- this is the little varmint that causes so much trouble.
I don't want to scare you too much, but some people
get pretty sick when giardia latches on to the intestine
and starts doing its thing.
The giardia lifestyle is to feed on you and then reproduce,
sending potential offspring flowing out the anal canal
and into the environment. In fact, as you read this,
there are literally billions and billions of giardia
cysts in the wild, and in cities. They wait eagerly
for you to ingest them. Then you too, will become

Horror of Giardia
had giardia making a home inside my intestines,
but I've never experienced the horror part. Mine was
only uncomfortable, a bit of a pain. But some people
do have a time with it. You see, the symptoms vary
from person to person. At least the severity of the
giardia symptoms vary.
There is certainly some of the "I wish I were
dead" syndrome. Unfortunately, there is no way
to know in advance whether your body will react mildly
to giardia, or whether it will go into full scale
revolution and chaos at the introduction of the giardia
organism to your system.
It would be nice if one became immune to giardia,
but if that does occur, it takes generations of humans
to do it. For now, you're stuck. You can catch it
again, and again, and again. So after checking over
the giardia symptoms, you'll want to take a look at
water filters and other techniques for avoiding giardia.
lot of people coming to this Giardia and cryptosporidium
web site come here to see if they have the nasty thing
itself. So we'll go right to giardia symptoms.
