I had a positive stool test for charcoal crystals and put on 10 days of flagyl. is it enough to cure any amoeba infection? I read on a site that other drugs like paramomycin and nitrozoxamide may be better
lemon pips! toxic to paracites
oh, fresh papaya seeds.... i just eat the whole thing, it's so delicious :D
Amoeba is a bacteria ?
Are you sure ? I actually had amoebic dysentery and thought it was a protozoa.
Either way, I was treated with proper drugs, as it's the case with symptomatic e. histolytica.
Having lived most of my life in tropical countries though, I eat papaya seeds to resolve and prevent minor parasitic infections.
Thank you for your reply.
Yes, the Parabiotic Plus (name brand from Biogenesis) has wormword extract as artemisia annua, olive leaf extract as (Olea europea), berberine sulfate from aquifolium root bark, grapefruit seed extract 4:1 ratio, Thyme 4:1 ratio, Berberis vulgaris (barberry extract), Uva Ursi Extract (4:1 ratio, arctostaphylos), black walnut hull (juglans nigra 10:1 ratio), clove, origanum vulgare (oregano leaf extract, mexican). As you see it does have a lot of the things we've all mentioned and what I originally was asking for was if anyone knows a different supplement company that has a reputation for a good antiparasitic product that offers a different combination of herbs.
Yes, I'm well aware that some supplement companies are stronger in some products than others. Yes, Metagenics is available to other practitioners that is what I said and yes it is available online but not at the physicians price. Also Metagenics is not the product I'm using for my anti-parasite, I used it as an example. However, Metagenics does have a place with certain patients who may be allergic to a whole food nutrient in some supplements and they actually may need a synthetic form such as what Metagenics offers in some of their products. On the other hand alot of supplements out there that are available to the public DO have lots of fillers as you mentioned and they actually also have very high mega doses of synthetic vitamins which not everyones systems can handle. I use a supplement line that uses little fillers The supplement companies that I use as a practitioner are far superior than what you is offered to the general public and the ones I work with do not have fillers, and the other negative things you've listed as that is the entire reason I use them. A lot of readily available products actually include exactly what you've listed and why I choose to use brands available to physicians. I am not into marketing I'm into healing. As far as the Saccharmyces Boulardii I am not using it for an anti-parasite but as an anti-candida and it works wonders for that. This person has colitis and the Florastor works wonders on people with Colitis when there is yeast involved. Probiotics and Prebiotics however, do help with parasite condtions as an added note, as it helps do a few things like keep the environment unfriendly for the bacteria to thrive regarding pH, it also helps secretes SIga which helps increase intestinal protease enzymes which also help to erradicate the bacteria as well as helps to restore the environment so that the bacteria find it more difficult to latch onto the intestinal wall. I again ask does anyone know a product that works for amoebas particularly, experienced with amoebas reply only please.
Laura, (The products are not for me, as I'm the practitioner)
Thank you for your reply.
Yes, pumpkin seeds are good for parasites as I have my client on them for part of his diet they're especially good with cayenne pepper on them as they don't like the spice either. Also, I have this person on fiber after the first week of the anti-parasite to help remove the dead parasite debris. I was using psyllium husk powder, which do you use. I suppose each case is different but would like to hear your experiences?
Have you ever used diatomataceous earth?
Also I am aware of all of the cleansing lines out there and the actual parasite kits. I'm not going that route as my client has so much more going on than just parasites. I'm trying to deal with each thing as a whole rather than to isolate each problem. I'm also concerned with the clients budget. I do colon hydrotherapy for my clients as well am familiar with the different colon cleansing as well thank you for the mention. I don't particularly want this client to do this as he has a lot of large ulcerations in his lining and do not want to further irritate the weak lining as well as push any debris out of the lumen to go systemic.
Do you know of any products that work particularly well on amoebas??
I have done a few parasite cleanses.....my favorite being Dr Natura's.....a fantastic blend of wormwood, black walnut hull, clove, etc.....and it also includes a fiber blend to soak up and pull out the dead stuff and toxins that are given off by the dying parasites (aldehyde, etc). I also like the fact that they encourage and teach and include the importance of the probiotics during the cleanse as well.
I have also read a lot about pumpkin seeds are good to eat as it is anti parasitic. :)
It is very important to remember that you need to supplement your vitamins and minerals.....parasites will rob you of your nutrients.
You will personally know which product is best for you as you try them...you will know which is working best for you by what you move out of your body...lol...yes ugly looking poop....lol.....and by how you feel. :)
Most intestinal parasites are driven out by the same collection of herbs, though arranged somewhat differently, but some infections are difficult. The most common combos use wormwood, black walnut, clove, and then they start to differ. While the Boulardii is good for the immune system, it doesn't necessarily kill anything off. The anti-parasitics are both toxic to parasites and also drive them away and out the intestinal tract. There are a lot of them. Eclectic Institute makes a good wormwood combo. I haven't been thrilled with the professional lines such as Metagenics -- they often use fillers and binders that aren't the best and cheap forms of minerals, and they aren't really herbal experts, but they're popular with practitioners because you can't buy them from anyone else. More a marketing thing than a quality thing. Like every other company, some of their products are fine, some aren't. You also certainly don't have to be a physician to order it -- any health professional sells them, including chiropractors and naturopaths and nutritionists, and you can find them on the web from some companies, but you have to look under the professional lines to find them. That being said, anything that works for you is the best product, and every herbal company makes an antiparasitic. There are also many companies that make whole antiparasitic lines, that would include not only the antiparasitic herbs but also colon cleansing. Good luck finding what works best for you.
Thank you for all your comments.
Yes, I know amoebas are a bacteria.
It is an intestinal parasite and the actual name of the particular amoeba I'm talking about is Endolimax Nanas. It was not considered a pathogen until just recently. It is a trophozoite. It is the smallest member of the Amoeba intestinal parasite family and very hard to deal with esp if it goes systemic.
I've so far given Parabiotics by Biogenesis. The next thing I'm ordering is Parex by Metagenics and no! you cannot order this over the counter you need to be a licensed physician to order. I am a practitioner however, I don't want the nasty buggers to become resistant to the Parabiotics which has berberine, oregano, and others, I don't want them to incorporate it into their DNA and become resistant. I want to go in know that I've cleaned out the tract with FloraStor (Saccharamyces Boulardii) an actual Bakers Yeast, to make it an unfriendly environment and then went in with ParaBiotics a great anti-parasitic natural drug. Now I want to know if anyone knows of another Drug that is not pharmaceutical that is good for amoebas. Does that help a little better??
I definately think we need a little more information from you. :)
caregiver- nice to see you! How have you been? Very interesting to know that bismuth is toxic to amoeba's? Hmmmm. :)
i used a metahenics tablet called parex, not sure if its behind the counter or not. the ingredients list is long but reads very herbal. i was on detox program.
What do you mean amoebae? That's just bacteria. What are you really talking about, intestinal parasites?
You should not be fooling around with these creatures.
According to the literature there are good amoebas and bad amoebas.
As far as I'm concerned, the only good amoeba is a dead amoeba.
Bismuth, the main ingredient in PeptoBismal, is said to be toxic to them. Also nicotine and potato and eggplant skins.
