Stomach Worms - Home Remedy

Dear All,   We have a 4yrs old daughter. Since past 3-4months she is eating a lot (hungry almost every 30mns). Initially we were happy that now she is eating well :) and now its concerning. Surfing for information indicates its a sign of worms in the stomach. I believe there could be several kids who have managed to come out of a similar situation with help of their parents. So... any good medicine or a good home remedy? FYI we are outside India hence finding our Indian herbs (e. g. Tulsi, etc) is challenging.   Thanks in advance!

Do you have pets at your home? No pets, though my daughter loves dogs and she does play with them whenever she sees one. Does she ask for food every 30mins or so and eats her meals well? Yes! She does eat her meals well and keep asking for more to eat in short time. I found below on the internet and will try one before I go for a medicine. • Give 1 cup of grated Carrot in the morning 1 hour before breakfast for 4 to 5 days. • Take 1 tablespoon of raw Papaya juice mixed with 1 teaspoon of honey (shahad) and give this to the child in the morning on an empty stomach. This should be followed by a glass of warm milk mixed with 1 teaspoon of Castor oil. Do this for atleast 2 days. • Make the child to eat a small piece of Jaggery (gudha) after each meal. • Give a piece of Garlic (lehsun) clove a day until the worms are removed. • Grind a fresh coconut finely and mix it directly into some milk or boil it with milk. Give this decoction to the child for about four times in a day. • Take a handful of Pomegranate (anar) leaves, crush them and boil with a glass of milk. Drink half of it early in the morning on an empty stomach and the rest after two hours.

Dear Pritesh, do you have pets at your home? If yes, then it is recommended to give your daughter a dose of a de-worming medicine once a year. Does she ask for food every 30mins or so and eats her meals well? It could have become a habit. You try and cut down on frequent snacking and ensure that she gets two decent snacks and three meals and observe her appetite then. You may have a read of the following blog on tips on snacking. here is the link https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/let-your-child-snack-healthy/402 If you still suspect it to be stomach worms, then I suggest you speak to the pediatrician and get a prescription for a de-worming medicine. The medicines are usually taken at a gap of 15 days and do not have any side effects. But I urge you to take a prescription medication. I am not aware of any home remedies for treating worms, sorry. Hope this helps.
