Symptoms of Internal Parasites

Parasites are common "dwellers" in the human body - they feed on the body's tissues and cells, and use the body's vitamins and juices, which are supposed to be used for the work of internal organs and systems.

Helminthiasis can conditionally occur in both acute and chronic forms - each with its own symptoms. So in the early days, the signs of a parasite invasion are not only the symptoms mentioned above, but also accompanied by:

  • The patient's temperature risesThe body is as high as 38. 5-39 degrees for no apparent reason.

If the pathological process becomes chronic, these symptoms disappear, so the patient mistakenly sees it as a normalization of the general condition of the body. It is an illusion, parasitic organisms that gnaw through walls, affect the gastrointestinal tract and cause internal bleeding, form cystic tumors and cause fatty liver necrosis, waste poisoning, and even death.

Analysis type

If you suspect a parasite invasion process, you should visit an infectious disease specialist or pediatrician and undergo a diagnostic process. After receiving the results of laboratory and instrumental studies, a course of treatment was prescribed.

How Parasites Affect the Body

So the most common test doctors call it:

  • Laboratory study of feces- In this case, the subject of the study is the presence of parasite larvae, or the parasite forms themselves or their individual fragments. The presented analysis allowed us to identify many forms of the parasite that affect the body, but it was considered to be the most effective compared to those parasites that inhabit the gastrointestinal tract.
  • Enterobiasis Gua Sha. It helps detect the presence of pinworms that live in the gastrointestinal tract and lay eggs in the anus and perineum. This analysis was available for all children in school or kindergarten, as well as adults with symptoms such as anal itching, worsening sleep, and unexplained weight loss, irritability, and weight loss.
  • blood chemistry. Allows you to identify vital activity products in the body and the decay of parasite forms, toxins and poisons, which are released into the bloodstream. When under the influence of a parasite invasion, the immune system reacts with the release of antibodies into the bloodstream, thereby raising immunoglobulin levels. In particular, they take into account indicators such as hemoglobin - whose indicators will decrease and white blood cell levels will increase, whose indicators will increase.

patient as neededSend ultrasound or X-rays- These hardware diagnostic methods allow you to identify accumulated foci in parasitic form.

treatment method

When parasite invasion is confirmed, a course of treatment is prescribed, consisting of several stages and involving the use of the following methods.

Diagnosis of intestinal parasites

Initially, drug treatment is administered with antihelminthic compounds - the choice of one drug or the other depends on which type of parasite invasion is diagnosed in the patient.

According to doctors, for the general course of treatment and for complex prevention, various drug formulations can be prescribed to expel the parasite from the body.

After inhibiting the vital activity of the endoparasite form, the task is to purify the internal organs and systems from the products of the parasite vital activity. Mostly, at this stage, various homeopathic remedies with natural ingredients are used.

Traditional medicine also plays an important role in fighting parasites - many herbs and plants, due to their active compounds and essential oils, adversely affect parasite larvae and adults. Therefore, the accepted folk remedy against worms is considered a decoction of pumpkin seeds and garlic, dill or wormwood.

If necessary, conventional ozone therapy can also be used - the administered mixture helps to eliminate general poisoning of the body and accelerate the recovery of internal organs and systems, strengthening and strengthening the immune system.

In some cases, doctors may resort to surgery to quickly remove foci where the parasite has accumulated.
