Ted from Bangkok, Thailand replies: "Your observation on this link of acid reflux with blastocytis hominis appears to be related. Blastocystis hominis is due to eating contaminated, food particularly when you eat out, where sanitary conditions are obviously less controlled than home cooked food. Infections occur due to feces much similar like the e.coli found in meats. The common symptoms for eating hominis which you described is a diarrhea. I think this blastocystis hominis, to be a new class of microbes all its own known as Blastocysteaas class. It is neither a fungus, or a yeast, I prefer to think of it as a parasites. As to your questions of whether blastocystis hominis, can be the cause of acid reflux the answer is yes, and this is one reason why acid reflux formula (baking soda) works so well. The reason why is that this organism is peculiarly sensitive fo oxygen, and I suspect it is sensitive to borax as most parasites I know seems to have this pattern. In event where a cause is known, usually a remedy is fairly straightforward. The acid reflux formula for this is alkalization, where I think, under this cause a lime and baking soda, may work better as citrates are generally more effective in alkalization and increasing the oxygen content in the body. Alkalization simply drives out carbon dioxide easier as carbonic acid (CO2 in water) are neutralized by alkalization by holding less of it. The other additional remedies that increase oxygen to the body appears to adding 3-6 drops of 3% Hydrogen-Peroxid to all glass of drinking water, during every meal, or on empty stomach. By increasing oxygen this way to the intestines, the number of this blastocystis hominis is reduced.
Blatocystis is an interesting one in that it secretes protease that breaks down your body's antibiodies such as immunoglubulin A (IgA). The immunoglubulin A is important one since it prevents the growth of harmful microorganisms in the body by neutralizing micorbial toxins, and this may also lead to another conditions such as eczema, boils and other sickness caused by the breakdown of the body's immune system, especially allergies and skin breakouts (toxins from bacteria creates this if the body does not have IgA to neutralize the harmful toxins). As a result, if the cause of acid reflux is hominis, then I know that taking any protease, digestive enzymes (bromelain) for example would not help. It would make my conditions worsen with the acid reflux. What hominis does it actually creates some kind of enzymes that digests your immune system, so obviously I wouldn't try to take either acid forming supplements (digestive enzymes, cranberry juice, etc.) to treat the hominis, as the body is already in a state of digesting myself! Hominis would be one issue that can be causing hiatal hernia, and other immune issues that is relevant to acid reflux. So if immune issues, hiatal hernia, I think hominis is implicated. Certain other supplements that increases the body of oxygen besides the hydrogen peroxide is the 10% sodium chlorite 10% adding 3-5 drops per glass of water. Those can kill them too, but I am old fashion and prefer to give the hydrogen peroxide a try first before using the sodium chlorite, as this allows better oxygen increase, but they are a bit harder to find.
What can I do in killing these organism? For one thing, I won't try antibiotics its already over prescribed and it tends to be acid forming, and thus makes acid reflux worse, indirectly increasing the hominis as acid forming antibiotics lowers the body's oxygen levels. Perhaps the simplest way to reduce blastocytis hominis is drinking strong green tea (no sugar, no fructose, no fruit juice, no milk) can also reduce the number of colonies by the actions of tannins that tends to kill the hominis proteins by denaturing them. Thereafter, drinking water with a couple of hydrogen peroxide added with 1/2 teaspoon baking soda with one whole freshly squeezed lime (8 teaspoon) in 1/2 glass of water taken 2 times a day, once in the morning and once before bedtime. Eating foods with some Sea Salt added (NEVER COMMON table salt !) will reduce the colonies by salinization, much like salted meats. Bacterial colonies simply can't grow in Sea Salt , which is why hominis are so few in seawaters. Hominis exist more on the land than in the sea, land feces there is more of it tan those in seawater. If this were not true, than our fishes would get acid reflux (LOL)! Sea Salt in my opinion along with oxygen is the world's oldest form on antibiotics and will continue to work just as well against them. Humic acid added to food can also reduce the hominis survivability as the tannin components are deadly to them. Perhaps one day, as humic acid are more available, those may be of good potentials against the hominis, at least some farmers are doing it already by mixing them with manure or fertilizer to reduce the number of harmful bacteria found in feces before the use in plants.
The lists you mentioned for treatment appears to be of antiviral in nature (e.g. Wormwood , olive leaf extract), or digestives (bromelain, cranberry) or probiotics. The problem about those in my opinion is that it does not directly deal with hominis' Achilles heels, which time and time again, happens to be increasing the level of oxygen in the body, usually by alkalization (baking soda), or drops of hydrogen peroxide, or salinization (which is the simplest and one of the world's oldest antibiotics). Probiotics only works if the intestines' pH are alkaline friendly, otherwise they will be digested themselves by the enzymes created by the hominis. If I treat the hominis as a parasites, then I might consider adding a pinch of borax to my drinking water to reduce that. No doubt, black hull walnut tincture might rid of parasites, but this appears to be a lot smaller and oxygen and borax I think are much more sensitive and somewhat more directed against the hominis. Because of such sensitivity of oxygen, Colloidal Silver (or Colloidal Silver oxide), taken 2 times a day 1 tablespoon may be effective against hominis directly, ESPECIALLY since Colloidal Silver is both poorly absorbed (which is good since it is found in our intestinal tract), as well as silver's strong affinity to oxygen. To make a colloidal silver into a colloidal silver oxide, just add 1 drops 3% hydrogen peroxide to the bottle. Those should be more than enough to create the colloidal silver oxide.
So in my opinion getting rid of hominis by use of increasing oxygen, sea salt, green tea, colloidal silver and alkalization in general seems to be a more viable means."
