My Daughter who is 22 went to Tanzania 2.5 years ago with UCLA and lived with the Masais for 2 months, got severely sick and since then Drs have not been able to identify what she has. She had 3 endoscopies, colonoscopies, MRI, stool and blood tests, and many many more. So far she has lost 40 pounds, has severe stomach pains, diareahh ,with blood, nausea vision change, fatigue, body aches, some memory loss etc.
She was tested for Bilharzia when she first came back but was negative. All the other tests were negative too. They found bacteria in her lower intestines that does not go away with the strongest antibiotics.
She is hospitalized now to gain weight and they have done all the test again but all negative. Do you know of any Drs in the US that might be familiar with the African deasies or cures? So far UCLA< UCSF ansd Stanford GI's were not able to. We are in LA now. Please help.

Thank you
