These are two common occurring parasites found in people with irritable bowel syndrome. In addition to these parasites candida often accompanies these to a lesser degree. This condition is called dysbiosis.
Orthodox medicine has treated this type of imbalance by prescribing Flagyl and more recently by a triple cocktail of antibiotics. This type of treatment does not always consider the collateral damage to the gut mucosa membranes of the individual with this disorder.
Symptoms of Blastocystis and Dientomeoba fragilis can include –
Mood Swings and Depression
Cravings for fried foods
Disturbed sleep patterns
Leaky gut syndrome
Auto immune disorders
Constipation or diarrhoea
Vision problems and floaters in vision field
Low iron stores
Dark circles under eyes
Explosive bowel motions
Fatty liver syndrome
Often poor immunity and susceptibility to other viruses and bacterial infections such as golden staph can occur due to an already overburdened immune system.
Orthodox testing of this form of dysbiosis is done through “poo tests” whereby the patient’s faecal matter is scrutinized. This method is not always accurate and may need to be done multiple times at great expense before a proper assessment is attained.
In recent years new tests have been devised by the Boston Medical Pathology Center, USA, whereby DNA markers identifying the endotoxin produced by these parasites can be seen in a drop of dried blood.
New non antibiotic treatments using Peruvian Rainforest Herbs have proven effective in the disruption of the lifecycle/reproductive cycle of these parasites leading to their eradication from the host.
