How to do the parasite detox:
Components: Mimosa Pudica Seed, Anti-Parasite Blend, (optional: colon cleanse, activated charcoal)
*Please note that for a person who is relatively healthy, it will usually take at least 90 days to rid the body of a parasite infestation. For one who has any chronic illness, it will likely take up to two years. So be diligent.
Mimosa Pudica seed (MPS) is a very powerful anti-parasitic herb. It has properties to mildly “stun” adult parasites, then suffocates them. Nothing gets immune to suffocation, so it always works! But as the adult parasites perish, they not only pass more eggs, but they send out chemical signals that “activate” cysts, which are essentially more eggs that were passed previously. The MPS will not kill these cysts and eggs. That’s where the anti-parasite blend (APB) comes in. You will need both the MPS & the APB! I tried it with just MPS once and terribly re-infested myself due to these thousands of eggs hatching out.
As the parasites die off they can create something that we actually call, “Die off”, or Herxheimer reaction. This is the result of the toxins released as the parasites die and can make some people feel quite ill—like a mild case of the flu. In order to help with that it can be very helpful not only to drink lots of water, but to take some Activated Charcoal powder, which can bind these toxins so that they can be safely passed in the stool. We usually recommend 1 tsp of Activated Charcoal powder in a large glass of water once or twice per day as needed for “die off” symptoms. The caution to using both MPS and Activated Charcoal is that both of them CAN cause some constipation. This is one of the reasons why we use the Colon Cleanse product. For this product we start with one capsule of the colon cleanse, taken with food, and waiting a few days to see if the frequency of bowel movements increases. If it does not, we increase by one capsule and again wait. We do this until there are two bowel movements per day.
The definition of constipation is less than two bowel movements per day. Really, no one should embark on a parasite detox until they are having two bowel movements per day and absolutely not if they’re not having at least one per day. If your colon is plugged up, so is everything upstream. If you think of your body as a funnel, the bottom part of the funnel representing the colon, you can see that if things are plugged up at the “bottom”, everything else will just overflow, and this can bring many issues including eczema, psoriasis, bad breath and much, much more. If you haven’t watched our liver series on our YouTube channel, I encourage you to do so. I go into great detail about the effect of both parasites and constipation on the liver and other parts of the body. Here is a link for that playlist:
You can do the parasite detox basically two ways. Most people who have never done a parasite detox really need at least a solid month of taking the products daily, then switch to the “Full Moon Challenge.” But if you choose to do the 90 days, you really need to do it for a few weeks, then give your body a break for a week or so, then come back to it again.
Parasites are much more active during full moon, and this makes accessing them much easier and more effective, hence the Full Moon Challenge!
Either method works, it’s just that when you have to take it for a long time, as those with chronic illnesses will need to, it gets old (and expensive) taking capsules every day. The full moon makes it easier for a long term need. And it works!
Since Mimosa pudica seed works largely by its texture, be sure not to take it with any other supplement or food for at least 45-60 minutes before or after. Only water—no juice, etc. And again, it CAN cause some issues with constipation since it bulks up in the colon. So make sure to keep your bowels moving at least twice per day.
For the full moon protocol, I like to start two days prior to full moon and take the product all the way through to two days after full moon for a total of 5 days. I take 4-6 capsules twice daily, but it also depends on your size. For example, I weigh a little under 100# and I take 5 capsules, my husband is around 170# and he takes 6. I take these first thing in the morning with a big glass of water, then an hour or two before bedtime again. How many months you will do this is entirely dependent on the results and your health conditions. That’s not something we can give any definite time frame for, but personally I do the full moon challenge almost monthly and I almost always see parasites. When you have a chronic disease (Lyme, mold toxicity, autoimmunity, cancer, etc.) parasites really get a foothold in the body.
For the Anti-parasite blend, we take 2-4 capsules per day, again, my husband takes more. This can be taken with meals if you like. (If you choose to use a tincture or extract blend instead of these capsules, I use about 1/2-1 dropper full twice daily. This can also be taken with food if you like. Doesn’t really matter—just don’t skip it whether you get our capsules or a tincture or extract elsewhere!! )
Only about 30% of the parasites that you actually pass will be visible since their bodies begin to decay when they die. It can take a day or two to pass a dead parasite, so be extra sure to keep the bowels open. Do an enema if you need to, just do not allow yourself to go without having bowel movements!! Often you will not see the parasites unless you take a stick and pull the stool apart. My husband passed what he thought was a normal stool once but when he got a stick and “excavated” it was actually parasites packed together with a little stool. Gross, but if you want to know, this may be what it takes to see them. Sometimes they’re readily visible though.
Often mucous strands are passed that are “garbage” from the colon mixed with MPS. These can be mistaken for parasites. Either way, it needs to be eliminated. One of the nicknames of MPS is “gut scrubber”!
I really encourage you to check out our playlist above for a lot more information. As a final note, it is my personal belief that everyone should do at least a quarterly parasite detox. Many people are hesitant to do the parasite detox because they don't want to "see" what comes out of them. But think about it...isn't "out" better than "in"? They are eating your food, drinking your water and putting their waste inside of you!! Evict the things already!! Check our store tab for access to all of the products mentioned in this article. Happy detoxing! :-)
