The grapefruit seed extract got rid of my giardia! It was awful when it started dying off but it WILL NOT KILL YOUR FRIENDLY BACTERIA. I took no probiotics and took 5 capsules of gse everyday for 8 months and it CURED IT. I was sick for 4 years! with diarrhea. It did cause a lot of gut trouble but that was the 'die off' just keep taking it!

One more thing, the "natural" way didn't work for me. I've tried EVERYTHING! The GSE that Jeanie (above) used helped, but didn't do the trick. If you use GSE, remember to take it at the same time everyday like an antibiotic (which it is), and don't forget to take probiotics too. If you don't take the probiotics, you're setting yourself up for gut trouble.

I went to Mexico a year ago and after that I have had all the symptons of giardia and now chronic giardia getting like a stick with weight loss, quite scary really. I have read just about everything in a hope of curing this worst nightmare giardia!
I have been to the doctors but they know little if any other than metronidazole or tinidazole. Metronidazole when tested has caused cancer and tumours in rats and mice, kinda oputs you off with side effects reported as well. So looking at natural alternatives.
Eat little and often, plenty of fresh fruit and drink plenty of fluids.
If you have yellow feces take fresh coconut juice, grapefruit seed extract capsule, enzymes, vitimins and C vit. I take 3 capsules of Viridian grapfruit seed extract 400mg. 400 billion, in capsules prebiotic & probiotic from Boots.2 a day!
Now the thing to kill these critters I am working on is take the grapfruit seed extract capsules 3 a day for 3 months then go down to 2 for another 3 months, then one a day for 1 year.
Probiotis 2 a day
Fresh Coconut juice helps with malnutrition
Fresh organic clove capsules 3 a day they kill the eggs.
100% COCONUT OIL, THIS CONTAINS 'MCFA' This kills giardia parasites it breaks the shell.
Drink lemon juice in water! herbal teas Fennel, clove, ginger, cinnimon etc; Peppermint tea & fennel is good, settles tummy.
Fruits papaya has enzymes, the Mexicans eat raw advacados for parasites. fresh pineapple.
Please contact me if this helps you, Good luck! I am from England it's not well known over here but I think the happy faces are spreading over here now! Lets hope the doctors pay more attention and help rather than look at you blank especially when tests come back negative as they normally do, the NHS tests must be useless because I know I have it by my symptoms they fit like a glove. Love to hear from you! Metronidazole, trinidazole will be the last option for me to try.

Ive had Giardia for a few months now, have 2 courses of antibiotics (Metronodizal), but still feel as if the Giardia is present.
The worst sympton at the moment is that ive lost considerable weight and feel dizzy and very weak.
Can anyone please help me or advise me if this is the norm for this complaint.
Many thanks
We are in the same town & both have it, co-incidence? It must be something environmental. Myself & 2 year old diagnosed with it during the summer. Have spent time in the garden, have no pets but many wild animal visitors. Could this be the route of infection? I have had the above symptoms also, impossible to function with young children. Just finished 2nd course of Metronidazole, first 7 days, 2nd 10 days which made me incredibly poorly. Now off dairy, sugar & alcohol in the hope I am clear when I receive test results. Docs can give no advice except that it is treatable. Funny that they failed to notify me that my previous test results lay unchecked for 3 weeks and only read them once I rang to say I felt ill again. Have you had any improvement since your last post?

Just went to a tropical disease specialist in Nairobi, Kenya. I've had Blasto H. and Chronic Giardia for some time.(as confirmed by DNA stool testing). He gave me 400mg Albendezol x 2 days at 6pm (timing is important). Then at bedtime x 2 days, 2000mg of tinadizole (antiparasitic). The Albendezol "stuns" or paralyzes the giardia suckers, then while stunned, the tinadizole kills the protoaza. He claims a 99% success rate. Hope that helps, I haven't noticed a difference yet but he is a world reknowned expert.

Metronidazole, Tinidazole only kills the adults but not the eggs I read, so a 5 days course of these pills will make you feel better for a few days but in 7-10 days later the eggs will hatch out again 10.000 each female lays, male dies after mating.

Maybe tinidazole one doze 2g is better, slightly less side efects than metronidazole so they say, then take another one 7-10 days later might do the trick.
Or you could take a course of tinidazole for 14 days, 250mg 3 times a day that would cover the eggs hatching out maybe. I read a lady took it for 20 days and it did the trick for her.
I read you can stun the adults with raw pumpkin seeds. I would add clove capsules as they say they kill the eggs. Hope this helps!

Joanne, I am interested to know where you have found all this information. I have scanned quite a few search engines, but info is so limited. I have followed your advice on coconut oil & grapefruit seed extract in the hope that I can do this without such debilitating medicines. My doctor although kind has not been a fountain of knowledge!
A friend also suggested Aloe Vera juice to cleanse the colon as it works for her Colitis and though not proven her gastric consultant states he has seen benefits even though he does not believe in such remedies.

I did not know I had giardia until after I had developed malabsorption problems which included defieciencies in Vit B12 and Vit C. I also developed an irregular heartbeat. Because I am a senior citizen and had not lost any weight, none of the doctors believed I had giardia although I told them that a veterinarian had diagnosed one of my cats with it. Only after I insisted, was I ever tested. It was positive.
I have completed my second round of Flagl and am not very optimistic that it is gone, but have found the sublingual Vit B12 very helpful combatting fatique and brain fog. I am also taking Vit D in softgels. The sublingual bypass the gut where pills are not absorbed.

I forgot to say that I followed the Flagl with a herb mixture, Fresh Green Black Walnut Wormwood complex made by Now, as directed on the bottle and have been feeling much better. I appear to be normal again. Also, I made a typo in previous post; I meant to say Vitamin D instead of C. This morning my heart was beating regularly again. I am beginning to believe I am cured, but only time will tell. Other people's posts helped me so I hope this will help others.

Hi Francis
I type in search herbal remmedies for giardia or giardiasis or information on giardia.
From what I have read it is best to get a Colonic irrigation done first as parasites can hide under the debris in your colon, so it makes sense to have one done. Taymount Clinic, Hitchin, Herts. Tel: 01462 712500. ENGLAND. Or look one up near you!
I am taking Nutri, Berberine & grapefruit seed Formula, 2 capsules 3 times a day.(Brilliant)
Allicin Max 2 or 3 capsules a day. Allicin is the main component from a garlic that has cured MRSA in hospital patients where anitibiotics have failed to do so. Allicin cures so many things, parasites as well.(Brilliant)
I take clove capsules 1 every other day! 450mg they kill the eggs.
I take prebiotics and probiotics as well.
Fresh Coconut, drink the juice and grate the coconut up and eat some of it and keep the rest in fridge and eat daily.
Grate fresh carrots in morning and eat or juice some, parasites hate carrots.
papaya, advocados, pineapple.(Fresh)
Drink herbal teas Fennel, ginger & lemon also cinnermon. Drink Lemon juice in water after meals.
Cut out:- Sugars, milk, dairy products parasites love these things.
Eat: Fresh fruits, Fresh green veg.
High fibres - low carbs.
They hate acid things bitter things grapefruit juice.
I have had the fast heart beat, pain in the middle of chest like a heart attack, short of breath, Bloated stomach, pains in stomach, lost weight through no appetite. All the things above have started working for me, so I must be doing something right! I hope it helps you! My doctor thought I had angina, I nearly believed him because of my symptoms and I felt so ill but those symptoms have subsided since taking the above things and I do feel better than I did thankfully.
A lot of what you read on the internet may not always be correct but there is a lot of good information as well to maybe help you, it has helped me!

I think I have found one thing that seems to halt the effects of giardia. Would anyone like to try this and see if it makes them feel better and back to almost normal. I can not say yet if it cures giardia but it definately stops the awful effects of giardia. It stops the weight loss and makes you feel hungry again. Also you can sleep better and feel so much better. Do drink plenty of boiled or bottle water along with these capsules.
It is Allicinmax capsules 180mg! take 1 or 2 caps, first thing in the morning on an empty stomach 2 hours before food, then again in evening the same.
They do have allicin capsules in America 200mg.
I stopped taking the allicin to see what would happen and the effects started coming back, so I started on them again and I feel much better again, as I say I can not tell at this point if they will cure it or not but I shall keep taking them for 3 months or more and see if I improve any further.(They say no side effects either) They have cured MRSA and many other complaints, so maybe they can kill giardia given time to do so.
I have taken grapefruit seed extract capsules and they did not improve the symptoms like allicinmax.
Please write on here and say if they help you, as this will help other people on here!

If you have lost weight badly or have malabsorption from giardia then vitamins A-D-E & K most important Vit B12 will help you.

Teas: Fennel, ginger and peppermint will help settle your stomach.

Drugs like Metronidazole, tinidazole can give very bad side effects, please also take note: when Metro was tested it gave cancer to mice and rats, so if you are repeating doses and taking for longer periods. Tinidazole has not been tested but they say has almost the same ingredience as Metro.
Please read this vets comments on Metro Flaggl:
http://www.petconnection.com/blog/2010/06/24/...

A man said he took Ciprofloxacin 500mg twice a day for 6 weeks and he was cured and gained back all the weight he had lost. A laboratory said that ciprofloxacin could be used for giardia
http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11566552

I am trying hard to help people on here because I know how awful this giardia is and how little help you get, so I hope you do not mind me passing on what I have learnt and found to you.

I have managed to now feel much better (thank God) but I have to get rid of this malabsorption from giardia, I think that I have to kill off the giardia to get that to go as they line the whole of your intestine and this causes like a shield that nothing penetrates it seems causing the trotts, food goes straight through no goodness to you, hence malabsorption and dehydration. Obviously it only does this if you have a week immune system, so build up your immune system to fight back.
If I can not get rid of these critters with Allicinmax and Vitamins and diet and building up my immune system, then I will have to take the ciprofloxacin because of the weight loss I have but as I say I do feel much better and I am now eating and feeling as if I want to eat.

I found this study that says the combination of these 2 herbs give up to 98% success recovery from giardia suckers:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/7898121

I found Peper longum but I couldn't find where to buy the second herb.

Hi Joanne,

I think the problem with giardia is the reinfection.

Did you try the two herbs I mentionned before ( Peper longum and Palasha beeja)?

I had gardia for 6 months when i was 19 years old. Finaly the doctor diagnosed it and gave me some kind of antibiotic(i don't remember because it was so long ago but i remember mentaly being in a terrible state when i took it). All the horrible giardia symptoms went after taking the drug but the only one i have remaining all these years later is diorreah. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to cure it? any natural remedy such as a probiotic or something. Has anyone else been left with this remaining symptom after giardia invaded their gut?

Hi Jean

I buy the Allicinmax in Boots Chemist England. If you type in the search on your computer, Allicin capsules it should come up with them maybe not allicinmax but allicin something else, I know they have them in America 200mg, not sure about Canada but you can try. I am taking 3 a day 180mg.
I am not taking these drugs as they have very bad side effects, so I am taking herbal things, it may take longer this way.
I figure that you should build up your immune system after all that's how giadia gets you with a low immune system. Drink plenty because that helps clear bacteria caused by the parasites. A good quality 450 billion probiotic or more. Get your diet right no sweet or diary products. I will email you.

I just started this today, but after doing a lot of research on the internet, I found this and it contains everything that has come up on the internet in terms of alternative things that can help. It's called PARAGONE, it's ingredients have all the different things that I have come across in my research. Cloves, Wormwood, Garlic, Black Walnut,, and Quassia, and much much more. I'm not sure how it's going to work, but the reviews on their website, which is about 10 different reviews seem hopeful. I'll do a follow up with the results. Here is the link to the makers of this product. I was able to just walk into a Vitamin Shoppe and pick up two of these, one for me and my wife. Good Luck to all.
