A Natural Approach To Health
Living With Worms
I had a question the other day about worms.
Worms are parasites living in your gastrointestinal tract.
The most common types of worms are roundworms and tapeworms.
Roundworms are contagious intestinal parasites shaped like earthworms but smaller in size.
They can easily be seen with the naked eye.
Pinworms are white, threadlike worms about 1/3″ long.
In the U.S., pinworms in young children is the most prevalent parasitic worm problem.
Tapeworms vary in length from 1″ up to 30′ and can survive for up to 25 years in your body.
Depending on the type of worm and the severity of infestation, there may be a variety of symptoms.
In some cases, there may be no noticeable symptoms at all.
In other cases, worms may be seen in your stool.
Pinworms can cause severe anal itching (especially at night, because the worms tend to migrate outside your anus to lay their eggs), insomnia, and restlessness.
Hookworms can cause itching on the soles of your feet, and in some cases, bloody sputum, fever, rash, and loss of appetite.
Threadworms can cause coughing or bronchitis, abdominal pain, diarrhea, and gas, preceded by tiny red abrasions that sometimes itch.
Small tapeworms can cause weight and appetite loss, abdominal pain, vomiting, and diarrhea.
Large tapeworms can cause similar symptoms, but usually without weight loss.
Ascariasis, caused by ascarids, can cause bloating, stomach pain, vomiting, and difficulty breathing.
Worm infestations can range from mild to severe, even life-threatening, especially in children.
They result in poor absorption of essential nutrients, and in some cases loss of blood from your gastrointestinal tract.
Which mean they can lead to deficiency-related disorders like anemia and growth problems.
Malabsorption from parasitic infection makes you susceptible to many diseases because it causes diminished immune function.
Worms can be contracted through a variety of mechanisms, including improper disposal of human or animal waste, walking barefoot on contaminated soil, and ingestion of eggs or larvae from uncooked or partially cooked meat.
In some cases, eggs may become airborne and be inhaled.
Parasites are more common than most people think, and they can cause many illnesses, including colon disorders.
They’re more common in children than in adults.
They’re also common in people with AIDS, chronic fatigue syndrome, candidiasis, and many other disorders.
Unfortunately, physicians often don’t check for worms.
To deal with worms, it’s beneficial to:
*Drink 8-10 cups of purified water daily, with Performance, to stay hydrated and flush toxins.
*Aloe vera juice, taken twice daily as directed on the label, has an alkalinizing and anti-inflammatory effect.
*Black walnut extract destroys many types of worms. Take black walnut extract on an empty stomach 3 times per day.
*Butternut bark, fennel seed, flaxseed, and senna leaf are good for bowel and colon cleansing.
*Calendula ointment or witch hazel can be used to help relieve anal itching and irritation.
*Cascara sagrada, ficus, gentian root, mugwort, mullein oil, parsley, pau d’arco, rhubarb root, slippery elm, thyme, and valerian are effective against many types of worms.
*Cayenne, garlic, and turmeric help to strengthen your immune system and destroy many types of worms.
*Grapefruit seed extract is very effective for destroying parasites. It can be taken internally and is also good for washing vegetables before eating (mix 10 drops of extract in 2 quarts of water) to remove any bacteria or parasites.
*Pinkroot works well against roundworms.
*Pumpkin extract contains zinc and helps expel worms.
*Eat a high-fiber diet consisting mainly of raw vegetables and whole grains.
*Eat pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, and figs (or drink fig juice) on an empty stomach 3 times per day. This can be combined with the black walnut extract mentioned above.
*Eliminate all sugar, refined carbohydrates, fruits (except figs and pineapples), and pork and pork products from your diet until the worms have been completely eradicated. Worms thrive on sugar.
*For tapeworms, fast for 3 days on raw pineapple. The bromelain in pineapple destroys tapeworms.
*Drink lots of papaya juice.
*For pinworms, eat bitter melon, a cucumber-shaped vegetable found in Asian markets. This is effective against pinworms and is a good immune system strengthener. Eat 1-2 melons a day for 7-10 days. Do this again after 2 months to ensure the infestation hasn’t returned.
Never eat meat, fish, or poultry that isn’t fully cooked or that’s been left out at room temperature for too long. Sushi is usually safe, but not always.
*Take a warm bath using 1/2 cup of Epsom salts per gallon of water. Before getting into the water, apply zinc oxide to the opening of your anus. Repeat for 3 days in a row.
*Have pet cats and dogs checked and, if appropriate, treated for parasites when you first get them, and in the spring and fall of each year thereafter.
*Always wear shoes in soiled areas.
*Keep meticulous personal hygiene. Avoid scratching your anal area, and wash your hands frequently, preferably with antibacterial soap, scrubbing well under your fingernails. If children are affected, teach them proper hygiene as well.
*Wash all utensils and surfaces coming in contact with raw meat, pork, or fish with antibacterial soap.
*Wash underwear, bed linens, and towels after each use in very hot water. Change linens and towels daily.
