Brazil trip. Gastritis, Nexium, Bacteria overgrowth or bugs?

~ Cure Zone … STORY: Brazil trip. Gastritis, Nexium, Bacteria overgrowth or bugs?
~
Hello everyone.
I’m very happy to be back home.
My trip to Brazil was a success. I was able to get diagnosed and treated properly. I also found out I have heartburn/stomach inflammation/gastritis and I think the parasite drugs made it much worse. Luckily I fixed some of this problem and the gastritis discomfort is mild since I’m careful with what I eat.
~
Unfortunately because of the gastritis I had to use another drug called Nexium (esomeprazole)for 8 weeks which gave me some anxiety and depression as a side effect. The depression and anxiety got much worse on the 7 and 8 week. In the 7th week I also started having quite low energy, I was drowsy, and having high pitch ring in my ears/head, digestion was not the greatest I had to go to the bathroom more then once a day which felt similar to my Amoeba/Giardia days :o(.
Luckily after I stopped taking Nexium my bad/dysfunctional depression and anxiety went mostly away :o))) but my energy levels and alertness are not as good as I was a couple of weeks ago in Brazil, the buzzing still happens and the digestion is still not great.
~
I’m not sure if I’m still having side effects from Nexium or if I have some Giardia and Amoeba left to kill. My last Giardia and Amoeba test where negative at Labion lab. Its also possible that I have bacteria overgrowth or yeast infection. I have read that drugs like Nexium can cause that.
I did an endoscopy to see why every time I eat foods with carbs or sugars I get a sour/lemon like taste after eating. Nexium was supposed to take care of this sour taste issue. Nexum helped with heartburn & acid burning throat but it did nothing for the sour taste. H.pylori was not found in the endoscopy test (since I had many false negative test results for parasites, I’m skeptical)
~
All my tests from MetaMetrix and Labion showed Enterococcus feacalis (from Labion) and non pathogenic E.coli. My last Labion test was negative for Giardia and Amoeba but positive for Enterococcus feacalis and non pathogenic E.coli.
~
I’m thinking of taking Xifaxan for e.coli
~
Any suggestions?
~
I hope my parasite story is going to be over soon.
Thank you!

WARNINGS
~
http://healthquestions.medhelp.org/nexium-fda-warning
~
The latest FDA warning for PPI’s (nexium is a PPI) is hypomagnesemia – magnesium deficiency. “FDA notified healthcare professionals and the public that prescription proton pump inhibitor (PPI) drugs may cause low serum magnesium levels (hypomagnesemia) if taken for prolonged periods of time (in most cases, longer than one year).
~
PPI’s should be taken for up to 14 days, 3 times a year – FDA warning – March 2010. Good reason for this statement. You need stomach acid to absorb essential nutrients and kill off bacteria, fungi and parasites. Low stomach acid leads to fractures, bacterial/fungal infections, parasites, lowered immune system, systematic health decline, gastritis, stomach cancer, heart failure…
~
Neutralizing stomach acid means you ability to absorb nutrients is impaired. Warning in particular for nexium is magnesium deficiency on the FDA website – seen within 3 months but on average about a year after starting. Magnesium deficiency causes so many symptoms including acid reflux ironically. Magnesium is essential for proper heart rhythm. Calcium contracts the muscles, magnesium relaxes the muscle. The most important muscle in the body is the heart.

PCOS Lady: Please, if you take any of the antacids mentioned google the name and then parasites and/or dangers to see what you are up against, have or may be setting yourself up for!

Her natural cures and remedies, in many cases, eliminate the need for drugs and doctors.
~
This idealistic woman who had spent 30 years of her life doing private clinical research and treating patients found herself pitted against the deep, angry pockets of medical associations, pharmaceutical companies and government cronies…
… Who were all trying to silence her. (Read about this later in this post)

PCOS Lady:
This woman spent 30 years of her life to tell you the truths(s) on why you get sick and are sick! I feel everyone needs to know the factual truth(s)… I hope you gain a new knowledge on the medical industry and why certain things are not done, exposed, the red tape, the road blocks we encounter, etc…
~ I will keep adding to this post as i research her findings…
~ QUESTION your doctor(s)…
~ SYMPTOMS COUNT!!!!!
~
FACT:
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease control nearly 100 MILLION Americans are infected with internal parasites like pinworms, whipworms, and tapeworms just to name a few… many of which are passed from their pets to their owners.
~
Are Parasites Making YOU Sick?
~
* Do you suffer with a list of mysterious aches, pains and illnesses?
* Does your doctor brush off your concerns… or doesn’t seem to have answers?
* Are you taking prescription drugs for a condition… but see little benefit?
* Are you frustrated that your doctor treats the PAIN… instead of playing detective to eliminate the ROOT CAUSE of your ongoing discomfort?
* Has your doctor ever ONCE discussed parasites or toxins with you?
~
Because here’s the thing:
Just because modern medicine has decided to IGNORE the problem of parasites and environmental toxins doesn’t mean they’re not invading our bodies and making us sick.
~
Your body has been trying to rid itself of parasites and pollutants your entire life!
You’ve even seen the signs:
Your body makes stones… mucous secretions… toxic dumpsites. It uses swelling… inflammation… cysts… tumours… mystery pain… headaches… diarrhea… constipation… poor digestion… weight gain… water retention… eczema… psoriasis… warts… acne… insomnia… extreme fatigue… PMS… bad breath… unusual body odour… cramps… stomach pains… joint pain… and the list goes on!
~
At first, when you’re younger, these symptoms are a nuisance. You might just feel a bit ‘off.’ Maybe your doctor has even told you these things are ‘normal’ and ‘of little concern.’
~
But as time progresses, and your body has more and more trouble fighting off the invaders, you begin to feel really sick.
~
Your list of seemingly unconnected symptoms begin to snowball. And your health issues start to get serious. Really serious.
~
What has your body been trying to tell you?

Look At Some Of Dr. Clark’s Other Parasite Discoveries:
~
* Those sick with colds are ALWAYS polluted with mycotoxins (the extremely toxic substances made by food molds)!
* Everyone with cancer has the human intestinal fluke in their liver – but no one else does!
* Everyone with diabetes has the pancreatic fluke of cattle in their pancreas – but few others do.
* Everyone with environmental illness tested positive for Fasciola (sheep liver fluke) in their liver!

* Everyone with asthma tested positive for Ascaris in their lungs!
… And the list goes on and on.

Dr. Hulda Clark Uncovered A Startling Truth:
There Are Only 2 Real Health Problems:
That’s right, according to Dr. Clark, no matter how long and confusing your list of symptoms may be…
… From joint pain to chronic inflammation to irritable bowel syndrome or eczema…
~
Your issues of pain and illness can typically be traced back to 2 problems:
* Parasites and/or Pollution. *
~
And during her 30 years of clinical research and patient study, she concluded:
~
• If you can get rid of the parasites from your body…
• And if you can prevent them from re-invading by eliminating pollution and toxins from your environment…

~
… Then you can rid your body of disease and pain and restore health!
~
Sound crazy? Not convinced parasites could be at the root of your chronic pain issues?
I must tell you, I wasn’t a believer to start, either. Beyond discussions of hand washing to prevent colds and the spread of e-coli, when do we EVER talk about parasites?
(Outside of deworming our pets???)
~
But, in fact, Dr. Clark found that every person suffering with a ‘mysterious illness’ or ‘incurable pain’ was ALWAYS infected with some parasite or pollutant!
~
Including those suffering with joint pain, arthritis and inflammation!
~
In fact, she found that all her patients suffering with joint pain (in any form) were typically infected with as many as 4 specific types of worms!
~
And she found that exposure to three specific toxins as well as certain solvents in your home environment made you vulnerable to these parasites by lowering your body’s immunity and allowing the tiny larvae to infest and live within your muscles and joints…
… While opening the door for invasion by other parasites, bacteria and viruses, too!

Stop Being Held Hostage By Your Doctor
~
Dr. Clark said it best…
~
“Since the beginning of time, the sick have been held hostage by doctors and healers who surround themselves with mystery as they use herbs, chemicals and all manners of mysterious remedies to ‘cure’ and help the sick recover…
… And this mystery is used to justify the extraordinary costs of your diagnosis and healing.”

~
Dr. Clark was actually advised to patent her medical inventions.
She never did. Instead, she believed that her knowledge should be readily, freely available to whomever needed it.
She was on a mission to bring the world out of the dark ages of medicine and illness. And to learn the true causes of infection and disease.
She was keen to usher in a new age of disease-free living.
And so, to continue her legacy, I believe…

Dr. Clark Was Falsely And Unjustly Accused,
In My Opinion, Of Being A ‘Quack’
Dr. Clark was harassed.
Arrested.
(Jailed at the age of 71, and held without bail for more than 2 weeks!)
And then finally driven out of the country into Mexico, where she fled and continued to practice against all odds.
~
Why? Well, you can probably guess…
~
Her natural cures and remedies, in many cases, eliminate the need for drugs and doctors.
So this idealistic woman who had spent 30 years of her life doing private clinical research and treating patients found herself pitted against the deep, angry pockets of medical associations, pharmaceutical companies and government cronies…
… Who were all trying to silence her.
It wasn’t a fair fight.
~
And even now that Dr. Clark is gone (she died in September 2009), there is STILL an insidious public relations machine that continues to pump out slanderous information, painting her as a quack and fraud of monstrous proportions.

FAQ
~
Questions and Answers About Lean Finely Textured Beef
Unfortunately, recent media reports and so-called “reality” shows have raised concerns about the product without the benefit of facts from those that produce or use it. These questions and answers aim to provide those facts.
~
What is Lean Finely Textured Beef?
Lean Finely Textured Beef (LFTB) is a key source of the lean meat used to make ground beef. Ground beef is generally made by combining lean beef trimmings with other beef trimmings and grinding them together to make different lean blends that consumers desire (example 90% lean / 10% fat).
~
The benefit of separating the fat from the lean in the beef trimmings is the ability to make leaner and more affordable ground beef blends; however, this separation has historically been nearly impossible to do by hand. Thirty years ago, the technology was developed to make this possible – state of the art food processing equipment allowed the removal of the fat from the beef trimmings. The finished product from this process is known as Lean Finely Textured Beef or LFTB.
~
How is Lean Finely Textured Beef Made?
When beef carcasses are portioned the pieces that are cut off (“beef trimmings”) often have lean meat remaining with them. These USDA inspected beef trimmings are refrigerated and sent to LFTB producers. Similar to standard ground beef processes, the trimmings are sent to specialized machinery which removes any connective tissue, cartilage, and other pieces that may incidentally accompany the trimmings. To separate the fat from the lean meat the trimmings are warmed to the temperature they were prior to refrigeration (105°F) using equipment designed to evenly temper the trimmings. The trimmings are then sent to a centrifuge where the fat is removed using centrifugal force. The lean meat which is now 94% to 97% lean, is then frozen and packaged. The process used to make LFTB is similar to the one used to separate cream from milk and a variety of other everyday foods.
~
Is LFTB regulated and inspected?
LFTB is 100% beef and all beef is strictly regulated and inspected by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service (FSIS) carries out USDA’s responsibilities under the Federal Meat Inspection Act. These laws protect consumers by ensuring that meat is wholesome, unadulterated, and correctly labeled and packaged. Inspectors are present in plants where these products are made everyday to ensure they are produced in accordance with established regulations in a safe and wholesome manner. During the more than three decades BPI has been producing lean beef, they have had an unsurpassed food safety record.
~
Is it true that these trimmings previously were only used for pet food and oil and were unfit for human consumption, as one media outlet claimed?
That statement is absolutely false. LFTB is 100% USDA inspected and regulated beef. Beef trimmings are edible and no process can make an inedible product edible. What the LFTB production process simply does is allow the removal of fat from beef trimmings, which was previously near impossible to accomplish through knife trimming by hand.
~
What is Ammonia and how is it different than Ammonium Hydroxide?
Ammonia is a colorless gas which is lighter than air and readily soluble in water. It is one (1) part nitrogen to three (3) parts hydrogen (NH3). It is formed naturally in nature as a by-product of protein metabolism in animals. Ammonia is naturally found in beef, other proteins, and virtually all foods.
Ammonium hydroxide is simply a solution of ammonia gas in water.
~
Is there Ammonia in LFTB ?
Yes, there is Ammonia naturally occurring in all beef. In addition, as part of our commitment to provide the safest lean beef possible, research drove us to create the pH enhancement process, which relies upon slightly increasing the level of Ammonia already present in beef in order to elevate its pH to combat deadly pathogens such as E coli O157:H7.
~
What is E coli O157:H7?
Escherichia coli O157:H7 is an enterohemorrhagic strain of the bacterium Escherichia coli and a cause of foodborne illness. Infection often leads to hemorrhagic diarrhea, and occasionally to kidney failure, especially in young children and elderly persons.
~
Transmission is via the fecal-oral route, and most illness has been associated with eating undercooked, contaminated ground beef or ground pork, swimming in or drinking contaminated water, or eating contaminated vegetables.
~
Why is Ammonia used in processing a beef product?
Ammonium hydroxide is created by applying a tiny amount of ammonia in the form of a puff of gas. This raises the pH level in the beef helping to kill any harmful pathogens like E coli O157:H7 and Salmonella that could possibly be present. These bacteria grow and thrive in an acidic (low pH) environment. By raising the pH we disrupt the bacteria’s natural environment making it inhospitable for them to live. The result of this revolutionary food safety intervention is a dramatic reduction in the number of potential pathogens that may be present in foods. Ammonia is naturally found in all beef, other proteins, and virtually all foods and has been declared safe by the Food and Drug Administration for use in food processing since 1974. Ammonia, in its many forms, is widely used in the processing of numerous foods, such as baked goods, cheeses, chocolates, caramels, and puddings.
~
Ammonium hydroxide is just one of a number of processing aids used with meat and poultry in order to ensure the safety of these foods before they are delivered to consumers. The specific processing aide developed by BPI, the pH enhancement process, is just one important step in the overall food safety system employed by BPI.
~
The graphic below helps put it into a little better perspective. Ammonia based compounds are naturally occurring and can be found in every component of a bacon cheeseburger (bun, bacon, cheese, condiments, and beef). Baked goods, including breads will have ranges from 400 to 32,000 ppm. Bacon has approximately 48,000 ppm nitrogen (nitrates), with 160 ppm in the form of ammonia. Condiments, relishes, and cheeses have levels up to 8,000 ppm (for the sake of illustration, we’ll use 400 ppm for the condiments and 1,000 ppm for American cheese).
~
Between the naturally occurring levels and small amounts used in our food safety system, beef may have about 200 ppm. So, for the illustration, we’ve taken these amounts and multiplied by the weight of the typical bacon double cheeseburger to show the full picture.
~
This is really nothing new. In fact, the presence or use of ammonia in foods has been studied for years. For example, the data below contains information developed in 1973 as part of a study printed in The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
~
Chart to be posted later of foods… Ammonia Content of Foods from ajcn.nutricion.org
~
When any form of LFTB is blended into ground beef, will it be labeled?
Ground beef is a single ingredient product (beef) and LFTB is 100% beef; therefore it is not required to be listed separately on any label. We believe USDA’s decision to allow companies to voluntarily include information on their label regarding LFTB content will be an important first step in restoring consumer confidence in their ground beef.
~
What do the experts say about its safety?
Experts such as Dr. Gary Acuff at Texas A&M University and Dr. James Dickson with Iowa State University, among many others have examined these products and say that all forms of LFTB are wholesome, safe, and nutritious when produced in compliance with USDA regulations. A number of meat scientists, academics, food and safety experts, governmental officials, and consumer advocacy organizations have spoken on behalf of the food safety record and quality of LFTB. Experts such as Dr. Richard Ray Raymond former Under Secretary for The Food and Safety Inspection Service, Dr Randy Phebus a Meat Scientist and food and safety expert with The Food Science Institute at Kansas State University, Dr. Thomas Powell Executive Director of the American Meat Association, and Sally Greenberg Executive Director of the National Consumers League just to name a few.
~
What does the food safety data show?
USDA data shows that the incidence of E coli O157:H7 in fresh ground beef has been declining significantly over the past decade. The number of USDA ground beef samples testing positive for the E coli O157:H7 pathogen have dropped 72 percent between 2000 and 2010. LFTB has been a part of that success story.
~
Is it really necessary to try to get every small bit of beef from a carcass?
Necessary? No. Is it the right thing to do? Absolutely!
~
LFTB production makes it possible to have more of the leaner ground beef blends consumers desire at affordable prices. If LFTB were not produced, 850,000,000 lbs of lean beef a year would need to be generated from some other source to meet consumer demand. It would be like throwing away 5,700 cattle a day. In a world where population is increasing*; red meat consumption is rising; and available supply is declining, it would seem that getting all the lean meat from every animal is the absolute necessary and responsible thing to do.
~
*According to the World Health Organization the world population is increasing by 220,000 people everyday.
