Various Natural Remedies for Intestinal Parasites

Most people are infected with at least one internal parasite. Unfortunately, most are undiagnosed and even do not know that they are carrying one or more parasites in their bodies. Humans contract parasites in several ways, including eating uncooked foods like meat and fish, walking barefooted, and sharing a bed with a pet carrying them. Although the mention of parasites makes people think of the obvious ones like tapeworms, roundworms, and others, many others are microscopic like amoeba, spirochetes, and flukes.

Due to the common infection with parasites, it is critical to use parasite cleansing supplements like zoiben, which also helps with biofilms infections and other benefits. The supplement is constituted of six different essential oils and berberine, the bitter herb extract. These ingredients are all useful for eliminating parasites but are not toxic to humans.
