Parasite cleansing is something that Olivia talks about often on her blog, as it is one of the major puzzle pieces that helped her to regain her health and digestion. For years, she was plagued with IBS, food sensitivities, cystic acne, and poor digestion. Colonoscopies and stool tests all came up “normal” and her doctors told her that she would have to be on prescription medication for life.
Below is a picture of Olivia’s back before starting the formula. After completing three rounds of the cleanse (with breaks in between, and adequate probiotics to replenish the beneficial flora), the painful cystic acne on her back almost completely cleared up (as seen in the second picture). She soon realized that her debilitating IBS and food sensitivities were gone, and she was able to eat a variety of foods again without painful bloating or gas. The picture at the bottom is one of the actual parasites that she saw while cleansing. It was several inches in length and had the stench of metal which is believed to be a cause of internal parasites, since they can feed and grow strong from heavy metal exposure.
Although a majority of parasitic organisms are too small to be seen by the naked eye (such as protozoa or viruses), many people who parasite cleanse may see the occasional larger species such as worms or flukes as Olivia did. If one is too squeamish to look (we understand), you may simply feel the benefits, such as smoother digestion.*
Once she saw with her own two eyes the parasites she was housing, the mystery of her symptoms and her fatigue made sense. Mind you, at this point she had never even stepped foot out of the country! As mentioned, doctors told her there was no way she was housing any foreign organisms. Her stool was tested for parasites and came up negative. Imagine her doctor’s surprise when she went back with photos of the worms she had passed. He turned and said, “Whatever you’re doing, don’t stop. You are on the right track, but I can’t speak with you about this.”
She later learned that parasite cleansing 1-2x per year as a preventative measure is very common across many cultures, and it’s something we’ve simply lost in our modern fast-paced world. Every indigenous culture around the world parasite cleanses using some sort of plant botanical. When Olivia spoke to her boyfriend’s grandmother, she told her that her culture (Ecuadorian) cleanses each year with a mixture of herbs, grapefruit juice, and castor oil. Why not America? We de-worm our pets twice a year, and we share their living space. Why have we not been taught to de-worm ourselves with gentle, immune-boosting herbs? We believe this is a huge missing piece of America’s health puzzle.
Here are two experiences from customers who’ve taken the Formula (many more are found in our Success Stories):
• Assists digestion and support’s the body’s elimination of waste and harmful organisms, to aid in eliminating bloating and fatigue.
• Contributes to the maintenance of the digestive tract health and healthy bowel movements.
• Assists the body’s energy and vitality.
• Burdock Root is high in B vitamins and minerals to help replenish your body’s stores of nutrients, and supports digestive tract, liver and kidney health.
• Contains a unique, patented mushroom extract that is shown in human studies to increase beneficial bifidobacterium (probiotics) and decrease pathogenic bacteria.*
The herbs included in our capsules (all wild-crafted):
●Olive Leaf Extract – The Bible refers to the olive tree as the “tree of life.” In the early 1900s, scientists isolated a bitter compound called oleuropein from olive leaf that was thought to give the olive tree its disease resistance. In 1969 the active components in oleuropein, namely elenolic acid and calcium elenolate were isolated and tested by researchers at the Upjohn Company. Their results were exciting as they found that these active components inhibited the growth of every harmful organism they were tested against.
●Olive Leaf (Whole) – Not only do we use olive leaf extract, we also use the whole plant itself, because we believe nature always gets it right! There are so many undiscovered plant compounds waiting to be recognized by science, so we wanted to include the unprocessed leaf to help the active extract do its job.
●Garlic – Garlic is one of the main remedies recommended for parasites by the University of Maryland Medical Center. We chose garlic as one of our main stars because it is a whole plant food and works against several stages of harmful organisms to prevent them from replicating in the future. The active component in garlic (allicin) has been clinically studied for years for its innumerable health benefits.
●Agaricus Bisporus Mushroom (Champex Extract) – Champex is a powerful mushroom extract that was actually patented for its ability to fight foul breath and body odors at their source – in the intestines (via harmful bacteria/ organisms). A portion of the foods we ingest is decomposed and converted by intestinal organisms into toxic chemicals such as ammonia, mercapatan, indoles and hydrogen sulphide – all of which produce strong, offensive odors. Some of these products are absorbed, through the intestinal walls, into the blood and circulate through the entire body contributing to fatigue. The chemicals are then discharged as foul breath or body odours. Champex attacks foul breath and body odors where they originate, supporting and maintaining a clean condition within the intestines by suppressing the generation of toxic chemicals. In human clinical trials, Champex has been shown to increase levels of beneficial human bacteria (probiotics) such as bifidobacterium. At the same time, pathogenic bacteria such as Lecithinase-positive Clostridium, coliform bacteria, and Staphylococcus showed a decreasing trend at the standard dosage. Mushrooms such as Champex are prebiotics – meaning they feed and provide the proper environment for the right bacteria to grow, while gently fighting the “bad guys” that steal our energy and lower our immune systems. On top of this, Agaricus Bisporus is a wonderful food for kidney health! To ensure that all elimination organs are supported during detox, we chose this mushroom for the kidneys to complement Burdock Root, which helps the liver.
●Wormwood – Wormwood contains the plant compounds thujone and isothujone, which are the components that protect the plant (and animals/humans) from foreign organisms. Wormwood also helps produce bile, which in turn supports the liver and gallbladder.
●Ginger – Ginger contains ultra-potent anti-inflammatory compounds called gingerols. Ginger tea has been taken by cultures as an anti-parasite remedy for centuries. Its warming effect on the body strengthens and supports your organs and vital energy, boosting your immune system to fight invaders in the future. Its warming qualities also balance the bitter herbs in this formula to ensure balance.
●Burdock Root – An ancient blood purifier, Burdock is wonderful for supporting skin, kidney, and liver health. It provides many vitamins, and aids the body’s detox process. Burdock is a major ingredient in the famous “Essiac Tea” remedy.
●Lemon Balm – Lemon balm is a member of the mint family and is considered a calming herb. It has been used for centuries to reduce nervousness, promote sleep and improve symptoms of indigestion. A 2008 study showed that lemon balm was effective at reducing viruses, gram-positive bacteria and Candida albicans. – http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7630324
●Cat’s Claw – Cat’s claw extracts demonstrate powerful antioxidant effects in quenching the dangerous peroxyl and superoxide radicals. Laboratory analysis indicates that the antioxidant power of cat’s claw exceeds that of many extracts of fruits, vegetables, cereals, and medicinal plants. Cat’s claw extract improves markers of immune system health in animals and humans, suggesting that it may help defend against infectious invaders.

●Atlantic Dulse – Seaweed, such as Dulse, boasts 56 bioavailable minerals and trace elements. These minerals supply our body with the tools our immune system needs to naturally fight harmful organisms on its own.
●Aloe Ferox – We use a tiny amount of Aloe Ferox to help prevent sluggish elimination during the cleansing period. The sap of Aloe Ferox (a South African variety of aloe) produces bitter crystals that act as a remarkable colon cleanser. Aloe Ferox is similar to Aloe Vera, but has many times more nutritional and medicinal value. It contains over 130 active plant compounds that facilitate the body’s natural healing process.
●Bioperine – Piperine, also known by its trademarked name, BioPerine, is an extract derived from black pepper that is proven to increase the absorption of various herbs and nutrients by up to 229%.* This effect is known as “bioenhancement.” According to an article published in the “Journal of Ayruveda and Integrative Medicine” in 2010, piperine has been shown to increase the absorption of vitamin C, selenium, beta-carotene, vitamin A, vitamin B-6 and coenzyme Q. The article goes on to suggest that piperine may be useful for people who suffer from conditions that cause malabsorption of nutrients and people suffering from malnutrition.
Side Effects/Die Off:
For some very sick people, including those with chronic fatigue syndrome or those who have particularly large amounts of viruses orbacteria in their bodies, products that target harmful organisms may generate detoxification symptoms. These symptoms are known as the “die-off effect”. Such individuals may actually feel worse for a short time before feeling better. The “die-off effect”, or Herxheimer Reaction, refers to symptoms generated by the detoxification process, such as fatigue, headaches, muscle/joint aching or flu-like symptoms. It is crucial to drink at least a full glass of water each time one takes a dosage, and as always, so start slow and work your way up.
We recommend starting at 2 capsules, 2 times per day. You may stay at this dosage to avoid stronger die-off effects, especially if you are generally sensitive to herbs or medications.

I used this and loved it I felt so good after doing it but do you do this once a yr or every 6 months, I will be getting another bottle for sure thanks..
Hi, I am interested in purchasing this product however I am not clear if I also need to buy the tinctures and the betonite clay you recommend on your blog?
I was very sceptic about doing a parasite cleanse, but the ingredients were natural and organic so I gave it a try. I wish I could say I have been consistent with this cleanse but I haven’t. Sometimes I forget to take pills and I didn’t get the right dose each day. On my first week of this cleanse I noticed some white sesame seed looking things inside my poop. I thought maybe was the quinoa I was eating with my salads. Then again those things appeared when I wasn’t eating anything close to resemble those things. I thought maybe I wasn’t paying enough attention to the salads I was eating and maybe somewhere were some sesame seeds. I did some googling and I found out those were some type of left overs of tapeworm…gross!!!! Im literally terrified of what might come out next from my body. I have felt super bloated for the past year, always having problems digesting and I thought maybe was gluten or that i developed some sort of intolerance towards something but never that I might have these terrifying creatures inside me. I am going to be consistent from now on , on this cleanse and see what else comes out of my body that I had no idea I had. I will update….
Olivia, you are incredible! The ParaPro Forumla was amazing. I’ve been following OO for awhile now and I’ve always had eczema, food sensitives and craved sugar (even though I avoided it usually). I decided to give the parasite cleanse a go. I didn’t have any extreme die off symptoms (possibly because I’ve done a herbal cleanse before or because I didn’t have tons of parasites). I felt so rejuvenated after and during the cleanse. Any abdominal bloat after eating any types of foods was gone. I find myself less sensitive to foods that flare up my eczema. I didn’t take apart my bowel movements but I did peak. I don’t know what I passed but I do believe something came out over the cleanse. I even had a dream while on the cleanse about parasites leaving my body, which (to me) was amazing and convincing. I no longer crave sugar and my appetite isn’t as high as it use to be. I lost a couple lbs whether it be from the cleanse or my walking routine or a combination. Overall, I think my skin looks better, my stomach is flat and I feel happier and healthier. Thank you SOOOO much Olivia for your passion, intelligence, honesty/openness in all your posts and of course your hard work on developing this product. I’m going to do another cleanse at the end of summer and we all know where I’ll be getting it from : ). Xoxo #TeamOlivia
This has been my savior. My only regret was not getting it sooner when I first found Olivia’s youtube channel. I’m 25 and had (relatively) clear skin all my life until about a year ago. It started off in areas that weren’t uncommon for me to have random short-lived break-outs, like my forehead and chin. However, my skin suddenly started changing and became more oily, and my breakouts started to look out of the norm for me. I started getting large pussy pimples on my forehead that weren’t going away. I looked up so much stuff and changed my diet, adopted the Korean 10-step skincare routine, drank more water… I tried EVERYTHING. I was still suffering after 9 months of changing everything I could to become healthier in hopes to change me skin. And it had even spread to my cheeks! Where I had NEVER broken out before! My entire right cheek was in a frenzy (while my left cheek was fine) and it wasn’t having my phone on my face or sleeping on my side. The saddest part was, I even bought a cheaper liquid-form parasite cleanse after hearing about that possibility from Olivia, because I wasn’t sure the $70 was worth it at the time. But the $20 liquid parasite cleanse didn’t work for me. Finally, in May of this year (2017), I bought my first bottle, and the results were shocking to say the least. I’m now into my third bottle (I didn’t wait between… I’m still wondering if that it necessary?) because I hear that you need to cleanse for 60-90 days to get them all? With the cycles? If anyone can help me, I am not sure if I messed up by not waiting a couple weeks between bottles. I have been doing the 2 capsules, 3 times a day since the first week I started because my body can handle a lot of herbs pretty well, so each bottle only lasts me 30 days. Anyway, my skin has cleared up a lot, and now I am stuck with just the sad scars that will probably take months to fade, but is much more manageable than active breakouts. Thank you so much Olivia <3
I started my cleanse today but did not receive and Ebook guide. How long should I take the pills for?
I had bought my bottle last year and had never been consistent with my doses until two weeks ago. At that point, I only had a week left of pills (three doses a day) so I decided to be consistent and do it right this time. Today I passed a spaghetti like long worm in my stool, which I believe is a roundworm, and I couldn’t believe it was still intact! And that was only a week of pills! I’m waiting until I get my birthday money next week to buy another bottle and actually get the dosage right from start to finish. So thankful for you Olivia ❤️

I’ve been taking the ParaPro formula for 3 weeks now, 2 pills, 3 times a day and I have not seen a single parasite in the toilet. I’m not sure if this is working for me. as I don’t feel any improvements in my symptoms. This was very expensive, I just wish it worked for me.
I first started this cleanse about 2 years ago and I have done 4 since (that’s how good it is). I first began it due to having acne for years of my life, which has cleared up 98% just on completing the first cleanse. It also helped me alter my diet in the most beneficial way which has helped me lose weight along with making my metabolism faster. I can honestly say it has changed my life in such a positive way and I have learned so much along the journey that comes with it!! Xoxo thank you Olivia!
You DO have worms! I finally got the courage to look after 2.5 weeks on the cleanse. I cannot imagine how many more I would have seen if I looked sooner. It took me around 5 days to get used to the herbs, then it was smooth sailing. When looking, I used chop sticks and did some simple searching. I really cannot believe what I saw. I plan to wait the 2 weeks before starting the cleanse again, because I want to make sure I can get the adults out like Olivia did. The things I wish I did more on this cleanse was exercise more, eat more vegetables (salads, raw veggies) and sweat more. I had aloe vera and spurilina during this cleanse. The aloe for soothing my digestion and the spurilina to help eliminate heavy metals which Olivia talks about in conjunction with parasites. I did the “gentle cleansing” and took the 2 doses prior to lunch, and 2 doses prior to dinner. I did the cleanse for 45 days. I drank lemon water every morning, and stayed away from bread and sugar. My stomach got a lot flatter, and my digestion was crazy amazing. The bathroom visits were so easy and the healthiest I’ve ever had in my life. This product works. My friends cannot believe I actually had and saw worms. This product I will use for the rest of my life to do biannual cleanses and maintenance doses. Thank you for your magic and intelligence Olivia! I believe in your work.
Wow! Hubby and I noticed it was working after our very first dose. We have tried everything before trying this….nowhere near the results we are seeing now. Thank you for this amazing product. I am going to tell everybody I know about it.
Omg this parasite cleanse has been the best thing I’ve ever done in my life!! I was suffering from fatigue, and constantly getting urinary tract infections which would go away with antibiotics but then return with avegence! It was a recurring cycle…I decided to buy these, I had nothing to lose, and started my regimen on the full moon, it was absolutely magical!!! You truly saved my life Olivia!! I don’t even know you but I feel so connected to you now because of what you did for me 🌙✨💫
The short version: A+ product! Great quality, clear instructions, and includes a free e-guidebook that was very helpful. The long version: As a Holistic Health Practitioner, I don’t take leaving reviews lightly. (I should probably also say upfront that I am not an affiliate of Organic Olivia, just a very satisfied customer!) After the birth of my son 2 years ago, I lost the baby weight and things were good for a few months. I then started experiencing rapid weight gain with no real reason why nor a solution that was helping as much as it should. Even at a healthy weight, I tend to carry extra in my middle, which I’ve always attributed to excess stress from my previous demanding corporate career. This was different – I had so many odd symptoms that didn’t seem connected – until I stumbled across Organic Olivia on Instagram and saw her posts, blogs, and videos on parasites. I fell down the rabbit hole of parasite research and became convinced that was my underlying condition. Of course I’ve heard about it, but I believed what many health practitioners believe – that parasites are more of an issue for those living in dirty conditions or 3rd world countries. That simply isn’t true. I started the cleanse slowly but saw evidence of parasites within a couple of days of taking it. But then…about 2 weeks into cleanse at full strength, I couldn’t believe what was in the toilet! It appeared my issue was flukes – liver and intestinal, and possibly blood flukes, too. One bathroom trip alone had so many that I stopped counting after 13 but there had to be at least 25 or more large flukes, dead, but completely intact. They were between the size of a penny and a quarter!!! From there I passed a few a day until the cleanse was complete. The cycle of a parasite is long and ongoing, so I plan to do another cleanse in a few weeks just to be safe. Alslo – belly size has reduced a lot, no more bloating even after a meal, and ZERO sugar cravings. I used to crave sugar like crazy. I avoided it because I know better, but I still craved it. That’s gone – no more late night hankering for sweets, nada. Olivia, I am impressed and thankful for your work! Thank you!!!
