The idea that a parasite lives in your body is very scary, but you are not alone; parasites are much more widespread than you think. The myth is the statement that only the population of underdeveloped countries suffers from parasites.
Parasites are found in most patients of the average clinic. From this article you will learn that the presence of parasites in the body is manifested through a huge number of different symptoms, only a few of which are associated with digestion.
What is a parasite?
A parasite is any organism that lives in another organism and feeds on it. Intestinal parasites are understood as tiny organisms, usually worms, that feed on what you eat.
[blockquote_fact] Examples of parasites are trichophytosis, tapeworms, pinworms, trichocephals, hookworms, and many others. Due to the fact that parasites differ in a large number of shapes and sizes, they can cause very different problems. [/ Blockquote_fact]
Some eat your food, leaving you hungry after every meal and not letting you gain weight. Others feed on the red blood cells of your blood, causing anemia. Some lay eggs that cause itching, irritability, and even insomnia. If you tried to cure your intestines in a thousand ways and tried unsuccessfully to get rid of the symptoms, parasites can be the main cause of most of these unexplained and intractable symptoms.
10 reasons why parasites may live in your body:
- You suffer from constipation, diarrhea, gas, or other symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.
- You have traveled the world, and remember that you had travelers diarrhea abroad.
- You have a history of food poisoning, and since then your digestion has changed.
- You have difficulty falling asleep, or you wake up many times a night.
- You have irritations, unexplained rashes, hives, acne rosacea or eczema on your skin.
- You grit your teeth in a dream.
- You have sore or aching muscles or joints.
- You feel overworked, you have depression or frequent bouts of apathy.
- After eating you never gorge and feel no satisfaction.
- You have been diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia.
Symptoms of the presence of parasites in the body can often seem incoherent and inexplicable. As noted earlier, there are a large number of species of parasites to which the human body is exposed.
[blockquote_fact] Most often, parasites in the body lead to constipation rather than diarrhea, but some of them can change the fluid balance in your intestines, thereby causing diarrhea. [/ blockquote_fact]
Sleep problems, skin irritation, mood changes and muscle pain can be caused by toxins that parasites release into the bloodstream. These toxins often cause anxiety, which can manifest itself in various forms.
For example, you often wake up in the middle of the night or hold your teeth together in your sleep — these are signs that your body is in a state of anxiety while you are resting.
When the aforementioned toxins interact with your neurotransmitters or blood cells, they can lead to a change in mood or irritation of the skin.
How to check for the presence of parasites
The best way to test for parasites – to pass a stool test. Most doctors, in case of suspicion of parasites, will prescribe a standard stool test, but such tests are not as accurate as the deployed functional disorders used in medicine.
Standard tests of feces on eggs of worms and parasites
Standard feces can detect parasites or their eggs, but such tests are largely limited. The problem with these tests is that they are only conditionally effective. They require three separate stool specimens, which are sent to the laboratory, where the pathologist examines them under a microscope. The life cycle of parasites is unique – it allows them to be in an intermediate state between hibernation and functioning.
[blockquote_fact] To detect parasites during standard tests, a stool sample must contain a live parasite, the parasite must remain alive until the sample is delivered to the laboratory, and then the pathologist must see the live parasite in a microscope. [/ blockquote_fact]
While for some this type of analysis may be important, they do not reveal sleeping parasites, and for this reason this type of analysis of feces often gives an erroneous negative result.
A detailed analysis of feces, used in medicine, functional disorders.
The detailed analysis is much more accurate than the standard fecal analysis, due to the fact that it uses the technology of polymerase chain reaction (PCR), which makes the parasite’s DNA more noticeable. This means that the parasite may be dead, or be dormant, but during this analysis it will still be detected.
[blockquote_fact] Since PCR technology is used in this analysis, its success does not depend on the ability of the pathologist to see the parasite in the microscope. Quite often is the diagnosis of the parasite in a patient, a standard analysis of feces which did not reveal the pest. [/ Blockquote_fact]
How to cure parasites
An extensive analysis of feces is able to identify 17 different parasites, so when the doctor finds out what kind of pest is in the patient’s body, he prescribes those drugs that are aimed at destroying a certain type of parasites.
[blockquote_fact] However, if the parasite cannot be detected, the doctor may prescribe a mixture of medicinal herbs to the patient, including magnesia with caprylic acid, barberin, extracts of anchorites, wormwood, grapefruit, barberry, bearberry, and black walnut. [/ blockquote_fact]
Usually these ingredients can be found in the pharmacy. Through the formation of beneficial intestinal bacteria, these herbal formulas provide a wide range of actions to combat the most common pathogenic microorganisms found in the human gastrointestinal tract.
Before starting the fight against parasites with the help of herbs, it is recommended to consult with your doctor, and, in case of previous liver diseases, excessive alcohol consumption, or a previously increased level of liver enzymes, you should check their level again.
If you are suspicious of a parasite in your body, you should consult your doctor so that he can give you a detailed analysis of feces. After all, it all begins in the intestines, and the intestines – the path to health. A healthy intestine is a healthy person.
