Depending on the type of worm, a worm infestation can cause severe symptoms in humans. Therefore, this should always be accompanied by an adequate one Wormer or Anthelmintics be eliminated.
Consuming garlic in pressed or cooked form can also help drive the worms away.
A Wormer, also Anthelmintic called, is a drug that is used to treat infections with worms.
Most species of worms enter the human body through food or other oral or anal routes and reside predominantly, or at least initially, in the intestines. Therefore, this clinical picture is also called helminthiasis, a worm disease caused by intestinal worms.
However, other worms enter the body through the skin. They usually cause severe discomfort and can damage certain organs. Different drugs are used depending on the type of worm. However, all chemical-pharmaceutical anthelmintics aim to kill the worm.
The medical Wormer are taken orally. It can be helpful to completely empty the bowel beforehand with the help of an enema or something similar.
Due to the cycles of the worms and their eggs, the treatment must be repeated at least once after a few weeks. The chemical worming agents try to penetrate the worm's organism and block certain processes here. Wormers from the benzimidazole group paralyze the supporting proteins in the worm's cells so that the cells can no longer absorb any sugar that is essential for the worm.
Wormers based on the active ingredient pyrvinium embonate also prevent sugar utilization and let the worm starve to death. Instead, the active ingredient niclosamide leads to an accumulation of the intermediate products of sugar utilization, which lead to poisoning of the worm.
Another starting point is the disruption of the transmission of excitation in the worm. Here, worming agents with the active ingredient pyrantel block the transmission of stimuli between nerves and muscles. The active ingredient praziquantel ensures that the worm's muscle cells are overexcited. Both remedies result in paralysis and the resulting death of the worm.
Herbal or homeopathic anti-worm remedies, on the other hand, try to change the environment in which the worm lives so that the worm feels uncomfortable and leaves the body. This is also intended to strengthen the body's immune system so that it can fight off the worm infestation on its own.
There are different Wormer which can be used against worm infestation. The chemical-pharmaceutical try, as described, to intervene in the worm's organism and thereby cause it to die.
For this purpose, drugs are available as juice or tablets with the active ingredients benzimidazole, niclosamide, pyrantel and praziquantel. A few tropical worm species have to be fought with the help of foreign drugs, as there are no drugs for this on the German market. A homeopathic wormer is Spigelia anthelmia, Cina and Aspidium Panna. These remedies have worm-abating power and also act on certain organs.
Since a worm infestation often indicates over-acidification of the body, the acid-base balance should be balanced. A diet with raw vegetables and natural yoghurt helps here. Furthermore, consuming garlic in pressed or cooked form, sauerkraut, carrots, grapefruit seed oil and papaya can help drive the worms away.
Since the worms feed on carbohydrates, meat, white flour and sugar should be avoided for a certain period of time. Enema made from warm vinegar water with tea tree and grapefruit seed oil can be used to rinse the intestines. To prevent the worms from migrating, the anus can be covered with a fatty cream or tea tree oil, which can also be mixed with garlic, on the outside in the evening.
In the case of worm infestation, it is particularly necessary to ensure good hygiene. Hand washing should be done several times a day, not just after using the toilet and before eating. Change towels, underwear and bedding especially often and cook while washing. The temporary use of paper towels can also be useful so that the wormer is not taken in vain.
A chemical-pharmaceutical Wormer has various side effects. In most cases, nausea, stomach pain, or diarrhea can be expected. Since the chemical wormers damage the intestinal flora, it should be rebuilt afterwards.
