Digestive issues caused by parasites

Parasites can be linked to virtually every type of chronic potty struggle. Here's why:

➡️ They cause constipation because they release neurotoxins that slow down the bowels so they don't get pushed out.

➡️ They can also physically block your bile duct or the valve between the large and small intestine, slowing down digestion. When these values/ducts aren't functioning properly, food isn't broken down properly. The undigested food particles feed the bacteria and yeast in the small intestine, causing an overgrowth. This causes the formation of SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), candida and leaky gut.

➡️ Parasites can inflame your digestive tract and lead to increased intestinal permeability (leaky gut). This increases your risk of food sensitivities and allergies.

➡️ Parasites can also upset the balance of microbes in your gut, which could trigger loose stools as well.

All of these issues foster nutrient deficiencies and create a breeding ground for pathogens. Bottom line - you have to be moving your bowels, ideally after every meal. If you aren't, let's chat to see how detox, diet and lifestyle changes can help!
