Parasites are the unseen enemies within one’s body. These are organisms that live inside of a host from which they live off of. These parasites derive food from their host while also depriving the host of them. The host of a parasitic infection can be anything from a small rodent to a human.
Intestinal parasites are annoyingly common. So, here are some natural remedies to prevent getting intestinal parasites.
1. Don’t Eat Undercooked Food
One of the quickest ways to get parasites in humans is to get the parasites out of food that has been undercooked. Therefore, no matter what kind of meat you are eating, make sure it’s been cooked well before you ingest it.
2. Drink Purified Water
Many of the intestinal parasites that people get are from doing something very simple, drinking water. This is mostly common when people are in countries that don’t have water filtration systems. If you are traveling or don’t know where the water is coming from, try not to drink it. Instead, look for filtered water or water that you know has been purified to drink. And it’s not just drinking water that is the problem. Bathing in water that is full of parasites is also a common cause of parasites in humans.
3. Wash your vegetables and fruits
Many people think fruits and vegetables are safe to eat no matter where they come from. Well, you never know what’s on the outside of those fruits and vegetables you are considering eating. It’s very possible there are parasites sitting there just waiting for you to ingest them. So, it is better to play it safe. Wash your vegetables and fruits thoroughly before eating them and if you can, peel them all to take that one extra layer of threat away.
