I will not write an entire blog post on parasites and all of the fun stuff that I enjoy discussing when speaking on colon health. I will just urge you to do research on human parasites and how EVERYONE is affected (yes, even you!).
Below is a list of ways that parasites enter your body:
- Contaminated water and food supplies (including fruits and vegetables)
- Raw/undercooked meats
- Walking BAREFOOT outside. Yes, I said it! I do enjoy it too. Or think of the beach or pool that you walk on when on vacation. Human parasites enter in and travel through the bottom of your foot. Not just walking around, but swimming in the ocean and the pool.
- Having pets!
- Traveling overseas
- Improper hand washing or lack of
- & more! yikes!!
