Presentation Description:
Parasites are older than humans. They exist at every level of the food chain and infect plants and animals of all kinds. Intestinal parasites are found worldwide, including industrialized nations and cause a multitude of health problems. Given all we know about parasites, they still tend to be ignored or undertreated in cases of complex illness. This talk will focus on intestinal parasites as a common, maintaining factor in complex, chronic illness. We will review how intestinal parasites enter the human body and how they affect human physiology. There will be a thorough discussion of clinical signs and symptoms, diagnostic criteria, and treatment protocols using real case examples.
Goals and Objectives:
1. Understand how intestinal parasites affect human physiology.
2. Recognize the clinical signs and symptoms of intestinal parasites.
3. Understand how to design an effective treatment protocol.

Dr. Pedro graduated from the National University of Natural Medicine in 2005. While there, she had the good fortune to study classical homeopathy under Will Taylor, MD. His vast knowledge of medicine and homeopathy inspired her to listen carefully, ask the right questions and treat thoroughly using all modalities necessary.

Her current practice focus is on complex, chronic illness including autoimmune disease, mold illness, gut dysfunction, and Lyme disease. She utilizes modern diagnostic tools to help uncover the root cause of illness and employs a variety of modalities to treat that cause including herbal medicine, nutritional supplements, and homeopathy.

At the heart of her treatment philosophy is Docere – doctor as teacher. Teaching patients to listen to their bodies and care for themselves by using their energy wisely, getting good quality sleep, eating healthy food, and exercising appropriately. This forms the foundation for all other treatments.

Intestinal parasites became a focus of her practice in 2019 when many of her mold sick patients, especially those with histamine issues, were not getting better. A deep dive into testing and research showed chronic intestinal parasites to be the major contributing factor in their continued illness.
