    Thank you for posting this interesting article which highlights how blastocystis hominis can affect a persons healh. This protozoa and giardia were found in me. I did do the triple antibiotic therapy by Thomas Borody in Australia to no avail. I'm now looking at other remedies. Interestingly, someone on another list I am on picked up this protozoa in Peru and what finally got rid of his symptoms (cramping, gas, no fatigue) was a glass of red wine daily. He has since discontinued the red wine and the symptoms are gone. I know most of us with CFS don't tolerate alcohol but thought I'd throw that info out there FWIW.

    Which particular anti-protozoals did you include in the triple therapy?
