Worms In The Lungs

Worried About Worms In The Lungs...
What do you know about worms in the lungs?
My grandson has asthma. Last night he coughed up mucus and there looks like a big worm in it.
We took him to the doctor today and the Dr. said that he has never seen anything like it. He sent it to to the lab.
We are worried sick. My grandson is 10 years old and I'm trying to keep him from seeing my concerns. Please help me if you can.
By the way, my grandson was in the Dominican Republic with his family about 1 year ago.
Hi Ms. Bonnie,
I understand your concerns regarding your grandson having worms in the lungs. Although it is so unpleasant, coughing up worms is not as uncommon as you might think.
What your grandson is experiencing is probably ascariasis. Ascariasis is a roundworm infection that is easy to get from drinking water or food that has been contaminated by the parasite eggs.
Poor sanitary conditions can lead to eggs in the soil that are then transferred to the hands and mouth without realizing it.
I know it sounds horrid, but the eggs hatch in the intestines and then grow and travel throughout the body.
Your doctor will probably prescribe some type of anti-parasitic medication.
If you prefer a safer natural remedy, you can use antiparasitic herbs to help your grandson cleanse his body of the parasites. Herbal Fiberblend
and Para 90
are both good quality supplements that can be used for this purpose.
I would also give him probiotics, like Florafood
, to help build up the good bacteria in his system. I would use probiotics whether you use the prescription or natural parasite cleansing treatment. Probiotics are going to be essential regardless.
Incidentally, if your grandson does a good natural herbal cleanse, he may find that it helps improve his asthma condition as a beneficial side effect.
I hope this information about ascariasis roundworm infection gives you some comfort. There's no reason why your grandson can't get rid of the worms in the lungs and everywhere else in his body without too much difficulty. It just takes some consistent use of cleansing herbs and immune building probiotics.
Let us know what the doctor recommended and how your grandson progresses.
