Irritability
  • Nausea
  • Poor digestion
  • Rashes and itching
  • Stool with blood or mucus
  • Unexplained weight loss
  • Vomiting
  • Weight gain or loss

The best thing to do if you are concerned is to have a test to ascertain if you do or not and then look at safe and effective solutions for the treatment of parasites and the prevention in the long run.

If you are looking for ways to treat them, parasites and bugs are widespread but can be hard to treat. While antibiotics can treat some parasites, they, unfortunately, create an unhealthy gut microbiome. Plus, we’re here for prevention rather than cure!

Diatomaceous earth can be a ninja in the parasite-fighting department. It’s the fossilised remnants of diatoms, which were once microscopic algae. Diatomaceous earth is a safe and effective insecticide; it works by absorbing the outer layer of insects and desiccating (drying) them, killing off any lurking parasites and their eggs.4 Diatomaceous earth will improve the health of the microbiome while removing parasites, metals, toxins and worms.

Several studies confirm the impact of diatomaceous earth on the prevention and treatment of parasitic worms and disease.2 A study done on organic and free-range hens found that hens who were fed diatomaceous earth had a lower level of Capillaria FEC, Eimeria FEC and Heterakis worms than the control group of hens. On top of the parasite-fighting effects, hens that consumed diatomaceous earth laid larger eggs with more yolk.4

The good news is that it’s a very safe and natural solution and it not only prevents and eradicates parasites, but it also provides minerals and trace minerals such as selenium and zinc, that help the host to cope with the burden of parasites.5

What else does Diatomaceous Earth do for you?
Besides eradicating parasites, diatomaceous earth is a food grade source of antioxidants and beneficial for removing toxins, improving the health of our hair, skin and nails, enhancing mineral absorption, reducing bloating and boosting the immune system.

Directions for use: Take one tablespoon of diatomaceous earth daily for seven days if you have a parasitic infection. When using diatomaceous earth, be sure to drink plenty of fluids.
