http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25773490CONCLUSION: Six ethanolic plant extract showed significant antiprotozoal activity against Blastocystis. M. oppositifolius showed nearly as good activity as the reference antiprotozoal drug MTZ. Historically, the active plants found in this study have been used against dysentery, diarrhoea or other stomach disorders. Nowadays they are not used specifically for dysentery, but they are being used as medicinal plants against various stomach disorders.

Same here - wonder if we could get seeds and grow our own though?

Btw, just to add, I think half a glass of red wine (Cabernet Sauvignon) each night with my evening meal actually rid me of Blasto - after two weeks of this I started to put some weight back on :-)

Several studies have shown that red wine (and in particular some varieties such as CS and Merlot) are effective against organisms such as H Pylori (as well as viruses) - that's why I started drinking it in the first place :D

If it's also effective against protozoa (which many people think it is following personal ecxperience) that could explain increas in gut flora - as the protoza - that are no longer there - can diminsh bacterial numbers.

I agree with the wine for benefit, but there are trade offs. Wine seemed to help decrease my protozoan, but is high in sulfur and with a CBS mutation, I have issues with sulfite toxicity. I personally think that ethanol creates an environment that is not favorable to certain pathogens. I have been worried about its effects on GI bacteria also. I drank a vanilla wine because of its chemical composition. I wasn't methylating very well back then so it may be something I revisit.
