Dr Oz: Hidden Health Hazards in Your Gut

Dr Oz spoke about an Electrolyte Elixir Recipe that helps prevent Charley Horses, but what if you feel unusually tired and it is caused by parasites?  What should you do?  And how can you tell if you have parasites?  If you’re feeling tired and run down all the time, it may not be for the reasons you think. On today’s show, Dr Oz was joined by Gastroenterologist, Dr. Robynne Chutkan, MD to tell you why parasites may be the hidden health hazard inside your gut. (Yuck!)

According to Dr. Chutkan, the #1 reason you may feel fatigue all the time could be due to parasites attacking your body from the inside.

Dr Oz Parasites

Dr Oz spoke about Parasites that make you tired.

Parasites steal nutrients and may cause issues such as bowel problems and chronic fatigue. Forty million people are infected with parasites and don’t even know it. The worst part is; these parasites can last for years.

Dr. Chutkan said that 46% of people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome have been infested with parasites. This can occur by contaminated drinking water, not washing the hands and eating infected fruit from overseas.

Dr Oz: Visible Parasites

-visible- these are the worm like parasites that come from food. They sit in your gut and grow on you. These parasites rob you of nutrients and can grow up to 50ft. They can live up to 25 years. (Dr Oz showed and endoscopic image of the worms and it was gross!) These parasite burrow into the wall of your intestines and suck up blood, which in turn causes anemia and fatigue.

    Thanks Dr. Oz, I will take this to my doctor because just yesterday(2-28-12) I visited my hematogologist thinking my blood level had dropped but that was not the case. I will visit my GI and tell him of the symptoms and print this article and take with me. Again thanks and I love you and your show. Due to my work schedule I cannot watch it daily.

I am a 65 year old with heavy breast an the older I get I have lots of neck , back , and shoulder pain. I have already had shoulder surgery .I am not financial able to have this without help.

  4. Why can’ t we find this video clip on Dr Oz’s web site?

  5. please what are the medications for Parasites?…I have those symptoms…and no insurance.
    my stools are loose and not yellow, but when I wipe it is yellow

  6. Dixie Neitzel says:

    What were the names of the micrscopic parasites in your gut causing the problems???

  7. Most likely parasite is Giardia.

  8. Dr Oz, you suggested Wormwood tea for parasites. I have done research on it and it showed many serious negative effects. What is your view on that?

  9. Dr Oz…I look up on a website about wormwood, and they said they wormwood can cause serious side affects including death..is there something more safe then this to rid the body of parasites?

  10. It has worked for my brother and myself and tons of people all over the world. Yes I can tell you a for sure way to get rid of ALL parasites and quickly! It works for everyone because it chases them right out of the body. Take 1 tablespoon 3 times a day in a little bit of water and a straw. Rinse mouth with water after. ACV not only rids virus, fungus and bacteria out of the intestines but its a miracle food because it cures so many things by putting in vitamins, minerals and enzymes back into the body! Take Braggs (only this brand!) Raw Apple Cider Vinegar. It tastes nasty but just put some water in it and drink it with a straw then drink water after. In 2 weeks you should be feeling a whole lot better and those parasites will be gone. Stay on it for life though to keep flushing out the eggs. Its miracle food from God!
