Human Intestinal Parasites
An article in The Nutrition and Dietary Consultant (May 1996) says it is estimated that 200 million people are infected by intestinal parasites. It also estimates that one in four people worldwide is infected by roundworms.
High infection rate in the USA is surprising to many, but most of these creatures have always been living within our bodies. When the immune system weakens, they can grow to numbers that cause physical harm.
People poison their bodies with chemicals, drugs, processed and over-cooked foods, and this starts the process that allows the parasites to take over our inner environment. When they take over, they are in control, whether you know it or not. When we make the wrong choices and do not take preventive measures, parasites win.
Human intestinal parasites are commonly found in air, food, and water and can cause constipation, stomach bloating, disease, anemia, asthma, diarrhea, digestive disorders, fatigue, low immune system, nervousness, and skin rash. Most people with infection will not face this reality or even want to think about this subject and will continue in their suffering.
There are hundreds of different types of parasites worms living in human bodies. Some are microscopic in size while others can be seen quite easily. These common organisms can be found everywhere in our environment, in the air we breath, in the water we drink, or in the food we eat.
A parasite is an organism that lives on or in other organisms, from which it obtains nutrients to live and causes harm in the process. Its name comes from the Greek word para that means beside, and sitos, which means food.
Most parasites require some host to complete their life cycle. Animals can also serve as the host. The parasite will vary in size from one-thousandth of one micron to whale tapeworms, which are one hundred feet long.
Parasites and worms can invade your bodies through food and water intake, through transmitting agents (like mosquitoes), through sexual conduct, or through the nose and skin. People with intestinal parasite infections are usually under-nourished and weak, infected with virus, fungus, or bacteria, and have various types of chemical and metal poisoning. Human intestinal parasites can be present in any disease, in any person, at any age.
Parasites are responsible for many health problems because they secrete toxins and steal the vital nutrients from our bodies. They can irritate or exaggerate other health problems a person may be experiencing. Everyone is at risk and under their mercy during parasitic infections.
We create the perfect living environment for parasites when the bowel becomes ineffective in the elimination of our waste products. The build-up of fecal material on the walls of the colon is attributed to constipation and also the amounts of junk food, chemicals, bad fats, and sweets we consume. We poison ourselves from our own toxic waste and the waste from these creatures (auto intoxication) when this ideal habitat is created. Testing for parasites is only available for about five percent of the known varieties with twenty percent accuracy.
People suffering with cancer are afflicted with worms that often lump together and look like tumors. Female worms can release 3,000 to 200,000 eggs per day depending on their type. Most doctors are not trained to recognize the symptoms of parasitic infections. The only way to avoid the problems associated with parasite infections is by educating yourself.
The CDC estimates that the number of parasites present in the United States alone is in the thousands. These parasites are biochemically complex creatures in their life histories, development, reproductive cycles, nutritional requirements, and disease manifestation. They are categorized according to their structure, shape, function, and reproductive ability. These include microscopic organisms (protozoa); roundworms, pinworms, and hookworms (nematoda); tapeworms (cestoda); and flukes (trematoda).
There are 3,200 varieties of parasites in the four major categories:Protozoa, Nematoda, Cestoda, and Trematoda
PROTOZOA: the single cell parasites; amoebae, protozoa infections, neospora, Toxoplasmosis, cryptosporidium, giardia, Sarcocystis and Trichomonas vaginalis
Making up approximately 70 percent of all parasites, protozoa are invisible to the naked eye. They are one-celled microscopic organisms, but don’t let their size fool you. Certain protozoan, through their intensely rapid reproductive ability, can take over the intestinal tract of their host; and from there go on to other organs and tissues. Some feed on red blood cells. Some protozoa produce cysts – closed sacs in which they may be safely transported through food and water from one person to another. In the cyst state, protozoa are safe from destruction by human digestive juices. These one-celled ‘vampires’ can actually destroy the tissues of their hosts. According to experts, an estimated 7 million people across the U.S. have some form of protozoa living inside of them.
Common protozoa include: Endolimax nana, Giardia lamblia, Entamoeba histolytica, Cryptosporidum parvum, Blastocystis hominis, Trichomonas vaginalis, Toxoplasma gondii, Cyclospora cayetanensis, Cryptosporidium muris, Pneumocystis carinii, Plasmodium malariae, Plasmodium ovale, Plasmodium vivax, Plasmodium falciparum, Leishmania donovani, Leishmania tropica, and Leishmania braziliensis
Amoebae are an irregular shaped microorganism that infects the end of the smaller intestine and colon. Amoebiasis is the most common infection and is caused by the species Entamoeba histolytica. Amoebae also release an enzyme that causes ulcers or abscesses where they enter the bloodstream. They can eventually reach other organs like the brain or liver. These microorganisms can grow to 25 micrometers in diameter.
Cryptosporidium is associated with water-borne outbreaks. The victim might experience diarrhea and abdominal pain lasting for about ten days.
Giardia is the most prevalent intestinal parasite in humans and found in drinking water. Giardia resides in the smaller intestine and at times in the gall bladder. Millions of these giardia organisms will coat the intestinal walls and prevent the absorption of nutrients and later cause illness. Symptoms are mild to moderate abdominal cramps, intestinal gas, light colored stools, bad absorption, weakness, chills, stomach bloating, and diarrhea. (14 um x 10 um)
Trichomonas vaginalis are pathogens that reside in the vagina in females and the urethra, epididymis, and the swelling in the prostate gland in males. In women there is some yellowish discharge accompanied by itching and burning.
Malaria, the most prevalent and debilitating disease among the protozoa type, is caused by Plasmodium. About two million people die annually from Malaria.
NEMATODE: common roundworms (Ascaris lumbricoides), hookworms, whipworms, pinworms, heart worms, Strongyloides, Stercoralis, Ancylostoma, caninum, toxocara worm, and trichinosis. Size can vary from 0.2 to 35 centimeters.
While the protozoa are only single-celled, nematode creatures are multi cellular. The adult worms multiply by producing eggs called ova or larvae. The eggs usually become infectious in soil or in an intermediate host before humans are infected. It is interesting to note that unless the worm infection is heavy, many individuals do not show signs of disease. While it may be unpleasant to consider, it is true that the human host can coexist quite comfortably with a few worms, unless they reproduce in great numbers and create organ obstruction. Experts claim that ‘some type of worm is already in the intestines of over 75 percent of the world’s population.’ This is a frightening statement.
Common nematode include: Roundworm (Ascaris lumbricoides), Hookworm (Necator Americanus, Ancylostoma duodenal), Pinworm (Enterobius vermicularis), Roundworm (Toxocara canis, Toxocara cati), Heart worm (Dirofilaria immitis), Strongyloides (Stronglyoides stercoralis), Trichinella (Trichinella spiralis), Filaria (Wuchereria bancrofti, Brugia malayi, Onchocerca volvulus, Loa loa, Mansonella streptocerca, Mansonella perstans, Mansonella ozzardi), and Anisakine larvae
Roundworms look similar to an earthworm and can produce 200,000 eggs daily. Approximately 1,008 million people are infected, making it the most common worldwide parasitic infection. The most frequent symptom from roundworms is upper abdominal discomfort. Other symptoms are asthma, eye pain, insomnia, and rashes due to the secretions or waste products from the worms. Large numbers can cause blockages in the intestinal tract, hemorrhage when penetrating the intestinal wall, appendicitis, peritonitis, abscesses in the liver, hemorrhagic pancreatitis, loss of appetite, and insufficient absorption of digested foods. Adults grow to 15 inches long.
Hookworm larvae penetrate the skin. When hookworms reach adulthood, they can sap the victim’s strength, vitality, and overall well-being. Young worms use their teeth to burrow through the intestinal wall and feed on your blood. Symptoms from hookworm infection are iron deficiency, abdominal pain, loss of appetite, craving to eat soil, protein deficiency, dry skin and hair, skin irritations, edema, distended abdomen, stunted growth, delayed puberty, mental dullness, cardiac failure and death. (1/2 inch long)
Pinworms can infect one in five children. Symptoms are itching and irritation of the anus or vagina, digestive disorders, insomnia, irritability or nervousness. Female pinworms crawl out of the anus and lay about 15,000 eggs per day. Once airborne, the eggs can survive about two days anywhere in your living environment. Worldwide, about 500 million people are infected with pinworms. This worm is white and can grow to about 1/2 inch in length.
Whipworm infections are estimated at several hundred million worldwide. Symptoms of whipworms are bloody stools, pain in the lower abdomen, weight loss, rectal pro-lapse, nausea, and anemia. Hemorrhage can occur when worms penetrate the intestinal wall and bacterial infections usually follow. Whipworms grow to 1-2 inches length.
CESTODA (Tapeworms): bladder worms, pork tapeworms, broad fish, dog tapeworms, dwarf and rat tapeworms.
Among the oldest known parasites, tapeworms are considered humanity’s largest intestinal inhabitant. They each have a scolex (head) that attaches to the intestinal wall. As long as the head remains attached to the intestinal mucosa, a new worm can grow from it. Tapeworms do not contain digestive tracts but get their nourishment by absorbing partially digested substances from the host. They are whitish in color, flat, and ribbon-like, with a covering that is a transparent skin-like layer.
Common cestoda include: Beef tapeworm (Taenia saginata), Pork tapeworm (Taenia solium), Fish tapeworm (Diphyllobothrium latum), and Dog tapeworm (Dipylidium caninum). Broad fish tapeworms may grow to 35 feet long and can live ten years inside the person’s intestines. Some tapeworms can lay as many as one million eggs per day. Their bodies are in separate segments with hooks and suction cups on their skull.
TREMATODE (Flukes): Flatworms; bladder, blood, liver, lung, kidney, and intestinal flukes.
Trematodes are leaf-shaped flatworms also known as flukes. They are parasitic during nearly all of their life-cycle forms. The cycle begins when larvae are released into freshwater by infected snails. The free-swimming larvae can then directly penetrate the skin of the human host or are ingested after encysting in or on various edible vegetation, fish, or crustaceans.
Common trematodes include: Intestinal fluke (Fasciolopsis buski), Blood fluke (Schistosoma japonicum, Schistosoma mansoni), Schistosoma haematobium), Liver fluke (Clonorchis sinensis), Oriental lung fluke (Paragonimus westermani), and Sheep liver fluke (Fasciola hepatica)
Human infections of flukes (Schistosomes) are in excess of 250 million worldwide. They can cause severe diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, bladder, and liver and destroy blood cells. Size varies from 1 to 2.5 centimeters in length (1/2 to 3 inches long).
Spirochetes are very tiny organisms that are spiral-shaped and can multiply in the blood and lymphatic system. Types include Spirochetes (largest), Saprospira, Cristispira, Treponema (smallest), and many more. The host or carrier is usually lice, ticks, fleas, mites, and flying insects, which then transmit the infection to humans. Spirochetes are responsible for relapsing fever, infectious jaundice, Lymes disease, sores, ulcers, Vincent angina, and Wyles disease.
Some parasite worms have the ability to fool bodies into thinking they are a normal part of the tissue or organ and the immune system will not fight off these intruders. When these alien invaders are established in our bodies, they do several things:
– Worm infections can cause physical trauma by perforating (burrowing) the intestines, the circulatory system, the lungs, the liver, or the whole body.
– They can erode, damage, or block certain organs by lumping together in balls or tumors. They can be mistaken for cancer tumors, and travel into the brain, heart and lungs.
– They rob us of our vital vitamin and mineral nutrients, and our amino acids needed for digestion. Some people can become anemic (anemia) and will feel drowsy after meals.
– They give off certain metabolic waste products (toxic waste) that poison our bodies. This particular condition is called Verminous Intoxification. Most infected people have trouble disposing of the toxins that are re-absorbed through the intestines. The human body has to work twice as hard to remove these toxic waste products.
– Depress the immune system, which leads to further degeneration, fatigue, and illness.
– They can destroy cells faster than cells can be regenerated.
Some conditions that promote parasitic infections are excess mucus, an imbalance in the intestinal flora, chronic constipation, and toxic internal environment.
The nose is supposed to act as the natural airway for respiration and the main inlet for oxygen. It also acts as an air conditioner, by filtering, moistening, and warming the air that is breathed. The hairs and mucus membranes help prevent dust from entering the rest of the respiratory tract. The nose is responsible for smell and gives the human voice its own characteristic tone.
Problems associated with the nose are sinus (sinusitis, an inflammation), nasal polyps, and tumors. These can cause restrictions in the nasal passage and hinder the amount of oxygen needed.
Bones surrounding the nose contain honeycomb (air filled cavities between the outer and inner layers of the skull) known as the facial sinuses. These are comprised of two frontal, one sphenoid, two ethmoidal, and two maxillary sinuses. Each sinus drains mucus into the nasal passages through tiny ducts or channels.
Sinus inflammation or infections can be caused by an abscess in an upper tooth or from bacteria and viruses. Parasites or candida can also take up residence in all those little nooks and crannies and are the hardest to eliminate. After time, the sinuses can become encrusted in toxic matter like in the colon. Mycoplasmas infecting the sinus will cause drainage with bad nasal odors. Swabbing the inside of the nose with one drop of Oil of Oregano on an ear swab may help over time.
Polyp or tumors, which bulge out into the nasal passage may also be filled with parasites. It is important to clear the nasal passages so you can breathe in the Breath of Life, more oxygen. Self-examination of the nasal passages is possible with a small flash light held in the front of the nose and looking in the mirror. The airway should clear almost to the throat. If you can only see in about an inch, problems may exist.
Humans with worm infections may feel bloated, tired, toxic or hungry or have allergies, asthma, gas, digestive disorders, or unclear thinking. Damage and symptoms will vary on the type of parasite infection.
Parasite Signs (Adults and Children):
– Allergies, Many allergies are caused by worm infections. Tissue becomes inflamed and reactions to foods are the result when eosinophils (white blood cells) are increased due to them. Extreme skin rashes with blisters and food allergies or sensitivities may result.
– Anemia, Worms leach nutrients from bodies causing anemia. When they are present in large numbers, they can create enough blood loss to cause anemia or iron deficiency in some people.
– Constipation, some worms can obstruct certain organs like the colon causing constipation, liver and the bile duct.
– Diarrhea, Most of the time diarrhea is nature’s way of removing toxins.
– Fatigue, Symptoms include tiredness, flue-like symptoms, apathy, depression, and lack of concentration.
– Gas and stomach bloating, some parasites live in the upper intestine, which can cause both gas and stomach bloating.
– Immune Dysfunction, Parasites depress the immune system by decreasing immunoglobulin.
– Nervousness, the waste products from parasites irritate the nervous system, resulting in anxiety and restlessness.
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, sensitivities to light, twitching eyelid, gum, rectum, or nose bleeding are all signs children may have parasites.
If parasites are the problem, it is very important to take nutritional supplements as some worms suck your vitamins and minerals directly out of the blood. Others absorb your nutrients through their outer skin layer. These nutrients need replacing daily.
High carbohydrate diets, low in protein and high in alkaline, have been found to make parasitic infections worse. Sugar should also be avoided completely because parasites thrive on it and it is possible you could have candida. This candida or yeast infection will create an environment in the colon that equals the environment needed for parasites to thrive. Foods that lower pH from high alkaline conditions in the colon are apple cider vinegar and cranberry juice.
Having a healthy immune system is the best defense against parasites and disease!
How to Reduce the Risk of Parasitic Infections
– Wash all fruits and vegetables. Scrape off the wax substance on the outer surface of any fruit or vegetable with knife before washing. Anything with nicks or recess can harbor just about anything and should be cut out. Avoid eating grapes with open splits. Washing in ozonated water or food grade hydrogen peroxide (1 teaspoon per gallon of water) will kill parasites. Rinse well after to remove bleach residue.
– Whether you eat cooked or raw meat, I would spray meat or fish with a mixture of water and food grade hydrogen peroxide (one quart water to one tsp of hydrogen peroxide) before cooking. Keep all work surfaces clean.
– Drink pure water. Well water can contain various types of parasites and needs to be filtered. Parasites are associated with many water-borne outbreaks and are highly resistant to conventional methods of disinfecting.
– Practice good personal hygiene. Wash your hands before eating and after going to the bathroom, changing diapers, or handling pets. Keep your fingernails short and clean.
– Keep your living environment clean. The dust in your house can contain human skin, soil particles, or fecal material from dust mites and cockroaches. An easy test to determine if this is the problem is by looking across the room when the sunlight is shining through the window and checking for particles floating in the air. Then let the kids run around and recheck. The elimination of carpets reduces this problem considerably.
– Do not walk barefoot on warm, moist soil or while working in the garden. Parasites are abundant in soil and can absorb (penetrate) through skin cells. Fertilizers are added to garden soil and are the pets favorite place to go. Use gloves and shoes for protection.
– Be careful swimming in rivers, lakes, ponds, or public swimming pools. Avoid swallowing or drinking the water while swimming anywhere. Avoid swimming if cuts or open sores are present.
– If pets are infested with parasites, de-worm them and keep them outside. You are at a higher risk of contracting worms when pets are allowed indoors.
– Overuse of antibiotics. Reducing the numbers of friendly bacteria in the colon allows for the proliferation of parasites.
– Global travel. Ten years ago, you might have been at a higher risk for parasite infections when traveling to another country. Today, you may be at an even higher risk of infection by staying home.
– Use more cloves with every meal. Adding some cloves to foods will help kill the eggs from parasites in the intestinal tract. Cloves added to coffee or herbal teas add better taste.
The sizes of microbes can be approximated by using the following rule of thumb.
* VIRUSES are the smallest of all infectious agents, averaging about 100 nanometers (100 billionths of a meter) in length. They have so few genes and proteins of their own that in order to reproduce they need to commandeer the machinery of the cells they invade.
* BACTERIA vary widely in size and shape, but tend to be at least 10 times larger than viruses, or at least 1 micrometer (1 millionth of a meter) long. They are single-cell organisms that reproduce independently.
* SINGLE-CELL PARASITES tend to be at least 10 times larger than bacteria, or about .01 millimeter long.
* MULTI CELLULAR PARASITES are so large they can usually be seen with the naked eye. Tapeworms, for instance, can reach a length of 6 meters (20 feet).
Food and water are the most common sources of parasite transmission. Since most of us eat three times a day and drink water frequently throughout the day, our exposure to these sources is constant. Tap water has been found to be contaminated with parasitic organisms. Both plant and animal foods carry parasites, and cleaning and cooking methods often do not destroy them before ingestion. The CDC (Center for Disease Control) cites food as the catalyst behind 80 percent of the pathogenic outbreaks in the U.S. Most are linked to restaurants and delis where less than sanitary conditions exist — from food preparation and storage to the utensils and servers’ hands.
Animals, just like humans, can become infected with parasites. Internally, contaminated water and food spread parasitic problems to our pets. Externally, animals become infected by parasites on their bodies, especially on their fur, because of exposure to infected animal wastes. By forgetting to wash your hands, even one time after handling or cleaning up after your animal, you can transmit the parasite to you. Pets are a wonderful part of our lives. They provide comfort, companionship, protection, amusement, and unconditional love for their owners. Yet, pets, like humans, are often victims of serious infections that can unintentionally be passed on to their owners. In fact, there is a whole set of diseases classified as ‘zoonoses’ (animal-transmitted diseases) in parasitology textbooks. Animals are major carriers of parasites, and most physicians, let alone the general public, are unaware of this fact. Experts have projected that of the 110 million pet dogs and cats in this country, over one half may be infected with at least one or more different kinds of parasites. Considering these numbers, the potential for transmission of parasitic infection from animals to humans is extremely high.
