Results from my nutritionist are in! Got Epstein Barr Virus and a parasite, so will see how I'm feeling once these are eliminated. She said it was the highest E Histolyca reading she'd seen. Feels so good to have something concrete on paper.

I swear from my days of reading old posts on Propecia Help back in the early days, that someone else mentioned the E. histolytica as an issue or root cause of their issues......frankly, I don't remember the exact wording of the post, but might be worth you looking into.

@barbaar have you done a comprehensive stool test? She thinks my low neutrophils were caused by Epstein-Barr virus, and I now have this pathogen to clear out too. Considering we have quite similar symptoms could be worth you getting one done too

Found it, don't want to get overly optimistic but god damn it was nice to read

"This website is insane for me to navigate so I hope this post actually appears.

I’m writing this because I was one of the several people who experienced dramatically compromising side effects after taking finasteride in the form of Propecia. Said side effects included an essential collapse of my sexual system (no libido, impotence), brain fog, anxiety issues, depression, ‘emotional blunting,’ and fatigue.

It took me 11 years and several doctors, but I finally got a diagnosis and–lo and behold–I’m cured. I’m cured!

It turns out I had a parasitic protozoa called e. histolytica. It’s been mentioned on this website before and it seems exceedingly common globally. An estimated 10% of the population has it, but apparently it’s asymptomatic in most people.

I welcome responses to this message and will be happy to answer questions. Here are answers to questions I can think of:

  1. I was diagnosed by an actual doctor.
  2. I did eventually come to suspect I had a parasite. The suspicion only aroused once I tried an elimination diet. Wheat was fine, dairy was fine, eggs were fine, but Sugar (sucrose) triggered my symptoms to a terrible degree. The Sugar connection is what eventually led me to question parasites.
  3. I did try a few at-home remedies, and some of them were genuinely effective in abating symptoms but none of them cured the infection. It must be treated with antibiotics.
  4. Alternative treatments that offered release were avoiding sugar, Humaworm, and ParaGone. I’d personally recommend ParaGone over Humaworm, but I think they’re both effective.
  5. I also experienced relief from Lactoferrin (Jarrow’s brand), and found they made the other treatments (including antibiotics) much more effective.
  6. The antibiotics that cured me were metronidazole (500mg 3x a day for 10 days) and paromomycin (1,000mg 3x a day for 5 days). Relief came pretty quickly–I felt 90% on top of the world by day three.
  7. I have no idea where I caught e. histolytica. I assume it was in my body for a while, and then the Propecia made it rage out of control. I wish I had caught this 11 years sooner, but I’m just glad to have it done with.
If you or anyone you know is having problems with Propecia, please see a doctor about e. histolytica! I had a stool test come back negative initially, but it showed up on a retest. I’d recommend finding an infectious/tropical disease specialist in your area, or a gastroenterologist familiar with e.h.

Again, I’ll try and respond to any replies to this. I wish everyone the best of luck, and I really hope this works for all fellow Propecia sufferers, as I finally feel like I have my life back now."

Ah, yes that was it. Glad you found it. As always, definitely worth a try!

I remember it. Read it several days ago. He erased that and got cured if I remember well.

Yup I remember reading this. Solonjk uses antibiotics- a partial recovery story along with smoking Damiana. -JN- too who went after pathogens with abx and then zinc/copper balance.

Essentially though if we balance our system nutritionally we should be able to defeat all pathogens along with strong lifestyle maybe use a rife machine, natural anti-bacterials.

Also if I recall correctly, Mew banned the guy who wrote the story above! He banned him haha that fucking loser mew. Mew, Awor, Axoloti omg those guys make me sick!!!

ABX = antibiotics?
Antibiotics: kolloidal silver!
Take msm AS well.
Yeah, those guys seem to have a contract with someone. They want to get AS much possible people there AS it gets. Critics on the topic "cure" will be commented immediately. They want to collect genetic information and Analyse that. The upload is in a cloud, you understand? Who do you think will have access to that?
Some guys on solve wanted to close solve, clear all! posts and transfer all people to ph. In my eyes, both platforms want to suppress helpful information forex recovering stories with a clear and succesful protocol like the ones who adress lots of symptoms to pathogens, viruses like mono, parasites, imbalances in the gut etc. and which can easily be treated and must be treated without a "cure from a company".

Can EBV be treated? I think I remember reading the virus can’t be cured as it will just harbor itself in certain areas of the body and lay dormant for a while if it starts to get attacked.

I've done a stool test, still waiting on the results. I don't think they tested for ebv though.

I remember a woman from SA forum, who had symptoms of sleep disturbances and anxiety very similar to mine and @barbaar, during her log he mentioned being diagnosed with AMOEBAS by a Dr, who put her on metronidazole which made the sleep problems worse and resolved other symptoms... he eventually over I dont know a year or more, recovered from the sleep and anxiety problem, and after 5 yrs post ssri was 100% normal

I was quite surprised nystatin (antifungal) also worked on PSSD for some, although not cured. Did you try that? I know it's not the same, but the direction is kinda similar.

I've seen other cases of people taking antibiotics for completely unrelated issues and having their PSSD cured, it's a weird one. With the Nystatin cases I imagine that they could have had a fungus instead of a parasite
