I ordered it from the UK because I didn't want what's available in the US. I got a powder and mixed the suspension myself. When I researched it this sounded like the best option.

I'm now wondering about yeast b/c me & my kids have been unable to heal. What do you think? Here are my kid's symptoms:
DD - 4.5 yrs
Redness on her labia
periods of frequent urination
red cheeks (all the time it seems)
Tons of air in her digestive system (distended tummy)
Lots of gas
Very loose stools (usually has stomach pain before pooping)
Very emotionally volatile
Vacilates between irritability & euphoria
She is already gluten & dairy free. I suspect some other allergens or sensitivities. She is supposed to have ALCAT testing done when I can get her to agree to the blood draw.
DS - 1 yr
Mucousy green poops
Redness around the anus
Really bad sleep
Constantly growling stomach
I have been on an elimination diet for about 9 months now and done gut healing for both of us. He's improved some but not nearly enough. We're slowly introducing solids.
If I decide to treat us, what would be best as I'm still breastfeeding DS and I can't take anything that will upset his system. But at this point, I feel I have nothing to lose. I've been to 2 naturopaths & neither have helped.
I've been out of this discussion for awhile but...
(bolding mine) Would you mind sharing where exactly? I've always wondered about online pharmacies etc. I am sure so many of them are fine but just have no way of knowing which ones. I'd consider that very valuable information! TIA
I read the post about the "problem" with Threelac introducing a bad bacteria. I was wondering if you'd read that information and what you thought about it? Also, on the enzymestuff website she recommends an enzyme taken along with a yeast killer. I was wondering what your thoughts on that are? Finally, is OoO ok for a 1 yr old?
ETA: Will babe experience die off through me & him? Sort of a double whammy?
Can you quote the post about threelac and the "bad bacteria?" From what I know about it it's not a bad bacteria, it's just not normally found in the human gut so it won't colonize. Essentially once you stop taking it it's gone and you need to follow up with some other strains. Very effective stuff though. I'm wondering if I missed something....
|The problem bacteria seems to be enterococcus faecalis and it is enough of a concern that the Australian Department of Health and Aging has labeled it a serious health hazard in Australia.
Basically the findings said this: Members of the meeting noted that a consultant (Natren) noted that this bacteria was not of low risk, due to its implication in transfer of antibiotic resistance in a hospital context. "Natren said that bacillus coagulans or lactobacillis sporogenes, bacillus laterosporus, enterococcus faecalis, and enterococcus faecium should not be permitted in therapeutic goods on safety grounds. Natren claims that E faecium and E faecalis are able to aquire antibiotic resistance and is a common opportunitistic pathogen in U.S. hospitals."
Natren was asked to provide scientific evidence to prove what they said but it appears they never did. The Australian government has issued health warnings concerning enterococcus faecalis, and enterococcus faecium. Since that meeting in 1998 the Australian Department of Health and Aging has approved new drugs in 2005 to combat infections caused by enterococcus faecalis. The Canadian government has listed enterococcus faecalis as a health hazard and infectious agent. They claim enterococcus faecalis is responsible for 9% of bacteremia infections, 16% of urinary tact infections, and 5 to 15% of bacterial endocarditis infections.
