This is our (ongoing) experience dealing with Entamoeba Histolytica parasite while living in Ecuador. We advise everyone who has traveled to or is living in a developing country be checked for E histolytica and then work on eradicating it from the body before it begins to do damage. It should not be taken lightly. The longer it is in the body the worse damage it can bring upon your immune system

(We will refer to this parasite often as E. Histolytica or EH throughout our writings.) 

FACTS  about Entamoeba histolytica (EH)

1. EH can lie dormant for years and you'll never know you have it.
2. Eating a poor diet, especially sugary foods and drinks can bring on symptoms.
3. Most people do not think they have parasites.
4. EH can travel into the bloodstream to the liver, joints, heart, lungs and brain.
5. EH is worldwide but worse in developing countries. 
6. Antibiotics do NOT kill cysts that hide in the crevices of the colon. 
7. EH is the second most dangerous parasite after Malaria. 

We'll start at the beginning when we first became infected with EH... We're still working on ridding our bodies of EH and clearing up secondary infections that two of us in the family got, and rebuilding our immune system, namely our intestinal flora since becoming infected with EH.   

NOTE: Taking too many parasite antibiotics are bad news and can cause many negative physical issues (we know first hand) within many different areas of the body especially the good flora in your intestinal system and sinus cavities. 

Remember, this is all new to us. We've never had a parasite (at least we don't think) in our life! We're normally VERY healthy people. We are simply retelling the events as they unfold for us and any new issues or updates. That's why you may see us look tired or appear restless in our videos; its been challenging. 

NOTE: this is the chronological sequence of events as they happened in our lives. We share in the hopes it will help others from panicking like we did and it helps to know, you're not alone; its always nice to have support of others who know what you are going through. We appreciate all of our loyal followers for sticking with us during this challenging time. Take care and God Bless to all!

The first part of our story begins in Cuenca Ecuador

December 2015 Cuenca: This is when we first learned we had EH. We did not know we had this parasite for a very long time but we were all having bloating and cramping symptoms and attributed that to the produce being sprayed with pesticides and other chemicals. Symptoms were ALWAYS worse AFTER eating raw produce! 

The reason why we eventually found out it was EH parasite causing our symptoms was when one of our sons got progressively worse with abdominal/intestinal issues; subsequently, we had a stool sample taken to the lab in Cuenca and it came up positive for E. histolytica. Really!? Shock! Then the whole family got checked and that was our confirmation we all had the same parasite. So, it was not the produce being sprayed with pesticides after all.

We decided to share our experiences and write about it. Our thinking is "why leave something like this swept under the rug when you can help so many people emotionally, mentally and physically? I mean, we would sure want to know about everything before moving to a developing country. keeping the negative things undercover to potential travelers does more damage than good.

The first part of our story begins in Cuenca Ecuador

1. The War on Parasites When Living in a Developing Country

2. Food Poisoning, Amoebas and Parasites in South America

3. Killing Parasites Pharmaceutical Way or the Natural Way?

4. Uh Oh, Parasites again (EH)

It states in the articles above that we took antibiotics and for the most part we got a little bit better, except for our son who continued to get worse. At the time we did not know that the anti-parasite medicine we took does not kill off the cysts. So, what happens is, if you do not take care of your health for just a few days or do not retain eating foods that help provide the colon with good flora the parasites will begin to cause symptoms again (bloating, cramping, and worse for some people) because the cysts just hatch and it starts all over anew; its a vicious, vicious cycle. 

BTW, it was months later we found out that we took the wrong parasite antibiotics in Cuenca and yet it is the medication they (the lab) prescribes to everyone who has EH???? and it does not kill the cysts!!!

Mid July/August 2016: Now we are in Salinas Ecuador. When we moved to Salinas we did not know we still had the EH parasites but it wasn't long before we realized something was not right with us, again. Remember: antibiotics do not kill cysts. 

When we moved to Salinas we stopped drinking raw yogurt (we had raw milk delivered to our door twice a week in Cuenca and we all ate homemade yogurt on a consistent basis which is really good for your flora; and we also stopped eating sauerkraut that we were eating every day with our lunches in Cuenca.  

We figured out that those two foods were keeping the parasites at bay. We still had them but they were not multiplying so fast in our intestines, which is what they do if you keep a poor diet, bad flora, and eat a lot of sugary foods, etc; and then they begin to cause nausea, cramping, bloating, gas, edginess, not sleeping,etc, etc...

September 2016: We Live in a Developing Country and THIS is Part of What Comes with That.
Second Most Dangerous Parasite after Malaria

 NOTE: August/September 2016 Salinas: Two people in our family became ill with secondary bacterial infections brought on by EH parasite invading the mucous of the stomach lining. It was very scary, we panicked, went to a medical doctor and took the antibiotics for a third time, plus we were prescribed more/other antibiotics for 2 family members in the house for amoebic colitis, a symptom of a heavy infestation. If left untreated it only gets worse from there. 

We also researched for many days about Colloidal Silver.  A natureopath friend gave us CS for secondary infections (thank you to our dear friends) and within a week infections were gone. But we still had the parasites.

Late September 2016: We are So Thankful Answers Are Coming about Entamoeba Histolytica Parasite.

The Moment of Panic, What We Did
Late October 2016: We finally feel like we can share more of our experiences with dealing with EH and what we are doing to feel better. We now have PUR FILTER on kitchen tap water for drinking, washing dishes, etc. We ordered extra filters knowing they would go out fast, but it's cheaper than buying the bottled water. 

Do we still have the amoebas? Probably, but we are doing many things to keep them at bay while we are living here and that's what everyone needs to do while living in a developing country. The medical doctor told us that you never really get rid of them where the water is bad in endemic areas, hence why THEY treat every 6-months. Remember what we said about taking too many antibiotics...?

Coming to Ecuador?  We No Longer Recommend THIS in Cuenca Plus we share tips about traveling to and living in endemic Entamoeba histolytica areas. Must Watch Video! Parasite zapper smoothie.

5 Ways to Know You Have Entamoeba histolytica Parasite 

November 2016: Progress Report with E. histolytica     

We have done EXTENSIVE research about this parasite and through our experiences with this parasite we know it is a tough one to get rid of.  On our latest video above a commenter left this article about E. histolytica amoeba and this doctor talks about everything we have shared with our viewers so far on this blog.  

The informative article by Dr by Glen Swartwout How To Eliminate Parasites is one of the best out there on the Internet. He talks about other parasites as well; we recommend everyone read. Don't just take our information, read, study, learn and be more informed before traveling or moving to developing country and be healthy.

PS..according to Dr. Gen Swartwout cloves and artemisia work well together to eliminate amoebas from the body.  Although we have not tried this remedy, we do know that clove tea does help to reduce cramping, nausea and bloating. We simply crush the cloves and make a tea out of them and drink several times per day. Does cloves actually kill the cysts? We have no conclusive evidence of that as of yet. The other ingredient Artemisia still needs to be researched and studied by us for its effectiveness with the cloves and then several stool samples need to be taken. All of these things take time and patience.
