Do I Have A Bug In My Gut?By Alane Stieglitz, ND, CNC

What could be more terrifying than learning you may have a bug in your gut? And this may be contributing to poor gut health, like diarrhea, skin eruptions, creepy crawlies, constipation, malabsorption, gas, bloating, lack of appetite, or even hair loss. Could it be a parasite, pin-worms, roundworms, a virus, or bacteria affecting your gut health?

And what is a parasite exactly? A parasite is an organism that lives and feeds off another organism. Therefore, all these types of organisms could be found in your gut, feeding off your nutrition!

How exactly do we end up with a bug inside us affecting our gut health? Parasites can enter our bodies through contaminated food, water, undercooked meat, lake water, pond water, creeks, and even contaminated fruits and veggies?

Have you heard enough?  Parasites are difficult to talk about; however, Nutritionally Yours has a stool test to help you know if you have parasites that may affect your gut health and body. These test kits are discrete and easy to do. Our stool test kit is shipped to your home when you place your order and can efficiently be completed in the comfort of your home.

So, Let’s Improve Your Gut Health Now! Test results are returned in approximately three weeks with an interpretation guide and a personal protocol. This will help you begin your journey to a parasite-free life and improved overall gut health.

Here are a few examples of nice people that had a parasite issue affecting their gut health.

Friendly family went to the beach for a fun vacation. Their story started after they dined on raw oysters. They are all up during the night with diarrhea, gas, and bloating. When they returned home, a few days later, they contacted me due to skin eruptions. Besides having loose stools, the mom now had acne on her face, forehead, chest, and back. She did not have acne before the beach trip. Dad and the two children had similar symptoms.

We did a stool test to check their gut health and found a water-based parasite and harmful bacteria. They also wanted to do food intolerance testing on themselves, so we did that too. A few weeks after gut health support was provided, their symptoms cleared up. Food intolerance testing proved that “oysters” were fine for them, but gluten was not, so they changed their diet to remove gluten, and they said their absorption improved.

Blueberry Farm: Another one of my top stories about parasites involves a lady age 35 who went to her sister-in-law’s farm for a weekend. Her sister-in-law grew blueberries, and the whole family enjoyed eating them over the weekend of fun, conversation, and adventures. This lady loved the blueberries so much that she took some home with her, and so did a few other family members.

After a few days, she started to eat them and unfortunately got diarrhea from them. She called her sister-in-law right away, and she was asked if she had washed them before eating; she said no. Uh oh. The blueberries on the farm were washed, but the blueberries the family took home were not.

Grandma had also phoned, somewhat concerned that her stomach was upset too. After a few days, diarrhea cleared up, so she thought the problem was fixed. Weeks went by, and she noticed she was hungry, very hungry, even got up in the middle to cook food. She was not craving junk food; she was craving protein. Due to the excessive appetite, she gained about twenty pounds in a matter of three months. She came to me asking for help. When she told me the story of the blueberries, my thoughts went right to a parasite.

Stool testing confirmed my concerns, and she brought the test results to her primary care, who treated her. After just a few days, she emailed me stating she was feeling much better and her appetite was normal.
