Intestinal worms and Stomach parasites




Intestinal worms

As your colon gets stagnated with decaying and putrid fecal matter because of constipation, it turns unhygienic and becomes a breeding heaven for worms and disease causing germs. In a short period, the whole body becomes unhealthy.

Many information resources state that intestinal worms cause constipation. But it is the opposite. Your wonderful body has self healing and self protecting capabilities. A lot of resistance power is built into it. Only when this immune system is weakened, your body has a chance of getting infected.

This is what happens if you are constipated for a long time. The first place is colon. Decaying of un-eliminated fecal matter makes the colon unhygienic and start breeding worms and germs.

As the waste matter has no way out, toxins get re-absorbed into the blood and spread to the whole body. It negatively affects the body’s immune system. As the protection mechanism gets weak, the body becomes a safe home for parasites.

Intestinal worms and parasites steal valuable nutrients, suck away blood and make you anemic. This further weakens the immune system and causes various other diseases. What types of human intestinal worms and stomach parasites are caused by constipation?


Pin worms

 Pin worms or thread worms

Pin worms remind me of my childhood days – itching and biting in the anus area throughout the day, more severe at night. I used to find plenty of worms in stool. The reason must be: I had a stupid habit of stool holding that resulted in chronic constipation.


Pin worms are 5 to 10mm long, 0.5mm thick or less, small white delicate creatures. Their infection is more common in children and spread through nail biting, finger sucking.


Pin worms deposit eggs in the anus area of humans. The number of eggs in a female worm can rage from 10,000 to 15000. After hatching, worms can travel upwards into the colon and further. Initially, the eggs get transmitted to personal and bed clothing, fingernails and hands. Further transmission is through food, water, toilet commodes etc. Eggs can also be airborne through dust and enter through mouth and nose.



Symptoms
  • Itching and biting in the anal area.
  •  Infection of anal area due to scratching.
  •  Loss of appetite

 Treatment

The doctor can prescribe anti-worm medicines like mebedazole as a single or multiple doses. It kills the worm only but not the eggs. Since all the members of a house can get infected, all need to be treated at the same time.


Medicinal side effects are normal. Let your doctor know your present health problems and various medicines being used.


Observe extra hygiene to prevent spreading from person to person.


As you can see, medicines can kill worms, not eggs. Infection is very much possible again. That is why the treatment needs repetition. Your internal un-cleanliness is what starts and sustains the worms and eggs.


Hence, as long as you have decaying fecal matter because of constipation and weakened immune system, you continue to get infected. Get rid of your constipation fast. Once you do that, it will not take much time for the intestinal worms to disappear.
