Just the thought of a parasite taking up residence in your body can make even the most grown man’s skin crawl. What’s even worse is that parasitic infections are actually a lot more common than most people think. In fact, many parasites can not only survive but will thrive in the body without ever showing in signs. When signs are present, the person typically associates it with some type of sickness, medication side effect or other disease and never even considers the possibility of a parasitic infection. That is why you should be on the lookout for the following signs:
Chronic Digestive Problems
The first red flag that you may be carrying around a parasite inside your body is that you will experience chronic digestive problems. No matter what you do to correct the digestive issues, the parasite will undermined your efforts. This occurs because parasites often causes inflammation in the intestines that damage the lining of the gut. If, after changing your diet to one that is high in alkaline and filled with good bacteria, you are still suffering from digestive gas, pain fatigue and/or bloating, you may be under attack by parasite.
Behavioural changes, depression, weird sensations, anxiety, headaches, hallucinations, body aches and eye aches can all be a sign of a parasite infection. Too often, people treat these problems with anti-depressants but since the root cause is the parasite, the real reason for the mental distress goes untreated. It can also be misdiagnosed as schizophrenia. If the mental distress is also accompanied by digestive problems, you should seek the attention of a doctor as soon as possible.
There have been several autoimmune disorders related to a parasitic infection. These include reactive arthritis and joint- and gut-related, such as IBS (irritable bowel syndrome).
Keep in mind that no article or medical information over the internet is a suitable replacement for a personal medical examination conducted by a qualified and trusted physician. If you think you may have a parasite, you should contact your doctor as soon as possible. He or she will be able to use parasitology elisa kits to test for any unwanted intestinal guests that may be living inside you. Once properly diagnosed, you will get the right treatment to get rid of the parasites and start the healing process.
