Giardia lamblia 
 

Giardia is a microscopic parasite that can be found in water. Giardia causes an intestinal illness called giardiasis. Giardia produces cysts that are very resistant to harsh environmental conditions. When
ingested they germinate, reproduce, and cause illness.

Giardiasis, Giardial Enteritis

Characteristics A protozoan infection of the small intestine, with nausea, gas, abdominal pain, acute malodorous diarrhea, malabsorption, and damage to mucosal membranes; may be asymptomatic.

Pathogen Giardia lamblia a flagellate protozoan; trophozoites attach to mucosal membranes; cysts and sometimes trophozoites are expelled in feces.

Reservoir Humans; possibly beaver; other wild and domestic animals.

Transmission Fecal-oral route; ingestion of cysts in fecal-contaminated cold water or foods; person to person by soiled hands to mouth.

Incubation period 5- 25 days or longer.

Control Proper filtration of public water supplies (chlorine does not destroy cysts); sanitary disposal of feces; boil all emergency water supplies.

    The presence of any kind of parasites leads to an enormous weakening of the immune system. Various parasites, such as the widespread protozoa Giardia lamblia, reduce the secretion of irnmunoglobulin A and thereby depress the smooth functioning of our immune defense. At the same time, the presence of parasites continuously activates the immune response. This constant "pulling on both ends" can, over time, exhaust our defense system, which is so essential to life.
    In addition to the above mentioned lack of awareness on the part of most doctors regarding the extent of parasitic infections, infestation is difficult to diagnose. Random stool examination, the standard method used by most doctors has
proved to be insufficient and unreliable. On the basis of false negative results, most doctors rule out parasites as the fundamental cause of a disease. Furthermore, the symptoms of an infestation do not always manifest themselves immediately after infection. In many cases, they only appear after days or months have passed. If a parasitic infection is diagnosed despite these difficulties and treated with medication, new problems may occur because many of the chemicals used in the treatment produce strong side effects.
    Grapefruit seed extract is helpful here as well. Not only is it without side effects in contrast to chemical verrnifuges, but also extremely effective. A large number of parasitic infections have been successfully treated with the extract. Its broad range of efficacy can also "get us out of the fix" in case of a false diagnosis.

Instructions for Internal Use: For internal treatment, we usually take 3 to 10 drops of grapefruit seed extract 2 to 3 times daily in a full glass of water or a corresponding number of capsules or tablets until the symptoms have disappeared. (The packages usually contain information on how many drops correspond to a capsule or tablet.) The drops are dissolved in glycerine and should be thoroughly mixed with the water. If the taste is too bitter, you can alternatively take the extract mixed in a glass of fruit juice.
Alternatively add to a container 5 drops P/Ltr and leave for 30 - 60 mins. Can be used in rainwater tanks at the above (800 ppm) concentrate.
