Inadequate testing ? (bacteria giardia silver)
Inadequate testing ?
"Behind every cloud is a silver lining", is a cliche that hopefully we
may use to uncover a flaw in disease testing that is creating a great
deal of medical problems in Canada, and perhaps the world.
A patient commented to his doctor that the antibiotics, (an old wide
spectrum antibiotic at that) given to him for his upper respiratory
infection, was clearing up his intestinal problems. The old country
doctor when given the symptoms commented that the patient had an
intestinal infection, probably giardia.
The patient then told the doctor that he had been tested for
'giardia', where upon the doctor told him that one test is not
sufficient to rule out giardia, a very common infection in North
America. He said 4-5 negative tests are sometimes necessary.
Most interestings was the fact that a 'disease specialist' had used
the one test to label the patient with an incurable disease some 15
years earlier. The disease, an intestinal disorder is named I.B.S.,
and is similar to a variety of 'diseases' like I. B. D., and Crohns'.
So the question that must be posed is how many people in this country
are suffering intestinal disorders, labeled diseases, because of
faulty testing, inadequate tests, and insufficient tests, and how many
people develop complications, what we call diseases like Cancer and
M.S., due to these common bacteria that are left undiagnosed and
Old country medicine would sometimes treat people for 'suspected
infections' without having to rely on specifically identifying the
cause, when the actual cause is difficult to label, from a
