PARASITES IN HUMANS
Even in the industrialized nations of the world, almost everybody has some kind of health problem. If you were to poll your family members, your friends, the people you work with, and ask them about their health or how they feel - you would find that almost everybody has some kind of ailment or health problem. Some people may fight daily with small nagging problems, while other people battle serious degenerative health conditions. Yet we go on day by day thinking that poor health is a normal part of life.
It seems to go against common sense - despite the fact that we are living in an age of technology, sickness and disease still runs rampant. Despite all of the research into vitamins, nutrition and diseases the health of the average North American is deteriorating. How many people do you know that seem to be always getting sick? How many people do you know that consistantly battle against chronic fatigue and a lack of energy and vitality?
What has caused this problem? Many experts have various opinions, but two of the most commonalities comprise of problems within the digestive system - and the prevelance of parasites within the human body. Most people recognize that parasites exist in developing countries, but few realize that the parasitic epidemic is also here in North America. Likewise the average person does not think it is unusual or problematic to have a bowel movement only once a day, once every second day, or once every few days. But yet these conditions are slowly robbing us of our health and vitality.
Everything you eat, drink, or handle could be inviting unwanted guests to set up home inside your body. Most people do not want to even think of the possibility of it being true, but it is the reality of the world in which we live in. Harmful organisms affect billions of people worldwide of all races and demographic regions. It's estimated that more than 150 million Americans alone may have these invaders lurking within their bodies without even knowing it!
Conservatively, it's estimated that 85% of the population may have some form of parasite lurking in their bodies! These intruders live in and feed off the host, depriving them of vitamins, nutrients, and amino acids; altering natural pH levels, decreasing energy levels, and creating an acidic environment within the body.
Compromised health is a direct result of parasite infestation in our bodies. These invaders live off our body's life-force and the sustenance that we ingest. In addition to a loss of nourishment and cellular damage, the toxicities produced by these creatures play havoc with our immune system and degrade the optimum health of their host. Sickness, disease, and numerous health challenges can be the direct resultant of continued exposure and infestation. But unhealthy organisms can be safely eliminated from the human body.
What exactly is an invading organism? A parasitical organism is a lifeform that lives off the host, the host being you or me. The parasites live a parallel life inside our bodies - feeding off either our own energy, our own cells or the food we eat, and even feeding off the health supplements we use. In recent medical studies, it has been estimated that 85% of the North American adult population has at least one form of invading organism living in their bodies. Some authorities feel that this figure may be as high as 95%.
The immediate question that comes to mind when people are informed of this situation is: How can a parasite possibly live in my body and I don't even know it is there? The answer to this is simple. The purpose of a parasitical organism is to not make itself known. A smart invader lives without being detected because if it is detected, of course, something is going to be done to eradicate it. If you think these organisms are stupid, think again. They are highly intelligent invaders. Not intelligent in the same way humans are, but they are intelligent in their ability to survive and reproduce, which is of course, the purpose of any lifeform on the planet.
We don't know why every generation prior to modern times made de-worming and internal cleansing a regular part of their lives, but our generation seemingly chooses to ignore this basic practice. It is recognized that people in third world countries have parasites. It is also recognized that most of the animals we eat, and pets who live in our homes have an innumerable number of parasites and worms, but for whatever reason we seem to dismiss the notion that we as a modern society might also have foreign entities living within us as well. For whatever reason the medical profession chooses to try to down-play this fact, but this knowledge is becoming more and more publicly aware in this day.
Harmful organisms live everywhere and are commonly transmitted to humans in diverse ways, such as insect bites, walking barefoot, handling objects, human contact, animal contact, water, fruits & vegetables, eating under-cooked meats and fish, and numerous other ways.
Food handlers have been in the news lately because of their role in the spread of parasites. Some people who prepare food, as well as the general population do not wash their hands after going to the bathroom. When you consider that many of the unhealthy organisms are spread by fecal-oral contact, this lack of personal hygiene may be one of the more common factors in the spread of these invaders. Consider everything that you touch that is handled by others; money, shopping carts, door handles, menus, salt shakers, and everything else -- the possibilities for contamination are enormous.
In spite of some efforts to control parasites, their global impact has not been appreciably reduced for a variety of reasons. Why are parasitic infections among the world's greatest neglected conditions? The illusion is that it simply can't be happening... because no one is really talking about it. You don't hear the newspapers and television stations reporting it enough. You don't see people asking for larger donations to research the effects of invading organisms. When a topic is rarely discussed, who is going to take it seriously?
There is simply very little research being done to stop the spread of invading organism infection. Funding is very low for any research into this area, even if harmful organisms are the single most undiagnosed health challenge in the history of the human race. We have a tremendous parasite problem right here in the United States, even if it is not being properly addressed.
It takes an informed person to take charge of the health of their own body. Research the facts and with an adequate cleansing regime, the effects of exposure and the continued reinfection prevalent in the course of our lifetimes, can be minimized and brought under control - resulting in perhaps reduced illness and disease in our lives.
