Tom Bishop out sick
« on: March 25, 2014, 05:01:15 AM »
Some may have noticed my recent absence.

I haven't been doing too well.  I'm not going to be posting too much for the next month. It's nothing serious, just an apparent case of fungal candida overgrowth. This condition has too many symptoms to count. I'm experiencing a majority of items on that list to some degree, except for cancer, diabetes, and infertility (as far as I know). It's a nasty, horrible condition, which I wouldn't wish on anybody. It's difficult to concentrate and focus most of the time. The last few months have been among the most terrible in my life. But I think I'll survive. I feel myself getting better with anti-fungals. I need time to recover and regain energy. Hopefully this forum can manage without me.

Indeed. May the moonshramps bless you and make you well.

Seriously though, that's awful. Get better. Well wishes and all that.
That's how far the horizon is, not how far you can see.

I'm back.

In the time I was gone the infection spread from my bloated, hurting intestines to my Kidney and Liver. I would get constant sharp stinging attacks with pain in my right flank, lower and upper back. There were times where I was bedridden and in extreme constant pain. Oregano Oil wasn't helping. Nothing was helping. The doctors took MRI's and metabolic panels and told me I was perfectly fine, with just a small benign cyst on my kidney. I was diagnosed with Irritable bowel Syndrome and sent on my way.

I must have spent 400 hours in constant research. After experimenting with enemas and colonics, and learning more about the appearance of parasites, I came to the conclusion that I have something more than just candida. I'm dealing with liver flukes and several other bugs. I'm infested. No wonder why I'm still hungry after a full meal. I've seen the evidence first hand. The multiple stool tests for parasites I've had with the doctor never turned up anything. However, I've read numerous times that stool tests are very unreliable, as they are species specific and don't detect parasites living in the organs.

I did find something which seemed to have resolved 80% of my symptoms. I'm using a combination of herbs, wormwood, cloves, and black walnut, which are said to kill over 100 types of parasites. The number of symptoms I've been experiencing reduced significantly and I finally have enough energy and stability in my life to come back here.

I learned many things through my 8 months of sickness. The number one thing I learned that the only person qualified to treat you is yourself. In a way, you must be your own doctor, and make an effort to guide the process along. Especially if your issue is complicated. Most doctors spend under 15 minutes with their patients. This is not enough time to explore every single symptom, compare to every single possible disease and ailment in medical history for an appropriate match. Even if the doctor is expertly versed in the many thousands of different kinds ailments, diseases, and associated symptoms, the amount of time spent with the patient to appropriately explore and diagnose is unacceptable. You are better off spending many hours doing your own research and guiding your doctors to a path you believe is the correct one.

In my opinion the medical profession is a conveyor belt. The endoscopy turned up negative? Try this celiac diease test. Negative? Try this pill for Pancreatic Embolism. Negative? Try this MRI. Negative? Try eating gluten free for the next few weeks. I felt that they didn't really know what they were doing, and were merely throwing things until something stuck. This happened with multiple doctors, even the ones from Stanford and Columbia. There were time I was checking in with a specialist of some sort every other day, simply due to the massive confusion and shotgun approach to medicine.

The entire thing left a distaste in my mouth.
