In general, worms are parasites that may commonly invade the intestinal tract, and uncommonly
invade other parts of the body. There are many types of worms...see list below.
“Parasites are the missing diagnosis in the genesis of many chronic
health problems, including diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and
endocrine system. Most individuals would be truly amazed if they knew
the extraordinarily high number of Americans who are unknowingly
infected by parasites…” |
– Dr. Hermann R. Bueno, Fellow of Royal
Society of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene of London
Listing of the common names of the most prevalent
types of parasites that call the human body home.
Symptoms may vary depending on the worm.

The tapeworm is normally half an inch long, and is usually white/grey in color.
Black worms: These are 10 - 12 inches in length and leave the colon wrapped in 'yellow acid water'. They nest deep in the impacted colon wall.
White worms: They come in all sizes, from tiny pinworms to those that look like spaghetti or angel hair pasta.
Red worms: These look just like earthworms. They exude from the colon wrapped in balls. They can reach up to 6 inches long.
Inch worms: These are thick (pencil size), black and bumpy, and about 2 inches long.
Pin worms: Tiny parasites that wiggle out of the anus cavity. The have the appearance of white rice and are about 3/4 inch long and are thicker than white worms.
Hook worms: Curved parasites about six inches long, and grayish. Infestation is as high as 50% worldwide. Hookworms grip the intestinal wall and suck blood.
Thread worms: Cream-colored parasites as thin as a thread. They often come out by the hundreds.

and mineral deficiencies. Often, there are intestinal symptoms such as: poor digestive symptoms,
gas, burping, fatigue, joint pains, lowered resistance and even mood changes and depression.
Proper elimination of human waste
Avoid walking barefoot on soil that may be contaminated
Avoid eating improperly cooked meat
Worms may actually come out of the anus at night, when in bed, due to the warmth. Thus, especially children, may be checked, while sleeping.
Worms are very contagious. Check all members of household if one has been diagnosed. Be very careful with personal hygiene. Keep toilet seats cleaned well and after every use for several days at beginning of treatment.
For severe infections, use bowel cleanse programs with high colonics or home enemas, for first few weeks.
