We know this is going to sound like one of those prescription drug commercials that scares the shit out of you because of all the possible side effects, but just to cover the bases let's throw out all of the symptoms you could experience if you have intestinal parasites. You could experience any or all of the following: constipation, diharrhea, gas and bloating, irritable bowels, joint & muscle aches, anemia, skin conditions like rashes, allergies to certain foods, lumpy tumors in your abdomen, nervous ticks, sleep deprivation, abnormal grinding of your teeth, and chronic fatigue.
While all of these symptoms are serious, diharrhea is especially dangerous in any survival situation because it dehydrates you and the number 1 rule of survival is to stay hydrated.
While proper hygiene and food preparation are always the first lines of defense towards these nasty critters, here are some on-the-go remedies that will definitely change your intestinal environment long enough to emancipate yourself.
- Mix 4 tablespoons of salt with a quart of water and drink it down like a champ. We do not recommend repeating this treatment. You will thank us later after you try it the first time.
- Drink 2 tablespoons of kerosene. This can be repeated every 48 hours until you kill the parasite or you decide to smoke a cigarette. Please check out our highly informative burn treatment article here if you choose the latter.
- Eat as many hot peppers as you can get your hands on. A steady diet of these will not only kill your tastebuds, but those pesky worms as well.
