What Is Blastocystis Hominis

August 23, 2019

Greetings. It’s New Zealand naturopath, Eric
Bakker, author of Candida Crusher and formulator of the Canxida range of dietary supplements.
Thanks for checking out my video today. Today, I’m going to teach you about Blastocystis
hominis, a parasite that tends to affect quite a lot of people that I see. People that consult
with me through Skype or Face Time, they often talk about digestive problems. And a lot of
this will entail blasto, which we’re going to talk about in this series on Blastocystis
hominis. Before you check out the video, please click
on the link on this video right now, so you can download my free report. And also, don’t
forget to subscribe because I really enjoy making these videos and, particularly, if
I’ve got a lot of subscribers, I enjoy it even more. Let’s get into it.
What is Blastocystis hominis? It’s a weird name. It sounds almost like some kind of space
creature. Many people are confused and I often get asked what blasto is, so I’ve got a question
here from a guy called Robert Conlon in Yazoo City, Mississippi. Robert, I’m going to tell
you a bit about blasto. What it is. How it affects you. What the causes are. What the
signs and symptoms are. But we’re going to make these videos in chunks. We’re not going
to just do one huge big video on blasto. Blasto is basically a parasite that really
affects people quite bad in some cases. It can really affect you seriously, your intestinal
tract, and create a lot of different signs and symptoms. It’s passed from a human being
or from an animal to a host. All sorts of animals can get affected by blasto. Rats,
chickens, mice, cows, dogs, cats, domesticated animals, wild animals. It’s a small parasite
with an ultrahard shell. In fact, it can live for long periods of time outside the intestinal
tract, so it can be picked up through soil or water or transferred from animal fecal
matter to a human quite easily on different surfaces. It can be picked up through diaper
changing. It can be picked up through utensil sharing. Water is the common contamination
source of blasto. Blasto is very common throughout the United
States. It’s in Europe. It’s in most developed nations now. And in the last 20 years, it’s
become a serious problem in a lot of countries. It’s amazing how many stool tests I’ve performed
on patients and seen that they have a Blastocystis hominis infection. I really want you to check
out this video series on blasto and try to get your head around it because it could be
affecting you right now. You could be going to a doctor complaining of digestive system
problems, and the doctor may not even test for blasto.
This is a really important video series to highlight in terms of personal hygiene. Why
you need to wash your hands and be careful when you go traveling in different countries.
The type of water that you drink. The type of food you eat. Personal hygiene is a very
big thing. Another route you can pick it up from is swimming
in municipal swimming pools or drinking water from wells in certain countries where there’s
not a lot of hygiene or sanitation. Just be very careful when you go traveling because
water is probably the easiest source for you to pick up Blastocystis. As I mentioned, it
can live for long periods of time outside of the digestive tract. It mainly affects
the large intestine. And we’ll soon see in another video all the signs and symptoms of
a blasto infection. It’s easily transmitted from human to human
or from animal to human, and personal hygiene is certainly one way that you can really prevent
this thing from happening. I’ve seen many men, women, and a lot of children with blasto
infections. And in some cases, the infection lasts for one or two months. In some cases,
it can last for 10 years. I’ve had patients in many countries around
the world with blasto infections. And I’m going to show you in this video series how
to nail this infection, how you can get rid of it. Not only how to get rid of it, but
how you can prevent getting it in the future. Please stay tuned to this series on Blastocystis
hominis. Did I say subscribe? Please subscribe to my
channel. I’ll catch you in the next video. Thanks for tuning in.

    Doctor…. would this "Canxida Remove" remove BOTH giardia and blasto together?

    Dear Doctor, thank you for your info. I ordered your product for
    Bastocystis, but it seems to be quite aggressive for my stomach. You
    recommend to take small doses in such cases. What is your data related
    to dosage, period of treatment and EFFICACY? Has it been published
    somewhere? It is important to know that if I continue irritating my poor
    stomach, it is for a good cause.

    Thank you for all the information on your website and the videos, they were an amazing help and very much appreciated.
    I have a few questions regarding the Canxida range that i was unable to find the answer to. My Two year old son was recently diagnosed with a blasto after a stool test. He was prescribed antibiotics and we are yet to give them to him as i believe we can find a better way. (hopefully i just have!) He was a number of symptoms and we are hoping to help him feel well again. Is there anything different you would recommend for a toddler? i.e. dosage or ways for him to take the product as he would not be able to take a tablet. (crush them up in honey or something of that nature perhaps??)
    Also i would like my husband and myself to take them however i am pregnant. Am i able to take them while i am pregnant?

    Any information you could give me would be greatly appreciated.
