If you’re battling tiredness, brain fog, and bloat, parasites could be to blame. Our favorite swimming holes this past summer (and even our pets) may have exposed us to these invaders, which doctors rarely diagnose. Women over 50 are most at risk since levels of parasite-destroying stomach acid drop with age. I recommend black walnut and cloves to restore energy. Both contain antimicrobial agents that kill parasites, their larvae, and eggs. To try: Verma-Plus (Unikey-Health.com), which delivers the ingredients in a tincture you add to water.
Planning a long-overdue vacation or trip to visit family or friends? Taking elderberry extract 10 days before traveling (and continuing for five days after you return) will help you enjoy your trip to the fullest.
