Parasites! Disgusting, right? But, actually much more common than you think! There are lots of different parasites but today I wanted to highlight Blastocystis hominis (aka Blasto) because it was one of the parasites I had on my first GI MAP.
Here are a few facts for you:
I was a prime target for this pathogen and others because my stomach acid was very low due to the H. Pylori. Stomach acid is one of our first line defenses against pathogens.
I would have never known I had this parasite if it weren’t for the GI MAP test by @dxlabsolutions. I am so grateful that @theorganicsouth introduced me to the test because not only did it change my life and start my path to healing, I now get to help others do the same!!
You don’t have to live with symptoms and be told that there is nothing wrong with you. It’s simply a matter of getting to the root cause which is only possible through proper testing and not guessing! Reach out if you are ready to journey there!
