How to kill roundworms in humans

Updated June 02, 2017

Trichinosis (roundworm infection) is a parasitic disease caused by contaminated meat. Undercooked meat contains worm larvae, which travels to the intestines after ingestion. The worms spread to tissue and muscle and replicate in the host. The infections are most common in rural areas where meat is poorly preserved.

  1. Obtain anti-parasite medication. This type of treatment only kills roundworm infections in the intestinal phase. If the roundworms have migrated to muscles, this medication is not effective. Name brand anti-parasite medications include albendazole and mebendazole.

  2. Eat coconut. Coconut is a natural remedy since ancient times. A tablespoon of coconut followed by 60ml of castor oil is effective against roundworms.

  3. Eat garlic. Garlic is a common treatment for many diseases including roundworms. Garlic is effective against intestinal roundworms as well as those that have migrated to muscles. The garlic is absorbed and the scent spreads throughout the body, killing roundworms.

  4. Take two tablespoons of papaya juice. Papaya juice mixed with honey and hot water is a powerful treatment against roundworms.

  5. Drink wormwood. Wormwood is a substance that is found in absinthe. Sixteen grams of wormwood is mixed with olive oil as a powerful roundworm killer. It can also be used as an enema for rectal worm infections.
