In this article we address the topic of “ intestinal parasites in humans ” in a well-known scientific , evidence-based and profound way. The aim of the specialist article is to help you understand the subject fundamentally , recognize an infestation in yourself and to obtain the necessary knowledge, to get rid of parasites , or treat .
The experience of our medical professionals shows that most people harbor endoparasites in their intestines . And not without reason. The intestine of the average Western European is a veritable paradise for parasites , because:
In a healthy intestine , parasites cannot thrive.
In the course of evolution, the human body has developed strategies against the invasion of parasites . Since the most common route of infection is the ingestion of parasite eggs via the digestive tract , the intestine is usually the first stop of these intruders. If the body is now able to regulate the parasitic load in the intestine , parasites can not cause the body any damage.
“good” intestinal bacteria are primarily responsible for this regulation. These have a limiting effect on the pathogenic representatives of this species . For most people, however, the beneficial intestinal bacteria are in the absolute minority . In this case, parasites have easy play in the intestines.
Many people are given the first antibiotics in their childhood . Each dose of such a drug reduces beneficial intestinal bacteria by up to 50% . Some important bacterial strains, including so-called lead strains, are even irrevocably exterminated .
Through antibiotic residues in meat and fish, pesticides in fruit and vegetables and above all through stress the number of beneficial intestinal bacteria increases over the course of life from . The environment for parasites improves accordingly, so that an infection inevitably also leads to a parasite infestation of the intestine .
A so-called biofilm is also formed in the intestine due to the lack of bacteria. Here, parasites can protect themselves from drugs and the immune system .
The cause of the biofilm is a intestinal fault symbiosis . One of the tasks of “positive” intestinal bacteria is to reduce pathogenic bacteria to a non-pathogenic level. If you are from the above Reasons are not available, “negative” bacteria spread in the intestine . These form the biofilm .
We provide more information on biofilm in our Technical article “Biofilm in humans” to disposal.
Once protected by the biofilm , parasites can hardly be removed from the intestine. To remove both, special measures are required. You can find out what these are in our large Parasite Cure Guide :
In bowel movements , parasites are usually not to be found. The worms, unicellular organisms and flukes live in the depths of the intestine and there would be no advantage for them to be excreted with the stool. Only the eggs of the worms are occasionally placed in the stool for the purpose of spreading .
Why a worm infestation via the stool is only rarely diagnosed has the following background :
1. Worm eggs are not in every bowel movement ; they are only detectable in about every tenth sample .
2. The eggs of most genera are only detectable for a short time . The stool would have to be examined immediately after elimination.
3. As a rule, not tested for unicellular parasites , which make up the main part of the parasites in the intestine . 
Further information on why a parasite infestation is extremely seldom recognized by the doctor can be here can be obtained.
There are two exceptions where parasites are regularly found in stool:
1. In the event of an infestation with pinworms . These are small, white worms that are visible in the stool and can cause anus itch. In this case we recommend ours specific technical article on the subject of “worms in the stool: what should I do?” to consult.
Laymen in the field of parasitology assume that pinworms are the most common intestinal parasites. Due to their obviousness, however, they are only increasingly diagnosed .
2. The worms are dead . By a Parasitenkur worms in the intestine can be killed and these can then be found in the toilet. The Swiss Parasite Free Association shows what it looks like in one Image Gallery.
If only unspecific symptoms are present and the stool examination was negative , most doctors will find that there is no parasite infection . In this case, only specialized and trained medical professionals strive for further examinations . These could be :
These examination methods are also not error-free and often lead to incorrect diagnoses .  Diagnosing parasites is a lengthy and complex process that requires specific expertise , as well as appropriate apparatus and diagnostic Tools required. 
Incidentally, a colonoscopy is not suitable for detecting parasites in the intestine. This is because they often live in the small intestine , which is not included in the colonoscopy for anatomical reasons. Parasites are biofilm not visible for the camera . In addition, they are visually difficult to distinguish from the intestinal wall .
Because of the difficult diagnostic options , our doctors have developed a test which, in our experience, works exactly. Based on the presence or absence of a symptom complex , the probability of a parasite infection is reliably estimated . As part of the non-profit association work, the test is free of charge :
As part of our association work, we have noticed that more and more people are suffering from systemic parasite infestation . This means that the entire organism is under parasitic load . Organs such as the heart , liver or brain can be affected.  Detailed information can be found in our Technical article “Parasites in the body” can be obtained.
Parasite eggs get through food , contaminated water or other transfer in the intestines. A healthy intestinal wall now represents reliable protection against microbial pathogens , so that these can spread in the intestine but not get into the bloodstream .
In more and more people, however, the protective intestinal wall is no longer intact , but full of holes . This is how microbes and parasites get from the intestines into the bloodstream and from there into all organs .
The syndrome that describes this “holey intestine” is called “ Leaky Gut ” in medicine. The causes of leaky gut syndrome are :
We have the symptoms of a systemic parasite infestation in Technical article: “Parasites: Symptoms in humans” described.
As already mentioned, the complaints caused by parasites in the intestine are almost always unspecific . This means that the symptoms can not be clearly assigned to them or their effects. For this reason we recommend the free parasite test to claim, which calculates the probability of an infestation from symptom complexes.
Possible symptoms of intestinal parasites are .:
We have described in detail here how parasites cause these symptoms:
Parasites in the intestine are a massive burden on health. In addition to promoting a malformed intestinal symbiosis, this is mainly due to the following reasons:
In the small intestine, parasites eat important nutrients , especially iron , vitamin B12 and magnesium . The replenishment of vitamins, minerals and trace elements only shows short-term effects, as parasites remove them from the body again. If intestinal parasites are not treated, a deficiency can cause the following diseases in the long term   :
Parasites harm humans in various other ways and can thus trigger a considerable number of different clinical pictures . More on this in our Technical article “Sick from parasites”.
The rope worm is the most present intestinal parasite in the human body . According to current studies (Volinsky & Gubarev, 2014) most people in the world harbor the highly contagious parasite .
We can confirm this information on the basis of the clinic. Almost every user separated rope worms as part of one Parasitenkur the end.
Rope Worm in the fact check :
Further information can be obtained from our Technical article on rope worms can be removed.
The microsporidia (or also microspora) is, as the name suggests, a single-celled fungal spore , which has a parasitic effect in the body. In the past, only people with severe immunodeficiency (e.g. AIDS) were infected. Today more and more people carry the pathogen.
Microsporidia in the fact check  :
These single-cell small intestinal parasites are also infecting more and more people and can trigger unspecific digestive symptoms .
Giardia in the fact check :
Optionally, the fourth most common parasites in the human intestine are cryptosporidia. In most cases, the infection is asymptomatic . mild fever , dizziness , diarrhea and abdominal cramps are rarely observed immediately after infection. These symptoms are usually not attributed to microparasites, which is why cryptosporidia are rarely diagnosed.
Cryptosporidia in the fact check  :
The minimum number of pathogens (10 single-cell organisms) is sufficient for the infection.
This parasite in the intestine affects far more people than was recently assumed. Clear symptoms do not necessarily and also only appear years to decades after the infection.
It is generally believed that tapeworm patients are thin and emaciated. However, due to the energy dense diet in the western latitudes, this is only seldom the case.
Tapeworms in the fact check   :
through its outer shell (neodermis).
through the stool
Ascariasis parasites are the third most common intestinal worms and sixth most common intestinal parasites in Western Europeans. It is reported again and again on the Internet that a roundworm infestation can even lead to death .
In fact, over 1.5 billion people in East Asia, Africa and Central America are infected with this parasite. Of these, only 0.00015% die as a result of complications from the infestation (extremely immunocompromised children in slums). For comparison: In Germany, 0.16% of all infected people die of flu. The flu is a thousand times more dangerous than the roundworm. This also makes sense from the perspective of the parasites:
Parasites do not kill their host because it is their biotope.
Roundworm in the fact check :
The complaints are hardly assigned to a parasite infestation by non-specialized doctors. In addition, they are usually not so strong that a doctor is visited . For these reasons, a correct diagnosis is seldom . The symptoms subside after two weeks at the latest. The infestation remains , however. If unspecific symptoms appear months or years later, a infestation with roundworms is usually no longer considered by the doctor.
In about 30% of cases the infection is even asymptomatic .
Schistosoma (schistosomiasis / schistosomiasis pathogen) and other intestinal leeches populate the intestines of numerous people. The leeches attach themselves to the wall of the small or large intestine and suck blood there .
Gut leeches in the fact check :
In the feces white worms can be seen. In addition, there is usually a strong anal itching . Pinworms are sometimes classified as harmless, but this is a mistake.
Because the small worms inevitably have a pathogenic effect on the body.
In most cases, pinworms are treated incorrectly , which often has serious consequences . Since this is of immense importance , the Swiss Parasite Free Association has devoted its own article to the topic of “pinworms”. By doing Technical article “Worms in the stool: what should I do?” explains a parasite expert:
Amoebas are mostly only known in connection with amoebic dysentery (amoebiasis), which can be triggered by these single-celled parasites. However, more severe symptoms of the disease only occur when the amoeba E. histolytica and only in 10% of the cases . With the remaining 90% or with an infection by other amoebas, the affected person is asymptomatic , but suffers from peripheral parasitic stress . This leads to unspecific complaints in the short or long term, which are hardly ever attributed to the amoeba.
Amoebas are hardly diagnosed due to the lack of symptoms
Amoebas in the fact check:
The unicellular parasite Blastocystis hominis usually does not cause any symptoms. Because of this, lay people in the field of parasitology wrongly assume that the pathogen does not cause any harm. .
Pure by definition every parasite causes damage in the body. He always draws one-sided benefit from living with the landlord.
Blastocysts in the fact check  :
Detect parasite infestation in the intestines in yourself
The classification of the most common intestinal parasites shows that it is difficult or impossible to recognize an infestation based on individual symptoms .
For this reason, the doctors of the non-profit Swiss association Parasitenfrei have had a Parasite test programmed, through which a free assessment can be obtained within a few minutes about whether an infection is present with intestinal parasites:
One goal of parasites is to spread within the body and across hosts . The latter happens primarily through the excretion of infectious eggs with the stool . The infection finally takes place in the following ways :
The number 1 source of infection is undoubtedly drinking water . Parasite eggs get into the water through fertilization with liquid manure and human excretions. The waterworks are financially, technically and organizationally not in a position to adequately filter the water . The Drinking Water Ordinance does not define an upper limit for microbes and therefore also not for parasites .
A biofilm is created in the supply pipes. Parasites from the tap water nest in this , multiply and are washed into the water again . In order to prove publicly what is already known in parasite research, we examined the filter sediment of a reverse osmosis system using microscopy . We discovered living worms in the water :
The facts are described in detail in our specialist article “ Parasites – Infection through contaminated drinking water “:
The second most common source of infection are infected people .
Contagion can occur as follows:
– Sexual intercourse , above all
– Eliminators , e.g.:
More detailed information on this can be found in our article „Parasites: Infection through shedders“ can be obtained.
Due to increasing factory farming, the infection rate of farm animals with parasites has increased significantly in the last 20 years . Farmers are already sounding the alarm. The manure from the infected animals is used to fertilize vegetable fields . In addition, 21% of all Western European farms use illegal manure to cultivate their fields, which is significantly more polluted .
Contaminated vegetables can not be freed from parasites easily. Studies show that cleaning with water is not sufficient despite the use of a vegetable brush .
In our specialist article „Parasites – contaminated vegetables“ we covered this topic in detail and added videos .
Parasites use insects , such as B. Mosquitoes , for transmission . The Arthropoda become infected with intestinal parasites through the faeces of animals . Particular caution applies to ticks . Dr. Alan McDonald found out that 20 out of 30 of these bloodsuckers carry parasites . Among other things, they can be the dreaded Morgellons transfer .
We have more on this in our specialist article „Parasitic infection via insects“ drafted.
A source of infection by intestinal parasites that does not correlate with excretions is the consumption of contaminated meat or fish  . This is because of the following reasons:
– Parasites in the meat
This is what everyday life looks like in large kitchens:
Further information and advice on infection with parasites through meat consumption are available here retrieve.
– Parasites in fish
The result is a massive infestation of food fish:
More about parasites in fish can be here can be found out.
Another way of getting infected with parasites is through dogs , cats and, more rarely, through rodents . Both the oral contact with animals as well as contact with them Excretions, carries the risk of infection .
It is well known that dogs and cats have to be dewormed on a regular basis. Unfortunately, these measures are by no means sufficient to exclude them as carriers .
The reasons for this are:
In addition, wormer products mean serious health consequences for the animal . This and other information is the Article “Parasites – Contagion by Pets” refer to.
Pinworms are an exception here. They can also be transmitted through contaminated laundry and other objects. If there is a pinworm infestation , we refer to ours Technical article “worms in the chair”.
We recommend the following measures to protect a transmission:
These measures help to avoid infection again . However, parasites that are already in the intestine and other organs must be removed or diverted . All about this in the next chapter .
Medicines are not an effective and safe way to get rid of parasites.
The reasons for this are:
We have the topic in detail in the article „Means against parasites: medication or home remedies? “ dealt with.
The field reports presented to us show that so far not a single user who contacted us had success with drugs in relation to parasites . On the other hand, serious side effects such as sleep disorders , massive hair loss and lasting damaged skin were reported without exception.
There is no “miracle cure” against parasites in the intestine , even if users certainly and understandably want it.
Numerous “herbal mixtures against parasites” can be found on the Internet. Unfortunately, experience has shown that these are ineffective and only divert one thing – money from your wallet . We have an independent one for the common products analysis carried out.
The “bitter” but honest pill:
Parasites are stubborn creatures that do not leave the body easily . They had 3 million years to adapt perfectly to humans . They have incredible strategies designed to survive and spread in the body.
It is therefore in good faith to think that parasites can be eliminated by taking a certain tablet or herbal mixture .
In our big one Parasitenkur-Guide We have described in detail which aspects, according to the research results, have to be considered in order to get rid of parasites in the long term .
Below are the most relevant factors from the guide in a nutshell:
How an effective parasite cure is designed, which takes into account all of the listed factors , has been summarized in our large parasite cure guide :
Parasite expert and honorary member of the Swiss Parasite Free Association , Kira Tau , will answer the questions on the subject of “Parasites in the intestines”.
K.T .: We have a database of doctors in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic and the Netherlands. Write a E-Mail an [email protected] with the result of your Parasitentests and your zip code. We will find the nearest specialist doctor for you.
The free parasite test: quick, easy, precise
K.T.: A medical history is around 450.00 euros . The parasite treatment itself starts at 700 euros . If the doctor has to see you more often, it can cost up to 2100 euros . In addition, there are costs for laboratory analysis , blood count , stool analysis and medicines . So at least 2500 euros for the entire course .
K.T.: In my experience, only one helpsParasitenkur.
K.T.: Hardly at all. A stool examination is unsuitable , the colonoscopy is also not available as a diagnostic tool (as already described). So I advise you to look at the symptom complex . der is suitable for this Free parasite test by the non-profit Swiss association Parasitenfrei.
K.T.: Only protocols should be run that have been specially designed for children . More information here.
K.T.: We have all information on this topic in one detailed technical article published .
K.T.: Here I would like you again on our Refer to specialist articles on the subject of “pinworms”.
K.T.: Here I would like you again on our Reference articles on the subject of “pinworms” .
K.T.: Yes, it may be possible. If the worms have already spread through the intestines into the bloodstream , with a little luck they can be made visible by dark field microscopy . Certain parameters in a blood test , such as decreased granulocytes, can also be an indication of parasites in the intestine.
