Can clearing up the parasite Blastocystis Hominis parasite fix your IBS and Hashimoto’s autoimmune thyroid condition? I’m going to talk about how I was able to help a recent patient that was dealing with these issues.
My name is Dr. Tom Rofrano from the Natural Medicine Clinic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida. I’ve had the opportunity to see over 100,000 patient visits over the last 36 years, many of whom have thyroid issues. I had a recent patient in his early 30s who had stomach issues his whole life: gas, bloating, diarrhea, constipation, belching; all typical IBS symptoms. On top of that, he had fatigue, brain fog, high blood pressure, and was overweight. He was feeling miserable.
Searching for Root Causes
I ran comprehensive lab tests. The five main areas I check for include: deficiencies, toxins, infections, food reactions, and hormonal imbalance. He had findings in all those areas. One result that stood out was a parasite called Blastocystis Hominis, which is a microscopic protozoan/amoeba parasite that can wreak havoc on the body.
Blastocystis Hominis Treatment
This result was very familiar to me because years ago, I had Blastocystis as well as Hashimoto’s during my health struggles. It took me quite a long time to figure out how to get rid of it, but I did. I developed a protocol including diet and supplements. As I worked to eliminate the Blastocystis Hominis, my Hashimoto’s cleared up, IBS improved, in addition to all the other health problems I was dealing with.
Since I had so much success personally and with many other patients, I was excited to help treat this patient. The first step we took to treat the parasite was to follow a very specific gluten free diet as this patient was gluten sensitive. However, I have found that a gluten free diet by itself just doesn’t work because you’re still eating grains—rice, corn, gluten free pastas, and breads.
Enter The FreeDiet®
These parasites thrive on sugar and carbs. I developed a diet called The FreeDiet®, because it if free of gluten, grains, sugar, yeast, dairy, eggs, soy, legumes, nightshades, and processed foods. All those foods most commonly responsible for inflammation, gut, thyroid, and other chronic health issues. I put this patient on The FreeDiet® and to summarize, he had a smoothie for breakfast, for lunch and dinner he could choose from chicken, fish, meat, vegetables, and plenty of healthy fats.
The FreeDiet® book goes over the diet in more detail, and you can go here for your complimentary copy of The FreeDiet® phase one food chart.
Supplements for Blastocystis Hominis
As far as the supplement protocol, I started with a group of supplements I call the Blasto Pack™ that includes a specific probiotic with saccharomyces boulardii, Microb-Balance™, Yeast Defeat™, NAC, and vitamin C with bioflavonoids. The Blasto Pack™details page contains the exact protocol.
Then I added in the Functional Five™, which includes ActivMulti™, OmegaSorb™3X fish oil, D3 5000 +K2, Magnesium Malate, and the probiotic that’s included in the Blasto Pack. The FreeDiet® super Smoothie is important in the morning because you’re clearing your body out as the parasite is dying off, and the smoothie contains essential fats, fiber, fruits and vegetables, and protein to help nourish and cleanse your system.
Seeing Success with the Treatment
In just over three months we repeated the lab test and the Blastocystis Hominis parasite was gone. This was exciting to see because I’ve been able to help a lot of people with this, but it took me over 10 years to get rid of it myself through trial and error and once I developed the proper protocol, it took just a matter of a few months for me to get rid of the Blasto. I was excited to see the lab results, and his symptoms cleared up: the abdominal pain, bloating, gas, constipation, diarrhea, brain fog, and fatigue.
On top of that, he lost 38 pounds over six months. His blood pressure dropped 36 points into normal range. Many of his blood markers that were off also improved, and in three months hie Hashimoto’s thyroid antibodies decreased 90 percent to normal and his ANA autoimmune marker decreased to normal.
