How to De-worm Your­self Nat­u­ral­ly?

Par­a­sitic or intesti­nal worms are behind many health chal­lenges peo­ple face; they can cause a lot of prob­lems includ­ing diges­tive prob­lems.

Some com­mon types of par­a­sitic worms found in man are flukes, tape­worms, hook­worm, round­worms and oth­er types of inter­nal par­a­sites.

If they are not quick­ly elim­i­nat­ed from the body, they can cause a lot of health prob­lems like ane­mia, intesti­nal blockages,digestive dis­or­ders, it caus­es infec­tion in preg­nant women and fre­quent com­pli­ca­tions can occur in those with sup­pressed immune sys­tems like those liv­ing with HIV or AIDS.

Signs and symp­toms of intesti­nal worms

Signs and symp­toms indi­cat­ing the pres­ence of worms in the body include unex­plained weight loss, itch­ing in the abdomen, abdom­i­nal cramps, pains and ten­der­ness; bloat­ing, fatigue, diar­rhea, nau­sea and vom­it­ing, dysen­tery, rash or itch­ing around the vul­va or rec­tum, fre­quent hunger and pass­ing out worms in your stool.

They can also cause crav­ings for a high amount of sug­ar; headaches, head sores, con­stant hunger pangs despite eat­ing, desire to eat unnat­ur­al things, seizures and itchy but­tocks.

It is pos­si­ble for one to have worms for a long peri­od of time (years) with­out hav­ing or feel­ing any of the above symp­toms.

Causes/risk fac­tors

There are caus­es or risk fac­tors that make it easy for worms or their eggs to enter the body and some of them are:

  • Eat­ing raw or under­cooked meat of an infect­ed ani­mal.
  • Drink­ing con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed water
  • Con­sump­tion of con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed soil; that is why it is impor­tant to thor­ough­ly wash fruits and veg­eta­bles before con­sum­ing them.
  • Com­ing in con­tact with con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed feces
  • Poor per­son­al hygiene
  • Poor san­i­ta­tion around your home and envi­ron­ment

Chil­dren are at greater risk of hav­ing worms and they are more sus­cep­ti­ble to intesti­nal infec­tions because they play in soil that can be con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed.

Old­er adults are at low­er risk of hav­ing worms; the adults who have high­er risks are those with a weak­ened or sup­pressed immune sys­tem.

It is esti­mat­ed that 10% of peo­ple in devel­op­ing coun­tries have intesti­nal infec­tions caused by worms; they get this most­ly by drink­ing con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed water and their envi­ron­ment are most­ly dirty.

Once some­one comes in con­tact with the con­t­a­m­i­nant; it enters into the body and heads straight to the intestines where they grow and repro­duce.

There can repro­duce and increase in size and become so many that they start inter­rupt­ing nor­mal meta­bol­ic func­tions; their waste prod­ucts are tox­ic and can cause a lot of dis­rup­tions in cel­lu­lar func­tions and meta­bol­ic activ­i­ties. This is when the symp­toms start to appear.

Nat­ur­al ways to de-worm your­self

Deworm­ing, also known as drench­ing is the process of remov­ing intesti­nal worms and par­a­sites from the body. Below are effec­tive nat­ur­al things that can expel worms and par­a­sites from the body.

Papaya seeds: These seeds con­tain pow­er­ful com­pounds like caricin, Carpaine, and an enzyme called myrosin; these com­pounds kill par­a­sites, con­tract the intestines, expel the tox­ins secret­ed by these par­a­sites as waste prod­ucts and reduce inflam­ma­tion caused by the waste prod­ucts of these worms.

You can eat fresh paw­paw seeds got­ten from the fruits and you can also take dry paw­paw seeds with yogurt.

Cucum­ber seeds: These are effec­tive in remov­ing tape­worm from the diges­tive tract; this is due to their rich con­tent of enzymes. Eat lots of these seeds dai­ly until you get the desired result.

Pineap­ples: The brome­lain con­tained in this fruit helps in expelling tape­worms from the body; it also expels the waste prod­ucts and free rad­i­cals pro­duced by these worms, it also starves these worms by reduc­ing the amount of glu­cose avail­able to them.

Cloves: The active com­pound in this herb is Eugenol; it is regard­ed as the most pow­er­ful ger­mi­cide in the plant king­dom; it con­tains anoth­er com­pound called caryophyl­lene which is a strong antimi­cro­bial agent.

These com­pounds kill par­a­sites, along with their eggs and lar­vae.

Lemon juice and banana: Crush one banana and mix it with a table­spoon of lemon juice; banana is a nat­ur­al lax­a­tive that can expel worms.

It also con­tains a good amount of oligosac­cha­rides which con­tracts the intestines; lemon juice kills the par­a­sites because of its antibac­te­r­i­al and antipro­to­zoal effects.

Gin­ger: This pow­er­ful herb kills par­a­sites; it reduces their symp­toms like cramps, pains, nau­sea, vom­it­ing and bloat­ing. It increas­es the pro­duc­tion of stom­ach acid which kills these bad worms.

It pre­vents infec­tion by par­a­sites in the first place when tak­en reg­u­lar­ly; it also warms the diges­tive sys­tem and elim­i­nates mucus.

Pome­gran­ates: This helps to clean the intestines and get rid of worms; take at least five glass­es of pome­gran­ate juice a day when you notice one or more of the signs.

Cayenne pep­per: This hot spice kills par­a­sites; molds and fun­gus when it comes in con­tact with them; it boosts the effec­tive­ness of oth­er herbs when com­bined with them.

Mix African cayenne, sprout­ed pump­kin seeds and gin­ger to expel intesti­nal worms.

Pump­kin seeds: These seeds con­tain cucur­bitacins; this com­pound kills intesti­nal worms by destroy­ing their ner­vous sys­tem, this affects their growth and makes them die fast.

These seeds con­tain oth­er com­pounds that kill worms; take 15 or more seeds a day till you see improve­ment.

Black wal­nut: The green hulls of black wal­nut can kill many vari­eties of par­a­sites; it has been used for cen­turies to expel vari­eties of worms.

It is effec­tive against tape­worm and pin­worms; it is also used to treat can­di­da albi­cans which caus­es yeast infec­tion and Plas­mod­i­um which caus­es malar­ia.

Take an alco­hol tinc­ture of this herb thrice dai­ly.

Cas­tor oil: This induce diar­rhea and in the process, it flush­es out all worms; take two table­spoons of cas­tor oil dai­ly on an emp­ty stom­ach, this is more effec­tive.

Check with a doc­tor before using this rem­e­dy because it can’t work on all worms. It makes cas­es of hook­worm worse because hook­worm attach­es itself to the intes­tine and it digs deep­er when the host is hav­ing diar­rhea. This can lead to more pains.

Car­om seeds: These seeds are rich in thy­mol; this com­pound inhibits the growth of intesti­nal worms.

Gar­lic: The active com­pound in gar­lic called Allicin can kill intesti­nal worms; take two cloves of gar­lic dai­ly till you see improve­ment.

Neem: This is an effec­tive nat­ur­al rem­e­dy for all types of intesti­nal worms and par­a­sites; it kills the par­a­sites and elim­i­nates the tox­ins they release in the body. Take neem tea twice dai­ly to get rid of par­a­sites.

Coconut oil: Caprylic acid con­tained in this oil has medi­um-chain fat­ty acids that can kill par­a­sites. A tea­spoon of coconut dai­ly will help.

Car­rots: The beta-carotene con­tained in car­rots can destroy the eggs and lar­vae of intesti­nal worms; it also boosts the immune sys­tem and help the body fight off the par­a­site.

Eat car­rots or drink car­rots juice on an emp­ty stom­ach every morn­ing; don’t eat any­thing else until lunch. Do this for at least one week.

Oil of oregano: Con­tains car­vacrol and thy­mol; these two com­pounds help treat par­a­sitic infec­tions.

Echi­nacea: This herb boosts immune func­tions and helps the body to kill par­a­sites and for­eign invaders; it helps in the pro­duc­tion of white blood cells which kills and destroys these par­a­sites.

Take Echi­nacea tea or you can take 500 mg of the cap­sule dai­ly.

Turmer­ic: turmer­ic clears the body and keeps it clean from worms, par­a­sites, and pathogens; Cur­cum­in, its active ingre­di­ent dis­ease-caus­ing bac­te­ria, and worms.

You can take turmer­ic tea or you can take 500 mg of the cap­sule dai­ly.

Bear­ber­ry: Also known as Uva ursi; it con­tains a com­pound called Arbutin. It has a bac­te­ri­ci­dal effect and there­by rids the intes­tine of worms.

It kills them by dis­rupt­ing their cell wall and inhibit­ing repair. Take 800 mg of the cap­sule and make sure you eat when you take it.

After de-worm­ing, remem­ber to take pro­bi­otics because some of these herbs knock out every­thing, includ­ing the good bac­te­ria that are ben­e­fi­cial to the body.

Take lots of fer­ment­ed foods, and organ­ic unsweet­ened yogurt. Also, remem­ber to rest and sleep well because the body repairs itself dur­ing this time. And remem­ber to drink plen­ty water.

How to pre­vent get­ting worms

Below are effec­tive ways to pre­vent intesti­nal worms and infec­tions:

  • Have a good per­son­al hygiene
  • Keep your home and sur­round­ings clean
  • Prac­tice reg­u­lar wash­ing of hands espe­cial­ly after using the toi­let and before eat­ing; it is even advis­able to wash your hands before prepar­ing meals.
  • Wash fruits and veg­eta­bles thor­ough­ly before eat­ing
  • Wash and cook all meats thor­ough­ly
  • Avoid eat­ing raw fish
  • Wash and recook any food that falls on the floor
  • Avoid com­ing in direct con­tact with soil because it may be con­t­a­m­i­nat­ed.

Please make sure you see a doc­tor imme­di­ate­ly:

  • If you vom­it dai­ly or many times a day
  • If you feel dehy­drat­ed despite drink­ing water
  • If you are expe­ri­enc­ing fatigue even when you don’t work
  • If you have a high body tem­per­a­ture
  • If you see blood or pus in your stool

Note that con­stant inva­sion by par­a­sites and con­stant elim­i­na­tion of par­a­site is part of life; that is why we should make it a point of duty to de-worm our­selves reg­u­lar­ly. This will help us to have at least few num­bers of bad worms.
