The thought of parasites in the body is terrifying, but many people have them and don’t even know it.
Parasites are microorganisms that live off other organisms. Anyone can be infected with parasites. It’s more common than you think.
Some parasites cause disease directly, while others cause disease through the 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 can invade your body are pinworms, lambia, hookworms, tapeworms, trichinella, and dientamoeba fragilis.
They usually enter the body through the skin or mouth. Humans can become infected with parasites for a number of reasons, including exposure to places with parasites, travel to places with parasites, consumption of contaminated water and food, poor sanitation and hygiene, and a weak immune system.
Close contact with pets can lead to the transmission of parasites.
Parasites come in many shapes, forms, and sizes, causing a wide range of signs and symptoms.
Here are 10 signs that your body is full of parasites.
- Chronic disorders of the digestive tract
Intestinal parasites 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 burning sensation in the stomach. If you experience these symptoms, regular colonic therapy combined with a parasite cleanse and a special diet rich in fiber and alkaline foods can be beneficial.
- 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 can cause bloating and abdominal pain.
In addition, parasites block waste products from the body and cause pain in the upper abdomen.
Abdominal pain is mainly associated with intestinal infections with roundworms, hookworms, hookworms or tapeworms. According to a 1986 study published in the Singapore Medical Journal, hookworm infection was 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 before starting a parasite cleanse or holistic colon treatment to rule out something more serious.
- Itching in the rectum
Itching around the anus is another symptom of a parasitic infection. In particular, people with pinworms complain of itching and discomfort in the anus. Itching around the anus is common when the female worms lay their eggs at night.
Itching is caused by worms that lay eggs around the anus. Both migrating female worms and egg masses can cause irritation, itching, crawling, and even acute pain.
If an infected person scratches the area, the skin becomes damaged, increasing the risk of secondary bacterial infection. Itching usually occurs at night, causing insomnia and restlessness. Deworming and regular colon treatments can help the body eliminate them 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 deplete the body of vital substances by feeding on the food you eat.
Inability to absorb vitamins, minerals, fats, and carbohydrates can leave the body feeling weak, tired, depressed, and generally lethargic. This can lead to exhaustion on a mental, physical and emotional level.
Plus, the parasite’s metabolic waste overload causes organs to work harder to get rid of these wastes. It can also cause fatigue, low energy, lethargy, and extreme weakness.
If you have fatigue that does not get relief even after eating and sleeping properly, it is a good idea to consult a Colonic doctor.
- Change in appetite and weight loss
If you notice a sudden change in appetite, especially an increase in appetite, it may be due to parasites in your body.
In fact, increased appetite and weight loss are often seen with tapeworm or pinworm infections.
Because the parasites eat large amounts of the food eaten by the infected person, it makes the person hungry more often than usual.
In addition, the infected person notices a strong hunger in the early morning and is never satisfied after eating.
If you have an increased appetite and weight loss, colon hydrotherapy uses warm filtered water to cleanse the colon.
