How to Heal Fungal and Parasite Infections with Paul Chek

I love Paul Chek, he's one of the most on to it, balanced, holistically approached and not-afraid-to-drop-a-truth-bomb guy I know (well not personally, but you get the idea). 

He's been around the fitness, nutrition, lifestyle circle for many years now and has amazing books, DVDs, programs and runs Holistic Lifestyle Coach training. His classic book, 'How to Eat, Move and Be Healthy' is one I refer to often.

In my efforts to heal up and restore my tummy ecology and my health I've come across these (props to Sean Croxton at Underground Wellness for also being awesome)... It's a 5 part video series with some info about healing fungal and parasite infections from Paul's latest masterpiece - some we've heard before, some stuff we may not want to admit... 

He covers diet, mindset, why we get parasites and fungal infections, emotional stuff and why these situations can be used as teachers. 

Give it a watch:

SIBO and Blasto December Update

Aka the latest ventures in digestive wellness.

My laptop cracked the shits. Won't start so sadly no decent posts till it's sorted :-( But I wanted to quickly stop by and post an update as I'm feeling much better than I was last post!

I finally got what I needed to treat SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth which I've written about before). The doctor has put me on an antibiotic, a herbal and a probiotic. I've also added some extra support for gut healing and energy:

Keflex (Cephalexin 500mg) 3 x per day
Bactrex (Metagenics) 2 x 2 x per day
Probiotics (Metagenics) AM + PM

Multivitamin (Biomedica)
Liver Pills (Dr Ron's)
Colostrum (Colostrum Health)
Cascara Sagrada Tincture

After unsuccessful antibiotic treatment for Blastocystis I wanted to give my body extra support while treating SIBO. Boost all my tanks so my body has a bit more to withdraw from during this eradication.

While my gut symptoms have remained the same, my fatigue has decreased and I've got some energy back woot woot!! I still have 3 days left on this protocol...

This came into my inbox today from the guys over at SCD Lifestyle. A great 12 minute vid on what SIBO is, how to test for it and how to treat it: link here. I highly encourage you to give it a watch.

I go see my old doctor next week to discuss second round treatment for Blastocystis with another line of medication outlined by the Centre of Digestive Disease in Sydney. They have 2 protocols they like you to try - if neither of them are successful final treatment is an expensive procedure and colonic infusion of a super effective solution. After a few years of experimenting with colonics and enemas I'm no stranger to having tubes inserted into my behind, it's the price tag that comes with this treatment that puts me off at this point (I hear it's in the range of $1500, plus you still have to get to Sydney). But everyone that's done it has had a successful result. 

A different combo of medication, extra herbal support and a less depressed and hopeless attitude will hopefully do the trick! Otherwise I make the expensive journey to Sydney... It may seem drastic but I want my life back and I want Blasto gone so I can finally move forward.

Wishing you an amazing holiday season, be safe, be kind to yourself, cherish your loved ones and I'll post again in Jan. Please do email me or find me on Facebook if you have any questions. This journey is tough enough and there's no reason to do it alone xx
