Symptoms of Intestinal Parasites Related to Chronic Fatigue, Pain and Illness
Parasites cause chronic fatigue and pains in many ways.
- the release of harmful toxic substances by the parasites, and the body working overtime to counter the ill effects of such harmful substances exhaust and deplete the body on physical, mental, and emotional levels.
- intestinal parasites leech protein, carbohydrates, fats, and vitamins, draining the body of both nutrients and energy and weakening the immune system
- some intestinal parasites move through the body and cyst themselves in joint fluids or muscles, causing pain, aching and irritation. Many people mistake such joint paints for arthritis.
- the release of toxic substances by intestinal parasites and the counter-action by the body’s immunity system, or a weakened immunity system can lead to pain in the stomach or navel area, back, thighs or shoulder region.
The chronic fatigue and pain manifests as flu-like symptoms, exhaustion, apathy, depression, listlessness, difficulty in concentration, forgetfulness, and impaired cognitive ability. People affected by intestinal parasites also suffer from extreme fatigue after very little physical activity.
The presence of parasites makes the body produce immunoglobulin A, a defender against foreign substances. Over time, the body’s stock of immunoglobulin A gets exhausted, leaving the body susceptible to attacks from bacteria, yeast, fungus, virus, and other foreign invaders, causing a variety of illness such as fever, cough, colds, running noses, chronic sinus, ear infections, and the like.
