this is about morning nausea when not pregnant. i have been having it with a few other sx for a few weeks now. i was blaming it on stress...but went online because it is getting worse.

this popped up and i'm not sure it is my exact problem...but i thought it should at least be put on here and myabe gael can say more about it.

"I have had this for 10 months now and it has been hellish. It started out with diarrhea and extreme nausea which would wake me up at 3am. It would last for most of the day but sometimes get a bit better towards the end of the day.

I lost 30 lbs in 2 months and landed in emergency 3 times for dehydration. They

***found a parasite called blastocystis and none of the Drs believed this was the cause. ***

They put me on antibiotics to rule it out and one made me way worse and the other (metronidazole) made me worse while taking it but then the diarrhea slowly disappeared and the blasto was eradicated

After numerous tests, they found out my gallbladder was completely non-functioning and that I had a slight gastrtitis/ulcer. I started to eat an ulcer diet (no caffeine, alcohol, low fat) which helped a bit. Had my gallbladder out (they found no problems with it when examined so no idea why it stopped except maybe the rapid weight loss)

-anyways...long story short is that I am still feeling nauseated in the mornings and sometimes when I'm tired. It is much less severe now and definitely gets worse with alcohol and caffeine so my doctor thinks the stomach is just taking a long time to heal - I hope this is the case as it is
very persistent! "

I had blastocystis hominis several yrs ago. My symptoms were abdominal cramping and foul smelling, greasy looking stools. I was put on flagyl which cleared it up. I just went through extensive stool testing for parasites which was negative but it did show vegetable fibers which means I am not properly digesting my food as well as extensive yeast.

Have you tried eliminating dairy? Food allergy testing may be very beneficial. I was amazed at how many foods I eat every day that I am allergic to.

I have been battling blastocystis for 2 years now after drinking contaminated well water on vacation for a week and then having our own house well water go bad 6 months later. My immune system was compromised at the time because I had breast cancer.

It can be hard to get rid of. Stool testing from meetametrix found it in me after I also had EDS and muscle testing showing it was there. I also later had Dr. Cahill in manhattan (parasitologist) find it in me through a test he does in his office which is much more accurate than stool testing. Unfortunately he doesn't think blasto is pathogenic (he is dead wrong) but at least he is good at finding whatever is there.

There is a forum called PPTU which may give you some info as well as the bad bugs site which you may have already found.

What is helping me the most is rifing. I think eventually I will get rid of it through that. My kids have gotten rid of it through rife and herbs.

When I drank the contaminated water when on vacation I was so nauseous I lost about 12 pounds. Rife is what started getting me slowly back to health.

It could also be giardia or some other food/water borne parasite. They all can cause headache and dizziness and nausea.

If you are near NYC, Dr. Cahill would be a good start for you. Half of the battle is figuring out what it is.

Ip, I just saw this thread. Nausea and your other symptoms are def on the parasite symptom list. Where there is one parasite there are usually a lot more.

Parasites can take a long time to get rid of and tx needs to be ongoing. Are you on any antiparasitics?

I got rid of this parasite by using 500mg alinia (10 days at 2x/day). Good luck.

When I used to wake up in the morning or at 3-4-5am in the morning and feel sooooo bad - long after I no longer had any Lyme & Co. infections --- I went to Dr. K. and he said "your liver is hard as a rock - you have liver flukes --- do MMS enemas staring with one drop, etc. That is what I did and I am no longer feeling terrible in the morning: I simple had an overloaded liver that could not cope with liver flukes, parasites, etc.

In less than a week on MMS I felt better and now after close to 3 months on MMS I feel great.

I am still disposing of some very tiny stuff - parasites that I have probably carried through many years.

Gael is right - you need to treat parasites. But choose the suitable way to do it. Often it takes some pharmas along with herbals or other. And do not forget that the dead parasites and the metals they are releasing need to be addressed with colonics, again and again; enemas will take care of some, but not nearly what a colonic accomplishes. You will believe it when you see the liver dumps that may not happen until 2nd or 3rd colonic.

It's useless to try address a certain parasite, because they mutate into things that we probably have no name for. So keep parasites in the forefront. Symptoms do not go away as long as we carry an overload of parasites. The liver certainly does not appreciate it. I finally gave in when I started to have nightsweats as if I had all sorts of infections: no, zero, only some liver flukes and parasites.

I have posted Dr. K.'s parasite protocol well thought out and used all over the world by other physicians and it was eliminated by moderators
Don't use the blood brain barrier crosser pharmaceuticals too early. The order of the protocol, or at least energetic testing to assure which is the right one, is important.

Don't continue pushing pharmas or herbals if you do not feel at least somewhat fair by clearing out the dead debris. It is useless while you retain all the toxins. If you do MMS, go back to less and work up again.

So GiGi,

Does this mean that one needs their detox pathways - methylation stuff, especially - working before treating parasites?
