Parasite Infection Symptoms

“Over half of all Americans will at some point in their lives become hosts to parasites, according to health experts. Since the effects of infection reach far beyond the gastrointestinal tract, it behooves all of us to be on the alert for the wide array of bodily symptoms that signal the presence of parasites. Signs and symptoms may come about during initial exposure, shortly after that exposure, or many months later. What many of us are attributing to old age, stress, or plain old poor health may, in fact, be due to an uninvited guest.”

LICENSING STATUS: Because of the way the new law governing Naturopathic Doctors here in Colorado has been written (House Bill 13-1111), my education does not qualify me to be licensed, certified, or registered by the state as a Naturopathic Doctor. Only those who attended Naturopathic medical schools can be licensed. My training was in historical/traditional naturopathy…which is entirely non-medical. That said, according to Senate Bill 13-215 I am free to continue helping people as I always have (nutritional consulting), but I can’t use the ND designation that I earned from Trinity, nor call myself a Dr. I can use the designation of Naturopath/Nutritionist.

OTHER LEGAL ISSUES: You need to know that part of the law states that I am to instruct you to discuss any of my recommendations with your primary care physician and/or other licensed health care professionals from whom you’re seeking help. You also need to know that I carry no liability insurance applicable to any injury caused by any of my advice.
