A recent stool test revealed too-high levels of all of these. My practitioner is Yasko-trained and is starting me on several herbs, several of Yasko's RNA formulas, Biotin, Vita Organ and a couple other things for a 3 month "intensive" protocol. But in reading the badbugs.org website, I'm questioning whether I will need prescriptions for this. I have read a little about Klinghardt's protocol which does use drugs.
Mostly I'm happy that I took this test and found something that could be causing my CFS symptoms. I just wish I understood more about these parasites and that there was more consensus on how to treat them.
I'm spending a lot of money, and I've been stressing out about how much money I'm spending on trying to find the solution to my symptoms. I am in good amount of debt and instead of paying it off it's getting bigger. I make a good salary so I can pay if off IF I can keep working....But I sort of came to the conclusion that I would rather file for bankrupcy if it turns out I can't work anymore, then to resign myself to feeling this way for the rest of my life.
(Wow that turned into more catharsis then I had planned on, thanks for listening)!
