A Natural Cure for Giardia Infection That Works a Treat!


What natural cure or treatment is there for giardia infection? I've recently been infected with this and I'm incredibly sick. Please help!


Giardia is a nasty little parasite that colonizes and breeds in the small intestine. You get it by coming into contact with infected people or touching infected areas. You can also contract this pathogen from eating or drinking contaminated food or water, which is the most common way. Animals are also prone to infection from this parasite.

Common symptoms of giardia include...

-diarrhea or greasy stools
-loss of appetite
-bloating and abdominal cramps
-excessive gas
-abdominal pain
-weight loss

Fortunately, killing this unwanted pathogen is relatively easy. Here's the two things you need to do...

Natural Cure for Giardia Infection #1... Take Colloidal Silver:

Colloidal silver has been proven in studies to eradicate over 650 different pathogens, including giardia. It inhabits the enzyme the parasite needs for oxygen metabolism, effectively suffocating it. If the particles are small enough, the colloidal silver will also penetrate the organism and attach itself to the genetic material contained within the pathogen. This stops the parasite from being able to replicate. So by taking colloidal silver, the infection is quickly contained and quarantined.

The most important part about taking colloidal silver is you must make sure the brand you buy contains silver particles of 6 nanometers or less. Any higher and they wont be able to penetrate the giardia parasite. And it must be "true" colloidal silver not ionic colloidal silver (there's a big difference). Ionic colloidal silver wont work anywhere near as well. MesoSilver Colloidal Silver is by far the strongest and best on the market and not
only fits the criteria of 6 nanometers or less, but actually goes way beyond this (one nanometer particles). This is the only brand you should use in our opinion. You can check it out here... MesoSilver - Purest Colloidal Silver.

For dosages, take one teaspoon of the Meso colloidal silver mixed in a full glass of filtered water 4-6 times a day for a period of 6-8 weeks.

Natural Remedy for Giardia Infection #2... Olive Leaf Extract (OLE):

Olive leaf extract works in similar fashion to colloidal silver. It also surrounds the pathogen, creating a type of force field, if you like, so it can't continue to grow and breed. The parasite is then left to starve and die.

There are plenty of olive leaf extract supplements on the market, however, most are rubbish. You must go with the "super strength" OLE's to have any hope of destroying this parasite. This is the only one we recommend to our clients... Olivus OLE. It's one of the strongest available in the world and is extremely powerful. Take one capsule per day for the first week then increase to two capsules after this. Continue with the olive leaf extract for a period of 6-8 weeks.

Note: Colloidal silver and olive leaf extract can cause a detoxing phenomenon known as herxheimers reaction for the first few days. This is actually a good thing though so don't be scared off by it. You can read more about it here, the signs to look out for, and what to do if it happens to you... Herxheimer Reaction - Feeling worse before feeling better.

Best of luck!

Giardia Remedy
by: Anonymous

I had giardia and was also very sick. Couldn't take my prescribed medication - it was doing a job on me and making things worse. I checked out a place called Farmacist and they gave me something called Jackass bitters. It really did the job. In 2 weeks I was completely well. It's great stuff! Hope you can find it.

Jackass bitters is a very powerful herb that comes from the Belize rainforests. Not many people know about it but it's an extremely potent viral and parasitic killer, which would explain why it works well on the giardia infection. Here's what it looks like for anyone who's interested in trying it... Jackass Bitters aka Zeb-a-pique.

Thanks for sharing your tip anonymous!

For children?
by: Commended mommy

Are any or all of these natural solutions child friendly? I think my family has this parasite and I have two toddlers. Thanks for your input!

Apr 07, 2017
by: Troy

Both colloidal silver and olive leaf extract are safe for children. You can buy olive leaf extract supplements specifically formulated for kids (such as these ones). With the colloidal silver, the recommended dose for children is between 1/4 to 1/2 a teaspoon daily.

Hope this helps.

All the best. :)

Cat and giardia
by: Vicki

Will Nano silver work (Activz Silver Sol).
My cat may have giardia. Are the other treatments you recommend safe for use in cats?

Apr 24, 2017
by: Troy

Hi Vicki. We recommend either silver hydrosol (Sovereign silver) or pure colloidal silver (Dr Mercola's). These are much safer forms of colloidal silver and can be used to treat animals. The olive leaf extract can also be given to cats and dogs, however, it doesn't taste the best so I'm not sure how you could get it into your feline friend. The colloidal silver can easily be added to their water without them even tasting it. 1-2 teaspoons is all you need. :)

Thank you so much for this! Going to give it a try, but unfortunately Amazon doesn't ship Mesosilver to Canada. I'm looking at this product, in case you have any insight?

Purchase Sovereign Silver Colloidal Silver instead Emily. This is pure high grade CS and works extremely well. You can find it on Amazon or Ebay in Canada. :)

Time frame for dogs?
by: Cindy

For dogs with possible recurring giardia infection, what length of time should I put the colloidal silver in their water bowl for? And then do I give it a break for a certain length of time and then do it again for the cysts? Your input is greatly appreciated for our dogs seemingly endless diarrhea.

Hi Cindy. This article gives you a good outline on what and how much colloidal silver to give to your dog... Natural Antibiotic For Dogs And Cats. One olive leaf extract capsule hidden in their food each day can also work wonders for getting rid of any internal parasites, including worms and giardia. There is no set time frame as to how long your pet can have these as both are perfectly safe.

Hope this helps.

All the best!

Is oregano oil safe for pets?
by: Peta

Hi. I recently read that oregano oil can get rid of giardia in humans, is it also effective and safe for cats and dogs?

Mar 07, 2018

by: Troy

Oregano oil is safe for dogs (must be diluted), and even cats at a much lower dosage (usually around one drop in their water). Here's a couple of articles about it...

Hope this helps.

All the best to you Peta!

Giardia Treatment for Kids
by: Kyle

Hi there. Both our kids (3yrs & 1yr old) have had persistent foul diarrhea for 2 weeks with periodic vomiting. However, no flu symptoms. Stool samples that we gave the doctor have come back negative, but I’ve heard Giardia is very hard to find and they still may have it. We are against using antibiotics at their age which would wipe out the gut flora. We purchased both products you recommended (Colloidal Silver and Olive Leaf Extract for Kids). Should we use both products? Or is one more effective than the other? What are the dosages for kids?

May 23, 2018
Reply to Kyle
by: Troy

A good rule of thumb with the colloidal silver for kids is 1/4 teaspoon for every 10 pounds of body weight. For a one year old, use a colloidal silver spray and spray it into their mouth at regular intervals (it's tasteless). With the olive leaf extract, 5 ml's once a day for kids aged between 2 and 6 years old is the standard dose. for a one year old, only around 2 ml's a day. Check the bottle(s) of the products you've bought as well. They should list the dosages.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you Kyle! :)

Does slippery elm powder help for giardia? I also have some collidal silver (not the brand you recommended). I'm tired of buying stuff. I have a cupboard full of items, and nothing is working - even after a round of antibiotics!

Oct 07, 2020
by: Troy

Slippery Elm helps to rid the parasite from the digestive system, so yes, it can be helpful. If the supplements you have are cheaper varieties and not high quality then this will definitely affect their effectiveness. Always go with the highest quality you can afford.

Hope this helps.

Good luck and all the best to you! 😊

Argentyn 23
by: Heather

Should the olive leaf be taken at the same time as the silver? Would Argentyn 23 bio active silver hydro sol 23ppm be as effective as Sovereign Silver?

Jul 15, 2021
Reply to Heather
by: Troy

I would recommend taking the OLE and colloidal silver at different times. You will get much more benefit from them doing it this way. Even if you take them 20-30 minutes apart, this will still suffice. The Argentyn Colloidal Silver is an excellent product so yes, taking it in place of the Sovereign Silver is perfectly fine.

Good luck and all the best to you Heather! :)

How do I take these meds?
by: Anonymous

How should I take the olive leaf? Before meals within 30 min or right just after? (On my pills it says with meal or water).
Also, the colloidal silver, should I take it 2 hours after the olive leaf?
Please let me know a detail scheme of how these meds should be taken for proper healing.
Thank you!

Olive leaf brand
by: Anonymous

In my country I don't have the product that you wrote on your site. I have this one. Is this a good one?... OLIVE LEAF NATURE'S WAY (the purple bottle) with Olive extract (leaf) standardized 20% oleuropein (50mg)-250 mg and olive (leaf)-180 mg - 1 or 2 capsules a day with water or food.

Thank you!

Sep 07, 2021
by: Troy

First off, the Mesosilver colloidal silver is an excellent brand, along with Natures Way OLE, so you definitely have no problems there. Now, when to take them? Both are best taken on an empty stomach just before eating. Around 10-15 minutes before is perfect. "Eating" can just be having a piece of fruit, it doesn't necessarily mean a full meal. Before bed is another excellent time. Of course, you don't need to then eat something. Having one dose before sleep is good as the CS and OLE go to work while you're sleeping. Bottom line... there are no set times as such. Just try and break up the amounts/dosages throughout the day rather than taking them all in one hit.

Hope this helps.

All the best to you! 😊

Just Ingredients Colloidal Silver?
by: Anonymous

I have ordered Just ingredients colloidal silver. Do you think it’ll work?

Apr 06, 2023
by: Troy

Just Ingredients is a quality supplier, however, I think they're colloidal silver is a spray? You want the liquid taken orally. Sovereign Silver brand is still the best overall in my opinion. 😊
