Dracunculiasis or Guinea worm

Dracunculiasis or Guinea worm

Dracunculus Medinensis is a roundworm (nematode), which causes a dangerous disease as dracunculiasis

Second name of dracunculiasis - is guinea worm . In length this worm is one of the longest parasitic worms. The longest worm, which was removed from the human body had a length of 80 centimeters, while the adult males had a length of up to 4 inches. Mature female worms migrate along the subcutaneous tissue, forming painful sores on his way.


Person is infected with by drinking unfiltered water, which contains small crustaceans. After falling into body, the crustaceans die and larvae dracunculiasis are released , which fall into the stomach or abdomen and gnawing their way out of it. Males die after mating, and the females migrate to the subcutaneous tissue, forming blisters that burst free. To ease pain patients foot are placed in the water, but when they contact with water the female produces part of the larvae. After that, the larva enters the body of the crustacean, and after two weeks, the larva can easily get back into the body.

Diagnosis or treatment

There are two types of diagnostic dracunculiasis, the first - wait until the worm will be seen by a clear sign, for example such as purulent blisters on the body. The second type of diagnostic dracunculiasis is diagnosing bioresonance diagnostics such as Deta-Professional or Deta-Pharma.

Treatment can be performed in three ways:

  1. Traditional method of treatment - the winding worm on a rod or wand. This process is very painful and can last for several days, the process is slow in order to avoid a gap worm and toxic substances entering the wound.
  2. Surgery - is effective only if the whole worm is close to the skin surface.
  3. Bioresonance therapy - using devices Deta-AP . They are working on the basis of bio-resonance and today bioresonance therapy is the best way to fight parasites.
