Posted in Flagyl on June 25, 2015

My maker passed away last month, and the action of his death was not exactly cancer, or termination cardiomyopathy, but it was more accurately a single-minded cdiff infection.

You see my endow or supply with a ~ was so ill and unable to erode, he actually contracted cdiff. His immune theory was so depressed cdiff took across in spite of no ABX exposure. The acute cdiff lead to uniform more weight loss, and he truly did not have the protein or calorie reserves to get well from that insult. He turned into a amass of bones unable to even acquire strength to use his lighter (he smoked till the end). I had to obtain him a lighter that did not enjoin any force, and later my natural bought an electric lighter. The tabefaction was gruesome, one of the ~ly emaciated patients i’ve ever seen in occurrence. The last week he was home the cdiff returned (antecedently treated in hospital) and he died in a few words after that. He was not eating more than maybe 300-500 calories for day, he was unable to sustain down any food (although when receiving of great price cardiac meds he could eat greater degree).  He died of an incapability to recover.

My mother did not conversion to an act infection control as she did not be aware of what cdiff is. My mother had compassionate symptoms of diarrhea that went at a distance naturally.

I, on the other hand, started developing progressively worse diarrhea individual week after my dad’s dissolution. I had recently taken ABX in march and perhaps stress as well viewed like preexisting flora issues allowed for further troubling and progressive clostridia problems. Not to cursory reference the chronic stress and fail i was going end for that whole week after my dad died. Rather than get better, this was getting worse, without going into a haphazard of TMI, it was pretty unwelcome after awhile. It seemed rather palpable i contracted excessive clostridia by apprehension care of my dad and it was worsening not improving.

I unquestionable time 2 vanco/antibiotic and obtained a 7 epoch course of flagyl.

Within a small in number days the diarrhea was gone (and has not inasmuch as returned, high five!).

What i did NOT await however was the flagyl had every impressive and hugely helpful effect up~ the body my baseline GI fail state. While pleasing flagyl, my stomach did not harm at all, it was always downright, i could take inositol w/o harass and uncomfortable bloating. Basically, the flagyl was surprising.
Within 2 days of stopping flagyl, the symptoms started to return. While the acute cdiff diarrhea did not return, the baseline GI problems did suggesting those pathogens are greater degree intractable/dormant.

Now, as you may be assured of if you read my blog ~ the sake of any length of time i bear written about SIBO and nebulous vegetable life overgrowth problems that have plagued me. I win painful distended abdomen, gas, fatigue, diarrhea at general condition of affairs, generally speaking my GI appears to feel pain with some type of overgrowth. Many years ago i hypothesized i might have giardia, later ~ward i wondered if SIBO or appropriate general colonic dysbiosis.

After contemplating the collect of helpful and hurtful factors, I count it is highly probable the produce of my symptoms is a symbiotic scanty intestine protozoa or parasite, probably giardia considered in the state of it is so common.

Vinegar is actual helpful to stop the symptoms. Vinegar is a ample spectrum antiseptic, but the key is it can only target pathogens localized to the minute intestine as it has no effects in the colon (it is absorbed). For some reason it never struck me that the act vinegar can help instantly to resolve the symptoms is characteristic that the pathogen lives in my narrow-minded intestine. Giardia, like many water parasites/protozoa, generate and live dormant in the narrow-minded intestine. Whatever pathogen i have, it is unintelligent intestine level, not large. In other accents, the problem is not some hippie paleo BS essence about “GI flora”, i have a close. up BASTARD living in my narrow-minded intestine. If otherwise were false, vinegar would have no antiseptic effect (and it does, a moderately beautiful potent one).

 Stress and doze deprivation and progesterone, and various other cortisol/immune depressants, self-reliance trigger a flare up. Giardia many times exists chronic/subacute as dormant cysts live in your interior. The healthy immune system keeps it suppressed however if the immune system drops, you be able to have more symptoms (bloating/cramp/aversion/pain/BM change). This is equivalence for course with any chronic infection, stress and sleep loss will attempt some degree of symptom flare.

Inositol is a MASSIVE trigger, certainly prolific. Whatever this pathogen is, it looooves to nom inositol i am telling you. Near instant gut pain and sedate physically visible upper gut distention. If i taste inositol, I must pair it by strong vinegar to avoid horrible intestine pain and bloating from a spike in metabolic activity of this pretended. In fact, the way i respond to inositol with such rapid and forcible small intestine flare up has entice me to conclude this pathogen grape-juice very specifically sequester inositol. In actuality, it is likely some of my fleshiness, PCOS and glucose intolerance might even be CAUSED by this pathogen stealing the inositol in normal foods to such a degree i become inositol depleted. 

I came to the model that the epidemic of obesity and diabetes, especially in recently modernized huntergatherers, might have ~ing related to something as unlikely as symbiotic parasitic infection with inositol sequestering parasites in the same state as Giardia.

Giardia, like many suppose that not most parasites, actually does set aside inositol from the host. It colonizes the stolid intestine specifically to steal nutrients. This bills of exchange states the parasite has limited phospholipid synthesis and depends on stealing inositol/choline netabolites from the host. It seems specific to giardia that it be possible to barely make its own phospholipids in the same state it will nom up all your inositol cholines.

” It is believed that G. lamblia has single limited ability to synthesize phospholipids, tardy-chain fatty acids, and sterols de novo; by consequence, this protozoan has developed a particular process to acquire lipids from the lipid-soft environment of the human small domestic, i.e. via deacylation/reacylation reactions (the Lands period) 77, 78.”

Lauric acid kicks its simpleton. Just as acetic acid wipes it to the end, taking concentrated coconut oil I would say is even MORE effective to close the door upon it down than vinegar. I hold avoided coconut oil due to in posse for hypoglycemia but lately my madcap sugar is almost always 90 with equal rea~n that is not an issue. I bring forth recently learned coconut oil is ready as effective if not more operative than vinegar to treat small inestine pathogens. Contrary to legend that “ketogenic diets are bad against the biome”, in the real globe science illustrates fats, particularly lauric tart, are potently antimicrobial and help microscopic intestine pathogens often occuring in obese patients.

Perhaps the reason so many glucose intolerant, diabetic, fatigued people desire success with coconut oil and keto is specifically for the reason that the SFA are killing off pathogens that prevail upon diabetes/igt, and steal important starch-sugar tolerance nutrients like choline and inositol.

Apart from the address antimicrobial effect of SFA notably lauric pricking, restricting glucose/carbs is also numerous to inhibit the growth of wholly small intestine parasites.

The sum of testimony points to a pathogen with the following characteristics:

Small internal localized

Really flourishes from inositol, suggesting its metabolism is pendent on exogenous phosphylipid and inositol

Metronadizole remains its life, absolutely tears it a renovated one that even inositol cant move it grow.

Acetic acid and Lauric acid shut it down

All in wholly it sounds like what i be the subject of is some rinky dink third earth waer protozoa, likely giardia, so ironically my capital intuition was probably correct. Only fails, cancer patients, HIV, and folks wtih anatomical abnormalities get SIBO. I in likelihood do not have SIBO. Parasites are not monstrous, they are, ironically, very natural and paleo. FACT: ifectious sickness takes out humans. Nothing is other thing paleo than an infection or toad-eater. Anyone who is healthy can gain giardia, anyone can have a chronic subacute giardiasis that ebbs and flows with what you eat and what you act . OTOH, only really obese diabetic fails with a fasting sugar of 400 and no immune system end up with candida of the internal.

It dawned on me as each amusing irony that so many profitable, glucose intolerant paleos tend to get intermittent shitting disorders that they THINK is more kind of “neolithic wheat intolerance ” while what they actually have A PALEO DISEASE, a third world water parasite. Their symptoms go better when they start eating coconuts and sarcastic out fiber/grains because fiber and grains are moneyed in IP6, and coconut oils/saturated fats blight its ass off, as does a bring down carb intake.

The reason people may obtain intermittent shitting disorder with gut anguish: Probably parasites. Its not some neolithic immune boggieman, the entertaining mockery is the cause of this is a actual paleolithic old old old infectious malady. I mean, only an HIV sick person is going to have acute clinical giardiasis with dehydration , vomiting, temp spike…but a single one reasonably health person can retain some cysts in their intestine, with weighty pain/bloating should they dare relish inositol rich foods (like the unfortunate “neolithic” grain and nut fiber) , or experience stress.

I just want to restate during the term of emphasis:

Parasites that are chronic/subacute may have existence one cause of obesity and diabetes esp in recently modernized hunger gatherers, who are more apt to have such parasites. They allure important nutrients like phosphylipids .

Magical neolithic kaplow is not the intellectual powers your gut hurts and you be obliged diarrhea. Paleolithic splendor is the reason. The neolithic is the only mind you’re not dead, because you have power to take some flagyl if you in reality need to. You can buy a zinc tablet and a vitamin D pill in like manner you dont end up looking like some of those gut busting africans with a wonderfully diverse microbiome.

So yes.

I mean, whether or not this pathogen IS giardia is having nothing to do with the matter. I’m sure its small intestine, and i’m sure its a symbiotic hanger-on, because only total fails get SIBO. It is agreeable a protozoa, i may have just had it my whole life. It might be why i had such immoral PCOS and glucose intolerance in occurrence, which was ironically unmasked when i began supplementing the inositol it has convenient been stealing from me forever.

At this state i have symptoms well controlled, given the confederacy of factors i know how to curb its growth. Simply taking zinc and vitamin D did most of the work… i.e. truly having a normal immune system has allowed my body to regulate it. However, I intend attached keeping a stash of flagyl ~ward hand in the event stress causes a dazzle up ;).

Infectious disease: quiescent a big deal
-Magical neolithic toxins chief to diarrhea: probably not as stale as getting giardia from your dog or cat.

All of those meds did not bear to be taken by one individual.
