How do you know when LGS is fixed?

I have been on a strict program of wellness for quite awhile now and have been feeling better and better. However, apparently I still have the Giardia parasite. Dr. Stoll, you indicate that one should heal the leaky gut before doing any prescription meds for parasites...so my question is how do you know when the leaky gut is healed? My doc (naturopath) recommmended Metronidazole followed by Itraconazole..I am very resistant to using any prescriptions drugs , but have taken herbs for awhile now and it is not killing it. I want to heal the LGS first, but how do you know when a leaky gut is healed?

Hi, Michelle.

I answered this exact question within the past month so it has not been archived.

Once you get to the point when most of your symptoms are gone it is time to conventionally attack the giardia. It will be very unhappy already.

Hope this helps.

Thanks...so by conventional methods, do you mean prescription meds? They presribed metronidazole for a week followed by itraconazole for a week. I haven't taken a prescription drug in a long time so I am nervous about how my body will react. Also, I am not symptom-free completely...mostly, but not completely....
Is there a test for LGS?

an easy, painless method to get rid of Giardia, salmonella and shigella, is using Lugol's iodine, a preparation (potassium iodide + metallic iodine) that can be made by any pharmacist.
take 10 drops 3X day for a week.
it will be vanquished, along with many other parasites.
taking turmeric capsules, 3X every meal, will help the process, along with black walnut tincture, 1 tsp every meal.
avoid it if you are allergic to iodine.

Yes, Michelle.

There are several tests for intestinal permeability at GSDL.

I DO mean prescription drugs. When it is time, they will be a lot more effective than how they are usually prescribed: in the beginning when LGS is still rampant.

Hope this helps.

Thanks, Doc Ricky.

Can you get Lugol's without a prescription anywhere? If one can get around the prescription thing by having the pharmacist formulate it, do you knopw the exact proportions of the exact things? I never learned that since I just prescribed the Lugol's.

I appreciate the contribution you have been to this BB. You add a dimension that I never could.

Namaste`

Walt
