    Hi all, i was wondering if anyone could give me any advice on my metametrix GI results. Seems like i don't have candida which my doctor expected, but i have parasites instead.

    My plan is to get rid of the parasite, take leaky gut supplements, and start the methylation protocol. Im not sure if i should do them all at once or kill the parasite first? Maybe vitamins or minerals can feed the parasite?

    I've been taking activated charcoal and it has ben helping with my gut problems a lot. But i read somewhere that it take vitmains out your system. So i'm not sure whether i need to stop taking the charcoal when i start the methylation treatment.

    I was also wondering if i can start on the betaine HCL for low stomach acid, or should i avoid this for the parasite like with H.Pliori?

    Blastocystosis is a tough infection to get rid off, I am afraid. Wikipedia provides somo info on treatment.

    If it were me, I would try to get rid of the parasite first. That includes the betaine HCL, in my opinion.

    If taken at the same time, the charcoal will probably absorb some of the stuff you take together...

    In the results, I noticed that you also don't have much good intestinal flora. After getting ridding of the infection, I think it would probably be a good idea to consider a good and strong probiotic such as VSL #3.

    Good luck!

    Maybe you could look up Ivermectin. I read it on a lot of chronic illness fora.

    Hi sorry i didn't reply i have no internet at the moment and need to visit family to use theirs.

    Thanks for the info. Why would you avoid the Betaine, do you think it would irritate the parasite?

    Also did you notice it said there was another thing found under parasites?
    Can someone explain what this means:: "A taxonomy unavailable finding likely indicates an ingested protozoan and not a human parasite."

    And the part under fungi/yeast, it says it is probably ingested mold, i guess this is nothing to bother about then?

    Before taking betaine HCL, I think it makes sense to ensure your gut is free of "irritants" with the parasite being one. It is a cautionary thing more than anything else.

    I personally would not worry about the "taxonomy unavailable" bugs. As it says in the report, it is probably something you ingested.
