Intestinal Parasites Natural Remedies

Combatting Intestinal Parasites Naturally: Ayurvedic Approaches


Parasitic infections are one of the most common conditions affecting the digestive tract. A parasite is an organism that lives on or inside the body of the host, such as human and animals.


Parasites depend on the host for food. The use of ayurvedic herbal remedies for parasites may help to eliminate the organisms causing these infections and help with the symptoms.


The common parasites affecting the humans include roundworms, pinworms, tapeworms, hookworms, and whipworms. These parasites have different shapes and sizes. Since these parasites depend on the host for food, the infection can cause malnourishment and weight loss even when the patient is eating well. Some parasites feed off of the red blood cells resulting in anemia.


How We Get Parasites


The parasites usually enter the body through the ingestion of the contaminated food and water. Unclean and contaminated vegetables and fruits harbor parasites, which enter our body when they are consumed by humans.


Consumption of undercooked meat, which provides a suitable environment for the parasites to survive, can also increase the risk of parasitic infections. Seeking tapeworm natural treatment is an effective way to manage this infection.


Some parasites enter the body through the bottom of the foot. However, the most common route for the entry of intestinal parasites is through the oral cavity. Once the parasites enter the body, they pass through the stomach and intestine where the lay eggs.


The parasites tend to adhere to the walls of the intestine resulting in bleeding and even pain or cramps in the abdomen. The parasites and the eggs often pass out of the body while passing stools. The use of effective herbs to get rid of parasites can help to relieve the symptoms and prevent future infections by rendering these organisms inactive.


Besides the digestive tract, the parasites can also affect the nervous system, joints, and immunity of the patients resulting in long-term, systemic problems. The risk of complications due to the intestinal parasitic infection is higher in the children, old people, and the immunocompromised patients.


Ayurvedic herbs can help to prevent these complications by offering a holistic treatment that is aimed at regulating the functions of all the organs in the body and improving the immunity of the patients.


Signs and Symptoms of Intestinal Parasite


The common signs and symptoms caused due to the intestinal parasites may include following:


  • Diarrhea

  • Foul smelling stools

  • Abdominal cramps and gas

  • Mucous in stools

  • Distended abdomen

  • Loss of appetite

  • Cough

  • Vomiting

  • Fever

  • Tiredness


Natural Remedies For Intestinal Parasites


Ayurveda offers natural remedies for intestinal parasites, which may help in eliminating the organisms by improving the response of the immune system. 


An improperly treated worm infestation can result in reduced appetite and stunted growth in the children, as the parasites prevent the food from being absorbed through the intestine. Hence, children with chronic intestinal worm infections suffer from malnourishment. The use of natural remedies for threadworms in humans can help to reduce these complications by producing a strong anti-parasitic action and improving the appetite of the patient.


Parasitic infections due to roundworm can also cause other complications such as bowel obstruction, intestinal bleeding, and loss of blood. Chronic infections due to parasites can affect the mental and physical development of the children.


The organic colon cleanse in the form of Panchakarma detox may be suggested as ayurvedic treatment pathway to support gut cleansing and eliminating these parasite from the digestive tract thus restoring good health.


Natural Anti Parasitic Herbs


The traditional ayurvedic use of natural anti parasitic herbs given below:


Bilva (Aegle marmelos): Bilva is an effective herbal medicine for worms. It produces an anti-parasitic action and may help to cure the infection completely.


Vacha (Acrous calamus): Vacha helps to treat parasitic infections by directly killing the external organisms. It also boosts the functions of the immune system.


Giloy (Tinospora cordifolia): Giloy is recommended as an effective tapeworm medicine for humans, in adults and children. This herb has anthelminthic properties. It helps to increase the resistance of the intestine against the parasites.


Vaividang (Embelia ribes): Vaividang is a common herb used for treating intestinal parasitic infections, especially those caused due to tapeworm, and ringworm. It relieves the symptoms of the infections and also promotes the expulsion of parasites from the body.


Mulethi (liquorice): Mulethi is potent parasites cleanse home remedy, which helps to get rid of the pathogens and also improves the functions of the immune system.


Daruharidra (Berberis aristata): Daruharidra is effective in treating the infections caused by parasites as well as bacteria and viruses. It promotes the elimination of parasites through stools and also acts as an anti-inflammatory agent thus preventing damage to the intestinal mucosa.

Mustak (Cyperus Rotundus): Mustak helps to treat parasitic infections by destroying the parasites and providing relief from the digestive symptoms.


Kutki (Picrorhiza kurroa): Kutki is commonly used in the treatment of disorders caused due to the imbalance in the Kapha and Pitta dosha. It restores the balances in the dosha and prevents the tendency to develop recurrent parasitic infections. 


Herbal Treatment For Worms


Ayurveda aims to offer a safe and effective herbal treatment for worms based on the concept of Tridosha. According to Ayurveda, the parasite growth is encouraged by the weak digestive fire. Parasitic infections are more likely to affect the Vata and Kapha predominant people as they tend to have a weak digestive fire.


The natural herbs help to treat these infections by strengthening the digestive fire.  The ayurvedic doctors may also advise an ayurvedic diet to stimulate the digestive fire and restore the general health of the patient.

  • I consulted Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for my teenage son to improve his height. He was 4.11 at 13. I was very worried as we are not tall parents and I thought to do something natural soon before its too late. I took a phone consultation with Dr Saini at Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic. Range of dietary, lifestyle changes were suggested and some Ayurvedic medicine was posted to me. I am very happy to say that with in six months, my son has shown a significant improvement in height. His family and friends have all acknowledged the improvement in height. I highly recommend Pure Herbal Ayurved Clinic for natural height improvements.

  • I was suffering from headaches for the past 5-6 years which lasted more than a day. Sometimes it was so severe that I had nausea and vomiting. Tried a lot of medications but they did not help. Then I thought of trying Ayurveda as my last remedy. 2 months with Gurnam Saini and I have no headaches. My sleep has also improved. I’m still continuing to improve my overall health as the medicine seems to work for me. I will definitely recommend this place to everyone who wants to improve their overall health and well being.

  • My four year old picked up a nasty viral cough every six-eight weeks lasting 2+ weeks each time. This has gone on FOR YEARS. Too many sleepless nights to count. She’s now on her third month of Ayurved treatment, and so far she hasn’t picked up so much as a runny nose. She’s still attending the same daycare, same level of exposure. Only now her immune system is strong enough to cope. We can’t thank you enough Dr. Gurnam.

  • Thank you Dr Saini for the remarkable improvement in my health since first seeing you only 3 months ago. With herbal supplements, herbal teas and a single panchakarma treatment I have already experienced the following benefits that western medicine had not been able to assist: * Lower blood pressure permitting a reduction in medication. * Reduced anxiety. * No dizziness or fainting following sudden exercise such as climbing stairs. * Eye floaters gone. * Persistent (2 year) cough almost gone. * Frequent reflux gone. With continued treatment and lifestyle changes I am looking forward to: * normal blood pressure without medication, * weight loss without strict diets, * cough gone!

  • I’ve had sinus problems my whole life, sneezing multiple times a day, always had a blocked nose and snoring quite bad. After my treatment with Dr Saini, my breathing is so much better, my nose is now unblocked and snoring has reduced dramatically. My sneezing has also reduced a lot. I recommend his treatments if you have similar issues

  • Meeting Dr, Saini has been a blessing here in Melbourne. I've always believed in holistic health and I was looking for a practitioner who could not only treat some deficiencies but bring my health up to speed. Dr, Saini is an esteemed Doctor with years of experience in holistic healing globally. I had been in poor health this year however through Pachkarma and Pure herbal Ayurveda Clinic's treatments, there has been a transformation in my overall health, energy and spirit. Highly recommended if you want to transform your health holistically and want to get out of the rut of medications.
