5 Natural Solutions for Parasites

5 Natural Solutions for Parasites

You deal with the good, the bad, and the smelly aspects of your dog as a pet parent. Although not all aspects of pet care are glamorous, the digestive health of your pet is a crucial indicator of their overall health. Diarrhea, gas, constipation, and vomiting are some of the more prominent signs and symptoms to watch for.

Other effects of digestive health concerns, such as unexplained weight loss and nutritional deficiencies, are frequently less visible and take longer to manifest. By the time these symptoms begin to appear, your dog is already suffering from major health issues.

Diatomaceous Earth

Within 7 days of being fed regularly, diatomaceous earth eliminates roundworms, whipworms, pinworms, and hookworms from the body. However, because diatomaceous earth does not kill eggs, it must be fed long enough to catch all newly hatching eggs or cycling of the worms through the lungs and back to the stomach to be most effective.

Once these parasites begin to die, it’s critical not to stop since the dead and dying parasites can release bacteria and toxins, overburdening the system and making animals sicker. The good news is that diatomaceous earth absorbs toxins, making it easier for them to detox. Diatomaceous earth is also beneficial due to its high silica content.

Pumpkin Seed

Anti-parasitic qualities in pumpkin seeds paralyze worms and prevent them from clinging to the gut wall. Pumpkin seeds are also high in zinc, which is necessary for the synthesis of digestive enzymes and the health of your digestive cells. Pumpkin seeds are also high in fiber, which helps to keep things moving smoothly in the digestive system.

Ginger is a well-known plant that aids digestion. Ginger aids digestion by assisting in the killing of parasites before they reach the intestines. This makes ginger an excellent daily supplement for preventing worms and parasites from colonizing the intestines. It also has antiprotozoal effects, making it useful against protozoa like Giardia and Coccidia. Ginger is also used to treat nausea, bloating, and constipation, as well as inflammation.

Slippery Elm

Because poop is one of the body’s main detox pathways, it’s critical for your pet to have regular, well-formed stools so that everything passes smoothly and nothing gets stuck. This involves assisting parasites in their exit. This includes parasites because it aids in the removal of parasites and poisons from the gastrointestinal tract. Mucilage and other nutrients found in slippery elm are beneficial to your pet’s health.


Thyme contains natural antibacterial properties that are beneficial against E.Coli. It’s particularly good in treating problems like SIBO (small intestine bacterial overgrowth) and promoting regular bowel motions. It also aids in the elimination of parasites.

Prevent Nutritional Deficiencies

Parasites can harm your pet’s health in a variety of ways. More visible symptoms such as gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, and other digestive problems can occur. Parasites, on the other hand, might appear without causing stomach symptoms but still cause havoc.

Parasites exploit your pet as a host, consuming all of its nutrition, resulting in nutrient insufficiency. Major weight loss, aches and pains, skin pimples or rashes, sleeping troubles, anemia, aches, weakness, allergies, fever, and other disorders can all be caused by nutrient deficiencies.
