    Hello everyone. I just got my GI effects back which showed I have b.hominis. Did anyone have success getting rid of it? What did you take? I heard that it's hard to treat so I am trying to do the best approach. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    If I remember right I did a combination of black walnut along w/ the medication. I think she had me do the black walnut first and then follow up w/ the med. because she said it was difficult to get rid of. Before getting rid of it I had been diagnosed w/ seronegative rheumatoid arthritis, but it turned out to be reactive arthritis caused by the parasite. Got rid of it and the joint pain went away. I started to improve quite a bit after that.

    I had a stool analysis done that showed 'many' B Hominis on each of the samples ( Three ). I am taking Botanifuge for eight weeks, then Herbalfuge. I am also taking IPS, ADP, MSM, lactozyme, Betaine HCL, dysbiocide, bromelain plus.
    Please keep us updated and I wish you the best of luck.

    Kind regards, Mark

    I am burnt out money wise with docs. I know you can send your stool samples in through health dept. will they look for something like this?
