Can Parasitic Worms Be Blamed For Diet Plan Failure?
How can Parasitic Worms ruin your health?
If you're having difficulty losing weight and if you've tried almost everything when it comes to dieting but nothing seems to work for you. That's probably because of parasitic worms living in your intestines sabotaging your health and nutrition; at least according to some experts.
A recent study revealed that 85-95% of the world's population is somewhat infected with different kinds of Parasitic Worms which means more than half of the majority of people have worms inside them. How true is this study and what was it based on?
According to research, parasites which live inside the body can dramatically cause a destructive effect to its host and result to different diseases that can be pointed out to other factors. Because of this, most people infected with parasites even after undergoing thorough physical examinations have no idea that the disease they suffer from is caused by a worm. And that includes your body's inability to gain or lose weight. The rationale behind this belief is the fact that eggs of parasites can be hatched into different bodily organs, cavities and blood streams. And as it grows into a worm, it will nourish itself by taking what it can consume from its host, produce toxic waste products and interfere with metabolism and nutrition. Since the host will not be receiving enough nutrition, its body's immune defenses will lower thus becoming susceptible to different environmental and internal factors that result to different types of diseases. This conclusion was not drawn merely from observation but from a scientific fact that revealed how some people can suffer from diseases and once internally examined, Parasitic Worms were seen thriving inside their systems.
If parasites are present in any part of the host's system; its presence can be manifested through different signs and symptoms. These symptoms can mimic signs of different diseases which makes it difficult to diagnose. The usual symptoms of Parasitic Worms Infestation are:
- Itchy anus most especially at night (classic symptom of pinworms in children)
- Easy Fatigability
- Some Anemia
- Diarrhea and or Constipation
- Weight Loss or gain
- Feeling of hunger several times a day
- Listlessness and Irritability
And many more.
In addition, aside from the classic signs of worm infestation; if this condition is left untreated the symptoms can fade or worsen or result to different diseases. These diseases which are often seen in people with Parasitic Worms are:
- Difficulty losing weight and or gaining weight
- Digestive, metabolic, and nutrition problems
- Chronic Infections: Candida Albicans, Sinus and Ear Infections, Urinary Tract Infection, Yeast Infections, Viral Syndromes,
- Cysts and Fibroids
- Chronic Fatigue
- Floaters (Eyes)
- Prostate diseases and Sexual Dysfunction in Men
- Liver and Gall Bladder Problems
- All Types of Skin Problems
- Menstrual Cramps and Problems
- Pain: Back, Thigh, Shoulders, navel and abdominal
- And bedwetting
And the list goes on.
Some infestations can lead to anemia and even asthma. This usually happens when the parasite is a hookworm invading the intestines and the lungs.
We get infected by parasites by eating uncooked and unwashed food and by drinking unclean water. It can also invade the hosts system through the soil and even through unhygienic practices. Children are more vulnerable when it comes to parasitic worm infestation because of their hygiene and "hand-to-mouth" habit. Parasites can also transfer to humans through exposure to animals like pets at home which is why it is very important to de-worm pets (and humans) and have them vaccinated.
Moreover, because of today's practices de-worming is only concentrated on children and most of the time it is never again repeated throughout their lives. It is crucial for each person to cleanse their system to get rid of parasites thus prevent different diseases to occur as well. De-worming can be done every other 3 months for adults to ensure a clean system free of Parasitic Worms.
It is never too late to fight the war against Parasitic Worms; it is however a choice we have to make to ensure the safety of our families and to safeguard our health as well. And since they are everywhere, we can always prevent infestation by being keen enough when it comes to hygiene, cooking and choosing the what's best for our health.
