Ginger with its original pungent taste is familiar to many as a hot seasoning. However, ginger root also has a wide range of medicinal uses.
Increasingly, it is recommended as an antiviral, tonic, bactericidal and antioxidant agent. It is also effective against some parasites.
This article details the use of ginger in the fight against parasites. Whether the plant really helps from worms, we find out further.
Does it help with worms?
For centuries, people have consumed bitter and spicy foods to get rid of parasites. Traditionally, decoctions of wormwood, tansy, cloves, garlic juice were used as anthelmintic agents, and spices, including ginger root, became widespread in Central Asia. Gingerol, a chemical compound of plant origin, is responsible for its peculiar taste. Also the antiparasitic effect of ginger is due to the presence of vanillic acid, ciniol and geraniol.
What helminths is it used against?
The list of organisms parasitizing on humans is very extensive. Ginger, on the other hand, acts only on parasites that inhabit the gastrointestinal tract, mainly tapeworms (nematodes).
On some forms of protozoa and organisms parasitizing on the skin and tissues of organs, ginger has no effect.
Indications and contraindications for use
The indication for the use of ginger is:
- Living in areas unfavorable from the point of view of the epidemiological situation.
- Eating raw or lightly salted fish.
- Eating lard or meat with a low to medium degree of roasting.
- Eating food in places that make you doubt hygiene.
- Supportive therapy for helminthic invasion after treatment with antiparasitic drugs.
A contraindication to ginger treatment is:
- Stomach or duodenal ulcer.
- Diseases of the liver and gallbladder.
- Hemophilia and other blood clotting disorders.
- Period of menstruation.
- Pregnancy and breastfeeding.
- Children under 5 years of age.
- Allergy to ginger and other ingredients.
- Recent surgical interventions on the gastrointestinal tract.
- Invasion by parasites with severe intoxication.
Step by step instructions on how to use the plant
Do not start treatment with ginger without consulting a therapist or infectious disease specialist.... Even if you literally saw and identified the parasite with your own eyes, it would be wise to see a doctor. The fact is that ginger acts only on immature nematodes. That is, literally, it prevents them from developing to a sexually mature stage. Therefore, the best solution is to take ginger prophylactically or as a supportive therapy after the prescribed competent treatment.
Often, antiparasitic drugs must be taken two or three times in order to first destroy the adults, and then a new colony that has developed from possibly preserved cysts and eggs.
Here, ginger will come in handy, suppressing the development of these young individuals. For sexually mature parasites, ginger, although not entirely harmless, is still ineffective.
Taking ginger can provoke the migration of surviving parasites from the intestinal lumen into organ tissuefrom where it will be much more difficult to expel them.
