full moon phaseFull Moon Phase Parasite Protocol

The phases of the moon influence the activity of many biological organisms.  Parasites and other microorganisms are thought to increase in activity around the full moon phase.  This article will discuss what parasites are, how they impact our body and how to do a full moon parasite protocol to cleanse these organisms from our body.

Many people are unaware that there is a strong likelihood they have parasites. Parasite infections are one of the most underdiagnosed conditions in America. In fact, some experts suggest that around 90% of Americans have parasites. Parasite infections are a common problem that we see as health coaches at DrJockers.com.

Parasites are organisms that depend on a host for survival. There are three types of parasites that feast on humans: protozoa, helminths, and ectoparasites. Parasite infections cause diseases which can range from mild to life-threatening.  Parasites thrive to the detriment of the infected person. They often rob nutrients from their host. Nutrient deficiencies and gut issues are common in people with parasites.

The full moon is associated with higher parasite activity. This is because your body’s circadian rhythm responds to the moon’s cycle. Parasites are more active and reproductive coinciding with your circadian rhythm. During the full moon, we produce less melatonin and more serotonin. Parasites are more active with higher production of serotonin and less melatonin.

What are Parasites?

A parasite is an organism that lives on or in a host organism and gets its food from or at the expense of its host. There are three main classes of parasites:

    • Protozoa: These parasites are single-cell microscopic organisms that can multiply or divide within the host. They are transmitted from person to person through fecal matter, or through blood or insect bites. An example is the parasite Plasmodium which causes malaria.
    • Helminths: These are worm parasites. They are larger, multi-celled organisms that may be visible to the naked eye. Examples are roundworms, pinworms, trichina spiralis, tapeworms, and flukes. It is estimated that half of the world’s population (over 3 billon people) are infected with at least one of three worms: round worm, hookworm, and whipworm (1).
    • Ectoparasites: These live on, rather than in their hosts. Ectoparasites are also described as “blood-sucking arthopaids.” Examples are lice, bed bugs, and fleas.

Symptoms of a Parasite Infection

A parasite infection is often mistaken for other conditions. If you have plateaued in your healing journey or have persistent gut issues, these are signs that you may have a parasite infection.

Symptoms of parasite infections are widely varied. Parasites can go undetected with few symptoms or cause serious illnesses and even death. If you have a parasite infection, you may experience these symptoms:

      • Skin bumps or rashes
      • Sleep issues such as insomnia and poor sleeping habits
      • Aches and pain
      • Weight loss, increased appetite, or both
      • Abdominal pain, diarrhea, and vomiting
      • Fever
      • Weakness and feeling unwell
      • Deficiencies in nutrients, especially iron, vitamin A, vitamin B12, copper, magnesium, and zinc
      • Allergies

Some often-overlooked symptoms of parasite infections are:

      • Teeth grinding
      • Adrenal fatigue
      • Leaky gut and IBS
      • Food cravings and insatiable hunger
      • Low blood sugar
      • Brain fog, anxiety, or depression

How Do You Get Parasites?

Parasites are everywhere. We can get them from contaminated food and water (including water in lakes, ponds, and rivers), improperly cooked meat (pork is notorious for containing parasites), contaminated fruits and vegetables, walking barefoot on contaminated soil, and other places. Owning pets and traveling to third world countries can also increase your risk of parasites.

When your immune system is weak, you are more likely to contract a parasite infection. Imbalances in gut bacteria, poor diet, chronic stress, poor sleeping habits, unnecessary use of antibiotics, and other factors can weaken your immune system. This may predispose you to a parasite infection. For information on ways to boost your immune system, check out this article.

Do You Need to Worry about Parasites in the US?

Many people think parasites are only an issue in poor and developing countries or an infection they might pick up traveling to a foreign country. However, parasites infections are common in the United States and affect millions of people (2).

Interestingly, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has targeted five neglected parasite infections (NPIs) in America as priorities for public health action. The CDC considers these neglected because relatively little attention is given to them.

The five NPIs are:

      1. Trypanosoma cruzi, the parasite that causes Chagas disease: More than 300,000 people in the US are infected and more than 300 infected babies are born every year.
      2. Taenia solium, the tapeworm whose larval cysts cause cysticercosis: There are at least 1,000 hospitalizations for symptomatic cysticercosis per year in the US.
      3. Toxocara, the parasite that cause toxocariasis: At least 14% of the US population has been exposed to this parasite.
      4. Toxoplasma gondii, the parasite that causes toxoplasmosis: More than 60 million people in the US are chronically infected.
      5. Trichomonas parasite which causes trichomoniasis: This parasite affects 3.7 million people in the US and is easily treatable.

These five were chosen because of the number of people infected, the severity of the illnesses, and the ability to prevent and treat them.

Parasite Activity During the Full Moon

Parasites exhibit biological rhythms (3). Researchers continue to study how the biological rhythms of parasites are regulated and exhibited. Disrupting parasite rhythms can be helpful for eradicating parasites (4).

The full moon is associated with higher parasite activity. Your body’s circadian rhythm responds to the moon’s cycle. Parasites are more active and reproductive coinciding with your circadian rhythm.

During the full moon, we produce less melatonin and more serotonin. Melatonin is the neurotransmitter that helps you sleep and helps to control your immune system. With lower levels of melatonin, your immune system does not fend off parasites as well (5).

Serotonin, your “feel good” neurotransmitter, increases during the full moon. Like humans, parasites have receptors for serotonin (6). Parasites use serotonin to help them move. With access to more of your serotonin, they have more movement. The combination of less melatonin and more serotonin, gives parasites a heightened ability to move around and cause issues.

Supplements to Use for Parasite Cleansing

Using anti-microbial herbs can help to cleanse your body of unwanted pathogens and kill parasites. As health coaches with DrJockers.com, we use several supplements to help eliminate parasites.

At time we will rotate various herbal supplements in and out of the protocol depending upon how the individual responds.  To get started with the full moon phase parasite protocol, we use the Para 1, Para 2 and BioToxin Binder.  As you read on, you will discover why these are so effective.

Mimosa Pudica Seed

Mimosa Pudica Seed  is a powerful herb that has been used for thousands of years. It has antimicrobial, antifungal, antiviral and antiparasitic properties.

The seed of the mimosa pudica plant is a gooey, fat-soluble material that adheres to everything to support the entire intestinal tract. It is often referred to as a “gut scrubber.”

The recommended dosage of this herb is in the Para 1 product and for parasite cleansing we use two capsules, twice daily. For the full moon phase parasite protocol, you can increase the dosage for a short time. For more information on mimosa pudica seed, check out this article.

Para 2

Para 2 is a great immune system support against parasites. This product uses an Ayurvedic Indian medicine blend that combines neem, clove, vidanga, amla berry, belleric myrobalan fruit, holarrhena and chebulic myrobalan fruit.   This combination is very effective for killing parasites and their eggs.

This multi-herb formula is specifically designed for powerful immune and digestive support. This proprietary blend helps to maximize the body’s ability to boost immune system function and detoxification. The recommended dosage is two capsules, twice daily.  For the full moon phase parasite protocol, you can increase the dosage for a short time.

BioToxin Binder

It is important to use a binder with any parasite cleanse protocol. BioToxin Binder contains a special form of carbon that has greater binding ability. It also contains wild-crafted yucca root and fulvic acid.

BioToxin Binder will bind to the toxins in the gut and blood steam and help to remove them from the body. This will prevent waste from being released into the GI tract which can have a negative impact on your health. The recommended dosage is one capsule, three times daily.  For the full moon phase parasite protocol, you can increase the dosage for a short time.

Parasite Support Pack

With parasite activity increasing during the full moon, we recommend a full moon challenge. The full moon challenge protocol targets parasites during this time of increased activity and reproduction.

Start the full moon challenge protocol shortly before the full moon and complete it shortly after the full moon. You will use the three supplements discussed above: Para 1, Para 2, and BioToxin Binder.

These are the steps to complete the full moon challenge:

  1. Choose The Length of the Protocol: You can do it for 3, 5 or 7 days.  The length of the challenge is based on your individual tolerance.  If you are a highly sensitive individual, you may just want to begin with a 3-day protocol and see how you do with that.
  2. When To Begin: If you are doing the 3 day, start one day before the full moon and end one day after. If you are doing the 5-day, start 2 days before the full moon and end 2 days after. If you are doing the 7-day challenge, start 3 days before the full moon and end 3 days after.

Dosage During the Protocol

Para 1: Take 4 capsules, twice daily away from meals

Para 2: Take 4 capsules, twice daily away from meals

BioToxin Binder: Take 2 capsules, three times daily with or without food

To make it more affordable, we bundled these products into our Full Moon Parasite Pack and you can save $15 off of this by buying it in the pack price here.  In addition, you will also need to make sure you are eliminating well.   If you struggle with constipation or incomplete bowel movements than take Bowel Mover or Oxy-Powder to stimulate your colon and expel the parasites as they die.

Tips for Success During a Parasite Cleanse

Here are a number of additional things you should implement as you go through the full moon phase parasite challenge and beyond.  Living a healthy lifestyle, that incorporates daily detoxification strategies is extremely important.

Most of these are low-cost or free and only require a lifestyle change and commitment to carrying them out.  If you want to live as free of infections as possible than I urge you to adopt these principles into your lifestyle.

Eat an Anti-inflammatory Diet

Consuming a low-carbohydrate, anti-inflammatory diet throughout your parasite cleanse is important. Your body will begin to go into a state of nutritional ketosis, using ketones for energy rather than glucose. This will create energy stability, reduce your hunger and cravings, and stabilize your appetite and stress hormones.

Include healthy protein and plenty of healthy fats in your diet to help to stabilize blood sugar. Healthy protein sources include grass-fed beef, organic eggs, wild-caught salmon, and organic poultry. Avocados, coconuts, olives, and their oils are healthy fats along with grass-fed butter and ghee. By consuming protein and fat, you will be better able to tolerate the parasite cleansing period, feel more mentally alert, and have less cravings.

Combine the protein and fat with phytonutrient rich vegetables and anti-microbial herbs such as oregano, rosemary, and ginger. Sprouted pumpkin seeds, fresh pomegranate, raw garlic, and raw onions are some of the best foods for combating parasites.

Be sure to avoid sugars, grains, processed foods, alcohol and conventional meats and dairy which may fuel a parasite infection and growth.

Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting is eating foods within a certain window of time each day. It is divided into the building or feeding window when you consume foods and the fasting or cleansing window when you are going without food. Different types of intermittent fasts include simple fasts, brunch fasts, cycle fasts, strong fasts, warrior fasts, and one day food fasts.

The best way to start fasting is by doing a simple fast. With a simple fast, you consume only water for the 12 hours between dinner and breakfast. This gives the liver a chance to complete its cycle. Having a consistent pattern with intermittent fasting is the best way to develop metabolic flexibility and the energy efficiency that strengthens our body’s internal resistance.

Extended Fasting

Extended fasting is fasting for over 48 hours. There are greater benefits of extending the fast beyond intermittent fasting. With extended fasting, your body can heal and repair cells, tissues, and organs and a higher and deeper level. (13) Extended fasting is one of the most powerful healing tools you can utilize for a quick health transformation.

Other Fasting Approaches

There are other fasting approaches that include small amounts of certain calories sources. Generally, the calorie load is ¼ of a person’s normal daily calorie intake. This can be a helpful approach for someone who is not ready for more challenging fasts. Bone broth fasting, green juice fasting, fat fasting, keto fasting, and the fasting mimicking diet are examples of these fasting approaches.

Prioritize Sleep and Rest

It is normal to feel tired and sleepy during a parasite cleanse. This is a sign the body wants to focus on healing. Set aside extra time to rest and relax during the cleanse. Disconnect from life and give yourself time to take a nap, enjoy an Epsom salt bath, diffuse essential oils, pray or meditate, and just slow down.

It is also important to prioritize good sleep overnight by going to bed early, keeping your room as dark as possible and winding down well in the evenings.  Sleep is critical for the immune system and for the brain to detoxify itself.  Here is a helpful article on strategies to help improve your sleep quality.

Get Regular Movement In

It is important to avoid high intensity exercise during a parasite cleanse. High intensity exercise stimulates stress hormone. It also uses energy the body needs for cleansing. Instead, get small bouts of low intensity exercise such as 20–30 minutes of yoga, walking, or light elliptical work.

Regular movement helps the body move the lymphatic system, improves overall circulation and tissue oxygenation.  In addition, it stimulates neurotransmitters in the brain such as dopamine and serotonin that help you feel better and enjoy your life more.

Optimize Hydration Levels

Optimal hydration is key during a parasite cleanse. Fermented vegetables, filtered water, bone broths and herbal teas are all great to use while cleansing.

Fermented beverages provide organic acids, probiotics, potassium, and enzymes. Organic acids and probiotics help to balance your intestinal microflora. Potassium helps to flush toxins from the cells and through the elimination channels, and enzymes assist the body in healing. Coconut water kefir, kombucha, apple cider vinegar drinks, water kefir, and fermented whey are fermented vegetables that are great to include while you are cleansing parasites.

For water, aim to drink at least half of your body weight in ounces per day. It is great to use reverse osmosis water with added minerals (or add ¼ tsp of pink salt per gallon). Filtering chlorine, fluoride, heavy metals, and pharmaceutical drugs from your water with a high-quality filter is critical.

Herbal teas are another option for hydration. They provide immune-stimulating superfood herbs that contain antioxidants and phytonutrients. This clean energy source facilitates deeper cleansing and has detoxifying properties.

full moon

Consider Doing Enemas

Enemas are extremely effective at ridding the body of putrefied waste that is encased on the colon walls. There are different types of enemas, including water enemas, probiotic enemas, wheatgrass juice enemas, or organic coffee enemas.

Coffee enemas stimulate the liver to produce greater amounts of the master antioxidant glutathione. This can accelerate your results on a parasite cleanse.

full moon

Daily Bowel Movements

Daily bowel movements are important during a parasite cleanse. You want to eliminate the parasites as they are killed or your symptoms may worsen. When you are not eliminating daily, waste sits or moves slowly through your digestive tract. This waste is fermented by bacteria and becomes a breeding ground for bad microbes. These microbes also release toxins that create inflammation throughout the body.

A fantastic supplement for natural, gentle relief from constipation is Bowel Mover. This product is specifically designed to promote digestive and detoxification support without causing cramping or dependency.  You can also consider using Oxy Powder which is a non-herbal way of cleansing and oxygenating your colon.

Dry Brushing, Saunas, and Sunbathing

Supporting detoxification during parasite cleansing is very important. Dry brushing, saunas, and sunbathing are great for detoxification.

For dry brushing, brush your skin in a circular manner beginning with your extremities and moving towards your torso and heart. It is best to do this before your shower using a natural bristle brush, and following brushing with a warm shower. Dry brushing has many health benefits such as cleansing the lymphatic system, removing dead skin layers, improving the nervous system, and removing excess fluid from the body.

Spending time in an infrared sauna is a great way to stimulate the release of toxins. Sunbathing also enhances immunity and stimulates deeper cellular cleansing.

Spending time in the sun will charge your system with biophotons.  It will also help to activate mitochondrial melatonin levels for mitochondrial protection and boost your vitamin D levels for immune and hormone balance.

Testing for Parasites

Due to the prevalence of parasites, it is prudent to do testing to determine whether you are infected and the type of parasite infection. Stool testing is the best way to test for parasites. There are two tests we use at DrJockers.com.

1.   GI-MAP™ DNA Stool Analysis

The GI-MAP is the most thorough stool test on the market. It is a comprehensive stool analysis that identifies the presence of multiple pathogenic microorganisms. Not only will the GI-MAP detect parasites (both protozoa and worms), it also shows other Candida, fungi, and opportunistic bacteria.

The GI-MAP is the only FDA-approved DNA test for gastrointestinal microbes and pathogens available. The GI Map also tests for H. pylori, viral pathogens, levels of normal bacteria, potential autoimmune triggers, and viruses, including cytomegalovirus and Epstein Barr virus. The GI Map reveals the overall health of your gut with digestive, gastrointestinal, Secretory and Anti-gliadin IgA (immune response), and calprotectin (inflammation) markers.

Another great thing about the GI Map is that the test gives actionable biomarkers. The GI Map looks at all the major factors that can influence the health of the gut and what compounds will work best to eliminate the various pathogens. For more information on the GI Map and a sample report, you can look here.

2.   Digestive Health Panel

The Digestive Health panel is from the company Doctors Data.  It tests for parasites, 48 possible yeast and fungal species, pathogenic and beneficial bacteria. It also has digestion and absorption markers, inflammatory markers, intestinal immune function, inflammation markers, and overall intestinal health markers.

The Digestive Health Panel reveals yeast susceptibility to various antimicrobials. This information allows your practitioner to devise an effective treatment plan for eliminating the yeast. To order the Digestive Health Panel, go here.  You can check out the sample copy of this test here

Parasite infections affect billions of people worldwide. Parasites are organisms that depend on a host for survival. They infect humans and cause many health issues.

The full moon is associated with higher parasite activity. During the full moon, we produce less melatonin and more serotonin. Parasites are more active with higher production of serotonin and less melatonin.

The days before, during, and after the full moon are a great time to increase your parasite cleansing protocol. By implementing a full moon parasite challenge, you can target parasites while their activity and reproduction is increased.

Eating an anti-inflammatory, low-carbohydrate diet, hydrating optimally, and implementing fasting strategies can be very helpful during a parasite cleanse. Rest and low intensity exercise, along with supporting daily elimination and detoxification pathways are also key while implementing a parasite cleanse.

If you are interested in getting the products for the full moon parasite protocol than we have a special bundle that allows you to save $15 off the regular pricing.   If you struggle with constipation or incomplete bowel movements than take Bowel Mover or Oxy-Powder to stimulate your colon and expel the parasites as they die.

  1. Trying this out next month! Question-What would a beginner protocol for a child look like? They are between ages 4-10? Or is that even safe for the younger ones??

  2. This article is possibly a life saver. Today is day 3 of my first parasite cleanse doing the beginners 3-day Para1 Full Moon Protocol. First day took my Para1 + Green black walnut wormwood complex (I’d bought it already), bitter strong but powerful. Day two, I woke up and used the bathroom. Grabbed a disposable chopstick and began separating the stool. I was blown away. There were so many worms or pieces of worms, including tapeworm/s, 12 inches. There were thinner shorter ones too. I was really trying to be brave. Better out than it. That day I also experienced weird sharp pains in various body areas, and itchiness too (may be that was psychosomatic). I drank dandelion tea to assist my liver. Good idea. At bedtime I took 2 activated charcoal caps, which I had also bought already to help remove the toxins from the die off. Today, day 3, I woke up and went to the loo. To my shock even more came out; bigger + longer. One had to be about 20 inches, and there were more. Some were much thicker and chunky (disgusting freaky), not smooth but bumpy. Feels like the movie Alien. Then 5 hours later I had to go again, and more are still being expelled. I feel pretty good thanks to the activated charcoal, keeping well hydrated clean water, eating keto no sugars grains etc, and intermittent fasting for about 18-20 hrs daily. Am going to keep going, 2 more days at least, depending on how successful the eviction of these squatters is. Going to also take epsom baths also, starting today. So far so good. It’s gross, no question. But these things have to be killed, and their eggs, so it makes sense you have to do this cyclically to get the worms + eggs. I am so looking forward to a thorough house cleaning of these critters. Then doing maintenance 1-2x year to keep them out. Thank you Dr Jockers!!

      1. Hi Dr. Jockers,

        I’ve taken Para1 before at the suggestion of my FMP. He said the long 12 inch rope I thought I was seeing was actually biofilm. Would you agree?

        Also, is this protocol also effective against chronic EBV in any way?


  3. Excellent article! I’m wondering if this protocol would help those who experience tapeworms in there head, brain, eyes and face? (or just intestines) I know many who suffer and would love to share any helpful info.

    Thank you so much Dr. Jockers

  4. I have the para 1 para 2 and biotoxin binder. not sure after reading everything, how many I should be taking a day for how long. I’m guessing the 3 containers are enough for 2 months of cleanses? cheers, Sam.

    1. Hey Sam, The protocol length should only last 3-7 days based on your tolerance. Read “How to do the Full Moon Challenge” section on this page to help guide you based on your need.

  5. I received my order and have been on the full moon parasite challenge beginner protocol for three days. It did help with my diarrhea, general achy feeling all over, anxiety and depressed mood. I was surprised how well I felt the first two days. Today I had my first bowel movements since starting. I have also been following an anti inflammatory diet, resting but also getting in movement, hydrating, dry brushing, and Epsom salt baths.

    I have been struggling with parasites for over a year now and losing a lot of weight. I am a small person and cannot afford to lose anymore. Stool tests revealed dientamoeba fragilis trophozoites – too small to see.
    At one point in your instructions you state the recommended dosage is two capsules, twice daily for Para1 and Para2, and one capsule, three times daily for the BioToxin Binder (which is half of the full moon protocol recommendation). Should I be taking these lower dosages between full moons as long as I have symptoms? Do you take it continually for the whole month or just at the full moon phase?
    How long can you or should you continually take it?
    Should I take something if the bowel movements don’t become more regular? Is there a product you would recommend that I could find locally in a pharmacy ? I’m in the cleanse protocol right now and I can’t wait for a shipment of your Bowel Mover or Oxy Powder.
    Are there some carbs I can eat to keep on weight – oatmeal maybe?? The high protein, anti inflammatory diet is not helping my weight.

    1. Yes I would recommend taking the lower dosages outside of the full moon as that will help. You are safe to do this for 6 months in a row.

      For carbs, you can do white rice in a soup or stew as that usually works well. For bowel movements, I would increase your intake of magnesium citrate or magnesium oxide and that will help flush you. You can also do 1 tsp of salt in 2-4 oz of water and chug that and then drink an 8 oz glass of water right after and it will flush you out.

  6. Hello, would these supplements work for a 6 year old with Dientaomeba Fragilis? If not, what would be your recommendation?

      1. I am at a point of desperation, the parasites have totally destroyed her immune system and she is depleted of nutrients. If the herbs in the pills are bitter or have a strong taste, I won’t be able to get her to take them if I get the pills. Do you have any suggestions? D Fragilis is not treated with antibiotics in Australia, where we are and I have tried everything I could think of, Colloidal silver, dietomacious earth, vit c, nothing works. She is so pale and miserable. All anti parastic pills seem to be huge and adults struggle to take them, let alone kids. Do you have any suggestions? I am desperate.

        1. I have used 1/2 capsule mimosa pudica for 4 yr old put in ice cream and tolerated well, found on their website : microbe formulas

        2. You need to be gentle with the gut. Buckwheat, introduce alkaline foods. Be on an anti-mold diet, candida diet, low fodmap diet

  7. Hi
    Just a suggestion because this is a useful site and we all know that autistic children are full of parasites and heavy metals. Please, could you consider a protocol for children? Something to help us?

    1. Hey Lona, yes we like to use the Mito ATP – 2 caps – 2x daily with meals, the Bioactive Carbon Minerals – 4 drops, 2x daily and the Para 3 – 4 drops, 2x daily. All these should be 30 mins or so away from meals.

      You can find the products here and please use the coupon code Jockers10 to save 10% on them.


  8. Doing 3 day cleanse started today. What do u do after the 3rd day, do u continue the same protocal or just stop.

  9. Dear Dr Jockers, this article is really interesting and I am planning this protocol soon. But I am worried. I have done a Castor oil detox 4 months ago without success (my gut had the reverse reaction – closing down – had a colon cleasing after). So, I tried the Oxy-Powder you recommand for a smoother stimulation but again, I just had water flush but no real bowel movements. Could it be possible that the parasites are so strong that it shut down the peristalsis ? Or what would be your hypothesis on this ? Thank you very much, really appreciating the values of all your articles ! Have a great day, David

  10. Sir , my son has just turned 4and has mild to moderate autism and is non verbal . He is into the habit of licking every other thing he touches . Plzz advice me should I go fr full moon stool test. Wll it help him in developing speech . He is under biomedical since last 9mnths

    1. So sorry to hear this. We are unable to give medical advice here and I would encourage you to discuss this with your functional health practitioner. Blessings to you!

    2. Megha, my son is 30 non verbal and licks everything as well but he didn’t start till much later in life. He is in full failure to thrive after several 3-4 hr dental sedations and has lost over a 100lbs. No blood test, stool test or Dr visit can tell me why but parasites can be a very real issue especially if your so. has mood changes during a full moon. I think my son has SIBO but I’m going to test for parasites again. Hopefully something on this site will help. Allopathic and alternative medicine has failed us on both accounts. Fingers cross Dr Jockers has something that will help.

  11. I had started a protocol with a different brand before I found this .
    I would like to use this one, but my current one is 2 weeks long.
    How long should I wait before starting this brand. I don;t want to just start using this brand too soon.

  12. Hi, does this work for pinworms and roundworms, specifically anisakis worm from eating contaminated salmon sashimi? I purchased paraguard wormwood drops (I think 30 drops per day?) but also going to get the supplements here for the upcoming full moon.

  13. The general advice in your article is very good. But what do you do if your parasite load is causing severe chronic constipation? Telling someone to merely “open up detox and elimination pathways” doesn’t help. I’ve been already taking laxatives. I’m on a new herbal dewormer combo; and I still have to take laxatives at least every other day! I eat enough fiber. I drink lots of water. I get exercise. Metamucil never helped…because the parasites are a causative agent in the constipation. It’s a no-win situation!!!

  14. Will this parasite cleanse kill an ectoparasite? Its not lice, scabies, demodex, or lice. They feel like worms and are on my scalp and now my eyebrows and face, they sting. I rarely feel movement, but on our last full moon, I felt like I was in a sci-fi movie. It started with these brown almond shaped “things” surfacing from under my scalp. They are about three size of an almond as well. Now they are throughout my body, I don’t know how deep they go, but I feel them under my skin. They are abundant in my abdomen. This stated over a year and a half ago and no one believes that I feel worms on my scalp, not my GP, 3 dermatologists and my integrative doctor. Not one of them has even offered to stool test me, knowing I have animals and have worked in veterinary medicine for years, although I haven’t been able to work since 2019 due to a back injury. I don’t know if they are in my gut too, but recently my brain fog is at its highest, I’ve been having reflux and nausea and im lucky to have a bowel movement every 10 days or so. One of the dermatologists did biopsies and so did my GP, nothing showed. Whatever it is it knows my circadian rhythm, bedtime is when I feel some moment and the almond shaped eggs, as I call them, start coming either vertically or horizontally through my scalp. I don’t know what to do anymore, so wondering if your products will also kill parasites living on the skin. Thankyou in advance for your response.


  16. Hello,
    I think some of the ingredients in Formula 1 would not be advisable in my current situation. I’m going to check with my doctor. If he advises against Formula 1, is it fine for me to do just the mimosa pudica seed and the biotox?
    Thank you!!

  17. Hello,

    I’d appreciate the info on how to access the GI Map Stool Analysis test from Canada. Also, are there any Candida cleansing programs that provide long term results? The 15 days kit CandidaGone only provide a temporary result to the point that even eating fruits throws me back in to pre-cleansing state.

    Thank you for your response in advance.

    1. It’s better to add healthy bacteria from a variety of raw fermented foods like kimchi, sauerkraut, dill pickles Natto etc to crowd out the candida overgrowth instead of trying to kill it. This way you’re not killing important “good” bacteria 😉

  18. When I was 4, my family was homeless, so my parents pitched a tent in the woods in Montana. My parents had us drinking the river water. I remember vomiting a lot, and my baby brother, about 9 months, ended up in the hospital with vomiting and diarrhea. Hospital staff informed my parents that our “campsite” was about a mile downriver from a cattle farm, and the barns were sprayed out, and the runoff ended up in the river. Over 45 years have passed, but I am wondering if I still might have parasites? Also, my 6 year old daughter ate chicken poop once as a baby. She now struggles with chronic constipation and teeth grinding. Might she have parasites?

  19. Hello. Can this protocol be used for children age 12 (almost 13) and aged 16? If not, do you have something else that can be used?

    Thank you in advance.

  21. Hi, Recently began cleansing after a steady diet of raw seafood and under cooked beef. Amazed at the results and how little this topic is covered in allopathic medicine. I’m going to continue with the protocol I’ve been using as it has brought significant results. I found your site based on moon cycles and will incorporate this into my regime. Thank you for the extensive amount of information and at some point I hope to try your product.

  22. Hi, Thank you so much for this article! How can I receive specific help on learning what I am eliminating? During the last four full moons, I have eliminated about 140-150 things that don’t look like any of the worms you show in this article. They are flat, brown, irregular and some look like a lattice; some are about 1/4 to 1/2 inch thick. The August ones weighed a total of 11 ounces. Are they a biofilm? They only show up when I am doing the cleanse, never when I am off of it. When I am off the cleanses, I take a toxin binder. Every single stool I have still contains fine strings, most about one inch or so in length, but nothing big.

  23. Reading the comments made me feel much less alone in this crazy dilemma I find myself in! Thank you! I experienced severe food poisoning from undercooked and/or contaminated pork. Since then I’ve put on a crazy 5-6lbs of belly fat that feels like it just came out of no where. I tend to naturally intermittent fast, I’m not a snack eater, nor sweets or such, but it’s like anything even the slightest bit of food seems to just turn to this weird jelly fat on me. I feel sluggish, brain fog, teeth grinding all day, and I’m certain I was fighting pin worms for about 2 months (the most disgusting feeling ever!) I’ve felt very bothered with candida/BV and just overall gross. I’ve always been healthy and healthy weight and I feel wildly out of control with my weight and mood and lethargy. No regular doctors seem to want to take me seriously. I will try this protocol. Praying to feel back to myself!

  24. Thank you posting this article about parasites. I have been sheets naturopath doctor and she did a stool test and said I tested positive for a tapeworm called dipylidium. She had me take a prescription 660 mg of Biltricide. I had to take a pill in the morning and one in the evening for 2 days then wait 2 weeks and repeat this. I did this for 4 weeks. She also has me taking para 1 & 2. I take 2 of the para 1 & 1 of the para 2 on an empty stomach in the am and again in the evening. I fell like I’m not having much luck at getting rid of these awful tapeworms. Do you have any advice or products that you sell to help me get rid of these nasty tapeworms? Also do you know if tapeworms can cause excessive throat clearing, coughing, excess mucus, loose stools and having to go to the bathroom a lot almost like ibs. This is what I’m dealing with everyday. Not sure if theses tapeworms can cause all of these symptoms, what is your opinion on these symptoms. Any advice or things that I can purchase from you to get help I’m willing to do. Thank you so much I am desperate at this time.

  25. HI, Dr. Jocker,

    Thanks for putting together this information. I have a question for you regarding the parasite protocols. How effective are they at completely eliminating the parasites ? My concern is that if I ONLY disturb the parasites in their current environment; bladder, bowels, liver.. that they will migrate to other more hard to reach and critical organs ; pancreas, brain. Could you please update me on the most comprehensive method of elimination and how to test for it ?

    Much appreciated,
