Intestinal Parasites
 
Standard Definition
There are two main types of intestinal parasites: helminths and protozoa. Helminths are worms with many cells. Usually, helminths cannot multiply in the human body and will eventually clear up without infecting you again. Protozoa have only one cell. They can multiply inside the human body and are the main cause of chronic intestinal parasite problems. If you suspect you may have intestinal parasites it is essential that you undergo thorough testing to identify the type for proper treatment. Please contact your healthcare practitioner.
 
 
Underlying Disruption in Function

Whilst exposure and certain conditions may increase your risk of becoming infected, a strong and healthy digestive system will increase your resistance to infection. As Louis Pasteur was believed to say - 'the problem is the terrain, not the organism', a healthy digestive system is less likely to become the home of infection.
