Intestinal Parasites In Humans Roundworm and Tapeworm

Parasites in humans are organisms that live on or in an organism of another species, known as the host, from the body of which it obtains its nourishment and protection. These bothersome microbes range in size from tiny, single-celled organisms to worms visible to the naked eye and they can inhabit every organ in the human body. 

You can read about additional and numerous unexpected worms symptoms and parasite symptoms here, plus also view a worm in the brain video and excellent symptoms of parasites in humans video. 

To continue, almost everyone has these nutrient robbing infectious organisms. Human parasites in the body are not reserved just for “others” or just those in developing countries. 

North Americans are also vulnerable to these infections. The World Health Organization (WHO) states that these “unwanted guests” in humans are amongst the top six diseases that are infecting human beings. Internal parasites in the human body are the widespread silent killer of mankind on this planet. 

Believe it or not, human parasites have been inhabiting and negatively affecting mankind for a very long time. In fact, even Jesus Christ talked about ridding worms and old waste from the colon via water enemas.


Following are two colonoscopy videos demonstrating live internal parasites in the human body in which a roundworm and a tapeworm moves around in the human’s intestinal tract. These wriggling images are rather shocking. 

Do not view these if you are the squeamish type. These intestinal worm videos are supplied for those that can’t believe that mankind can really harbor internal parasites in the human body such as roundworms or tapeworms. Remember, these worms have been inhabiting and reeking havoc in the human species for thousands of years.

The large white-yellow intestinal roundworm of humans, Ascaris lumbricoides, is the large intestinal worm familiar to people all over the world. It is pointed on both ends. The World Health Organization reported that about 25% of the world’s population is infected with roundworm. These human roundworms take a share of everything you eat. 

The adult roundworm’s eggs are deposited with human feces in the soil. These new baby worms reside in the eggs. These eggs in the soil are extremely resistant. They can withstand extreme cold and hot weather. Substances that inhibit the growth of infectious microorganisms do not affect these hardy eggs. These eggs reach your digestive system by consumption of soil or food that has been contaminated with feces. 

Dr. David Freedman, Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology at the University of Alabama at Birmingham says this about the human roundworm, “So one of these little eggs, actually it’s a tiny little larvae, tiny little microscopic baby worm inside and when it hits the stomach, the stomach acid just digests down the egg shell and the little worms crawl out and migrate to the lungs where they mature a little more. They’re coughed up and swallowed again and then come to live in the intestines afterwards growing into these very, very large and obvious sizes.” 

The sexually mature female roundworm can lay from 200,000 to 300,000 eggs per day. Females can be well over a foot long, males are smaller. 

The whole process from swallowing the egg to having the mature worms in the intestines takes between two and three months. The worms live, on average, about a year. The roundworm is one of the most common intestinal worms in humans. 

Roundworms have a reputation for wandering, and often do so if the body they are in, the host, is not well or is taking certain medications. Adult roundworms sometimes spontaneously exit the host through the anus, mouth, or even the nose. They are found in the bathtub, in one’s underwear, toilet bowl, in diapers, or even on the pillow after waking up. 

Human Parasites And Worms In Children

Though more human worms exist in children in undeveloped countries, they also exist in children all over the globe. You can watch an unsettling video of the alive human Trichuris trichiura (whipworm) in a child’s colon. In fact, it is an actual intestinal parasites infestation. Fortunately, there is much medical research on worms in children that will hopefully lead to better diagnosis of this invasive organism in the more developed nations.

The human tapeworm absorbs nutrients from its food source from its broad flat surface. The interesting thing about the tapeworm is that it is made of different segments. This “life robbing” organism grows from head to tail just by adding segments to its tail end and it can grow to be 50 feet or more in length. A true wormzilla! 

Dr. David Freedman says, “You’ve never gotten rid of the tapeworm until you’ve gotten rid of the head. So even if someone loses all these segments, or you give some treatment and kill all the segments, but you don’t kill that head of the tapeworm, the head can continue to generate new segments.”

What Can We Do To Prevent These Hanger-Ons?

Your intestines are the ideal breeding ground for these loathsome human parasites to make their home. They love to reside in impacted waste as well as in the linings of colon walls. They rapidly reproduce and have become masters at continuing their species inside the unsuspicious human host. 

So what can you do? 

Understand that it is impossible to avoid getting endoparasites of some form. Also, realize what kind of internal environments these gastrointestinal tract invaders love so you can try to be an inhospitable host. 

Proper disposal of body wastes, attention to good sanitation, wearing shoes where the soil is infested, as some worms can penetrate the intact skin in the bare feet, will best prevent this infestation from occurring. Also, decrease your chance of getting worms by such simple measures as washing your produce thoroughly, washing your hands well (also under the fingernails) before preparing or eating food, after changing a diaper and after using the toilet. Finally, learn how to purge these unwanted inhabitants from your body. 

A healthy immune system and body including a well functioning and clean intestinal tract can certainly decrease the chances of these life compromising organisms making their homes within you. 

Colon Cleansing Helps Purify Intestinal Tract

Colon cleansing with the herbal DrNatura Colonix cleansing program will reduce the human waste, mucous and toxins that have built up in your intestines. This cleaner internal environment makes it more difficult for them to take hold when the host is not providing them with an optimal environment for them to feed – as they love to feed on old impacted human waste. 

Yes, it is very important to regularly give attention to cleaning out your intestines. DrNatura’s Colonix advanced internal cleansing program herbs help detoxify the entire body, including the colon. 

When there is less constipation, old fecal matter has been passed, transit times are faster, and the energy zapping organisms have less to feed on. They will not be as pleased with this type of host and will not thrive as much when their “food source” has been decreased. Hopefully, they will move on out with the good elimination in place. The healthier intestinal environment will lessen your chances of these silent killer organisms taking hold and reinfecting your body. 

I am definitely happy for the existence of the excellent colon cleanse program, Colonix by DrNatura, which cleans out the colon making it less hospitable for the parasites and worms. Thousands of people are overwhelmingly grateful that those organisms – both visible and non visible to the human eye – have been cleansed from their bodies with the help of the life renewing Colonix colon cleanse program. 

Part of the Colonix colon cleanse program consists of taking Paranil herbal capsules that contain herbs that those parasites don’t care for. I really like the Paranil, DrNatura’s cleansing and detoxing herbal capsules. The detoxifying herbs in the Paranil capsules are safe and non toxic. 

One of my grateful friends thankfully passed a 13 inch worm while doing the Colonix cleanse.

DrNatura’s Paranil herbal capsules contain cleansing and purifying herbs. My shocked friend could never have imagined that her body was a host to this gross worm, nor did she have specific worms symptoms that would cause her to think she had this worm inside her. Better out than in! 

Passing worms and other parasites is quite common while cleansing the colon. Some people even save their worms in a jar as a reminder of what was in them! 

While I did the Colonix program cleanse, I thought, oh my gosh, that I would wake up and be surrounded by worms in my bed or something. But as the herbal colon cleanse went on and I was feeling so much better, I did not give this much thought. If I would have visibly seen the exiting of human worms, I think I just would have celebrated their departure!
