Found this really interesting. "To those who have been diagnosed with “Blastocystis” or have been told that your ongoing gut-related health issues are a byproduct of “candida” or “disbiosis”: I know what you are going through. What I have to say may be helpful to you. I can attest to you, with from my heard-earned yet painful experience of initial misdiagnosis and wrong treatment, that Blastocystis is not pathogenic. And your problems are from another parasite as it was the case for me. Let me explain. All my life, for 43 years, I was in the best of health. But I got ill in March 2011, after I ate uncooked shrimp Thailand, purchased at a local store in the US. I became deadly ill in 4 days with the following debilitating symptoms: horrible fatigue, diarrhea, mushy, foul-smelling stool, excruciating pain on both sides of the colon, severe back pain, sugar-craving, sensitivity to all kinds of food, and severe left arm pain (which I later found out was from spleen and liver inflammation caused by the parasite), muscle tingling and knee pain, and rashes, and itching of the skin, anal itching. Days after the symptoms, I did three stool tests at the local lab, they CLAIMED they did not find anything, except “Blastocystis.” Then the local doctor gave me 10 days of 500mg Metronidazole (3 times a day). The meds did nothing except make me more sick and fatigued. And then, as my symptoms persisted, I went to one gastro and one local infectious disease specialist: within the next two months, one doctor prescribed Alinia 500mg for 21 days (3 times a day) and a yet another doctor gave 21 of Metronidazole 750! Once again, meds rendered me more ill, and did not alleviate my symptoms. Then, in desperation, I contacted the CDD in Australia, as they promised to offer new options to fight this. Within two months, I took triple therapies. Both therapies did nothing. By then it was Sept, 2011, and I was becoming more ill, unable to function. I had to go on medical disability. But I continued to do stool tests (by then I had 25 stool tests), and now the labs were saying I no longer have Blasto! But I said I was still ill with the SAME symptoms. Then I became very suspicious of the general narrative about Blastocsystis and suspected it was something else. Then I went to see two eminent parasite specialists named Dr. martin Wolfe in DC and Dr. Kevin Cahill in NY city. Both confirmed unequivocally that Blastocystis (if such a thing existed) was not pathogenic at all but said that what I had was E. Histolytica. Eh is the SAME as G. Fragilis. With that diagnosis, I took Tinidazole (2500mg) for 5 days (once a day), and Paromomycin (750Mg) (to be taken on the 6th day) for 10 days 3 times a days (every 8 hours) and then I also took 5 days Albendazole 400mg twice a day. And then within weeks, I began to miraculously recover, and my appetite returned, and my pain and fatigue went away. Then I called up the CDD in Australia and asked why the treatments did not work. They had no good explanation. Then I came across many stories of people who has tried the triple therapies and found no relief. This confirmed to me that it never was Blastocystis but Eh, which is very hard to find. It appears that the CDD did not know that best treatment for Eh/D. fragilis was Tinidazole and Paromo, as prescribed the Center for Disease Control in the US; in my case, Albendazole was given as precaution for some other potentially undiagnosed parasite. Also, you must note that if you have Eh. You must do Tinidazole PRIOR to Paromomycin, because Paromo does not kill the parasites in the tissues. Paromomycin only works in the gut. Anyway, All I have to say is that if you are still, after taking meds, you probably took the wrong drugs, as I did initially or you have the wrong diagnosis. And more often than not, local labs are not competent to diagnose the parasites, as you probably know. Please don’t give up; one thing I can assure you is that once the infection is eradicated, your whole system returns to normal. But it takes sometime for the gut to remain normal. If it does not, you still have an infection. So find out what you have. Good luck."http://natureglow.com.au/2013/03/12/a-gut-full-of-parasites-my-experience-with-dientamoeba-fragilis/?replytocom=4767Found this really interesting.
