Q: Hi Amy,
Thanks for sharing Dr. Cahill’s contact information and for strongly encouraging me to see him when I was fearful of the cost and wavering. I went to see him yesterday and very glad that I did. He found TWO parasitic infections in me. They are e.histolytica and trichuris trichiura. Are these familiar to you and Anthony? I am to take three meds in succession:
1. Paromomycin 250 mg, 3 times a day for ten days, one day off
2. Timidazole 500 mg, two times a day for three days, one day off
3. Ivermectin 3 mg, two in the morning, two in the evening, one day only
Then, when finished with the meds, I return for testing again to Dr. Cahill.
Amy, how have you and Anthony maintained good gut bacteria when taking strong prescription drugs for parasitic infections? Probiotics? Cahill’s office said he is fine with probiotics but they could not say how much and when to take in relation to taking the drugs. How have you maintained the balance? Are either of these infections ones that you or Anthony had? Is there any malaise from “Die Off”?
I am grateful to have found Dr. Cahill because of you. Thank you so much! I cannot imagine continuing to live with these infections, and not knowing they are there and continuing to feel ill in my intestines, tired and lethargic without the proper diagnosis. I am hoping to get over both of these infections now and forever! Dr Cahill said that the ability I had to pinpoint the changes that I felt in my body and that I was able to clearly articulate was very helpful in him being able to more clearly identify the problem. He was very nice too!
A: I’m so very happy for you! Wonderful!
If that’s what Dr. Cahill told you to take, I would go with that… likely you have by now. How are you feeling? I know its not fun during the medication period, though with rebuilding your gut flora, and not reinfecting, you should start feeling much better.
Die off been strong? I can imagine.
For the probiotics… I suggest taking a strong formula in the billions, that has both L-Planterum and L-Salvarus in it… Innate brand has a good quality one. I suggest taking 5 in the morning on an empty stomach – for at least 1 week, then 3 for at least a few months. Depending on the quality of your diet. The more alkaline the diet, the less we need them.
Blessings to you!!!
