Don't suffer baby sickness.
You must weigh up whether the taxing situation of a sick baby is better than the treatment options. I decided to clear my babe no matter what it took because I was going literally crazy and he was scratching and allergic to pretty much everything.
I had to do something because we were all coming unglued.
I can't see HOW on earth clearing a mama's gut is going to get that yeast off her baby's gut wall. If anyone has science articles to prove my thought on that wrong, then I'd really love to see it. Until then, I honestly can't believe that doing anything for mama does jack sh!t for babe in the yeast wars. I haven't seen it in practice, and I didn't see it in DS.
I treated the baby. Directly. I gave him nystatin drops, even though they contain so much crap it made me ill to read. But I had to help him get rid of that candida in his gut or he would continue to scream in gut pain, be unable to sleep, get more allergies and maybe even autism or some other horrible mental issue that we battle on for years. I made a decision to use the hard bullet on him and I don't regret it.
I am still treating us both, I'm on Threelac again (started yesterday) and I will be using nystatin on him now and again (babies clear very fast). I think nystatin is safer than herbs as herbs are absorbed. Ironic, but there it is. I used babybiotics as very young babies have different flora strains until they mature. But probiotics during the clearing to re-flora-date (heh, I do enjoy myself).
stands for Nambudripad's Allergy Elimination Techniques. In a nutshell, it uses the meridians of the body used in acupuncture to realign the body while exposed to an allergen so the body no longer reacts to that substance as though it is a threat. As far as I know, it does not treat the gut issue that is at the base of allergies, it only treats the reaction to whatever substance the body is reacting negatively to.
So if you're allergic to eggs, for example, 25 hours after a NAET treatment you can eat an egg - but you may then get an allergy to something else cos the gut is still leaky. So the cause isn't treated, as far as I can tell. A strong advocate of NAET may disagree with me, but all the descriptions I have heard and read of it don't touch on "healing the gut", it just talks of re-educating the body on one particular substance at a time.
We go to an updated version that treats 7 allergies at a time using frequency generators as well as the traditional NAET. Before the treatment, if I ate citrus (which is in Threelac!), DS broke out all over his cheeks and legs. If I ate nuts, same thing. And forget about dairy and gluten, his body went crazy over those. We got him tested with their German machines for over 250 substances and he returned a high rate of allergy against 21 substances including his own insulin, blood and water! Three days after the first treatment I was eating lemons and nuts and he was continuing to heal instead of breaking out. It was brilliant watching his skin each morning have less and less crap all over it, yet I was eating more than ever. He takes a Himalayan salt grain each day which contains, much like homeopathy, the frequency he needs for healing.
The only thing I struggled with was that they needed a drop of his blood. I almost declined the whole treatment cos I was panicking about it. I denied all tests when he was born, including weighing him and the heel prick test as I don't believe in traumatising newborns in such a manner. But he didn't even seem to notice and it was worth it.
DS has/had two issues. Eczema and seborrheic dermatitis on his scalp and forehead. This is the reason I know that the NAET does not treat the gut, because his dermatitis didn't clear. Or at least, hadn't at the time his eczema did. I cleared that with antidandruff shampoo with an antifungal in it. If his gut were clear, his scalp would clear (too complex to explain in a post why this is so). So I use his scalp as my yeast marker. When he gets itchy up there, he needs a yeast clearing. NAET did not help that.
