Where do we get parasites from?
Parasites can be picked up very easily; from our pets, raw food, imported food, in the water supply, places of poor sanitation, public toilets, restaurants, from other contaminated people and so on. It is almost inevitable that we will, at some point in our lives, pick up and ingest a parasite.
Parasites excrete toxins into our system, damage our intestinal wall as they move through the body and as a result of their presence, cause such a wide range of symptoms, that it can be difficult to make an accurate diagnosis. Not to mention that medical tests are unreliable for picking up parasites, due to their different life cycles and the vast number of species – many yet have not even been identified.
What exactly is involved?
We start you on a safe and highly effective colon cleanse to start reducing toxicity and opening up your most important detoxification pathway. During the protocol you follow a gut healing diet and have anti-parasitic foods, herbs and binders, weaved throughout. This helps to get parasites in their different life cycles. To finish, we end with a 2 day juice fast which accelerates healing in the body and purges parasites.
Are supplements included?
Supplements are additional and cost approximately £100 GBP. We only recommend the highest quality products on the market and these enable us to maximise the results you would get from a dietary protocol alone.
Is it normal to feel worse before I feel better?
Yes, this can happen and is not uncommon for individuals to suffer from detoxification reactions when embarking on a parasite cleanse. When our body tries to detoxify quicker than we’re able to release these toxins, we can experience what’s known as a healing crisis. This is a normal process which toxic individuals may encounter on their path to getting well. The symptoms can include fatigue, headaches, nausea, night sweats and more. However, if at any point you do feel unwell or symptoms persist, please consult your Doctor.
Where can I find meal inspiration?
All programmes come with a 7 day meal plan and recipe pack to help you get started. We also post recipes regularly on on our instagram page; @thewellnessrecipes. We know removing foods from the diet can be difficult, especially addictive foods like sugar which is why we try to keep you inspired along the way. We love seeing our clients enjoy the recipes so please tag us on Instagram if you enjoy them!
Can this be used as a weight loss diet?
Absolutely. Whilst we don’t promote the concept of a diet, this is one of the healthiest ways to lose weight. There is no calorie counting, point scoring or portion control. You can eat as much as you like of the foods in the programme, knowing that this will be helping your health and not hindering it. This programme comes without guilt, restriction or deprivation. Many clients found they were unable to lose weight no matter what they tried prior to the programme and only through improving the health of their gut did they finally experience weight loss.
How long will it take me to see results?
Every body is different as well as every goal, so we can't give you a specific timeframe. However most clients notice positive changes within the first week or two.
Some of the factors which influence the healing journey;
How long you’ve been experiencing symptoms
How deep rooted the underlying cause is in the body
How quickly your body responds to change
How committed you are to the programme
Types and number of pathogens you may be harbouring
The effectiveness of your detoxification pathways
The ability of your elimination organs
What's important to note is that the longer you follow the programme, the better you're likely to feel!
Are the supplements available worldwide?
We have taken clients from all over the globe through this 6 week parasite cleanse and so far, every client has been able to get hold of the supplements, herbs and foods we recommend. If you do encounter any problems, be rest assured we are here to help find you alternatives as a replacement.
How strict is the cleanse?
Everyone will be coming from different diets and backgrounds, so what is strict for one, may not be for another. Generally, if you follow the standard Western diet such as refined foods, refined sugar, alcohol and coffee, then this will be a completely different lifestyle for you. With that said, it's as strict or as flexible as you want it to be. We see our role as guiding and mentoring you, because ultimately this is your healing journey.
Does the cleanse cater for dietary preferences?
Yes, we offer dietary options for meat/fish, vegetarian and vegan lifestyles. The cleanse already takes into account food intolerances, especially the most common food groups, such as gluten, dairy and grains. A 7 day meal plan example and recipe pack is provided to help you get started.
What level of support is offered during the cleanse?
You are part of a group WhatsApp with everyone else who joined the cleanse at the same time. This means you have the support of peers who are sharing the experience with you, as well as myself, who will be on hand at all times to answer questions, queries and provide support where you need it.
Can I do the cleanse if I'm on medication?
It is always advised to check with your Doctor or main Healthcare Provider before embarking on any diet or lifestyle plan, especially where you have individual needs or requirements to consider.
If I change my mind, can I get a refund?
Unfortunately, as this isn't a product that can be returned, we're not able to offer refunds. This programme is for people who are serious about their health and feeling well again because this will get you results - but only if you commit. This is not a quick-fix or a fad diet, this is a lifestyle change and a journey of natural healing.
If you're unsure on whether the programme may be suitable for your health goals, feel free to email us and we can discuss your individual circumstances.
