Do I Have a Parasite? 3 Steps to Flush Them for GOOD

If you have any unexplained health problems, you may have considered (or been told by a doctor) that a parasite could be to blame.

Indeed, after much research I have come to conclude that parasites are probably at the root of most (if not all) of the health problems we deal with.


If you live in America, or any other first world country, you may scoff at this idea.

Many people think, “I don’t have a parasite. I am clean and I live in America.”

Not so fast.

It is well-established that everyone is exposed to parasites. Many people think that traveling out of the country is the only way to get them, but parasites know no borders.

We can’t live in denial. We all have them.

No matter how clean you are, and no matter how good your diet is… we are all exposed to parasites in many facets of our lives.

We can get parasites from:

  • Food (especially anything raw or undercooked, but even well-cooked food can expose us!)
  • Water (water treatment can’t get them all)
  • Walking around barefoot or touching dirt
  • Proximity to or contact with pets or other animals
  • Intimate contact with other people
  • Insect bites
  • Touching everyday surfaces
  • Even in the air we breathe!

Of course we should all take appropriate precautions to avoid exposure as much as we can.

Cooking food well, avoiding foods that are notorious for parasites, washing our hands and drinking high quality filtered water are things we should all be doing.

However we also have to face the fact that EVERYONE has parasites.

The sooner we accept that as fact and do something about it, the better.


And there are many things we can do.

The Reality

If you have any health issues at all, I urge you to consider the fact that the health of our gut and its communication with the brain is the root of everything… (I talk more about that here). 

…and that when the gut micro-biome is imbalanced, it opens the doors to parasites: including pathogens, bacteria, intestinal worms, mold, and other overgrowths that cause many symptoms. 

This can lead to “holes” or permeability in our gut lining (sometimes called “leaky gut“) which can then cause autoimmune issues, chronic illness, unexplained health problems, food allergies and sensitivity, brain fog and even mental illness and intrusive thoughts.

Doctors may or may not have answers. Tests may or may not come back conclusive for a disorder or diagnosis.

Regardless, parasites are almost inevitably the root of your issues.

That may sound scary, but the good news is: there are a lot of easy, effective, inexpensive natural things we can do about it.

I host a group on Facebook where we do monthly parasite cleanses together. If you want to join in or just learn more, please join us or follow along here.

I have put together a simple 3-step protocol to eliminate parasites and heal, for GOOD.

My 3 Step Full Moon Protocol

(Read below for the reasons why I always do parasite cleanses during the full moon)

Step 1: Clear detox pathways (liver, kidneys, gut)

A parasite cleanse is a big detox. When you do this your body will push out waste, toxins, mucus and parasites. You want this process to be as quick and efficient as possible.

If your liver or kidneys are clogged, things may get backed up and this can make the process very unpleasant for you (anything from a headache to nausea to flu-like symptoms)

Opening your detox pathways is so important before any detox, but especially before a parasite cleanse. Please don’t skip this step. You will thank yourself later for taking the time and effort.

The 3-day gut reboot I recommend for step 1 is gentle, effective, affordable and only 3 days! You do NOT want to skip step 1!

Step 2: The Parasite Cleanse

This is the fun part: targeting and eliminating parasites. The full moon is the best time to do this (see below why) so you have an opportunity every month. I do one  about once a quarter.

I have put together an amazon store of all the anti-parasitic ingredients I have used in my parasite cleanses. I have also been doing a series on each ingredient, what it is, what it does and how I use it. This series can be found in my group The Truth About Parasites: How We Heal (click to join the group!) and on my TikTok and YouTube channels.

Step 3: Maintain (IMPORTANT)

You may think, ok great, once they’re gone they’re gone, right? One & done–I’m set for life!

Not quite.

Remember I mentioned we are constantly exposed to parasites? And that they lay eggs?

There are many types of parasites. So the anti-parasitic you use for your parasite this cleanse may not get all of them (or all of the types of them) that you need to address.

This brings us to the most important part: maintenance.

Maintenance may seem like not a big deal, but it’s everything.

We don’t want all the hard work we’ve done eliminating parasites to go to waste… and if we don’t maintain, they will grow back even faster than we can kill them.

So what is maintenance? 

It’s changing the entire ecosystem of your body…

…and that begins in the gut microbiome.

By changing the ecosystem of your body (beginning with the health and balance of your gut) you can make your body inhospitable to parasites. That means they can’t easily live or thrive inside of your body… and that is the goal.

How do I change my body’s ecosystem?

This isn’t just one thing: we have to be pro-active with our health. Diet is foundational, so eating as many whole, organic, unprocessed foods as possible and as few sugars, processed foods, junk foods and CAFO meats as possible is one of the best ways to keep parasites from thriving in your body’s ecosystem and promote good overall health for life.

Moving your body regularly increases blood flow and assists with detoxification.  I’m not talking about hard, strenuous exercises in the gym for hours every day. Just move your body! Go outside and take a walk, go on a bike ride around the neighborhood, or do a quick 10 minute exercise inside. Any movement counts, and…

Something is always better than nothing!

In this day and age, with all of the contaminants in our food and depletion of our soils, unfortunately diet can’t be enough for most of us to maintain optimal health and keep the parasites away for good.

My Step 3 Maintenance Protocol helps people easily and effectively maintain a good microbiome balance so we can fight  off parasites, pathogens and bacteria that would harm us in any form–and it keeps me from getting sick throughout the year too because our gut microbiome is at least 90% of our immune system!

I appreciate the company that created the Step 1 and Step 3 because they offer a money-back guarantee for a full year. That’s confidence, and it tells me these products work for pretty much everyone. But if they don’t, you can just return them (all of them). For a full year!

Give your body all the tools it needs to fight off anything that comes your way, from pathogens to viruses to bacteria to parasites. You’ll thank yourself later.

You may have one more question…

Why the Full Moon?

I only do parasite cleanses over the full moon. Why? Because that’s when it’s most effective. If I’m going to go to the effort to do a cleanse I want it to be as thorough and effective as possible.

Parasites have hormones that prompt them to migrate from wherever in our bodies they are to the intestinal tract during the full moon (this is also triggered by our internal levels of serotonin and melatonin during the full moon time). While they are there they lay eggs.

There are several reasons cleansing during the full moon is most effective:

  1. They are all in one spot: the intestinal tract. So anything we take will hit them directly (during other times of the month they could be almost anywhere in our bodies).
  2. They are more vulnerable because they have focused their efforts on procreating and laying eggs, not hiding themselves and avoiding detection or efforts to eliminate them.
  3. If I start before the full moon, I can potentially flush them out before they lay their eggs–so I don’t have to worry about as many babies later. 

The good news is we have a full moon every month–so every month we have an opportunity to cleanse!

Does that mean we cleanse every month? Probably not. But if we know this and keep it in mind we can be aware of how parasites are affecting our physical and mental health during the full moon and we can eat snacks and take supplements that keep them at bay.

Here is a quick list of parasite cleanse ingredients (find them in this amazon store) I use regularly. I will link them to explanations I have done on why and how I use them:

A Note About TikTok….

Are you on TikTok®? Recently I’ve been having a great time on the “education side” of TikTok, and i read recently that TikTok® has surpassed Google® as a search engine! Can you believe it?

That said, Tiktok® has it’s drawbacks and dangers as with any media platform, but I have learned a lot on TikTok® and it’s quickly becoming my favorite educational platform!

I have been sharing knowledge, tips and resources about how to heal naturally with a parasite cleanse on TikTok lately on my channel @thetruthaboutparasites so I’d love to see you if you are inclined!
