Parasites in humans are the root cause of many chronic illnesses, including cancer, fibromyalgia, adrenal fatigue, leaky gut, autism, and lyme, to name a few. Unfortunately there are very few practitioners in the western world who know how to diagnose, let alone treat parasites in humans.

Kalcker Parasite Protocol – an efficient treatment for those with Autism.
Western Practitioners Don’t Know How to Diagnose or Treat Parasites. Parasites are a third world problem. Many of us in western civilization DO have parasites. The question is, are the parasites bothering us and can our bodies control them? Perhaps, but leaving our bodies with chronic parasitic infections makes them prone to other infections and diseases.
Worms have 100x the level of metals, toxins, bacteria, and viruses that we have in our bodies. It is best to get the worms out whole so the toxins aren’t released in the body. Mebendazole is great medication to use for parasite protocol.
Parasites differ from other organisms because they live in or on their host and get food from or at the expense of the host. They go through various stages in their development from an egg to a larvae to an adult. Children with Autism have tons of parasites usually due to their overload of toxins and gut problems. We started Jovan on a parasite protocol and its starting help heal a part of him now. As a family, we are also trying to heal that because we have it too - we all do. Most of us have the symptoms above. Research, research research to find answers and improve your family's health!
"Oxalates control is a major new factor in autism therapy," according to an article published on the Great Plains Laboratory, Inc. website about test implications for yeast and heavy metals by William Shaw, PH.D. To view the entire article, please click here.
Oxalates and Autism
Oxalate and its acid form oxalic acid are organic acids that are primarily from three sources: the diet, from fungus such as Aspergillus, Penicillium, and possibly Candida, and also from human metabolism.
Oxalates in the urine are much higher in individuals with autism than in those who do not have autism. As a matter of fact, 36% of the children on the autistic spectrum had values higher than 90 mmol/mol creatinine, the value consistent with a diagnosis of genetic hyperoxalurias while none of the children who did not have autism had values this high. 84% of the children on the autistic spectrum had oxalate values outside the normal range. None of the children on the autistic spectrum had elevations on the other organic acids associated with genetic diseases of oxalate metabolism, indicating that oxalates are high due to external sources.
A brand new diet is being extensively used to treat children with autism and other disorders. Researcher Susan Owens discovered that the use of a diet low in oxalates markedly reduced symptoms in children with autism. For example, a mother with a son with autism reported that he became more focused and calm, that he played better, that he walked better, and had a reduction in leg and feet pain after being on a low oxalate diet. Prior to the low oxalate diet, her child could hardly walk up the stairs. After the diet, he walked up the stairs very easily. Many hundreds of children with autism throughout the world are now being placed on this diet with good results.

High Oxalate Food List
This is a short list of high oxalate fruits and vegetables. The foods below contain more than 10 mg oxalate per serving. A more detailed list is available online from the University of Pittsburgh Schools of the Health Sciences website.
Polyphenols are micro nutrients that we get through certain plant-based foods. They're packed with antioxidants and potential health benefits. It's thought that polyphenols can improve or help treat digestion and weight management issues, diabetes, neurodegenerative disease, and cardiovascular disease.
70% of your immune system lives in your digestive tract. Your body's naturally-occurring probiotics feed on polyphenols. A polyphenol-rich diet can help you feel better and digest your food better. That's right, eating foods with polyphenols can help fuel our own probiotics, making our own digestive systems healthier.
It's best to get polyphenols by eating foods containing them rather than via supplements, which can limit iron absorption. There are polyphenol blends available for purchase, but they need to be soy-free, lactose-free and manufactured to cGMP standards and have the same high polyphenol content you'd receive if you simple at the food itself, rather than purchase a supplement.
The best way we've found to harness the highest nutrient content of these powerful foods is to eat them raw and also blend them to add to our kombucha and daily blended juices. This has a wonderful effect on my family's health. It helps to detoxify and reduce the inflammation Jovan experiences in his gut. As I've said before, all health begins in the gut, and that's one of the main places we started to try to heal Jovan with his digestive health.
A number of different types of berries are rich in polyphenols. These include popular and easily accessible berries like:
Less commonly found berries (depending on your region) include:
Berries aren't the only fruits with plenty of polyphenols. According to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, a large number of fruits contain high numbers of polyphenols. These include:
Nuts can be very nutritious yet high in caloric value. Full of protein, these nuts are high in polyphenol content as well:
Polyphenols in food plants are a versatile group of phytochemicals with many potentially beneficial activities in terms of disease prevention. There are many vegetables that contain polyphenols, though they usually have less than fruit. Here are a few of our favorites:
Here are a few of our favorite organic greens that make healthy, nutrient-dense green juices. These have greatly helped Jovan on his healing path:
Let's be honest, daily blended vegetable shakes are tasty, but our kiddos might not agree. Jovan found a way to make his daily raw veggie shake fun!
I found the website It Starts With Juice on Instagram. I was reading about how raw vegetables could heal and detox everyone. I was on the path to heal Jovan and I found raw juicing interesting. I considering juicing with Jovan so I could find out how I would feel.
When Jovan's autism was newly diagnosed I was giving him organic store-bought juices that contained fruits and vegetables. I was shocked when I read the juice bottle's list of ingredients. The sugar and sodium levels were high and unnecessary! I was overloading Jovan on sugar. It wasn't until he was seven when I realized that I needed to begin making his juices from raw veggies on our own at home. When our family started the ketogenic diet I was in awe as I learned about the greens and fruits that had excess sugar. Sadly, I learned I was actually hurting my son by giving him fruits. The juices were converted into sugar. The worst thing I could have done for Jovan was give him sugar because sugar feeds the gut's bad bacteria. I researched which juice items would give Jovan the highest health content and the lowest amount of sugar and found the answer was pure greens. Berries were the only type of fruit we could give him due to their high antioxidant content and low glycemic (sugar) levels.
Jovan's Daily Juiced Veggies:
- One whole celery stalk
- One whole lettuce
- One bunch of kale
- Two to three inches of tumeric and ginger
- One lemon
- One bunch of celery
- One bunch of parsely
Another Juice Recipe:
- One bunch of collards
- One bunch of chards
- One bunch of spinach
- One bunch of cilantro
- One whole cucumber
- A few leaves of fresh basil
Another Veggie Juice Blend:
- Two bunches spinach
- One whole celery stalk
- One bunch of asparagus
- One grapefruit
(I also add fermented garlic and tumeric)
I researched the benefits of each vegetable and it's sugar content. I have been blending our juices for the past three years. I now find that I feel healthy when I've consumed two-three juices each day.
Jovan even asks for his juices now (with his limited non-verbal cues). It's really amazing how the body will thrive on the nutrients it needs. These juices really don't taste good in my opinion. Their texture is very thick, but they keep me full and healthy. We also add MTC oil to the juices which breaks down the veggies and makes the juices a lot more nutrient-based. But everyone in our house truly has at least one juice serving per day. Our days have a good solid start because it's the first thing we consume in the morning.
I sometimes add green apples and cucumbers in my blended juices which helps detox, but I do not give them to Jovan since his diet is very strict and sugar is not allowed. Although green apples do have a lot less sugar than red apples, we still adhere to Jovan's sugar-restricted diet. I suggest that those who are interested should check the sugar content of fruits to determine which veggies and fruits are healthiest to add to the blended juices.
I have seen documentaries that describe scenarios of people with cancer who have healed themselves with these vegetable juices. I also read about the life of the person that does the "it starts with juice" and she mentions that she cured herself from cancer by juicing. Research has shown that cancer is caused by sugar. I always suggest that others read and research. God knows I do :-).
After twenty years of doing private consultations for people with Crohn’s disease, Dr. Dan Beilin has come to see that there are seven key protocols that nearly everyone needs to implement in order to see their digestive healing progress rapidly.
According to Dr. Beilin, "By the time people find their way to various protocols, their bacterial flora is usually unbalanced throughout their gastrointestinal tract. If they haven’t already had repeated antibiotic use since childhood, then the medical exploratory and diagnostic tests alone have destroyed much of the good bacteria in their small and large intestine. When the good, protective bacteria are depleted, then pathogens like yeast (Candida), viruses, parasites, and bad bacteria flourish." Read on to learn more about these seven key protocols.
Candida is a yeast that normally exists in its harmless and beneficial yeast form in the digestive tract and throughout the body, along with 100 trillion other microbes.
Primarily due to the effects of antibiotics, it rapidly converts to its fungal form and spreads throughout the body. The fungal form will affect the way every organ, tissue, and cell of the body functions. This can contribute to over 120 different diseases and conditions.
Common symptoms associated with candida include: sugar/sweet cravings, gas, bloating, fatigue, low energy, allergies, sinusitis, acid reflux, hormonal imbalances, brain fog, depression and arthritis.
The healthy gut contains both yeast and good bacteria, in balance with each other. Common “good” bacteria, also called beneficial bacteria, are lactobacillus acidophilus and bifidobacterium, And don’t panic if you see it on your test, but bacteria like e-coli exist in the normal gut. Bacteria share space in the intestinal tract with the yeast. There are many strains of yeast that live in the digestive tract including candida, which appears to be the most common. Occasionally, these complex systems get out of balance and overgrowth of bad bugs becomes an issue. This is a problem in many children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD).
Bacteria can overgrow, or there can be a complete lack of beneficial bacteria. Also, bad bacteria can develop and take over, rather than good bacteria, causing major problems for our children. There are also several different types of “bad” bacteria, including clostridia and Citrabacter F.
Antibiotics kill bacteria, both good and bad, but not yeast. Antibiotic use makes yeast worse, or can start off an unhealthy reaction causing yeast overgrowth. Yeast can grow to fill in the space left by the removal of the bacteria.
Overgrowth is made possible by a dysfunctional immune system or gastrointestinal distress. A healthy immune system and regular, healthy bowel movements should keep the candida in check.
What is important to remember: Yeast lives and feeds on sugar. Limiting high sugar (or foods that turn into sugar in the gut) is the first and most important step to controlling yeast overgrowth. A diet high in carbs causes and feeds yeast overgrowth.
What does yeast overgrowth look like? Yeast overgrowth may manifests itself in behavior and physical signs.
Behavioral signs may be:
