Parasites and Worms Naturally with doTerra Essential Oils

doTerra essential oils are very effective at removing worms and parasites from the body in both children and adults. Since the oils are therapeutic grade pure oils, the oils listed below can be taken internally in addition to their external and aromatic benefits. 

Here is the Oil and Supplement Protocol that rids the body of worms, parasites and candida. My close friend, Jaime Walsh, who is a colon therapist, has seen amazing results with the following protocol in her clients, as have I with my clients: 

Take doTerra GX Assist 1 to 3 times a day for 5 days to clear out the junk in the digestive system and to help support your body's defense against harmful GI pathogens that can disrupt digestive immunities and cause upset Rest for 2 days Then repeat protocol for another 5 days. GX Assist contains oregano, melaleuca, lemon, lemongrass, peppermint and thyme essential oils combined with caprylic acid.

Next take doTerra's PB Assist for 5 days to introduce potent levels of the friendly probiotic flora necessary for healthy digestive function. PB Assist+ contains pre-biotic fiber and six strains of probiotic microorganisms delivering 6 billion colony forming units (CFUs) of active probiotic cultures. Their time-released double capsule delivery system ensure that sensitive probiotic cultures are protected from stomach acid and delivered into the intestinal tract.

GX Assist and PB Assist-for kids that can swallow capsules I would just have them do 1 capsule a day. For adults you can start with 1 capsule and work up to 3 capsules a day. This cleanse can be repeated once a month for parasites and will be most effective starting 2 days before the full moon when the worms are most active and out of hiding. Parasites have cycles so it can take 3-4 months to make sure they are all removed.

Oils to use with the above protocol or if you have kids that are not able to swallow pills:

On Guard-this blend contains clove and cinnamon which are both well known for their parasitic actions. Rub a couple drops on bottom of each foot and put 1 drop in water or in a capsule for kids and 2-3 drops for adults. Some people can handle a drop in a shot of water while others don't like the taste and prefer to put the oil blend into an empty vegetable capsule. This blend will also keep them from getting sick and fights fungal, bacterial and viral infections in addition to parasites. When parasites die off they release viruses and bacteria into our bodies. On Guard will help counteract this and reduce die off symptoms.

Lemon- This is excellent for supporting the body especially the liver while killing off the worms and parasites. You can rub it directly over the liver area on yourself and the kids. You can drink a couple drops in water daily to assist the body in flushing out all the toxins the parasites give off when dying. It is in the GX Assist as well. For kids, you can also rub it on their feet.

Oregano-it is the number one natural antibiotic and is great for killing off bacteria, candida, parasites and viruses. This is in the GX Assist and with kids who can't swallow capsules, rub it on the bottom of their feet. It is a hot oil so on the bottom of the feet is best for them. If rubbing anywhere else, make sure and dilute the oil with a little coconut oil. 

Melaleuca-it kills many bacteria, fungi and viruses on contact. It is also in the GX Assist and can be rubbed on bottom of feet and diluted and rubbed over abdomen.

Bergamot, Basil and Roman Chamomile are all worm expellers- you can take in a shot of water a drop of each 1or 2 times a day or put in capsules. Also rubbing these on bottoms of kids feet and dilute a little and rub over abdomen. A great night time tea is to use 1 to 2 drops Roman Chamomile essential oil in warm water with raw honey since it is a worm expeller and is a great night tea as well.

Make sure to have regular bowel movements. It is so important that the bowels are moving and not being stagnant. An easy remedy I suggest is: Take a spoonful of fresh coconut oil each morning with breakfast. Three hours later take a teaspoon of castor oil. Repeat this daily if not having a bowel movement while trying to kill intestinal worms.

I recommend everyone in your family do the worm protocol if possible as when one person has worms most likely everyone in the house does. Essential oils are able to cross the cell membrane which enables them to reach all cells in the body within 30 minutes and are absorbed in the body within 30 seconds so it will greatly help with systemic parasite issues.
