Where the juices and organs of the body are thoroughly healthy,
worms will not appear. Before they can breed, there must be more or
less of failure in the patient's health. This shows us that the cure
for worms is not so much some poisonous substance which will destroy
them, as such an increase of healthy action in the system as will
prevent their development. The bowels must be kept open by suitable
diet as it is most important to avoid Constipation (see). In case of
worms in children, stimulus and help are specially needed by the
mucous membrane or inner lining of the stomach and bowels. To give
this, and at the same time to neutralise and remove waste material from
the membrane, a little vinegar and warm water may be frequently given,
in teaspoonfuls. This is best taken from an hour to half-an-hour before
meals. It is often needful to use some soothing, nourishing substance,
such as liquorice, boiled with a little camomile, taken, say after
meals, while the acid is taken before them: this has an excellent
effect. At the same time, an enema of warm water and vinegar should be
given twice a day. Where Santolina (see) can be procured, its use
will speedily effect a complete cure. Change of air, holiday from
lessons, and any other means of increasing the general health, should
also be utilised.
