Treatment of giardiasis in adults and children
Jun 20, 2018
The simplest microorganisms of the flagellum species parasitizing in the intestine, gallbladder and its ducts in an adult or a child are called lamblia in medicine.Contents:
These microorganisms occur in the form of adults or cysts, but in any case, they will be infected with the following symptoms:
- alternation of constipation and diarrhea;
- pain in the right hypochondrium;
- pain in the belly region.
If infection with Giardia has occurred in very young children, then they will have a multiple stool in the form of a gruel-like mass.These symptoms can be associated with a decrease in appetite, a constant rumbling in the abdomen, a feeling of heaviness.The body can respond to the appearance in it lamblia and allergic reactions - rashes on the skin, swelling, dermatitis.
The lamblias treatment regimen consists of three stages: preparatory, therapeutic and stabilization.
Preparatory stage of treatment for lamblia
This treatment period lasts from 2 to 4 weeks, during which it is necessary to completely purify the body of toxins.These toxins were isolated by Giardia in the process of their vital activity, but no medications are prescribed to the patient, only health promotion is carried out.
- Strengthen the secretion of bile with funds from the category of "traditional medicine".
- Perform blind probing.
- Normalize the diet.
Normalization / correction of the patient's diet can not remove the lamblia from the body, but this will contribute to the formation of an environment in the body that is not suitable for growth and reproduction of parasites, and to increase immunity. This effect can be achieved by introducing into the diet the following products:
- cranberries and cranberries;
- cereals from whole grains;
- vegetable oils;
- products rich in fiber( vegetables, fruits and dried fruits);
It is necessary to exclude from the menu products that contain a lot of sugar in their composition, as it is carbohydrates that supply glucose to micro-organisms.Specially selected diet contributes to weakening lamblia, which greatly facilitates the process of removing them from the body.
Stimulation of bile secretion
This procedure is performed only with the use of folk remedies.The patient will have to take a course of taking medications, prepared on the basis of tansy, immortelle, barberry, stalk of corn, milk thistle and lily of the valley.To stimulate the output of bile, decoctions, infusions or tinctures from the medicinal plants listed above are used.Proportions and methods of preparation must be specified by the attending physician( they can be different for each individual case).
This procedure is also carried out to stimulate the release of bile, which ultimately contributes to the release of bile ducts from the pathogens in question.This manipulation( it is called tjubazh) can be done at home. Algorithm for blind probing:
- In the morning on an empty stomach is eaten a yolk of a hen's egg, you can instead drink mineral water with the content of sulfurous magnesia( the exact dosage is specified by the attending physician).Suitable "Borjomi", "Jemruk."
- The patient should lie on the bed and apply a hot water bottle or a bottle of hot water to the upper right side of the stomach.The duration of lying is 2 hours.
Blind probing should be carried out 3 times a week throughout the entire preparatory period.
Only after carrying out the preparatory phase, it is possible to use any medicines that have activity against the parasites under consideration. Most commonly used for the treatment of allopathic remedies:
These medications should be taken strictly in the dosages that are prescribed for adults and children, as they are significantly different.If you have to undergo a treatment course for a child, then he is most often prescribed Furazolidone, Tiberal or Macmirror.The course of therapy in both the adult patient and the child is 5-7 days.
If the lamblia was not cured, or a second infection occurred, then two courses of therapy will be provided for older children and adults. An exemplary scheme of treatment in this case will look like this:
- Trichopolum for 7 days( perhaps it will be enough and 5 days, but this remains at the discretion of the attending physician).
- Break 3 days.
- Furazolidone for 5 days.
- Blind probing.
Note: is often noted by doctors in the treatment of lamblias, the side effects of taking medications.These include a decrease in appetite, nausea and vomiting, an allergic reaction of the body.
The funds from the category of "folk medicine", which are made on the basis of mint, garlic, fig and pumpkin, can also contribute to the excretion of lamblias.But in any case, you need to get advice about the advisability of using traditional medicine from your doctor.
Stabilization phase of treatment
After carrying out the two above-described stages, it is necessary to "fix" the result obtained.To do this, you need to adjust the immune system and normalize digestion. The following methods can be used to achieve the desired results:
- The use of fees, which include bearberry, black poplar, birch buds - they have immunomodulatory properties;
- the use of decoctions of beet, cranberries and cranberries - these plants contribute to the normalization and stabilization of digestion processes.
Traditional medicine against lambliaWe recommend that you read:

Seeds of pumpkin
Seeds of pumpkin are not only an effective remedy for lamblia, but also very tasty, which is an important fact in the treatment of children.You need to grind 300 grams of pumpkin seeds( peeled) and add to them 50 grams of honey and the same amount of water.This portion the adult patient should eat on an empty stomach for 1 hour, then it is necessary to take any laxative.For children, one-third of the total amount of medication will be enough for a single dose.

Oats and stigmas of corn
These two plants are considered to be one of the most effective for the treatment of Giardiasis.In addition, they are easy enough and easy to prepare, and broths do not have an unpleasant taste and smell, so that their children consume without whims.

Beet and carrot juice
Attention!This folk remedy can be used to treat giardiasis only in adults!

A sick child should take ¼ cup decoction three times a day, for an adult, the indicated single dose should be doubled.Store the drug in a break between the meals you need in the refrigerator.
Note: there are many popular recipes that promise to rid the patient of Giardia.But their application should be necessarily coordinated with the attending physician - in its composition such products contain potentially dangerous medicinal plants, which can lead to serious complications.
Treatment of Giardiasis is a false process, it needs to be done only under the supervision of medical workers.Only in this case can we expect complete disposal of these parasites.
