Parasites in the human body: symptoms

Hello everyone, dear readers! Today the subject will be slippery and not very pleasant, but very relevant. I decided to dedicate it to the parasites, which are frequent “inhabitants” of our organisms. Imagine that there is a stormy life going on in your blood, intestines, under your skin now. B-rr! Someone will shudder at the thought.

But today it is scientifically proven that half of the planet's inhabitants are carriers of worms, of which there are about 200 species and "races". That is, theoretically, you also fall into the risk group. We donate tests, you know, not so often. We live for ourselves, we go to work, we go to cafes and cinemas, and we seem to be doing well. . .

Wait. It's all right? And does chronic fatigue and a strange wet cough that doesn't go on for months bother, diarrhea and constipation and other disruptions in the gastrointestinal tract? It's the same! But this is one of the signs of the presence of worms. Parasites in the human body cause a variety of symptoms. I also tried to summarize them in today's publication.

Long, round, flat and others

What human parasites do you know? Worms? Instead, it is its generalized name. But the varieties are a big, slippery lump. Let's take it apart so we know who we're going to fight with.

Helminths under the microscope
  • Roundworms that live in the digestive system are the largest group. These include roundworms, side scrapers, whipworms, pinworms and a few others. Your photos can be viewed on the Internet "in stock". They come to us because of their notorious unwashed hands, as well as dirty and unprocessed fruits and vegetables, undercooked meats and fish. If you have a cat or dog at home, the likelihood of worms will be much higher.
  • The second type are tapeworms: broad tapeworms, echinococci, pork and bovine tapeworms. These helminths are much larger than the previous ones. Some of the wide tapeworms can be over 25 meters long! These worms can eat with the whole body, absorbing the substances they need inside you with their surface. They do not have a certain territory of residence in the body, since they move freely throughout the body, also crawling in the brain and bone marrow. You can get infected by eating undercooked meat or undercooked fish. That is why I never buy these products in spontaneous, "off-the-shelf" markets, because the salespeople at these points of sale have clearly not heard of any veterinary checks.
  • Subcutaneous parasites (filamentous nematode, heartworm) live under human skin. You can catch them in hot countries, for example, in Africa or India, from flies, mosquitoes or bed bugs. They are often visible: on the skin, you will see a strange bump that, if pressed, will slide off the finger.
  • Worm worms: fascilopsis, hepatic worm and others. Its habitat is the intestine, the liver, the pancreas. The source is unboiled contaminated water, lightly salted, raw and undercooked fish.
  • Fabric worms. They are located and are parasites in various tissues of our body, in the muscles, in the brain, in the connective tissues. You can catch the infection from wild and domestic animals: pigs, cats, horses, ducks and chickens.

Parasites in the human body: symptoms

Theoretically, each of the above types can make their attacks invisible from the inside at this point, and you don't even know it. Many live with worms inside and literally allow them to devour each other for several years, until an accidental analysis or physical examination by the doctor finds their eggs in their analysis. These are silent pests that not only feed on you, but also have time to multiply and release toxins.

I wanted to get a test coupon right away, right? But first, check for the indirect signs of your presence. Just don't panic right away and don't diagnose yourself. Many of these symptoms overlap with other medical conditions.
So, you probably have worms if:

  1. Suddenly, you are anemic. Have previously normal hemoglobin counts dropped significantly? This may indicate that it is the helminths that steal the iron from you.
  2. You usually feel bad for no reason and have strange abdominal pains. A detailed ultrasound examination in infected patients reveals many microcracks, ulcers, wounds in the intestinal mucosa and other organs. This can cause inflammation and pain.
  3. Now diarrhea, now constipation. Do you eat normally and the nature of bowel movements has changed noticeably? Constipation can be caused by giant worms or small worms that curl into a ball. They, like a cork, close the exit to the stool. Well, diarrhea is caused by microelminths, which destroy sodium and chlorides, which are responsible for the normal consistency of the stools, diluting them.
  4. Breaks the body, bones and joints. The worms can cause inflammation in the periarticular muscles and, as a result, discomfort.
  5. Acne, eczema, warts and other skin problems, as well as the deterioration of nails and hair, are caused by toxins released by parasites. The liver cannot process so many harmful substances that affect the skin and hair.
  6. Excessive thinness or rapid weight gain. Worms take many useful substances from us, losing them - we lose a lot of weight, but they also eat sugar - and due to their lack, we sometimes eat a snack and put on weight.
  7. Gas release and swollen stomach.
  8. Gnashing of teeth. They say that this is one of the most obvious signs, because in a dream, our body is relaxed and asleep, and the worms do not sleep, so an unconscious reaction arises - clenching teeth and grinding teeth.
  9. Insufficient immunity. Its decrease is due to the fact that the body has already launched all its defenses against parasites and simply has no strength left for other viruses coming from outside.
  10. Drowsiness, lethargy, apathy and irritability with normal eating and rest. Worms shamelessly steal from us almost all the minerals and nutrients we need: potassium, magnesium, iron, calcium. The lack of them affects the nervous system and well-being.
  11. Itching. It usually intensifies at night, when the worms accumulate in the anus to lay eggs. Doctors say it is at night that we can find the worm "face to face", picking it up in its dirty business.
  12. Incomprehensible cough without a cold.

Well, did you find 4-5 symptoms? To be honest, neither am I. And that means just one thing - it's time to go to the hospital to see a therapist, infectious disease specialist, immunologist or parasitologist. After a detailed examination, the necessary drugs will be prescribed.

Parasites in the human body: expulsion

Be prepared for your whole family to be treated. The rest of your home may also be infected, as parasites are quickly transmitted through personal hygiene items, household items and dishes.

Although all worm medications are sold in pharmacies free of charge and without a prescription, it is not necessary to choose them in person. Some of them work only on a certain type of worm and are completely useless against the others. In addition, these drugs have many contraindications.

Prophylaxis of the garlic parasite

Treatment with folk remedies, which were used by our grandmothers, when there were no pills and pharmacies, is also common.
Now, doctors recommend combining this home treatment with medical prescriptions, so we use all the herbs described below for prevention only.

  • The fennel infusion is good to add to a hot bath. After sitting on it for about half an hour, you will get rid of a small handful of worms. They simply cannot stand the strong smell of this herb penetrating your skin, but you will have to put up with it for a while.
  • Sorrel kills parasites with its acid. So feel free to chew the washed leaves in spring and summer.
  • Common raw pumpkin seeds are excellent helminths.
  • Pumpkin seeds to remove parasites from the body
  • Drink infused oak bark (200 ml - 2 tablespoons).
  • Tansy also has a good anti-interference effect. To prepare the broth, pour a tablespoon of your flowers with a glass of boiling water and insist on a closed thermos for 4 hours. Take a curative mixture, previously filtered, 1 tbsp. spoon 4 times a day before meals.
  • Eat more garlic, onion and horseradish. For worms, their pungent smells of death are similar, and at the same time, you will correct your shattered immunity.

Don't think that one fine day all parasites will leave your body in a friendly formation of their own free will. They will live inside you and feed on you for a long time, so it is best to start expelling them now, otherwise, in a few years you will have gray skin, dirt, brittle hair, digestive problems and deficiency of all useful minerals. They will eat you alive, so don't let them do it!
