How does the infection occur?

Familiar from childhood, the rule of washing hands before meals is not the only warning of the source of dangerous infections. Dirty fingers and palms are the fastest way for worms to get into the body, so pay close attention to it. The mechanism of helminthic infection of the body has been thoroughly studied in medicine, so a civilized person needs to know about other sources of latent threat:

  • domestic animals - the larvae of parasites are found not only in the feces falling into the ground, but into the human body through dirty hands. They are housed in wool, and when everyone’s favorite pet is free to move around the house, sleeping on sofas and beds like a family member, they involuntarily leave worm eggs on carpets, toys, furniture. The danger is that the viability of larvae, such as roundworms, without settling in a favorable environment is up to 6 months. Therefore, the presence of a cat or dog in the house requires parents and children to take pills against human parasites;
  • vegetables, fruits, herbs - both freshly picked from the garden and on the shelves of shops and markets, on the surface of which soil contaminated with helminths may have come to the surface;
  • private and public restrooms - visiting toilets requires thorough hand washing after completing the necessary procedures;
  • vegetable gardens, cottages, fields, children's sandpits are the main source of the spread of globular worms (pinworms and ascaris) for which drugs offer anti-parasitic tablets such as Pirantel, Levamisole, Mebendazole and others.
  • contamination of fresh meat and fish by incorrect or insufficient heat treatment of the products;
  • drinking water from inconvenient sources;
  • swimming in water bodies in the immediate vicinity of the cattle grazing area;
  • flies and other insects that carry parasitic larvae on their paws.

Medical practice shows that the peak of helminthic invasion occurs in spring and autumn, so by this time, all home medical offices should include anti-parasite pills in the human body.

Knowledge of the origin and habitat nature of helminths indicates that favorable climatic conditions are required for the development of parasites. But the infection can occur anywhere in the world, even in the eternal cold of Antarctica, if you eat unwashed apples shipped from the Great Earth.

Remedy for parasites in the human body: tablets and the principle of treatment

According to annual statistics from the World Health Organization (WHO), helminthic infection affects more than 1. 2 billion people and there are about 4. 3 billion chronically infected people. As a form of helminthiasis, non-cotorosis, hookworm infection, and ascariasis are more common than others. However, high infection rates are a key factor in the rapid spread of the disease.

At first glance, the "childish" problem has more "adult" consequences. The disease affects the physical and emotional development of children as well as the condition of adults. Helmamples that parasitize the body and disrupt the normal functioning of the body weaken the immune system, make a person slow, reduce their ability to work and their resistance to somatic diseases.

This unpleasant "neighborhood" that causes constant newsletters affects productivity. It’s hard to believe, but the helminth invasion ranks fourth in the ranking of diseases called "culprits" of tangible economic damage.

Therefore, scientific medicine and modern medicine have been given the task of finding effective antiparasitic tablets in the bodies of children and adults so that intestinal helminthiasis does not become an epidemic of the new century.

The main principle of action of drugs is to influence the parasite in the form of blocking the musculoskeletal system by suppressing the metabolic function of glucose in the cells of worms.

The onset of anthelmintic therapy is preceded by diagnostic measures that help determine the type of worm and prescribe appropriate treatment.

What pills do parasitologists recommend?

Types of helminths Drug law Contraindications
Roundworms Albendazole, Pirantel, Mebendazole, Levamisole It has a paralyzing effect on adult worms and its remnants dissolve completely Pregnant women should not take; one day before drinking alcohol; may cause diarrhea; has toxic effects on the kidneys and liver.
Ribbon (bovine and porcine tapeworm, echinococcus, broad tapeworm)

Lapos (opisthorchs)

Praziquantel, Niclosamide They affect adults, larvae and eggs, paralyzing their activity.

Decomposition products of helminths cause severe poisoning in the body, so therapy is most often performed in a hospital under the supervision of a doctor.

The drugs have a high degree of toxicity, so complications are possible in the liver, kidneys and gastrointestinal tract.

Elimination of helminth samples and supportive immunotherapy during the rehabilitation period are required.

Traditional parasite pills or alternative methods: which is better?

When a patient decides to take medications, he or she must understand that the composition of such medications is unnatural substances that are obtained by chemical synthesis. Therefore, they should not be absolutely harmless, as the instructions for the drug necessarily indicate in the form of contraindications.

Gentle and safe for the body, including pregnant women and children, folk recipes that contain natural products - garlic, onion, pumpkin, tansy, walnuts and others. However, compared to anti-parasitic tablets in the human body, they require time-consuming preparation and longer dosing.

Taking into account the wishes of patients seeking rapid and safe removal of helminth samples, special antiparasitic dietary supplements have been developed that combine the results of drugs with the safety of natural ingredients.

The treatment of parasites in the human body, which are presented in the form of a tablet dietary supplement, not only allows the complete cleansing of the bodies of unwanted "guests". The special composition of the product provides reliable protection for organs and body systems from the intrusion of worms. Therefore, therapy is simultaneously a prevention that allows you to create an unfavorable environment for the entry and development of various worms.

Dietary supplements have virtually no contraindications except for individual intolerance to the ingredients, are pleasant to taste, and easy to use. This makes them a worthy alternative to traditional medicines, allowing the "inconvenient" problem to be solved quickly and easily.
