  3. Parasites are nocturnal, so they are active at night. So two symptoms to look out for are rectal itching at night and grinding your teeth because one of the ways our body responds to stress at night is through grinding.

  4. Coffee enemas are a great detox support during a parasite cleanse. They support your liver, gallbladder, and literally empty out your entire colon (including pathogens), while enhancing your immune system with glutathione.
