Parasites Be Gone! My Go-To Antiparasitic Regimen
Let's talk about how to sync your anti-parasitic regimen with the lunar cycle for maximum efficacy!
This week we’ve been talking about the role of the lunar cycle in our frequency spectrum - and the effects of parasites on the body…But did you know that there is an innate connection between parasitic activity and the lunar cycle?
The body’s circadian rhythms correspond to the cycling of the moon. During the lunar cycle, we experience changes in certain neurotransmitters. In particular, the full moon corresponds with a decrease in melatonin and an increase in serotonin.
Less available melatonin may decrease immune function, making the body less adept at fending off parasites; while a surge of serotonin actually excites and feeds parasites, optimizing their breeding conditions.
Therefore, if you are struggling with a parasitic load, you may find yourself feeling more sluggish, inflamed, flu-ey or digestively impaired around the full moon. To disrupt this parasitic cycling, I have developed a rule of thumb for my parasitically-challenged clients during the lunar cycle:
Take your recommended antiparasitic regimen for a full 30 days - then, repeat the regimen 3 days before the full moon, on the day itself, and for 3 days after, for three months following your first 30 day cycle.
Bookending this circadian rhythm with a 7-day preventative protocol after your first full month of antiparasitics can do wonders for minimizing the effects of parasitic activity.
So which antiparasitics do I recommend?
My favorites include:
- Papain & Papaya seeds
- Clove (liquid form is easy to add to water or tea)
- Black Walnut
- Activated charcoal
- My personally formulated anti-microbial, antiparasitic blend, Immune Mover
- Mastic gum for healing & sealing the gut
- Non aspergillus-based digestive enzymes (I like papaya enzymes, especially for children)
Combining a prophylactic like Immune Mover with a papaya-based digestive enzyme and avoiding undercooked meats, sushi or raw vegetables for the 7 day full moon cycle is a solid place to start.
