Helminthiases represent a large group of diseases throughout the world. Even more cases of worm infections go undiagnosed because they are asymptomatic. The clinical signs of worm disease do not appear with an insignificant number of parasites and, in the case of their activity in the human body, the symptoms can be "disguised" as other diseases, and the diagnosis of helminthiasis will be significantly difficult.
At the same time, what is most important in successfully treating these diseases is the timely initiation of therapy, since worms in humans are not harmless "cohabitants" in the body. Multicellular parasites significantly disrupt vital processes: they multiply and penetrate various organs of the human body, having a negative impact on your work. Worm wastes are poisons and toxins for the human body. In addition to their direct toxic effect, they decrease the penetration of nutrients into the bloodstream, which are necessary for life and development.
Traditional medicine is an effective form of alternative therapy whose prescriptions have been handed down from generation to generation to maintain the most effective treatment options. Therefore, successful methods have survived to this day and are used successfully to treat many diseases, including worms.
The benefits of folk remedies used for worms
Despite the widespread development of pharmaceutical techniques, there is nothing more natural than a folk remedy for worms, which has been tested for several generations before reaching us and has proven its effectiveness.
Among the main advantages of folk remedies are:
- the ability to remove worms with improvised means;
- lack of exposure to unnatural chemicals;
- relative safety for health;
- minimal risk of allergic reactions;
- the natural ingredients do not contain additives that can have a negative effect on the body;
- the absence of counterfeits and other risks of producing poor quality pharmaceuticals to fight worms;
- accessibility to all people - most recipes for folk remedies can be repeated at home from the ingredients that everyone has in the kitchen;
- all medicinal herbs can be purchased over-the-counter from a pharmacy or herbal – this saves a lot of time and effort.
It should also be remembered that alternative medicine is a combination of the forces of man and nature, so such a treatment will not only effectively get rid of the worms, but will also give strength and energy to the body.
Preparing for treatment with proven remedies for worms
Despite the safety of traditional medicine, before starting treatment, you need to undergo a series of procedures. This will help improve the effectiveness of methods to get rid of worms.
First, it is important to make a correct diagnosis. It is advisable not only to confirm the presence of helminthiasis, but also to determine the specific type of worms. Most natural remedies are universal against worms and roundworms, but some of the methods differ in specificity of action. It is important to pass the appropriate stool or blood tests to determine an accurate diagnosis as well as to track the outcome of treatment: a repeated test should be negative in the case of successful anthelmintic therapy with folk remedies.
Also, the body must be prepared for the course of treatment: to cleanse it as much of the toxic metabolic products as possible before getting rid of the worms. One should abandon fatty, salty and sweet foods, adhere to a hypoallergenic and therapeutic diet, which will reduce the load on the immune system.
You should also protect yourself and consult an expert in advance. Only a physician will be able to determine the absence of contraindications for the treatment of worms in a specific way, since he will take into account all diseases and characteristics of the condition of the human body. After thorough preparation for therapy and the doctor's permission, you can begin to practice your chosen method of alternative medicine.
Herbs and spices with which you can remove worms
Herbal remedies for various worms remain one of the most popular groups of medications in alternative medicine. Medicinal herbs served as the main treatment for all diseases in every country in the world, even before the development of the pharmaceutical industry.
Most modern pharmaceutical remedies for parasites are made from herbs. They form the basis of the active substance in tablets and other dosage forms. However, in the chemical processing process, some of the useful properties of herbal remedies are lost, so the effectiveness of medicinal herbs in combating industrial worms is much less than that of natural remedies.
Herbal Infusions and Decoctions
Infusions are prepared by adding hot or cold water to the medicinal plant, followed by the preparation time. The "infusion" period is determined by the properties of the plant. It is important to strictly follow the prescription so that the infusion really has the indicated medicinal properties.
In the process of preparing decoctions for worms, it is necessary to bring the solution to a boil, boil the herb over a low heat for some time for the agent to reveal its therapeutic properties.
Among the anthelmintic herbs for preparing infusions and decoctions for an infected person, tansia, wormwood, cloves, wild garlic, dandelion, pelargon, centaur and concoctions of combined herbs are the most used.
Representatives of this genus of perennial herbaceous plants and shrubs have long been used for medicinal purposes.
As a remedy for worms, an infusion of tansy is used, which is given orally. To make this medicine yourself, you need to buy or find tansy inflorescences and dry them. You can buy a ready-made preparation in dry form: tansy is sold through the Bud Zdorov pharmacy chain.
The infusion for worms is prepared according to this recipe: 1 tablespoon of dried inflorescences should be poured with a glass of boiling water. If a solution to fight worms is prepared in a special pot, you should either cover it with a lid or cover an ordinary cup with a saucer - this is important for quick preparation. Once the medicine has cooled, you will need to take it regularly.
The dosage is 4 tablespoons 3-4 times a day. Drinking an infusion to get rid of worms is necessary before meals: in the morning on an empty stomach, then 30 minutes before lunch and dinner.
This perennial herb is known for its bitter odor and specific taste. Absinthe has been used medicinally for centuries. Due to the irritating effect of the taste buds in the oral cavity, the excretory work of the gastrointestinal tract is enhanced. Promotes the production of gastric juice, bile and pancreatic secretions.
The recipe for the decoction is as follows: it is necessary to grind the dried plant in a coffee grinder, then pour 2 teaspoons of dry matter with 1. 5 cups of boiling water. The resulting product should be left in a thermos bottle or covered with a towel and after 6 to 8 hours, countersink the infusion.
The decoction to fight earthworms should be divided into three parts and consumed in the morning, before meals, for an hour and a half. The procedure should be repeated every morning for 2 to 3 weeks, depending on the severity of the helminthiasis, in order to completely remove the worms.
The spice, which is often used in many recipes, is highly regarded for its multifaceted medicinal effects. Dried clove buds are used to remove toxins, stimulate the gastrointestinal tract and normalize digestive processes. In addition to the beneficial gastroenterological action, clove-based preparations have a pronounced immunomodulating effect, activating nonspecific immune defense mechanisms. The use of clove infusion is effective against worms. In addition, it normalizes the functioning of all organs in the gastrointestinal tract.
To prepare a medicine for most worms, 30 g of buds are poured into boiling water in a volume of 0. 5 liter and left to cool completely.
You can take the medicine according to the following schedule: 1 cup 1 time a day before breakfast.
Some recipes suggest that cloves should be infused with alcohol. For this, pour 30 g of buds with 0, 5 liters of vodka or pure alcohol and then leave the solution in a dark place for several weeks. The regimen of anthelmintic therapy with alcoholic solution of cloves for humans consists of ingesting a teaspoon of tincture before meals for several weeks.
In addition, cloves dried to fight worms can be crushed and eaten dry according to the following scheme: on the first day - 0. 5 g after meals, then add 0. 5 g every day. Duration of treatment is 6 days.
The plant known as "chives" increases appetite, increases the secretion of the gastrointestinal glands, improves intestinal motility. Even in Ancient Greece, wild garlic was used successfully against worms as well as a bactericidal and antifungal agent. You can find a ready-made dry decoction base of this plant to quickly get rid of the worms.
From the first leaves of this plant, a healthy salad can be made, and the stalks are useful for infusion.
The recipe takes the following proportions: Pour 1 teaspoon of dry stems with a glass of boiling water, leave for an hour and strain. The plant preparation is taken in a quarter cup 4 times a day, 30 minutes before meals.
The drying of crushed dandelion root makes it an excellent alternative to pharmaceuticals for worm control any time of year. Dandelion root powder should be taken in a pinch three times a week, half an hour before meals. It's important to drink with plenty of water.
This plant is used in gastroenterology for the treatment of intestinal diseases, ulcers of the gastric and intestinal mucosa and other gastrointestinal diseases. It has also been proven the effective action of pelargon against several types of worms in humans, especially pinworms and roundworms.
The plant helps to quickly get rid of all types of parasites. It is also used to treat various types of cholecystitis, chronic gastritis, and ulcerative defects in the gastrointestinal mucosa. Thus, this drug will be an excellent alternative to most drugs for complex pathology of the gastrointestinal tract.
Combined Herbal Preparations
For parasitosis, natural preparations of various herbs are also used. They provide a complex effect and allow you to quickly get rid of parasites. For example, such a collection might include a combination of tansy, wormwood and chamomile. Each of these components fights the worms, which provides a powerful triple effect of the drug. In addition, chamomile soothes inflammation and promotes rapid recovery of the human gastrointestinal tract after worm infection.
The recipe for infusion is simple: 1 tablespoon of the dry collection should be poured into a cup of boiling water and then left to cool and settle overnight. In the morning, you can start the treatment: 1 cup of the medicine should be drunk and then prepare the next serving for the night. The duration of this treatment for worms is 3 days.
Garlic and onion help remove worms
These plants belong to the same species and therefore have a similar effect on various diseases, including worm infections. Onion and garlic contain phytoncides - active substances with fungicidal, anti-malarial, anti-microbial and anti-inflammatory effects.
The amino acid alliin was found in garlic, which is converted to allicin in the process of biochemical reactions. It is this substance that has a powerful bactericidal and antifungal effect, in addition to treating worms. These and many other beneficial effects of garlic have long been used in alternative medicine at different times from the time of Ancient Egypt.
Garlic is used in several versions, depending on the type of helminthiasis and its severity. For example, garlic can be used internally - just eat a few cloves. Experts recommend adding garlic to every meal. You can safely eat up to 6 cloves of garlic a day. This dosage will only bring health benefits.
A decoction of garlic in milk is the second version of a medicinal composition effective in combating worms. To prepare it, pour 3-4 cloves of garlic with a glass of milk, bring to a boil and cook for about 20 minutes. The resulting broth is cooled and filtered through a sieve or cotton cloth. Drinking this remedy for worms is necessary daily.
The second option for using garlic broth in milk is a medicinal enema. To treat a worm infection, a whole head of garlic is added to a glass of milk, then boiled until soft and filtered. The cooled solution is used as a medicinal composition for microclysters. The procedure is performed daily for 7 days.
It is important to ensure that the product is not subjected to heat treatment before being consumed for medicinal purposes, as allicin is only effective when consumed raw garlic.
You can also get rid of worms at home with the help of preparations based on an ordinary onion. The active components of onion broths help to quickly remove egg worms and adult worms and their residues.
One of the simplest recipes is to chop 1 onion and pour boiling water over it, then let it ferment for a day. Thereafter, the medicine against worm infection is filtered and taken at a dose of 0. 5 cups in the morning, on an empty stomach, for 3-4 days.
For the second recipe, 1 onion must be chopped finely and placed in the thermos, pour boiling water for at least 2 hours. The medicine for worms should be consumed in the morning on an empty stomach, 0. 5 cups for 10 days. Drinking the onion infusion can be combined with a spoonful of honey, which compensates for the peculiar flavor of the onion.
Pumpkin seeds have many useful properties, they have a beneficial effect on the working of the gastrointestinal tract and the gallbladder. Pumpkin seeds contain a rare amino acid (cucurbitin), which provides anthelmintic action. This compound has a paralytic effect on adult helminths, causing the complete cessation of their vital activity.
To treat an adult, just take 300 g of seeds, grind them in a coffee grinder, add a tablespoon of honey and 50 ml of water. The resulting mixture is taken on an empty stomach in the morning, in portions - 1 teaspoon for an hour, and after 30-60 minutes they do a cleansing enema for worms.
A more pleasant version of a pumpkin-based anthelmintic is a pumpkin seed dessert. To remove the worms, the seeds must be moistened with water and salt and then fried over a low heat with the addition of vegetable oil and salt.
It is necessary to respect the indicated dosage. Excessive intake of even herbal remedies to fight worms can harm the body. The pumpkin seed preparation is taken in the morning on an empty stomach.
Other folk anthelmintics
If worms are found, other treatment methods are also used: fruit from fruit trees, papaya seeds, pineapples, bananas and many others. Let's consider them in more detail.
The fruits of various fruit and berry trees have an anthelmintic effect. For example, pear seeds have a mild effect against the main human parasites, so it is recommended to eat the pear together with the seeds, chewing them well for maximum absorption.
Papaya seeds are an exotic analogue of pear fruits. This way of getting rid of worms is not very common due to the rarity of this plant. However, papaya contains carpain, sitosterol, caricin and other biologically active substances. These chemical compounds allow the body to recover as quickly as possible after undergoing a course of anthelmintic therapy (normalizing the digestive tract). Worm seeds can be ground or eaten whole. The choice depends only on the patients' preferences.
Another exotic anthelmintic agent is pineapple. It contains the natural component bromelain, which effectively fights the release of free radicals from tapeworms. In addition, the natural acid in pineapple interferes with the metabolism of glucose - the worms' main source of energy.
Various wild berries also have a powerful effect on worms.
For example, strawberries are recommended for anyone with low-acid gastritis. These berries can simply be added to your normal diet: they will benefit your gastrointestinal tract, liver function, normalize your stool, help treat urolithiasis and also help eliminate parasites. Strawberries have proven to be effective against roundworms, worms, pinworms.
Cherries, due to the large amount of organic acids in their composition, are effective in getting rid of worms. The number of berries per day in the treatment of worms is not strictly limited, but it is better not to eat more than 1 cup to avoid causing the development of gastrointestinal diseases.
Furthermore, cherry stalks are used for the preparation of medicinal compositions. They become the best medicine for worms. Grind, measure out 1 teaspoon, boil with boiling water and let it ferment for at least 30 minutes. Then you can start drinking the infusion to fight worms.
It is recommended to consume 0. 5 cup in the morning before breakfast and in the evening. Sometimes it is suggested to divide the daily dose into 4 doses. The course of treatment is usually 7 days, so you need a 1 week break and repeated use of the medicine for all worms within 7 days. This herbal preparation not only promotes the elimination of worms, but also has a tonic effect on the stomach, stimulates appetite and improves digestive processes.
Raw rice is also effective against worms. Take 1 handful of raw rice and chew it well for a long period of time. This manipulation must be repeated within a week.
When used correctly, herring becomes an anthelmintic drug, so it is often used at home. For a therapeutic effect, it is necessary to eat as much herring as possible at night and, in the morning, supplement the effect with the use of 50 g of pumpkin seeds.
Another recipe for anthelmintics includes honey treatments. To do this, mix a tablespoon of the product with a glass of hot water and let it cool until heated up.
They drink this worm solution on an empty stomach - 1 time a day in the morning, before breakfast. For maximum effect in fighting worms, experts advise drinking a glass of wormwood infusion after 20 minutes and, after 30 minutes, having a cleansing enema.
Oils from walnuts, macadamia nuts and other plant components have a choleretic effect, removing various toxins from the intestines, including interrupting the vital activity of worms in the human body.
Worm enemas have long been recognized as the best way to clean the bowels, as well as for a quick healing effect.
For enemas, the same herbal preparations are used for infusions, however the proportions in the recipes may be different. For example, to prepare a useful infusion for worms, dried tansy inflorescences need to be poured with boiling water in the following proportion: 1 teaspoon of herbs in half a glass of water. After 3 hours of infusion, the solution can be filtered and, for use as an enema, can be heated in a water bath. The infusion is injected into the rectum at night. The treatment period for worms is 7 days.
Rules for defining an enema with herbal preparations:
- Many techniques involve the preliminary use of cleansing enemas. This tool is needed to completely clean the intestines and prepare the gastrointestinal tract for the effects of a therapeutic worm enema.
- It is necessary to completely filter the agent and make sure that no plant particles remain in the solution. Under the pressure of an enema, small debris from the stem or inflorescences can enter the intestine, causing irritation of the mucous membrane or even violation of its integrity.
- It is important that the enema solution is warm and matches your body temperature - around 36-37 degrees. This will provide a gentle effect of traditional medicine on the intestinal mucosa and the maximum therapeutic effect: the beneficial properties of herbs are best "revealed" at this temperature.
- The number of medicinal enema sessions is determined individually, depending on the degree of worm infestation and the type of worm.
The advantage of the enema is that, with this method of application, the drug has no negative effect on the gastric mucosa, liver and kidneys. Acting locally, an enema remedy for worms promotes a rapid onset of therapeutic effect and guarantees the absence of generalized adverse reactions.
Prevention with folk remedies
Traditional medicine is effective not only in treating worm infections, but also in preventing the worms from penetrating the body. For this, it is important to follow a healthy diet, periodically adding to the diet any herbal medicine with proven efficacy as a preventive measure against most worms.
These foods include high-fiber vegetables such as cabbage, squash, cucumbers, as well as onions and garlic. Every day, everyone is recommended to add vegetables to dishes - dill, parsley, chives. Raw pumpkin seeds are a great way to prevent worms if consumed daily on an empty stomach, chewing the seeds well. Fresh carrot juice also prevents parasitic diseases. You can also grate the vegetable root and add sour cream or vegetable oil to it.
It has been proven that the appearance of worms can be avoided if all precautions are carefully followed:
- wash your hands well when coming back from the street and using the bathroom;
- always wash vegetables and fruits before eating;
- thermally process all types of meat and fish;
- be wary of dishes that contain raw fish;
- make individual dishes for each person (in the family, at work);
- it is imperative to prophylactically treat worms in animals in order to prevent the development of worm infections and the transmission of parasites to humans;
- do not swim in unknown bodies of water, the safety of water in which it has not been proven;
- keep the house clean, monitor the hygiene of pets;
- refuse natural fertilizers of unknown origin during gardening work.
For the treatment to be effective, it is necessary to follow the basic rules for the use of anthelmintics in traditional medicine, observe the indicated dosages and carefully monitor the dynamics of disease development.
Also, it is important to treat the worms with the whole family at the same time. This will make it possible to completely save all loved ones from an unpleasant illness. There is nothing wrong with helminthiasis in adults: you just need to comprehensively address the solution to the problem and, in the future, follow all measures to prevent infection by parasites.
