Parasites In Humans

Welcome to This website is all about parasitic infections caused by worms, microscopic protozoa and skin parasites. The worms category is divided into roundworms, flukes and tapeworms. You can find the parasites on the right navigational menu.

Each parasite species has two pages. The first of the two contains basic information such as: life cycle, symptoms, diagnosis and treatment. The second page has pictures and videos. If you do not have any specific parasite in mind, then start by reading below some basic information about parasitic diseases.

Internal parasites and their waste products can reduce food absorbtion by causing inflammation of the intestinal wall. Food might also get stuck resulting in excessive toxins, smelly farts, bad breath and bloating. If organs such as liver and kidneys cannot get rid of the toxins, then poisons might get out through skin causing skin problems and hair loss. Damaged nervous system and stress hormones give origin to insomnia. Some bloodsucking worms leave open wounds resulting in darker feces. The loss of blood can cause iron deficiency, anemia and dizziness. Other symptoms caused by parasitic infections include (but are not limited to):

  • anorexia (loss of appetite)
  • chills
  • cough
  • diarrhea
  • dysuria (urinating problems or pain)
  • fatigue
  • fever
  • headache
  • hematochezia (bloody feces)
  • hemoptysis (coughing up blood)
  • immunodeficiency
  • itching
  • jaundice (yellowish eye whites and skin)
  • joint pain
  • memory loss
  • muscle pain and spasms
  • nausea or vomiting
  • rash
  • rectal hemorrhage (bleeding rectum)
  • rectal prolapse (rectum coming out, when pushing hard)
  • shortness of breath
  • stomach pain
  • swelling
  • sweating and grinding teeth while sleeping.

Natural water (when camping) should always be purified with water purifiers and filtering systems before drinking. Always wash and peel fruits carefully. If there are any splits or flaws, get rid of the bad parts. Extreme temperatures kill parasites and their eggs. Sushi and other raw foods should be put in the freezer for a few days before eating. Salting might also help because it dries the parasite's body. Educate yourself about common parasites in your area. Avoid known parasite carriers such as mosquitoes. If you visit tropical countries, prepare antiparasitic medication beforehand.

Diagnosis depends on the symptoms. Intestinal worms can be searched from a stool sample. If the feces only contain microscopic parasite eggs, confirmation can be difficult. Many parasites also have very similar eggs making it hard for your doctor to distinguish. Worms in other parts of the body can be examined with Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scans and X-rays. Protozoan parasites are usually identified either from a blood or a stool sample.

Infected body is filled with poisons and harmful stress hormones. Exercising is a good way to keep blood and lymphatic fluids flowing. White blood cells also travel to infection areas quicker. Faster metabolism helps to get rid of toxins. Sweating and urinating are quick ways to excrete poisons. Diarrhea can be compensated by drinking enough. Vegetables and other healthy foods contain vitamins and fiber. Vitamins protect cells and fiber sweeps the gastrointestinal tract clean. Garlic, black walnut hull, cloves and wormwood are natural herbs damaging parasites and their eggs. Treatment is usually accomplished with drugs such as Metronidazole (Flagyl), nitazoxanide (Alinia), Mebendazole (Vermox) and thiabendazole (Mintezol).
