What is Blastocystis hominis?
The intestinal parasite Blastocystis hominis is a protozoan, which is a single-cell organism that is larger and more complex than bacteria. These types of parasites are capable of multiplying within the host. Blastocystis hominis infections occur directly via the faecal–oral route, with direct person-to-person transmission uncommon. Other common intestinal parasites include Dientamoeba fragilis, Entamoeba histolytica, Giardia intestinalis, Cryptosporidium parvum, cestodes (tapeworms), trematodes (flukes), hookworms, and various nematodes (roundworms).
What Are Blastocystis hominis Symptoms?
How Do You Get Blastocystis hominis?
Blastocystis hominis infections can occur from contaminated food, contaminated water, poor personal hygiene and travellers to tropical countries. Blastocystis hominis can be symptomatic and asymptomatic in people.
Blastocystis hominis Treatment
Blastocystis hominis is a pathogen which does not belong in your body. In our experience there are always symptoms that people experience when they have a Blastocystis hominis infection. These symptoms are not necessarily gut symptoms and disappear once the parasite has been eliminated. Unfortunately a lot mainstream Doctors tell clients that this parasite is normal and doesn’t need to be treated, or use medications that are proven to be unsuccessful. Parasites living in your body drain your energy and can affect your health on many different levels – emotionally, physically, mentally. In order for true healing to take place you need to remove the parasite and then heal your gut. Our Naturopaths work with your Doctors for the best treatments available to eradicate Blastocystis hominis from your body once and for all.
