Infomation about Tapeworms


What Is Tapeworms

Worms are parasites and intruders in the human body.  Parasites are organisms that feed off other organisms, for example, they can live inside the body or on the skin and feed off the host.  They enter the body via food or water ingestion and can be transmitted from the environment to the skin.  Tapeworms are parasites that infect the intestinal tract in humans or animals. The head of the Tapeworm attaches to the intestinal wall and that is how it grows and produces eggs.  Tapeworms can survive for up to 30 years in the host's body. 

Signs Of Tapeworms

People with Tapeworms may not experience any symptoms, or they may be so minor that the person doesn't associate them with a Tapeworm infection.  People may experience different symptoms if the infection is Intestinal or Invasive.  Symptoms for both of these infections are listed below. 

Intestinal Infection:

  • Nausea
  • General weakness
  • Loss of appetite
  • Stomach pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Weight loss
  • Inadequate absorption of nutrients

Invasive Infection:

  • Fever
  • Allergic reaction to Tapeworm larvae
  • Jaundice
  • Bacterial infections
  • Cystic masses or lumps
  • Seizures or other neurological symptoms
What Causes Tapeworms

Often living in the lower intestinal tract, Tapeworms usually enter the body via undercooked beef, pork, or fish.  Those with Tapeworm infections may not experience symptoms.  The best way to avoid getting tapeworms is to wash your hands after meat preparation or consumption.  Ingesting Tapeworm eggs is primarily caused by drinking water that has been contaminated with the feces from an infected person or animal.  An animal, for instance, that excretes Tapeworm eggs in its feces in soil near a water source, the eggs can contaminate the water if it comes in contact with the soil.  Common causes can include:

  • Ingesting Tapeworm eggs or larvae (via food or water source)
  • Eating undercooked or raw meat (such as beef, pork, venison, or lamb)
  • Poor hygiene habits (bathing infrequently, preparing food after using the bathroom, or not washing hands before eating)
  • Frequently visiting developing countries that have poor sanitary conditions

Natural Remedies
  • While it is an all natural pesticide, diatomaceous earth is one of the best anti-parasitic remedies.  When you buy diatomaceous earth, it is important to buy food grade as the industrial grade is chemically treated and used in swimming pool filters.  It kills insects, parasites, or Tapeworms by dehydrating them.  If you mix one tablespoon of diatomaceous earth with water and drink it for seven days straight, it should effectively kill the living parasites in your body.  The amount of the diatomaceous earth needs to be altered if using it for children.  For example, a 4-foot tall child should take 2 teaspoons, while a 2-foot tall child should only take 1 teaspoon.  While using diatomaceous earth is it important to stay hydrated, as the the earth naturally dehydrates the body. 

  • If you aren’t going to use diatomaceous earth, using a combination of woodworm, black walnut hulls, and cloves is another way to efficiently cleanse the body of Worms.  Add thyme and burdock to this regimen and you should be able to effectively flush out the parasites.  If finding these items proves difficult, you can use the Worm Out formula, which is a natural parasite cleanser that contains all of them.  You can also participate in our Parasite and Worm Cleanse to rid the Worms from your system. 

  • You may consider participating in a liver cleanse or detox.  If the liver isn’t functioning optimally, the bile flow will be reduced.  When the liver is cleansed, be it with a cleanse, dandelion root tea, beets, or other alternatives, bile flow will be improved and thusly attack living parasites.  And Tapeworms hate bile!

  • An effective remedy, which is used Ayurvedic medicine, is unripe papaya.  You can blend unripe, raw papaya into a smoothie with a little bit of raw honey and add it to a few tablespoons of hot water.  Drink that mixture on an empty stomach.  Grinding the seeds into a powder can also be a beneficial remedy to help get rid of Tapeworms.  Take the ground papaya seeds and blend it with 1 tablespoon of coconut oil, 1 cup of coconut milk, some chunks of unripe papaya, and a squeeze of raw honey.  Drink this smoothie every morning for at least one week.  

  • It’s a good idea to refrain from eating meat, pork, poultry, fish, seafood, and shellfish because they can contain parasitic eggs and cysts.  Additionally, get rid of food allergens, as Tapeworms and parasites thrive on them. Continued consumption of soy, wheat, eggs, and dairy can lead to parasites having a long-term home that is your body.  It’s also a good idea to consume raw garlic and onions as they provide the body with sulfur, which contains amino acids that are anti-parasitic.  If you don’t want to eat them raw, you can juice them with leafy greens and lemons. 

  • Turmeric can be a beneficial herb to help get rid of Tapeworms because of its antiseptic and antimicrobial properties.  Juice raw turmeric, add a pinch of sea salt to the juice, and consume this every morning for a week on an empty stomach.  If you can't obtain fresh turmeric, you can add a pinch of salt and 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric powder to 1/2 cup warm water.  Drink the second concoction daily for five straight days.
