Some types of worms like tapeworms can go away without treatment provided the patient has a strong immune system, good hygiene and maintains a healthy diet. However, in most cases anti-parasitic medication will be required to treat the infection. Treatment options will vary depending on the type of worm and symptoms exhibited.
Symptoms such as the following may start to appear: diarrhoea, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain or tenderness, gas, bloating, fatigue, sudden weight loss, dysentery (an intestinal infection causing blood and mucus in the stool), or itching or rashes around the rectum or vulva.
The following are the best forms of medicine for various intestinal worms:
Tapeworm—Oral medication called praziquantel (Biltricide), which paralyzes the adult tapeworm, detaches it from the gut, dissolves it and finally passes it out through the stool.
Roundworm—Anthelmintics like bendazole (Vermox, Emverm) and albendazole (Albenza) Fluke—Triclabendazole
Intestinal worms cannot be cured solely with herbal medicines, especially in severe infections. It is recommended to use herbal formulations in tandem with antiparasitic medications prescribed by a doctor.
Avoid eating raw or undercooked beef, pork and seafood to reduce the chances of infection.
