The parasites that form inside the gastrointestinal tract are known as intestinal worms. They cling on the intestinal wall and they affect both animals and humans. The most common types of intestinal worms affecting the human beings are the tapeworm, the whipworm, the pinworm and the roundworm. These parasites enter the organism through skin, nose, mosquitoes and other transmitting agents, contaminated water and food and sexual contact. Other causes might be eating undercooked or raw meat, a weak immune system or poor hygiene. The majority of people who have intestinal worms live in sub-tropical and tropical areas. However, children and adults from other parts of the world can be affected.
The most common symptoms associated with intestinal worms are nausea, stomach pain, fever, gas, weight loss, dysentery, weakness, bad breath, anemia, feelings of hunger, rectum itching, restless sleep, nutritional disorders and pain in the legs. Intestinal worms can be cured with over-the-counter medicines, but you can also make use of natural treatments to get rid of them.

After taking the mixture, you can eat a kiwi or a banana as breakfast, because they have laxative effects.
