'Tackling protozoal parasites: a guide to practitioners'

Posted 9 years ago by Soraya

Dr Brian McDonogh explains that parasitic infections such as Giardia lamblia or Entamoeba histolytica are far more common than we think. Last but not least on his list of recommendations for treatment are probiotics. McDonogh suggests recolonising the gut with strong probiotics which are resistant to stomach acidity and biliary salts. Saccharomyces boulardii is highlighted in particular for its use in cases of Giardiasis; and its anti-inflammatory properties in the bowel. Furthermore boulardii "prevents pathogenic yeast overgrowth and increases secretory IgA levels, thereby improving local immunity."
