Parasite Questions

Dear All,

I got sick 5 years ago on holiday in menorca and have had very little help from doctors here . I found out early on that the problem was mainly just bad nausea but since then it has caused prostate problems then finally very bad bowel spasms and bowel inflammation . Only thing i have had found is H Pylori but docs did find inflammed bowel later on but couldnt find a reason as i was neg crohns , UC , celiac etc so they put it down to ibs ! I am 29 and never had any health problems before this holiday . I still think it has something to do with contracting something in the water whilst over there and have since found that H Pylori is easily contracted on the island . However i do feel possibly i contracted something else but need to ask a few questions if someone can hep out on any i would be more than grateful .

Is it possible to have a parasite yet never have had diarrhea ?

Is it possible for a parasite or bad bacteria to cross from prostate to bowel or the other way round ?

I have small white freckles appear on arms and legs along with severe itching in these areas . Could this be parasitic possibly ?

I know about the CDSA stool tests but are there any specific bloods that may show signs of possible parasite ?

Many many thanks to all . I am in severe bowel spasm pains and very very weak as i type so any info truly would be wonderful.

Best health to all,

Jon

jonbhoy, For information in parasites and the inability of labs to pick them up and/or ignore them, check out all pages on the following website.  http://wbara.idx.com.au/dfragilis/links.htm
It's a very well researched site and the information is totally reliable.

I had been feeling sick to my stomach for months, so I went to a gastroenteroligist to try and find the problem. After many different meds. He found that I had a parasite in my intestine. I had an elogated colon and everything stayed in my body so long that it would make me sick.  They did do blood test but I don't remember the name. It seems like you could ask you doctor to recommend a good gastro. dr. and go from there.  Good luck hope you feel better.

Although this is an old link I thought it important to share a link that might help inform people about parasites. This is not for the light hearted.

Understanding parasites and how they affect your body is key in taking the steps to doing something about it. I had a health scare 8 years ago and it was due to parasites. I found my answer in drnatura's colonix program. It is important that you recognize the importance of cleansing and your health. Being informed help me make a choice that has changed my life and given me my health back.
