#1.Would canberry juice be good to drink?
#2.What yogurt maker is good for the $$? I just did lactose free milk ( just a sip) so far so good would I be able to make Yogurt with lactose free milk?
My DD is allergic to all animal milk ( other than mine ) protien even in yogurt. I'll have to stick to soy for her till she gets older right? She just stops listening and is restless ( when she was and infant she used to vomit if I ate it), otherwise she is normal without it : .
the probiotic you listed is more than half cheaper than the one I take. here is what I take ( 3x day) and I'm not getting better infact worse :
I think CLO is enough you don't need extra salmon oil. Dosage: http://www.westonaprice.org/basicnut...fications.html
GSE is not really safe during pregnancy. The only yeast killer thing you can do is garlic.
I use a Salton yogurt maker. Amazon has them and also bedbathandbeyond.com for about 15 bucks plus shipping. Makes a quart. You can try raw milk yogurt to see if your D tolerates that better. Her problem with milk protein could be due to pasteurization. If not, you can make coconut milk yogurt, too.
I second the recommendation for Culturelle. There is a ton of research on it's benefits during pregnancy. It helps prevent allergies/dermatitis later for infants. It's about 17 bucks in Walmart, and about 21 in CVS and HFS-s. Look for the falt box with no inulin.
Please don't give her soy :
cranberry juice can be drunk for short periods to prevent/cure UTIs. Otherwise, it's still high in sugar for candida.
I'm another yeasty mama who gave birth to 2 yeasty babies and had no idea until recently. Now I'm trying to heal all of us...
At least you can give your unborn baby the best nutrition.
Every day: bone broths, two eggs, CLO, acerola/amla for vitamin C, liver if you don't gag , coconut oil, probiotics, butter butter butter, no vegetable oils or soy. Meat, veggies, fruits. Try to see if you can go witout grains, if not, try only soaked/fermented oatmeal, buckwheat or quinoa. Quinoa is helpful for lactating women. Tnese are better than prenatals.
Congrats on your pregnancy!
