Everyone can do with an intestinal cleanse, and it is important to treat the whole family at least every 6 months to keep on top of any intestinal parasites such as worms.
This easy pumpkin seed remedy is a really good prevention for parasites that can upset tummies and cause a multitude of other health issues, and it tastes great too.
There are some good natural treatment on the market, but we use this cheap, easy and tasty cleanse remedy to keep our family healthy throughout the year. Even the pets all get a dose every few months, including our chickens, dogs, cats and guinea pigs.
Pumpkin seeds have been used traditionally for many years to treat parasites, and remove toxins. They contain a substance called cucurbitin which paralyses parasites and removes them from the body.
They are also a REALLY good source of vitamins A, B and K, and also contain a good amount of the mineral zinc.
Easy Intestinal Cleanse
Take 300g – 500gs of pumpkin seeds (or more if you have a bigger family, or want to dose your pets).
Grind the seeds in a coffee grinder or whizz until almost a powder but not quite.
Take 1 tbsp a day for 3-4 days on either porridge, or cereal. It is really tasty on muesli. For kids you can add it to a smoothie and blend well or even mix it into their mince for tea. For animals I just mix it with their wet food and they haven’t noticed yet. The chickens will just eat it as it!
NOTE: If you are sure you have a parasite infestation seek medial advice, and double the dose of pumpkin seeds. Also add in a high quality garlic supplement to ensure all the parasites are taken care of.
