Also, you must remember that if one member of the family has pinworms, the entire family has to be treated for them. So all the methods listed below have to be followed by all members of the family. Bathe with Epsom salts and hot water; as hot as you can stand it. This is supposed to be an effective way of killing any and all germs.  The most efficient things to consume to combat intestinal parasites are watermelon, papaya and pumpkin seeds, all of which contain enzymes that will help finish any worms in the body. A glass of hot milk with a teaspoon of turmeric powder added to it is a highly effective way of treating the body from within. Turmeric powder is an antiseptic which helps to heal the insides. A glass of hot milk with a teaspoon of cinnamon powder is also believed to be an effective deterrent in keeping germs at bay.
