Intestinal parasites infect and reside your gastrointestinal tract. You can become infected with two types of intestinal parasites--protozoa and heleminths. Protozoa are microscopic parasites, where as heleminths are worms that are visible to naked eye in their adult stages. Either of these parasites enters your body through contaminated food, water or skin contact. Abdominal pain, gas, dysentery, nausea and vomiting are some of the common symptoms of an intestinal parasitic infection. While there are prescription medications to eliminate these parasites, there are also home remedies you can try.

Pumpkin Seeds

Pumpkin seeds contain numerous beneficial constituents like amino acids, carbohydrates and fatty acids. Also, they have a high vitamin and mineral content. Pumpkin seeds provide natural remedy for roundworms and tapeworms. According to the University of the Maryland Medical Center, Ascariasis, a disease caused by roundworms, affects nearly 1 billion people globally. Mashing pumpkin seeds and mixing it with a juice of your choice will help you get rid of roundworms. Alternatively, mix pumpkin seeds and onions with soy milk to help your body fight roundworms.

Garlic

Garlic is known for its qualities to fight roundworms, giardia lamblia and pinworms. Giardia lamblia infects the gut, disrupting functions of your digestive tract. According to the Centers for Disease and Control Prevention (CDC), giardia has been primarily responsible for waterborne illnesses in the United States. Garlic, young birch leaves, linden tree ashes and cognac are recommended for treatment of giardia lamblia. Mix grated garlic with horseradish. Add 1/2 liter of vodka to 50g of this mixture. Filter the mixture and consume it twice a day before meals to get rid of giardia.

Wormwood

Also known as Artemisia annua, wormwood has proven effective in treating intestinal parasitic infections. It acts as a tonic for the digestive tract and has the ability to calm the digestive juices. Wormwood is not recommended for use for long periods. Tea prepared from wormwood seed is used as a common remedy to get rid of hookworms, roundworms and tapeworms.

Carrots

According to Vitamins to Health, carrots are recommended for treating threadworms. Carrots have a lot of vitamin A and are rich in beta carotene, which gives them the ability to resist penetration by the threadworm larva. A juice prepared by grating carrot and mixing it with honey is a good way to fight pinworms. Consuming 1 tbsp. of this mixture is recommended with breakfast and before going to the bed to keep yourself free from pinworm infection.

Goldenseal

Goldenseal works as an antimicrobial agent and aids in digestion. It is available in various forms such as tablets, salve and powder. Goldenseal enhances the ability of herbs with which it is blended. Goldenseal contains berberine, which works against intestinal parasites such as giardia lamblia, Entamoeba histolytica and pinworms. Combining goldenseal with cloves provides resistance against pinworms and liver flukes.
