Before thinking about how to get rid of parasites in the body, it is worth doing tests to confirm the presence of invaders and identify their type. After all, any treatment can have side effects, which means the treatment should be directional, not meaningless.
Types of parasites
The most common parasites in humans are:
- round worms (roundworms, pinworms);
- Flatworms (tapeworms, tapeworms, echinococcus);
- Protozoa (amoeba, lamblia, chlamydia, trichomonas, toxoplasmosis);
The most common worms (parasitic worms) in humans are pinworms and roundworms. Most often, children suffer from enterobiasis (a disease caused by the presence of pinworms in the body) and Ascaris infection, since the eggs of these parasites enter the body mainly through dirty hands. In the presence of pinworms or roundworms in a family member, as a rule, all members of the household become infected.
Among the protozoa, Giardia is the most common. They also get into the body due to poor hand hygiene.
Symptoms of parasite infestation
The most obvious symptoms of human infection with parasitic organisms:
- Constipation or diarrhea, gas;
- Pain in muscles and joints;
- allergic manifestations, rashes, acne, or eczema;
- Obesity or excessive weight loss;
- Sleep disorder, chronic fatigue;
- a sharp decrease in immunity.
How to get rid of parasites
In medicine, there are a large number of drugs that are aimed at removing various parasites from the human body. The most famous and widely used are the following remedies against parasites in the human body:
- Roundworm drugs;
- Tapeworm drugs;
- Tablets for flatworms.
Any drug against parasites in the human body is aimed at a specific type of parasitic organism and can only be prescribed by a specialist, having carried out the necessary tests to identify a specific type of parasite. In addition, some drugs used to treat severe infections are only taken in a hospital under the supervision of a doctor.
All drugs aimed at clearing the body of parasites act mainly only on their adults, while such pills do not kill eggs. Therefore, taking such drugs should usually be repeated a few weeks after the first dose. The dosage and route of administration are strictly prescribed by the doctor and have significant differences between adults and children (in addition, a number of drugs are not allowed in childhood).
Antiparasitic drugs are very effective, but they have one major drawback - they are toxic and have many side effects. Therefore, they can only be prescribed by a doctor to adults and children.
The main side effects of parasite tablets are:
- Nausea and vomiting;
- painful sensations in the abdomen;
- Headache, dizziness, confusion;
- impaired coordination of movements;
- impaired liver and kidney function, kidney failure;
- Numbness or trembling of the limbs;
- quick fatigue;
- Sleep disorder;
- Skin dermatitis.
Each drug has its own contraindications that cannot be neglected. The doctor must take into account the general condition of the patient before prescribing this or that remedy.
Medical treatment for parasites is complex, that is, one can not limit oneself to taking antiparasitic drugs, because along with them it is necessary to drink drugs that are designed to protect the liver, improve bile secretion, cleanse the intestines and strengthen immunity. In addition, you will need antihistamines and drugs that reduce the toxic effects.
How to get rid of parasites in the body using folk remedies
Traditional medicine is a worthy substitute for medicinal antiparasitic drugs. The most effective products in the fight against parasites are:
- Clove seeds;
How to take vermouth
To combat parasites, dried wormwood fruits must be taken in powder form 6 days before meals. In this case, the course must be started with a pinch and gradually brought to ½ teaspoon by day 6. Then you should take half a teaspoon of wormwood powder once a week until it is completely rid of parasitic organisms.
Scheme for obtaining clove seeds
Cloves are a spice that is used in cooking. Its burning properties increase immunity and destroy various parasites. To use this spice as a medicinal product, you need to take it before meals three times a day. On the first day you need to take 1/5 teaspoon, on the second - ¼ from the 3rd to the 10th - 1/3 teaspoon. Next - a full spoon until full recovery.
Walnuts for parasites
To prepare a tincture of walnuts, about 15 ripe fruits must be finely chopped, then 0. 5 liters of alcohol poured into it and left in a place protected from light for 20 days. After the tincture is ready, it must be taken on an empty stomach. On the first day, you need to take 1 drop of the resulting drug, having previously dissolved it in half a glass of water. Every day you need to add 1 drop for 5 days. On the 6th day you should drink 2 teaspoons dissolved in a glass of water.
The effects of these folk remedies will be more effective if you combine their use.
Fasting is, among other things, an effective tool in the fight against parasites. However, this method can be used with great care, as prolonged fasting can have an extremely negative effect on the general state of human health and undermine metabolism.
It should be remembered that cleaning the body from parasites using folk remedies, including fasting, should be agreed with the doctor in order to avoid undesirable side effects.
