Great questions EHInfected. You articulated what I was looking for better than I did.
To all out there, please post how you progressed month to month after medication. It would be really helpful to those of us who are still going through the post meds healing process....And in a place where we could just be healing or may still be infected. I had Giardia years ago and had to be medicated 3 times before it cleared. Following the first 2 courses of meds, the doctors said I had to be clear, but I knew I wasn't. I waited a month each time to restest and sure enough, I was right. The third time, even though I wasn't fully healed yet (and had Clostridium Difficile from all the pharmaceuticals), immediately after taking the meds, I knew I had cleared the Giardia...And again I was right. There's a lot to be said for our intuitive awareness of our bodies....And even the 'top docs', with the best of intentions, experience, and education, don't have all the answers.
Anyway, it is now about a month since I got done with the meds. (I think I posted the wrong date in my initial post).
Acid reflux is gone...If I eat too many carbs though, I will wake up with a sore throat. (I am generally on low carb as I don't do well with fruit or starchy foods and don't eat sugar). To EHInfected...Until you get a definitive all clear on the EH, you may want to read "Heartburn Cured" by Norm Robillard to get some relief for this.
I also found Enzymatic Therapy's Heartburn Free w/ ROH10 & D-Limonene helpful.
As I stated in the first post, my stools were the best they have ever been since I was a child, the last few days I was on the meds. Had forgotten what 'normal' was. They have not been 'normal' since I got done with the meds though.
Energy is okay but not what it should be. Ferritin had gotten very low, I assume from the EH. How is your energy EHInfected?
Skin rash is much improved but not totally resolved. I am however taking some natural things that could be kicking EH down, if I still have it. Taking - Allimax, oregano, grapefruit seed extract, and a few others.
My greatest concern at the moment though is ongoing pain in the appendix, cecum area. As i said, this is a month after ending the meds. I have this daily and it is made worse by sitting. Cahill told me that it is common for these critters to inflame the cecum but it's rather scary being that I don't know if it is appendicitis or a still inflamed cecum that will get better, or do I still have the EH. Did any of you guys have this? If so, how long did it take to resolve?
Thanks for all your posts and good luck to all.
