If I mention the word “parasite” you probably imagine a horrible worm like a movie … but what if I tell you that there are several types of them and that you also have them closer than you think in your own body?
These can penetrate your body without you noticing through contaminated food or water, mosquitoes, sexual contact and even through the air you breathe through your nose or the things that touch your skin.

When we have a chronic infection in our gastrointestinal tract, like what happens caused by parasites, an inflammation is triggered that sends the message to your body that you need more cortisol, (the stress hormone) that is anti-inflammatory … but also It takes you to eat compulsively.

There are many simple and easy natural treatments that you can use along with conventional medicines to get rid of the parasites, besides, if you eat them regularly, you can make sure they do not come back to your body!
The coconut is a very effective remedy to expel all kinds of intestinal worms because it acts as a very strong antiparasitic. For this you can use both fruit and oil.
