How To Use Mimosa Pudica For Parasites

Does the thought of having parasites make you cringe? That’s the reaction most of us have when presented with this uncomfortable subject. Parasites are more common than you think, it’s estimated that up to 1/3rd of Americans are infected. In this post, I want to talk about mimosa pudica for parasites.

Since parasites are implicated in many chronic illnesses, it’s important to be aware of the symptoms they cause, the damage they create, and effective strategies to eliminate them.

Mimosa Pudica Medicinal Uses

MP, “The Sensitive Plant,” is a fern whose leaves close when touched, most likely, as a defense mechanism against herbivores. It is also called the “bashful or shrinking” plant due to this characteristic.  MP is popular in many areas of the world, and is native to tropical America. It is both an annual and a perennial shrub. This beautiful plant, with pink or light purple flowers, is also used as a house plant, and has been used extensively in traditional medicine.

How We Get Parasites

Parasites are everywhere. Typically, they are associated with third-world countries, but those of us who live in the United States are not immune. We get them from contaminated food and water, such as, ponds and lakes, improperly cooked meat, and unclean fruits and vegetables. Restaurant salad bars can be breeding grounds for parasites. You can even get them by walking barefoot as they are transmitted through the soil. They can also be sexually transmitted or contracted through contaminated blood and feces.

Tiny parasitic eggs can be transmitted from person to person through improper hygiene practices such as neglecting to wash your hands after using the restroom. These eggs can be on any surface – door handles, tables, or money – any contaminated surface can be a source of transmission.

Travel to foreign countries is another source of parasitic infections. From single-celled protozoa to long tapeworms, there are many types and varieties of tapeworms. This is why the symptoms can be so varied. People with weakened immune systems are at risk of contracting parasites.

Take measures to make your body inhospitable to parasites by keeping your immune system strong so the bugs can’t take up residence and wreak havoc.

How Parasites Wreak Havoc

While some people are able to live with parasites and have no observable effects, others become very ill, developing many symptoms, and experience a noticeable decline in health.

Parasites are implicated in many chronic and unexplained illnesses due to the effect they have on the immune system. Their waste products lead to toxicity, and this, along with an already weakened immune system, paves the way for many conditions to develop. Autoimmunity, Lyme disease, IBS, arthritis, and virtually any other inflammatory condition, can be associated with parasites.

Parasitic infections lead to nutrient deficiencies because they consume the nutrition meant for you  – this leads to hunger, cravings, and weight loss. Eggs from parasites can cause itching, skin and mood disturbances, and trouble sleeping. They can even cause anemia by feeding off red blood cells. They’re nasty!

Many people don’t suspect parasites as being the root cause of their chronic illnesses, but as you can see below parasites can cause a variety of distressing symptoms:

  •  Chronic digestive problems
  •  Exhaustion and chronic fatigue
  •  Headaches
  • Bruxism or teeth grinding at night
  • Anemia
  •  Depression and Anxiety
  • Aching joints
  •  Food sensitivities
  • Chronic yeast infections
  •  Skin irritations
  • Diarrhea, constipation, and vomiting
  •  Unexplained weight loss
  • Unstable blood sugar

Mimosa Pudica For Parasites

If you suspect you may have parasites, get a stool test to confirm your suspicions. A parasite protocol should be continued for at least 90 days in order to kill, not only the adult parasites, but also their eggs.

An Ayurvedic herb, MP is was found to be as effective as aspirin for reducing pain, and 30 times stronger than many anti-parasitics. The mechanism through which MP works is by paralyzing the pathogens, and is especially useful for liver flukes, worms, and intestinal nematodes. It also removes mucoid plaque, biofilms, and toxic debris from the intestines due to its stickiness.

I like the powdered form, but it can also be used as a tea. Two teaspoons daily for six months should be effective against parasites. Binders are used in conjunction with Mimosa to mop up parasitic toxic debris.

Key Points

If you have been consistently engaging in healthy lifestyle practices for some time, but still have unresolved and unrelenting symptoms, you may have parasites.

A good practice is to do a parasite cleanse every year just to be safe. Mimosa Pudica is effective remedy against parasites.

Since unhealthy diets, toxic exposures, and imbalances in the microbiome all create the perfect environment for parasites to thrive – eating healthy and properly cooked foods, drinking clean water, removing toxic exposures, and practicing good hygiene all go a long way to making your body a less desirable place for parasites to inhabit.

Ditch all processed foods as these nutrient-depleted “fake foods” depress immune function and feed parasites. Managing your stress is also vital for healthy immunity.

  1. Day 4 of taking MP pills. I have had more energy these last few days than I have had in years. I used to wake up energetic ready to go, but the last few years I have had brain fog and nothing worked to regain my energy levels…not coffee, exercising or even eliminating alcohol. On day 4 I felt something stringy being eliminated from me, and was totally grossed out. But I’m so thankful I started the MP treatment because I feel like it has saved me and I’m back to my energetic self!!!

    • Susan,
      That is so awesome and I appreciate you sharing your experience. Mimosa Pudica is a supplement we should all be on at some point. Parasites are so problematic. I’d love it if you’d continue to share your progress. All the best!

  2. Can you give me a Canadian supplier for mimosa pudica?
    I’m paying an arm and a leg shipping from the United States!
    Greatly appreciated.

  3. I feel like this plant has saved my life! I’ve been sick for the past five years with all types of parasites but a stool test never confirmed it. With this I definitely have rope worm pulling the string of ropes out and as days go by I’m still expelling all stages of the rope worm! The stuff is a miracle and has seriously saved my life!

    • Hi Jennifer,
      I’m so happy to hear that mimosa pudica has helped with your parasites. Parasites will certainly do a number on you health, in terms of adrenal, GI, liver, and immune function. MP is pretty amazing stuff. Thanks so much for reading my post, and for taking the time to leave a comments:)

  4. Hello, You say binders should be used in conjunction w Mimosa Pudica, can you elaborate please? I’m wondering if diatomaceous earth would be considered a binder or would it collect and expel the MP? Thank you, Karen

    • Hi Karen,

      Yes, it’s a good idea to use a binder to mop up the toxic debris as the pathogens die. You can use diatomaceous earth as long as it’s food grade. Just be sure and don’t take them together. So for instance, take the MP with meals and the DE between meals. Hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

  5. Hello, I’m from Germany and unfortunately there is no product of mimosa pudica seeds filled in capsules available here. Of course I could fill them in capsules myself but is there another way to take them beside tea?

    A friend told me that it’s very hard to swallow the seeds because they stick to the tongue immediately 😊.

    Thanks very much in advance!

    • Hi Martina,

      There is a company in New Jersey, here in the United States, called NutriCargo that sells Mimosa Pudica powder. You can buy a pound for $32.49, two pounds for $38.49 or a sample or $2.50 if you want to try it out. You could then capsule the powder yourself. I contacted them and they do ship to Germany. Here is the link I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

  6. I’m trying to find any study that would support your claim that, “…MP is 30 times stronger than the best medical drug.” Can you suggest any scientific studies? Thank you.

  7. I am finding MP is constipating me? Suggestions? I don’t want to take anything harsh- so far I took 4 gm vit. c and some organic filtered coffee, and that seemed to work.
    I am very seriously underweight and have a lost a stone in last 8-10 weeks, so am now just 6 stone and 51 3″ and half inches, by cutting out rice, brown, white potatoes, and bananIas I use 2 heaped dspt pea protein in smoothies daily. No dairy.
    Advice please- I do eat mostly organic meat and a little fish ( Hg!!)-and quinoa and buckwheat to tolerance and beans and lentils, same.
    I am not keen to eat meat more than 4 or 5 times a week especially red meat.
    Very alarmed when I read the scales today and looked at all the muscle I have also lost.
    I am 74. Lady.Mostly sorted AF.
    One of the aniti parasiticals is Holarhena. It blocks the absorptions of carbs. from the gut and is anti diabetic.
    I am feeling much less movt. and symptoms in my gut after 8- 11 weeks on various parasiticals- I prepared before I went in with ayurvedic ones, for 4 weeks with one from Nutri Advanced, and took berberine for 10 days before and after that.
    I am still feeling something in my liver on taking berberine again today, and an almost electric buzzing vibration and movt in the base of my lower ascending colon at about 10 pm last night.
    Would( in gut, liver, lungs, or elsewhere!!).d MP treat any parasitic tapeworm cysts?
    ?? tapeworms, ? giardia or amoebas, or liver flukes… etc in me still…?other.
    Hope some of this is useful to you or others, as well.
    Hope this not to long.

    • Hi Nina,

      Are you using a binder? Binders mop up the toxic debris that is left once parasites die. Also, if you aren’t already, I would start doing coffee enemas ASAP at least three times a week (if not more) while you’re addressing parasites. If toxins get recirculated, it can make you feel terrible. You mentioned that you feel sensations in your liver and bowel, which is another reason to expedite things by doing enemas. The faster you can get the parasites out of your system, the better you’ll feel. Parasites – are well parasitic – meaning they are stealing nutrients from you, which could in part explain your weight loss. Plus, they’re extremely draining on the immune and endocrine systems.

      It sounds like you have your diet dialed in so I’m not sure I can offer any advice on that end. The enemas will be a godsend for constipation, as well. Vitamin C is a good call. You could even take more if needed. I’m not familiar with Holarhena, but if it blocks the absorption of carbohydrates, that could be another reason for a drop in weight. You also mentioned that it’s anti-diabetic, which I assume means that it’s lowering insulin, which would also make you lose weight. Are you still taking it now?

      Also, look into cistus tea. It’s an amazing biofilm buster. Biofilms are slimy encasements that parasites sequester themselves in. Any type of pathogen is much easier to eradicate when biofilms are broken down. The tea is good for many different conditions, and is easy on the system. It would help to fortify your immune system and help to heal your intestinal lining, which would optimize nutrient absorption. Google “cistus tea and Dr. Deitrich Klinghardt” on YouTube. He’s been using the tea for years to help people with Lyme disease and autism.

      I hope that helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions. Happy to help in any way I can…

  8. Hi there! Thanks so far for all the useful information above. It’s been interesting reading through.

    My daughter and I both have Dientamoeba Fragilis and the doctor has prescribed me (only) with a second course of antibiotics to eradicate it, but after hearing lots of good things about the Mimosa Pudica tincture, I am keen to know if I can take this (and a biofilm buster / enzyme defence) at the same time as the antibiotics to really kick ass?

    Then for my daughter, who is 6, could she have the same Mimosa Pudica tincture as me, and what dosage is best for her? Also could she take a binder as well, and what would you recommend that isn’t the Cistus Tea or a tablet? Thanks!

    • Hi Jo,

      Thank you for reading my post. Sorry to hear that you and your daughter have a parasite. I would talk with your doctor about taking mimosa in conjunction with an antibiotic. I would hate to lead you astray. Mimosa is safe to take with other herbs and supplements though. Be sure and take the biofilm buster on an empty stomach at least 30 minutes before you take the tincture. It’s best to take binders at least two hours away from both food and medication. You’ll have to develop a system for when to take what. Mental gymnastics for sure.

      I would give your daughter 1/3rd of the dosage that you are taking, that is assuming you’re both within a normal weight. I would do that for the binder as well. Start low to note her reactions. You can also gradually increase the dose if she seems to be handling it. GI Detox, Pectasol-C, HM Complex and zeolite are all binders you could look into. They can all be found in powder form. I hope that helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.
