Dr. Walt,
I've been struggling with parasites now for about 8 years. I was diagnosed with ascaris lurbricoides that were also fertilized. I also had the test done at the Dowell Lab Az. If I understand correctly, from reading the bb about other cases, you can have more than just one type of parasite?
This test was done in 1993. I has a Comprehensive Dig stool analysis done in 1992(Candida 4+),1996(Candida parapsilosis 4t)(also e-coli2+, enterobacter cloacae 2+, staph aureus 2+). I had the stool test for digestive markers done through a Chiropractor and they had no suggestions for the high count of candida but for natural means. I am wondering what you think of Lamisil med. How long would i take it for and what dosage? I feel I need something strong. I went on Vermox for the worms, but I feel that they are still there in my body. Specifically in the duoderum because my chest hurts alot of times. I also cough up alot of mucus and have a chronic cough. I'm spacey alot of the time. Also a bunch of other things. Thanks for listening Nadine

I just wanted to add that I started getting sick 8yrs ago, but I had a bought with Clyamidia, Trigamonis, and Gardnerella a yr. before. My question is could any of these STD's reside in the intestinal tract? I also read that Clymidia can be more serious is contracted from a foreign country. Since then I cleaned up my act, but I would like to know if any of these can reside in the intestines and if I could pass it on to my husband?

While you're waiting for Walt to answer, I'll throw in my two cents worth. Killing the candida is just one piece of the puzzle. The other pieces are why did you get it and how to build up the intestinal terrain so that stuff like that can't live there anymore.

Walt will tell you that at least one reason why you got it is because you also have leaky gut syndrome (LGS). Killing the candida won't solve all your problems because your intestinal terrain is not in good shape. In other words, you'll get it back because you haven't changed anything.

There are several ways to change your intestinal terrain. Walt will also tell you that you need to start skilled relaxation 20 minutes two times a day. That will allow your body to release the stored stress and get blood and nutrients flowing again.

On top of the skilled relaxation, what I did was see a good complementary health care practioner who used homeopathics and supplements to basically weed, seed, and feed my intestinal tract. Because I had such a good experience, I would recommend you finding a chiropractor who specializes in metabolics and kinesiology. Ask whoever you find, how they treat candida and decide how you want to handle it. Your kidney and liver will need support too as those bad critters die off. The die off can be pretty intense. So don't get too discouraged if you don't feel better right away.

Good Luck!
Sharon

Hi, Anonymous.

Certainly they can. However, the normally healthy GI tract, with the normal ecology of organisms, is so inimical to disease causing organisms that they cannot live there.

In addition, the person's normal immune system is the thing that keeps them from getting stuff like this, so, if your husband is healthy it would be VERY hard for him to get this from you.

Remember, these organisms are everywhere in our environment. Why do we not all have them infecting us?

Hi, Nadine.

Do you smoke?

What have you done to rid yourself of your LGS?

Even the CDC (in Atlanta) says that the average person in this coundty has 3 identifiable parasites in their GI tract;
and this is with totally incompetent local labs that only find one out of fifty test parasites placed in a specimen.

Dowell labs find one in five which is at least ten times the accuracy of local labs. By the way, I have lost my address for Dowell Labs. If you have it, I would appreciate your posting it on the BB.

Press on your chest where you feel your pain and see if those spots are tender.

Let me know the above information.

Walt

Thanks for promptness. I don't know how you do it all. Maybe because you have a health digestive tract. In regards to my chest pain the pain seems to be in the center where the two rib cage bones connect. It could be my asthma or maybe the cleansing. I started to go on a Candida diet. I'm wanting to go on the whole foods diet but it will take awhile to rec the book. I'm not sure what kinds of foods those necessarily are? As for LGS I'm sure I have that, because my food is not always processed when going to the bathroom. Also alot of mucus. I'm going to be ordering your book. I also was wondering about the Lamisil med I read it somewhere in the intrnt that it's becoming the best to use for Candida. How do you feel about going on the diet and taking meds for Candida? The pain in my chest does not hurt when I press it. The Address for the Dowell Lab is now changed. I called the clinic where I had the test done and they told me that the women (Lucrece)? is now retired, so she is no longer in business. Then the recptnist told me that the INSTITUTE OF PARASITIC DIEASES is the place that took over. I asked if they were just as reputable? She said yes. There address is 3530 E. Indian School Rd. SUITE 3 Phoenix Az 85018. Take Care God Bless You.

Walt,
I guess I had my question answered by Lisa about the Lamisil Medication. About my chest I just always have a conjested cough I don't know if it is from Candida. I'm on nystatin now I seem to be more conjested. Could this be from the med? Have a Good Day :) Keep Smiling
God Bless and Take care..

Hi, Nadine.

Perhaps your chest pain is GERD. That would not be unexpected with your LGS.

If this were MY problem, I would see the closest Certified Rolfer in consultation and have him work the first session on my rib cage. If my symptoms immediately went away, this is costochondritis and not GERD. I would continue to focus on the LGS before I spent much time on the C-RS.

See the glossary for any unfamiliar terms.

Thanks for the information about Dr Dowell. I hope that whoever took this over IS as accurate. Most times the accuracy goes way down when the "master" retires. If I were still practicing, I would send a dozen or so specimens to them and send duplicates to Great Smokies Labs. to see how they compared.

Thanks,
Dr. Walt!! For your expert advice on the chest problem. I sent out for your book today. Hope I see it soon!! I'd like to thank everyone else that answered my Question about Lamisil!! What a dangerous med.. I'll take Ann's advise about reading up on meds. But when you have Candida you have brain fog alot. I use to look up every med but just don't always think of it anymore. So many different aches and pains with Candida. Oh, I had another question, when I eat whole foods or any food for that matter I don't seem to get full can this be from the yeast?

EVERYONE TAKE CARE AND GOD BLESS..HAVE A GOOD HOLIDAY!!

Hi, Nadine.

The food thing is more likely to an abberation of the hypothalamic hormone that has to do with satiety (has been in the news just this past week). This is commonly caused by the same fight or flight storage that ultimately causes the bracing and the LGS which is behind every case of C-RS.

Hope this is making sense to you.

Walt
