Okay- if these things can kill a horse where does that put you?
-Websites full of Information listed below-
If worms are so common in humans why aren't the doctors and newspapers saying anything?
Okay, this is my personal opinion.
Stay with me here. Okay. You go in to see the glamorous psychologist or doctor and you tell him (or her) you feel like someone dumped sand in your gas tank: First, how much money is he making by prescribing you a worm pill? Second, even if he told you- would you believe him?
Today's society is geared toward spending outrageous sums on what might be unnecessary medicines and diet fads. Are you sucked in, too? Who wants a case of hook worm? A sinus infection sounds better than bot worm. Of course, if you're healthy, you won't be in the doc's office where he can charge you for prescriptions!
"There must not be very many types of parasites as I learned
nothing in school about them."
Okay, this is my personal opinion.
Stay with me here. How many kids would be puking in the trash can or running out of the classroom with nightmare stories to tell parents who then get pissed off and sue the teachers for showing their kids parasitic invaders? What would you call the class anyways- Worm Ed? Why would school teach kids something that could make them healthy and live longer? That's the parents job. Oh, that's right, no one has had this discussion since great granddad had the last case of known hook worm in the family because he was raising his own hogs- barefoot.
For the squeamish- ignore the fact that the below list is just a few of the thousand parasites that can get bad and ugly with the human body.
This list is quoted from Parasite Cleanse.com.
Tape worms: Taenias - fish tapeworm, beef tapeworm, and pork tapeworm. Obtained from eating raw or undercooked, infected meat. Adult worms can reach a length of more than 15 feet. Pork tapeworms can enter the brain and cause seizures. Fish tapeworms can produce over one million eggs per day. It can grow up to 33 feet. This worm is normally half an inch long, and is usually white/grey in color.
White worms: They come in all sizes, from tiny pinworms to those that look like spaghetti or angel hair pasta.
Red worms: These look just like earthworms. They exude from the colon wrapped in balls. They can reach up to 6 inches long.
Inch worms: These are thick (pencil size), black and bumpy, and about 2 inches long.
Black worms: These are 10 - 12 inches in length and leave the colon wrapped in 'yellow acid water'. They nest deep in the impacted colon wall.
Pin worms: Tiny invaders that wiggle out of the anus cavity. The have the appearance of white rice and are about 3/4 inch long and are thicker than white worms.
Hook worms: Curved invaders about six inches long, and grayish. Infestation is as high as 50% worldwide. Hookworms grip the intestinal wall and suck blood.
Thread worms: Cream-colored invaders as thin as a thread. They often come out by the hundreds.
Stickpin worms: One inch long and a head like a pea, perfectly round, small ones are white, adults are black.
'Little fish': Fish-type invaders with heads and tails that swim out of the colon in schools. They average about 1/2 inch long.
'Fuzz balls': Round invaders with the appearance of fur on them. About 1/4 - 3/4 inch diameter, yellow in color.
'Spiders': Has an appearance similar to that of a spider and are colored brown; often 1 inch long.
From a blog comes this:
Some old timers may
remember checking their children with a flashlight several hours after the
child has fallen asleep. Shining the light on the anus to check for small
white threadlike things that have come out for a bit of fresh air and a
chance to visit a bed pal. Others might remember the "tape" method" of
placing some clear tape on the anus so they get caught.
Okay, enough with the squiggleys. How do I know if I got a parasite?
Medical tests are available which will only detect some 50 out of 1000 different varieties of parasites, but even the effectiveness of these tests detect only about 20% of those truly infected, because parasites can take so many different physical forms within their development. (Quote from Naturally Pure)
Okay, this is my personal opinion. Unless you live in a bubble you got one of these dag-nabbed things!
What are the symptoms of Parasites?
Okay, again, with personal opinion, these symptoms are seen in animals does it take a rocket scientist to figure this stuff out???

What can I do to get rid of the pests! Fast please!
First, don't freak out. These things have been around for a long time.
Get educated by checking out websites (beware not to fall for the guy out to make a buck off your fears), consulting a doctor if you think he knows anything, a herbalist is a good source and your local natural food store. Then take an educated guess on how you might want to treat yourself. Read up on a bunch of different products, and remember, there's always someone out there who wants to make a buck. You always want to know what is in a product and how often to take it.
If this subject drives you crazy head for the garlic and onion patch and shove in a plug of tobacco then wash with lots of coffee and Tabasco sauce. If the worms aren't "heading for the hills" after that barrage your significant other will be.
*Please note, the last comment was a joke.
The Holy Bible advices:
`"And they shall eat the flesh in that night, roast with fire, and unleavened bread; and with bitter herbs they shall eat it"
Note the bitter herbs are being eaten with the flesh. Animal flesh tends to be contaminated with bacteria, worms, their eggs and viruses. Apparently God is a good doctor.
Here is a list of foods for deworming humans:
Remember: slowly kill a population of worms. The effect of mass killing is mass feeling like you got run over
by a massive Mack truck.
Set up a purposeful regular diet of some of these items.
Plantain-what a plant!
Black Walnut- delicious in salads!
Pumpkin Seeds- roasted with salt and butter- Yummy!
Grapefruit seed extract
Tbsp of Caster oil- Yah the old folks were right about this one!
Mint and Peppermint- soothing tea to watch the morning sunrise!
pau d' arco - (No clue but it sounds killer.)
Fast on a high fiber raw fruit diet- to starve the worms out!
From the Pharmacy
Menbendazole 100mg 2x for 3 days
Albendazole 400mg 1x at bedtime
Ivermectol 6mg 1x at bedtime
From Applied Ozone:
Foods that lower pH from high alkaline conditions in the colon are apple cider vinegar and cranberry juice.
Pumpkin seeds and onions mixed with soy milk is another remedy for worms. Herbal combinations for blood flukes are milkweed, pennyroyal and black walnut. Herbal combinations for liver flukes are cloves, goldenrod and goldenseal root. Bitter melon is effective against pinworms. Fasting on raw pineapples for three days helps with tapeworms.
Another remedy for prevention is mixing one or two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in one glass of water. Alternatively, you can take one tablespoon daily of 1 part apple cider vinegar, 2 parts apple juice, 1 part apple brandy.
Constipation problems can be helped with friendly bacteria, cascara sagrada bark, chamomile tea, or elder flowers. Licorice added to herbal teas has slight laxative action.
Liquid multi vitamin and mineral nutrients derived from plants will help clean and replace your vital nutrients. The OXY-MEGA oxygen supplement is more effective against parasites and cleaning the intestinal tract than herbs. High doses of herbs may make them retreat to the colon but to kill and eliminate the parasites you need to flush them out by colon irrigation and ozone.
Some of these sights promote products. The information is valuable. I don't know about the products.
Parasite Cleanse.com a very informative sight.
If you have a weak or squeamish stomach stay out of the photo gallery!
If being grossed out doesn't bother you- go for it.
Naturally Pure.com- look under parasites in the list.
Allergy Escape.com informative especially about symptoms. Cheaper treatments including cloves, tincture
of walnut hulls, and wormwood capsules. Sound medical advice.
Check out at the library a book called The Cure for All Diseases by Hulda Regehr Clark. I'll let you know what I thought once I get my hands on a copy.
Applied Ozone is very informative as well. The site includes much more than this sample I clipped and pasted here!
Other Signs of Parasites in Children
Blisters appear on the inside of the lower lip, wiping of the nose, restlessness and grinding of the teeth at night, dark circles under the eyes, hyperactive, bed wetting, headaches, sensitive to light, twitching eyelid, gum, rectum, or nose bleeding are signs they may have parasites.
There are many natural foods, herbal cleansing products, and essential oils that one can take to rid themselves of worms. When taking herbal combinations, it is best taking them on an empty stomach. The best way to treat parasitic infection is to detoxify using good nutritional rebuilding programs that will restore balance and the immune system. Everyone infected with worms is deficient in the essential nutrients. All essential vitamin and mineral supplements are necessary.
If parasites are the problem, it is very important to take larger doses of plant-derived nutrients due to deficiencies. Some worms suck your vitamins and minerals directly out of the blood. Others absorb your nutrients through their outer skin layer. The nutrients need replacing daily.
High carbohydrate diet, low in protein, and high in alkaline has been found to make parasitic infections worse. Sugar should also be avoided because parasites thrive on it and it is possible you could have candida. This candida or yeast infections create an environment in the colon that equals the environment needed for them to thrive. Foods that lower pH from high alkaline conditions in the colon are apple cider vinegar and cranberry juice.
One can save money and create your own herb formulas by buying herbs in bulk, capsules, and capsule machine for filling the capsules. Mix the herbs equally and purchase high quality only. The book, The Breath of Life contains most all the herbs with anti-parasitic properties and the herbal combinations for mixing.
There's a lot more info out there. Hope this helps you get a start toward feeling great!
Note Human Wormers and Animal Wormers are two different species. Don't try them as they can lower your immune system and set you up for a whole lot of problems. Get medicines from the doctor only. Get good food from the grocer or grow it yourself and save money.
