It's incomprehensible why human parasites are being treated like a “secret society”. If you've seen the movie “Cruel Intentions”, it described a secret society as “everybody knows it, it's just that nobody talks about it”. Well, it must be talked about because human parasites are a serious public issue. You have to listen because these don't just exist in a Third World country where malnutrition and poor hygienic practices exist.
In 1976, the Centers for Disease Control conducted a survey which the Miami Herald published in an article dated June 27, 1978. The article revealed that one in every six people (that's randomly selected) had one or more parasites. In 1991, Louis Parish, M.D. (a physician from New York) estimated that 25% of the New York population were infected by parasites.
Another specialist (Peter Weiner, Ph. D.) from Walter Reed Army Institute of Research stated that there is a tremendous parasite problem in the United States that is just not being identified. Since 2005, parasitologists project that more than 8.3 billion people on this planet will be infected with parasitic diseases. These are just a few of what informed people are saying about human parasite infection.
In short, these infections exist everywhere and everyone is susceptible.
Why Is It Spreading?
There are actually several reasons why parasitic infection among humans spread like wildfire. Keep in mind that there are many parasites that infect humans. This means that the reasons given below are general and may involve the transfer of different parasites, not just one. Here are some of them:
You have to understand that not all parasites are harmful to the body. Some are “symbiotic” parasites which means their presence in your system yields a mutual benefit.
Symptoms of Human Parasite Infestation
Remember that symptoms of parasite infection over arch with the symptoms of other diseases. This means that you should not automatically assume that you are infested with a “bad” parasite. However, paying attention to these symptoms will help you find out and take some steps for parasite cleaning.
It is very difficult (even for doctors) to instantly and accurately diagnose parasite-based problems because these can mimic other diseases that are more familiar with physicians.
What's more, the reproductive cycle in which the cysts or eggs are passed (and the way they mature) takes place at irregular intervals which makes diagnosis more tricky.
Know The Parasites
There are four main classes of parasites that infect humans. Each of these classes have many varieties under them. A total of 130 parasites are already known to infect human beings.
These parasites affect our health because in many cases, unexplained conditions disappeared the moment parasites were eliminated from the victim. Such unexplained conditions are skin problems, environmental conditions, hypoglycemia, long-standing obesity, depression, excessive fatigue and digestive problems.
Here's how you can drive away any of the four classes of parasites out of your body:
“De-worm Your Children”
Children are very vulnerable to parasites. They have the habit of putting any kind of dirty objects (even their dirty hands) in their mouths. They share cups, toys and food with other kids who may also be infected. They rarely are obedient in washing their hands properly after handling the family pets or after using the toilet. Obviously, these are only a few ways of the child that can lead them to parasitic infections. Call your local physician and have your kids dewormed.
Many books and Internet sites refer to herbs as an effective and natural way of getting rid of parasites. Such herbs are Green Hull, Black Walnut Hulls, Thyme, Fennel, Garlic, Pumpkin Seeds, Diatomaceaous Earth, Cloves, Goldenseal, Wormwood, Sage, Grape Seed Extract, Cranberry Powder and Male Fern.
Experts warn that these herbs may not initially get rid of the parasites because it tends to leave minimal quantities in the body. However, herbs are proven to adequately provide future protection against any infection that may happen to you after you clear up the parasites from your body.
Do you know that bad bacteria are also parasites which are detrimental to your health. Bad bacteria such as Salmonella, Cvlostridiums and Shigella invade your body and colonize tumorous organs. They are difficult to stop because humans are constantly re-infecting themselves by keeping reservoir on their hands and beneath the fingernails.
In case you are victimized by them, here are the ways how you can both eliminate them and prevent them from coming back.
While Bowel cleansing, make sure to eat sterile dairy products so that you can get rid of the bad bacteria problem in just a week. There are also colon cleanse powders sold in the market that are effective bad bacteria killers. You'll know that you've succeeded when you feel that your tummy is flatter, your mood has improved and there are no more gurgles.
Keep in mind that the bowel cleanse above is considered a “general method” that means that it may yield mixed results. If you have any diagnosed parasitic infection, nothing beats your local doctor's customized advice.
