A note about Symptoms of Parasites - Common Signs
In natural health and healing, we believe in holistic health and healing, as we realize that different parts of the human body are highly interlinked, often beyond Man's understanding. We also believe that the body has the ability to heal itself of any disease, even supposedly incurable diseases.
In order to do so, the body needs the support of some basic dietary and lifestyle good health habits, such as a full body detox and a proper understanding and application of nutrition. No matter how remote or unrelated a health condition may seem, these fundamental health steps will greatly magnify the effects and benefits of any of our health-promoting efforts, including the use of specific natural health remedies.
Then, there are those times when it gets worse, much worse, and you just know that something is amiss. If youve never suffered from any gastrointestinal disorder, then this can be quite alarming, and theres good reason to worry. Even in the most modern culture with all of the amenities, you can find a good sampling of people who suffer from some form of parasitic infestation.
Diagnosis of the Pesky Creature
The problem with a parasitic infestation is that the symptoms mirror that of many other gastrointestinal disorders. It can start off rather slow, with minor symptoms such as a stomach ache, and when an individual gets something like this, they usually tend to blow it off.
As other symptoms of parasites, such as diarrhea or constipation, develop, this is the point in which most people feel that they have the stomach flu. In some cases, this can be as bad as it gets, and an individual may never know that they were afflicted with a parasite within their body. This is the best case scenario, because it means that the parasite may have moved out and you suffered minimal symptoms of parasites as a result. It is at this point that you may even be able to see the parasite being passed.
The problem can and often will get much worse, though. When the minor symptoms start turning into cramping, severe abdominal pain, dizziness, change in eating habits, bloating, weight loss, and even vomiting, its time to seek professional help.
Its a rather scary scenario, as most doctors arent trained to look out for or pick up on parasites within the human body. Add to that the fact that many lab tests will not even pick up on such parasites within the body, and youve got a real problem. This is the point in the process where many individuals are misdiagnosed and therefore receive improper treatment.
When Bad Gets Worse
Medication may help to alleviate some of the aforementioned symptoms; it may even kill the parasites within. However, in some instances, the symptoms can get worse. The real problem comes in when the parasite lays eggs within the intestines, and that means you now have a parasitic problem of mass proportions.
Itching, particularly around the anus, is quite common with parasites within the human body. One can also suffer from interrupted sleep, even insomnia, in the most extreme circumstances. In children, this can turn into hyperactivity that can again be improperly diagnosed.
When the pain gets unbearable or you are suffering from some of the most extreme symptoms of parasites such as coughing up blood, fever, or facial swelling, you truly need to seek out the best cure for your condition.
Before things get out of hand, it may very well be worth performing a cleansing program. This can be done when potential symptoms of parasites are minimal, just to be sure that you rid the body of any toxins, which would include parasites.
Its better to be on the safe side and getting rid of any foreign substances or parasites that lurk within your body can prevent bigger problems from developing later. If you suspect a parasitic infestation, seeking professional attention and performing a cleansing program can bring you some peace of mind and hopefully some relief from the symptoms you are suffering from.
Alternatively, if your symptoms of parasites are still not that severe, you could also attempt home and natural remedies for getting rid of parasites. Refer to the other related parasite pages for more information.
