6 Natural Ways to Get Rid of Parasites

Parasites are unwelcome organisms in the body. There are over 3,000 varieties of parasites that may invade the human body. Tapeworms, hookworms, roundworms and pinworms are just a few of the more commonly encountered parasites.

A common misconception about parasites is that they only live in the intestines.The blood, vital organs, lymph system and bodily tissues are examples of other areas in the body that parasites may live. You can catch parasites through food. For example, raw fish found in sushi has the potential to transmit parasites. Some parasites find their way into your system through your skin. Hookworms, for example, enter through the skin, move through the blood and end up in the small intestine and lungs.

When you leave parasites untreated, they can create a range of health problems. These include issues such as anemia, chronic fatigue, malnutrition, pneumonia and nausea. Here are six natural ways to rid your body of parasites:
1. Garlic

Eating garlic has been known to kill parasites. When using garlic to treat parasites, it is best to eat it before meals. Doing so will stimulate gastric secretions and kill off the invaders.
2. Honey and Papaya Seeds

Mixing honey and papaya seeds is a good strategy for killing parasites. A research study found this method to be effective in 23 out of 30 study participants. When using honey and papaya seeds, be sure to drink lots of water. This will help to cleanse your system.
3. Papain

Papain is a digestive enzyme made from papaya. Take this digestive enzyme 30 minutes before meals. In addition to killing parasites, this enzyme keeps your intestinal tract in good condition. This creates a condition that makes it difficult for parasites to infest the body on an ongoing basis.
4. Pumpkin Seeds

Eat pumpkin seeds. They are particularly effective in killing roundworms and tapeworms. Lightly pan or oven roast them to remove any possible contaminants that may be lingering on them. Pumpkin seeds are more effective for killing parasites if eaten on an empty stomach.
5. Carrots

Carrots contain an essential oil that destroys roundworms and pinworms. To kill parasites, grated carrots work best. Be sure to eat them on an empty stomach several times throughout the day.
6. Pomegranates

Pomegranates are known for their sweet and sour flavor. They are useful for destroying worms in the intestinal tract. Eat them raw in isolation of your regular meals.

Consult a doctor for the best way to treat parasites if you suspect any serious issues. Avoiding refined foods, sugars and dairy products is a good idea to avoid feeding parasites. Eat high-fiber foods to not only get rid of worms, but to create an environment that is inhospitable to all parasites. When you are going through a parasite cleanse program, increase your water intake to more effectively eliminate them from your body. Your doctor can test for parasites through stool tests or x-rays to determine if parasites are an issue for you.

Nutrition and Supplements

Avoid simple carbohydrates, such as those found in refined foods, fruits, juices, dairy products, and all sugars, except honey.
Eat more raw garlic, pumpkin seeds, pomegranates, beets, and carrots, all of which have been used traditionally to kill parasites. In one study, researchers found that a mixture of honey and papaya seeds cleared stools of parasites in 23 out of 30 subjects. Drink a lot of water to help flush out your system.
Eat more fiber, which may help get rid of worms.
Probiotics (Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacilus plantarum, Saccharomyces boulardii, and bifidobacteria, one to two times per day between meals) help keep your digestive tract healthy.
Digestive enzymes will help restore your intestinal tract to its normal state, which makes it inhospitable to parasites. Papain is an enzyme from the papaya plant that may help kill worms when taken 30 minutes before or after meals.
Vitamin C (250 - 500 mg two times a day) or, if well-tolerated, much higher doses of up to 6,000 mg per day in otherwise healthy adults -- supports the immune system. Lower vitamin C dose if diarrhea develops.
Zinc (20 - 30 mg per day) -- also helps support the immune system.


Herbs are generally a safe way to strengthen and tone the body's systems. As with any therapy, you should work with your health care provider to diagnose your problem before starting any treatment. You may use herbs as dried extracts (capsules, powders, teas), glycerites (glycerine extracts), or tinctures (alcohol extracts). People with a history of alcoholism should not take tinctures.

Many of the herbs used to treat intestinal parasites have toxic side effects or interfere with other medications. Use them only under the supervision of a qualified practitioner. Your health care provider should treat you with the most gentle herb that is effective for the type of parasite you have. A few of the herbs that your health care provider might consider include:

Garlic (Allium sativum)
Barberry (Berberis vulgaris)
Goldenseal (Hydrastis canadensis)
Oregon grape (Berberis aquifolium)
Anise (Pimpinella anisum)
Wormwood (Artemisia annua)
Curled mint (Mentha crispa)
Black walnuts (Juglans nigra)


As with other treatments, your health care provider must first diagnose the kind of parasite you have. Before prescribing a remedy, homeopaths take into account a person's constitutional type -- your physical, emotional, and intellectual makeup. An experienced homeopath assesses all of these factors as well as any current symptoms when determining the most appropriate remedy for a particular individual. The following remedies may be used:

Cuprum oxidatum nigrum
