    MARK ROSAL – HEALTH HISTORY/ AND CURRENT HEALTH CONDITION


    In 1974, when I was 19 I traveled overland to India and when I returned had ongoing night sweats, but was never checked or diagnosed for parasites. In my early 20’s, I spent 6 months in Mexico with no clear effects. In my late 20’s, I worked in a greenhouse where I was exposed to many toxic chemicals . At that time my sense of smell diminished and I began to have digestive difficulties. In 1990 I moved to the okanagan valley in British Columbia , Canada . The Okanagan valley is fruit growing area and there is a lot of pesticide spraying. Soon after I arrived in the Okanagan I had an extensive series of vaccinations in preparation for a trip to Asia. It was a this time that noticed a type of nausea that I had not ever experienced .

    Things remained stable until I returned from a year long trip to Asia. At that time I was diagnosed with parasites. The names of these parasites were entamoeba hystolitica, entamoeba hartmanni, chilomastix mesnili,endolimax nana, ascaris lumbricoides,entamoeba coli, and blastocystis. Through a variety of treatments most of the parasites were eliminated. At this time I do not have any parasites according to repeated stool tests. The last two parasites that I had were blastocystis which then left and was followed by dientamoeba fragilis.My wife has not been tested in the last few years but she took the same treatments I have to rid ourselves of parasites, and at one time had both blastocystis and dientamoeba fragilis Through out this time my wife was asymptomatic but I was not.Although the parasites are no longer present in my system according to the stool tests- which I am not sure I completely trust, after reading how smart parasites can be in terms of hiding in the body- still I experience similar symptoms that were present when I had the parasites. Of course the parasites may have never been the problem , but I felt that the research I did indicated it was a strong possibility and until they were eliminated I felt I had to focus on them as being the cause of my symptoms.

    The nausea problems have been ongoing for the last 16 years .This has happened despite my efforts which have included completely stopping drinking alcohol, eating sugar, or drinking coffee, for the last three and a half years-although for the last two years I have returned to coffee and alochol and it seems to have no effect on the nausea may actually improve it at times. For long periods of time I ate a diet that was very restrictive and high in raw veggies, and fruits and at time I have modified this diet to be low carbohydrates and at times for long periods not eating any fruit and little grains or wheat and I have not seen the type of results that would lead me to believe that diet could really this could be any sort of solution. At the best I get a day or two once in a while where there is no symptoms , otherwise I have what I would call nausea attacks of varying intensity daily.

    I am able to function , which for me includes – responsibility in raising 3 children ages 14, 10 and 8.. The ten year old is mentally challenged due to a chromosome abnormality so this presents a level of work that exceeds what one would have to do for a regular child of this age. I also run my own growing business and supporting my wife who is also runs her own quite successful business. I put in these details to address the issue of possible psychological depression. It is one that I have considered as there is a history of depression in my family , however at this time I do not accept that as a diagnosis simply because of the random quality of the nausea attacks and the fact that I really do not exhibit any of the classic signs of depression- I may be a bit manic- sort of speedy, and certainly this illness has caused depression- being sick all the time can really get to a guy.

    However, In general my health is good. I exercise approximately 3 times per week, doing a mixture of yoga, walking and outdoor work. I am approximately 5ft 10 inches tall and weigh about 175 lbs and am 52 years old. I few colds and nothing of a serious nature. I have a tendency to get headaches, but even they only come on average 1 time per month.

    The thing that seems to be the most unusual about my health is that there is some sort of pain cycle which is on going. Essentially, , if I am not nauseous some other area of my body will seem to be experiencing pain, whether it be a headache, severe back pains , even a cold. It is this part of my health picture which makes me aware there is a psychological component to this situation, but what role it plays is unclear. What is clear is the nausea feels to me like is of an organic origin, and is clearly the dominant health issue.

    NAUSEA- DEscr*iptION
    The nausea I experience comes in various ways most times it follows a bowl movement, and often it is the 2nd or third bm of the day, which can be quite a minimal amount formed of small almost diarrhea like pieces. It also comes passing of gas or internal burping, and sometimes it seems to just come out of nowhere. I call it nausea , but I should clarify what that means. To me nausea mean a general feeling of sickness, loss of appetite, and a sense of being poisoned. The pain many times seems to centre in the solar plexus but radiates to other areas I feel it in my extremities arms and legs and face- if I push on the solar plexus many times I can feel a soreness in that area. Many times my appetite is affected, food almost repulses me. When I am in this state, I feel irritable, sometime I feel like I want to get out of my skin, and making decisions is extremely difficult. I become short tempered, and each task I do takes a tremendous amount of effort. I feel nervous about what lies ahead, and wonder if I will have some sort of breakdown . Even having a conversation is not pleasant. I feel paranoid will try to avoid contact with people and doing things. It is very hard to remain positive at the moments . At times I feel mentally cloudy as if I am in an altered state somewhat outside of the normal rhythm of life, like I have smoked marijuana. This feeling can be part of the nausea and body pain or can appear on its’ own with no pain, but eventually the pain will follow . The very strange thing about this nausea I do experience it differently almost every time, in other words, sometimes it starts as a lightheaded altered state and moves towards pain, other times it begins as pain, which sometimes is very sharp almost as if I am being stuck with a knife , I want to bend over and go into a fetal type position At times this paint seems to be focused in a particular area of my body, and other times the pain is more diffuse, just a general ache,but I feel it , as if someone is pinching me deep inside There seems to be no correlation between the nausea attacks and what type of day I am having – eg. whether I am under stress . It can last from 30 minutes to 2 days. The average is 6-8 hours lately in the last few months it seems the attacks last longer but are slightly milder in their intensity There seems to be no specific time that the nausea comes however it is more prevalent in the earlier part of the day , and overall the evenings seem to be better but at times that can reverse, eg –day
    is fine but I go to the bathroom in the evening and am sick all night.
    Things that may affects symptoms-make them worse
    Apples
    Cherrios, rice crispies, a number of cereals
    Brazil nut
    Lentils
    Some baked goodsIce cream
    Some cheeses-fruilano/swiss cheese
    Processed meats-hot dogs,luncheon meats
    Possibly pickled food
    High level of exercise-/sweating/ running

     
    RELATED HEALTH ISSUES
    There seems to be a pain pattern eg, if I am not nauseous, then I have a headache, if there is no headache then colon is irritated
    Bowels feel like they are going to move – but do not
    Other issues
    Odd shaped stools-small, narrow
    multiple bowel movements throughout the day
    Must run to the toilet to have bm at times-loss of control
    Loss of sense of smell
    Ongoing colon irritation,burning feeling on exterior of anus
    Face tremors
    General stiffness and muscle pain

     
    PAST FACTORS THAT COULD BE CONTRIBUTING TO HEALTH ISSUES
    Pesticide exposure- greenhouse in mid 20’s all problems can be traced to this point
    Parasite- picked up parasites 1990 India, definitely seemed to increase symptoms and of course all the treatments done for parasites, a lot of powerful medications
    Possibly vaccinations taken before trip to India- thimerosol mecury poisiningMeanwhile, classic symptoms of mercury poisoning include anxiety, fatigue and abnormal irritation, as well as cognitive and motor dysfunction.


    DIGESTIVE AND BOWEL FUNCTION

    My digestion does not seem too good, after eating at times I will have an upset stomach ,though it is rare. What is more common is for my stomach to gurgle sometimes all night if I have eaten late at night, and eaten all sorts of different foods together. I also have a lot of gas and many times it is odorless. My Bowels do not function in what I would call a normal manner. My stools are in turn- well formed, then mushy, sometimes narrow, sometimes copious sometimes very little, most of the time yellow/ green. The one thing are not is consistent. There is no connection to the firmness or normalness of my stool and whether I have a nausea attack - as a matter of fact more attacks will come after a full well formed stool, then when the stool is watery or mushy. Sometimes in the morning I wake up and have to run to the toilet the need to go to the bathroom is so strong.

    OTHER HEALTH ISSUES

    I mentioned earlier that my sense of smell began to diminish in the mid 1980’s . This has continued to the point where now I barely I have a sense of smell , and there is a constant hard mucus build up in the nostrils, this mucus build up does not seem to affected by my diet in a major way, but if I do eat lots of wheat and dairy it will get worse and I will sneeze more, In the last few years since I had bells palsy, which has totally cleared up, I have experienced facial tremors , they are minimal now but affect my eyes, and have affected my lips . I also experience what I would call sort of a involuntary jerking effect that occurs when I am sitting and relaxing. It is at a very minor level and hard to explain but it does occur regularly and seems to get more regular if I eat a lot of meat. I also have a lot of gas although much of it seems odorless.

    SUMMER FALL O7
    In depth testing on gastro intestinal tract by Genova Labs
    Show  no parasties and low levels of lactobacillus species and overgrowth of Enterobacter Cloacae
    Treatment is to use Bio K which is yogur type of product containing up to 50 Billion Live l. acidophilus and l. casei bacteria build up good bacteria in my gi tract and combine that with Uva Ursi to supress or elminiate enterobacter clocae.
    NOV 07-have used Bio K for 3 months still having nausea symptoms. Tried Uva Ursi drop 20-30 twice daily to supress supposedly high levels of enterobacter cloacae, no change in symptoms. Test for celiac comes back as negative. Went for endoscopy preliminary results show no abnormatlities.
    Begin treatment with Acidophilus Ultra from New Roots Herbal, it has l.Bifidus,l.acidophilus,l.helveticus(8781) , L. Casei,Bifido- Longum,Infantis, and Breve, S.Thermophilus,L. Bulgaracus. The thinking is that my system is out of balance and perhaps the write bacteria can balance it. Began treatment on Nov. 22/ 2 tablets a day. This is in concert with cut back on alcohol, and coffee , and sugar.
    DEC 07
    After3 weeks of experimentations with the Acidopholus Ultra, taking up to 10 pills a day, and not feeling that I was getting results I wanted, I decided to test PARIET a medicine given to me by the gastrointestinologist, this medicine is supposed to help dyspepsia, which is the doctors fancy way of saying the gut is giving you problems and they can't really identify them so this might relax the whole area, a similar concept as the paxil. This stuff I could not tolerate, it did not help and began to make me feel strange immediately, so I stopped after one day. From there I began to test a product called REJUVENATE, essentially the concept is this works at a cell level provides nutrition to the cells that is missing in today's depleted foods. My sense is that there is some sort of communication breakdown between my cells- in a general sense and anything I can do to support and repair this may be helpful. After 3 weeks of testing wiht the REJUVENATE, I feel that it is helping but I still am getting nausea attacks. I have been using the rejuvenate along with 4 acidopholus a day.
    FEB08
    I continued to  use REJUVENATE and the results are positive if not overwhelming. I am still getting the nausea attacks, and some of them are quite bad, but overall it seems that my system is a bit more stablized. The attacks seem less severe and I  have days where there is no nausea. But once again it feels like my system is adjusting to the Rejuvenate and slowly the symptoms are returning to their old intensity. This is a common result. I find something that helps, and it does , for a period of time and then it seems that what ever is bothering me finds a way to overcome it, and re manifest the symptoms. This sounds very weird , I know, but this is my experience. I tried to add a product called UMAC unique marine algae concentrate, a Marine phytoplankton made by Core. This was recommended by a website that said it worked well with fulvic acid. I thought it might help my system a cell level, however it seemed to disrupt my system and cause my symptoms to worsen, I stopped using it after only a few days because the results seemed to be so clear. Also noticiing that tremors in face and lips area are continuing and seem to be returning more than they have in a while
    MARCH/ APRIL O8
    Added Collodial Silver -10ppm to mix of what I have been taking. 1 tsp per day. This seemed to help in terms of lessening nausea, but after approx 2 weeks of taking it, I began to get headaches. I am not clear whether the headaches are caused by the collodial silver, but as of this writing in early April I have stopped taking it , hoping that headaches will diminish and then I can take it again at a reduced rate.  i have also begun a treatemnt with a product called detoxamine, this is a suppository that I am to use every other evening for 6 months. It is supposed to chelate heavy metals from my body, it is made of calcium disodium and each suppository is 1000mg. My goal is to use this as prescribed and then do a new hair analysis, from genova labs. The current hair analysis that was done in February of this year showed  very high levels of copper, high levels of lead, platinum, uranium, and moderately high levels of antimony, cadmium, gadolinium , and rhodium. At the same time that the hair analysis was done, I did food allergy testing. The most significant allergy seemed to be to yeast and pinto beans  with moderate allergies to lettuce, and cabbage.
    MAY 08
    Began suppository Chelation with a product called Detoxamine EDTA, this a product marketed by Crusador Enterprises health products, and consists of taking a suppository every second night, for approximately 6 months. At this writing I have take just over 1 month of treatment. Still having nausea attacks, of varying intensity. Have been using this product in conjuction with the Fulvic Acid and UMAC marine phytoplankton which I began to use again in March . I want to see how I feel when I just take the Detoxamine.
    MAY JUNE 08
    Took Detoxamine on its own for a few weeks, then added Kent Marine Lugol's Solution. This is an iodine product,the theory being that iodine will kill all types of bacteria and worms. After using up to about 4 drops twice a day, I began to progressively feel worse. Of course I was doing the Detoxamine at the same time. After about 2 weeks of Lugol's I felt that it was not helping the way I wanted it to. So  I stopped it, and around the same time stopped the Detoxamine, to evaluate how I was feeling.
    JULY08
    As of July 8th I have begun taking wormwood, again the theory is that there is possibly some sort of worm or bacteria in my body that continues to cause nausea, after stools, out of the blue, etc. I am not taking the Detoxamine at this point buy may add it in again, as the heavy metal issue still is in the backround. It is just that the way this nausea manifests, it feels to me as if there is some sort of living creature or creatures in my body , causing problems. Of course the stool tests show nothing and so it becomes a question of is there something they are missing from a micorbeal point of view. Or am I misdiagnosing ? Not clear at this time.


    DIAGNOSIS, ANALYSIS , AND QUESTIONS

    The way I see this from a diagnostic point of view is that there is a certain range of possibilities as to what is giving me nausea

    1. Parasites/Molds-that I cannot diagnose even with testing
    2. Some form of un diagnosed problems with my organs
    3. Some form of mineral or chemical deficiency or excess
    4. Psychological issues
    5. Allergic Reaction to food
    6. Free Radicals
    7. Environmental source
    8. Energy Blockage
    9 imbalance in bacteria in gi tract, bad bacteria thriving and causing gi upset
    10. Combination of two or more of the above categories

    ONGOING TREATMENT PLANS
    Hypnosis
    Bio Feedback
    Exercise/ weight training/aerobic exercise at intense level
    Further diagnosis by health professionals
    QUESTIONS THAT NEED TO BE ANSWERED TO PROPERLY DIAGNOSE
    Why would I nauseous after going to the bathroom?
    Why does my gas have no smell?
    Why do I pain in my solar plexus at times?
    Why does the pain seem to be different every time I am sick?
    Why do I feel like I am stoned sometimes after I have a bowel movement?
    Why does the pain last such varying amounts of time from a few hours to a few days?
     Is there any connection between my loss of smell and my nausea?

      Hi,
      I have been reading your blog with a lot of interest because i have so many of the same symptoms as you describe. Was diagnosed with blastocystis. Also received antibiotic treatments - failed. Tried diets - low carb, low fat etc - trying to starve the paraiste out but to no avail really. The overwhelming fatigue and shrotness of breath is what is really getting to me the most. I have lost 22 pounds rapidly and all my intestinal health is shot. I get daily headaches and sometime have severe muscle aches.

      Most docs dont believe that it is is pathogenic. It is very difficult to find it in the stool samples and it can lnger for years - in fact forever. There is a research foundation in Oregon (www.bhomcenter.org/)that is doing research into Blasto - they are trying to develop a blood/stool test to identify people with pathogenic blastocystis. It has been interesting to read what they have to say.

      • blasto/ health issues   by  lakecountry1     15 y     5,128   3

        Hi,

        Thanks for taking the time to post a comment. Yes the blasto thing is a tricky one, my research shows that it can be pathenogenic in about 20% of the cases- my wife had it and she felt nothing, but I believe it was part of my problem and still may be. My blasto actually disappeared on its own-after many years, but then I ended up with dientamoeba fragilis and could not get rid of it. I finally found a set of medicines that are available from a mexican pharmacy, I believe online it is medsmex.com . If you are interested in the dosages and all that I can let you know. The stool tests I have done recently show no blasto, and also no dientamoeba fragilis . As you point out blasto may still be in my body and not showing up on the testing-- this is a difficult thing to be clear on. As for you symptoms, shortness of breath, weight loss, I do not experience these, mine is much more of a sick , upset stomach feeling , but not one where I want to vomit. Happy to help out with any information.

      I am very moved to read your story. I got Blasto in Brazil this Jan and am very afraid after spending so long trying to eliminate it from my body. It seems impossible apart from a three drug treatment form what i have read so far on the net. I have most of the symptoms that you described. I am trying to convince my British Doctor to help me to get the drugs you took and those mentioned on the bad bugs website.
      Tinidazole does not seem to have worked at killing it off. I can reduce symptoms with Diet, but who wants to have such restrictions for ever?
      I am afraid of giving it to my husband and want to have a family too. It just is all very depressing. X

      • Blasto response to your email, and advice   by  lakecountry1     15 y     7,463   5
        Hi X,

        Thanks for taking the time to comment on my blog. I tried to find a link for you to the Mexican online pharmacy where I got my medicine, but it seems that it is temporarirly off line- the url. is
        http://www.medsmex.com-
        you can try it and they did have all the medications needed. Of course being in Canada I could not have them sent here or even order them from Canada- against the law. So I had a relative order them in the u.s.a. and I picked them up in the u.s.a. and used them. The results have been good in the sense that the last four stool tests I have had , have come up negative. The bad news I still have nausea. It seems that once the flora in the gut gets messed up, it can be almost impossible to get in back into balance. Overall I do feel better, and now I take Bio-K which is a very high potency fresh, yogurt type of acidopholus, it seems to be helping. I have tried so many things that I am very slow to recommend or endorse anything. The bottom line is you have to do what you feel is best for you. What I have told you about is my experience. You may want to have your partner checked for Blasto- he may not be showing symptoms but may be carrying. It may be wise for you to both put yourself through the triple therapy, as you can see I have attached the protocal below-along with Jackies comments. Jackie Delany at Bad Bugs.org , was quite helpful. Her email is badbugs@idx.com.au. Good luck. Let me know if you have any other questions


        TREATMENT PROTOCOL FOR RESISTANT
        BLASTOCYSTIS HOMINIS INFECTION

        Blastocystis hominis is one of the most common parasites found in the human digestive tract and many of those infected are asymptomatic carriers. It can, however, cause a range of gastrointestinal symptoms including diarrhoea and/or constipation, bloating, flatulence, loss of appetite, abdominal discomfort and pain. In chronic cases symptoms can include weight loss, blood in the stool, dizziness, nausea and vomiting, rectal itching, chronic fatigue and depression. Most patients become resistant to metronidazole and require a special approach in this situation. It is possible to treat this infection after which, most patients report either a complete resolution or a great reduction, in symptoms.

        Medication schedule

        You will take a combination of two antibiotics for 10 days:
        - Secnidazole 400 mg ( 3 times a day )
        - Furazolidone 100 mg ( 3 times a day )
        - Nitazoxanide 500 mg ( 2 times a day )

        Secnidazole
        (400 mg) Furazolidone
        (100 mg) Nitazoxanide
        ( 500 mg )
        Breakfast 1 tablet 1 tablet 1 tablet
        Lunch 1 tablet 1 tablet
        Dinner 1 tablet 1 tablet 1 tablet

        These tablets should be taken at the same time every day with food.

        These medications have been known to cause the following side effects:
        - nausea and vomiting - itching
        - headaches - tiredness
        - allergy

        The patient should avoid drinking alcohol for the duration of treatment.

        To ensure successful treatment of B. hominis it is important that the patient complete the entire 10 day medication schedule.

        Follow-up treatment: Three or four weeks after finishing the treatment protocol the patient should repeat the stool test to determine whether B. hominis has been eradicated.

        ________________________________________

        It may be wise to purge with Fleets Phospho Soda before treatment to reduce the parasite load, and post treatment take high doses of good quality probiotics such as VSL#3 (you'll find them on the internet), or a similar probiotic.

        Avoid fruit, sweet foods, refined carbs/starchy foods and greasy/fried foods for at least 6 weeks post treatment...Try and stick to a diet of steamed veggies, fish, wholegrains and legumes + pure water. This will help rebuild your bowel flora, and discourage yeasts and opportunistic bacterial pathogens which survive the meds.

        You may feel unwell on the treatment. I've enclosed an email from someone who recently took the meds so that you know what you may experience whilst on meds. It's likely that symptoms during treatment are toxins being released as parasites die off...+ some drug side effects. Don't forget to adhere to the furaz. diet (see my previous emails).

        • Jackie is wrong about Blastocystis and she is still ill   by  shrimpy123     10 y     4,323   6
          Jackie Delany of bad bugs has no idea what she is doing and she is in cohort with Borody, to proeprgate false information about Blastocystis. She has never been a real parasitologist to find out what she has; she now on disabilty and she because she still is gravely ill; her story is fraud; she never recovered; and she is completely unqualifeid to give advice. She does not not know that stool tests do not reveal real pathogens, and neither does Borody. Borody is a complete fraud. He says that he the recovery from so called Blasto depends on a negative test of 3 stool test after one months, and if the patient is not well, then you will do a poo transplants and a horrible infusions, whcih costs so many many thousdnads of dollars; So many have been sick because of the poo translants; if the patients is still not well, then, she is declared to suffer from dysbiosis.

          Absoluet nonsense; Borody is a GASTRo Idiot; he does not know anything about parasites; he does not how test for parasite. He put together the so called protocal becased information Jackie Delany gave him; can you understand what is wrong this couple now? Neither is really qualified to treat parasite sufferes because they do not know anything about parasites. Even if Borody saw a parasite he would not recognize it, because has no training in that field. He is a complete idiot. HE IS LIKE ANY OTHER GASTRO m*o*o*n.

          PLEASE AVOID this criminal docotor; ONE woman I know got so sick from doing the poo transplants, because they are not well tested.And people get real sick from them Jackie has done poo transplanst at home, using her own blender!

          These people will kill you; If you have a parasite problem, go see the world's very best. Dr. Kevin Cahill. He saved my life after trying to treat so called Blastocysi; I took both tripple therapies and they did nothing for me. Exvept damage me.

          Go See Dr. Kevin Cahill; he does a test that no one else does in the world; It is mucusal test, of the sigmoid.

      stool tests are virtually worthless. If you think you may still have parasites or some toxins in your body, why don't you get antiparasitic meds on the net and take them and do an "internal cleansing". Especially if BMs irregular. Many really good products out there. Also: I once read something from some guy who had e. histolica [sp?]. I think that was the one. He said that he had taken sodium chloride tablets for seven years and was finally starting to function again. I wish I could find that post again, because I'm not certain of the details.

        The comments on the use of sodium chloride are heading in the right direction... however, all answers are incomplete without considering the root cause of all degenerative diseases and impaired immune function:

        The body operating outside of PRIME pH = 7.2-7.4

        Start by reading from cover to cover, "The pH Miracle" by Robert Young and check out his blog site titled, "Articles of Health".

        If a body is maintained at a range of 7.2-7.4 (which is only obtainable thru diet), parasites along with other environmental factors can be defeated and overcome through the awesome design of the body to heal and restore itself.

        Furthermore, paracides are only completely successful if the body is free during the time of the cleanse of acid-forming foods which would provide the critters with food sources. Existing intestinal impactions of undigestable foods also must be removed before, during and after this parasidal cleanse by a qualified practioner in colon hydotherapy (colonics)to further rid the body of potential food sources for the parasites and their unborn young (eggs laid in these mycotoxic impacted beds in the intestinal tract). This impacted intestinal 'cement' originates from improper food combinations (meat w/ cheese, starches with meat, fruit w/ starch, fruit w/ veggies, meat w/ beans, unkosher meat ~ meat w/ blood & fat still in it). The body was designed to digest eat food source in different areas of the body (some in the stomach, some in the intestines) and with differing digestive aids within the body (hydrocloric acid, saliva, enzymes, alkaline environments vs acidic environments). If food types conflict in the body's attempts to digest them, the higher order food source (for ex: meat) is dealt with first and the lesser food source is combined with the higher one into an undigestable material (think of mixing two different colors of clay... it is forever a new color) that layers into the intestinal walls and literally rots and putrifies releasing gases. The villi is impacted and the body is robbed of nutrients while seeping in the mycotoxic materials from the rotting impactions into the body.

        I hope all readers will look into this for their own health's sake.

        BTW, 100% of all cancer patients tested for parasites HAD THEM. The excrement of the parasites are acidic and further peril the body's ability to obtain maintable PRIME pH.

      Hi Mark
      Wow have you done a lot of work! I'm impressed. I too have DF and BH and have had for 10 years now.....I don't feel well at all. I'm in touch with Jackie at Bad Bugs and on my way to doing the triple drug protocol +Doxy for the combination. I told Jackie I feel the reason a lot of people don't experience complete recovery after the parasites are gone is because there are a lot of other confoundingvariables. Low or missing enzymes, food intolerances, leaky gut, low adrenal hormones, an imbalance in natural non pathogenic flora (see 'anxiety' under Behavioural Neurotherapy Clinic in Australia), Yeast overgrowth or allergy/sensitivity.....all either caused by the bugs or contributing to the bugs...they may even be the cause of the bugs or at least there pathogenicity in folks like us. I noted you didn't try an elimination diet.....that would be my next step if I were you. I would love to talk more on this issue. I've researched the hell out of this and have a lot of info and contacts to share. I'm starting on my plan today with an intestinal cleanse by Dr Natura.....Here we go! Any feed back on just how sick the triple med concoction will make one feel?
      Thanks,
      Neil

        Hi Neil,

        Thank you for your comments, thoughs and questions. To answer your question on how sick does the triple treatment make you. It did not make me too sick, I was able to function, did have a bad taste in my mouth, and at times felt a bit more nauseous than usual. But overall, for me , it was tolerable. I totally agree with you that , even when the bugs are gone, not feeling well is related to possible dysbiosis, bacterial imbalance, missing enzymes, or whatever. That is the tricky part, how to identify what in the great chemical soup is missing. For now I am focusing on re poplulating my colon with good bugs. Results, are mixed, but I am keeping on it. I do think that part of the cure is getting rid of d.f. and b.h. and anything else in that possible pathogen area. Would like to be in touch with you directly and I am going to send you an email.

        Regards, Mark Rosal

    • D.F and Blasto   by  Dual_Gal     15 y     4,946   11
      Hello,

      I can't believe I found you on the internet and that we have such similiar health problems as described in your blog. I've also have been in contact with Jackie (badbugs.org). She has been walking me through what I need to do here in Canada and what our medical system believes about D.F and Blasto. I have been treated for D.F. with 2 rounds of Iodoquinol and have had 2 good tests. I think I may have Blasto. but can not find a lab to confirm or negate this. I would accept the doctor's diagnosis of my having IBS if we had not found D.F. and had some improvement with the meds. I took. Now I want to completely rule out Blasto. Jackie said our Canadian labs are hit and miss with telling us if they find Blasto. because they have to believe it is a pathogen. Even after treating my D.F. and having good test results my doctor said it may have been a placebo effect. Annoying to say the least.

      My question to you is this:

      What doctor in the Okanagan, Kelowna area did you see that allowed you to be tested through the Genova lab in the U.S. My doctor would not be receptive to this and I need to be sure I am free of these parasites before I go on to any other testing/scoping/medicines as are being recommended.

      I look forward to hearing back from you and wish you all the best with your health issues. I know some days can be hard but please don't lose hope for better health on on the horizon.

      Sincerely,
      Tee
      PS - I hope I'm using this site correctly - I don't do much on the internet.

        Hi Tee,

        Thanks for your email. I did not go through my doctor. I went to my naturopath. Genova labs will deal with naturopaths- no problem. Here is a link to Genova labs
        http://www.gdx.net/home/client_services/gettingstarted/As
        for our labs missing Blasto, well I had tests done by my local lab- valley medical here in Kelowna and they caught the Blasto every single time. When you go to your doctor, if you tell him you will pay privately for stool tests, and not charge the medical plan, alot of times they will do stool tests for you. You just have to pay the lab and they will bill,cost me a few hundred dollars but I was worth it for a couple of tests. If you have more questions, send them. I would be happy to help out in whatever way I can.

      Have you ever tried Lugol's Iodine Solution? There is a ton of information on this site for it. Also check out Hulda Clark's sites. What you are describing is an acute micro infestation of something that cannot been seen with normal stool sampling methods. Parasites act as hosts for other other smaller parasites and the life cycle gets longer and longer as you get sicker and sicker. They use all of the nourishing herbs and party their butts off... As they multiply, poop, and die your body is filled with their wastes. Their waste is toxic and that is what makes you sick. Similarly, once you take antibiotics you kill all of the good bacteria and you get yeast, many of which are resistant to western drugs. The yeast also have special parasites that live on them.... the cycle is very hrad to break - as you can attest.

      Lugol's is not harmful. It actually crosses into the blood cells and steals the oxygen from the microbes. It kills them. Typical protocol calls for two drops in plain water on a dialy basis. The hope is that over time you can build up to at least a half a dropperful at least once a day. (Trapper on the Iodine/Parasite forum is your best resource for how to do this.) You have to drink it in a non acidic juice to preserve the iodine. Grape juice masks the taste pretty well for kids.

      Lugol's is safe for your wife and all of your kids to take. One of the easist ways to get it since the FDA banned its sale to us humans is to go to an aquarium shop and ask for Kent Marine Lugol's Solution. Usually about $20.00 per bottle and if you are all "baby dosing" it will last for a while. You can wash fresh food in a solution of 2 drops and soak for 20 minutes. You can put 2 drops in the tub for the kids baths. It removes heavy metals - flouride, bromine, chlorine; it kills microbes, it kills viruses... it also nourishes the thyroid, lymphatic system, etc. You smear it on your belly where you feel the pain the most and cover it with coconut or castor oil and it will be absorbed into you body. Your blood goes through the thyroid about every 17 minutes. Once your thyroid is up to the task it will aid in killing any and all bacteria, microbes, etc.

      If you decide to do the Lugol's, you all need to supplement with some sort of liquid minerals -- like drops in water or juice. Liquid magnesium also helps. Your poops will smell like sushi from the iodine and will be loose (nothing new for you) from the minerals. But - most people notice an immediate improvement. You might also try something called Rascals from Hanna Kroger. Lucky Vitamins has great prices on her parasite formulas. Salt pushes or pulses (using REAL honest to go unadulterated salt from the ground, like red himalayan salt) will dehydrate/sear the skin of the worms in addition to helping rebalance your system.

      Also, if you haven't tried zapping - try it. Inexpensive way is to get a 9V battery, two two-way alligator clips, two pieces of copper pipe - wrap in wet paper towels, zap by putting it in your socks while you are computing. Hulda Clark websites sell them…

      Anyway – once you get past the die-off (herxing) you’ll begin to feel better. Again, these are just suggestions – read some of the forums and look up the words I have mentioned. My foster daughter had tried many parasite cleanses and didn’t really get any results until she added the Lugols. She also maintains that the pains/nausea you are describing are actually from the worms. Since adding the iodine and doing the alt pushes with the Rascals the stuff that has been exiting her body are unreal – and she tested negative for worms.

      DIAGNOSIS, ANALYSIS , AND QUESTIONS

      The way I see this from a diagnostic point of view is that there is a certain range of possibilities as to what is giving me nausea

      1. Parasites/Molds-that I cannot diagnose even with testing

      And YOU CAN do these things and do them now.
      Go to a nutrionist, see if you have celiac dis-ease. If you do not, get on a regular diet now.
      Get OFF fluoridated water and CHLORINE. Also--NOW.

      2. Some form of un diagnosed problems with my organs
      If it is undiagnosed, what do you suspect and why?

      3. Some form of mineral or chemical deficiency or excess

      This can be handled with supplements and food.

      4. Psychological issues
      This can be handled in two ways. Physcologists-orperhaps you have bromine poisoning.
      Again FOOD is a key and if you are unwell mentally, find out the real cause.
      GO to a naturopath.


      5. Allergic Reaction to food
      Describe. Rash? Fever?

      6. Free Radicals-totally preventable

      7. Environmental source
      I'll leave that one alone. I assume you are a city dweller.

      8. Energy Blockage
      Easily treated with body work.

      9 imbalance in bacteria in gi tract, bad bacteria thriving and causing gi upset
      IODINE IODINE IODINE
      kill all the parasites
      fix the organs.

      10. Combination of two or more of the above categories

      I really think you just need to listen to yourself but with a new attitude of "I can heal me with a few saged pieces of advice." Like Loiuse hay and the "secret" and a lot of people on this website.
      Or--do you want to be ill? Is it all you do? Is it all you talk about? I am not being mean, your guides say your focus is on illness so you draw it to you.
      Change your focus, change your life.

      ONGOING TREATMENT PLANS

      Hypnosis
      Bio Feedback
      Exercise/ weight training/aerobic exercise at intense level
      Further diagnosis by health professionals


      Dear Mark
      Perhaps it is time to try quantum mechanics, along with a fwe other things.
      Instead of telling yourself you are ill, can we agree that you can tell yourself instead "I accept perfect healing now?"
      This would be your best approach.
      Now let look at the other things you write.


      QUESTIONS THAT NEED TO BE ANSWERED TO PROPERLY DIAGNOSE
      Why would I nauseous after going to the bathroom?
      Why does my gas have no smell?

      I have no sense of smell, never worried about it. nor would I care if my "gas hd no smell" this comes from what you eat!

      Why do I pain in my solar plexus at times?
      Why does the pain seem to be different every time I am sick?

      why are you paying so much attention to pin, and not to healing?

      Why do I feel like I am stoned sometimes after I have a bowel movement?because you force so hard you make the blood rush to your head.

      Why does the pain last such varying amounts of time from a few hours to a few days?because we are all different.

      Is there any connection between my loss of smell and my nausea?
      Please. No there is not.
