Health Remedies - Ancylostomiasis (Hookworm Disease)

Product Categories

Anchylostomiasis is an infection of the intestines caused by hookworm. The human hookworms include two nematode (roundworm) species, Ancylostoma duodenale and Necator americanus. The larvae (immature form of the worm) penetrate the skin, where an itchy rash called ground itch may develop. The larvae migrate to the lungs via the bloodstream, enter the airways and cause coughing. After traveling up the bronchi, the larvae are swallowed. When the larvae are swallowed, they infect the small intestine and develop into adult worms. Adult worms and larvae are excreted in the feces. Most people have no symptoms once the worms enter the intestines. Sometimes there may be abdominal pain, diarrhea, weight loss, loss of appetite and excessive gases. Iron deficiency anemia due to loss of blood may result from heavy infestation by worms.
