Olive Leaf Extract
I had Giardia Lamblia for 3 years!! Was on Flagyl a few times, which did NOTHING! Somebody told me about olive leaf extract and after 1 little bottle I got rid of it. It is amazing.
(North York, On, Canada)
I'm happy for you that you got rid of this nasty protozoa with olive leaf extract. Could you tell me for how long you took and how? Also what was the strengh of the extract?

I expelled giardia cysts after ingesting Wormwood Combination remedy. It contains quassia, which specifically addresses giardia. I had had a giardia infection for many years. I supplemented with raw garlic and used a zapper as well.
I had giardia and I want to encourage all who have it: it is possible to get rid of it by natural remedies. It may take a long time, several months, but it is possible:
After doing a research on this website and internet I decided not to take Flagyl or Metrinazol or any other pharmaceuticals. At first I tried Hulda Clark anti-parasite treatment. I think it did not work for me completely. Then I took Allicin garlic capsules (6 a day) for 3 months. It definitely helped, but I still got cramps occasionally, my stool was not as it had been before and felt that I still had it inside me.
Then I started to take oregano oil (oregano oil with 80% carvacol, bought it on the internet). Make sure it is pure organic oil. I also bought empty capsules in a pharmacy. I filled the capsule with coconut or flax seed oil by half, then put 2-3 drops of oregano oil - you may start with one drop, as it is very strong), closed the capsule, swallowed and drank one full glass of water. The capsule will melt in your stomach or even in your colon a do the job. Take 3 capsules a day, preferably on an empty stomach. You may need to do this for at least a month and then you will see if it works for you.
I also stopped eating dairy products (milk, cheese, cream, yogurt), cut on starches and hardly any sugar for at least a month, and I ate a lot of raw vegetables, drank a lot of herb tea and water. And also I drank fresh green vegie juices.
I have been told by a hemotologist that oil of oregano kills liver flukes. Hope it helps.
I've used Oil of Oregano for mouth infections, to help cleanse intestinal parasites, as well as ward off yeast infections. I use the liquid form which tastes really bad and burns. Finally I got smart and now buy empty capsules from the health food store and put 2-3 drops in a capsule. Now I get the full benefits without the awful taste. I also brush my teeth with it sometimes and still use it as a rinse if my mouth or gums are sore (I dilute with warm water). I always keep a bottle handy.
You can mix it with toothpaste/mouthwash...just a drop! Just tastes like the spice oregano but, a little bit stronger!

If oregano oil is to be used for parasites, make sure it is oil of WILD oregano. There is a big difference. The oregano used for cooking does not contain a phenol called Carvacrol which is antiseptic, antibiotic, antifungal, antiviral, anti-inflammatory, antivenom and antiparasitic. Do some research on Wild Oil of Oregano to find out more about it and to choose a good quality product. I use a drop or two in the oil when I oil-pull. A drop or two under the tongue when I feel a cold coming on or have more congestion than normal has been beneficial to me. Just make sure you get the WILD OIL OF OREGANO and not a derivative from the ordinary oregano.
Hi there, I have had numerous parasites including blasto. Papaya leaf capsules kill parasites for me every time. I take one 3 times a day with meals. The length of treatment depends on the bug but I would do 7 weeks to be sure as you have to kill all the eggs even after the parasites are dead. Good luck, you will feel so much better after! I used antibiotics once for parasites and never again because the papaya leaf works so well and is good for your gut.
When first I read of papaya seeds for parasites, I swallowed them whole, from one whole fruit, to no effect. I also ate the flesh. Well actually my BM was easier, but I could see many of those large round seeds clearly. More recently I purchased another papaya, this time I crunched up the seeds from the whole fruit (bitter, and very peppery) and I did notice my stool had a fleshy thing attached. I was surprised at this because I had been taking a parasite guard liquid extract of wormwood, cloves, black walnut. With no sighting. I will now be making my own papaya seed tincture with Apple Cider Vinegar as I know this works for me. I have digestion issues, I believe my stomach was not able to open up the whole seeds. If digestion is optimal, then may be able to swallow whole and get benefit. A note, when I was taking the wormwood mix the instructions said to take three times a day, I sometimes also put this in enteric coated capsules for direct intestinal impact. I did not get the results I saw with the one concentrated dose of papaya, and I was not expecting any because of the wormwood. Also, I should have started with a teaspoon of seeds and built up slowly, but because I had been following anti candida diet of no sugar, fruit or carbs, I believed my parasites starved and weakened, and envisioned no herx, or healing crisis, nor was there one.
Papaya Seeds for parasites. I have had long standing problems with parasites, some of them pinworms, others never identified but caused a terrible rash around butt and vagina and of course sleepless nights.
A simple and inexpensive cure: I blended 1 cup of papaya seeds with 2 small bananas (it just have to be edible as the seeds are like pepper) and ate the whole thing. I lay there and could feel how it became quiet in there. This might be too strong for some but I was desperate. So, one might want to start with a lower dose as recommended but that is not how I personally operate.
Hi Lotusborn (or anyone else that might know) did you use the Papaya seeds straight from a fresh papaya? I have been using fresh garlic before going to bed and have seen the "white rice" in my bm that others talk about so would be keen to try your remedy. Thanks! PS I only found this site a couple of weeks ago but love it and thank everyone for their contributions. I already feel better than I have in the last 15 years!
I've had much success expelling parasites with papaya seeds. I buy fresh papayas and eat the seeds. I chew 1 to 2 teaspoons then swallow with water. I do this 3 times a day and continue for several weeks.
Using fresh ingredients is always better than encapsulated. For example, wormwood, black walnut and cloves are antiparasitic herbs but if they're not fresh, they won't work. For cloves, they must be fresh, non-irradiated. Usually organic cloves are non-irradiated but if it doesn't say on the bottle, ask to be sure. I grind them myself in a coffee grinder and put them in empty gelatin capsules.
I'm not sure I can go with the claim "If wormwood, black walnut, and cloves aren't fresh, they won't work". Tons of people all over this site have used those ingredients dried and had very good results.
(Michelbach-le-bas, Alsace, France)
Jok, I am very surprised to hear that you eat papaya seeds as they seem to be very toxic. I always remove them very carefully before making a juice although I don't remove the seeds of any other fruit! I am confused now....
(Rustenburg, North West South Africa)
Hi Francisca, Pawpaw seeds also contain enzymes to digest food so it cannot be dangerous.
Hi Francisca, My friend whilst living in Nth Queensland was told about this remedy and knows folk who do it for a few days every year as a preventative. They apparently also aid digestion so she used them instead of digestive enzymes. They can be dried and mixed in with whole peppercorns and ground over food.
(Quezon City, Philippines)
Papaya seeds are indeed used by the natives here in the Philippines as purgative. I have seen some websites recommending that the seeds be air-dried and then pounded, but here in this country the natives just cut open a ripe papaya and then scoop up the seeds and swallow them whole. Chewing is not suggested as the seeds may be too bitter for one's taste.
Papaya Seeds + Oregano Oil
I didn't realise I had parasites until I bought and ate a large papaya and the seeds over the course of 2 days.
Papaya seeds have been used for centuries to cure digestive problems (as I learnt in Thailand many years ago) as well as papaya leaf and the fruit itself. I was also taking (and topically applying) oregano oil to cure a skin infection.
The combination of both of these unknowingly killed and expelled a couple of worms. I'm now doing a 7 day fast, only drinking herbal teas (peppermint and green tea) as well as ingesting essential oils diluted with olive oil - clove, ginger, oregano and taking apple cider vinegar twice a day. I passed a few more yesterday and the day before and can feel more of the blighters moving. I am desperately hoping this may cure my severe food intolerances but the combination is definitely working.
Microbeformulas.com has a whole parasite protocol. They use mimosa pudica seed caps to encapsulate the parasites. Dr. Klinghardt (Sophiahi.com) says old methods for parasite control don't work well anymore--not strong enough, and that they also harbor heavy metals in their biofilm. He says if you become ill on a parasite cleanse, you are just making them give off more toxins.
Parasites are in the body feeding off the toxic chemicals already in it. If you kill them off too quickly before doing a cleanse first, you will get very sick and nauseated from the toxins they are not digesting, as well as the toxicity from the parasites' excrement as well.
See if your symptoms match.
1- did you start with just feeling exhausted all the time?
2- heavy feeling in chest but no cold?
3- panic attack feeling like heart racing
4- rashes started to appear
5- started to feel things on you like no seeums or fleas?
6- progresses into crawling?
7- loss of appetite or uncontrollable carb craving?
8- intermittent constipation / diarrhea?
10- single line lesions? Looks like a scratch
11- bladder, urinary or kidney, genital issues
12- every test is negative?
13- any nodules?
14- you can feel where they are and collect them?
15- they prefer hair follicles- anywhere on the body?
16- you sometimes get a jabbing pain?
17- you get brown marks where you know they are. (hyperpigmentation)
18 you also get red dots
19-all kinds of things come out of your skin and they all look different? Black, white, Sand like?
If you said yes to most of these, investigate 2 parasites. Filariasis and Schitosmias.
Then the different species. Some go intestinal, some bladder and some cutaneous (skin)
both have zootonic species.
In dogs, it's called H Americana.
look up life cycle of Schitosmias and symptoms
life cycle of filariasis and symptoms.
think back - way back - to any places you traveled when looking at the region of each species. Did you swim in a lake? Eat local food abroad? Are you all of sudden remembering a bout of food poisoning?
these things can lay dormant for years.
Step 1 - get the best parasite cleanse you can afford!
look for my other post on Earth Clinic's morgellons page - morgellons =parasite for more details.
best of luck to everyone for a diagnosis and speedy recovery!
Hi Darlene, what do you suggest for this condition?
Myself and a couple of family members have schistosomiasis (undiagnosed) as I lived in Peruvian jungle for a couple of years and was exposed to several.
The symptoms are very similar to mite infestation, candida, morgellons, many different parasite infections. it's so varied that it's difficult to target.
You mention other posts you've made.. can you please be specific?
(Vero Beach, FL)
Yes to all symptoms. Have known it was a parasite infection 4 years now. Hyper infection now affecting whole body. Help has not come after many different type doctor visits. I strongly suspect it has been in my body decades because of past health problems and stronger location concentration of them in my body. Suffering is great. Have found that Borax brings them out of skin, but they are endless.
Hello, I'm looking for good labs that do very accurate parasite stool testing. The tests offered here in Toronto are microscope test which are not accurate to distinguish between some protozoa spp. So I need DNA test or antigen test. Thank you very much.
(Oakville, Ontario, Canada)
Not sure where one can go for parasite testing, however, I don know through my own experience that if you use grapefruit seed extract oil in water, it will kill parasites in your system. I have use this when traveling aboard to 3rd world countries and have had much success. One can buy this product at any health food store. Good luck
(Milwaukee, Wi, Usa)
A Parasitologist or any Internist... either could do these tests, BUT there is no test that is very accurate... It's usually only 25% accurate!
Try labs Phoenix Arizona. Cutting edge testing for biofilm and associated pathogens.
Bioman, I am pretty sure you accidentally typed "Try" Labs instead of the actual name, "Fry" Labs in Arizona. Here's the website, http://frylabs.com, and yes, they do detailed, comprehensive testing, and are known for their Lyme disease testing.
(Exeter, Missouri, Usa)
There are about 4 parasite testing labs that I know of that will definitely be definative. Here is one I have used recently, located in Arizona:
Parasitology Center Inc. 1-480-767-2522
It is a good place to get started. God bless.
(Christchurch, New Zealand)
I used metametrix. They test for DNA in stool, so dead worms are okay as well. They test for bacteria and fungus too, but they are expensive. But they found an answer to my problem!
The only doctor left in the country performing colon wall swab/scape test using sigmoidscope and his own lab is Dr. Kevin Cahill in NY. MANY have finally found cures for their illnesses after years even decades of suffering. Standard medical stool testing will not pick up many parasites unless your stool is teaming with parasites. Parasites live on the colon wall beneath the mucus. This renowned doctor is nearing retirement. See him soon.
Genova Diagnostics (formerly Great Smokies Diagnostic Lab), Asheville, North Carolina has always been recommended by my practitioner.
I am using turpentine to kill parasites in the colon and microbes in body. I have started with a few drops 2x/week. I am interested in knowing what is the limit that a person should work up to? Some use turp with sugar, honey, oil. How would the difference in a carrier affect the use of turp on the body? Is there anything that needs to be considered as far as diet etc that would be helpful? Thanks
You can find more info on turpentine usage on Dr. Jennifer Daniels website....I also have been using turpentine for my horse.
I found an chart for worming farm animals with the turpentine to oil ratios, 1.5 ml turpentine for every 50 pounds body weight, and for every 1.5 ml you add 7.5 ml oil.....mix it very well with the oil... this shouldn't be taken long term.
I will be visiting rural parts of India for sometime and am wondering what is the best way to clean vegetables and fruits, considering their source of water may not be the cleanest.
Anyone tried cleaning with Grape seed extract or similar products that may help keep the bugs out of my system? Many thanks!
ACV (diluted in water) is great for cleaning vegetables, and if you get nauseous from something you ate could stave off any sickness.
(Milwaukee, Wi, Usa)
Diluted bleach and h20 works great. Soak for 1 minute then rinse well.
(Quezon City, Philippines)
Has anyone tried washing fruits and veggies and then soaking them in water with dissolved flour? I've heard this method gets rid of the pesticides that are sprayed on the produce. Used tea leaves soaked in water may do the trick, too.
Pyrantel Pamoate Parasite Killer
Pyrantel Paomoate kills things that turpentine won't. Kills Numerous Parasites. Is Extremely Safe. Should Be Used On ALL Pet Dogs And Cats. Used Worldwide To Kill Pin Worms And Other Nasty Things In Humans.
Pyrantel pamoate is an oral medication used for the treatment of infections caused by intestinal parasites like roundworm, hookworm, and pinworm.
It has been included in the Model List of Essential Medicines by the World Health Organization, though this listing is meant only for human use.
May Treat: Ascariasis · Enterobiasis · Mixed intestinal helminthiasis Dosage is by weight.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TO EVERYONE.
It seems often when I eat raw garlic or onion I get a stomachache. Then when I get a stomachache like that I will do a water enema and I always pass worms. It seems raw garlic and raw onion are great for killing parasites.
Can I break it into pieces ands swallow like a tablet?
Absolutely! I chop it into small pieces, let the pieces sit for about 10 min's, then put the pieces on a spoon and wash them down with a few good chugs of water.
(New Orleans, La)
Have u tried Diatomaceous Earth... Ingesting it daily for as many as 30-90 days is supposed to rid u of parasites internally. Giardia have a hard outer shell & that's the requirement for Diatomaceous Earth to work cuz its microscopic jagged edges pierce the exoskeletons of insects & parasite & gradually tears them up, causing them to dehydrate & die. When they (& intestinal worms) ingest the DE, it does the same thing internally. It's worth a try & the health benefits of this natural, organic product could pay off in additional ways as it is a natural source of sillica to help your collagen development &does so much for hair/skin/nails & even cleans your colon! Look it up..... But mind u, all natural remedies involve longer processes to healing.... But who cares if it actually works & isn't harmful? :)
Raw Garlic helped with intestinal parasites
1 large clove of garlic chewed slowly (and painfully) one time in the morning with nothing else in my stomach.
While in Peru I got diarrhea and had chills and a fever. I called the local emergency clinic and a doctor came to see me the next morning. They analyzed a stool sample and found that I had giardia. I was prescribed tinidazol for the giardia and ciprofloxacine for whatever else might be giving me the fever. I took the medication religiously. A few days later upon returning home, my fever was gone, but the diarrhea remained. I went to see my doctor and they took another stool sample. However, since things were so bad, I decided to see what I could do about it in the mean time. Hence the garlic bomb. From the moment I took that first garlic bomb my digestive system has behaved very well, i.e no rush trips to the bathroom. Since it was so effective, I decided to take the raw garlic in the morning and evening until things were entirely back to normal. At this point (3 days later) I am about at 90% normal. 2 days ago I started a detox cleanse kit from trader joes. It consists of fiber pills, degestive pills and a liver pill. Today I am thinking of adding goldenseal to the mix.
(San Diego, California)
This is a method for taking raw garlic ... the garlic spring roll bomb.
Crush 1 clove of garlic onto a small piece of a softened Thai spring roll sheet. Roll it up into a small garlic burrito - then down the hatch. It goes down real smooth without getting any garlic on the inside of your mouth.
I'm sorry but ONE clove of garlic isn't going to do anything whatsoever. I've eaten garlic plenty of times in the past and I still have my tapeworm.
What works for one person may not work for another... I have a very sensitive system and 1 clove of garlic sent my whole body into a major purge. It's definitely working! But to your point, there are many types of parasites and likely several methods are needed to remove them entirely. Thanks to everyone for your valuable input.

I've been suffering from Giardiasis for almost 1. 5 years. I got it in Sarasota, Florida when I was swimming in the swimming pool of my husband's parents. Oh My God! I've visited 10 doctors in 4 states (Fl, RI, MA, NY) and they couldn't find anything. I've gone through 2 endoscopies, almost 30 stool samples, blood tests, Ultra sound and CAT scan of my abdominal area. I am Russian and I had to fly to my mother country to get help from Russian doctors. Sorry for that but American doctors are money diggers. In Russia my blood was tested and antibodies showed that I had Giardia. I had terrible symptoms:red spots (allergic reactions) on my face, brown pigment spots, painful gallbladder, pain under my belly button, irritated bowel syndrome, yeast, hair loss, fragile nails, numb tongue (Iron deficiency), cracked lips (vitamin B deficiency), malabsorption, bloating, chronicle fatigue, depression, aggressiveness etc. The doctor-infectionist prescribed many different antibiotics (Metronidazole, Albendazole, Tinidazole, Nifuroxazide ) along with herbs to stimulate my gallbladder, pancreas and clean my liver. They helped for a while but they killed all my intestinal flora. Now I drink tea with Birch leaves (russian remedy for parasites) 3 times a day, eat only organic food, take 1 tbs of Flax seed oil a day, drink aloe Vera juice, eat raw garlic 3 cloves a day, mix Spirulina with organic goat yogurt, eat Coconut oil 3 times a day, take probiotics, get shots of Vitamin B complex and Vitamin B12 once a week, eat beef because I have anemia. I don't eat sugar, bread, canned food. Did garlic help me? Nooooo. Am I cured? Not yet:-((( I am struggling for my health cursing Florida and my husband's parents who mocked me everyday because I didn't swim in their swimming pool. Then I decided to shut them up and you know the result. C-- Pharmacy in the USA sells only crap. I bought Selenium there. God, it was mixed with yeast. I have to be very careful what I buy in the USA. It takes time for me to find clean organic products without starch, GMO, yeast, gluten, sugar. It drives my husband crazy but I want to L-I-V-E and be healthy again. After reading some posts I am going to buy MSM. Thank you.
(New York, Ny)
It makes me laugh that I am a human being (Homo Sapiens) can't do anything with one tiny cell protozoa Giardia. I just wanted to give advice to those who suffer from parasites.
1. Wash your hands ALWAYS!!!
2. Clean your apartment or house with bleach. Do laundry every week and wash the sheets in hot water.
3. Get rid of pets. I love pets but my health is very precious to me.
4. Eat and cook at home.
5. Eat organic food, especially vegetables and fruits, different cereals like brown rice, buckwheat, corn (polenta), barley etc to get essential minerals.
6. Don't eat junkie food from fast food, don't buy frozen food. Parasites like it.
7. Avoid alcohol, sugar, canned food. Don't drink black/green tea, coffee, energy drinks (any stimulators). Avoid milk!!!! If you need calcium, please drink Yogurt without sugar or Kefir.
8. DON'T TAKE MULTIVITAMINS while you are killing them. As a russian doctor said to me that I would feed them and my treatment wouln't be effective.
9. Take probiotics to restore intestine flora.
10. Be persistent with doctors. You have to convince them that you are not just crazy. After 1.5 years of struggling I was able to find an infectionist in NYC and convince her that I had Giardia. She prescribed me Flagyl. It was a little bit late because the parasites had damaged me a lot.
11. Be prepared that it will take a long time to get rid of them because they don't want to leave the host's body with plenty of vitamins and food.
12. Watch the movie "Food incorporation". It will reveal the truth.
(North York, On, Canada)
Regarding your Giardiasis, there is an herb that has some activity against it it's called sarcosephalus but I don't know where you can get it. You are supposed to drink the tea from the leaves of this herb. It's also called African peach or guinea peach. Good luck.
(North York, On, Canada)
If you cannot get sarcosephalus leaves, try to find a vet who can give you the vaccine GiardiaVax. The reason why the vaccine against Girdia is available for animals and not for human is because the pharmaceutical industry is not interested in ending the problem once for all. A vaccine against Girdia for human means for them less sales of Flagyl, Nitazoxanide, and other medicines as well. Good luck.
(North York, On, Canada)
From the little research I did about Giardia is that is difficult to treat without a proper diet and the appropriate gun. You mention that a person with Giardia should avoid tea. I think that the green tea is very good against parasites. It has a lot of Tannin which will denature them, as Ted explained in another post. You can try Sweet annie and vidanga ( Ayurveda antiparasite) if the sarcosephalus leaves are not available for you. You can also take caprylic acid which is a very good antiparasite and will give you energy. So you don't crave a lot because caprylic acid can provide energy for you and the bug cannot use it ( It's amazing!! Is it?)
If the above doest work than try a combo of :
Ornidazol, Quinacrine, Paromomcyn for 2 weeks ( doctor think that 4 days is enough but that is far from the truth. You have to continue killing them until there are just few cysts that the immune system can handle them). Or Flagel, Furazolidone, Bacitracin Zinc ( I'm trying to avoid cross resistance as much as possible). If you start feeling better, don't let the temptation of starch overcome you and switch the treatment from defense into attack ( Taking immune booster such AHCC, Iodide, L-arginine and L-glutamine to build the tight junctions in the gut). Good luck.
(New York, Ny)
Hi! Did you suffer from Giardiasis? I curse that day when we moved to FL. As russian doctors explained to me I have to avoid tea. I drink tea - a mixture of herbs to stimulate my gallbladder. I even tried a russian remedy for giardiasis "Birch Tar". One russian homeopath doctor recommended to mix 10 drops of tar with milk and drink it twice a day for 10 days, then rest for 10 days and repeat this procedure 3 times. Parasites like milk and when they eat milk they eat TAR also. I've tried it only once. It was so nasty that I stopped. I need to start it again.
Since I've got Giardiasis in the USA, I think I have to try american remedies because russian ones don't work. I've taken Ornidazole also - no effect. All chemical pills help me for 10 days. When I stop taking them, I get the same symptoms in 10 days. 10 days is their cycle. I've read many forums in my language and doctors say it is not possible to get rid of Giardiasis. I'll die eventually. I have vitamin B and Iron deficiencies. It's terrible. I hardly have energy to go to a grocery shop to buy food. I can't work... Only spirulina saves my life a little bit. I am so angry at american doctors. They could have helped me in the beginning. Only after 1.5 years one american doctor agreed with me and prescribed Flagyl. I doubt that it will help me because I've already taken Metronidazole. A russian doctor told me that Giradiasis demages a human being's body about 90% opening doors to other diseases, viruses etc.
It is just beginning of hell.... After reading some posts on this site I take Organic Coconut oil 3 times a day and I take MSM also. It's been 2 weeks and I don't see any improvements. I am going to buy Golden-seal and Black Walnut hull. If somebody had experience with Giradiasis, please share it with me. I'll appreciate it very much. P. S. Personal THANK YOU to Tommy from North York, On, Canada. I don't give up!
(North York, On, Canada)
It's my pleasure if I can help you. That what earth clinic is here for. I mentioned to you that one week or 10 days treatment won't work. You are dealing with a protozoa that has cyst resistant to the anti parasite. You have to continue the treatment for at least 4 weeks. Milk is not good. It feeds the parasite but I never know about tar with milk. You have also to take more than one anti parasite. When you take one at once, you give it a chance to become resistant and we don't want to get to that situation. I think that you might have more than one parasite. If you can afford a comprehensive DNA stool test from Methamerix that will be the best for you. Blastocystis hominis is the worst parasite and it modulates the immune system to the point that we start having no B cells producing the IgA.
In the mean time, try Vidanga ( Ayurvedic herb) and Bai Tou Weng Tang ( Pulsatilla Decoction)from a Chinese herbalist. Also try sweet annie tea with that. For your energy you need to take Caprylic acid. This acid taken by the athletic because it delivers more energy than glucose and it kills the parasites and fungus also. Avoid grains. In your other post you mentioned that grains can be taking but that is not good. Grains are rich in Starch which is a polymer of glucose and more glucose means more colonies of the protozoa. You can also take colloidal silver. For the best results, you have to take these herbs together( Vidanga, Sweet annie, Bai Tou Weng Tang). Don't take capsules. You have to make a tea or a decoction of these herbs. If nothing works than use the treatment I described before for AT LEAST 4 WEEKS. Could you tell me the treatments you took before? and for how long? Did you take Bactrim?
PS: Don't take hydrogen peroxide because Giardia has catalase and it resists it more than human cells.
Hi Vasilisa, I hope you are doing well. I wanted to share with you with a recipe I read in russian health magazine The Healthy Way of Life (available in NY), #10 from Oct 2012. On p. 85 one woman shares her success curing Giardia with horseradish. She grated 1 tsp. of horseradish, mixed it with either sour cream or vegetable oil and took it in a morning and at bedtime (1 tsp each time) for 5 days. The only contraindication she mentioned was kidney problems. Hope this helps. God Bless!
This may be late news, but to Vasiisa: giardia lives in cool/cold running water like streams. It is not found in Florida in a pool. It needs high oxygen. Try another approach to find the cause of your illness.
Good luck! Gut problems are miserable and frustrating. I had giardia from my city's water supply, from a creek, in 1983. I have had decades of misery from the damage.
This is for Tommy in North York, but anyone free to jump in. I have Blastocystis, not sure how bad. Would the concoction you recommend also work for that? Where did you come across the information that this parasite is particularly damaging? Thank you.
I am currently only using DE, but have more ideas from these pages about what to add in. My symptoms are lots of gas, fatigue, achy muscles and joints. And sometimes itchy anus. I guess there are other parasites too then?
Grant - Wow!!!! Love your idea/solution. I've downed huge amounts of raw garlic many times in my life. Very good to know. Even a flattened piece of bread would work if one doesn't have the thai wraps on hand. VERY COOL IDEA - even for extremely bitter herbal extracts. For my cat too! Smoother even than a pill. Capsules are a pain to fill. This sounds faster.
(Somewhere in Europe)
Re: the idea of this garlic spring roll bomb
This idea sounds great.
However, speaking from my own experience, chewing the food is not optional. You need to thoroughly masticate your food before you can digest it. If you don't masticate your garlic, your body won't be able to digest it. Speaking from my own experience, if there is undigested garlic, then the body will generate a garlic-smelling gas that is a lot more offensive than garlic breath.
