How To Get Rid of Them?
To get rid of worms in humans you need two things: an anthelmintic and a way to detox your intestine and colon to get rid of the worm debris.
An anthelmintic is a treatment...a drug or an herb, a spice or some type of food...that will kill and expel parasitic worms. It derives from the word helminth which means worm.
According to Dr Hulda Clark that which kills adult worms won't kill the eggs and vice versa. So you may need to take more than one remedy. And what is absolutely required is something that will cleanse both the intestiine and the colon.
What's Wrong with These Anthelmintic Drugs?
On Wikipedia you will find a list of anthelmintic drugs such as Albendazole, Mebendazole, Niclosamide, Ivermectin, Pyrantel pamoate and so on.
Naturally, in life-threatening cases, a potent but risky drug may be necessary. But are you going to risk serious injury to your child for a simple case of pinworms or tapeworms?
Check the adverse reactions to these drugs. Many of these drugs have caused some sort of serious adverse reaction.
Here's just a small sample:
- aplastic anemia (marrow suppression)
- acute liver failure
And here's a list of the less serious reactions:
- hair loss
- vision problems
- stomach pain
- mental confusion
- mood changes
While the serious reactions are rare, they can be devastating.

Simple and Effective Elimination of Worms, Their Toxins and Debris
While taking remedies that kill the worms, it is essential to gently detox the intestine and colon.
Here are simple yet effective alternatives to OTC parasite drugs
Follow our Parasite Cleanse and Bowel Cleanse programs - THEREAFTER, continue with these simple remedies for a period of 28 days and repeat every 3 to 6 months. The initial cleaning out of the bowel for the removal of parasites and the parasite cleanse is a three day program - however, the natural remedies below can continue thereafter. Once the initial big cleanse has been done, it is easy for you to incorporate these tips into your daily healthy living program to ensure the critters do not return.
Stir 1 teaspoon of Psyllium Seeds in an 8-ounce glass of water or juice and drink immediately. Drink plenty of healthy liquids (water, herbal teas or natural unsweetened juice) throughout the day. If you don't get adequate liquids, psyllium seeds will have the opposite effect: constipation.
Before going to bed, put 1 to 2 tablespoons of Flax Seeds in a cup and pour boiling water over it as if making tea. In the morning before breakfast, stir. Then let the seeds settle and drink the liquid.
Chop 2 cloves and allow to stand for 10 min. Then swallow. Regular ingestion of raw garlic will help to get rid of intestinal parasites
Next time you eat a pumpkin, don’t throw the seeds away. Eat them along. Cucurbitin, an amino acid, found in pumpkin seeds does not kill the intestinal worms but paralyzes them in the digestive tract. Once they are paralyzed, they can then easily be flushed out of the body through excretion. For this very reason, pumpkin seeds are a wonderful parasite killer. Take 5 to 6 seeds in a day every day for 2 weeks to ensure complete removal of the worms. You can add them to your salad, grind them and add them to your food, or take them whole if you wish.
Consume 5 to 6 seeds every day either whole, or grind them into a fine powder, and take it with a bit of honey or water. You can also add it your fruit smoothie, or sprinkle them on your fruit salad. No matter which way you eat it, they work like a miracle for your stomach and help in killing those parasites.
Note: Do not consume papaya seeds if you’re suffering from clotting disorders, or taking blood-thinning medications, as papain can increase the chances of bleeding and leave you in a dangerous state.
Mix together 1 tablespoon of coconut oil to 1 glass of water, and stir well. The coconut oil is lighter than water and will float on top. After you’ve drunk the oil (as it floats on top), you can then consume the water to balance the coconut taste of the oil. Drink the coconut water for a healthy worm-free stomach. You can also take it to your tea so that when the coconut oil is consumed, you are left with a delicious tea to enjoy.
Note: Take virgin or extra virgin coconut oil as compared to the normal coconut oil as it is proved more effective.
As most parasites such as human pin holes (Enterobius vermicularis) leave their eggs to hatch near around the anus area, it is necessary to clean the area inside out effectively. An Enema is the procedure of injecting a liquid via the anus to cleanse the rectum and large intestines.
A Coffee enema is an effective remedy to flush those parasites and their eggs building up near your anus area. The coffee, when injected through the rectum, directly fights the worms by flowing through the large intestine and cleaning it. You also have the added bonus of cleansing the liver at the same time.
It is strongly advised that you always perform an enema with plain water before doing coffee enema for the removal of parasites. Normal enema will flush your colon and rectum, allowing the coffee from the enema to be absorbed better.
Note: Use only certified organic coffee as commercial grade coffee can be harmful to the liver when used in coffee enema. Reduce the amount of coffee to half for a few days if you feel wired or hyper, or suffer palpitations or irregular heartbeat after a coffee enema. Make sure you only use clean spring / borehole water or distilled water to flush the rectal passage prior to the coffee enema WHEN doing a parasite cleanse.
All of these remedies are effective. You can even do all of them over a period of a month - that way you are sure to not only get the adults but the eggs as well.
Natural Anthelmintic Alternatives to Pharmceuticals
The following herbs have been used for centuries as a treatment for getting rid of worms in humans:
- ground cloves
- green black walnut hulls
There are many references that date back hundreds of years testifying to the effectiveness of these three herbs. And the controversial Canadian Doctor Hulda Clark claims that the combination of these three herbs will eliminate more than 100 types of parasites.
All the remedies work better when performed before breakfast as your stomach is empty which results in better absorption. If not, take those 30 minutes before the meal for better results.
Even though the worms will be dead after following the remedies, they will also have to be excreted out of your body. Consume plenty of water and maintain a healthy diet when following the remedies to ensure that they are out of the system, else they may leave eggs and larvae that can reproduce further and continue the situation. Be sure however, to follow the instructions on our bowel and parasite cleanse with regard to foods. Once these two cleanses have been performed, continue with the home remedies whilst eating a healthy diet.
Proper exercise will help you maintain a healthy metabolism and will help in proper excretion of the worms.Contact a medical practitioner if the problem persists for long. If not treated, parasitical infections can even lead to some lethal health problems.
