In our hygienic, sanitised and deodorized society it is unpleasant the think that we may be carrying parasites around. And yet wherever there is an opportunity in the natural world, some little beastie is ready to move in and make a home.

It is not difficult to catch parasites of one sort or another from restaurants where their is questionable hygiene, from overseas where water may not be well purified, even from your children, who has been exposed are school or playgrounds, or from your pets.

For many people, parasites may do little harm and there are no discernible symptoms. If you find that your bloating symptoms are not alleviated by other measures, it is always wise to think about the possibility of a parasite infestation.

Parasites often can cause bloating, along with other digestive symptoms, including some, but not necessarily all, of the following: gas, constipation, diarrhoea, abdominal cramps, allergies, unexplained weight loss, anal itching, IBS, anaemia, joint and muscle aches,  immune problems and bloody stools. Any symptoms you experience may not be consistent, as they can fluctuate during the life cycle of the parasite.

It is generally assumed that with out improved standard of living the problem of parasitic infection has been eliminated, but this is not the case. As late the 1940s many families, especially farm families, would not only worm their animals periodically, they also worm themselves.

It was probably with great sense of a relief that this practice was abandoned as the concoctions used, such as sulphur and molasses, were pretty unpleasant. These days preparations come in encapsulated forms, which are easy to take.

If you do find that you have parasites, it is wise to have the whole family tested and treated. It is not natural for carries to be symptoms free, which means they can reinfect those with whom they live at close quarters.
