SHTF Doctor: Herbs & Foods That Naturally Kill Intestinal Parasites
We tend to look to God as a source of all healing. It is said that He has provided all that we will ever need:
“THE FRUIT OF IT SHALL BE FOR EATING AND LEAF OF IT FOR HEALING…” (EZEKIEL 47:12)
While some people may dismiss herbal remedies as quackery, the use of botanicals is well rooted in medical practice. Ancient doctors methodically collected information about herbs and developed well-defined pharmacopeias to treat a variety of ailments.
More than a quarter of all drugs used today contain active ingredients derived from those same ancient plants. These herbal remedies can not only save you a lot on your health care bill but in a survival situation give you the upper hand in your health and in bartering.
It wasn’t long ago that all we had was herbal remedies to help us in sickness. So why not get back to the old days and see what remedies you can use now and learn some new ones.
Native American medicine has long been touted for its effective use of plants in healing a variety of diseases. Native American medicine is believed to be as old as 40,000 years and is practically a combination of health practices of more than 500 distinct nations residing in the Americas prior to European exploration at the end of the 15th century.
Natural supplements and treatments are gaining traction these days due to ever increasing medical costs as well as their benefit of zero side-effects. Over-the-counter prescription drugs are less potent against some health issues and are thus losing popularity over time. And in a disaster or total collapse of the world, as we know it, these herbs could be grown or collected as a main or secondary source of medical treatment.
Parasites are a fairly common problem, even in America. Most Americans think that there is no way that they could become infected. They live in one of the richest countries in the world, don’t they? Aren’t strict food and health codes followed?
Well, yes and no. There are strict food and health codes; the problem is that, due to a lack of funding, less than 1 percent of food products are actually tested. Also, because of the global food market, you can buy produce regardless of whether it is seasonal or not, such as strawberries in December. Some imported foods are contaminated with parasites and when you consume them, you can become infested with ugly, crawling, eating, breeding parasites and never even know it.
Even the CDC admits that many Americans are affected and are completely unaware of it. In fact, the CDC says that about 300,000 people become infected by the trypanosome cruzi parasite that causes Chaga disease, a debilitating disease that results in a lifetime of brain and heart problems. American hospitals reported more than 1,000 cases of tapeworms every single year, and the cat poop parasite, Toxoplasma gondii, infects about 60 million people in the US every year.

Natural Remedies for Internal Parasites
The sheer numbers of these parasites are unsettling enough without considering their harm. Parasitic infections can be a lifetime struggle, leading to blindness, heart failure, seizures, and in some cases death.
Not everyone has to worry, as mother nature can provide us with peace of mind with natural and effective remedies to fight these parasites. Including some of these foods in your diet could make your body a less attractive host to the numerous parasites in existence.
This might come as a surprise, but do not underestimate this common household herb. It is actually among the most effective herbs for ridding the body of any unwanted organisms. Garlic is able to slow and kill over 60 types of fungus and 20 types of bacteria, as well as some of the most potent viruses.
Garlic has a history of killing parasites and controlling secondary fungal infections. It also detoxifies while gently stimulating elimination, and has antioxidant properties to protect against oxidation caused by parasite toxins. The active components in garlic that kill parasites are allicin and ajoene. These compounds can kill amoebas including one-cell varieties, as well as pinworms and hookworms.
Allicin is not present in garlic in its natural state. When garlic is chopped or otherwise damaged, the enzyme alliinase acts on the chemical alliin, converting it into allicin, the active component contributing to its success for killing parasites.
To get the most out of garlic, be sure to use it crushed or juiced. Start off with 1 clove and work your way up to as many as you can stomach.
