Human deworming - what medications, herbs, tablets and preparations to use?



The deworming of people arouses much controversy. For some it may be a necessity, for others it may be a dangerous procedure for health. In this article we will discuss who is threatened by human parasites and how to combat them.

Many parasites can develop in humans. The most common are intestinal lamblia, tapeworms, oats, scabies, Trichinella, red crawfish, human roundworm and lice. WHO estimates that parasites occur in 10% of the world's population. In particular, children living in poor countries with limited access to sanitation are at risk. The youngest ones are often the inflammatory focus of parasites, which with time pass to adult members of the child's immediate environment.

Treatment of people

The Internet is a mine of knowledge, but in the subject of deworming there is a lot of contradictory information and dangerous ways of deworming. There is no consent among doctors either. Some believe that this is an unnecessary procedure, others (especially natural medicine advocates) claim that deworming can prevent many diseases, especially in children playing outdoors and living in the environment of pets. In their opinion, supporters of eating raw meat are also at risk.

Before deworming, the presence of parasites in the human body should be confirmed. A sample of faeces, blood, urine or duodenal content shall be sent to the laboratory for this purpose.

Treatment of people - homemade ways

Treatment should take place in the doctor's office, and the following methods can only support possible treatment. They should be communicated to the person providing the treatment. Natural ways of deworming include:

  • Oregano oil (mix it with 4 drops of water and lemon, consume 3 times a day)
  • Tincture from the wormwood
  • Black walnut tincture
  • Pumpkin seed oil (crushed pumpkin seeds with added water and sugar can also be used). They should be eaten on an empty stomach and after 5 hours drink a little olive oil. Cucurbitacin, which destroys the nervous system of many parasites, is responsible for the good properties of pumpkin seeds.
  • Pau d'acro, the easiest to take in capsules
  • Beet and sauerkraut juice
  • Capuchin balm

Natural deworming methods will not remove parasites from the body, although they may weaken them a little. Herbal infusions are not recommended in the fight against the tapeworm, which, when irritated, can move to another organ in the body. Eliminating sugars, wheat and milk can also help eliminate parasites, although it will not kill them.
