TRICHINELLA (Trichinella spiralis parasites infecting humans)
Trichinella spiralis can infect bears, horses, humans, pigs and rodents. Trichinosis can be contracted by eating undercooked or raw pork infected with these parasites. Cysts are present in infected pork and once eaten the immature roundworms are released and can travel to human muscles. They burrow into the larynx, chest, abdomen, jaw and upper arm and cause tender calcified cysts in muscles and fever.
Symptoms of trichinella infection
Upon infection there will be two to four weeks of acute gastrointestinal symptoms, thereafter severe muscle pain plus a wide range symptoms which can masquerade as a variety of more familiar diseases. In the advanced stages the Trichinella creates cysts within muscles, causes extreme dehydration, swelling of the lips and eyelids, difficulty breathing, enlarged lymph glands, meningitis and pneumonia.
Natural treatment for trichinella infection
Garlic: Take four cloves per day. Crush or finely chop and leave to stand for ten minutes then take with a glass of water or juice or add to a meal.
Ginger can be grated or sliced and added to herbal teas made from any of the other herbal remedies.
Pumpkin seeds can be eaten whole or mashed and mixed with juice. Two or three hours after eating up to 25 ounces of seeds, a laxative such as senna or prunes is recommended to purge the intestines. Cascara sagrada is a herb that can also be used after eating pumpkin seeds to help eliminate parasites from the body. It is milder than senna, but has a similar action.
