If you have heartburn, bloating, gas, stomach pain or abdominal cramps, constipation or diarrhea, there’s a good chance you have parasites, or some kind of bacterial or fungal overgrowth in your gut.
Stress and food intolerance can also cause these symptoms and in my experience it is usually several of these factors combined.
This video from the Dr. Oz show highlights the “parasite problem”.
While I don’t especially like the way Dr. Oz hypes up his TV shows (just my opinion), his information is usually pretty good and he’s doing a really great job of raising awareness in areas that aren’t receiving enough medical attention.
Watch this video and you’ll see how important the parasite problem is, and what you can do about it.
How do you test for parasites?
Later in the video, Dr. Oz and his colleague discuss strategies for killing and preventing parasites.
These strategies are okay when dealing with some parasites, but I can tell you from a decade’s worth of experience that they will not work for all parasites, or for everyone.
Other factors such as gluten sensitivity, fungal overgrowth (Candida), small intestinal bacterial overgrowth and other things that cause digestive problems also need to be considered.
I am not a fan of running “ad hoc” cleanses. I prefer to run proper testing and then tailor a healing program to the test result.
It’s more efficient, faster, and saves time and money in the long run.
How stool testing helped me
As you know, I run a lot of digestive health testing with people and I’ve seen lots of different parasites.
In fact, I had a parasite myself – Blastocystis hominis – as well as H. pylori.
I also had a mold called Aspergillus overgrowing in my intestine and causing problems.
This was important because the protocols needed to help get rid of H. pylori are not the same as the one we’d use for parasites or mold overgrowth.
Without the proper testing, I would not have known what strategy was going to fix my gut.
But with the testing results, it was easy to create a gut-healing roadmap.
Here’s another example
Just yesterday, I received this test result for one of our clients:
What does it all mean?
Without entering into too much detail, you can see that she has a parasite called Dientameba fragilis.
BUT, she also has a bacterial overgrowth with Pseudomonas, and a really high anti-gliadin sIgA, which shows she has problems with gluten.
Furthermore, she has a very low secretory IgA level, which shows her gut immune system is suppressed.
This needs to be improved otherwise she will just keep getting infections, even if she gets rid of the ones she has now.
She’ll just go round and round in circles, as so many people do.
If we were only to treat the parasite, as Dr. Oz infers, then we would NOT get this client’s symptoms properly under control.
In her case, I can almost guarantee that the gluten and bacterial overgrowth are more important than the parasite and we need to deal with all of the issues we have found.
Going round in circles?
If you feel like you are going round in circles with your symptoms, it could well be that you have parasites, as Dr. Oz says.
But it’s unlikely they are the only reason you don’t feel yourself right now.
A stool test kit can be sent to your home, and you can uncover all the reasons you’ve been feeling under the weather.
You’ll finally know what’s been going on, and you’ll finally know what to do to get well again.
It’s a really simple, but hugely powerful 7-step process…
This simple process is precisely how I was able to overcome my own health problems, and it’s the one we have used to help so many other people.
I’m biased, but I believe we can help you feel much better, much faster.
