I understand that IWDL charges £260 for a Comprehensive Digestive Stool Analysis via Great Smokies.
Parascope, part of the Leeds Teaching Hospital charges £95 for 3 sample pots WITH FIXATIVE (VERY IMPORTANT!)to be used on 3 consecutive days. Tel: 0113 392 4657. parasites
are notoriously difficult to detect in stool samples. Results need to be sent to a medical practitioner. That said, I got them to send the results to my vet (on the basis that vets know more about parasites
than doctors) and he forwarded the results to me. The medical profession in the UK have an extremely negative response to parasites.
It is worth noting that I did a test of 3 samples and all that showed up was entamoeba coli (not to be confused with e.coli). This is a non-pathogenic organism that CAN indicate the presence of other parasites. Some months later I did a single follow-up test to see if I was clear AT THE FULL MOON and the results showed up positive for Dientamoeba Fragilis.
The London School of Tropical Health and Hygiene charge £48.60 for 3 samples (also using fixative). They too, will only send the results to a medical practitioner. Problem there, is that the head of department, Professor Chiodini does not think that parasites
such as DF are pathogenic (disease producing). There are other parasitologists working there who do not agree with him.
Be wary of advice given, if it turns out you have an amoeba (flagellate) like Dientamoeba Fragilis. The recommended Antibiotic
is always Metronidazole (Flagyl) which is all but useless. For some reason every doctor insists on prescribing this medication first.
FOOTNOTE! The thing to drink in Brazil against parasites is COCONUT water. I read an email from a woman had health problems with Blastocytis Hominis and Dientamoeba fragilis and had taken Antibiotics
without real improvement. Conversely, when she travelled to Brazil on holiday and drank coconut water every day she felt amazing. She hunted out coconuts in the UK and had the same positive result.
Encouraged by this story, I found fresh coconuts in supermarkets in UK (48p in Tesco) and have been drinking the water, eating the flesh and making coconut milk from the flesh too. Anti-parasitic and anti-fungal and extremely energising! GOOGLE how to open a coconut and see just how easy it is!
