This book reminds me of a physician in New York who claims that ALL
Inflammatory bowel disease is due to cryptic Giardia infection.  His
theories were published in the well-known peer-reviewed journal, the New
York Times.   Furthermore, he treats his patients with artemisinin. 
Since this is an herbal product it can escape FDA regulation.  
Artemisinin, by the way, has absolutely no activity against Giardia....
