Intestinal Parasite Treatments for Humans

For human parasitic infections there are two methods used to eliminate these worms which are drugs and natural homeopathic remedies.  A natural intestinal parasite cleanse is by far the easiest on your body with less side effects and also more cost effective.  The drug route seems to work well however killing of the parasites with these chemical seems to be very hard on the body with plenty of side effects.  The most common drugs or medications to treat parasitic infections in humans are: Albendazole, Mebendazole, Diethlycarbamazine, Ivermectin and Praziquantel.  Drug treatments attempt to reduce the parasitic infection in your body to the point where you do not have any clinical symptoms.  So who do you ask recommends these treatments for parasites in humans? The answer is WHO; the World Health Organization.  Let us look at these anti-parasitic drugs more closely:

Mebendazole was tested on rats and shown to be teratogenic, which means it is able to effect the growth and development of an embryo or fetus.  This is one of the most common prescribed drugs for pregnant woman after their first trimester in Sri Lanka.

Albendazole apparently gets absorbed at a faster rate than Mebendazole and does have the same potential teratogenic properties.

Ivermectic not only is used for human parasite infections but also in chemotherapy and also has been shown to cause maternal deaths in mice.

Diethylcarbamazine can have side effects of itching and swelling in the face and eyes.  Common side effects are joint and muscle pains, headaches and fatigue.  Less common side effects are fever, painful and swollen lymph glands in the neck, groin and armpits, and rashes anywhere on the body, dizziness and nausea.

Praziquantel has side effects of stomach pain, nausea, tiredness, weakness, muscle and joint pains, loss of appetite, sweating, vomiting, dizziness, fever, diarrhea, and breathing problems.

Most of these side effects illustrate how hard some of these drugs are on the body, seemingly making people very sick and uncomfortable.  How does natural intestinal parasite cleanses compare to mainstream medicine treatments? How are they different and are there the same side effects to deal with.  The major differences between drugs and natural parasite cleanses are the side effects, the cost and the method.  The natural cleanse has little to no side effects compared with the drugs.  These homeopathic parasite cleanses also are much more affordable than going to see your Doctor and getting a prescription.  Alternative intestinal parasite treatments use the body’s natural processes and enhance them to create an unfriendly environment that the parasites do not want to stick around; drugs on the other hand kill the parasites and affect lots of other healthy cells in the area.  If you put a foreign substance in your body like a medication, your body does not welcome it, it does not recognize it so the reaction or result it causes is forced and when you force your body to do something there will always be consequences like unhealthy side effects.

Choosing a natural intestinal parasite treatment will allow the body to eliminate the bothersome worms without the worries of side effects.  The body would rather work with natural substances and natural remedies that is how the body has always worked from the beginning of time.  So many people rush to the medical Doctor for everything and get caught up in the prescription medication game for the rest of their lives.  True health and wellness starts with giving the body what it needs to enhance and support all of its natural processes, eliminating intestinal parasites is part of what the body does.
