I'm a new member so I'll briefly share my story. After 13 years of ill health (IBS, joint & muscle pain, food intolerance, persistent vaginitis) I had a GI effects profile done which revealed the Protozoa Endolimax nana and PPTU. After a course of flagyl I had a parisitology profile done which revealed blastocystis and PPTU. This is despite taking saccharomyces boulardii during the flagyl and the probiotic VSL#3 afterwards!
So clearly I am prone to these types of infections so I was interested to hear from others who have had the full GI Profile done to see what your beneficial bacteria levels were like. My lactobacillus levels were good but my bifidobacteria levels were borderline deficient and my beneficial e.coli was almost deficient. I've been reading a bit about the e.coli lately but there doesn't seem to be any specific research on Protozoa prevention. Any input or info would be greatly appreciated.
