Although having parasites is unpleasant, parasites are more common than you might think. In fact, we’re seeing many of these at Westchester Health. Not limited to underdeveloped countries, parasites are present around the world and can infect anyone of any race, gender or socioeconomic level. They can cause a variety of symptoms, some of which affect the digestive system, but the good news is that they can be treated.

What is a parasite?

A parasite is any organism that lives and feeds on another organism. Examples of parasites include:

round worm
Parasites come in so many different shapes and sizes that they can cause a variety of problems. Some people eat their food (from inside their body), so they starve after every meal and are unable to gain weight. Others feed on red blood cells and cause anemia. Some lay eggs that can cause itching, burning and even insomnia.

How are parasites contracted?
There are several ways in which parasites can be transmitted. These are the most common reasons:

contaminated food and water
undercooked meat
contaminated water
dirty or contaminated fruits and vegetables
lower leg
Once a person is infected with the parasite, it is very easy to spread it. If you have parasites and don’t wash your hands after going to the bathroom, you can easily ingest the microscopic eggs on a bathroom door knob, salt shaker, cell phone, or anything else you touch. Traveling abroad is another way to introduce foreign parasites into your body. It is also very easy to become infected with parasites by interacting with animals.

how to check for parasites
The best way to detect parasites is to do a stool test. Most doctors perform a stool test when parasites are suspected.

treatment options
medical treatment. The doctor will choose the most effective medicine for your parasite. You may only need one dose, or you may need to take the medicine for several weeks. Make sure you take the medicine exactly as directed, otherwise it won’t help.
Complementary and alternative therapies. Conventional treatments kill parasites faster and with fewer side effects than other treatments. However, alternative treatments may be helpful in combination with conventional medicines. However, before starting treatment, your doctor should find out what type of organism is causing your problem.
Dietary recommendations to prevent parasite overgrowth:
Avoid refined foods, fruits, juices, dairy products and all forms of sugar except honey.
Raw garlic, pumpkin seeds, pomegranates, beets and carrots are used to kill parasites.
Drink plenty of water to cleanse your body.
Eat fiber to get rid of insects.
Probiotics (Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus plantarum, Saccharomyces boulardii, and bifidobacteria) may help maintain a healthy digestive tract, but may not be suitable for some immunocompromised patients.
Digestive enzymes help restore the intestinal tract to a condition inaccessible to parasites.
Vitamin C supports the immune system. If diarrhea occurs, reduce the dose.
Zinc supports the immune system but it interacts with some medications, especially some antibiotics, and is not suitable for people with HIV/AIDS.
Herbs are an effective means of strengthening the body’s systems. Like any treatment, you should visit your doctor to diagnose your problem before starting treatment. You can get the herb as a dried extract (capsule, powder, or tea), glycerin (glycerin extract), or tincture (alcohol extract).
