It’s scary to think about having parasites in your body, but many people have them and don’t even know it.
Parasites are microorganisms that live at the expense of other organisms. Anyone can get a parasitic infection. It’s more common than you think.
Some parasites cause disease directly, while others cause disease through their toxins. There are several types of parasites that live and feed on your body. Some survive on the food you eat, some feed on your red blood cells, and some lay eggs in your body.
Some of the common parasites that infect your body are pinworms, giardia, hookworms, tapeworms, trichinella, and Dienthamoba fragilis.
They usually enter the body through the skin or mouth. People can become infected with parasites for many reasons, such as living in an area with parasites, traveling to an area with parasites, consuming contaminated water and food, poor sanitation and hygiene, and having a weak immune system.
Close contact with pets can lead to infection.
Parasites come in many shapes, forms, and sizes, and can cause a wide variety of signs and symptoms.
Here are 10 signs that your body is full of parasites.
Chronic diseases of the gastrointestinal tract
Intestinal parasitic infections can cause inflammation, destroy the intestinal lining, and cause chronic diarrhea.
Toxic waste produced by parasites can cause chronic constipation, gas, bloating, nausea, and heartburn. If you experience these symptoms, regular colonic therapy combined with a parasite cleanse and a personalized diet rich in fiber and alkaline foods can help.
Another stomach problem caused by parasites is abdominal pain. Parasites that live in the upper part of the small intestine cause inflammation and irritation in this area. This leads to a feeling of bloating and pain.
Parasites also block the body’s waste products and cause pain in the upper abdomen.
Abdominal pain is mainly associated with roundworm, hookworm, hookworm and tapeworm intestinal infections. According to a 1986 study published in the Singapore Medical Journal, hookworm is the leading cause of abdominal discomfort, particularly among adults who have recently traveled abroad.
If you experience sudden, severe abdominal pain, it’s important to see your doctor to rule out something more serious before starting a deworming or colonic series.
Itching in the rectum
Itching around the anus is another symptom of parasitic infection. In particular, patients with pinworms complain of itching and discomfort in the anus. Itching around the anus usually occurs at night when female pinworms lay their eggs.
Itching is caused by worms laying eggs around the anus. Both migrating female worms and egg masses can cause irritation, itching, crawling, and even sharp pain.
If an infected person scratches the affected area, the skin becomes damaged and the risk of secondary bacterial infection increases. Itching at night often causes insomnia and restlessness. Colon cleansing and regular treatments help the body eliminate naturally, unlike the harsh products you can buy.
Fatigue and weakness
Fatigue can also be a symptom of a parasitic infection. This is mainly due to intestinal worms that feed on the food you eat and deplete the body of vital substances.
Failure to absorb vitamins, minerals, fats, and carbohydrates can lead to weakness, fatigue, depression, and general weakness. This can lead to exhaustion on a mental, physical and emotional level.
In addition, overloading the parasite’s metabolism with toxic wastes causes the organs to work harder to eliminate these wastes. It can also cause fatigue, loss of energy, drowsiness, and severe weakness.
If you are constantly feeling tired despite eating well and sleeping well, it may be helpful to consult with a colonologist to discuss your options.
Changes in appetite and weight loss
If you notice a sudden change in appetite, especially an increase, it may be related to parasites in your body.
In fact, increased appetite and weight loss are often seen with tapeworm or pinworm infections.
This is due to the fact that parasites eat large amounts of food eaten by an infected person.

Parasitic infections can cause mood swings, depression, anxiety, and visual hallucinations. Often these symptoms are accompanied by digestive problems.
The gut contains neurons and neurotransmitters (especially serotonin) that are important for maintaining healthy neurons.
