Which in the body parasites and how to treat them

Is the most common on the planet. Parasites lived before our existence and easily adapt to any climate changes.

Some parasites in the human body side by side with us all their lives and do not cause big health problems. But the majority of species are destroying the host organism and cause various diseases.

Danger to humans

agents live and multiply in the host's body, causing significant changes in the body. This leads to the development of chronic diseases that constantly recur.

Localization of the parasites can reside in any part of the human body, but often settle in the organs:

  1. Gastrointestinal tract;
  2. The digestive tract
  3. In the joints;
  4. In the muscles;
  5. In the liver and kidneys;
  6. In the organs of vision;
  7. In the lungs;
  8. Bloodstream.

Most species prefer to live in the intestine, but in acute infestations of parasites are forced to migrate. Moving through the body, the parasites cripple the bodies that come their way. Migration can provoke incorrect treatment of folk ways.

Homemade methods are based on the eating of bitter herbs and substances that are not to your taste. Protozoa are sent from the intestine in search of more suitable for their life environment.

Human patients more susceptible to various, the immune system loses its functionality. The infected person often ill and infectious.

Sensitive the human body on the remains of life parasites. The victim observed the symptoms of intoxication acute allergic reaction. The processes that occur in the body after infection, have no character, and people can go for years without noticing agent.


Parasites that cause human health problems, divided into three groups:

  1. Protozoa or parasites. This group includes toxoplasmosis, Giardia, Trichomonas. Protozoa live inside the human cells and multiply, destroy it. A method of transmitting domestic and sexual.
  2. worms or larvae, which live inside the human body. Among the most common are beef tapeworm, pinworm, roundworm, pinworm. Methods of transmission: domestic, through insects, animals, or dirty ground.
  3. Live outside of the human body: mites, lice, ringworm. The main source of food — human blood. Appear on the skin bruises, the bites itch and hurt. The danger in a variety of infections that they carry: fever, encephalitis.

The most difficult part in the treatment and diagnosis is the infection. It is important to recognize the signs of parasites in your body and know the main types of them.

Among the most common roundworms are:

  1. Pinworms — the main place — the human gut, a long worm to 1 cm During infection in humans symptoms: disruption of the gastrointestinal tract, exhaustion, anemia, a sleep disorder.
  2. Roundworm — the length of the worm is 30 cm, it is able to migrate and settle in different parts of the body. When infected the person have symptoms of: acute allergic reaction, anemia, asthma, dermatitis. Once in the eyes or liver of human, roundworm can lead to serious.
  3. the size of the worm only 2-3 mm, the main habitat — the intestines. When infected cause the following complications: edema, allergic reactions, disruption of the gastrointestinal tract, fever.
  4. lives in the digestive tract, adult size up to 4.5 cm in humans, the parasite causes: anemia, weakness, poisoning of the body.

The level of severity associated with the number of agents in the body, their types and localization.

have a flat body. All species have a sucker with which they attach to the walls of the internal organs. The parasites feed on blood, nutrients and other secrets. Parasites in the human body only adults.

Before infecting a person passes an intermediate stage of their life in the body of another host: in fish, animal. In the human body often gets together with bad processed food.

Among the common types are:

  1. Cat — the body of the worm has a length of only 1-2 cm, the primary localization: the ducts of the pancreas, gallbladder, liver. Human causes: gastritis, ulcer, cholecystitis. Transmitted from animals to humans. Due to location in remote areas difficult parasite is diagnosed.
  2. intestinal — small flat worm, 2 mm. long, to Settle in the digestive tract. Once infected the person identified pathology: anemia, asthma, bronchitis, asthenia, infertility.

All types migrate easily through the body, causing mechanical damage of internal organs.

A parasitic tapeworm that lives in the digestive tract of a person. Reach a length of several tens of meters. To person gets from an intermediate host — cattle: cows, horses. In the human body, the larvae fall with a poorly roasted meat that man eats.

Among the most common types of tapeworm are:

  1. A tapeworm lives in the small intestine. In length can reach 3-5 m. the person causes: anemia, bowel obstruction, digestive disorders.
  2. Pork tapeworm — live in the human gut. A length of tape-worm reaches 7-8 m. the patient revealed obstruction of the esophagus.
  3. Beef tapeworm is the largest of human parasites. At length, the worm can reach 18 m. the person is observed with bowel obstruction, anxiety, allergies.

parasites can cause mucosal edema, bronchial spasms, asthma attacks.


Weight change

When infected, a person can lose weight. Associated loss of body weight with the struggle for nutrients, which are consumed the parasite. But small agents can cause weight gain. Once in the bloodstream, unicellular circulation and metabolism in the body slows down. In humans, manifested by swelling and growing.

The temperature rises for no apparent reason and is accompanied by weakness, General malaise. The person feels tired, wants to sleep constantly.

The type of agent is determined by the following types of surveys:

  1. The analysis of a feces on eggs of the parasite;
  2. General analysis of blood;
  3. Immunoassay blood test;
  4. Swab;
  5. The analysis of secretions of the duodenum;
  6. Ultrasound region of the gastrointestinal tract and liver;
  7. Imaging

Tomography is assigned if other research methods were not given the opportunity to present a complete picture of infection.

In case of negative result, some research methods are assigned again. The easiest way to determine the presence of the adult parasite in the human body. During the incubation period, the tests show a negative result.

When the diagnosis of the parasite, the doctor will immediately prescribe the appropriate treatment.


Treatment will require time off sick.
The first step is to prepare the body and get rid of accumulated toxins. The patient is assigned: Activated carbon. Cleaning the body of toxins lasts at least five days.

In the second stage the patient is prescribed means. It is better if the drug is chosen individually for a certain type of parasite. When infected with nematodes an effective drugs: Albendazole.

The stage of distillation of the parasites is carried out in two courses. The first course will kill the adults in the human body. 10-14 days to replace the adult worms will come new ones that hatch from the eggs. The second course will kill a new individual.

The most important is the restoration of the third stage of treatment. The third stage is the recovery of the gastrointestinal tract, liver and immune system. The patient is prescribed a course of drugs: Alma-gel. After taking the recommended medications that help in the digestive tract. Drugs are food enzymes and help to digest food. The dose is prescribed individually depending on the weight of the patient and secondary.
