Treatment and prevention of parasites in the human body

Parasitesare the simplest types of bacteria that live off the nutrients of another organism, parasitizing on it. They feed on ready-made organic matter produced by others.

Currently, there are more than twenty species of parasitic life forms that can inhabit the body of animals or humans.

All of them can enter our body and cause a large number of diseases and infections. Very often, such bacteria are found in children, since they do not have such a high level of immunity, while they are in a lot of contact with animals and some dirty things.

Remember that a small child often takes everything in his mouth?

These items can carry dangerous vermin. This article provides a classification of parasites in the human body, how to treat infectious diseases, and what it takes to prevent harmful bacteria from entering your body.

Parasitic bacteria in the human body, in which organs can they live?

parasites in the human body

In the human body and on its skin are the simplest bacteria, they can be unicellular and multicellular.

Parasites that inhabit the body are called ectoparasites. This type includes bed bugs, lice and similar pathogens of scabies. Others are called endoparasites because they live inside the human body. These include amoeba, worms, and insect larvae.

The latter are the most dangerous, while the former are simply unpleasant.

Internal parasites often cause serious diseases and are more difficult to get rid of than external ones. Medicine has already found many ways to get rid of them, and also has extensive experience in the treatment of parasites in the human body.

Each of the parasites has its ideal place in the human body, where they have all the conditions for a parasitic lifestyle, that is, the necessary nutrients for growth and reproduction. Some of them can move as they grow.

Endogenous parasites are most commonly found in the intestines, muscles, blood, lungs, heart, and liver. Some species even live in nerve tissues. Ectogenic parasites live on the skin.

How can parasites enter the body?

ways of infection with parasites

The first methodis the ingestion of bacteria into the body with food and water. Sometimes it is contaminated or contaminated, so microorganisms begin to multiply there. Insects such as flies and cockroaches also carry many harmful bacteria. Some foods are initially contaminated - raw fish or unprocessed meat. Very often livestock meat is infected with parasites, so a person does not eat it raw.

Second- contact household. In this case, parasites are transmitted from humans, through household items or animals. Very often, infectious bacteria are carried by outdoor animals - dogs, cats, birds and rats.

Third- transmission through the blood by mosquitoes. In our country and many other regions, this rarely happens, most often infected mosquitoes live in hot countries.
The fourth is the independent entry of some insects into the human body. They gnaw through the skin and invade muscle tissue or blood, and then go to where the best living conditions are for them.

What are the symptoms of parasites?

how parasites affect human organs

Parasites in the human body can cause completely different symptoms - from insomnia, which is often imperceptible, to skin lesions. For example, ectoparasites often cause skin damage and scabies. Endoparasites in the lungs often cause coughing. When found in the intestines, you may be concerned about constipation, vomiting, or diarrhea.

But the general signs of the presence of parasites in humans are as follows: insomnia, general fatigue, headaches, and sometimes allergic reactions. Very often, people use folk remedies, but they are not always pleasant, for example, not everyone can drink a glass of sauerkraut juice with worms.

Consider the symptoms in the presence of different types of parasites:

  • The most common parasites for humans are worms or roundworms. They cause intestinal upset and stomach pain, irritability, insomnia and anxiety attacks, and sometimes dizziness. Detecting them is quite simple, they can be seen in feces or get a positive test result on an egg worm;
  • Next comes a rather dangerous parasite - tapeworm. It often causes discomfort or pain in the abdomen, diarrhea, a brutal appetite (you eat a lot, but you do not increase your weight), pain in the liver and the presence of worms in its feces;
  • if a person has pinworms, he may notice loss of appetite, insomnia, nervousness and itching in the anus.

Why are parasites dangerous?

They disrupt the functioning of organs, cause inflammation in tissues and destroy them. Produce toxic substances that destroy the body.

A pest that parasitizes you can cause a lack of vitamins, a general weakening and a decrease in immunity in both adults and children. The presence of such a parasite in children is very dangerous, since they greatly slow down their development. Very often it is difficult to get rid of parasites in the body, since they tend to adapt to their environment and do not want to leave their usual home.

Another way to cure people with parasites has appeared in the modern world. It is called oxygen and appeared relatively recently; it is performed only in hospitals under the supervision of a doctor. First, the patient is cleansed of the intestines using an enema, then oxygen is injected by a probe method. Once the stomach and rectum are filled with oxygen, the parasites die. With this method, the cured patient does not receive any side symptoms, in contrast to the drug method.

Diet for the prevention of parasites

diet for parasites

Everyone who has ever encountered parasites knows how important rehabilitation and prevention are. For this, the attending physician often prescribes a special diet. Separate meals are recommended, when you eat carbohydrates and proteins separately from each other. Because if we eat them together, the stomach does not receive an exact signal what will need to be digested and what enzymes are needed for this.

Under-digested food is a great food for parasites, so they continue to live and develop.

For example, meat, legumes cannot be eaten with potatoes, pasta or bread. Better to combine them with vegetables. If you want to eat carbohydrates and proteins, you should take a 2 hour break between taking them.

Take 15 nuts, remove the green peel from them and cover with vodka. Leave to infuse for a month, in a dark, dry place. Then dilute one drop of the tincture in a half glass of water and drink.

Gradually increase dosage by a drop each day for seven days. After that, also gradually increase the intake to 2 x teaspoons, take the medicine a couple of times a day. Continue taking 2 teaspoons of the tincture twice a day throughout the year. This is a fairly long course of cleansing, but very effective.

An easier way is to use carnation seeds. They need to be ground to a powder state. Just take one and a half teaspoon of this powder at a time. Over the course of ten days, gradually reduce the dosage, at the end of the period you should reach one teaspoon.

Various fresh juices will help to cleanse the intestines. For example, carrot, cucumber, lemon, beetroot, apple - all these juices, when consumed on an empty stomach, create a certain environment in the stomach and remove parasites from the body.
