Intestinal Parasites Cause Allergies (Here’s How I Rid Mine)

In Digestion and Allergies, Environmental Allergies, Food Allergy Natural Treatment, Parasites by Anthony33 Comments

One of the most undiagnosed health problems in the world is the infection of the intestines by a parasite. These infections are so common that experts believe that at least 85% of North Americans are harboring parasites in their bodies. Parasites are the most toxic health issues that can be present in the human body and they are the most basic cause for a suppressed immune system. Most doctors are uneducated in parasitology and don’t recognize even the most blatant symptoms of parasitic infection, so here is some information regarding symptoms and treatments of intestinal parasites in humans.

What are Parasites?

Humans never live alone. We rely on other organisms to keep us alive and other organisms rely on us to keep them alive. We like to take probiotics because these bacteria are beneficial to many bodily processes like detoxification, vitamin production, food digestion, etc. However, there are organisms that have evolved to take advantage of human evolution for their own survival.

These organisms are called parasites: anything that lives off of another living being that steals nutrients and gives nothing in return to its host.

We live in symbiosis with probiotics, we both benefit from each other’s survival and there is no problem with this. But parasites have evolved over millions of years to infect animals and go undetected while they live inside of you, steal your nutrients, reproduce and basically party in your intestines like a college frat house all day.

The damage that they do to your body is immense and you must make every effort to prevent infection and kill the existing ones in your body.

Types of Intestinal Parasites in Humans

There are many types of parasitic infection. Usually, people think of tapeworms when this topic is brought up, but they also think that this condition is very rare.

It’s not.

And while thinking a physical worm inside of you is scary, what about all of the microscopic organisms that are infecting you as well?

WormsIntestinal parasites in humans worms

These parasites are small animals that can live inside the body. You can swallow their eggs from many food sources like unwashed fruit, undercooked meat, and vegetables. The worms then hatch inside of your intestines and live there. (1)

When the worms live in your intestines, they defecate after they eat your food. This will cause your intestines to absorb the fecal matter into your bloodstream, causing sickness.

These parasites will eat your food before you have the chance the digest it – causing malnourishment. Sometimes, the worms can find their way into the stomach, bloodstream or liver and severely damage these organs.

Types of infectious worms include:

  • Roundworms
  • Tapeworms
  • Pinworms
  • Hookworms

Intestinal worms are actually much more common than you think and can live inside of you for a lifetime, causing many health problems. (2)


If you drink contaminated water, you risk infection with Giardia. These protozoa live in your intestines and immediately start reproducing. This infection will cause digestive symptoms like diarrhea, gas, greasy stools, abdominal cramping and nausea.

The most important symptom to note of Giardia is severe dehydration.


In our colon, we contain a beneficial yeast called Candida albicans that helps digest the rest of our food and shapes our poop. However, when the diet is too high in sugar and refined grains, this yeast overgrows into our large intestine and becomes a parasite.

The large intestine is not where Candida had evolved symbiotically with humans. This yeast seeks more sugar when not contained and starts poking holes in the intestinal wall so that it can leech sugar and nutrients from our bloodstream. This can cause a multitude of problems and forms the basis of the well-known condition of “leaky gut syndrome.”

Candida is well talked about but it is often misunderstood as something we need to get rid of. Actually, we need to modify our diet to contain it in our colon. Refined grains and sugars cause this yeast to overgrow and do damage to our intestines. (3)

If the yeast overgrowth is bad enough, it will spread through your intestinal wall into your bloodstream so that it can reproduce and travel in hopes to reach an organ that has more sugar. The yeast can reach your heart, liver and brain.

When yeast overgrows in your large intestine, it will start to produce alcohol as a byproduct of fermentation of sugar. This may produce symptoms like lethargy and confusion as if you were slightly drunk. (4)

This is about as much as we know about Candida yeast so everything else that you read should be taken skeptically.

The yeast infection can be treated with coconut oil, a sugar-free diet and healthy nutrition to support your immune system that is supposed to keep it in check. (5)

Symptoms of Intestinal Parasites in Humans

Infections by parasites have been linked to numerous health issues that can’t be defined by a few conditions. They may do anything to you because they are stealing your nutrients and you are absorbing their fecal matter into your bloodstream.

Some basic indications of a parasitic infection include:

  • Allergies to food and pollen
  • Chronic digestive problems like gas, diarrhea, constipation, nausea, leaky gut, and yeast infection.
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Skin problems like dry skin, acne, rashes and sores
  • Mood problems like anxiety, mood swings, nervousness, depression, confusion, restfulness, etc.
  • Sleep problems like insomnia, teeth grinding, bed-wetting and nightmares.
  • Weight and appetite issues like weight gain, loss of appetite OR insatiable hunger.
  • Muscle and joint problems like pain, cramping, numbness, etc.
  • Blood sugar problems
  • Anemia
  • Sexual and reproductive problems like impotence, erectile dysfunction, PMS, urinary tract infections, fibroids, menstrual irregularities, prostate problems, etc.
  • Excessive saliva, sight degeneration, bad breath, and other illnesses are also symptoms.
  • Rectal itching
  • Dark circles under eyes
  • Many more symptoms are possible.

These symptoms are all either from the physical damage that the parasite does to your body or the result of a nutritional deficiency caused by the parasite consuming most of a specific nutrient that you consume.

Many people in the first world have mineral deficiencies like magnesium, calcium, silica, and sulfur that may be consumed by the parasites before you digest them.

Causes of Intestinal Parasites in Humans

There are many ways that you can contract parasites. They are usually swallowed with undercooked meat like sushi, beef and pork. If you drink water from lakes, ponds or creeks, they may also easily be infected. Unwashed or contaminated fruits and vegetables can also contain parasites.

It’s very easy to transmit a parasite. They can be absorbed through the skin by hand-touching or interacting with an animal or pet. Whether or not your lifestyle allows them to live inside you is the real concern. (6)

Your diet can promote parasitic infections and make them much worse. Diets high in sugar are the biggest victims. Sugar allows for easy access to cellular energy for parasites and lets them quickly reproduce and heal from damage.

If you want to get rid of parasites, you’ll need to try a sugar-free diet, or at least a reduced-sugar diet with minimal fruit.

Salt also provides nutrients and electrolytes to parasites infecting your intestines. You’ll need to try to eliminate salt and sodium from your diet if you suspect that there is a parasitic infection in your intestines. (7)

Artificial sweeteners, colors, flavors, drugs, alcohol and anti-inflammatories also promote parasitic infections. They weaken your immune system which has evolved to rapidly get rid of these infections before they start.

How to Get Rid of Parasites in Humans

The key to getting rid of parasites in humans is making a hostile environment for them in your body, rather than one that promotes their life.

What you need to do is follow a strict diet that eliminates all things that make the problem worse. That means eliminate sugar, grains, dairy, alcohol, caffeine, artificial additives, drugs and salt for as long as you feel necessary. Many experts recommend a doing this for about a month, but following this strict diet may be enough for a few weeks if you don’t mess up.

Try to incorporate supplements and foods that kill parasites like:

  • Raw garlic
  • Onion
  • Coconut oil
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Probiotics and fermented foods like kefir, yogurt, kombucha, vegetables, etc
  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Aloe vera
  • Black walnut
  • Goldenseal
  • Oil of oregano
  • Grapeseed extract
  • Wormwood
  • Spices like cayenne, black pepper and cinnamon
  • Diatomaceous earth
  • MSM
  • Digestive Enzymes
  • Fiber
  • L-Glutamine
  • Papaya Leaf and Bromelain

Of course, a diet full of fresh fruits and vegetables is needed by your body as well.

Parasites are deterred by bitter and spicy foods. The majority of this list incorporates foods that are one of these.

Some supplements like diatomaceous earth have small crystals that physically slice the intestinal worms up and kill them. Others like MSM and glutamine are essential nutrients that assist your immune system in killing infections.

There are many other supplements and foods that you can use with this information as a foundation.

My Personal Fight With Parasitic Infection

When I was a teenager, I did not even passively consider that humans commonly had parasites. I did not think about that as a factor to my health or something contributing to my allergies. I was suffering from debilitating symptoms of allergies that hindered the production of my fast-paced life.

My schedule was filled with school and two jobs that required my attention, energy, motivation and focus. It was hard dealing with this while I had so many exhausting symptoms like allergies, skin problems, sleep issues, anxiety and depression. I wanted to feel better so that I could be productive with my daily energy.

I did some research and determined that candida yeast overgrowth and parasitic infection was very common in the United States. Since my diet consisted of a lot of sugar, grains, and sushi, I thought that it was very possible that I had an undetectable infection.

So I took action…

I changed my lifestyle following the protocol to kill anything in my digestive system for two months by:

  • Consuming supplements like apple cider vinegar, diatomaceous earth, MSM, bitter and spicy foods.
  • Eliminating drugs and alcohol that could suppress my immune system during the cleansing process.
  • Avoiding salt and sodium that provides electrolytes to parasites.
  • Avoiding sugar(especially refined sugar, but also fruit) that feeds pathogenic yeast and worms.
  • Rehydrating the cells of my body with natural nutrients from clean water and raw vegetables.
  • Taking a parasite cleanser called ParaGONE by Renewlife that incorporates many herbs and spices that effectively kill all parasites. I highly recommend this product to anybody that thinks that they may have a parasite.

This is a great supplement that I recommend every adult try once. It will get rid of any parasites or infection that you may have. You likely have one and don’t know it! Just like I did.

Parasite Cleanse for Intestinal Parasites in Humans

This parasite cleanser was very effective for my symptoms of allergies. After following a cleansing diet and taking these as a supplement for 2 months, my skin cleared up amazingly and my allergy symptoms diminished to maybe a sneeze or two each day.

A product like this is a very effective tool against parasites and will naturally eliminate the problem along with your symptoms quickly and effectively for a long time. Many of my most prominent and small symptoms have diminished from allergies to dark circles.

I would recommend that everybody take this product and follow an anti-parasite diet if they haven’t already during their lifetime.

That’s not an exaggeration because I did not think that I had a parasitic infection at first and now my health has changed dramatically and I feel amazing.

  1. Hello Anthony
    I woke up in the morning with empty Diatomaceous and MSM,Then take Active Charcoal two hours later. Later in the afternoon I took MSM again.Then I take Probiotic before I go to bed at night, is that reasonable?

    1. Author

      That sounds fine to me. I usually prefer probiotics with a meal, as well as the MSM. But different methods work for different people. However, the DE should definitely be taken on an empty stomach.

  2. Hi Anthony,

    This is so informative. I think i could now connect the puzzle on why black pepper, cinnamon, acv, spicy foods can make someone lose some pounds. Thank you for this! Antihistamine has been my partner for so long, so i guess i will have to detach myself with it in a few weeks.

  3. Hello Anthony

    Thank you very much for your blog post, which showed me some confidence in the treatment of urticaria. Through your article, I recommended that I bought Quercetin, MSM, Diatomaceous, Probiotic, Active Charcoal.
    My symptoms are hives that I’ve been taking antihistamines to relieve my allergies, and I’ve had acne on my face and neck over the years.And my skin is very dry, and my face often has a red rash.I can often hear a noise in my stomach.I can often hear noises and farts in my stomach,I feel bad in my gut and I believe in parasites,If I take at the same time among MSM and Diatomaceous and Active Charcoal is used to clean the parasite, Quercetin is used to control the urticaria, Probiotic used to repair the intestines.
    If take so many kinds of products at the same time, I don’t know in what dose and order. I was wondering if I take first among MSM and Diatomaceous clean parasites. Quercetin is used to control the urticaria. Probiotic used to repair the intestinal function. I’m more worried about together will take a variety of products is not very good? Or I only used MSM, Quercetin and Probiotic products at the beginning. Please give me some advice, thank you very much.

      All of these supplements can be used for the purpose that they provide. And each one is different. I think it’s silly that I often get these questions of “is it okay to take at the same time, etc.” because this might indicate that you don’t understand the purpose of the item you are consuming. We should really think about what each supplement is doing so that we can utilize these tools wisely against parasite infections. To me, it’s obvious to not take diatomaceous earth with food because I fully understand what it is. Throughout my site, I try to explain what my favorite supplements can do for you. What’s worked for me is taking DE with a lot of water on a completely empty stomach. I’d also take probiotics and MSM with food. Let me know if there’s more specific things I can help with.

  4. Hi Anthony,

    I’m reading through your site a find a lot of what you write interesting, but I’m still scetptical. I have a 4 year old son with severe food allergies (peanut, treenuts, kiwi, egg, whitefish, lagumes and a lot of more fruits) and asthma. He already went into anaphylaxic shock 3 times and we had to use an epipen. The products that you use like the MSM christals and the parasite cleanser. From which age on is it safe to use? I would love to try some alternative things without it being dangerous. Did you suffer from asthma? How are looking towards dairy and the connections with asthma? I’m not ready yet to stop modern medicine with him this would be to dangerous because he already reacted 3 times heavily, but I would like to ad these products to his diet. Thanks in advance!

    1. Author

      Hey Melissa,
      I’m not saying “Stop trusting medicine and throw away your drugs” and I was never saying that and never will. Natural supplementation for the wellbeing of my nutrition has benefitted me over taking harsh and addictive drugs. For asthma, medicine may save your life. Anybody telling you to stop trusting your doctor and to listen to them only is full of shit. I’m saying to consider sulfur deficiency and parasitic infections as an addition to whatever you’re doing. And perhaps you will find that your problems have healed themselves. A child as young as a newborn can take MSM because it is as toxic as water–not at all. However, you still want to start slow to avoid potential detox symptoms. I don’t have asthma. That’s something entirely different from allergies, but may correlate. It’s more about the physical damage and sensitivity of your lungs, rather than the immune system not knowing what’s good for itself. As for dairy and asthma, I see no connection at all. However, I’m not an expert. Let me know more about what you think!

  5. I have chronic angioedema. Would doing this cleanse and taking Qucerin help my situation? I have been taking all kinds of antihistemines for 4 years now and still have the swelling in my face, tongue, and throat. I would appreciate any help you can give me. I don’t have hives with my condition and I’m not allergic to anything that I know of. I am very guilty of eating WAY too much sugar.

  6. Anthony,

    How long after taking things like; MSM, cayenne pepper, mimosa pudica, etc.. do you have to wait to take the charcoal? From what I understand charcoal will absorb everything, so I would assume you would not want to take something that you want in your system and then follow it up with charcoal.

    Thank you for your help,

    1. Author

      That’s a very good question. You’ll want to take activated charcoal after you take the protocols to kill intestinal parasites. So if you are using diatomaceous earth and MSM, you should wait an hour or two after you take those and then follow with activated charcoal. The AC cleans up the parasites that have died or are dying because of its adsorptive capabilities. Just like a sweep and mop job for your intestines. You don’t want to take activated charcoal on a full stomach or right after you took another supplement. That’s because the AC will neutralize the supplement and capture it to be excreted without absorption. Hospitals use it when patients have overdosed on drugs or alcohol for this same reason.

  7. Anthony,

      Such a good question. Yes, you’ll want to take activated charcoal away from everything else about 2 hours apart. So I’ve found that what works best for intestinal parasites is taking a treatment that helps to kill them and follow up 2 hours later with activated charcoal. So I’d take diatomaceous earth in the morning and activated charcoal in the afternoon. Makes sense because you don’t want the activated charcoal to adsorb the other treatments.

  8. Hi Anthony

    Did your allergies return after the cleanse ?

    1. Hi Anthony

      Did you have symptoms of histamine intolerance and did parasite cleansing help with that too ? Please do reply. Thanks in advance.

      1. Author

        Yes, I had histamine intolerance and parasite cleansing helps me tremendously. Actually, Candida cleansing does a lot for me and it seems like most parasite cleanses take care of excess Candida as well, which might explain why they work so well for me. For me, histamine intolerance and food intolerance go hand-in-hand and they are dramatically affected by Candida overgrowth. I can tell because on days after I consume too much sugar or alcohol, my food intolerance symptoms come back strong.

  9. Hi Anthony
    Did your allergies come back after you finished your parasite cleanse ?

    1. Author

      No, my allergies have never returned after an extensive parasite cleanse. This was a permanent fix for me. Although, I still take measures to prevent infection again.

  10. Hi Anthony from down under Australia. Very interested in your website and info, thank you. At any point did you consider a pharmaceutical wormer like Combantrim to help you.?

    1. Author

      YES! I have considered albendazole and fenbendazole to see if it could kill more parasites. But it seemed like these natural methods worked effectively, but much better enough. I might consider trying to obtain them in the future just to try it.

    1. Author

      I would ideally like to do it twice a year but at least once. Sometimes I keep track of the moon’s cycle and use the idea that the full moon hatches insect larvae. So I schedule mini parasite cleanses around that time. I’m not sure if it works better but I like the idea! Haha

  11. Hey Anthony!

    Thanks for such great work and amazing information. For the cleanse, can you give example of foods you avoided and bitter foods you incorporated. Thanks!!!

    1. Author

      Hey Cynthia,
      The foods you have to avoid are carbohydrates, especially simple carbs. I’m sorry to say this, but it’s the truth: on a parasite cleanse you cannot eat sugar or large amounts of bread or pasta, no fruits, and no drinking alcohol. You need to do this for the parasite cleanse to be effective. I’ve made this mistake numerous times. I would go full on with so many supplements but I would fall in and eat a donut. But this ruined the whole thing. Diet is just as important as the supplements while killing and eliminating parasites. It is really tough. Kind of reminded me of the story of the Buddha. But finally, I am parasite free and I feel incredible every day. So worth it. As for bitter foods: wormwood tea, oregano oil, other herbs. Herbs are generally bitter and parasites dislike this, just like spicy foods.

      I am glad to hear that I had helped someone learn about intestinal parasites that cause allergies. Getting rid of parasites in humans like worms, bacteria, viruses, and yeast will benefit your immune system in a plethora of ways. Once you eradicate something that is literally defecating inside of you, your body will obviously be much cleaner. The issue of having intestinal parasites is more disgusting than it seems, while it creates many effects in your body that you might not even recognize. I would highly recommend an intestinal parasite cleanse for all humans because you just never can be sure what’s inside of you.

  12. Hello Sir,

    I am suffering in the same problem of parasite in human body. Can I send you the image of intestine worm. Please suggest some remedy for it. I am tensed and sick.
    Write me soon via my mailing address.

    Looking forward your cooperation

      Hey there,
      Go right ahead, I enjoy inspecting the intestinal parasites that humans have. My contact information can be found on my contact page.

  13. Hello and thanks for sharing, you have done and awesome job with your website, tons of great information. Your website is well detailed and thanks also for spreading the word so that others can be aware.

  14. It’s crazy to hear that we have parasites in our bodies without even knowing it. I’m glad that you gave us some food to help get rid of them. Now I can sleep better lol.

    1. Author

      Hey Sherita,
      Unfortunately, everybody has intestinal parasites but the severity for each person will vary. It’s mostly a yeast problem but some have a few worms. If you eat sushi, it may be a bigger problem as well. You just need to make sure that you cut back on sugar and eat spicy and bitter foods to prevent serious infection.
