I have dealt with iron deficiency anemia for years. Once my iron was so low (hemoglobin of 6, when 12 or higher was the goal) that I was supposed to go for a transfusion. But instead my holistic diva mama jumped in and nursed me back to health with some high iron liver and onion doses daily for 3 weeks. Yuck. But it worked. However, I stopped eating beef, especially liver, and my iron level started to creep back down. I have traveled extensively to several countries, have eaten more than my fair share of sushi, and have had pets living in and out of the house. All of these put me at risk for parasites. I have never had one doctor even mention this as a possible reason for my chronic iron deficiency, and a host of other embarrassing symptoms that will only be discussed with my cleanse and detox clients. But after discussing some of these symptoms with a nutrition and wellness colleague, it occurred to both of u that perhaps parasites could be causing me so many problems.
So I did it – I got mad as hell at the thought of something living off of me and giving me nothing but grief in return. So I removed sweets except for a couple of fruits from my diet, all meat, and starch, and drank the nastiest concoction of herbal teas on the face of the earth – for 2 weeks. And that’s when it all happened for me. You may recall a while back when I lost a bunch of weight as a result of going gluten free, but I still had the kangaroo pouch and anemia. Well that disappeared with the two week cleanse I did with an emphasis on getting rid of the freeloading parasitic bastards.
I will be discussing some of the symptoms nobody wants to talk about in a google hangout this weekend with some detoxing diva friends who have signed up for the chat. Then we will do a free 14 day parasite cleanse together. If you’d like to join us, sign up here. I’m not charging a thing this time for the info I will share with you although I know the value of it, so it certainly won’t hurt to join us.
Have you ever done or thought about doing a parasite cleanse? Do you know the symptoms? If so, share below. And I’ll see you at the hangout.
