Question UniKey Fat Flush and Colon Cleanse-Parasite removal

So this is kinda wierd, but I have had GI issues for a long time and been through about every test imaginable, ultrasound, colonoscopies, food sensitivities, etc. I am wondering if I might have chronic giardia or another parasite. I found info on the Uni Key products (probably because of magazines it has been in recently) But I was wondering if anyone has had parasites, what your story is, or if anyone has used the UniKey cleanse and parasite removal, etc. Just wanting some info from someone who has been there

Well first of all, if you have a parasite, your doctor can test for it. It is a fairly long treatment as I've talked to people that have had parasites diagnosed, specifically giardia.

Unfortunately products like this cleanse make a lot of claims but none of what they say is true. They basically will clean your wallet

Now if you have food allergy, have you been tested for food allergies? What have the doctors told you?

I had a blood test to test for food 'sensitivities', since my airway is not affected, it isn't a true allergy. I have eliminated all the food I am sensitive to for about 10 months now and still have the same symptoms. My doctor also tested me for candida, celiac, crohns, gall bladder trouble. I was looking online about giardia and parasites and apparently it can take multiple stool and or blood tests to detect? Thank you for your input, and anything else you have to tell me is very welcome, I am totally desperate for answers! Thank you!

This site is very good and says 3 tests can detect it so if you have the symptoms, definitely talk to your doc
http://www.giardiasis.org

Symptoms:
The major symptom of acute giardiasis, mainly seen in travelers, is protracted diarrhea. The incubation period for infection is generally 9-15 days. The acute stage usually begins with a feeling of intestinal uneasiness followed by nausea and anorexia.1 Low grade fever and chills may occur. These symptoms are followed by watery, foul-smelling, explosive diarrhea, abdominal pain, passage of foul gas and belching. This stage lasts for 3-4 days, often resembling other causes of travelers' diarrhea, so giardiasis may go undiagnosed. If left untreated, symptoms may persist for months. Malabsorption due to chronic Giardia infection has also been reported.

Other common symptoms of giardiasis include abdominal pain, flatulence, bloating, vomiting and weight loss.2 Symptoms vary from person to person, often depending on the inoculum size, duration of infection, and individual host and parasite factors.1 The diarrhea can be mild and produce semi-solid stools, or it can be intense and debilitating.

Alright, just got back from the doc, the colonoscopy results said that I have some inflamation...really?! Who woulda thought? (sarcasm) I am going to do some stool tests to see if I have giardia or other parasites and if there are too many microbes or bacteria in my gut. So at least we are on the right track. Thanks for the info again
