Parasites in the body are scary to think about, 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 toxins they release. 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 disorders of the digestive tract
Intestinal parasitic infections can cause inflammation, destroy the intestinal lining, and cause chronic diarrhea.
The toxic waste produced by the parasites can cause chronic constipation, gas, bloating, nausea and heartburn. If you experience these symptoms, a regular colonic treatment combined with a parasite cleanse and an independent diet rich in fiber and alkaline foods can help.
- Abdominal pain
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.
In addition, parasites block the body’s waste products and cause pain in the upper abdomen.
Abdominal pain is mainly caused by roundworm, hookworm, hookworm and tapeworm intestinal infections. A 1986 study published in the Singapore Medical Journal found hookworm infection to be the leading cause of abdominal discomfort, especially among adults who had recently traveled abroad.
If you experience sudden, severe abdominal pain from time to time, it’s important to see your doctor to rule out something more serious before starting a parasite cleanse or a series of colon procedures.
- Itching in the rectum
Itching around the anus is another symptom of a parasitic infection. In particular, people suffering from 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 the migrating female worm and the egg mass cause irritation, itching, crawling, and even sharp pain.
If an infected person scratches the affected area, the skin breaks down and increases the risk of secondary bacterial infection. Itching usually occurs at night and can cause insomnia and anxiety. Colon cleanses and regular treatments help the body eliminate naturally, unlike aggressive 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.
Inability to absorb vitamins, minerals, fats, and carbohydrates can make the body weak, thin, depressed, and generally lethargic. This can lead to exhaustion on a mental, physical and emotional level.
Also, overloading the parasite with toxic metabolic waste causes the organs to work harder to eliminate this waste. It can also lead to fatigue, low energy, drowsiness, and extreme weakness.
If you have persistent fatigue despite eating well and sleeping well, it may be beneficial to consult with a colonologist to discuss your options.
- Change in appetite and weight loss
If you notice a sudden change in appetite, especially an increase, it may be due 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 consume a large amount of food eaten by an infected person.
parasites and toxic waste.
- Mental illness
Parasitic infections can cause mood swings, depression, anxiety, as well as visual hallucinations. Often these symptoms are accompanied by digestive problems.
The gut contains both neurons and neurotransmitters (especially serotonin) that are important for maintaining a healthy enteric nervous system.
Toxic metabolic waste from intestinal parasites can attack neurons and neurotransmitters, causing nervousness, anxiety, mood swings, and even depression.
Scientists also believe that inflammation in the gut can cause inflammation in the brain and vice versa.
If you’re experiencing sudden mood swings or depression, colon hydrotherapy has been found to improve mental health when combined with proper diet and lifestyle changes. The cause is parasites, so take the necessary steps to clear the parasites.
- Teeth grinding
If you grind your teeth while you sleep, one reason could be a parasitic infection. Teeth grinding occurs during sleep due to anxiety and restlessness caused by waste products and toxins released by parasites in the body.
A 2010 study published in the Dental Research Journal confirmed a link between intestinal parasite infections and bruxism in young children.
Pathogenic parasites can cause bruxism in children, so if you notice any of the above symptoms in your child, it is very important to check the stool.
- Iron deficiency anemia
Intestinal roundworm or pinworm infection can lead to iron deficiency in the body, which can cause anemia.
Parasites steal iron from the food people eat, including beneficial vitamins, leading to iron deficiency.
A 2003 study published in the Indian Journal of Pediatrics found 30-50 percent intestinal parasites and 40-73 percent anemia among schoolgirls (ages 2-4) in Gulbarga, Karnataka.
The study noted that this problem is more due to lack of hygiene, knowledge, illiteracy, poverty and many other factors.
Another 2008 study published in the Nigerian Journal of Clinical Practice found diarrhea and anemia in preschool children of peasant farmers in Calabar, Nigeria.
Severe anemia ultimately affects a child’s growth and development. In fact, children infected with the parasite experience stunted growth and weight loss. If you notice signs of growth retardation in your child, it’s a good idea to consult your doctor before starting other treatments. Colon and parasite cleansing can be used for both children and adults.
- Skin problems
Intestinal parasites can cause inflammation in the body and cause many skin problems. Such skin problems include rashes, hives, eczema and other forms of skin allergies.
In addition, toxins and waste products released by parasites increase the amount of eosinophils in the blood. This can lead to ulcers, tumors, lesions, and ulcers.
Not only the skin, but parasites can cause dryness, brittleness and hair loss.
Instead of self-treating skin irritations, unexplained rashes, urticaria, rosacea, and eczema, it can be helpful to use colon cleansers and dewormers under the guidance of a qualified professional.
- Muscle and joint pain
Some parasites enter the soft tissues of the joints and muscles and form cysts. It is often mistaken for arthritis and causes irritation and pain.
In addition, toxins released by parasites stimulate an inflammatory response in the body. Pain can also be caused by the immune system’s response to parasites.
If you cannot solve the cause of sudden pain in muscles, joints, or other parts of the body, and the pain is increasing day by day, contact a qualified medical professional.
