During your parasite herbal protocol, you should take probiotics in the evening, like raw yogurts, kefir, and sauerkraut, as the other parasite-killing herbs destroy the good bacteria as well.
Raw pumpkin seeds
Raw pumpkin seeds are rich in a certain type of fat that can kill parasite eggs. They also contain curcurbitin which is hostile to parasites and can easily prevent infections. These seeds have been used against tapeworm infections and schistosomiasis in China for a long time. To use them, grind them first in a coffee grinder and add them to your salads and smoothies.
Cayenne pepper is a powerful antifungal and antiparasitic agent that can destroy fungi easily and improve your overall health. Your best pick against fungi is African cayenne – on the other hand, a mixture of cayenne pepper, pumpkin seeds and ginger can destroy any kind of intestinal parasite.
You should avoid sugary, tropical fruits when you are dealing with parasites, but papaya effectively destroys many parasitic worms, including most intestinal worms and tapeworm.
Their most potent parts are the seeds. According to The University of Maryland Medical Center, the combination of honey and papaya seeds clears stools of parasites.
