A gentle detox of our bodies a few times a year is a great practice. I am sure that you may remember when, as a child, your parents gave you a remedy for worms every so often?
We all know that as children we often end up kissing the dog and the cat – and sometimes even suffer them licking us with their unconditional love.
Dogs in particular are susceptible to worm infestation. Here is the catch – so are we!!
Over time – particularly those of us who are meat consumers are exposed to possible infestation.
We are mostly unaware of it but our bodies can on occasion harbor worms and other parasites such as Liver fluke! We need to maintain control over these “hangers on” as they will eventually do damage to our immune systems, and those organs where they hang out!
It is quite important that we detox at least a couple of times per year in order to maintain our bodies in peak condition and free of parasites. It is also critical for the continued health of the beneficial flora in our intestines.
This is largely where the term “Detox” comes from, although it is also used to describe treatments designed to clear old undigested and impacted matter from our digestive tract.
There are some herbs which have built a reputation for successfully dealing with worm and other parasite infestations. Some which come to mind are Wormwood and Black Walnut.
