YES, You Have Parasites… & They Are What’s Killing the Bees


and MUCH more…

EDIT: Thank you so much to everyone who has shared this post and e-mailed me about availability of the parasite cleansing kit I created with my Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioner. You can read our free e-book explaining more about parasites and our cleanse here. We sold out of the first two months’ stock and hand make them in limited batches, so you can sign up to be notified AS SOON as we’re back in stock here!

I’m taking a class about the emotion ‘disgust,’ and I just wrote a paper about parasites (of course!). I talked about how two things protect us from parasites and pathogens: our immune systems, and our behavioral immune systems. Studies show that people who feel they are not vulnerable to infectious disease and parasites (like those of us in first world countries) have a low “behavioral” immune system: they report less frequent hand washing and washing of fruits and vegetables than those who are aware of pathogenic threat. Prokop et al. (2014) found that self-grooming habits (which can include cleansing) are activated by the visual presence of parasites and verbal information about health risks caused by parasites.

So I wrote my paper on this: The emotion disgust is essential to human survival. In the U.S., we are not educated about parasites. My doctor told me after months of IBS, stool tests and even colonoscopies (yep – parasite migrate to other areas during those) that I had no parasites. Yet when I did an herbal cleanse I had hundreds!

Because of a lack of education, our disgust mechanism isn’t activated and our self-grooming/anti-parasite habits are at a minimum. Every indigenous culture has some form of botanical they use for parasite cleansing. But why would we, if we were never taught we had a reason to?

Another thing I brought up was luxury. Many of us (including me before I got sick) have the luxury of “modern medicine” and therefore do not need to learn to take care of ourselves via herbs and diet. We are letting our immune systems crash. We don’t care to eat vegetables as the bulk of every meal because we don’t understand the pathogenic (disgust) threat we’re facing by weakening our immune systems through poor diet. We think that at most, we’ll gain weight – or worse, develop a reversible condition like diabetes, obesity, or even heart disease.

But we don’t think of the other side: the bugs and worms we’re letting into our systems by throwing out our first defense (immunity through diet) and relying on the second (a medical system that focuses on sickness instead of health). We’re not taught that as soon as we eat refined sugar, the yeast, bacteria and worms in our intestines feast and gain the strength to burrow deeper into our tissues because our immune system is immediately depressed. If it was a pathogenic threat like parasites that elicited a disgust response instead of culturally acceptable threats, many of us would think twice before grabbing the fries and soda.

Now where did these more recently prevalent illnesses come from, like fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, MS, ALS, autism, Alzheimers, etc. that don’t have a “cause,” yet all have similar symptoms on a different scale? What about all the food allergies, eczema, rashes, depression, mental fog, IBS, Crohn’s, and cysts? Take a look at the symptoms of parasites. We ARE facing a pathogenic threat, but the parasitic/fungal/bacterial infections and symptoms that come with them vary just enough from person to person to be lumped under vague diagnoses that cost you a lot more than body cleansing would. Chronic Lyme Disease for example is constantly misdiagnosed as MS, ALS, and fibromyalgia (see documentary below):
So how did these bugs get in? First of all, we are bathing in immune-depressing chemicals. Our water is chlorinated and fluoridated. Benzene at gas pumps. Phthalates, formaldehyde and so much more at nail salons. All the chemicals involved in getting your carpet/couch cleaned (let alone the flame retardants your couch is already soaked in). Parabens and sulfates in home and body cleaning products. Immune-damaging heavy metals and adjuvants in vaccines that counteract their purpose. Carcinogens in pesticides. Petrochemicals and xenoestrogens in plastic. And did you know that glyphosate, the toxic pesticide created by Monsanto, is now found in rain, breastmilk and urine samples?

All of these things kill our FIRST and BEST defense against parasites like I keep saying: our immune system. Then, once the parasites are comfortable and grow into large adult stages, simple diet changes may not be enough. Once you already have that auto-immune disorder or diagnosis the parasites/candida may be too large or too prevalent to be handled by your immune system or diet alone although it is possible. It takes time, work and will power to fast, liver cleanse, and parasite cleanse. Many people aren’t willing to do that, or don’t believe that they have to because Western medicine didn’t say so. But if your illness is thoroughly developed, it’s hard to move forward without getting the physical blockages and parasites out first. We cut things out through surgeries because it’s easier, faster, and less difficult mentally and physically than getting our bodies clean enough to digest and sweep out the garbage from the inside out.

I’ve had some people say to me “Geez, it seems like everything causes cancer nowadays.” This is a scary truth. All of our cheap, modern conveniences have consequences and were designed to keep us sick. Why do you think the government allowed GMOs into your food and hired the former VP of Monsanto as the head of the FDA? Money. You eat the food and use the toxic products, your immune system suffers, you get a chronic illness, and you’re a pharmaceutical customer for life. The big corporations who create all of these poisonous products and chemical-laden goods are doing it for a reason. It’s expensive to make things with natural, biodegradable materials that would protect our health and earth. It’s cheap to take industrial petrochemicals and slap a pretty label on it with no concern for human consequences. So many of the chemicals used in things as simple as air fresheners are known carcinogens, yet these companies don’t care as long as you keep buying them because they’re cheap. Then, once our lifetime of chemical exposure results in a cancer diagnosis, doctors get to say that they “don’t know what caused it” or “it’s genetic.”

So yes, “everything causes cancer nowadays.” And “everything,” meaning our food, products, and polluted environment, cause all of the other conditions we’re facing. We know that there is a clear threat of these exploding chronic illnesses, but we DON’T look at what’s been there since before the dinosaurs, ready to decompose anything and everything that is sick and dying: the bugs and parasites.

I will stand by this until I’m gone: parasites are a major root of ALL sickness. It’s a law of nature. When an organism begins to decline, nature’s clean up crew begins to do it’s job to put that organism back into the earth as part of the cycle of life. So wherever there is disease, parasites will be at play. As soon as your immune system’s guard is down, the parasites that are all around you will take advantage. And if your immune system is strong, if you eat right, if you have fast-moving bowels that remove parasite eggs before they have the chance to hatch, and if you clean your body out periodically, the parasites around you won’t be a problem.

I will leave you with what prompted me to write this: remember how the bees are dying by the millions?

Hundreds of articles pinpointed pesticides as the culprit. And just like in us humans, that’s how it starts – but it’s only half the story. In a first-of-its-kind study published in the journal PLOS ONE, scientists at the University of Maryland have identified a brew of pesticides and fungicides contaminating pollen that bees collect to feed their hives.

When researchers collected pollen from hives on the east coast pollinating cranberry, watermelon and other crops and fed it to healthy bees, those bees showed a significant decline in their ability to resist infection by a parasite called Nosema ceranae. The bees exposed to chemicals like pesticides had a decline in their immune systems and now cannot fight parasites.

This is the SAME immune-depression and inability to resist parasites that WE are experiencing because of pesticides and similar chemicals in OUR food. In the study, the parasite has been implicated in Colony Collapse Disorder.

Most disturbing, bees that ate pollen contaminated with fungicides were three times as likely to be infected by the parasite. Think about how humans who eat food contaminated with GMOs, pesticides, fungicides, and heavy metals… and who use products contaminated with all the chemicals I mentioned earlier, are equally as likely to be infected by parasites.

It’s all about your immune system. And it’s all about the invaders when that immune system is damaged. What’s happening to the bees is happening to us, and I can’t keep watching it. I created my own parasite cleanse (free e-book explaining it here) because I think it’s the most effective thing I can do for other people on a large scale to fulfill my purpose and contribute to healing sickness. And I’m not writing this to promote my parasite cleanse either, because frankly I don’t care which one you do as long as you clean your body out and understand the reality we are facing. I know that parasites are killing us and I know that every child with autism is suffering because of them. Kerri Rivera has recovered 162 children who now no longer have an autism diagnosis, and a huge part of her protocol is parasite cleansing. You can read Kerri Rivera’s protocol in her book here, and watch her lecture below.

One 17-year-old, who is now verbal again, had 6 jars of worms by the time his ATEC score got down to 24.

This is real, and it’s not to scare you. It’s to inform you, because I wish someone had informed me. You are not going to immediately die, but you need to know this stuff so that you can continue research and start cleaning house. Parasite cleansing is what lights my passion so I know I’m meant to share it. You can subscribe to my e-mail notification list here for our next batch of cleansing kits, but like I said, I don’t care which cleanse you do as long as you hear this. If you can’t afford a cleanse yet start with food grade Diatomaceous Earth (food grade brand here and more info here). Don’t stop looking for answers, don’t stop fighting for your health, and don’t stop building your immune system back up by eating real food and getting the garbage out. There is a solution, but first we must understand the problem.

    Thank you for such an educational post! I am 37 and I’ve always suffered from serious bacne my all ENTIRE life! After I started moving to vegan diet and lots of juicing I lost lots of weight and got rid of heart issues, blood pressure, and many other problems but i still suffered from bacne. I thought that there must be something missing here. Must be something i am doing wrong (or not doing at all) Then my girlfriend and I got educated about parasites (from the blogs and sites such as yours) and we started experiementing with different parasite cleansing methods. As it turns out I actually did have (and still do) rope worms and lots of them! I started seeing them a lot coming out of me. And only resently my back started cleaning from bacne… This is exactly your case and I can absolutely confirm, the best way to expell them is either juice fasting or a complete fast combined with parasite cleanse and coffee enemas. This will produce the best results. I am planning one on this week again. All people out there have parasites with no exception and it doesn’t matter if one switched to a completely vegan diet they still live in us and it is a responsibility of each and every person educate themselves and start doing serious parasite cleansing!. Thank you so much for this article.

    Olivia, I love this post. I’ve done 2 weeks with the Nows Food Wormwood Complex and Psyllium husks colon cleanse. I felt more energized, ate less (In a good way), less sugary cravings, and best of all almost no acne! I passed probably hundreds of larvae and liver flukes. However no rope worms yet. I’m going to do another two weeks on the same tincture. But I was thinking of buying the MSM sulfur crystals and the Diatomaceous Earth. What is the best method? I even bought probiotics as well. Thank you.

  3. Nicole says:

    You are truly a wealth of knowledge and I very much appreciate all of your posts! All of your research makes complete sense and I am so happy to have found you online; really it is a blessing, I’ve learned so much and found something I’m passionate about through what I have learned from you. MY boyfriend and I just finished our first parasite cleanse and plan to do another (we feel great by the way). And I am even going to do an informative paper for a class so that others can be aware of this as well. Thank you so much for all of the research you do, I know that there are so many people who love your posts as much as I do. 😀

    Thanks so much for this great article which I am sharing. I just did a parasite cleanse but feel like I need to do more…which ones have you done? XO cindy

  5. Nathalia says:

    Olivia I just found you on Instagram and I’m so intrigued with this informative blog! I’m intrested in trying the colon cleanse but a bit timid in trying it. As I’m afraid of what I may see… Are the parasites dead or alive when they are released through the body ?

  6. Fifa says:

    Everything you say makes perfect sense to me and u want to do it all. I just don’t know where to start or what I need to do/purchase to get started. I have severe adrenal fatigue, hypothyroid, 0 testosterone, major weight gain over s short time. 0 energy and Insomnia Low levels of DHEA are another symptom. I would like to start with a liver cleanse and then a parasite cleanse. Please help!

  7. Dave says:

    Fifa –

    From what I have read recently, it is more beneficial to do the parasite and colon cleanse, then do the liver cleanse at a later date. Good luck!

  8. Melissaq says:

    So excited to see a post like this. I have Lyme disease, and yes, OF COURSE parasites go along with it. People like to pretend Western civilizations are immune to parasites, but that’s the silliest thing I’ve ever heard. Going to be embarking on my own parasite cleanse in the near future as part of my very comprehensive, holistic Lyme disease treatment. Never knew about the bees though, so thanks for writing this.

  9. Lee says:

    I have the same question as -Nathalia- im so scared of any bugs, so im scared id see it and scream my loudest and run, as my natural relflex to bugs. I feel like i need a cleanse badly but im scared and dont know where to start. 🙁

    Olivia I love you so much it’s unfathomable. You are sunshine on a cloudy dark day. You are everything that is beautiful. Thank you so much for everything you do.

  12. Scott Doyle says:

    Hi Olivia, I just listened to your radio interview with, and forwarded it on to my immediate family. I am a current Peace Corps Paraguay volunteer and am always looking for new things to occupy my time as life as a volunteer is very mellow and there is a lot of free time! So I really enjoyed the interview and have a question about the parasite cleanse. I am wondering, how do you actually know if you are excreting worms and other parasites during this cleanse? Are you taking samples of your fecal matter and sending them to a lab or something? I am sorry if this sounds like a stupid question, but I just can’t wrap my head around how you know you are actually excreting parasites! I really want to do the cleanse but I also want to know how many parasites, worms I am excreting also and what the process is to finding out what I am actually excreting from my body! Thanks again for all the enlightening info!

  13. Jamie Couch says:

    Hi Olivia, I have a quick question about the parasite cleanse kits you’re selling. I have everything except the supplements, is it an option to only purchase those items from you? Thanks in advance!

    • Organic Olivia says:

      Hey Jamie, I am definitely partial to ours because I know the potency and process but I believe there are some other wonderful cleanses on the market! You can probably use a different blend.

  14. Patty says:

    I would love to know how I could order a parasite cleanse kit. I have had chronic constitpation for a number of years and lately I just have this terrible bloated feeling and heaviness. I know I could probably use more fiber in my diet and eat better as well. Any help you could offer would be a relief ( literally lol 🙂 )

    thank you in advance

    How do you make sure your clean while pregnant.

  16. nicole says:

    I am just curious if the parasite cleanse if you are on chemo…bad idea? I’m stage 4 breast cancer with liver lung spleen mets doing tons of alternative and supplements on top of chemo but not sure how this would counteract with the chemo or no…any suggestions would be appreciated!

    • Organic Olivia says:

      Hey Nicole! Since you are under such heavy treatment, I would suggest holding off on any major cleanse. Are you under the advisement of a naturopath or herbalist? My #1 suggestion of all time to every single person suffering from a serious illness is Flor Essence tea to enhance your body’s natural detoxification. Look up the history of Essiac Tea being used for cancer, this is the exact same thing. Lots of love and healing to you!

  17. Julia says:

    Hi Olivia! My name is Julia, and I am constantly sick and have a terrible immune system. I love your website and am extremely intrigued to do a parasite cleanse BUT I am 16 years old. Is it still possible for me to do one? Thank you! Keep doing what you are doing, you are so inspiring.

  18. Francesca Coletto says:

    Hi Olivia! I would like to order your parasite cleanse, but first I have a question (and I know you’v e been on vacation (I follow you on IG), so I totally understand that it will take you time to catch up with everyone, but I wanted your opinion on what needs to be done first since I need to detoxify on all levels. I need to do a heavy metal detox, parasite cleanse, gallbladder, kidney, liver cleanses, etc.. I have been dealing with thyroid cancer (which I recently had a thyroidectomy and radioactive iodine which I Wish I wouldn’t have done bc it’s against my holistic beliefs and has now caused me even more problems), fibromyalgia, IBS, chronic fatigue, I have the gene for an autoimmune disease called Ankylosing Spondylitis which I may or may not have, hair, loss, weight gain, emotion problems, and more…anyway, I just read a book on natural recovery from that which lists a lot of the same stuff as you have. . not sure sure if I need to do a colonic first or what. I know digestion is the root all of illness, so my question, is which part do I start with?

  22. Monique Bryan says:

    Aloha Olivia,
    I am a yoga teacher in Hawaii and am also interested in organic farming. I volunteer on Oahu on an organic farm and am interested in alternative medicine.
