In biology, parasites are organisms whose life activity occurs at the expense of the resources of other, more organized life forms, as a rule. In an everyday sense, the term is often used in relation to protozoa and helminths that live in the human body.
At first glance, parasitic invasions in the modern world are a rare and marginal phenomenon. It seems that with the development of medicine, the improvement of hygiene practices and urbanization, they are a thing of the past. This opinion is somewhat misleading: Internet stories of "a pile of parasites" really have little to do with reality, but even today there is a fairly high risk of becoming a carrier of animals. unexpected. Pet owners, exotic food enthusiasts and travellers, children, and those who ignore standard hygiene procedures are especially susceptible. The most common signs of a parasitic infection include:
- unexplained skin rashes, dermatitis, acne;
- digestive upset, heartburn, nausea, sudden weight gain, digestive problems;
- headache and dizziness;
- brittle nails, damaged hair, premature skin aging;
- reduced immunity and resistance to diseases, frequent rashes, colds;
- general deterioration of health: arrhythmia, nervousness, coma.
Normally, helminths and protozoa live in the digestive organs and liver. The parasite can remain in the body for years barely noticeable or, conversely, create visible problems a month after infection. One way or another, parasites deplete the human body, destroy the beneficial flora inside, interfere with the absorption of nutrients by food, and destroy body systems. Their long persistence in the human body threatens to be extremely serious health problems, and infection in children can lead to physical retardation and impaired neuroregulation. .
Cleaning the body from parasites, most often, requires the help of professional doctors. If you suspect they appear, you should immediately consult a doctor and initiate appropriate treatment. Many natural remedies have been shown to be effective against parasites. They can also speed recovery, further aid in drug treatment and prevent infection. The advantages of natural drugs over synthetic drugs are that they are less toxic, cheap and easy to use. However, care should be taken when using folk remedies: when making your own antipyretic at home, you must follow the instructions. Too small a dose of the active plant materials will not have the desired effect and will help the parasite develop resistance to it, and too large can lead to an overdose.
