This is the question that worries everyone and we will try to answer it.
To understand what it is, you need to determine how worms appear and how to treat them:
- they enter the human body because it is infected through the external environment by lower multicellular organisms, parasitic worms;
- Parasites or helminths are found in insects, fungi and plants, as well as in vertebrates;
- Helminths are found in 60% of the population, but this is not the worst thing, because in people of Asian origin, laboratory diagnostics doctors find 100% infection with various forms of helminths.
As products of their vital activity, they cause all sorts of ailments in humans. Eliminating these symptoms is our direct task, since worms suppress vital activity in an adult and even reduce motor activity.
From worms there are all kinds of side effects in an adult. How to get rid of this scourge and how to treat worms, let's try to understand the recommendations of experts.
symptoms of the disease
You need to make sure from the very beginning that a person has worms by external signs. To do this, you need to know the following symptoms of infection:
- acne on the skin;
- weight and its changes with increased appetite;
- unstable chair;
- bad breath, increased gas and belching;
- headache and irritability;
- uncharacteristic smell of feces and urine;

These symptoms should alarm any person and make you think about consulting a professional. Only a specialist in the field of diagnosing such diseases can answer the question of how to treat a specific parasitic infection in adults.
Types of parasites in humans
In order to know how to treat, it is important to understand what type of parasite in adults we are dealing with. There are a number of types of helminth invasions, differing both in symptoms and in their effects on the human body.
There are the following types of parasites:
- Pinworms, itching in the anus, are a sign of infection with small roundworms;
- Trichinella, penetrate through the vessels into the muscle mass, causing swelling and pain;
- whipworm, a source of problems with the gastrointestinal tract;
- tapeworms, various types of large-length tapeworms;
- Roundworms, long enough, roundworms that cause problems with the respiratory and bile ducts.
All types of these invasions are associated with the use of insufficiently thermally processed food and non-compliance with hygiene rules. The presence of pets often leads to parasite infestation.
The attending physician, who discovered the symptoms of the physical damage, must confirm the diagnosis with the help of laboratory tests. Swabs from the anal area, fecal tests for worm eggs, enzyme immunoassay, endoscopy and ultrasound are used for this purpose.
People who want to be cured from an annoying problem choose either a medical method or traditional medicine. It should be noted that the combined treatment of worms, after consultation with the observing doctor, is also effective.
Medicines against worms are prescribed by a specialist based on the results of laboratory tests and personal experience.
In itself, the presence of worms in an adult is not a diagnosis of a complex disease, and it is not the body that needs treatment, but the removal of parasites from it that interfere with its normal functioning.
Therefore, drugs against worms are aimed at suppressing the functions of their vital activity or the ability to absorb nutrients, which leads to their death.
According to this principle, they are divided into the following types:
- in the muscle tissue of parasites, the drug blocks nerve impulses;
- do not allow the absorption of glucose, which leads to the death of parasites;
- blocks the intestines of worms;
- impair mobility.
In addition, drugs are broadly targeted and narrowly focused on a specific type of parasite. Based on experience, treatment methods and laboratory results, the attending physician selects a specific drug for each case.
Prolonged action antiparasitic drugs are used to disrupt their growth by blocking metabolic processes.
A narrower selection of anthelmintics affects tapeworms.
In addition to preparations for worms, funds are used that eliminate the body's allergic reactions when treating invasions. They allow to reduce the general intoxication of the body when eliminating worms in adults and are aimed at reducing symptomatic phenomena. Drugs for treating the patient, as well as the method of taking them, are selected by the doctor individually, taking into account the course of helminthiasis.
Medicines containing mebendazole are used for enterobiasis and trichuriasis. Drugs containing diethylcarbamazine are useful in the treatment of filariasis, including diseases of the organs of vision and the lymphatic system. Drugs containing levamisole are used for hookworm and ascariasis. Bephenia hydroxynaphthoate is used against roundworms. And Piperazine Adipate has a good effect on Ascaris and Enterobiasis.
Tablet preparations with albendazole bring relief from echinococci and cysticercosis. In difficult cases of helminthiasis, therapy is carried out with: Hemodez, glucose solutions. Cordiamine is used for high blood pressure.
The attending physician can prescribe the necessary treatment, choosing from a variety of medicines a drug that is suitable for a particular case. It is very important not to hide the problem and at the slightest symptoms resembling infection with worms, consult a doctor.
Drug treatment, while effective, has side effects. There are people for whom drugs are contraindicated.
For this case, we will consider non-drug treatment methods, namely:
- oxygen treatment;
- Treatment based on alcoholic beverages.
Ayurveda not only normalizes vitality and raises the general tone of the body, but also serves as a method of eliminating worms.
According to the adherents of this doctrine, the cause of infection with helminths is the lack of hygiene and purity of thoughts. Impure, evil thoughts, laziness and depression are the causes of a decrease in the body's resistance to external influences.
Exercises that saturate the human body with cosmic energy help to maintain health and find inner balance. At the same time, it is important to cleanse the body of toxins with the help of laxative decoctions, and then use hot spices and decoctions with food. Thyme, wormwood and St. John's wort are very useful. After a week, you can repeat the laxative decoctions again so that the parasites leave your body.
Oxygen treatment has long been known as a way to expel helminths from the human body. The essence of the process is that a special tube is inserted into the esophagus and oxygen is pumped through it. This process is repeated for several days and promotes the expulsion of parasites while saturating the cells of the gastrointestinal tract with oxygen.
Ozone therapy is also used for this, but the tube is inserted into the anus and an ozone-oxygen mixture is supplied, which has a paralyzing effect on parasites. It is also possible to use enemas with olive oil and ozone. These types of treatments allow you to get rid of worms very effectively.
For an alternative treatment, use a mixture of cognac and tea in equal proportions and drink it on an empty stomach along with a laxative. A large tablespoon of cognac is drunk for five days, and a second course is taken ten days later.
A good remedy for helminths is vodka with garlic buds in it. It is applied with a large tablespoon for ten days.
