At some point in their lives, over half of all humans will be infected with an intestinal parasite. The signs and worms symptoms in human will be unrecognizable to many of us because they can occur weeks after the initial infection. Parasite worms are especially common in less developed countries where the standards of food preparation and personal hygiene are lowered.But these types of harmful invaders are not just limited to these nations and are quite common in the United States,such as pinworms, roundworms, hookworms, and tapeworms.
The most common symptoms of a parasite infection in human include constipation, diarrhoea,nervousness and sleep disorders, immune system dysfunction and impossibility to lose weight despite intense diet and exercise,also known as chronic obesity.
1. What is constipation?
For some people, for example, constipation means a sense of incomplete emptying after a bowel movement. For others, it simply means infrequent stools, or hard stools. The truth is, some parasitic worms are large enough to physically block the passage of nutrients and make bowel movements difficult.
Having 3 or more loose or liquid stools per day would be a definition of diarrhoea. The loss of fluids through diarrhoea can cause dehydration and electrolyte imbalances. We can separate two types of diarrhoea.
Absolute diarrhoea is having more bowel movements than normal, or any number of stools greater than three.
Relative diarrhoea is having more bowel movements than usual. For example, if someone who usually has one bowel movement each day begins to have two bowel movements each day, then diarrhoea is present-even though there are not more than three bowel movements a day.
3. Nervousness and Sleep Disorders
Intestinal worms release toxic substances into the body’s system.These toxins may irritate the central nervous system resulting in restlessness, nervousness, and anxiety. In the night, the body works to eliminate toxins via the liver. Parasitic infections can interrupt this process and upset the rhythms of the body.
4. Immune System Dysfunction
Problems with the immune system can cause illness and infection. In most cases, the immune system does a great job of keeping people healthy. But sometimes, when you have a parasite living inside of you, the system is forced to operate with a small supply of vitamins and energy sources. In this condition, the body is vulnerable to attacks from bacteria, fungus, virus and other harmful invaders.
5. Chronic obesity
The reason some people can’t lose weight has nothing to do, believe it or not, with their will power, over-eating or the right diet. Their obesity is caused by parasites and horrible little worms, living in their guts. They use human body as a ‘Food Storehouse’ and so they can live and breed by the millions.
In other words, these parasites are making you a giant ‘food factory’ for them to eat! Some people are just getting fatter and fatter and more unhealthy, spending thousands of dollars on diet pills and all kinds of weight loss programs. Perhaps, they will never get to the core of the problem, and doctors, diet food companies and health professionals will be happy about it. It is time to change it!
