|Hook worms, Round worms, Tape worms, Thread worms
Worms and other intestinal parasites which infest human beings are found in all countries of the world. However, they are more
common in tropical and subtropical areas and are widely prevalent during the rainy season. Children are more often infested
with intestinal worms than adults.
The usual symptoms of intestinal worms are diarrhoea, foul breath, dark circles under the eyes, constant desire for food,
restlessness at night with bad dreams, anaemia, and headaches. Round-worms may give rise to inflammation of the intestine
and lungs, nausea, vomiting, loss of weight, fever, nervousness, and irritability.
|Thread worms may cause intense itching in the area around the rectum. They may also cause periodic bouts of diarrhoea
alternating with constipation, loss of weight, cough, and fever. Hookworms may give rise to anaemia and nutritional disorders.
The eggs of these parasites are introduced into the human system through the medium of food or water. Roundworms are
caused by eating contaminated food. Thread worms may enter the body from dirty fingers and food. Hookworms enter tile
human body through bare foot walking on infected earth. Tapeworms are transmitted to the body through undercooked flesh
foods or foods contaminated by dogs.
The real cause of intestinal worms, however, is faulty living. The eggs of these worms, taken into the human body, through
food and water, can breed in the intestines only if they find there a suitable medium for their propagation. This medium is an
intestinal tract clogged with morbid matter.

Home Remedies for Intestinal Worms using Garlic:
Garlic has been used from ancient times by the Chinese, Greeks, Romans, Indians, and Babylonians for expelling intestinal
worms. It is still used by modem medical practitioners for the same purpose. Both fresh garlic and its oil are effective. An
ancient method of its administration was to place a couple cloves of fresh garlic in each shoe. As the person walked, the cloves
got crushed, and the worm-killing garlic oil was absorbed by skin and carried by the blood into the intestines easily, as
possessed a powerful penetrative force. This ancient method is worth a trial by those who do not like the taste of garlic and
cannot eat it. Those who can eat raw garlic, however, should chew three cloves of garlic every morning.

given in quantities of 90 to 180 ml three times, at intervals of one hour, to an adult. A purgative should be given after the last
