Nowadays, look is very often the determinant of success both in personal and professional life. Slim people are better perceived by the society which put more trust in them. That is why so much interest is devoted to all treatments improving appearance.
These treatments also include slimming diets. New methods gaining popularity are repetitively created. One of the latest trends in the field of losing weight is the tapeworm diet, which gained popularity in the 1930s of the twentieth century and now has its renascence.
Assumptions of this diet are very simple – lose as much as possible in the shortest period of time without denying yourself the pleasure that comes from food. Equally simple is the whole “weight loss”. The one has to swallow a capsule containing live tapeworm larvae once a day for a period of several days. Soon after starting the treatment, the tapeworm develops in the host’s body and that’s when it comes to rapid weight loss in a person using this treatment. Once you reach your dream weight you only have to swallow a pill that kills tapeworm and enjoy your dream figure.
Manufacturers assure that the capsules contain only selected in laboratory conditions unarmed tapeworm larvae and the capsules removing tapeworm from the body are 100 % effective. Such are the promises of manufacturers and distributors of these measures but what are the facts?
Capsules with tapeworm larvae are produced mainly in China. The whole process of breeding and selection of larvae and capsule production is not supervised or controlled by the institution or agency for medicines. That is why people who buy this product have no guarantee that the larvae contained in the capsules are unarmed tapeworm larvae.
There are also no information about the process of breeding larvae. The sale of capsules is done primarily via the Internet which also hinders any control of the whole dealing. Trying to remove tapeworms from the body is not as easy as described by the manufacturer. The treatment procedure is long, difficult, and not without troublesome side effects.
The loss of weight is not the only effect of the ‘tapeworms weight loss treatment’. People infected with tapeworm also complain about nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, chronic fatigue. They are diagnosed with avitaminosis and anemia. If we add the possible complications and side effects of the treatment it is clear that the tapeworm diet is a simple way not only to lose health, but also life.
The tapeworm diet is not as easy and pleasant way to lose extra pounds, as the manufacturers advertise. It is fast and fairly expensive ( a pack of capsules on the network reaches a price of 1.5 to 2 thousand zlotych) way to lose health or even life. Therefore, before starting this treatment ask yourself whether your perfect figure is worth such a devotion?
