In the body, in addition to the spiritual essence, there are a number of other life forms that are not always conducive to human life. It is customary to be shy when it comes to the unpleasant life forms that are adjacent to us. There are parasites that poison our body, coexist in it and multiply.
And any person has a problem: how to treat one of the most common diseases, how to cure worms?
This is the question that worries everyone, and we will try to answer.
To understand what it is, you need to determine how worms occur and how to treat them:
- they enter the human body because it is infected by lower multicellular organisms, parasitic worms, through the external environment;
- parasites, or helminths, are found in insects, fungi and plants, as well as in vertebrates;
- helminths are found in 60% of the population, but this is not the worst thing, because in people of Asian origin, doctors of laboratory diagnostics find 100% infection with various forms of helminths.
The products of their vital activity in humans, they cause all sorts of ailments. To get rid of these symptoms is our direct task, because worms in an adult suppress vital activity and even reduce motor activity.
From worms there are all kinds of side effects in an adult. How to get rid of this scourge and how to treat worms, let's try to understand from the recommendations of experts.
Symptoms of the disease
From the very beginning, you need to make sure that a person has worms by external signs. To do this, you need to know the symptoms of infection, which are as follows:
- acne on the skin;
- weight and its changes with increased appetite;
- unstable chair;
- bad breath, increased gas and belching;
- headaches and irritability;
- uncharacteristic smell of feces and urine;
- inflammation of the lymph nodes;
- asthma attacks and coughing;
- weakness and fatigue;
- excretion of parts of helminths in the feces;
- itching in the anus.
These symptoms should alert any person and make you think about consulting a professional. Only a specialist in the field of diagnosing such diseases will be able to answer the question of what is the treatment for a particular parasite infection in adults.
Types of parasites in humans
To know how to treat, it is important to understand what kind of parasite in adults we are dealing with. There are a number of varieties of helminthic invasions, which differ both in symptoms and in their effects on the human body.
There are the following types of parasites:
- pinworms, itching in the anus, is a sign of infection with small roundworms;
- trichinella, enter the muscle mass through the vessels and cause swelling and pain;
- whipworm, a source of problems with the gastrointestinal tract;
- tapeworms, various types of tapeworms of great length;
- roundworms, long enough, roundworms that cause problems with the airways and bile ducts.
All types of these invasions are associated with the use of insufficiently thermally processed food and with non-compliance with hygiene rules. The presence of pets also often leads to infestation with parasites.
The attending physician, who discovered the symptoms of damage to the body, must confirm the diagnosis with the help of laboratory tests. For this, scrapings from the anus area, fecal tests for worm eggs, enzyme immunoassay, endoscopy and ultrasound are used.
Methods of treatment
People who want to get healed from a pesky problem choose either a medical method or traditional medicine. It should be noted that the combined treatment of worms will also be effective, after consultation with the observing doctor.
Medicines for worms are prescribed by a specialist based on the results of laboratory tests and personal experience.
In itself, the presence of worms in an adult is not a diagnosis of a complex disease, and it is not the body that needs to be treated, but the removal of parasites from it that interfere with its normal functioning.
Therefore, drugs for worms are aimed at suppressing the functions of their vital activity or the ability to absorb nutrients, which leads to their death.
According to this principle, they are divided into the following types:
- in the muscle tissue of parasites, the drug blocks nerve impulses;
- do not allow the absorption of glucose, which leads to the death of parasites;
- blocks the intestines of worms;
- affect the ability to move.
In addition, drugs are broadly targeted, and narrowly focused on a specific type of parasite. Based on experience, treatment methods and laboratory results, the attending physician chooses a specific medication for each case.
Extended action antiparasitic drugs are used to interrupt their growth by blocking metabolic processes.
A narrower range of anthelmintic drugs affect tapeworms.
In addition to preparations for worms, agents are used that eliminate the allergic reactions of the body in the treatment of invasions. They allow to reduce the general intoxication of the body when eliminating worms in adults, and are aimed at reducing symptomatic phenomena. Medicines for the treatment of the patient, as well as the procedure for taking them, are selected by the doctor on an individual basis, taking into account the process of the course of helminthiasis.
Medicines containing mebendazole are used for enterobiasis and trichuriasis. Drugs containing Diethylcarbamazine are suitable for the treatment of filariasis, including those with diseases of the organs of vision and lymphatic system. Medicines containing Levamisole are used for hookworm and ascariasis. Bephenia hydroxynaphthoate is used against roundworms. And piperazine adipate gives a good effect on ascaris and enterobiasis.
Tablet preparations containing Albendazole bring relief from echinococcus and cysticercosis. In difficult cases of helminthiasis, therapy is carried out using: hemodez, glucose solutions. Cordiamin is used for high blood pressure.
The attending physician will be able to prescribe the necessary course of treatment and select a drug from a wide range of medicines applicable to a particular case. It is very important not to hide the problem, and at the slightest symptoms similar to infection with worms, consult a doctor.
Drug treatment, while effective, has side effects. There are people for whom medications are contraindicated.
For this case, we will consider non-drug methods of treatment, namely:
- oxygen treatment;
- alcohol treatment.
Ayurveda not only normalizes vitality and raises the general tone of the body, but also serves as a method for getting rid of worms.
The cause of infection with helminths, according to the followers of this teaching, is the lack of hygiene and purity of thoughts. Unclean, evil thoughts, laziness and despondency are the causes of a decrease in the body's resistance to external influences.
Exercises that saturate the human body with cosmic energy help maintain health and find inner balance. At the same time, it is important to cleanse the body of toxins with the help of laxative decoctions, and then use hot spices and decoctions with food. Thyme, wormwood and St. John's wort will be very useful. After a week, you can repeat laxative decoctions again so that the parasites leave your body.
Oxygen treatment has long been known as a way to expel helminths from the human body. The essence of the process is that a special tube is inserted into the esophagus and oxygen is pumped through it. This procedure is repeated for several days and promotes the expulsion of parasites, while saturating the cells of the gastrointestinal tract with oxygen.
For this, ozone therapy is also used, but the tube is inserted into the anus and an ozone-oxygen mixture is supplied, which acts on parasites in a paralyzing way. It is also possible to use enemas with olive oil and ozone. These types of treatments allow you to get rid of worms very effectively.
For an alternative treatment, use a mixture of cognac and tea in equal proportions, drinking on an empty stomach along with a laxative. A large tablespoon of cognac is drunk for five days, and ten days later a second course is taken.
A good remedy for helminths is vodka, with heads of garlic infused in it. It is applied by a large tablespoon for ten days.
