Parasitic infections are a big problem in tropical and subtropical regions of the world. In this video, Dr. J and Evan will share how to handle these cases. One of these is giardiasis that may cause diarrhea, gas, upset stomach, greasy stools, and dehydration; cryptosporidiosis, which may cause stomach cramps, stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, dehydration, weight loss, and fever; toxoplasmosis may cause flu-like symptoms, including swollen lymph nodes and muscle aches or pains that can last for over a month.

Getting to the root of poor health symptoms is foundational in functional medicine. That’s why, with low thyroid patients, functional practitioners will spend so much time working to identify the factors lurking under the surface that are causing inflammatory harm. This can be anything from poor diet to toxic exposure or even infections. However, when it comes to infection, things get more complicated and parasites are often a primary factor in low thyroid cases. Dr. J also shared that some current screening methods miss most parasites, and conventional doctors rarely test for parasites, especially in low thyroid and other autoimmune conditions. Also, parasite cleanses a general approach to eradicating infections. While that can absolutely work for some people, we have a better opportunity to design tailored approaches by using advanced testing. Once the parasite is eradicated, there is more work to be done.

Parasites cause damage that can perpetuate problems even after the infection is dealt with. It’s critical to identify the parasite and the secondary conditions that need support to heal. Different treatments work for different parasites; thus, while general parasite cleanses can sometimes help, I prefer to figure out the specific parasite type through advanced testing.
