Intestinal Parasites: Best Practices to Avoid Them

Intestinal parasites are unwanted hosts that can disrupt our digestive well-being. Let’s learn together how to recognize, avoid, and effectively combat them.


Intestinal parasites, such as pinworms, roundworms, and tapeworms, are organisms that infiltrate and live in the human digestive system. These small invaders can cause a range of unpleasant symptoms and disrupt our health.

What are the signs of having worms?

Symptoms of a parasitic infestation vary but often include:

  • Unexplained fatigue
  • Abdominal pain and digestive issues
  • Sudden weight loss
  • Presence of worms in the stool

If you experience any of these signs, it is crucial to consult a healthcare professional.

What causes intestinal worms?

Parasites are primarily transmitted through the ingestion of contaminated food or water, contact with infected soil, or direct transmission from person to person. Children, often playing outside and putting objects in their mouths, are particularly vulnerable.

Can intestinal worms go away on their own?

In some mild cases, the immune system can eliminate parasites without treatment. However, without intervention, many infestations persist and worsen, leading to complications. Therefore, it is essential to actively treat these infections.

How to prevent intestinal worm infestations?

Prevention is based on good hygiene practices:

  • Wash fruits and vegetables thoroughly.
  • Drink potable water.
  • Practice good hand hygiene, especially before eating or after using the toilet.
  • Avoid consuming undercooked meat or fish.
