What is going to happen to parasites in your body (pinworms, threadworms, tapeworms, and etc) when you deworm yourself? Will they melt or will they come out whole?

    So I have been reading a lot lately about healthy living and it made sense when people say that when you want to cure something, you have to treat the root cause of the problem so you start from your insides.

    I am very very scared of Worms, even catterpillars or anything that has no legs.

    I wanted to cleanse my body for health reasons apparently but I don't know what actually is going to happen if I take deworming medicine.

    To those who have tried it, when you take a deworming medicine, will it come out of your body alive? dead? whole?

    Or will it be dead and have melted that you wont even notice them in your feces.

    I really hope its the later cuz i dont wanna see it. :C

    And how often should us humans do this?

    I think Im being paranoid but I just want to live healthy. They said that parasites are one of the reasons why our body doesn't absorb the nutrients we take in because they feed off of those.

    I would greatly appreciate anyone who can respond to this. icon_biggrin.gif Thanks.

    Do not, I repeat do not, do anything without speaking with your doctor.

    If you are worried about 'worms' or think you have a parasite. Go to your doctor and they can do a simple blood work and see. What you're talking about sounds very dangerous. Please consult with a medical doctor.

    Agree. First get a medical confirmation of parasites. They are more common in third world countries with poor sanitation and food quality. Dirty as Philadelphia is, it's not known as a hotbed for internal parasites, reducing your chances for having contracted them, unless you've done overseas traveling.

    BTW: They come out "whole". Haven't you ever had a puppy?
    If you did have worms, your feces would already be full of their eggs, and/or segments, which you would likely be able to see.

    Anyway, rich bitches in Beverly Hills get tape worms on purpose icon_rolleyes.gif

    I'm not sure that worm medicines are dangerous, but if you did have worms, it would be important to use the right kind of medicine, because the cheap stuff that works on pinworms, for example, is useless against tapeworms. You have to have the right diagnosis.

    If you get your food from a grocery store and have indoor plumbing, you probably don't have worms.

    No I never owned one.

    I dont really know if i have parasites or not. I just really want to get tested for it because I want to start from within because Ive been having health issues lately, like post nasal drip and all that and I want to hunt down the root cause of it.

    I think you may have developed a phobia. Why would you assume you have parasites? I have chronic post nasal drip so using your logic I must be infested with worms. icon_confused.gif Have you been watching this show by chance? http://www.animalplanet.com/tv-shows/monsters-inside-me/videos/worms-crawling-under-my-skin.htm
