Testing And Diagnosis Of Blastocystis Hominis Infection

August 19, 2019

Greetings. New Zealand naturopath, Eric Bakker,
author of Candida Crusher and formulator of the Canxida range of dietary supplements.
Have you clicked on the link yet? This is one in a series of Blastocystis hominis. Please
click on the link now to download the free report.
I trust you’ve checked out my website,, and also completed my Candida Crusher quiz.
This will give you a bit of an insight if you’ve got any kind of a gut problem. Blasto
can sometimes be confused with Candida, and Candida can be confused with Blasto. Many
patients I’ve seen don’t, in fact, have Candida at all, but have Blastocystis hominis infections,
so there is no harm doing my yeast infection quiz. And please don’t forget my Candida supplements
that I’ve created, which work fantastic for blasto infections. They’re called Canxida. Canxida Remove and Canxida Restore. These are two products that are perfect for
people with blasto infections. If you’ve got a problem with your gut, how
do you diagnose? How do you test? How do you know you’ve got a Blastocystis hominis infection?
Stool testing is the best way. The gold standard in gastroenterology is usually three or four
stool samples concurrently on separate days. But I can tell you this folks, I’ve had many
patients over the years that tested negative, but yet when we treated them, we got a fantastic
outcome. Sometimes you don’t find what you’re looking for.
I’ve learned in medicine a lot of it is common sense. If a patient presents with symptoms
of gut pain, diarrhea, bloating, farting, and the test comes back negative, I treat
anyway. I always treat. Stool testing is still the best way. Not only are you looking for
Blastocystis hominis when you do a stool test, you’re also looking for the levels of beneficial
bacteria. We need to know what your level of lactobacillus acidophilus and the bifida
bacteria are. We need to know what your level of cocci species are and E.coli and other
bacteria that should be where they should be.
If you’ve had a longstanding blasto infection, there’s a chance you’ve got very low levels
of good bacteria. So the policemen of the gut could be well down, and that’s not good
because that’s going to stop your progress. That’s going to hinder your recovery. If you’ve
got a lot of criminals in town and not a lot of policemen and women in the town, that’s
really bad for the citizens because the offenders have got free reign. If you’ve got a very
strong police presence, generally, you’re going to be able to keep the offenders at
bay. And it’s the same with the digestive system. We need a lot of good bacteria there.
Stool testing is not just to see what kind of levels of blasto you’ve got. It’s to see
what other kinds of parasites you’ve got because criminals hang around with criminals. And
then as I always say, I’ve said in my book, you’ve got the petty criminals, you’ve got
the wannabes and then you’ve got the seriously good criminals. And it’s the same in the gut.
You’ve got different levels of parasite infections. When you’ve had a diarrhea and a gut problem
a long time, chances are you’ll have multiple kinds of parasites in the gut. You’ll have
various kinds of bad bacteria, and you’ll have low levels of beneficial bacteria. You
could have a lot of inflammation. A CDSA times three, so a comprehensive digestive stool
analysis times three samples will gauge all of what we’ve just spoken about. It will give
us a really good snapshot of what’s going on in your gut right now. Contact me if you
want to do that test. I can put you in touch with the right lab to do that.
A general practitioner is usually a waste of time when it comes to giving you a broad-spectrum
analysis of the gut. Medicine is excellent. Don’t get me wrong. But the problem with general
practitioners is they’re only going to look for one or two things. They’re not going to
do a broad-spectrum analysis of the gut. And that’s really sad for you because you’re not
really going to get all the facts. It’s not really good.
So if you’ve been sick a long time in your tummy or you’ve had food allergies for years,
your diet’s down, it’s shrinking by the day, you’ve got lots of pain, fatigue, brain fog,
skin itching, all these sorts of things, then it’s important for you to get a proper analysis.
I hope that gives you a little bit of an insight into the testing and diagnosis of Blastocystis
hominis. And the treatment, we’ll talk about that coming up very soon. Thanks for checking
out my video.

    I have been diagnosed with Hashimoto's and have been suffering from chronic hives that come and go for many years. How great is the chance that I have Blasto? Should I start self-medicating without getting diagnosed?
