Dr Oz: Tapeworms, Ascarid & Whipworms

Dr Oz did a segment on Parasites in your own backyard.  He did a similar show a while ago, and you can read the recap of it here: Dr. Oz: Parasitic Worms.  When parasites like Tapeworms, Ascarid and Whipworms get into your body, they can feed off of you for years to come.  Could you have a parasite i n your body and not even k now it?  Apparently, a lot of us do!

Dr Oz: Ascarid Symptoms

Doctor Oz’s first parasite was the Ascarid, which is most commonly found in dogs, cats and racoons.  If any of these animals Dr Oz Whipworms & Crohn's Diseasedefaecate in your yard or garden, and then you ingest the eggs that are passed through in their feces, you can wonder around with Ascarid larvae in your body.  In fact, 10% of the country has been exposed to Ascarid worms.  If you have a heavy infection of Ascarid Worms, you can get the following symptoms:

1.  A red rash that itches and is irritating

2.  Wheezing or Asthma-like symptoms

3.  Neurological issues

Children can even die from Ascarid infections, especially the kind caused by Racoon’s feces.  This is also another reason why it is always worth de-worming your dogs!

Dr Oz: Tapeworms Cause Swiss Cheese Brain

Dr Oz’s next parasite was a Tapeworm, which you can often get from eating undercooked pork, especially in third world countries.  You could have a large Tapeworm in your intestine and not even know it, because you do not always have symptoms.  Tapeworms can grow up to 20′ in length inside of your body.  If you do not wash your hands when you are in your backyard at a bbq, and you toss a salad with your hands, then you could infect people with larvae stages of Tapeworm.

Doctor Oz showed what happens when you get a tapeworm inside of you.  It goes into your gut and burrows itself in your intestine where it sucks out your nutrients as it grows longer and longer.  Tapeworms often make you lose weight, and if you do not catch them soon enough, your brain can eventually turn into “swiss cheese” with lots of holes.  So please be careful to make sure that you only eat pork that is fully cooked, especially in places like Mexico.

Dr Oz: Whipworms Cure Crohn’s Disease & Inflammatory Bowel Disease

Dr Oz’s final parasite was Whipworms, which exist in the rural South in America (places like Kentucky and Louisiana).  When you have a heavy infection of Whipworms, you can get cramping, heavy diarrhea and even a prolapsed rectum.  Doctor Oz said that this is another reason that it is crucial to wash your fruits and vegetables well before eating them and to only garden with gloves on.  The interesting thing about Whipworms is that they may have a medicinal use.  It turns out the Whipworms may help to treat people with Crohn’s Disease and Inflammatory Bowel Disease.  People from parts of the world where they often have these “wormy” infections tend to have less Crohn’s Disease and Inflammatory Bowel Disease.  Dr Oz said that research is being conducted in this area.

    It’s great to hear that there is something to help him.Great Show !!!

    A few years ago, I developed all the symptoms of the Ascaris worm. At the time I was doing alot of gardening daily/nightly and no Doctor could figure out what was wrong with me.
    I do not garden anymore and have no more symptoms, but I wonder if i am infected w/ the worm and if so, how do I get rid of it or test to find out.
    thank you.

  4. You go to the doc & submit a stool specimen & they can tell if you get eggs or worms in your poop.

  5. i have been dealing with some type of parsite for around 6 months now white long worms ive taken vermox 2 tmes took a parasite cleanse and been to doctors not much is helping this parasite is killing me slowlyi feel i have a lot of pain mostly in my rite side mds here dont no much about parasite they keep thinking its pin worms pin worms would not me feel pain only in my rite side ive had 2 stool samples they cant find the worm but wen i go to bathroom its there

  6. I have Crohn’s disease and would love to try Whipworms. I have done lots of research and can see the benefits compared to other drugs. Hopefully with more research they will soon be available for patient use.

  7. Hi all, I hope I can get help from you all I’m from South Africa, I have been having signs that I believe reflects parasite infection and they include:
    Joints Pain
    Muscle Pain and weaken ( Shown on CBC test)
    Bleeding gums
    Nodes Pain
    Blood flow problems
    Electric wave in my head
    Stinging pain in my stomach and heart recently and the list to on and on
    By the look of things Doctors this side do not have any idea what is going on but they also do not want to take my story. I have used D-Worm and Vermox but signs keep on coming back.

  8. hi,can you tell me in which episode of Dr.Oz’s show has he talked about Crohn’s disease??

  9. I was in a clinical study for TSO and it put me in remission for 10 years! My UC started flaring last year. Hurry up and get this approved!!!

  10. The best dewormer is Nitazoxanide, this a strong dewormer, I use it twice a year, specially because I have a dog. I take nitazoxanide 500 mgs. 1 tablet every 12 hrs. with meals for 3 days. After 3 weeks you take another dose. Same every 6 months.
