A study published in March in the prestigous World Journal of Gastroenterology found that " CONCLUSION: In this consecutive series, diagnosis of G. lamblia infection accounted for 6.5% of patients with IBS and dyspepsia."Apparently some people with IBS have giardia. However, colon cleansing is probably not the best way to effectively rid one of this or other parasites. There is a simple way to know if you have parasites, get a stool sample tested for them. It should be noted that this study found that there were no symptoms that could reliably be used to diagnose giardia infection. The only methods that were found to be effective were direct search of duodenal biopsy or stool sample.
