- Did you know that some parasites can remain in the human body for years without showing obvious symptoms until they become extremely dangerous?
A striking example is the liverworm parasite (Fasciola hepatica). These parasites can live in the liver for years, causing gradual damage to the organ. Over time, they can lead to cirrhosis of the liver, a condition that can be fatal if not treated properly.
Imagine that inside your body there are tiny invisible aliens such as roundworms and protozoa (microorganisms) that feed on your nutrients and silently make you sick. Their presence can cause a number of health issues that affect both your physical and emotional well-being.
If you don’t deworm, these invaders will continue to multiply and spread within you. Over time, they can cause a wide range of unpleasant and debilitating symptoms such as chronic diarrhea, severe abdominal pain, anemia, headaches, etc.
In children, parasites can interfere with their growth and development, affecting their school performance and preventing them from achieving their full potential. In adults, these infections can reduce the immune system’s ability to fight other diseases, making them more vulnerable to infections and prolonging periods of illness.
Similarly, constant fatigue, irritability, and lack of concentration can undermine the quality of your life and personal relationships. Regular deworming is required. Don’t wait until symptoms become apparent. Many parasites remain hidden and cause internal damage before you notice any signs.
Getting rid of them is essential to maintain good health and prevent long-term complications. Deworming is a simple and effective procedure. Remember that prevention is key: practicing good personal hygiene, washing food for several years, and drinking safe water are important measures to reduce the risk of parasitic infections.
How often is deworming recommended?
Recommended at least once a year to protect us. However, in certain situations, such as living in areas where parasites are more common, your doctor may recommend doing this more often. For adequate deworming, it is important to follow your healthcare professional’s instructions.
