(NaturalNews) According to the World Health Organization, 3.5 billion people suffer from some type of parasitic infection. Not all of these people live in third world countries; many in the developed world have any number of parasitic infections, some of which are so highly contagious that extremely casual contact with something that has been handled by an infected person can infect another person.

It is extremely easy to contract a parasite infection. Contaminated water is one source of infection. Improperly washed or undercooked food is a common means of infection. Transmission from pets is another. Contact with another infected person is also a common route of infection. Travel can escalate the risks. Antibiotics pose another problem because they interfere with normal intestinal flora, some which tend to control certain types of infection.

Acute parasite infection is usually characterized by greater or lesser abdominal distress and diarrhea, often urgent and attended by burning sensations and tremendous fluid loss. Only rarely is there any visible evidence of infection. Moreover, many laboratories fail to detect the presence of parasites even when presented with specimens from infected persons. It is therefore sometimes necessary for the patient to determine whether infection is likely and to self-administer some remedy since allopathic medicine requires a diagnosis before prescriptions can be written.

Once a condition has moved from acute to chronic, there may be alternating periods of constipation and diarrhea, abdominal distention and bloating, intestinal cramping followed by burning sensations and the sudden urge to eliminate. Generally, there is malabsorption of nutrients, especially fatty foods. Irritable bowel syndrome, blood sugar fluctuations, sudden food cravings, and extreme emaciation or weight gain are all possible symptoms -- but, as stated, not necessarily proof of parasitic infection.

Itching is a possible clue to infection, especially among children; however, the absence of itching does not mean there is no infection. The itching tends to be worst where there is moisture: nose, eyes, ears, and of course the anus. Skin sensitivity is also common: rashes, eczema-like conditions, and even serious eruptions.

Many parasites affect the nervous system and give rise to sleep disorders, such as insomnia. In children, hyperactivity is common, but adults may have symptoms ranging from depression to anxiety. Some parasites affect the brain and memory. In short, the part of the body affected depends on where the parasites have invaded: blood, intestines, liver, pancreas, kidneys, brain, etc. To make infection even more difficult to determine, add to this scenario the fact that many, if not most, parasites migrate so the symptoms could change depending on where the parasites are at any given time.

To get rid of parasites:

* Do a good parasite cleanse just in case -- such as one like Hulda Clark's. Her fluke theory of all cancers and diseases may be far-fetched, but her cleanses are excellent.

* Coconut oil - parasites hate it and it will help your liver (it helps keep the bile ducts open) and your balance of healthy fats too.

Some good herbs to use for parasites are:

* Artemisia

This is used to expel pinworms and treat malaria. Be sure to use the form artemisia annua, which is a famed anti-malarial herb that is in many parasitic formulas and has significant anti-cancer properties as well. While Artemisia annua is safe, Artemisia absinthium (also known as "wormwood") should be used cautiously due to its toxic and potentially addictive qualities.

* Black Walnut

Black walnut tincture and capsules are used for worms & parasitic infections.

* Cloves

Powdered cloves are used to kill larvae before they hatch. Cloves are among the most antibacterial spices known, but as we all know, a few cloves go a long way. Those with some familiarity with herbal medicine know that clove oil is also used to numb pain due to dental infection; but few know that part of the reason clove oil works so well is that it alleviates the infection. Cloves are antiseptic, bactericidal, and antiparasitic. For parasite cleansing, it is necessary to use fresh cloves that have not been irradiated. Most spices are irradiated with 35,000 the amount of radiation permitted in a chest x-ray. This is ostensibly done to eradicate bacteria, but spices are generally excellent bactericides so the irradiation is merely a way of destroying the precious properties of spices. Non-irradiated spices are available from most high-end health foods stores.

Other Beneficial Herbs Include:

* Agrimony for treating trichomonas.

* Barberry tincture is used for giardiasis & malaria.

* Echinacea tincture is used for trichomonas

* Garlic oil is used for parasitic infections.

* Goldenseal tincture used for malaria & giardiasis.

* Ipecac syrup is used for dysentery.

* Oregon Grape Root used for giardiasis & malaria.

* Pau D' Arco antiparasitic.

* Prickly Ash used to to eliminate pinworms.
