I got worms

“I got worms” is one of the lines I remember most from the hilarious 1994 hit, Dumb and Dumber. I remember crying while watching this movie in the theater shortly after it was released. 

One of the reasons this scene was so funny is because I actually did have worms at the time… just like you do right now. There are actual worms in our bodies that range in size, anywhere from a small micron to several inches tall and wide. Here are some pictures of what they look like:


Parasites, a living organism that lives off another living organism, is the technical name for these intruders. They enter our body primarily through the food we eat — food that is not cooked is often the greatest culprit. Fruits, veggies, and salads, especially when fresh, often come loaded with parasites. 

Parasites in and of themselves are not bad. A good number of them die while traveling through the digestive system into the stomach. However, some survive and start to grow slowly.

Ancient cultures knew this and therefore used various herbs in order to treat/kill such life suckers. They knew parasites, being living organisms, need life and therefore steal life from their host in order to survive. With the introduction of modern medicine, the herbs used by ancient cultures became less popular, but parasitic intruders haven’t gone anywhere.

My experience tells me that this is why a lot of us feel so exhausted. Even if we exercise and eat right, we may still seem tired all the time — and this is often a strong sign of parasites. Here are a few other symptoms of parasites, taken from my friends over at Paleohack.com

  • Mood disorders

  • Strong cravings for processed and sugary foods

  • Skin ailments such as hives, rashes, weeping eczema, acne, ulcers, sores, lesions, etc.

  • Recurring yeast infections

  • Headaches

  • Anxiety and nervousness

  • Teeth grinding and drooling during sleep

  • Food allergies/food sensitivities

  • Sexual Dysfunction

  • Chronic fatigue

  • Persistent digestive problems (cramps, bloating, gas, etc.)

  • Hungry all the time

  • Sore/stiff joints

what to do

Everyone should do a cleanse at least once but preferably twice a year. Now before you tune me out, know that I have done varying parasitic cleanses since I was 10 years old and have experienced the benefits personally. 

The good news is that the most beneficial cleanse I’ve found is not as difficult as many others out on the market. Standard Process has the least complex yet most effective cleanse: you take 2 pills per day for 10 days and then take 10 days off before doing another 2 pills per day for a final 10 days.

Here is a link to the product itself and how you can buy it. Because I pay the tax and shipping for you, my blog is where you will pay the least amount of money for Standard Process products shipped straight from their warehouse. Beware of SP products via Amazon as a lot of fake product(s) produced in China come from Amazon distributers. 

“I got worms” is not a statement you want to make. If you’re tired all the time or haven’t addressed your parasites in the last 6-12 months, you might want to consider doing so. Feel free to email me at charlie@charlie.blog if you have any questions.
