Worms & Parasites

Pinworm or threadworm infection is the most common type of worm infection in children. Common symptoms of pinworm infection include itchy anus, itchy nose, bloating, loss of appetite and nausea.

The most common remedies for pinworm infection include:

Cina: This is the #1 remedy for pinworms. Symptoms include anger, irritability, constant rubbing of the nose, itchy anus, dark rings around the eyes, and increased appetite.

Granatum: Symptoms include pain around the naval, itchy anus, hunger and salivation.

Spigelia: Symptoms include pain around the naval and an intense crawling sensation around the anus.

Teucrium: Symptoms include restlessness at night, offensive breath, tingling nose and crawling around the anus.

Dosage: Give a 6C, 12C, or 30C potency of the remedy indicated above 2-3 times per day for one week.

In addition, try Natrum Phosphoricum 6X homeopathic cell salt, taken 3 times per day. Nat Phos cell salt discourages and expels worms by getting rid of excess acidity and sugar in the body.

Commonsense measures: Try to avoid sugar in the diet, which is what worms like to feed on. Eating roasted pumpkin seeds and/or raw garlic can help kill off worms naturally. Maintain good hygiene habits.

*Note that other remedies may be indicated; this is not an exhaustive list. Constitutional homeopathic treatment under the guidance of a professional homeopath is recommended for stubborn cases, or for those who are predisposed to pinworm infections. Note that roundworm, tapeworm and hookworm infections are also best treated under the guidance of a professional homeopath.

This study evaluated the effects of homeopathic treatment on control of Haemonchus contortus infection in sheep. Twenty lambs were randomized to three treatments: treated with the homeopathic medicines, Ferrum phosphoricum, Arsenicum album and Calcarea carbonica; treated with a conventional antihelminthic, doramectin, and an untreated control group. Fecal and blood samples were taken from each animal on days 18, 38 and 68 after start of treatment. A significant reduction in number of H. contortus larvae (p<0.01) was observed for animals in the homeopathic treatment group compared to the control group. Fecal egg counts showed negative correlation between haematocrit and haemoglobin concentrations in the homeopathic treatment group (p<0.01); however, the biochemical and immunological parameters showed better correlation, indicating that the homeopathic medicine improved vital functions. Daily weight gain in the homeopathic treatment group was superior to the control and to the antihelminthic groups, 31 and 6.5%, respectively. The cost benefit analysis confirmed that homeopathy group increases economic trend when compared with the other groups.
