Steps You Can Take At Home

Bed linens and garments (especially under garments) of the person infected with pinworms must be washed thoroughly in the hottest water available.

Wash your hands frequently and teach your children to always wash their hands with soap after using the restroom, before eating and when ever they are soiled. Counting to 30 or sing the ABC song while washing hands is a good way to ensure they keep the water on long enough to get their hands clean.

If you have pets or animals teach your children not to allow face licking and to always wash their hands after playing with the dog or cat.

Keep your own and your children's finger nails trimmed short and clean.

Wash fruits and vegetables thoroughly before eating and avoid over ripe fruit.

Avoid constipation by adding fiber and fresh fruits to your diet, parasites multiply quickly in this environment.

Use coconut oil instead of butter or margarine.

Save pumpkin seeds, toast them in the oven and eat them, they really are delicious.

If you suspect most of the family is infected, cleanse every one for six days beginning just before the full moon with a good combination of herbs. Treat yourself and your children monthly for 6 days or as directed with a good herbal combination until you are sure everyone is clear. Weekly maintenance is suggested if you live on a farm or have pets.

Add probiotics to your daily supplements, they help our immune system to better fight off parasites.
