Hi everyone, My tenant had my well water tested and the results came back very high in coliforms. I bought this house in 2010 and my symptoms came on about a year after that so I have suspected molds at various points. Now I'm wondering about the water. Apparently the coliforms generally aren't dangerous but are indicators that the water has been compromised and other things have entered. I found this in a study Most water-borne human pathogens cause infections and human disease via ingestion of fecal contaminated water or food. Various human parasites and pathogens are transmitted in this way, including protozoa, virus and bacteria, transmitted via human fecal contamination of water used for drinking, bathing, recreation, harvesting of shellfish, or washing/preparation of foods. I'm wondering if this could be the cause of SIBO. I'm also wondering if the protozoas could be the cause of Babesia (instead of a tick bite) Does anyone have insight into either of these possibilities ? The article also talked about airborne water problems and I'm adding this in case it helps anyone. Additionally, some water-borne pathogens are transmitted via contaminated aerosols and enter the human body through the respiratory tract. Legionella pneumophila, the causative agent of legionellosis fatal respiratory pneumonia infection know as Legionnaire's Disease, is transmitted in this manner. Warm stationary domestic water found in air conditioner cooling towers, inadequately chlorinated swimming pools and spas, hot water heaters, respiratory therapy equipment and shower heads, have been identified as sources of Legionella infectious outbreaks.
