Blastocystis Hominis Natural Treatment: How to clear up “Blasto Rash”-hives, rashes, and eczema

Did you know that rashes can be caused by a parasite? From seeing over 100,000 patient visits in the past 34 years at my Natural Medicine Clinic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, many of whom have digestive, thyroid, and skin issues, I have seen many Blastocystis symptoms. And I have noticed a lot of patients testing positive for a parasite called Blastocystis Hominis. So I decided to investigate the Blastocystis side effects, immune system effects, and related guy symptoms, and this has led me to look into how to get rid of Blastocystis Hominis naturally.

What is Blastocystis Hominis?

Blastocystis Hominis is a single-cell protozoa amoeba that can cause various issues. Apart from the usual gut symptoms of abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, and IBS, it can cause nausea, abdominal cramps, skin problems, aches and pains, fatigue, and thyroid issues.

In fact, in one study that performed stool tests on patients with hives, 61% tested positive for Blastocystis Hominis. This was compared to stool test results in the control group, where only 8% had Blastocystis without hives. 

A Story from My Clinic

I recently had a patient who woke up to lesions all along her back. Naturally, she was quite concerned and turned to several different topical solutions, but it would not go away. Once arriving at my office, we did stool testing, in which she could take home a stool test kit and collect her stool over a few days. Our results found she was positive for the Blastocystis Hominis gut parasite.

I placed her on an eight-week treatment protocol that quickly cleared up her lesions. While most doctors and dermatologists would diagnose this condition as eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, or chronic hives, I could look internally and get to the root cause of her problem. Instead of prescribing lotions, internal steroids, or steroid creams, I could prescribe a treatment that truly resolved it.

What is the Treatment? 

So what treatment is recommended for knocking out Blastocystis Hominis? Below are the steps I help my patients take to treat this gut parasite and, ultimately, their skin conditions:

Diet for Blastocystis Hominis Treatment

Diet is an important first step in eliminating this Blastocystis parasite. Most parasites like Blastocystis feed on sugar, grains, and starches. So, even if someone is taking a natural product or medication, eating a bunch of sugar (which is standard to a typical diet) can prevent them from working. 

So I recommend a diet program I created called The FreeDiet®. Not only is it free of gluten, but it’s free of gluten, grains, sugar, yeast, dairy, eggs, soy, legumes, nightshades, and processed food. These can all be contributors to gut inflammation and a leaky gut; therefore, avoiding them will starve the yeast and parasites you are working to kill. While also hopefully reducing associated symptoms and possibly healing your gut and immune system. So try to avoid those foods and instead incorporate plenty of quality proteins, vegetables, and healthy fats. 

On a Personal Note

I created this diet years ago, around the time I too had this Blastocystis Hominis parasite and was experiencing skin and digestive issues, fatigue, joint pain, and related symptoms, and then tested positive for both Hashimoto’s thyroiditis and rheumatoid arthritis. 

It took me years to figure out how to eliminate it because natural products and even prescription drugs were not working. My gut was not healing, and the symptoms were not going away. However, after several trial and error attempts, I found that combining The FreeDiet® with a specific supplement regimen cleared up my Blastocystis symptoms and gut issues.

Sticking to this treatment plan, all symptoms, gut issues, and autoimmune conditions resolved, and I have yet to see this parasite return in over 12 years. 


Another important aspect of tackling this parasite and associated symptoms (as well as Candida, or yeast, overgrowth) is supplementation. I use five supplement protocols called the Blasto Pack. You can click here to view, and the protocol is under the details tab. 

These include:

  • ProbioSupreme SB (Saccharomyces Boulardii) – A specific type of probiotics to fight the Blastocystis
  • Yeast Defeat™ 
  • Microb-Balance™ 
  • N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine – An amino acid that helps to break down biofilms and allows treatments to work better
  • C Bioflavonoids 500

These can be taken daily over a three-month period, with some seeing results even faster. In addition to these, I recommend the Functional Five™ supplements and a smoothie in the morning that combines protein, fiber, essential fats, and FreeGreens™ that, provide a way to nourish and cleanse the gut, immune system, and body. 

As the yeast and parasites are dying off, it’s important to clear them out of your system. The idea is as the parasite clears up, the skin clears up.

Seek Help and Stay Informed

So, if you have any immune system, abdominal pain, skin, or digestive issues or know anyone who does, feel free to share this information. For more information on this topic, please check out my book, The FreeDiet®, here.

Another option is downloading and following The FreeDiet® Phase 1 food chart and starting the foundational supplements. If you have specific questions regarding how to get rid of Blastocystis Hominis naturally, please reach out. I look forward to working with you!


  • Thank goodness I found this
    I would like to know where to a Canadian and I can’t seem to get help locally. I have all of those symptoms and recently just developed in the last 2 yrs cold uticaria plus psoriasis on elbows.

  • Thank you for preparing this video. You said you would add a couple links “below,” however, I don’t see any links.

  • I love your emails, Dr Rofrano. They are so helpful. I just wish I lived near you so I could visit you. I live in Sydney, Australia. But I still I learn from your YouTubes and I have your wonderful book The FreeDiet.
    Thank you

  • Hello, I have anal itching and have ruled out fungus with a Fungal cream, have tried prescription steroid creams, an oral steroid, and multiple other creams. The only cream that helps contains Lidocaine. I just tested positive for this parasite but read that it’s very common and typically doesn’t cause symptoms. This is my ONLY symptom. Everything else is normal. I already eat a very clean diet with none of the foods you mention avoiding above. I read that some medications can help such s ivermectin and metrodinizole. I can see that there are not a lot of studies and data around this parasite but ivermectin worked in one in vitro study at a high concentration. I’m not against supplements but what you mention above is a lot. Can you confirm that you don’t believe medication would work? Thank you.

    • I have helped many patients clear up blastocystis and each one of them had symptoms. Anal itching is a common one. Enter blastocystis on our blog and there are at least 4 other videos if you need additional information. I’m sure medication works for some people, it just didn’t work for me or many of the patients I see.

    I began treatment under Dr. Tom and Dawn in early August. I had a shopping list of complaints. Many of them I'd been dealing with for 25 to 30 years. Traditional doctors told me again and again that I was perfectly... healthy, implying that much of this was in my head. Dr. Tom ran numerous tests based on his hunches, and I'm glad that he did. Tests revealed many things never uncovered by any of my previous doctors. I began feeling relief from some symptoms within a few days and gradually began feeling relief from most others. I'm about 5 weeks into the program and feeling so much better. I had concerns about sticking it out because it is definitely a vastly different way of doing things and it is quite an investment. But there is a light at the end of the tunnel. This is the first time in my many years of trying to get better that I can actually see that light. I am excited to update in another few months because I feel certain that I'll be able to report that I am fully healed. Thank you Dr. Tom and Dawn (and Angelika). You all are an amazing team and I feel blessed that you all are working so hard to get me well. Thank you!!read more

    I am beyond grateful for Dr. Tom and his staff!! Kayla, Dawn and Alexandra have gone out of their way to help me and I know my situation hasn't been easy. I came to Dr. Tom with a long list of issues and hopeless. I am... proud to say that a year later and I am thriving. I went from not working out at all to working out 4 days a week, plus yoga. I traveled around the country to many holistic doctors and he has been the only way to help me see major progress. My only regret is that I didn't meet him sooner. I feel taken care of and so grateful for my experience with more

    Dr. Tom Rofrano's Natural Medicine Clinic has changed my life. I came to him with an enlarged thyroid nodule, pain in my joints and tendons, increasing weight, imbalanced hormones, a leaky gut and so many other issues... that I didn't even know were causing my symptoms. After extensive testing, he put me on a tailored protocol as well as the Free Diet (trademarked) to help clear up my symptoms. I have been on this protocol for 5 months and I have never felt better. I have more energy, reduced stress, overall happiness, no pain in my joints, clear skin, better menstrual cycles, no pms symptoms of irritability or mood swings. I lost 20 lbs and my gut is healing. All with supplements, dietary changes, and environmental changes to my daily life. I emphatically endorse this method and hope everyone seeks him out. He got to the root cause of my symptoms and I am on a path to heal myself holistically without traditional medicine. In addition to Dr. Rofrano, everyone in his clinic is extremely helpful and generous with their time. I have never met a more caring team of support from a clinic. Thank you to Kayla and Angelika and all the NMC support team for what they have done for me. In addition, I don't even live nearby and Dr. Rofrano and his team have worked to ship all my tests and supplies to me, Zoom my follow up visits, and help me find what I need in my area. So grateful to them all.-Amanda Baileyread more

    I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2001 and have had severe abdominal swelling since 2008. People continuously asked me when my baby was due and I was never pregnant. I didn't want to be in public or go to work... because I didn't feel well and I was extremely self conscious of my body shape. Since starting the FreeDiet in March 2021, I have lost 12 pounds. I am no longer bloated and all my coltis symptoms have disappeared. After completing extensive bloodwork and testing Dr. Rofrano discovered that I am allergic to Gluten and Candida. I knew I was allergic to Gluten and knew that I struggled with Candida but never realized I could be allergic to Candida as well. After eliminating anything fermented from my diet, I feel pain free in my stomach. Food is enjoyable once again. I am very happy with my improved health and energy thanks to this diet, supplements and to Dr. Rofrano. My colleagues are commenting and how healthy and young I look. I highly recommend Dr. Rofrano and all his more

    Testosterone gain of 50% in 30 days with NO drugs. DR. Tom’s nutrition and supplement guidance is foolproof, however, it’s up to you to do the work. My bloodwork improved amazingly across the full spectrum. If you want... to be healthy and actually see the lab results go to NMC!read more

    I was in a very sickly state with very high blood pressure, Epstein Barr Virus, severe digestive issues, IBS, and constant UTI ‘s that were always back to back. My cholesterol was 244 and my inflammation was off the... charts / extremely high!!!! I decided to read “free diet” book written by Dr Rofrano. It made total sense, so I decided to proceed with the blood tests. This is when I discovered all my lab work was in a very poor state. He uncovered a lot of information and made me aware of why my health was poor and why I was feeling badly!!! I started to follow the diet and take the suggested supplements. Within 5 to 6 weeks everything turned around for me. My labs were nearly perfect in all the previously scary areas where the numbers were completely out of range. I am feeling much better and I am raving about the free diet / supplements that Dr Rofrano can offer you for your specific issues. he is gifted to know exactly how to help each person deal with their health issues. I am grateful to God I found him and had the initiative to move forward!!!! PTL !!!!read more

    My health had been declining over the last 5 years. I have consulted with no less than 6 naturopaths. Non of which was able to help me regain my health. After more recent lab tests my Feritin level had skyrocketed at... which point now I was worried. Every one I spoke to said the only option was to do leeching (where they draw out your blood periodically). That did not sound like an option. Then I found Dr Rofrano. To be honest I was extremely skeptical as I have spend lots of money and time with other naturopaths only to end up right back at the beginning. However I had nothing to loose (other than $$$) I decided to give him one try before I competely gave up. I can say I am 100% happy!!!... After an in-depth consultation, and extensive testing. Many deficiencies were uncovered not to mention, sensitivities, thyroid, hormones, high cholesterol the list goes on and on. We began a supplement regiment to get things back on track. Its now 6 weeks later. My labs have significantly improved, my cholesterol is now in normal range, my feritin level has significantly dropped and I am feeling a lot better. Its still early and my body has more healing to do. I am ecstatic to say we are on the right track. My labs have never looked better. If you are just not feeling well and really need to find a solution would highly recommend you contact the Natural Medicine Clinic and speak to Dr Tom Rofrano.. you will NOT be more

    Stay away. Extremely expensive for results. All they want to do is throw pills at you for thousands of dollars.. Not worth the money.Find someone who takes an interest in your health not your wallet.
