Blog: Parasite Infection Diagnosed as IBS

I had a parasite infection misdiagnosed as IBS (Irritable Bowel Syndrome) for 17 years. I had many Giardia, E. Coli, Culture, H. Pylori, Ova and Parasite tests which all returned negative. I had a sigmoidoscopy which showed no anomalies. Yet I had a raging parasite infection that must have been huge given that it had gone on for so long. Current tests don't cover the full spread of parasites humans can get. This article lists the ...

Entry: Antispasmodic Dicyclomine (Bentyl)

I was prescribed Dicyclomine (Bentyl), an antispasmodic, on two separate occasions and had the same results. The first time I had a long-standing parasite infection. I took it daily for 2 - 3 months (unfortunately I can't remember quantity). It helped initially and then it simply stopped worki...

Entry: Multivitamin to Compensate for Poor Digestion

I take multivitamins to compensate for poor digestion. I've been using Pure Encapsulations Nutrient 950 for several years. I take a separate calcium supplement which covers ~60% of recommended daily value. Periodically I take a break to see if it makes a difference. I definitely notice it.

Entry: Parasite/Bacteria - MicroDefense

I take Pure Encapsulations MicroDefense 3 to 4 times a year to kill parasites and bad bacteria. This has been the most effective treatment for my condition (SIBO/parasite infection) to date. I take 3 capsules 3x a day for 10 days and then take a 5 day break. Then I do a second round of 3 ...

Entry: Probiotics

Having a good probiotic definitely makes a difference. Finding a good probiotic has taken some time. So far, these have yielded the best results:  •  Mercola Complete Probiotics (70 Billion CFU) - It recommends 1 capsule daily but I had better results with 1 capsules 2x a day. They ...

Entry: Spirulina and Chlorella

A few years back I started taking spirulina and chlorella. I read stories about it restoring people to perfect health. Well, that didn't happen but I think it helps with overall health. I take Mercola Spiru-Blue (3 tabs a day) and Mercola Fermented Chlorella (5-6 tablets a day). I've taken Ear...

Entry: Celery Juicing

I've read that fresh celery juice can have remarkable results (strengthen digestion, anti-inflammatory, increase HCL, even a first hand account of it curing cancer)  so I tried it out. I drank 1 - 2 cups of fresh organic celery juice daily for 2 months. I had it in the morning on an empty stom...

Entry: Moringa Tea for Dehydration and Acid Reflux

I’ve had chronic dehydration or dry mouth for as long as I've had SIBO. I always feel thirsty. The cause is a mystery. I’ve been tested for diabetes multiple times (negative). I was never diagnosed with dry mouth. After recently getting food poisoning, I started having acid reflux too.  ...

Entry: HCL supplements to improve digestion

I was prescribed HCL by a naturopath. The theory was my body wasn't creating enough HCL to digest food properly. I took Premier Research Labs HCL capsules (one to two) with each meal. It didn't improve my condition. I tried another brand (can't remember the name) and I had the same results. &n...
