How To Treat Parasite and Bacterial Infections
A lot of people associate parasite and bacterial infections with travelling to exotic parts of the world, but because they can be easily transmitted they have spread around the world and can be easily picked up in Australia, North America or the U.K.
Infections from parasites or bacteria can be quite sudden, your digestion can be working fine with no symptoms one week, and by the next week you are getting diarrhoea, bloating and pain.
Early Stage Symptoms
In the early stages of infection the symptoms are quite acute and can include:
- Alternating Diarrhea and constipation
After the initial acute stage the digestion symptoms can continue but often they are milder in nature and more intermittent. Other symptoms unrelated to your digestion can start to occur and this is caused by the parasite or bacterial infection.
Chronic Parasite and Bacterial Infections Symptoms Can Include:
Parasite and bacterial infections can also cause symptoms not relating to digestive problems - especially cognitive problems and muscle/ joint pain. If the symptoms below started after you have had gut problems then doing a stool test may help to identify the cause.
- Anxiety and depression
- Brain fog
- Muscle or joint pain
- Skin problems
Some of the most common parasites include:
- Giardia intestinal
- Cryptosporidium species
- Dientamoeba fragilis
- Entamoeba histolytica
- Blastocystis hominis
Common Pathogenic Bacteria
Some of the most common pathogenic bacteria include:
- Campylobacter species
- Salmonella species
- Shigella species
- Yersinia enterocolitica
- Aeromonas species
Natural Treatments For Bacteria And Parasite Infections
There are some excellent natural options for treating parasite or bacterial infections, once we have identified the specific infection and assessed other CDSA test markers, an individual program will be formulated for you to eliminate the infection.
Treatment includes herbal anti-microbial and anti-parasitic formulas, as well as biofilm disruptors to break down the protective barrier that these infections form. Soil based probiotic formulas are also used to help eliminate the infection as well as improve your levels of beneficial bacteria.
Diet is also important and for the treatment period you will be put on a specific diet that will help you to get your digestion back on track.
How To Identify A Parasite Or Bacterial Infection
The best way to identify if you have a parasite or bacterial infection is to do a GI Map test. This way we are identifying the parasites by looking for their DNA, this is a lot more accurate than looking through a microscope to identify pathogens.
