In biology, parasites are organisms whose vital activity occurs at the expense of the resources of other forms of life, as a rule, more organized. In the everyday sense, this term is generally used in relation to protozoa and helminths that live in the human body.
At first glance, parasitic invasions in the modern world are a rare and marginal phenomenon. It seems that with the development of medicine, the improvement of hygiene practices and urbanization, they are a thing of the past. This view is somewhat erroneous: Internet stories about "parasite clusters" really have little to do with reality, but even today there is still a very high risk of becoming a carrier of unwanted fauna. Pet owners, exotic foods and travel enthusiasts, children and those who neglect standard hygiene procedures are especially susceptible to infection. The most common signs of parasitic infestation include:
- skin rashes of unknown origin, dermatitis, acne;
- dyspeptic disorders, heartburn, nausea, sudden weight gain, digestive problems;
- headaches and dizziness;
- fragility of nails, deterioration of hair, premature aging of the skin;
- deterioration of immunity and resistance to disease, regular herpetic eruptions, colds;
- general health deterioration: dysthymic phenomena, nervousness, lethargy.
Most of the time, helminths and protozoa live in Organs digestive organs and the liver. Parasites can remain in the body for years almost imperceptibly or, on the contrary, create tangible problems one month after infection. In one way or another, parasites deplete the human body, destroy the beneficial internal flora, interfere with the absorption of nutrients from food, and destroy the body's systems. Its long stay in the human body threatens with extremely serious health problems, and parasitic infestations in children can lead to a marked delay in physical development and impaired nervous regulation.
Cleaning the body of parasites, most of the time, requires the help of professional doctors. If you suspect that they are present, you should see a doctor immediately and begin appropriate treatment. Many natural remedies have been shown to be effective against parasites. They can also accelerate recovery, provide additional support for drug therapy and prevent infections. The advantage of natural drugs compared to synthetic drugs is less toxicity, low cost and ease of use. However, it is worthwhile to use folk remedies with care: when making antiprazitic drugs at home, you must follow the instructions. A very small dose of active plant materials will not have the desired effect and will help parasites to develop resistance to it, and too large a dose can lead to an overdose.
