Anyone familiar with the concept of biofilms? my doc wants to explore this as a possibility for my persistent gut dysbiosis and GI issues. It can be treated with enzymes and EDTA - i started taking lumbrokinase but cannot tolerate it so i had to stop. i would like to treat this before i start my next round of antibiotics for parasites

Good to see you Jason. Sorry, I don't know anything about this but it sounds like you have a doctor that is trying to help. I'm going to follow this so I can learn somthing.

Hi Jason:

The following is one of several similar definitions I found for 'biofilm':

"A complex structure adhering to surfaces that are regularly in contact with water, consisting of colonies of bacteria and usually other microorganisms such as yeasts, fungi, and protozoa that secrete a mucilaginous protective coating in which they are encased. Biofilms can form on solid or liquid surfaces as well as on soft tissue in living organisms, and are typically resistant to conventional methods of disinfection. Dental plaque, the slimy coating that fouls pipes and tanks, and algal mats on bodies of water are examples of biofilms. While biofilms are generally pathogenic in the body, causing such diseases as cystic fibrosis and otitis media, they can be used beneficially in treating sewage, industrial waste, and contaminated soil."

How does your doc think you acquired the 'biofilm', which caused your parasite infection history? If all your parasites created a 'biofilm' structure in your body, they might be very resistant to treatment. How are you doing with antiparasitic treatment?

I read more info about how biofilm bacterial infections are very resistant to traditional antibiotic treatment. I also found info about treating parasitic biofilm infections. Just 'google' biofilm parasitic infections to read more.

This makes for some interesting reading. I have found some things referencing lyme. What was your reaction to the lumbrokinase? Was it a die off reaction? It is interesting what the lumbrokinase is made from.

I have suffered from non-celiac gluten intolerance for over 15 years, and been completely gluten-free for the last 7 years. We recently moved to the Southern United States where you might guess it's very difficult to eat out (compared to my home state of California).

I started doing research on biofilms and enzyme therapy and put myself on a regimen for one month before I tried eating organic wheat based foods.

The result has been incredible with such a sense of freedom I thought I would never experience again.

I shared my experience with my best friend who is also gluten intolerant and she has had the same result.

Be careful of kinase enzymes. They seem to cause more problems than they solve. There are additional supplements you might consider that will reduce the herxheimer reaction which makes you feel sicker than ever.
