In the body, in addition to the spiritual essence, there are a number of other life forms that do not always favor human life. It is accepted to be shy when it comes to the hard-hitting forms of life that are neighboring with us. There are parasites that poison our body, living side by side in it and multiplying.
We will try to answer this question, which worries everyone.
To understand what it is, you need to determine how worms arise and how to treat them:
- they enter the human body because it becomes infected with lower multicellular organisms, parasitic worms, through the external environment;
- parasites, or helminths, are found in insects, fungi and plants, as well as in vertebrates;
- helminths in Russia are found in 60% of the population, but this is not the worst thing, because in people of Asian origin, laboratory diagnostics doctors find 100% infection with various forms of helminths.

Symptoms of the disease
From the very beginning, you need to make sure that a person has worms by external signs. To do this, you need to know the symptoms of infection, which are as follows:
- acne on the skin;
- weight and its changes with increased appetite;
- unstable stools;
- bad breath, increased gas production and belching;
- headaches and irritability;
- uncharacteristic smell of feces and urine;
- inflammation of the lymph nodes;
- attacks of choking and coughing;
- weakness and fatigue;
- the release of parts of helminths in the feces;
- itching in the anus.
Types of parasites in humans
To know what to treat, it is important to understand what kind of parasite in adults we are dealing with. There are a number of types of helminthic invasions, which differ in both symptoms and effects on the human body.
The following types of parasites exist:
- pinworms, itching in the anus, is a sign of infection with small roundworms;
- trichinella, enter the muscle mass through the vessels and cause swelling and pain;
- whipworm, a source of problems with the gastrointestinal tract;
- tapeworms, various types of tapeworms of great length;
- roundworms, rather long, round worms that cause problems with the airways and bile ducts.
All types of these invasions are associated with the use of insufficiently thermally processed food and with non-compliance with hygiene rules. The presence of pets also often leads to infestation with parasites.
The attending physician who has found symptoms of damage to the body must confirm the diagnosis using laboratory tests. For this, scrapings from the anal area, feces tests for worm eggs, enzyme immunoassay, endoscopy and ultrasound are used.
People who want to get healing from a pesky problem choose either medication or traditional medicine. It should be noted that the combined treatment of worms will also be effective, after consultation with the observing doctor.
In itself, the presence of worms in an adult is not a diagnosis of a complex disease, and it is not the body that needs to be treated, but parasites that interfere with its normal functioning should be removed from it.
Therefore, drugs for worms are aimed at suppressing their vital functions or the ability to absorb nutrients, which leads to their death.
According to this principle, they are divided into the following types:
- in the muscle tissue of parasites, the drug blocks nerve impulses;
- do not allow the absorption of glucose, which leads to the death of parasites;
- blocks the intestines of worms;
- affect the ability to move.
In addition, drugs are broadly targeted, and narrowly targeted to a specific type of parasite. Based on experience, treatment methods and laboratory test results, the attending physician chooses a specific medication for each case.
Extended-action antiparasitic medicines are used to interrupt their growth by blocking metabolic processes. These include Vermox and Nemozol or their analogues.
In addition to drugs for worms, agents are used that eliminate the allergic reactions of the body in the treatment of invasions. They allow to reduce the general intoxication of the body while eliminating worms in adults, and are aimed at reducing symptomatic phenomena. Medicines for the treatment of a patient, as well as the procedure for taking them, are selected by the doctor on an individual basis, taking into account the process of the course of helminthiasis.
Medicines containing Mebendazole are used for enterobiasis and trichocephalus. Preparations that contain Diethylcarbamazine are suitable for the treatment of filariasis, including diseases of the organs of vision and lymph system. Medicines containing Levamisole are used for ankylostomiasis and ascariasis. Befenia hydroxynaphthoate is used against round worms. And piperazine adipate has a good effect on roundworm and enterobiasis.
Tablet preparations containing Albendazole bring relief from echinococcus and cysticercosis. Praziquantel is successfully used for cestodosis. In difficult cases of helminthiasis, therapy is carried out using: hemodesis, glucose solutions. Cordiamine is used for high blood pressure.
Drug treatment, with all its effectiveness, also has side effects. There are people for whom medications are contraindicated.
For this case, we will consider non-drug methods of treatment, namely:
- oxygen treatment;
- alcohol-based treatment.
The reason for the infection with helminths, according to the followers of this teaching, is the lack of hygiene and purity of thoughts. Unclean, evil thoughts, laziness and despondency are the reasons for lowering the body's resistance to external influences.
Exercises that saturate the human body with cosmic energy help maintain health and find inner balance. At the same time, it is important to cleanse the body of toxins with the help of laxative decoctions, and then use hot spices and decoctions with food. Thyme, wormwood and St. John's wort will be very useful. After a week, you can repeat the laxative decoctions again so that the parasites leave your body.
Oxygen treatment has long been known as a way to expel helminths from the human body. The essence of the process is that a special tube is inserted into the esophagus and oxygen is pumped through it. This procedure is repeated over several days and helps to expel the parasites while saturating the cells of the gastrointestinal tract with oxygen.
For this, ozone therapy is used, but a tube is inserted into the anus and an ozone-oxygen mixture is supplied, which acts on parasites in a paralyzing manner. It is also possible to use enemas with olive oil and ozone. These treatments are very effective in getting rid of worms.
For an alternative treatment, use a mixture of cognac and tea in equal proportions, drinking on an empty stomach with a laxative. A large tablespoon of cognac is drunk within five days, and after ten days a second course is carried out.
A good remedy for helminths is vodka, with heads of garlic infused in it. It is applied in a large tablespoon for ten days.
Folk remedies and methods of treatment
Folk wisdom teaches us to use natural remedies in the battle with worms in adults. It is difficult to overestimate their diversity and benefits. Pumpkin and flaxseeds, which are taken together with laxatives, are of good help in the fight against parasites.
Decoctions and infusions of bitter wormwood have proven themselves very well. Garlic and onions not only help with colds, but also have a positive effect in the fight against parasites. A decoction of pomegranate peel has also proven itself well as an anthelmintic.
You can use enemas with black cumin oil or baking soda, and castor oil. It should be noted that by combining alternative methods of treatment, you can achieve a greater effect. But it is better not to get infected and keep your personal space clean.
How to avoid infection with worms
Try to eat only washed vegetables, herbs, fruits and berries. Heat the meat or fish for at least 40-60 minutes. Pets should be constantly treated for worms, in consultation with a veterinarian.
