healing the gut -- april - Page 14

post #261 of 268
I totally understand being frustrated to a constant battle and thinking about a chronic condition like leaky gut (that involved eating.)

Regarding dairy, I think some people have no problem with dairy, but many of us do. Most of the books I've read about yeast controlling diet recommend "no dairy." Yet, they don't specify what kind. I think raw or cultured dairy are extremely beneficial. I found only the SCD and Karen DeFelice in her book (a little bit) will explain that.

I do better being a vegan, but I still eat grass fed cows, fish, eggs, honey, etc. However, the most important is not eating the junk: Choose better fat, oil, meat, water, salt, etc. The only dairy I eat is the SCD home made yogurt and a very occasional goat cheese; BUT, I only take D/F probiotic in a capsul when I am detoxing

I do use various herb teas, but I only drink one kind at a time, depending on my symptom(s).

Boy, I dream of curing the leaky gut 100%. We started with a long list of food sensitivities, but it has shrunk. I have not tried any grain on the kids, yet. I function better with no grain or dairy in my diet. I think I will always be like that. I think my kids may be like that as well. I'd be happy as long as my kids stay healthy to pursue their happiness. Besides, what is healthy about eating gluten anyway. There are other super foods that will be good for us (it's just very time consuming in the kitchen though....)

Ahhh..yes the time in the kitchen. I have to say it has made me a much better cook! Interesting that you don't take probiotics except when you are detoxing...I take copious amounts. What is your theory?

I am realizing that though I eat better than most people who say they eat REALLY well i have relaxed on a few things and need to step up the anti again. It had gotten to a point for me this fall where I was so obsessed and had been for years about every thing I put in my mouth that I felt like I was starting to really go crazy and maybe my and my sons symptoms were all in my head. I backed off a bit and relaxed into a diet that would mostly be considered a yeast diet.

OH...how I crave to just feel well and for my son to be well too!!!

LeifnMe: I do eat my yogurt everyday, but I stop eating yogurt, and just take probiotic capsul when I am detoxing. Sorry to have confused you.

However, when we stopped the mucus got better. Go figure. Blah...
Out of curiousity, which probiotics were these? I'm on the lookout for other dairy free infant probiotics and I don't want to repeat the experience you had.

I stopped giving her the BabyLife and the mucous seemed to get better. But my dd has always had mucous, too, so I'm just trying to interpret varying degrees of severity. Blah is right!

I thought they were the Natren bifidus ones, but they sent me Ethical Nutrients (which is their brand too?) dairy free bifidus.

We are having no trouble iwth the Custom Probiotics brand. Although quite expensive, the kinesiologist checked them and said they were 100% beneficial for us.

Hi Ladies,

Is our may thread up?

For the dry eczema, what is everyone doing topically? I remember EPO, or what that oral? We have dry, persistently flaking skin that is scarring -- which is concerning to me b/c it makes the itching worse. I have tried mineral oil, Vaseline, etc...even olive oil didn't help. Any thoughts?

You can use EPO both topically and internally. My DD's eczema is pretty mild but lanolin works really well on it.
