The number of parasites surrounding a person is comparable to that of viruses and bacteria. They enter the body through the mouth, skin, and respiratory tract. About a million cases of helminthiasis are detected every year. Most often, children get sick, due to the peculiarities of hygienic behavior and the lack of protective properties. Clearing them off is not a big problem. We will show you the most effective methods.
Methods of infection
As practice shows, a person is most often to blame for being infected with parasites. Swimming in dirty lakes or rivers, occasional cleaning in the apartment, poor personal hygiene and other factors can lead to health problems.
How the infection occurs depending on the type of parasite:
- opisthorchiasis(eating raw seafood);
- trichinosis(non-compliance with the technology of cooking meat dishes);
- Ascaris(eating unwashed fruits or vegetables);
- pinworm(contact with dusty bedding, stuffed animals or rugs);
- helminth(via pets or unwashed hands).
NoteIt is recommended that you conduct a routine check of the body for parasites. If you have not developed any symptoms, this does not mean that there are no parasites in your body. The fact is that some species can actively live with humans for several years.
Antiparasitic properties of soda
Baking soda enema. Before proceeding to the description of cleaning methods and the recommendations of doctors, we will study in more detail the characteristics of baking soda. The substance is able to maintain the acid-base balance, which is a breeding ground for parasites (which is why doctors often recommend drinking it for stomach upsets).
Sodium bicarbonate is the main product for the blood buffering system. Hence, a salty taste is felt in it. Baking soda neutralizes excess acid production in the body, and also activates internal alkaline reserves in internal organs. Therefore, you need to take the product internally, as well as perform cleansing procedures.
The use of soda solution is effective not only in the fight against worms, but also useful in restoring the working capacity of internal organs.
To date, soda enema has become very popular in the fight against worms, as it easily cleanses the intestines from toxins, fecal stones and toxic substances, it can be drunk, and can be used as a cleansing procedure. We'll talk about each of them below.
It is impossible to fully protect yourself from infection with worms. The eggs of the parasites are very small, so, unfortunately, it is impossible to notice them with the naked eye. Parasites can live on unwashed fruits and vegetables, money, doorknobs, and can be transmitted by contact with another person, for example, through a handshake. Even houseplants can contain worm eggs - these are the most common ways of worm infestation.
When infected, the patient may notice the following symptoms:
- itching or rash on the skin;
- problems with the functioning of the nervous system;
- allergic reaction.
Since parasites can exist in almost all areas of the human body, specific symptoms can occur when a specific part of the body is affected. For example, if the intestines have become the habitat of helminths, then the patient develops vomiting and nausea, pain in the abdomen. When infected with helminths, well-being often worsens for no apparent reason. Feeling unwell and increased irritability are explained by the fact that parasites poison the human body with waste products.
The most common and at the same time obvious signs of helminth infestation isthe appearance of worms in the stool. If the liver becomes infected, the patient may develop jaundice. Also, with intestinal damage, frequent constipation may occur, and infection with certain types of parasites leads to serious damage to the patient's internal organs. At the same time, the immune system is noticeably reduced, so a patient who is infected with worms can often get colds.
As noted earlier, parasites enter the body due to poor hygiene. But there are other factors that a person cannot control:
- pets, or rather their fleas, can carry parasite eggs;
- inhalation of contaminated dust can also lead to infection;
- some protozoan species can be transmitted during intercourse;
- Ticks, mosquitoes and other blood-sucking insects can act as carriers of parasites between animals and humans.
If you have a pet, such as a cat, without regular treatment for worms and fleas, the risk of parasite infestation in your family members is greatly increased.
Contraindications for cleaning the body
There are certain contraindications for cleansing the intestines at home. It is better to consult your doctor about them in advance if you want to carry out the procedure. For preparation, it is recommended to follow a diet 2 weeks before the course: vegetarian, low-calorie, with a lot of liquid and first courses. Self-cleaning is strictly prohibited during pregnancy and lactation, and undesirable during menstruation.
What diseases can interfere with the usual cleansing of the body:
- heart and vascular diseases, previous heart attack, stroke;
- pathological problems with the stomach, kidneys and gastrointestinal tract - their normal functioning is extremely important during cleaning: liver and kidney failure, ulcers, gastritis;
- flu, SARS, fever due to colds, seasonal illnesses, infections;
Why is it dangerous for humans
Uninvited guests can not only create a lot of discomfort, but also pose a great danger to human health. Helminths clog the body with toxins, pollute the blood with toxins produced and negatively affect the immune system, as a result of which the body cannot resist various viral or infectious diseases.
There are other dangers of parasite infestation, for example, the occurrence of tumors, damage to the mucous membrane of internal organs, the development of an allergic reaction, intestinal or biliary obstruction, etc. cancerous.
