caedmyn-he recommended the B.infatis blend for dd and myself, as well as the capsules for me to alternate. I guess it must be sticking my finger in the jar that isn't good, because he said I could either give it to her in water or put it on my boob
So if it's just the finger problem, I would guess he would have a problem with the boob too...kwim?
Soooo.....I have LOTS of questions as I've been doing a ton of reading lately. If I get too annoying just let me know
-After looking at the custom probiotics, I came across this on the pecanbread.com website:
|Elaine wote:"I would only go for 3 billion a day to start with - divide the doze: am. and pm." [This means 1.5 billion dose to be given twice a day].
Start slowly with the acidophilus. You don't want more than 3 billion divided over a day when you first start. As your child gets used to this amount of probiotic, you may gradually increase it up to 9 billion cfu per day.
So that would be pretty much impossible with the custom probiotics, right? I'm already taking about 9 billion cfu per day (probably more actually). I'm thinking about getting into the SCD, as my diet now is probably not all that good for me because of how restricted it is.
If the stool sample I sent to the labs on Monday comes back saying I have a bacteria problem that is causing my leaky gut, will the SCD be good for me?
I've read conflicting things on MDC about eating your allergens while tryign to heal the gut. Some say that it's okay because it's not the allergens that are causing the leaky gut, and as long as the gut is healing, the allergies will go away. But eating them doesn't hinder the process? You see, some of my allergens and the ones dd reacts to are on the SCD.
So here is my plan as of yet. Could you tell me if this is good or not?:
-get IgG testing done to see what my allergens are (had IgE testing done 9 months ago, so I think it's time to see what's up now)
-get a mineral supplement
-Custom Probiotics for me and dd
-get nutrient elemental test done at Metametric Labs as well as an amino acid profile
Does that sound like a good start?
I hate to start taking supplement after supplement until I'm consuming like 40+ pills a day. I'd rather get my nutrients through my diet, but my diet would have to be slightly more expanded to do that
So right now I take about 8 different supplements.
What books would you recommend I get? Breaking the vicious cycle? what else?
Okay, enough for now. My head feels like it's going to EXPLODE from all this reading...
