Parasites are still a serious threat. Therefore, you need to know the possible ways to deal with them, as well as the list of drugs that will help in this process.
The human body is a whole world that is attacked by the environment and the microorganisms that inhabit it. Not all of them are useful or neutral to a person. About 95% of people sooner or later encounter aggressive parasites (fungi, worms). These organisms can cause significant damage when they get inside a person, so it is extremely important to get rid of them as soon as possible. Helminths live and reproduce using a person's internal resources and sometimes only a few signs can indicate their presence in the body. But the worst thing is that they can cause the death of their carrier. Not surprisingly, the question of how to get rid of parasites in the body does not lose its relevance.
Specifics of drug therapy
It is possible to get rid of parasites with drugs or through folk methods. However, traditional medicine strongly recommends the use of the latter only as a means of preventing the appearance of pests or in connection with drug therapy. Otherwise, you may experience a worsening of the disease or its serious complications.
Medicines are still a much more productive means of fighting parasites, but they are quite toxic, so they can only be taken as directed by a doctor.
Even treatment with parasite drugs is not an easy task and it is unlikely to save a person from such an unpleasant neighborhood very quickly. In fact, all anthelmintic pills are characterized by a complex action, the mechanisms of which are not fully understood.
In addition, in recent years the problem of parasite resistance to them has become quite serious. And since people in third world countries deal mainly with such problems, the percentage of medical innovation in this area, alas, is small. However, innovative drugs can be considered the most effective.
It is important to keep in mind that you should not use antiparasitic drugs for viral and somatic diseases, as well as for intestinal infections. Such treatment is also prohibited during pregnancy and lactation. The pests that have occupied the human body are divided into 3 subgroups:
Based on which group the pest belongs to, drug therapy is prescribed. Partly because of this, it's so hard to get rid of them on your own without hurting yourself even more.
Preparing the body for therapy
An important period in the treatment is the previous examination. Passing various tests is the basis for choosing an effective method of drug therapy. However, it will be important to coordinate the patient's nutrition in the right direction. Before performing the procedure for cleaning from parasites, it is better to switch to a healthy and balanced diet.
A vegetarian diet is considered ideal. However, in addition to animal products, it is better to forget about heavy, fatty foods, sugar and refined foods. It is recommended to adhere to a light and gentle unloading diet for two weeks. The body will thank you very much if the diet is enriched with fruits, raw vegetables and freshly squeezed juices.
You should also pay special attention to your own drinking regime. It is important to consume only purified water. The average amount of water you drink should be at least 2 liters per day.
It is recommended to forget about soda, thus pre-cleansing the intestines, kidneys, liver. If a person infected with helminths, in addition, suffers from constipation, then it is better to start practicing enemas, for better further outcome of therapy. In these cases, herbal decoctions of tansy, wormwood and other herbs are usually used.
Choice of anthelmintic
Anthelmintic drugs with a certain degree of conventionality can be divided into 3 types:
- synthesized chemicals;
- plant-based substances;
- homeopathic preparations.
Naturally, each of the groups will have both positive and negative sides. However, they all have one thing in common. All of them are aimed at creating conditions for parasites that are absolutely unsuitable for their life and reproduction. However, the course of therapy is usually long and can last up to 1-2 months or last a whole year.
The chemicals guarantee high efficiency and show the effect after 1-2 months. Nevertheless, such drugs are endowed with a high level of toxicity, which poisons both parasites and the body. In addition, as a rule, the action of such a drug is effective only for 1-2 species of helminths.
Herbal preparations are herbal extracts or their preparations. Such "medicines" accumulate in the body plant poisons that are not tolerated by pests and they are forced to leave the human body because they can not adapt to them. In addition, such components increase the body's natural defenses and are safe for it. However, the period of treatment with such drugs is quite long and can take up to a year.
Homeopathic remedies - such treatment is also long-term and includes a course of 3 months to one year. The effectiveness of such treatment is proportional to the qualification of the homeopath, his ability to choose the right medicine for the patient. Otherwise the effect of the treatment will be zero.
Helminth preparations, as already mentioned, are prescribed by a doctor only after conducting appropriate tests. In addition, the personal characteristics of a person should be taken into account when prescribing a medicine:
- his weight;
- the presence of allergies;
- intolerance to the components of the prescribed drug and other pathologies.
In addition, sensitive individual control of the course of treatment is performed.
Preparations for nematodes
This subgroup of parasites includes pinworms, roundworms, whipworms, Trichinella and Toxocara. However, the most common cases of infection are the first two categories of pests.
To counteract them, various drugs are effective, the specialist will choose the right one.
Extraintestinal pests in the body suggest a slightly different treatment. Ivermectin-based medications will help you get rid of them quickly. But it is very important to follow the instructions for the drug and conduct a second course of treatment. The fact is that these drugs act only on sexually mature individuals, but are not effective in combating their larvae and eggs.
In addition, after the drug is taken (preferably in the evening), it is recommended to make a cleansing enema and take a laxative. Such measures will significantly reduce the level of toxins in the body.
Means for the treatment of cestodes
Although a significant number of parasites are attributed to cestodes, infection with bovine tapeworm and tapeworm is most common. This is quite a difficult case, but it is still possible to get rid of such parasites by first carefully considering the therapy. Productive in the treatment of cestodes are special drugs prescribed by a specialist.
Preparations against trematodes and flukes
This huge group of parasites includes lung, Chinese, cat and liver flukes. This type of parasite is extremely dangerous in its effects on the human body and delayed therapy can cause serious consequences.
The range of drugs is quite wide, but you do not have to experiment. Consult a doctor if you suspect the presence of helminths or if you feel unjustifiably worse.
