I was thinking grapefruit seed extract and then I found this: http://wolfcreekranch1.tripod.com/coccidia.html

i see that product has Olive Leaf Extract, which can do a good job with that.
i also know that coconut oil can do a pretty good job of ridding the body of bacteria and parasites. because it lubricates the intestines parasites cannot stay latched onto them, so out they go.

Maybe you meant pumpkin seeds. They are supposed to expell worms etc. Garlic should help too. A lot of people swear of Propolis.

According to veterinary experts, Coccidia is actually self-limiting and goes away on its own, unless the pet keeps re-exposing themselves. The Albon that is given by the vet is used to treat the gastro-intestinal upset that is caused by the Coccidia, it doesn't actually do anything for the parasite.
