The effects of the full moon on parasites
Parasites and the Full moon!
Did you know that Parasites increase their movement in your body including reproducing around the full moon?
This is due to our circadian rhythm being affected by the full moon cycle making our body produce more serotonin and less melatonin. Parasites love serotonin as it stimulates muscles and allows them to move about more freely in your body, it helps them to reproduce and also get stronger as it increases their ability to feed!
Another interesting way they use serotonin is to communicate with each other and create biofilms in your body so that they can inhibit your immune system from getting rid of them.
If you have a heavy parasitic infection you may feel very unwell around the week of the full moon. If you find yourself feeling very depressed, anxious, craving sugar, unable to sleep, increased levels of pain in your body, diarrhoea or constipation or general weakness and fatigue it may be due to this higher level of parasite activity.
