Dr Oz: Foods That Prevent Parasite Infections
Do you have the flu or is it a parasite? Dr. Oz revealed startling information about parasites that could be infecting your body without you even realizing it! He and his guests shared the symptoms of some of the most common infections caused by parasites, but would you recognize the signs if you got sick?
Dr Oz: Roundworm Infection Symptoms
Dr. Oz’s next guest believed she was simply sick with the flu until she started to cough up roundworms. What might be worse is that they were alive! She actually did not believe what she saw in the toilet, so she went back to bed thinking she was imagining things due to the high fever she was experiencing. The next morning it only got worse, so she immediately went to see her doctor, but she says she never actually learned where the worms came from. Fortunately she is doing well now, but says she does suffer from asthma and avoids eating spaghetti. Dr. Margaret Williamson explained the common symptoms associated with a roundworm infection.
- Abdominal bloating
Dr. Williamson says that a roundworm infection is diagnosed by looking at a person’s stool because it will be filled with roundworm eggs.
Dr Oz: Whole Grains Improve Intestinal Health
Dr. Oz wanted to offer natural ways you can protect yourself from getting an infection from a parasite. The first is to eat a lot of high-fiber foods in your diet, especially whole grains. High fiber foods actually prevent parasites from being able to grab onto the inside of your intestines, so they then just float away and out of your body.
Dr. Oz recommended devoting one week every month to increasing the amount of whole grains you are eating so you can flush your body and keep it free of parasites.
Dr Oz: Do Probiotics Prevent Parasites?
Dr. Oz’s next recommendation to prevent parasites is a probiotic called S.Boulardii. It is good for your gut and supports the health of your gastrointestinal system. It contains a high amount of yeast, which creates an environment that parasites do not like!
- Take 250 MG 2 times per day
Dr Oz: Does Garlic Kill Parasites?
Dr. Oz had a third tip to offer for someone who thinks they may already have a parasite. He says garlic helps to kill parasites, which is why it is so widely used for its medicinal capabilities.
- Crushing releases more allicin

- Try 2 cloves per day
Dr Oz: Wormwood Tea Review
Dr. Oz’s final recommendation is for wormwood tea, which has been used for its medicinal properties for many years. It is not only beneficial to prevent parasites, but it will also kill ones that have entered your gut.
- Drink 1 cup per day
- Helps kill worms
- Costs about $10, loose leaf or extract
