Parasites: Symptoms, Causes, Tests, and Prevention 


Parasites are considered one of the most under-diagnosed health threats throughout the world, affecting nearly every person across all cultures. They have been found closely linked to the development of diverse illnesses that often appear too difficult to diagnose and treat. 

Here are some important facts you should definitely know about parasites. So, let’s get started.

What are parasites? 

Parasites are a group of organisms that live inside or on other species like humans known as hosts. They may range from invisible microscopic to several feet long and may cause various diseases in the human body ranging from mild to moderate to severe.   

Types of parasites 

There are three main types of parasites that cause a number of parasitic infections in the human body.

Protozoa - One-celled, microscopic organisms that can multiply very fast in the human body and may lead to serious infections. Examples include Giardia, Cryptosporidium, and Entamoeba or the ameba. 


Helminths - Multicellular organisms that are normally visible in naked eyes but cannot multiply in the human body, commonly known as worms. Examples include roundworms, flatworms, and thorny-headed worms. 

Ectoparasites - Relatively large organisms that burrow or attach into the skin, may remain a long period of time by feeding on blood or tissues for their survival. Examples may include mosquitoes, ticks, lice, mites, and fleas.  

How do they affect your health? 

While large parasites such as worms can live in the gaps between human cells, invisible microscopic protozoa can enter inside the cells like fat cells or red blood cells in the human body. 

After entering into the bloodstream and traveling throughout the body, parasites may invade various important organs and tissues including muscles, lungs, gut, brain, lymph, and liver among others, and may disrupt vital bodily functions that can lead to a variety of health issues such as reduced immune response, malnutrition, and loss of blood. 

These health conditions may result in some serious chronic diseases like SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth), leaky gut, and various autoimmune disorders such as arthritis, psoriasis, and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD).   

How do you get them? 

Parasites may lurk anywhere in your surroundings including foods, water, people, soil, pets, or surfaces that you may touch or ingest. 

Person to person transmission via the fecal-oral route, where parasites released in the feces by one person contaminate hands, water, foods, and surfaces and eventually end up being ingested by another person, is the most common form of parasite transmission. 

How do you know if you have parasites? 

In most cases, parasites do not show any signs or symptoms in the initial stages. In overgrown conditions, people may experience several persistent symptoms, such as - 

  • Stomach cramps, gas, flatulence, bloating, or pain 
  • Nausea or vomiting 
  • Weak bones
  • Skin problems
  • Fatigue
  • Excess weight
  • Dental problem
  • Unexplained diarrhoea or constipation 
  • Food sensitivities or allergies 
  • Muscle and joint inflammation and pain 
  • Mental or emotional issues such as anxiety, depression, and irritability 
  • And many more 

There are a number of ways to confirm whether you have parasites or not, such as blood tests, bio-resonance testing, stool examination, endoscopies, or colonoscopies. 

Our Blissful Bio-Resonance Reactivity Test is also one of the most effective tests for detecting your parasites. This test is a non-invasive way to detect any imbalances within your body that measure each and every factor including: 

  • Parasites
