A person often does not even suspect that parasites have settled in his body next to the internal organs. In most cases, we do not pay attention to the slight indisposition, writing it off on excessive physical exertion and mental activity.
Helminths can enter the body not only through contaminated hands or food. Pathogens penetrate through raw water, contact with domestic animals. That is why it is so important to listen to the signals of your body, because it is the gastrointestinal tract and the immune system that are the first to get hit by a parasitic shock.
Most often, pathogenic microorganisms settle in the intestine. But there are such types of parasites that actively reproduce in the lungs, liver, muscle tissue. In addition to general malaise and a sharp decline in immune protection, a person then experiences a number of other symptoms:
