Giardia is arguably the most commonly encountered protozoal pathogen worldwide. When ingested, Giardia can produce severe gastrointestinal symptoms (diarrhea, bloating, cramping pain and nausea), as well as debilitiating fatigue. Antibiotics are not the only treatment option, however.
In this audio-visual lecture, Dr Jason Hawrelak discusses the pathophysiology of giardiasis, discusses its lifecycle, and highlights the many natural medicines that can be used to successfully treat the condition.
Lecture length ~30 mins. Audio-visual lecture counts towards CPE.
