Natural Treatment for Digestive Parasite Blastocystis Hominis in Brisbane

Have you been diagnosed with parasite blastocystis hominis?
Or are you experiencing some bowel symptoms that feel “out of control”?

Some symptoms that may be caused by Blastocystis Hominis (let’s call it blaso for short), include:

  • Mushy stools, which can be a porridge like consistency
  • Bloating
  • Fatigue
  • Nausea
  • Lack of appetite
  • Diarrhoea
  • Excessive flatulence
  • Skin eruptions and rashes
  • And less common – joint pain and feeling feverish
  • Weight Loss

Sometimes you can also have low iron which doesn’t increase even if you are taking iron (but low iron can mean other imbalances as well).

Some people with blasto experience all of these symptoms while others can have one or a few of these symptoms.

How do we test to see if you have Blastocystis?

Firstly, we need to make sure that you have the parasite. There are lots of herbal treatments for “parasites” on the market, and while they may have a place, you want to make sure that you actually have something to treat first - or run the risk of killing off commensual organisms.

If you haven’t been tested by your GP, your Naturopath at Vibe Natural Health in Brisbane can easily test through a PCR multiplex test. Your 'poo' is sent off to a lab and we get the results within a three to four day turn around.

So how does a naturopath treat Blastocystis?

Some other treatments can leave your digestive system feeling stripped and very sensitive. Our naturopathic approach is as gentle as can be, while still being effective in saying good-bye to the parasites.

We use a combination of herbal and nutritional medicine to help your body to kill the parasites while improving the immunity of your gut. Lifestyle changes and dietary changes are also necessary. Avoiding foods that parasites love is paramount to saying good-bye to blasto forever. Increasing foods which they don’t love, such as our special fibre blend will help them to leave their home too!

Do you find yourself saying,

"I just don’t feel quite right"

After Blastocystis treatment, what next?

We do another 'Poo test' to make sure that they have been eradicated and then start to use herbal and nutritional medicine to heal the gut as the parasites have likely caused a lot of damage.

What to expect from your Naturopathy consultation

The best way to understand the cause of dysfunction in the body is to take a comprehensive health history. Your Naturopath will spend an hour with you at your first consultation asking questions about all the systems in your body – this gives us the framework to understand which areas of your body are working well and which areas need help.

Your Naturopath will give you an evaluation of your health, a plan for your treatment and then ask you in which order of priority you would like to treat your health issues. You will receive a hands on treatment and be given proactive recommendations to take home to improve your health.
