Before you watch the tutorial, please click on the link to downloadyour free report. Let's have a look at the cause of Blastocystis infection. That's whatI'm going to show you today. How you actually get this bug and the most likely scenarios.I've got a few notes I've made here. A very common one is travel. I mentioned thisin a previous tutorial. Have you been to an exotic destinationé Have you been to India or AsiaéHave you been to the Pacific region to an island somewhereé Have you gone sailingé Haveyou gone campingé Where have you gone because
you may well have picked it up from someplaceaway from where you liveé International travelers quite commonly pick up blasto.Close contact. So caring for people like a child, a relation, an elderly person, someonewho's sick or unwell. This is a common scenario as well. You may be looking after people.You could bethe health care profession. There are many different scenariostermsof close contact. inking water from contaminated sources.This is a really key thing. inking watera swimming pool that's not really cleanedproperly. There could have been a bit of fecal matterthe pool and you could have pickedup a tiny little bit through that way. Because
remember, fecal route is the most common wayof picking up, getting it on your hand or your eye or your skin, anywhere. And you onlyneed one tiny little parasiteyour body. You're not going to get this through blood.This is not a blood borne infection. This is a water borne infection. Generally, it'stransmitted through fecal matter that you're exposed to. So you could've gone to a bathroom,touched a surface, evenan airport, and not washed your hands, rubbing your eye, bang,you've got the infection. You could've touched your mouth or your nose.Generally, hands, so this is why hand washing is so important. You don't have to be analabout handwashing like some people are known
to be. But I do a lot of travel. I fly quitefrequently and I always wash my hands every time I disembark from an aircraft. I washmy hands. I go to the bathroom; I wash my hands. I wash my hands probably 10 times aday. That's not an obsessive compulsive thing. It's just that I'mthe health care professionand I don't generally get sick. And I'm around a lot of sick people. So I understand thathandwashing is the best way to stop a lot of different diseases from getting into yourbody. Viral infections, many different diseases, just wash your hands.So inking water, lakes, streams, poorly maintained wells, things like this, contaminatedwater. When you travel, it's very important
to only ink bottled water where the bottlehas actually got a factory seal on it. Because some sneaky people sell water from riversor lakes where they'll just quickly pop the cap on. It's not a factory seal. Ifdoubt,boil the water. Super saturated potassium iodide or potassium iodide opswateris another smart move. A little bit of liquid grapefruit seed extract, a couple of opsin water will also stop a lot of diseases, if you're going to different places.Chilendaycare settings. Chilen that swim a lotswimming pools. Kids often pickup blasto infections through this way. People who camp. People who hike. Backpackers. Peoplewho ink water from suspect areas. Exposure
to human fecal matter through sexual contact.So you need to be very careful with intimacy. Again, hygiene. It's all about hygiene, folks.If you're really clean and careful with yourself, you've got a lot less chance of picking upa Blastocystis hominis infection. Stay tuned. There's more to come. Thanks forchecking out my series on blasto.
Can I get A Yeast Infection From A Jacuzzi
Hi there, Eric Bakker, naturopath, authorof Candida Crusher. Another question. Can I get a yeast infection from a Jacuzzié I think a Jacuzzi is one of those hot bathsor hot springs or hot pools. You can't really get a yeast infection from a Jacuzzi whenyou think about it. The water is quite a high temperature. It's moving fast. It's not reallylikely you're going to get a yeast infection from a Jacuzzi. I don't really think so. Youare maybe more likely to pick up a toenail infection or tinea, athlete's foot, perhapsif you're walking around locker rooms or things like that, but you don't generally get yeastinfections from Jacuzzis.
If you're concerned about Jacuzzis or publichot pools, whirlpools, make sure you have a good shower and a clean thereafter theny yourself properly. ying is a particularly important thing to do if you are prone toyeast infections. Use a hair yer and y the pubic region particularly, with a towelthen use a hair yer for further treatment. And you should be okay. So you should not really concern yourselfabout ching a yeast infection from a Jacuzzi. It shouldn't really be a problem. So I hope that answers your question.
