The gut as a habitat Endoparasites or internal parasites live inside the host. Depending on their localization, they are divided into blood, tissue or intestinal parasites.

A certain "basic equipment" of parasites is given to the puppies by the mother - bitches pass them on purposefully with their mother's milk in order to train the puppies' immune system. Everyone has to think for themselves why nature arranged it that way. It should make us think that in developing countries with low hygiene standards and high parasite burden, diseases such as neurodermatitis, asthma and allergies are almost unknown. Allergists use the pig whipworm in humans to treat chronic intestinal inflammation and food allergies. No, we do not want to put the intestinal parasites under nature protection. But vermifuges should not be used indiscriminately. They put a strain on the liver and intestinal flora. If we have to fight parasites, we should not choose the intervals too short and use the natural possibilities for stabilizing the intestinal environment in order to strengthen the body's immune response to parasites.
