Parasites are the simplest types of bacteria that live from the nutrients of another organism, parasitizing on it. They feed on ready-made organic substances produced by others.
There are currently more than twenty species of parasitic life forms that can live in the bodies 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, because they do not have such a high immunity, and they have a lot of contact with animals and some dirty things.
Do you remember that a small child often takes everything in his mouth?
These items may contain dangerous parasites. This article gives a classification of parasites in the human body, how to treat infectious diseases and what you need to do to prevent harmful bacteria from entering your body.
Parasitic bacteria in the human body, in which organs can they live?
The simplest bacteria are found in the human body and on its skin, they can be unicellular or multicellular.
Parasites that live on the body are called ectoparasites. This species includes bed bugs, lice and similar scabies agents. Others are called endoparasites because they live in the human body. These include amoebae, worms and insect larvae.
The latter are the most dangerous, while the former are simply unpleasant.
Internal parasites often cause serious diseases and are harder to get rid of than external parasites. Medicine has already found many ways to get rid of them, and has extensive experience in treating 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 way of life, ie the necessary nutrients for growth and reproduction. Some of them can move as they grow.
Most often, endogenous parasites can be found in the intestines, muscles, blood, lungs, heart and liver. Some species even live in nervous tissue. Ectogenic parasites live on the skin.
How can parasites enter the body?
The first way is to introduce bacteria into the body through food and water. Sometimes it is infected or contaminated, so microorganisms start to multiply there. Insects like flies and cockroaches also carry many harmful bacteria. Some foods are initially contaminated - raw fish or raw meat. Very often the meat of cattle is infected with parasites, so the person does not eat it raw.
The other is contact household. In this case, the parasites are transmitted from humans, household items or animals. Infectious bacteria are often transmitted by street animals - dogs, cats, birds and rats.
The third is the transmission of blood through mosquitoes. In the CIS countries 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 bite the skin and penetrate into muscle tissue or blood, and then go where they have the best living conditions.
What are the symptoms of a parasite?
Parasites in the human body can cause completely different symptoms - from insomnia, which is often invisible, to skin formations. For example, ectoparasites often cause skin lesions and scabies. Endoparasites that live in the lungs often cause coughing. When they are in the intestines, you may suffer from 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 indigestion and abdominal pain, irritability, insomnia and anxiety attacks, and sometimes dizziness. Detecting them is simple enough, you can see them in the feces or get a positive worm egg test result;
- Then comes a rather dangerous parasite - tapeworm. It often causes discomfort or pain in the abdomen, diarrhea, brutal appetite (you eat a lot, but do not gain weight), pain in the liver and the presence of its worms in the feces;
- in the presence of pinworms in a person may notice loss of appetite, insomnia, nervousness and itching in the anus.
Why are parasites dangerous?
They disrupt the work of organs, cause inflammatory processes in tissues and destroy them. They produce toxic substances that destroy the body.
A pest that parasitizes on you can cause vitamin deficiencies, general weakening and reduced immunity in both adults and children. The presence of such a parasite in children is very dangerous, because it greatly slows down their development. It is very often difficult to get rid of parasites in the body, because they find it harder to adapt to their environment and do not want to leave their usual home.
How to treat parasites?
To get rid of parasites, you must first consult a doctor. He will prescribe a particular drug or another, more natural remedy.
There is also treatment with folk remedies, but it is recommended to be carried out in symbiosis with drugs.
Doctors have long found an effective treatment against parasites in humans.
Some medications come in tablet form, while others come in other forms, such as liquids. The dose is determined only by a doctor, it is not possible to do it alone without side effects. Also, medications have differences in the age of the patients for whom they are intended.
There is another way to treat parasites in the modern world. It is called oxygen and has appeared relatively recently, it is carried out only in hospitals under the supervision of a doctor. First, the patient's intestines are cleaned with an enema, and then oxygen is introduced by the probe method. After filling the stomach and rectum with oxygen, the parasites die. Unlike this method, the patient cured by this method does not get any side effects.
Parasites: rapid treatment with folk remedies
Various parasites in the human body can be removed by folk remedies, even some doctors recommend some natural remedies to get rid of such pests.
Pumpkin seeds are the most famous remedy for parasites. They contain many nutrients that are beneficial to humans and their intestinal microflora, but are harmful to protozoan pests. To completely heal, eat 20 grams of pumpkin seeds on an empty stomach in the morning, and later after 30-40 minutes drink a laxative.
Vegetable oils can be used as natural laxatives, and the most common is castor oil.
For the treatment of parasites folk remedies in adults are used anthelmintic teas, and after cleansing the intestines with an enema. To prepare the decoction, you can take wormwood, cloves, celandine or tansy. They all have a sharp and bitter taste, so they make the environment in the intestines unsuitable for pests.
However, watch out for the plants you use, many of them are forbidden to pregnant women.
Diet for parasite prevention
Anyone who has ever encountered the presence of parasites knows how important rehabilitation and prevention are. For this, the doctor 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 the exact signal of what needs to be digested and what enzymes are needed for that.
Incompletely digested food is a great way to feed on parasites, so they continue to live and thrive.
For example, meat, legumes should not be eaten with potatoes, pasta or bread. It is better to combine them with vegetables. If you want to eat carbohydrates and proteins, you should take a break of 2 hours between meals.
Can't give up your favorite sandwiches?
Eat them with grilled vegetables. Eat cereals often, they perfectly cleanse the body.
Cleansing the body
Some plants that can often be found in pharmacies, markets or supermarkets will help to cleanse and expel unwanted parasites from the body.
For the first method you will need green walnut peel. If you live in a hot area, you can certainly find walnut trees and collect unripe fruits from them. Take 15 nuts, remove the green rind from them and fill them with vodka. Leave to stand for a month, in a dark and dry place. Then dilute one drop of tincture in half a glass of water and drink.
Gradually increase the drop dose every day for seven days. After that, gradually increase the intake to 2 teaspoons, take the medicine several times a day. Then continue to take 2 teaspoons of tincture, twice a day, throughout the year. This is a fairly long cleaning process, but very effective.
An easier way is to use cloves. They need to be ground to a powder. Take only one and a half teaspoon of this powder. Gradually reduce the dose over ten days, at the end of the period you should reach one teaspoon.
A variety of freshly squeezed juices will help cleanse the bowels. For example, carrots, cucumbers, lemons, beets, apples - all these juices, when consumed on an empty stomach, create a certain environment in the stomach and remove parasites from the body.
