Home Remedies to Deworm Yourself

Intestinal worm is a common problem in growing children, particularly from developing countries. There are many causes to this parasitical infection which mainly arises due to unhygienic conditions. One of the most common modes of infection is consuming under cooked meat. In many places, particularly roadside stalls, meat dishes are not always prepared with utmost care. As such the infectious worms growing in the meat get transferred to your body, where it adheres itself to the intestinal walls, acting like a parasite where it draws nutrition from the host's body to grow while causing harm to the host. Children also get this infection while playing in muddy fields inhabited by these worms. Therefore, parents commonly make their children de worm almost every year.
While there are medicines to help one deworm, the awareness about it is more important to reach to a larger group of people. It is important to take preventive measures by maintaining a good hygiene, cooking meat well before eating, wearing shoes while heading out, so on and so forth. Some of the common symptoms of being infected by intestinal worms include abdomen pain or abnormal itching, sudden weight loss, blood in stool, body rashes, etc.


On this National Deworming Day, The Union Health Ministry of India reached out to nearly 34 crore children across India, including in private schools, to spread awareness and help them deworm. In case you are wondering how to prevent this infection, we bring you natural home remedies that will help you detoxify your system and prevent any such infection.
