The question of how to recognize parasites in the human body worries many, because they are organisms that lead a parasitic lifestyle, and their developmental cycle presupposes permanent or temporary existence in the human body. This can be done according to certain symptoms. Although different parasites manifest in different ways, there are some common symptoms that can lead a person to think that they do not have very pleasant roommates. Secondly, it is possible to determine the presence of parasites in the body using special diagnostics. Timely diagnosis allows you to prevent serious consequences and avoid diseases that occur as a result of the negative impact of worms.
Signs of parasites in the body
How to know if there are parasites in the body? You need to listen carefully to your body and the processes that take place in it. In the initial stages of parasitic invasions, the symptoms may not be bright enough, however, a person careful about their health will notice pathological phenomena and be careful:
- Allergic reactions. One of the signs of a parasite attack on the human body is an allergy. In response to the harmful effects of parasites, the human body begins to produce more eosinophils - protective cells. May cause allergic reactions. In turn, the parasites release immunoglobulin E into the blood of their host, which contributes to increased allergies. The strongest of the parasites is the worm allergen, causing reactions on the body (skin rash), in the digestive tract, in the lungs and in the conjunctiva.
- Gastrointestinal discomfort. Parasites, which are localized in the small intestine, cause an inflammatory process in it, as a result of which the normal functioning of the intestine is disturbed. Nutrients are absorbed upstairs, undigested fat enters the rectum, while a person has cramps, and diarrhea alternates with constipation. In addition, the patient feels pain in the epigastric area, in the left or right hypochondrium, nausea and heartburn. Appetite disappears, body weight decreases. In the case of disorders in the work of the biliary organs and the digestive tract, acne, pigmentation can appear on the skin, the skin becomes dry and flabby, and the complexion is dull.
- Some worms, due to their size or number, can block the bile ducts, causing the generalbile duct to become blocked, the outflow of bile worsens or stops in humans this is manifested in obstructive jaundice. Because toxic substances are mainly excreted through the skin, bile or liver problems affect the condition of the skin. Age spots appear, acne, the complexion turns yellow.
- Stool disordersmanifest as diarrhea and constipation. Constipation occurs when parasites block the lumen of the intestine. As for diarrhea, it is caused by prostaglandin-like substances, which cause a lack of chloride and sodium in the body.
- Due to prolonged diarrhea, the body loses water, leading todysbiosis.
- Parasites greatly deplete the immune system, immunoglobulin A is produced in smaller quantities and the body becomes vulnerable to viral and infectious diseases.
- Due to the fact that parasites migrate through the body, they can settle anywhere, including muscle and joint fluid. As a result of their intervention in the muscles and joints, inflammatory processes that cause pain occur. Therefore, a person hassore joints and muscle aches.
- Due to disorders of digestion and absorption of nutrients by worms, a person suffers from a lack of nutrition and a decrease in blood sugar levels, which results in weight loss. Pathogenic organisms absorb minerals and trace elements necessary for humans, and thusdevelops anemia and premature aging.
- Anxiety and nervous conditions cause toxic waste products of the parasite, affect the nervous system and cause various disorders on its part.Insomniain humans occurs due to the fact that at night the body tries to get rid of harmful organisms.
- In some cases, a large accumulation of helminthic infections cancause oncological processesin the host body, especially a high risk occurs when the parasites are localized in a particular organ - lungs, liver, pancreas, and so on.
A careful person will certainly notice the described symptoms. He must check for parasites on his own or visit a doctor so he can send him for a diagnosis.
The presence of parasites in the human body can be determined using several diagnostic procedures that not only detect the presence of parasites with great accuracy, but also determine their type, quantity, location and damage they have caused to human health.
Until recently, the presence of parasites was determined only on the basis of fecal analysis. Despite the fact that this is the simplest research method, its accuracy is not very high.The fact is that parasites do not lay eggs every day and it is impossible to predict exactly when this will happen. Therefore, for an accurate diagnosis, you need to donate feces 10 times a month. Not very convenient for working and studying people. But now there are more advanced diagnostic methods:
- X-rays, endoscopy and endobiopsydetect parasites in internal organs (lungs, bile, liver and so on).
- PCR (polymerase chain reaction). Using samples taken in the form of a sample of saliva, secretions or blood, the DNA of the parasite is determined. If a blood test shows the presence of parasites, then a PCR test can determine if the parasites are of one type or another.
- ELISA (enzyme immunoassay). Detects antigens and immunoglobulins. The accuracy of such a diagnosis is 90%, and the type of parasites, their number and overall dynamics are monitored.
- Bioresonance Diagnostics. The patient's body is affected by electromagnetic oscillations, while only the presence of pathogenic organisms can be checked, but it is impossible to determine their types.
Conclusion and Conclusions
If you suspect that you have parasites or just want to be tested for this result, you should consult a parasitologist or infectious disease specialist, who will tell you how to get tested and, if the results are positive, prescribe the correct treatment. Self-medication is very discouraging. First, antiparasitic drugs have a number of contraindications because they are very toxic. Therefore, they can only be taken with a doctor's prescription. Only a doctor can choose the right dose to destroy parasites and cause as little damage to the human body as possible.
Second, some parasites must be removed from the body under the supervision of a doctor. When the drug acts on the parasite, it dies, but before that it releases toxins into the blood of its host, which can cause anaphylactic shock in a person.
Third, the use of traditional parasite medicine is ineffective. They act only as a preventive measure, or in case the infection has just occurred and the larva has not yet become an adult, in all other cases it is pointless to treat with pumpkin seeds, green walnuts, wormwood and so on.
