10 Signs That You May Have A Parasite & How To Get Rid Of It!

The best way to describe parasites would be to term them as nasty little organisms that live inside humans. Parasites cannot produce food or energy and need a host body to survive.

The primary reason why parasites are very dangerous is they feed off human cells, tissues and toxic waste. Parasites also infect animals, plants and other life forms.

In countries such as the United States and other hygienically advanced places, parasites do not pose a very great threat, but they do exist. However in countries where the sanitary conditions are poor, parasites are the equivalent of life threatening diseases.

In the world’s poorest countries, parasitic infections are rampant, killing and disabling millions of people annually.

Statistics on parasitic infections are pretty staggering; according to the World Health Organization, approximately 3.5 billion people suffer some type of parasitic problem, and not all these people live in poorer countries.

Parasite Classifications

Parasites are generally classified into broad groups such as:

  • Protozoa: amebae; flagellates; ciliates; coccidia, microsporidia that are all intestinal parasites; sporozoa and others that attack blood tissue, cells, and other body sites
  • Nematodes: roundworms
  • Cestodes: tapeworms
  • Trematodes: flukes
  • Arthropods – all kinds of insects like scorpions, lice, tongue worms and on the list goes.

The technical names of the parasites are not that important to the layman; infection from any kind of parasite definitely is. There are several different ways by which parasitic infections are identified. Though there are hundreds of parasites, it is possible to generalise symptoms to a certain extent.

10 key signs of knowing whether a parasite is present in the body include:

Let us discuss in general the path of a parasite infection in the body before moving on to the distinct symptoms. When the parasite infection is acute, abdominal distress in varying degrees may be experienced by an individual. This distress includes diarrhea, fluid loss and burning sensations.

Visible evidence of an infection is seldom present at this stage of the problem. It is possible to go a step further and state that the parasites do not always appear in the specimens tested in laboratories. Guess they are pretty good at hiding themselves!


A parasitic infection will move from the acute to chronic stage. At this point apart from the diarrhea; constipation, intense burning, bloating of the abdomen, cramping and sudden urges to eliminate, become part of the symptoms.

There can be sudden food cravings, weight loss, irritable bowel syndrome, blood sugar fluctuations and mal-absorption of nutrients from foods consumed. The problem when untreated can continue to manifest itself through acute itching of the body; sleep disorders, skin sensitivity, anxiety and depression.

1. Immune Disorders

Parasites are like leeches, sucking the nutrients out of the body. This results in an immune system that is forced to operate on a lower supply of essential vitamins, minerals, nutrients and energy sources. The parasite is capable of stimulating the production of the body’s defense mechanism immunoglobulin A.

Overstimulation results in exhausting the supply leaving the body wide open to various bacterial, fungal, viral and other attacks.

2. Sleep Disorders

Parasites, especially the ones that prefer to nest in the intestinal tract, can cause a host of sleep disorders such as insomnia. Parasites affect the nervous system as well, giving rise to sleep disorders. All through the night, the body is hard at work eliminating toxins through the liver.

Parasites are known to upset this routine, changing the body’s rhythm. Some parasites cause a great deal of itching around the anal area, disrupting sleep and causing discomfort to the person.

3. Bruxism

Bruxism is the medical term given to teeth grinding; clenching teeth tightly together or grinding the back teeth over each other. At first glance, the connection between teeth grinding and parasites may not be clear.

Teeth grinding, clenching and gnashing of teeth happens at night when the person is asleep. This happens due to anxiety and restlessness caused by the parasites releasing waste and toxins into the body.

4. Skin Problems

Parasites that attack the intestinal tract cause inflammation and considerable skin irritation due to the release of hormones into the body. These in turn irritate the skin causing rashes, hives, eczema and other forms of allergies to attack the skin.

Another problem with an inflamed intestinal tract is that digestion of certain foods becomes difficult. Undigested foods produce increased eosiophils levels that inflame the tissues causing allergic reactions. Some parasites cause sores, swellings, lesions and ulcers to break out.

5. Irritable Bowel Syndrome

Irritable bowel syndrome or IBS is one of the more common signs of a parasitic presence in the body. Intestinal parasites dig in and fix themselves to the walls of the intestines. This leads to inflammation and irritation of this area that soon leads to cramping and spasms and intestinal blocks. Mal-absorption of nutrients from food follows, and some foods become hard to digest.

Worm Dr. is 100% natural and an incredibly powerful remedy I used to reverse my digestive problems and clear out worms. It comes with my highest recommendation and utilizes agrimony, chamomilla, licorice, marshmallow, cina and wormwood to maintain digestive and immune health.

6. Stomach Disorders

Parasites attack the human body in various ways including causing constipation. Worms are parasites and can actually block the passage of nutrients into the body, and waste from exiting the body at various points in the digestive system. Parasites can attack the bile duct and intestines causing the digestive system to malfunction.

When this happens, the normal bowel movements are hampered causing constipation. Another stomach problem caused by parasites is flatulence. Parasites enjoying residence in the upper small intestinal region cause inflammation of the area. This leads to a bloated feeling that is very discomforting; add to that the formation of gas. All of which is compounded by the consumption of certain foods that are hard to digest.

7. Diarrhea

Parasites generally attack the lining of the intestines, but also have the potential to attack all other parts of the body. All through a parasitic infection, a variety of abdominal problems prevail in distressing regularity.

Watery, loose stools that are painful to eliminate is one of the more common abdomen problems. The fluid loss if unattended, leads to severe dehydration. To top it all, several parasites produce a chemical called prostaglandin that leads to the loss of chloride and sodium from the body, causing in turn diarrhea.

8. Body Ache


As parasites are migratory rather than stationary, they sometimes tend to become enclosed in a cyst like manner in the muscles and even joint fluids. The result is irritation which is the lesser end of the problem; pains and an aching follows that is often mistaken for arthritis. Pain in the muscles and joints may also be caused by the immune system’s response to the parasites invading the body.

9. Chronic Fatigue

There is no doubt that parasites deplete the body of vital nutrients leading to exhaustion at mental, physical and emotional levels. When parasites invade the body causing the mal-absorption of vitamins, minerals, fats and carbohydrates, the body is left drained of energy. This inevitably leads to acute exhaustion, depression, concentration difficulties and general apathy.

10. Other Symptoms

Parasites can cause a number of other problems apart from the ones previously listed by which an infection may be determined.

Some of these include: food sensitivities; anemia – iron deficiency; excessive number of bacterial or viral infections; excessive weight gain or loss; restless anxiety; itching of the ears, nose and anus; forgetfulness; slow thought process; excessive eating but continue feeling hungry or alternatively loss of appetite; lethargy; drooling during sleep; problems with menstrual cycles for women and sexual dysfunction for men; numb hands. These are all possible symptoms of the problem.

How to Get Rid of It!

Medication is the obvious answer to getting rid of parasites, but it may not be as simple as all that. Why? Parasites are quite happy swimming along and feeding off their hosts. To completely rid the body of parasites can take years, but not necessarily so in case of every affected person.

Worm Dr. Is a powerful 100% natural herbal remedy I discovered and used to successfully and quickly relieve myself from parasites. I couldn’t believe how powerful this stuff is, and definitely suggest it to anybody suffering from digestive issues such as parasites.

Worm Dr.

Bodies that are weak, anemic, toxic and generally unhealthy may probably find it impossible to get of all the parasites completely. In such cases, treating the symptoms may be the only solution, but that is probably the doomsday prophet’s verdict.

Seeking treatment for getting rid of parasitic infections can be done through conventional testing and medication or through the use of alternative medical treatments. It is best to consult with a licensed medical practitioner and complete the testing necessary to determine the type of parasitic infection. Self-medication must never be sought under any circumstances.

The World Health Organization (WHO) has made recommendations for conventional medicines to treat worm infections. Health care providers generally choose the drugs best suited to the parasitic infection. Dosages may range from one to several depending on the severity of the infection.

There is also a list of common natural remedies consisting of herbs and supplements that can be taken in conjunction with a dietary plan to help cure intestinal parasites. Complementary and alternative medicine or CAM generally gets rid of infections faster with fewer side effects than conventional medicine.

Diagnosing and getting rid of the parasite is only the first step of the longer process. A healthy diet should be maintained to sustain the body’s nutritional balance and prevent further attacks from taking place.

Nutritional Balancing is considered a truly holistic and self-contained method of treating parasite infections within the body. When the body is brought up to a well-balanced nutritional level, getting rid of all those pesky parasites is possible. Practitioners of this method claim to heal the body through the balancing of various physiological aspects such as digestion, mineral rations and tissue minerals.

A diet rich in raw garlic, pumpkin seeds, carrots, beets, pineapple, papaya seeds and pomegranates can help to kill parasites. Honey and papaya seeds are good with plenty of water to flush the system. Consuming more fiber helps the body get rid of parasites especially worms.


Avoidance of coffee, sweetened juices, refined foods and alcohol is believed to help. Adding sweet potatoes and squash to the diet is believed to increase the intake of vitamin A, which increases resistance to the parasites. The addition of spices such as turmeric and cloves can help fight the parasite onslaught.

Herbal therapy is a safe way to treat parasites and to strengthen the system. Here again it is recommended to work with a health care provider. Some of the more commonly prescribed herbal treatments include: garlic; goldenseal; anise; barberry; oregon grape; black walnuts; wormwood; curled mint.

Homeopathic treatments are also an option for treating parasite infections. Homeopaths generally take into consideration various factors including the intellectual, physical and emotional structure of the person before prescribing any form of treatment. Homeopathic remedies for parasite infections may include: Cina; Indigo; Spigelia; Podophyllum; Cuprum oxidatum nigrum; Teucrium; Sabadilla; Stanum.

Parasites are a very real danger – they may be miniscule, but they have an appetite. To feed this appetite, they feed of you, robbing the body of essential nutrients. This results in diarrhea and a host of other stomach ailments that lead to poor absorption of the essential nutrients.

Most people figure diarrhea is no big deal and a couple of pills and some black tea will settle the problem. Guess again! As the body fails to absorb nutrients, the immune system becomes weak, leaving it open to numerous diseases. Diarrhea is not all we need to fear from parasites; they perforate the intestinal walls and allow toxins and waste matter to flow into the blood stream with very serious health consequences.

Here is another scary thought; parasites are migratory, so symptoms of the infection change depending on which part of the body the parasites are invading. All this is mentioned not to scare readers, but alert people to the dangers of dismissing parasites as nothing to worry about.

    • … Tests for every known “bad” parasite in the world! ~ US LABS: ~ Like Quest Diagnostics, Lab Corp, hospitals are only allowed to test 40 ~ 50 types… ~ 250,000 types exist, 50,000 of them are yeast types! ~ FYI: Only 1% of people are diagnosed in the US! ~ Ratio: 85% good vs 15% bad bacteria (US changed it to 80/20) ~Google: symptom parasite … SYMPTOMS COUNT! ~ Most all skin issues are bad parasites! ~ US doctors are not trained on parasites! Taught to treat symptoms “ONLY”! ~ PARASITE EXTENSIVE LIST:

      • I got all the symptoms ulcers on my arms and face been this way about two weeks or longer today I started passing round looking bugs through my stool this morning and they have been coming out of the sores on my arms stomach is starting to hurt like twisting cramps what do I need to do

      • My doctor had mine tested and I made sure it included obvious parasites including two undeniable flukes and the results came back said negative for parasites. Lost faith in conventional testing.

      • im waiting no I only feel them when my arms start burning that’s when I know there is a bug in it and I have to dig them out of the sore or they keep hurting

      • I had that!
        Took a good
        Parasite cleanse which had
        Wormwood, black walnut extract, cloves. And took Tumeric, and garlic supplements. I past tons of parasites from these mucus you like dark green or brown string worms to flukes in different stages from flesh colored to black. A lot of candida which is a yellow fluffy and long . And more. Took for four months and now every other month.
        The discomfort and wiggling sensation stopped sfter my first ten day course. But the lay eggs and reproduce some up to 20,000 eggs a day. Ofcourse you poop out some before they mature but point is you have to stay on a maintanance defense and you will see that they come in batches with different types or stages each time. I had tons of flukes. But you have to get a good deworming supplement that had at least three of those things in it.
        Another great way to fight them are to get food grade diatenacious earth and I put a tablespoon in half cup water stir and slug it down. Or mix
        it in with chocolate quick and milk, drink with a straw. And don’t count on getting a diagnosis from a stool sample with your doctor. They don’t get proactive. And if he does prescribed a Rx it isn’t cheap. Mine was $2000 for a 10 day dose. Much better off with the natural approach. About 80% of the population here in America have parasites but never detected by Doctor so instead you get Rx and then deal with side effects from that. Get rid of the wiggles and discomfort. I know a few things cause I’ve seen a few.
        If you are up to seeing pictures of parasite to know what you are lolling for, you can email me and ask for me to send you some… Warning though…pretty gross.

          • Have every flippin symptom listed.Have used several remedies to treat the lack of bowel movement for 2 solid weeks, including enemas. and nothhing . PLEASE HELP. I do however think water sourse is probable cause.

        • JJ,

          I have had these symptoms for over 6 years and now I finally know what it is . The parasites are now invading my muscles and joints and I am in severe pain. This will be the third fever I have had in two months. I really need to treat this condition and cannot get relief with an MD. Reading your comments helps me a lot. I was wondering if you know the name of the parasite cleanse you take. I have been on internet for days and hours and not certain which will really work. Yours did and I would like to try it. The Dr. Flora’s does not contain all the herbs that I read are helpful like wormwood, black walnut hulls, bromelain etc. Your reply is much appreciated.

        • Hi. I just read your post. I had a ‘light bulb feeing’ today. My husband pulled something from my butt that was clearly attached. It hurt. It looks like a flea but was clearly attached and appears to have a thread or hair attached to it. I have suffered for the last 6 – yes that is correct – 6 years from severe itching, oozing, never-healing sores on my skin I have seen 2 quacks, 3 hospital ER rooms and about 8 dermatologists. I’ve been prescribed every cream, ointment, pill. injection and phototherapy sessions – all of which have not cured me. I have always felt like it may be a parasite and was actually treated for that by a homeopathic doctor. Only relief is putting scalding hot water on the itching spots so they drain. I have lost friends and family due to this. How can I test? I am about to lose my job because I cannot concentrate. Years ago when it was first occurring, I was diagnosed as severely anemic – 5.7. I am about to give up. Any advice is appreciated. :)

    • I would recommend organic oregano oil…it’s very concentrated and potent and is excellent for parasites. One thing to note is that when you are trying to kill parasites, it’s important that you take bowel cleansers along with the oil of oregano because you need to flush/remove the dead parasites out of your body.

    • Hi I’m Nicole and I as well have been feeling the same way for two months and the doctor refuses to test for other dangerous parasites I now see imprints of them on my skin as well as my kids I’m scared too. I feel somebody know something and don’t wanna say because they f’ed up somewhere and now we got it but I see two different prints and they bite

      • Find a chiropractor that practices functional medicine….your body tells them through muscle testing whether or not you have parasites, more effective than stool tests by a regular physician. I have seen my chiropractor help many people with this issue over the last 12 years. From your comment, I think you and your family do have them :-(
        They treat you with herbs.
        GOOD LUCK!!!

        • Same here. My Chiropractor tested me for parasites. Wish I could remember what he gave me to get rid of them. They usually hatch around full moons. So watch closely.

    • How I got cured with herbal medicine. i am sharing my family testimony with joy and hopes that you will also use to get your own cures from the best herbal doctor…i was sick from the disease Ephysema, i had to stop my work and cut all contact from friends, for long i searched for possible help to get cured but couldn’t get any, Until i came across a blog testimony the herbal cures for Dr Sebi provide, i contacted him through his email: (drsebiherbalisthealinghome12@gmail .com) with my problem,he prepared herbal medicine and sent it to me, i used it with his instructions then i went for my weekly test,my tests result came out negative.
      Recently Dr Sebi also saved my sister,she was having warts infections all over her body,it was itchy and reddish, i quickly contacted dr sebi, he sent us some herbal to use and now everything is clear from her skin. Why struggle with any sickness and infections when all you can do is contact Dr Sebi, his email: (drsebiherbalisthealinghome12@gmail .com) he will help you with his genuine and certified herbs.
      Thank you dr sebi.

  • ive passed one long worm a month ago but havent since but having all the symptoms still like dirreah for awhile now i cant even poop could i still be infected nothing comes out in my poop i know the doc will just pass it off like most my other health concerns what should i do

    • I would definitely not assume that your Doctor will just “pass it off.”

      If you are truly concerned and it is affecting your health, I’d go get an opinion from your doctor. Especially since you’re still having symptoms.

      • My GPs passed it off for 16 Years. It has taken 16 years to be diagnosed . I saw an ‘alternative health ‘ practitioner and in just one live blood test, was shown nests and colonies of parasites (residing happily in my colon. )

    • I have been struggling with severe constipation; stomach issues for well over a year. It’s been absolutely horrific. NO ONE would listen to me. Not the hospital even after 3 visits in 5 months. Not my primary. I think spill thought I was exaggerating. It’s been very depressing to say the least. I finally broke & took things into my own hands Monday. I purchased a colonics treatment on Groupon & they got me in the very next day. Just a couple mins into the treatment, the dr was blown away. She said I was full of parasites. I just started crying. Finally, someone understands & confirms my problems. I have had 3 treatments and on a bunch of herbs & supplements. Insurance does not cover these treatments unfortunately. If you can, GET A COLONICS TREATMENT ASAP! You will mentally be relieved someone finally understands & wants to help! I will keep you updated!

      • This is promising! I live in AZ and have suffered w/skin problems for 6 years. NO ONE understands the itching and severe discomfort! I’ve lost friends and become distant from family because I don’t feel ‘right’. Please tell me how I can get this. Thank YOU!!!!!

  • WOW! I am shocked by reading this article and finding out the link between parasites and sleep disorder is actually true.

  • A very strong anti-parasitic that I have found to work wonders is oregano oil. This is not the same as eating plain oregano but instead is an extract from a different strain of oregano. If you choose to try this be careful to research which type to look for. The article that I read about it had stated that one drop in a glass of raw sewage could steralize it enough to be able to drink? It can taste pretty foul if taken as recommended under your tounge and I found that it is pretty good in tomato (V8) juice and also if you spice it up a bit. It had amazing results that worked pretty quickly and is a quite easy remedy that is not complex.

  • This is great…

    How soon do you think it will take if I started herbal treatment for a parastie I got on holiday last week?

    • I am wondering the same thing. Also, what if they have travelled to the other organs like the heart or lungs? Herbal remedies would still be as effective? And how long would it take?

    • Please know that oregano, while it does kill bad bacteria, viruses and fungus, also kills the good flora that you want in your intestinal tract. Use Oregano oil for ten days or less, and follow up with a really good probiotic to replace good bacteria. DoTERRA has a great treatment of a mix of essential oils in a capsule called OnGuard+. They also have a cleanse called GXAssist and a great probiotic called PBAssist.
      Also, be aware that these parasites thrive on sugar. If you can stop feeding them they die and let go of their grip on your intestinal walls. And pass out of you. I released an 18-inch string of parasite’s nests after about 10 weeks in which the only sugar I ate was half of a grapefruit daily before exercise and the dates I was using to sweeten my homemade salad dressings. Know that bread and pasta turn to sugar in your stomach.
      If you are in Utah, or plan to visit there, there is a great clinic that has a cleansing program that consists of shakes that line your colon and collect gunk that is stuck in there, herbs to kill parasites, and colonics to wash it all out. It is called VitaeHealth. They have a website at I have trusted them with my life and am much happier and healthier.

  • this is the most informative information a person can have I don’t believe any thing dr’s tell me and thinking I been having a parasite for a long time well it finally passed , could of had for years by the length why would a dr want to do any test now when I actually have a pic of the foreign object and the gi dr told me looks like a piece of celery and veggies that came out looking like a extra large earth worm what a dum answer and I will not go bac to that lieing quack I am not that dum so off to the infectious disease dept for verification purposes and yes worms are a big problem in this country I never left this country and all the disesaes are being brought in from all the foreigners and foreign products imported from other countries now I will be on a strict worm and candida diet they go hand in hand it explains why my teeth have rotted , im over weight can hardly see and the list is endless in summary all my nutrition is being robbed by the worms we are being deceived by our own health care system I am only 52 and love all the right good foods was never over weight I don’t even eat that much when I asked my last dr what else could make me put on weight she didn’t even answer me definitely hiding something naturopathic dr.s for me n my family eat the right foods hope I help anybody in anyway we are n charge of our health do not listen to the dr ask questions esp about the candida, the bad bacteria in your gut , the cause of all ones illnesses when it gets out of control perforiates the stomach and gets into your system causing life long misery

    • I can’t believe some of the stupid answers Drs choose to tell us instead of just saying I DONT KNOW LETS FIND OUT! GAAAH As if you or anyone is going to what swallow a whole big long piece of celery! NOT CHEW IT UP ! OMG! I mean we have all seen the wonders of corn and peanuts I’ll give them that one but celery!!!! come on! WOW! You have to find a Dr who is open to and practices alternative medicine but not JUST alternative, you want both in one. I hope you are on the road to better health and I would keep on with taking the things you need to to rid yourself of parasites. I really doubt that one worm lived on its own in there.


  • THANK YOU! We hear “Nothing is wrong… It’s all in your head”
    I am adding your site to my blog…. I need to lift a few bits of info for my post to get people to here as well….

    US LABS:
    ~ Like Quest Diagnostics, Lab Corp, hospitals are only allowed to test 40 ~ 50 types…
    ~ 250,000 types exist, 50,000 of them are yeast types!
    ~ It only takes a stool &/or urine sample at first to ID them in you…
    ~ Not all the tests doctors run that only turn up negative cause they can’t test for them all! Only 1% of people are diagnosed in the US!
    ~ 300 types of good parasites live on and in you daily…
    ~ Ratio: 85% good vs 15% bad bacteria (US changed it to 80/20)
    ~ Most all medical issues are caused by parasites… Google: symptom parasite … SYMPTOMS COUNT!
    ~ Most all skin issues are bad parasites!
    ~ US doctors are not trained on parasites! Taught to treat symptoms “ONLY”!
    ~ Get diagnosed and treated first… Go here, holistic, natural path, alternative, etc…. and seek a nutritionist that knows or has had them too!
    ~ Know your malpractice laws!
    Be in the know…
    Know your symptoms, options and treatments…
    Knowledge is POWER!

    • I have been filling sickly for over a month and have lost around 40lbs got blisters on my arms and face at first thought they were pimples until I squeezed one and a bug came out they hurt really bad when you have to dig them out so it will stop burning now im passing them through my stool I don’t know what to do will over counter worm or parasite medicine work to get rid of them

  • ok I had my period I few weeks ago and I had the stomach bug a week ago and my stomach just does not feel good at all its been growling a lot lately and I been having stomach pains
    Im think I has a parasite please help

  • Hi, okay lets say I have a parasite, and if I use medication, will I puke it out or will it just disappear inside of me or will I need the bathroom and it disappears like that or what? Please tell me it doesn’t just slither out of me or something. This subject really gets to me:/

    • You should really go to your doctor and ask. In some cases, using purging methods and wrong antibiotics or parasite medications can cause the parasites to seek refuge elsewhere. This can cause them to come out of your mouth, nose, or anus. If you get the correct medication from your doctor in the event that you do have a parasite, it will kill it off inside you and basically disappear.

    • It kills the parasite and the parasite stops hanging to ur intestine walls and comes out with ur poop

  • I have had problems with parasites since 2011 .I have gone to at least 30+ doctors,with the thought of “this is the one who is going to fiqure this out” but I am I’m now classified as a person delusion of parasites,by an infectious doctor. Who wold not look at my pictures and examined me without turning a bright light on.. I invested in a computerized microscope where I have many pictures and samples of worms.the latest problem all though an ongoing but more often than before diarrhia with horrible pains. I’m lost I don’t know where to go or what to do.

    • Try Worm Dr. as mentioned in this blog post, it works very well at safely and effectively removing parasites. And/or you can try VitaeHealth in Utah. They are experts at helping you get rid of parasites.

    • Hey Pat, Dr. Reynolds here. Could you forward me your scans? I think I can hook you up with this great medicine I’ve been researching with my department. It’s organic and will make you skinny. No more bugs . It’s based on the chemical structure of cocaine, but I swear to you the research shows it’s application for bugs.

  • what medications can be taken for parasites in the eye? I have told my eye Dr and he just says it is floaters. I see the suckers moving around sometimes so I think he is mistaken!

  • My five year old son has been waking up at 3am for three nights crying and complaining his stomach hurts and he asks me to press on it or massage it. I took him to the ER and they did blood tests and an X-ray. But they didn’t find anything iat that point I dint think about parasites so didn’t even mention it. Would a parasite show in an X-Ray? And am I making it worse by massaging or pressing on his tummy? He has not had any dierrah or vomitting nausiou and is eatting normale could he have a parasite??

    • why did you take him to the ER and not the family physician? The ER can only focus on emergencies and this did not sound like an emergency as it had been for 3 nights

  • My step son vomited one night before he could make it to the toilet…

    had not been sick when he went to bed….

    it looked like noodles…

    we did not have noodle that night.

    was worms.

    have an animal husbandry back ground and have always wondered why we can’t just walk in and buy dewormer for our selves like we can for chickens, pigs, horses, dogs….etc

    why is that

  • I hear a lot about diarrhea but what about constipation? Im not sure how a worm could make it through my rock turns that I have to drink 3 cups of smooth move tea to even get out. My fatigue is off the charts and has just gotten worse over the past 3 years. I got the flu and started having crazy heart beats off and on yet the Drs don’t seem concerned at all. Im wondering if I have a parasite. I have been constipated all my life though, I mean since I was a little kid and Im 40 now. I do however rescue animals and they sleep on the furniture. It seems from what all Ive read I do enough to catch a parasite for sure. I kiss my dog, cats, parrot even my chickens once in a while. Is there a place where you can just get yourself tested instead of going to the DR? I have quite the pile of bills after going to 4 different places about this flu/ heart/ fatigue thing.

  • Oh my gosh – I am shocked by what I have read. I’ve had depleting red blood cells for 1 1/2 years, diarrhea with lots of gas pain, loss of 15+ pounds and my doctors have done nothing to remedy – including a hematologist. I ended up in the ER last Thursday with severe stomach pain, uncontrollable bowel function and that doctor questioned the depletion of my red cells and felt I must have an unknown intestine parasite. After reading “10 signs…..” HE IS RIGHT!!! Now, I have some ammunition to get myself back into a healthy state.

  • Take Remeron for 10 days ( an antidepresant ) . It will make you sleep like a log and it does affect the parasites in the intestines too. You will see them pass in your feces .

  • I was never really concerned about having a parasite but this is good information to know regardless, you never know! Better to be safe than sorry, right? Excellent post, thanks for sharing!

  • Does anyone have numbness on the tip of the nose, toes and finger tips? How about a feeling of being cold at times or cracking in toes and fingers with arthritic characteristics? about 6 months ago i got an ulcer on my back. It turned into a crater that was in between 1 1/2″-2″ in diameter and 1/2″-1″ inch deep. i wish i had not accidentally erased the picture but it was necrotic with a very foul odor if you got up close to it, or on a hot day when sweating a lot. The 2″ crater is still inflamed and not diagnosed. I’ve been to numerous doctors and they pass it off and ignore all my other symptoms. my fingers and hands are turning black- a sign of necrosis. There’s also constant pain in the right lower side ab area. the necrotic tissue was never scraped so i think, whatever it was is stil eating away at me from the inside.

    • John,

      Could it have been a spider or other type of bug bite?

      How long has this been going on? Perhaps you should go to the emergency room!


    • Hi John,
      I live in Ohio and there is a spider called a Brown Recluse(they are found in many states) that if bitten by one, creates a crater type sore just as you stated, that does exactly what you said, it destroys tissue inside and continues killing tissue in it’s path. I don’t want to scare you, but I knew a woman in my church that was bitten on the leg by a Brown Recluse and had to have her leg amputated. I hope you have already found someone to help you before receiving this reply. Praying for you!

    • Maybe a brown recluse bit you. They are very dangerous and untreated will sometimes lead to necrosis. And it will spread to a wider area, the necrotic skin. You should immediately get medical attention. Google brown recluse bites the pictures are horrifying. But maybe you will be able to compare them to that ulcer thing as you call it.

  • The list goes on about people who literaly have their lives ruined by internal and external parasites. Most of the time, physicians, even “specialists” are of no help and people continue to suufer and reach out for answers and solutions. One thing is for certain…Healthcare and the education system ARE A FAILURE IN THIS COUNTY.

  • Wow nice keep it up………..grt article, pls how can I prevent parasite from getting into me?

  • Hi, I have exactly all those problems that you described. I have had all kinds of tests done for years and the so called doctors can’t find anything wrong with me. I now understand that all we are to them is a number and what they see in us is jus dollar signs. We are just a wealthy business to them and to the pharmaceutical companies out there! By reading this it made me remember back when my 4 yr old cousin got really sick from her stomach, she was losing weight, had anemia, loss of appetite and just bad stomach cramps. They took her in to the hospital, they said it w as a bad infection and she had to have surgery, after the surgery the same problems continued so she had surgery again. Then after the second one nothing had changed so they transfered her to a different hospital, she was gonna have surgery for the third time! They had done cat scans, xrays, ultradounds, blood and urine samples and couldn’t come up with an answer. So finally her parents got fed up asked to take her home and they took her back to Mexico, they took her to the dr there, he gave her medicine for parasites and whala!!! She got better!!!

  • I am sick since three days, there is pain in my stomachs and also vomited. When I went to the toilets I saw a small worm in my feces. What should I do?

  • Are there any type of parasite that enter through the feet. I’m having a problem. It’s not constant but I have real bad pain in the surface of my left foot. It’s like what ever it is tunneling and every time it moves I feel a temporary pain.

    • It may be a Guinea Worm if you have been exposed to egg-contaminated water. When the eggs are swallowed, they are activated in the Gi tract, and then begin to grow and migrate downward toward the feet. Putting water or rinsing it usually soothes the burning/pain sensation. This is how the Guinea worm reproduces. As a host washes his/her feet in the river, this stimulates the worm to lay its eggs into the water to further potentiate its life cycle. Using water to draw it out and a stick to gently roll the worm out of the wound a little at a time, careful not to burst the enzymes which can be excruciating. This is only one type that causes what you are describing. There are numerous examples, but this one has not been discussed yet. Definitely keep an eye out for an ulcer to appear, and if it does, possibly a worm also when you rinse with water.

  • I am struggling with parasites now. Doctors are useless. So after tons of reading, I now use Youngevity tangy tangerine, Zeolite with humic acid, D.E. diatomaceous earth, nacsent Iodine, alpha lipoic acid, occasional oil of oregano (when this stuff hits the gut, the parasites run). Also started coffee enemas- no parasites seen yet. Good luck to all. My original symptoms were, chronic fatigue, boils on back and butt, extremely oily hair, graying hair (even pubic hair), constipation, left stomach grinding feeling, gas and bloating, frequent and long lasting sinus infections and flue symptoms, IBS- RUNNING to bathroom after eating out. Dr’s took xrays upon xrays, MRI, ultrasounds, prostate exam, not ONE idiot found anything wrong, except white blood cells extremely low

    • A friend of mine has been telling me all about the parasites…. I have some of the same symptoms as you…. how did you come to the conclusion of all this stuff you are taking….. and what are some good sites to learn more. I just started today, finding out info on my own

    • How did you find out about DE diatomaceous earth as it is used in pools to filter water…how do you know how much to take…to get rid of parasites or worms.

    • man, i cant believe that you have the EXACT same symptoms as me. to the tee, exactly. ive had low WBC, doctors and specialists couldnt figure anything out. still have left upper stomach pains. been using P&B shakes (psyllium husk and bentonite clay), which helps A Lot.

  • Oil of oregano definitely kills the worms in your gut, but what about if the parasites are in many parts of the body…

  • I’ve had issues with itch in the anusi I’ve had these issues for a few years now. Is blockage also common with this type of personates? I’ve also been having problems with my bladder, it feels as if I have blockage when using the restroom. The feeling Like the sensation of my prostate being touched or pulled. It’s very uncomfortable and the feeling that you feel when you pee (relief) I tend to always feel it. This sounds gross but their has been a time were I put my finger in my anus and I could feel something blocking, I push on it and started to pee. I also have mucus in my stool, sometimes it looks like little worms things as well and sometime blood. Last year I had went to the ER for cramps that were unbearable. They took X-rays and found a mass of something and wanted to keep me over night I freaked and ended up leaving never to find out what it was. I’m bloated And gained weight. That itching feeling of like something moving around in your anus. I’m constantly depressed, either constipated or diarrhoea, lazy and I never any energy, since this issues with my anus. I’m constantly have high Anxiety, paranoia fear of be around people and social group setting. Had MRIs done and ultrasounds we thought it could be a in large prostate, and even my kidneys but they all seem to be fine. Having problems with my bladder has been horrible it’s destroyed my life and I was wondering if parasite could have any effect on these issues? Like blocking my urine and not allowing me to completely empty it, which then I have a accident? Please any advice?

    • You should get checked for pin worms or parasites in general. Many of your symptoms are very similar to someone infected.

  • your article has really help me thanks you so much there soo many purge medications it so common in my country and is herbal

  • About 3 weeks ago, I started hearing weird noises coming from my stomach. And when I would be sitting for a long time, I would feel a burning sensation in my abdomen as I sat up. And if that wasn’t enough, It started experiencing itchy,burning sensations on random parts of my body (including my face, ears and nose). The itching would get really bad late at night. I could feel things crawling all over me…………..and then I remembered the report about the local drinking water-it was contaminated! I had totally forgot about that when I had washed the dishes around that time. So I went to the E.R the next morning, and the Dr. on call wasn’t very helpful. He just told me to go and buy some Hcort. cream and wait for it to clear up- It didn’t. I was back there again in 3 days time,and then he referred me to a dermatologist (out of area). I knew that there was something much worse going on. So a few days later, I saw my primary care provider. She was willing to listen to my theories as to what it might be? she ordered 4 toxocology tests, which I have now completed. I will meet back with her in 3 days to hear the results. I’m still trying to reduce the symptoms by eating healthier, although I don’t usually get much sleep (from the itchy buglike sensations). I just want it to stop

  • What’s up, yeah this post is truly good and I have learned lot of things from it
    regarding blogging. thanks.

  • I read the parasites blog. I am going on 9 months but I don’t have anyone that believes me. My testing comes back negative ?? We moved thinking we’d be done with those nasty, revolting, bothersome pest. I’ve lost everything. My job my home. Friends, been called delusional by my doc’s and I have been through hell on earth. I have every single symptom you listed. I can fell a couple mive in my hands and it hurts bad, my hand has been in pain so bad I cry out. I go in full panic mode when they are act. In my hair normally. All kinds.

    They embedded in my clothes, furniture and now are at our new house.

    My life isn’t great. My hair is falling out, my depression sometimes puts me in bed a full 7 days. I don’t go anywhere or around anyone especially when they are in my hair. My brother has them in his hair as well, dogs also. Not as bad. I get them every few days for 9 months. My look are ruined, my teeth and skin. Omg. They reside in my teeth quite a bit.

    Do you know of an parasite/insect/ microbe that takes over your home, pretty much terrorize us and I have over 1000 photos and videos noone is interested in believing me. The worms aren’t as bad, or not in stool since a dr gave me a med. Wow that was crazy.

    It’s been like being in a horror movie.

    Help!!! I just don’t know how much longer I can honestly on
    My father is mad , he and my other brother think I’m simply nuts. This is just the final straw. I pretty much have noone and it has truly hurt me. Thanks for listening

  • David I. Dealing with parasites I’m doing all I can to starve them to deal th but I’m having a time getting rid of theses feasting things …

  • So grateful and happy to share my testimony! The great man who cures all known diseases, Dr Sebi is a healer, pathologist, herbalist, biochemist and naturalist, who immigrated from Honduras and who has committed his life to the service of helping people cure their diseases. In 1988, he took on the Attorney General of New York in a Supreme Court trial where he was being sued for false advertisement and practice without a license after placing ads in a number of newspapers, including the New York Post where he had announced: “Aids has been cured by the Usha Research Institute, and we specialize in cures for Sickle Cell, Lupus, Blindness, Herpes, Cancer, Als and others. Pre-trial, the judge had asked Dr. Sebi provide one witness per disease he had claimed to cure however when 77 in person witnesses joined him in court, the judge had no choice but to proclaim the Doctor NOT GUILTY on all accounts, proving he did in fact have the cure to all the diseases mentioned in the newspapers. Several celebrities have sought out healing through the Doctor including: Michael Jackson, Magic Johnson, Eddie Murphy, John Travolta and the deceased Lisa Left Eye Lopes who proclaims in the video: “I know a man who has been curing AIDS since 1987”.. i want to inform the public how i was cured from ALS(MND) by Dr Sebi, i visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs which is very expensive to treat the symptoms and never cured me. I was browsing through the Internet searching for remedy on ALS and i saw comment of people talking about how Dr Sebi cured them from ALS, CANCER, HERPES, DIABETES and so on… when i contacted him he gave me hope and send a Herbal medicine to me through courier service that i took and it seriously worked for me, am a free person now without problem, my ALS result came out negative. I pray for you Dr Sebi. Am fully cured. you can also get your self cured my friends if you really need my doctor help, you can reach him now: (drsebiherbalisthealinghome12@gmail. com) You are indeed a HERO!

  • Can parasites cause hives? I get them in mornings then to return in evenings each day around same time, only thing I’ve done is colored my hair which I do get itchy from it but not hives b4.

  • Wow some of these posts are really old. I wonder if anyone is still here ..
    anyway guys, listen up. I’m no expert but I have been sick most of my life with a hundred different symptoms and have done so much reading and research its crazy. Parasites or not, we have to improve our diets. This is the most important thing , in my humble opinion, and also in my experience. If you have parasites, they have to be killed and eliminated asap. That’s the first and foremost step. No drug, no herb, no supplement will benefit you if you have parasites, on the contrary, they may benefit the little suckers ! My health practitioner told me they’d been feeding off magnesium pills I had taken for years! Yuck.
    Itchy anus : yep, that’s the female in (I don’t remember what type of parasite ) laying her eggs. She does that at night. Gross. Yuck. Ewwwwwwwwwww. In terms of diet the following can help:

    Regularly take organic Raw Apple cider vinegar (a tablespoon in a small amount of water 15 mins before meals. )
    stop all sugary foods.
    no chocolate (I know – almost impossible) I can’t say I haven’t cheated on my three month parasite cleanse – hello Lindt 60% dark chocolate best chocolate in the world – i love you, and when I get to heaven I know what I’ll be eating: )
    Take a good quality probiotic supplement.
    Take bone broth daily with meals to help fix the gut.
    drink LOTS of water (warm. Never cold. )
    drink herbal teas (such as peppermint, chamomile, ginger, lemon, mint, basil,parsely).
    Eat more vegetables especially greens, carrots, sweet potatoes.
    avoid fried foods, carbs, junky takeout food.
    use cloves, onions. Garlic, anise, fresh ginger as much as possible. (When you make bone broth you can add all these )
    I use cloves in many foods even add them to boiling water for rice, and some cumin.
    If you’re anaemic consider a liquid iron supplement.(Floradix is great)
    psyllium husk is an excellent colon cleanser. Safe and easy to purchase. No side effects.
    Avoid stress and pressure of any sort. Take it easy during a parasite cleanse and stay positive. It’s going to be one rough ride but do not give up !

  • hey. I have questions. what are the white things in my waste is that the worms? there a half inch long and there is 3 or 4 together. srry if I put that in your heads but can someone tell me what they are?

  • Oh my goodness! Impressive article dude! Many thanks,
    However I am having problems with your RSS. I don’t know the reason why I can’t join it.
    Is there anybody getting similar RSS problems?
    Anyone that knows the solution can you kindly respond?

  • 2 words that changed my life :
    Oraganic Olivia

    Check out her blog and she will change yours as well.

  • My daughter has had parasites for over a year. She started going to a regular MD. has taken everything that is medication prescribe that she was told would get rid of them, but did not.
    She gets colonics , done almost every homeopathic cure be succeeded and she is just getting
    sicker. She use to be the most healthy person I know. Who does she call now, she can hardly get out of bed. Please HELP!!!!!!! she is 33 years old always physically fit.

    • Go on Amazon and search for parasites and you’ll get many products. I just ordered IntestinePro. I hope to get it tomorrow! There’s many reviews and all are very positive! I’d definitely suggest everyone takes a look at this product even if you think you don’t have parasites.

  • I have had hives at night for 7 months. I figured out I had parasites. I also suffer from seasonal allergies and eczema. 7 months ago I started feeling really bad. A week ago I read online that food grade diatomaceous earth rids you from parasites. Parasite cause auto immune diseases, and suppresses your well being. Well I am so happy now that I found DE my hives are gone and I feel well again!! I take 1 teaspoon with water before bed.

  • Dr. Won’t tell you but one dose of Ivermectin will get rid of worms. This is what they take to Africa for decades to worm them so why would we be any different than them? Answer – we are all the same. We all get them the difference is we have insurance and they make money off all the illness the worms will cause. Follow the money!! ivermectin can be bought in any farm store or on line -Amazon. It’s cheap and safe 1.87 percent with no other mix of drug its for horses. We are farmers and have horses and cattle. We worm ourselves when we worm them. I can bet the Vet worms himself and family this way they just don’t talk about it.

  • guys i need your help. I got food poisoning in august while i was in the dominican republic horrible diarrhea and twisting pain. I got back to the states and took cipro for two weeks and diarrhea came back and now pain are all over stomach intense burning. I am also very fatigued, have gas, can’t sleep or really do anything it’s taken over my life. they did still tests but couldn’t find anything i don’t know what to do

  • Help, my son has been diagnosed with blastocystis hominis, dientameoba, and pin worm. He has been treated once by a GP a few years ago, but I was unable to be treated as I was pregnant. I reciently had the entire family’s stool sent in but it is painfully slow to get results. Anyways I have been getting terrible headaches, I think they are being caused by clenching my teeth at night, and dehydration. I can usually get rid of the headache by chugging lots of water. The problem is I drink a lot of water. If I drink less then 2 liters I get a raging headache in the night or following morning. Could this be caused by parasites too? Feeling like crap two to three days a week sucks!
    Oh and any help on parasite cleanses I can get my young kids to do would be super helpful!

  • Hi Sir,
    Sometimes I feel like someone is drinking blood from my bothe feets and that’s why I look very weak and malnutrition. This is happening for the last 12 years and there is no body growth in me from that time to now.
    Please help me in identifying which type of disease is this?

  • I tried everything possible on my own and I tried different doctors but they don’t take this as real problem and don’t know how to deal with it, but after so many years of struggle with this problem my health is in critical condition.
    Can somebody recommend a VERY good specialist who really can help with VERY advanced parasites problems in the whole body, not just in digestive system? I would really appreciate any help with diagnosis and curing me or any other ideas for my situation because I feel like my life is fading away and I am too weak to fight any longer. Any advice will be appreciated. Thank you.
