Papaya seeds for parasites

We've heard from someone that you should eat papaya seeds every now and then to protect against parasites when traveling in countries such as Peru, and in case you have some, for expelling them. Is this true?

If so, what is a good dosage for a thorough cleanup, a teaspoon of seeds each day or more? And do the seeds have any unwanted side effects?
