In biology, parasites are organisms whose vital activity is at the expense of the resources of other, usually better organized, life forms. In an everyday sense, this term is commonly used to refer to protozoa and helminths in the human body.
At first glance, parasitic invasions are a rare and marginal phenomenon in the modern world. With the development of medicine, the improvement of hygienic practices and urbanization, it seems to be a thing of the past. This view is somewhat misleading: Internet stories about "parasites" actually have little to do with reality, but even today there is a fairly high risk of becoming a carrier of unwanted fauna. Pet owners, lovers of exotic food and travel, children and those who ignore standard hygiene procedures are particularly susceptible to infections.
- skin rashes of unknown origin, dermatitis, acne;
- dyspeptic disorders, heartburn, nausea, sudden weight gain, digestive problems;
- headache and dizziness;
- brittleness of nails, deterioration of hair, premature aging of skin;
- deterioration of immunity and resistance to disease, regular herpes outbreaks, colds;
- general deterioration of health: dysthymic phenomena, nervousness, depression.
Most commonly, helminths and protozoa live in the digestive tract and liver. Parasites can remain almost unnoticed in the body for years or, on the contrary, cause tangible problems a month after infection. Parasites in one way or another deplete the human body, destroying the beneficial inner flora, disrupting the absorption of food nutrients, and destroying body systems. Their long stay in the human body poses extremely serious health problems, and parasitic infections in children can lead to marked delays in physical development and impaired regulation of the nervous system.
To cleanse the body of parasites, the help of professional doctors is most often needed. If you suspect they are present, see a doctor immediately and start appropriate treatment. Many natural remedies have been shown to be effective against parasites. They can accelerate healing, provide additional support in drug therapy, and prevent infections. The advantage of natural drugs over synthetic ones is that they are less toxic, inexpensive, and easy to use. However, you should use folk remedies carefully: if you are making antiprasitic drugs at home, you should follow the instructions. Too low a dose of active plant materials will not achieve the desired effect and will promote the development of parasite resistance and may lead to overdose.
