99% Tested Positive

It is not uncommon for people to assume that unwanted organisms are only an issue in third world countries but not here in our world of Starbucks, Wifi and Purell. However, roughly 85% of the world’s population has some type of unwanted organism, such as parasites, yeast or bacteria. And the truth is, US citizens are no more immune to these issues than anyone else in the world. In our clinical experience, 99% of the individuals tested had at least one, and sometimes as many as five, different unwanted organisms.

 According to World Health Organization guidelines,  a routine screening for parasites for school age children is highly recommended when the prevalence in the community exceeds 50%. It is good common sense that all children should be evaluated for unwanted organisms if they have one or more common risk factors.  When liver congestion and unwanted organisms coincide, a wide range of imbalances in the body may ensue.

Signs of Liver Congestion & Unwanted Organisms

  •  Digestive Issues
  • Sleep Disturbances
  • Obsessive Thoughts
  • Compulsive Behaviors
  • Low Energy Levels
  • Focus Issues
  • Anger Outbursts
  • Food Cravings
  • Poor Concentration
  • Skin Irritations
  • Bowel Issues
  • Itchy Rectum
  • Teeth Grinding 

 Liver Congestion with Unwanted Organisms

The combination of a congested liver and unwanted organisms typically manifests itself with a slow progression of “I don’t feel quite like myself” to uncharacteristic or unusual outbursts of anger or irritation. These issues are often thought or diagnosed to be something other than an imbalance of parasites, yeast or bacteria and the attempts to treat the situation can be made worse by mood enhancing pharmaceutical drugs or an increase in alcohol or drug use. While the unresolved anger or negative moods set in, these other attempts to correct the issue merely prolong and enhance the effects by compromising and challenging the liver function even further. In some cultures, they use the term “liverish” to describe someone who is short tempered or easy to anger. Whether this is due to a congested liver or alcohol abuse, the liver can, and does, play a pivotal role in emotions, temperament, and mood. 

Common signs of imbalances in the GI tract are cravings for sugar or a ‘sweet tooth’, or craving for carbohydrates such as potato chips and longing for beer or wine. The key factor here is all of these signals have the common theme of sugar whether it comes directly from a sweet, or a starch, or through alcohol. When we suffer from fatigue, brain fog, head pain, lack of focus, indigestion, skin issues, or body odor, these can all be symptoms of an unhealthy GI tract.

Unfortunately, our modern lifestyle contributes to these issues as well. We are seeing far more gluten and dairy sensitivities than in years past. In conjunction with increased caffeine intake, the predominance of poor quality processed food and the stress of day to day living, our GI tracts are being pushed to the limit often results in many individuals suffering from unhealthy bowel function.  

With These Habits or Issues, You Are a Good Host for Unwanted Organisms

Food sensitivities, sluggish bowels, amalgam fillings in the teeth, high caffeine intake, poor food quality, unhealthy food choices, impacted stool, frequent meals at restaurants, lack of proper hygiene, stress while eating, anxious feelings, insufficient chewing of food, or enzyme deficiencies contribute to acidifying the tissues, making us a good host for these unwanted organisms. The more the abdomen protrudes the greater the chance of unwanted organisms. You may keep your body somewhat in balance with supplements, however, for optimal health and longevity addressing these issues with an unwanted organism cleanse is recommended.

How to Get Rid of Unwanted Organisms

We now know it is common for an imbalance of yeast, bacteria and and parasites to coexist in the body, and this unholy trifecta can lead to a congested liver. The question is then-How do we address these issues?

Below we share our clinical protocol for supporting the safe and effective removal of unwanted organisms, liver rejuvenation, and healthy histamine support. The main formula for this protocol, Artemisia & Clove™, is a broad spectrum herbal supplement used to safely remove unwanted organisms. This formula is carefully buffered for long term use with sensitive digestive tracts, while still maintaining the full strength of action against unwanted organisms.  It is proven effective against parasites, yeast and bacteria; as shown in before and after stool tests below with the Parasitology Center, Inc. Dr. O. Amin MD, Director.
