List of Human Intestinal Parasites
Parasites are often divided into two camps: they are either protozoans or helminths. Helminths are worms, including flatworms, flukes, roundworms and tapeworms. Protozoans are single celled animals such as amoebas. Here is a list of human parasites:
There are different types of human parasitic worms that include pinworms, tapeworms, roundworms, hookworm, flukes, whipworms, and many others. The parasites vary in size and shape, and they cause different types of problems. They consume a significant portion of nutrients from a person leaving him to her hungry and unhealthy. Below is a list of the common parasites of the human body.
There are many parasites that can invade the human body. Some of them are blood borne, meaning they are found in the blood rather than in tissues. These parasites can be transmitted from one person to another through exposure to infected blood (e.g. through blood transfusion or the sharing of a needle). Some are transferred by insect carriers, such as mosquitos. Blood donors are screened for possible parasite exposure, and donations are screened for some blood borne parasites, but some do still get through.
Parasites that Cause IBS Symptoms
IBS has symptoms that overlap with common many intestinal parasite infections. But, few IBS patients are given comprehensive parasite testing.
That’s because in the USA, most doctors consider parasites a 3rd world problem…found only in countries with poor sanitation practices. But, for people with digestive issues or poor immunity, native USA parasites can infect you and cause serious health problems. Also, fruit and vegetables imported from 3rd world countries carry foreign parasites.
Parasites are one of the nastiest things that nature has provided our beloved planet. They can manipulate the human brain, rewrite DNA and even turn a host into a living dead. Parasites range from one-celled organisms to relatively large tape worms. In this post, we look at the five most dangerous parasites known to man.
The thought that you may have parasites in your body is very scary. They are organisms that feed and live in the body of another living thing. Most parasites are found in the digestive system because they are associated with food. While you may be scared to host a parasite, they are very common. In fact, most people do not realize that they are harboring such organisms until they are diagnosed. They cause a myriad of symptoms, including digestive challenges. Most of the parasites, in your digestive system, feed on part of the nutrients that the body requires.
