In brief: No

If your child is having sypmtoms from giardia and entamoeba your doctor is likely to recommend taking an oral antibiotic.
Untreated, they can progress to severe painful, bloody diarrhea. However, if your child has absolutely no symptoms you can discuss the possibility of not treating and watching closely. No natural, herbal, or cleansing remedies have been shown to work in scientifc studies.
