Health Remedies - Helminthiasis

Product Categories

Helminthiasis is a disease in which a part of the body is infested with worms. The worms typically reside inside the digestive tract, but may also attack the liver and other organs. The infection can be caused by pinworm, roundworm, tapeworm, hookworm etc. Children are more often infested with intestinal worms than adults.

Parasites can live within the intestines for years without causing any symptoms. Most of the worm infections are recognized when the worms expel out through stools. Symptoms, when present include itching around the rectum and anus, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain or tenderness, tiredness, anemia, weight loss etc. Anthelminthic drugs can help to expel or destroy parasitic worms.
