I have had Entamoeba histolytica and Giardia Lamblia in the past (picked up in Malaysia). Both were treated with antibiotics - apparently successfully - but then "triggered off" celiac disease.
I have never really been well since infection with these parasites and I am interested in the increasing school of thought that auto-immune disease may in fact have parasites as their root cause. I have seen a number of anecdotal reports of UC resolving after parasite cleanses for example. A gluten free diet has absolutely not solved all my issues by any stretch of the imagination.
We worm dogs on a regular basis and a lot of people online appear to do regular parasite cleanses with spectacular effects - not just in terms of what they expel but in terms of how they feel afterwards. Hence my interest..
