Parasites continue to pose a serious threat. So you need to know the possible ways to deal with them, as well as a list of medications that will become helpers in this process.
The human body is the whole world that is attacked by the environment and the microorganisms that inhabit it. Not everyone is helpful or neutral in relation to a person. About 95% of people sooner or later encounter aggressive parasites (fungi, earthworms). These organisms can cause significant damage when they enter a person, so it is extremely important that you get rid of them as soon as possible. Helminths live and reproduce using a person’s internal resources, and sometimes just a few signs can indicate their presence in the body. But the worst thing is that they can cause the death of their carrier. Not surprisingly, the question of how to get rid of parasites in the body does not lose its importance.
Specificity of drug therapy
You can get rid of parasites with medicines or folk methods. However, traditional medicine strongly recommends the use of the latter only as a means of preventing the occurrence of pests or in combination with drug therapy. Otherwise, you may feel worsening of the disease or its serious complications.
Medicines are still a much more productive means of fighting parasites, but they are quite toxic, so they can only be taken on the advice of a doctor.
Even treatment with parasite drugs is not an easy task and it is unlikely that it will be possible to save a person from such an unpleasant neighborhood very quickly. In fact, all anthelmintic tablets are characterized by a complex action, the mechanisms of which are not fully understood.
In addition, in recent years, the problem of parasite resistance to them has become quite serious. And as residents of third world countries mostly deal with such problems, the percentage of medical innovations in this area is, unfortunately, small. However, innovative drugs can be considered the most effective.
It is important to consider that antiparasitic drugs should not be used for viral and somatic diseases, as well as for intestinal infections. Such treatment is also prohibited during childbirth and breastfeeding. Pests that have occupied the human body are divided into 3 subgroups:
Based on which group of pests it belongs to, drug therapy is prescribed. This is partly why it is so hard to get rid of them on your own without hurting yourself even more.
Preparing the body for therapy
An important period in the treatment is the course of the examination that precedes it. Passing various studies is the basis for choosing an effective method of drug therapy. However, it will be important to coordinate the patient’s diet in the right direction. Before carrying out the procedure of cleaning from parasites, it is better to switch to a healthy and balanced diet.
A vegetarian diet is considered ideal. However, in addition to animal products, it is better to forget about heavy, fatty foods, sugar and refined foods. It is recommended to follow a light and economical diet for two weeks for relief. Your body will be grateful if you enrich your diet with fruits, raw vegetables and freshly squeezed juices.
Also, special attention should be paid to your own drinking regime. It is important to consume only purified water. The average amount of water you drink should be at least 2 liters per day.
It is recommended to forget about soda, which previously cleanses the intestines, kidneys, liver. If a person infected with helminths, in addition, suffers from constipation, then it is better to start practicing enemas, for better further outcome of therapy. In these cases, herbal decoctions of tansy, wormwood and other herbs are usually used.
Choice of anthelmintic
Anthelmintic drugs with a certain degree of conventionality can be divided into 3 types:
- synthesized chemicals;
- plant-based substances;
- homeopathic preparations.
Of course, each of the groups will have its pros and cons. However, they all have one thing in common. All are aimed at creating conditions for parasites that are absolutely unsuitable for their life and reproduction. However, the course of therapy is usually long and can last as long as 1-2 months, or be extended to a whole year.
Chemicals guarantee a high degree of efficiency and show an effect after 1-2 months. However, such drugs are endowed with a high degree of toxicity, and therefore poison both parasites and the body. In addition, as a rule, the action of such a drug is effective only for 1-2 types of helminths.
Herbal preparations are herbal extracts or their preparations. Such "drugs" accumulate plant toxins in the body, which pests do not tolerate, and are forced to leave the human body because they can not adapt to them. In addition, such components increase the body's natural protective functions and are safe for it. However, the period of treatment with such means is quite long and can last up to a year.
Homeopathic remedies - such treatment is also long-lasting and includes a course of 3 months to a year. The effectiveness of such treatment is proportional to the qualifications of the homeopath, his ability to choose the right medicine for the patient. Otherwise, the effect of the treatment will be zero.
Preparations for helminths, as already mentioned, are prescribed by a doctor only after appropriate tests have been performed. In addition, when prescribing a drug, the personal characteristics of the person must be taken into account:
- its weight;
- the presence of allergies;
- intolerance to the components of the prescribed drug and other pathologies.
Furthermore, sensitive individual monitoring of the course of treatment is carried out.
Preparations for nematodes
This subgroup of parasites includes pinworms, roundworms, whips, Trichinella and Toxocara. However, the most common cases of infection are the first two categories of pests.
To counteract them, various drugs are effective, the expert will choose the appropriate one.
Extraintestinal pests in the body suggest a slightly different treatment. Ivermectin-based medications will help you get rid of them quickly. But it is very important to follow the instructions for the drug and conduct a second course of treatment. The fact is that these drugs act only on sexually mature individuals, but are not effective in combating their larvae and eggs.
In addition, after taking the medicine (preferably in the evening), it is recommended to make an cleansing enema and take a laxative. Such measures will significantly reduce the level of toxins in the body.
Medicines for cestodes
Although a significant number of parasites are attributed to cestodes, infection with bovine and broadband is most common. This is quite a difficult case, but it is still possible to get rid of such parasites by first considering the therapy carefully. Productive in the treatment of cestodes are special drugs prescribed by a specialist.
Preparations against trematodes and flukes
This huge group of parasites includes lung, Chinese, cat and liver flukes. This type of parasite is extremely dangerous in its effect on the human body and delayed therapy can cause serious consequences.
The range of medications is quite wide, but you should not experiment. Consult a doctor if you suspect the presence of helminths or if you feel unjustifiably worse.
