Stomach Worms in Adults

Even though it is children who are more vulnerable to stomach worms or intestinal worms, adults do also get affected by worms. Having undercooked meat or drinking polluted water can cause intestinal worm infection in adults. Consuming uncooked vegetables and fruits without washing properly, can also cause stomach worm problem in adults. Symptoms of intestinal worms differ in adults, however.

Symptoms of Intestinal Worms in Adults

Adults with stomach worms may experience weight loss, bad breath, stomach pain, diarrhea, nausea, sleeplessness, vomiting, heavy appetite, nightmares, headaches, and dark circles under eyes. We adults often do not understand that stomach worms are causing these problems. It is better to have some home remedies if you doubt that you have stomach worm infection.

Home Remedies for Stomach Worms in Adults

  • Garlic is the most effective remedy for intestinal worms in adults. Garlic should be eaten raw for better results. Eat garlic with rice, bread, or any other food. Eating a few cloves of garlic early morning for few days would help you get rid of stomach worms. Garlic would make the environment difficult for worms, and would slowly eliminate them.
  • Asafetida is another remedy for stomach worms. Have asafetida on an empty stomach. Mix it with warm water and take it. If you are using asafetida powder, take a half teaspoon in warm water. This is very effective. Use asafetida in vegetable dishes and pickles.
  • Eating carrots for breakfast helps eliminate worm infections. Eat grated carrot alone for breakfast for a few days. Do not have tea or other food items other than carrots for breakfast. Continue this for a few days. Stomach worms should wash out of your body.
  • Pineapple juice taken early in the morning on an empty stomach can prevent stomach worms. Take pineapple juice for 10 days. Intestinal worms should be eliminated.
  • Eat pumpkin with seeds for breakfast. It can be eaten raw or cooked. It is more effective if eaten raw. Have this for breakfast (do not eat other foods) for 3 to 4 days. Stomach worms should be expelled from the body.
  • Drinking boiled water with salt would also help you get rid of intestinal worms. Put half a teaspoon of salt into boiled water and have it early morning for seven days. Have breakfast only after two hours of drinking this water. This would destroy intestinal worms in your body.
