Got a Headache? You May Have a Parasite in Your Brain

Without proper and adequate brain function, we are merely shells of the people that we can be. One of the biggest and most rapid diseases that can affect the brain’s ability to function at 100 percent are parasites. These parasites can enter the body in a number of different ways, but once inside, they can do a heck of a lot of damage. A growing concern among many in the medical field is the amount of parasites and cases of brain issues that come with eating certain popular foods.


A condition known as Neurocysticercosis is an infection of the human central nervous system. This occurs most frequently from the ingestion of a parasite that lives on pork. Tapeworms, as they are often refereed to as, is the number one cause of epilepsy in the world. This common parasite of the human brain causes massive seizures, and the pork parasites themselves actually trigger brain tumors, cause aneurisms and activate the onset of mental health issues like depression.

These pork tapeworms present themselves as chronic headaches in their early stages of entering the brain. Sometimes major issues are not found because extensive work or imaging on the brain isnt done, the pain felt is attributed to migraines or tension headaches, this is even true if the parasite is no longer living when inside the brain. When the brain and body work together to extract the calcified tapeworm, particles of the remains are released into the brain and cause inflammation that also contributes to headaches.

The only sure fire way to prevent any contact whatsoever with a pork tapeworm is to cut it out of your diet for good. Now, this is asking a lot, so the second alternative is to make sure that any pork being cooked, is done so extremely well. Pig carcases have been found to carry the most parasites, cooking them on low heat for two or more hours will ensure a worm free meal and a healthier brain and body.
