Parasites can live inside your body and rob you of essential nutrients, sapping your energy. Luckily, there are key foods that kill parasites while also boosting your overall health.

Parasites are a class of living organisms that feed off nutrients and energy from their hosts. They can live in organs like your liver, and also dwell in the digestive tract.

Some types of bacteria and parasites are benign when their numbers are controlled and balanced by other good bacteria in our bodies. However, when these parasites start to multiply and cause inflammation and other side effects, they result in what is considered a parasite infection.

The Most Popular Types of Parasite Infections are:


These flatworms can be ingested by eating contaminated raw foods like fish, crabs, or crayfish. The most common type of fluke is the liver fluke, which infects your liver and can cause liver, gallbladder, and bile duct disease if left untreated.


Tapeworms can also be contracted from contaminated raw foods and water, but also from infected pets. They can live in your digestive tract, but also migrate to other areas of your body.


Pinworms are relatively harmless and are common in children. They are easily contracted by coming into contact with their eggs from contaminated sources such as bedding or pets and then touching your mouth.


Giardia is a parasite that infects your small intestine and is often contracted by drinking contaminated water, eating contaminated food, and touching or other personal contact with contaminated substances.


Wuchereria is a parasitic worm that can infect your immune system. While it is most commonly found in third world countries, it is spread by mosquitoes, making it easy to contract in the outdoors.

What Causes Parasites?

If you’ve ever been told not to drink the water in certain countries, it’s because of potential parasite contamination. However, parasite infections aren’t limited to developing countries.

In fact, they are more prevalent in our environment than we may think, especially if we have pets. The reason for this is our animals are in direct contact with dirt and other living areas for parasites, where they can more easily pick up them up and pass them on to us.

Also, parasites and their larvae are often so small our naked eye can’t see them. Therefore, they can easily make their way into our bodies through our foods and touching our faces with our hands. Some parasites can even infect us through mosquitoes or other insects.

While some parasite infections have little to no symptoms, others have a more severe impact. Some common symptoms of parasites are:

If you suspect you have a parasite, consult your doctor immediately so they can run a blood test, a fecal exam, or even take x-rays or perform an endoscopy if necessary.

Why You Want to Treat Parasites ASAP

Not only can some parasites cause disease, but they can also cause organ damage, and even suppress certain processes of our immune system in order to survive. In addition, they can rob our bodies of essential nutrients, which can cause a lack of energy and lower our immune system further.

This is why it’s important to talk to your doctor if you’re concerned about a possible infection, along with trying natural remedies and checking out the food list below.

10 Foods that Naturally Kill Parasites in Humans

Several foods can help win the fight against parasites. Even if you don’t have an infection or symptoms, the compounds in these foods can help kill any would-be invaders and even boost your immunity.

1. Garlic

Garlic is widely known for its antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, and studies show that it can help kill parasites, especially specific types called nematodes. One study, in particular, found that crushed garlic was 91.24% effective at killing the infection in naturally infected mice.

For best results, chop up garlic and let it sit for several minutes so it can release its beneficial, microbe-fighting compounds.Then, consume it raw by mixing it into a salsa or salad dressing, or spreading on Paleo-friendly toast.

2. Onions

People have used onions as a traditional remedy for parasites for hundreds of years. Onions contain various sulfur metabolites that help inhibit compounds inside parasites necessary for its survival.

For best results, eat garlic and onions together for a synergistic effect.

3. Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds contain compounds that are particularly effective against tapeworms and nematodes. They help paralyze parasites, which prevents them from holding on to the walls of your digestive tract so they can be passed through your stool.

In one study done on mice, pumpkin seed extract showed to inhibit the growth of other strains of nematode parasites.

Add a dash of pumpkin seeds to your daily salad, or have a handful as a snack.

4. Papaya Seeds

Papaya seeds can help clear intestinal parasites. One study found that combining papaya seeds with honey had a parasite clearing rate of between 71.4% and 100% in Nigerian children infected with intestinal parasites.

Don’t discard the seeds when you eat papaya and be sure to drizzle a little honey on top for good measure.

5. Carrots

While there are no direct studies linking carrot consumption and parasites, there are studies that show that low levels of vitamin A and beta-carotene levels are associated with parasite infections in cattle.

There’s no harm in adding more fresh veggies to your diet, so roast them as a hearty dinner side or toss shredded carrots into your salads to ensure you’re getting plenty of vitamin A and beta-carotene.

6. Coconut

As if you needed another reason to indulge in coconut, it’s also effective at fighting parasites. Specifically, studies show that coconut’s medium-chain-fatty acids are able to kill the intestinal parasite Giardia, which is responsible for causing diarrhea.

Sauté your veggies and meats in coconut oil, add it to your coffee or blend it into your favorite smoothie.

7. Sunflower Seeds

Sunflower seeds are naturally rich in vitamin E, and research finds that vitamin E can help improve immune resistance to nematode infection in livestock. This means that vitamin E-rich foods like sunflower seeds could help fight parasite infections by boosting your immunity.

Enjoy a handful of sunflower seeds as a healthy snack.

8. Fermented Foods

Fermented foods not only help keep your digestion running smoothly due to their high content of probiotics, but they can also help fight parasites.

Studies show the probiotics present in fermented foods help block parasites and microbes from getting certain nutrients they need to survive while also boosting your natural immunity against them.

Eat a daily serving fermented foods like coconut kefir, sauerkrautkimchi, or non-dairy yogurt.

9. Berries

Berries are rich in a class of antioxidants called polyphenols. Studies show these are able to inhibit the growth and spread of the intestinal parasite Giardia. Researchers believe this effect could also be due to the presence of a compound called ellagitannin found in berries.

Add a cup of strawberries, blueberries, or blackberries to your daily regime.

10. Raw Honey

Honey contains antimicrobial and antibacterial properties that can help fight pathogens. In addition, raw honey provides an abundance of antioxidant compounds that can boost your natural immunity, which can help keep parasites at bay.

For best results, drizzle over papaya seeds, coconut yogurt, and/or pumpkin and sunflower seeds.

Revealing Here the 9 Herbs That Naturally Kill Parasites

There are many powerful herbs that are used to treat parasite infections. But before you start experimenting with remedies, read this to learn the best way to naturally kill parasites

Before we dive in, know that it is not advised to take any herbs unless you’ve been working with a professional or, even better, a functional medicine doctor with experience in parasitic infections.

It’s ideal if you have been practicing a holistic lifestyle for some time. That is because the first and most critical step for healing an infection is getting your immune system up and functioning optimally.

From there, one of the very last steps is going to be experimenting with herbs. To help this process, if you suspect you have an infection or are running a routine yearly cleanse, here are some of the best natural food and herbal remedies to naturally kill parasites.

The Best Herbs & Their Benefits

Fresh Garlic

This might come as a surprise, but do not underestimate this common household herb. It is actually among the most effective herbs for ridding the body of any unwanted organisms. Garlic is able to slow and kill over 60 types of fungus and 20 types of bacteria, as well as some of the most potent viruses.

Garlic has a history of killing parasites and controlling secondary fungal infections. It also detoxifies while gently stimulating elimination, and has antioxidant properties to protect against oxidation caused by parasite toxins.

The active components in garlic that kill parasites are allicin and ajoene. These compounds can kill amoebas including one-cell varieties, as well as pinworms and hookworms.

Allicin is not present in garlic in its natural state. When garlic is chopped or otherwise damaged, the enzyme alliinase acts on the chemical alliin, converting it into allicin, the active component contributing to its success for killing parasites.

To get the most out of garlic, be sure to use it crushed or juiced. Start off with 1 clove and work your way up to as many as you can stomach. 

Cucumber Seeds

Cucumber seeds have been used as an all-natural treatment to remove tapeworms within the digestive tract. The powder of cucumber seeds can be used to treat tapeworms but also consumed even if you do not have a parasite, as a preventative measure.

That is because cucumbers are of course are also a vegetable. They are effective due to enzymes within the cucumber and seeds that kill tapeworms. Look for heirloom cucumber seeds, grind into a powder and add 1 tsp. to a smoothie daily during your cleanse.


Sugary, tropical fruit is typically not advised when dealing with parasites. However, this particular fruit has a strong ability to destroy many parasitic worms, including most intestinal worms and tapeworm. The most powerful part of the fruit is actually the seed.

The University of Maryland Medical Center advises a mixture of honey and papaya seeds, which has been found to clear stools of parasites. If you are going to consume the fruit for its benefits, it is best to remove the skin and ferment in apple cider vinegar for one day.

You will want to eat eight ounces of the cultured papaya and drink 2 ounces of the brine for 4 days. When it comes to papaya, the most powerful part of the fruit is actually the seed.

Chaudhary MD, a neurologist and practitioner of Ayurveda, suggests this papaya smoothie recipe: Take the seeds from an average-sized papaya and grind them in a coffee grinder. Next, add a tablespoon of organic virgin coconut oil. Then add about a cup of coconut milk and the rest of the papaya; finally, blend until smooth. Drink the smoothie each morning for at least 7 consecutive days. 


Cloves contains the most powerful germicidal agent in the herbal kingdom, known as eugenol. It also contains caryophyllene, which is a powerful antimicrobial agent. These components travel through the bloodstream, killing microscopic parasites and parasitic larvae and eggs.

Cloves are tremendously effective in killing malaria, tuberculosis, cholera, scabies and other parasites, viruses, bacteria and fungi, including Candida. Cloves also destroy all species of Shigella, Staphylococcus, and Streptococcus. It is best consumed with black walnut hulls and wormwood. 

Raw Pumpkin Seeds

These are able to kill eggs, and they contain a natural fat that is toxic to parasite eggs. Curcurbitin in pumpkin seeds has shown anti-parasitic activity, since it has the ability to paralyze worms so they drop off the intestinal walls.

Chinese scientists used pumpkin seeds to treat acute schistosomiasis and tapeworm infestations. Many parasite formulas contain pumpkin seed, but it doesn’t do much in just a few capsules. You need half a cup at a time to really work. Grind in coffee grinder and add to salads or smoothies. 


This is perhaps one of the most powerful herbs and is helpful for just about everything. It boasts powerful properties. it is an anticancer, anti-inflammatory, wound-healing, worm-expelling, and an overall body purifier.

This is a very safe herb to consume regularly for maintaining health as well as to use medicinally. Pair with coconut oil and black pepper for improved absorption. 


A family member to turmeric, ginger has many similar qualities. It also increases circulation and helps all digestive issues. It is particularly good for gas and nausea associated with parasite die-off.

It also improves stomach acid production, which kills parasites and protects us from getting infected in the first place. Fresh ginger is better for eliminating mucus, while ground ginger is better for warming the digestive system. Take both. 


This hot pepper is a powerful anti-fungal. The best cayenne has the ability to destroy fungus, mold & parasites on contact! It increases circulation and health, and also increases effectiveness of other herbs when used in combination with them.

Try sprouted pumpkin seeds seasoned with ginger and cayenne for a delicious snack and a medicine for treating intestinal bugs! The best is African Cayenne. 

Green Hulls of Black Walnut

These have been shown to have powerful effects on killing many varieties of parasites. The dried and ground green hull of the black walnut contains tannin, which is organic iodine, as well as juglandin.

Black walnut has been used for centuries to expel various types of worms, including parasites that cause skin irritations such as ringworm. It oxygenates the blood, which also helps kill parasites. You can find black walnut growing in the wild in abundance.

Black walnut is very effective against tapeworms, pinworms, Candida albicans (yeast infections) and malaria. It is also effective in reducing blood sugar levels, and helping the body rid itself of toxins.

Best of all, you can find these babies growing outside in the wild in abundance. I have a tree in my front yard that gives more than I can use! Your best bet is to take an alcohol tincture of it three times a day.

Don’t Forget Probiotics

Remember to take probiotics at the end of the day during a parasite herbal protocol because parasite-killing herbs knock out everything, including good bacteria. The best probiotics are food-based, such as sauerkraut, kefir and raw yogurts.

Also, remember to get plenty of rest while on a parasite cleanse. First of all, sleep is incredibly healing and needed for repair and rebuilding. You will also want to drink plenty of clean water. Any activity that promotes rest, relaxation and builds energy is a wise move for boosting the immune system!
