Parasites are organisms that live on the nutrients from another organism. They are bigger than bacteria or virus. Parasites and worms can bring a lot of problems with your health. They can affect various human organs such as the stomach, colon, liver, kidney, blood and in some bad cases, the brain. Parasites rest inside those organs and feed themselves with the food you eat or the blood you have. At the onset, they may not produce any symptoms but later on, they can suck up your energy levels and can make organs weaker. Luckily, there is a natural way to get rid of parasites.
Parasites – threats to internal organs
Parasites infestation could be primarily due to many diseases, illness and infections. Intestinal parasites can be cleansed off in a very efficient manner with the help of some natural therapies. They are caused by two main types namely; protozoa or helminths.
Common symptoms of parasite infestation include diarrhea, flatulence or bloating, vomiting or nausea, abdominal pain, disturbed digestion and fatigue or weakness. In children, significant weight loss without any other symptoms indicates worms or parasites’ infestation. They also produce typical symptoms such as itching around the anus, redness around the anus, polyphagia (overeating, excess hunger), etc.
Natural way to get rid of parasites
Colon cleansing is the most effective treatment for intestinal cleansing that can get all the parasites out of our body. Generally, such cleansing includes the use of a high fiber or supplements such as Psyllium husks, citrus pectin, garlic, pumpkin (preferably seeds), ripe papaya extract, activated charcoal, beetroot and linseeds, and rough diet. However, no clinical data favors these anti-parasite treatments. They are very efficient since they are still prescribed in alternative medicines.
Ginger & Garlic
Ginger and Garlic have been found very useful in Ascaris (roundworm), Giardia lamblia, Plasmodium, and Leishmania infestations. One can go for any formula containing garlic or can eat raw garlic pods. Another colon cleansing herb includes goldenseal (Hydrastis Canadensis). The herb has been prescribed historically for worm infestations and even to cure infections for the mucous membranes available in various human tracts like gastrointestinal, respiratory etc.
Ayurvedic tradition believes that neem is a great herb for eliminating worms or parasites. A simple decoction of the Neem leaves taken early in the morning for about 15-30 days can kill all the parasites present in the intestines. This is because Neem contains some volatile substances that are suitable for the intestines of humans but poisonous to the parasites.
