According to a study in 2005, B. hominis is increasingly becoming accepted as an agent of human intestinal disease. In twenty-three symptomatic patients, B. hominis represented the only causative parasitic agent. The most common symptoms were diarrhoea (30.4%), abdominal pain (26.1%), flatulence (21.7%). vomiting (13.1%) and fatigue (8.7%). High concentrations of B. hominis were found in symptomatic patients than in asymptomatic ones with statistical significant difference (8.2 cells/100 x field versus 3.8 respectively). The mean number of B. hominis was significantly high in patients complaining of diarrhoea and abdominal pain. Treatment success rates are increased with natural medicine treatment. Read more…
Did you know that some of the most common digestive issues can come as a result of the presence of parasites in the body? If you suffer regularly with diarrhoea, loose or broken stools, frequent bowel motions, constipation, flatulence, fatigue or associated conditions such as anaemia, nausea, nutritional deficiencies and malabsorption issues, these health conditions may derive from the presence of intestinal parasites.
Many people struggle to comprehend how parasitism could possibly be the root cause of a digestive health concern. However, it is a much more common issue than people think and is increasingly becoming the core agent found to be the root cause of many intestinal diseases.
In the testing of 23 different symptomatic patients at the Cura Integrative Medicine clinic, Blastocystis hominis, a genus of single-celled protozoan parasites, presented as the only causative agent.
In fact, quite interestingly, the presence of parasites was significantly high in patients from this sample who were complaining of diarrhoea and abdominal pain symptoms.
How can parasite symptoms be tested?
The Cura Clinic uses a variety of laboratories including the Metametrix laboratories in America and Nutripath pathology in Australia to ensure the delivery of the most superior parasite testing in Perth.
We utilise fixative collections to increase the accuracy of a parasitic draw test and, in turn, increase the likelihood of diagnosis. Fixative collective jars preserve the structure of a parasite, making it easier for lab technicians to identify any and all forms of B. hominis, not just the cysts.
How can the presence of parasites be treated?
Treatment success rates of the presence of Blastocystis hominis parasites are increased with the use of natural medicine treatment versus similar methods of eradication using orthodox medicines.
As our naturopaths submit stools for such in-depth testing, we are able to conclusively identify the precise type of parasite and the level of parasites presence in the body and devise a natural treatment plan which has been proven to successfully eradicate the specific type and level of parasites.
Through a combination of herbal medicines and other naturopathic treatments, we can enable your body to perform a natural parasite cleanse.
