This is unfortunate that around 85% Americans have parasitic infestations in their bodies and most of them are totally unaware of the fact. As most of the doctors are not trained in identifying parasitic infestation at the forefront, the patients often have to face critical conditions.
Though to treat parasites and to make sure you are free from them, it is recommended to have parasite cleansing every 6 months. Also, other measures can be taken but for that, you need to know how parasites get into your system.
How do You get Parasites into Your System?
Parasites are really small and can travel through your whole body without letting you know. They mostly move around the body through the bloodstream and sustain their life on our bodily nutrients.
Parasites can affect our immune system on a large scale; however, we may get to know about it much later.
As parasites can make your body their hub anytime, even after parasite cleansing, so it is better to avoid the reasons for which you can get affected by parasite infestation.
Improperly Sanitized Food
Most of the parasites like roundworms enter our body through contaminated food as the manure that used in organic farming sometimes contain worms. So naturally, poorly cleaned food can infect you with parasites. Make sure you clean your food properly and also choose a hygienic restaurant each time.
It is the main source of parasite infestation. Hookworms and threadworms are largely found in contaminated drinking water. They are so tiny in size that you can barely see them with open eyes.
Also, these worms are very dangerous as they can live for several years and their eggs have the potentiality to incubate for up to ten years. Always drink filtered water to get rid of these worms.
Mosquito bites can also infect you with parasites as the heartworms though very rare in nature, enter in your bloodstream through mosquitoes; however, they are unlikely to spread through humans. So taking precautions from mosquito bites is recommended.
Pets are the source for various types of worms. We often stay in a constant contact with our pets and do not wash our hands properly after touching them, which is where we make the biggest mistake.
I know you love your pet, but he can cause you parasite infestation and for that, both you and your pet must go under parasite cleansing.
Improperly cooked food is the reason to get infected with tapeworms. Mostly uncooked beef, fish, and pork are the huge sources of these worms.
Tapeworms live in the lower intestinal tract and suck up all the nutrients from our body so it is recommended to cook your food properly.
Other reasons include walking barefoot outside, sexual intercourse, poor hygiene etc. Do not walk with bare feet as the hookworms and threadworms may enter through the soles of your feet.
