If just the thought of having disgusting parasites in your body totally scares you, imagine how you would feel if you found that you have them in your belly!

More common than you think, many people suffer from parasitic infections without being aware of it. As alarming as it may seem, the truth is, these microorganisms that live and feed on other organisms are common all over the world and not just in underdeveloped countries.

According to studies, at least 90 percent of the human population would have had intestinal parasites at some point in their lives. And though the causes of parasitic infestation may be known to many people, identifying and understanding its symptoms and even the most effective natural remedies to get rid of these awful parasites is as crucial.



Read on and determine how to identify them and how you can naturally remove them

Causes of Parasitic Infections

Some of the most common parasites that can infest your body are tapeworms, hookworms, pinworms, lamblia Trichinella, and Dientamoeba Fragilis. Usually lingering unseen in many places, these parasites are classified into groups as to how they affect the body.

The most common reason for parasitic infestation is the carrier’s poor hygienic practices and unhealthy lifestyle – ranging from extreme or frequent exposure to places where parasites are existent, poor sanitation and hygiene to weak immune system.

Signs and Symptoms of Parasite Overgrowth

Once infected, you become a host to these parasites. And if left untreated, these microorganisms can rapidly and abundantly multiply. Having said that, here are some of the most common signs and symptoms that may be directly or indirectly associated with parasitic infection.

Although parasites can exist in your body without showing any symptoms, not everyone with a parasitic infection will be free of all indicators, most of them will experience at least one or worse, all of the following:

  • Recurring diarrhea or constipation
  • Chronic, unexplained nausea and dizziness
  • Intestinal cramping
  • Multiple food allergies
  • Continual skin diseases
  • Fatigue and weakness
  • Foul-smelling gas
  • Digestive and reproductive issues
  • Bloating and stomachache
  • Muscle and joint pains
  • Loss of appetite
  • Weight problems
  • Sleep disturbances (insomnia, teeth grinding, bedwetting, and multiple awakenings)
  • Itching around the anus (especially at night) as well as on the soles of the feet
  • Tingling sensations on the scalp
  • Mood and anxiety disorders or mental distress
  • Chronic viral or bacterial indicators

Other warning signs may include fever, poor immune system, bad breath, excessive saliva, unclear vision, respiratory and peritonitis symptoms.

As you can see, some of the parasitic infestation indicators may be very common and supposedly may not require immediate attention but it shouldn’t be the case. They should, in fact, be taken seriously to regain optimum health.

How to Naturally Eliminate These Parasites

Now, if you suspect you might have a parasitic infection, you better consult your physician for proper diagnosis and treatment. However, the good thing is that nature has its own way to help you get rid of these gross parasites.

These conventional or alternative treatments can do the job without causing much side effects compared to other medical options. Hence, you may try any of these to help you combat these nasty parasites.



Eat More Herbs, Fruits, and Vegetables

Most commonly prescribed herbal treatments are raw garlic, wormseed, black walnuts, red onions, turmeric, oregano, neem, goldenseal, barberry, anise, Oregon grape root, peppermint, wormwood, rosemary, thyme, aloe vera, olive leaf, fermented vegetables, and even apple cider vinegar.

Eating papaya and pumpkin seeds, carrots, beets, pineapple, pomegranates and honey can all kill parasites.

Change Your Diet

Eliminate sweetened juices, sugary and refined foods, grains, dairy, and alcohol for at least a month while consuming sufficient amounts of foods and herbs (as cited above). Doing this ensures that you starve the parasites to death by not feeding them.

Resistance to parasites can even be heightened if you include ample amounts of squash and sweet potatoes in your diet. More so, drinking lots of clean, purified or distilled water aids in flushing them out of the system.

Keep Your Digestive Tract Healthy

One of the most effective ways to do this is to cast down parasites by adding Probiotics (Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillusplantarum, Saccharomyces boulardii, and bifidobacteria) in your diet.

Likewise, digestive enzymes promote the restoration of intestinal tract back to its normal state – making your system hostile to parasites.

For one, Papain is an enzyme from the papaya plant that may help exterminate parasites especially worms when taken 30 minutes before or after meals.

Conclusion

Parasitic infections may be more serious than you think. So, to get rid of them as well as associated complications, make sure you take symptoms seriously and undertake several medical and naturopathic treatments.

Prevention is always better than cure; especially when it comes to parasitic infections so remember to adopt a healthier lifestyle – promoting proper sanitary and hygienic practices.
