Also, you need more "active live culture" probiotics.
Here is an informative article "Selection Criteria for Probiotics": http://findarticles.com/p/articles/m...g=artBody;col1
This link discusses specific brands of different probiotics: http://www.usprobiotics.org/products.asp
Also, it is important to rotate probiotics otherwise "probiotic resistance" could develop, I've read. Don't use single strain probiotics exclusively; and DO rotate them every 4-7 days. The Probiotic Solution
champions the "pulsing and rotating probiotics". http://findarticles.com/p/articles/m...52/ai_n6112818
Increasing nutrients. So, increasing bone broths, coconut oil, cod liver oil and whole food probiotics, especially Bifidus bacterium and Lactobacillus acidophilus and Saccharomyces boulardii. The bifidus is usually a powder or capsule, get capsules. Acidophilus is in yogurt, look for "Active Live Cultures".
Most packaged probiotics are denatured in transportation, and don't survive the acidity of the stomach to make it to the gut. Whole food which is cultured and fermented have the proper acidity to survive the stomach and recolonize the gut.
Goat's milk yogurt is more easily digested due to less allergenic proteins and because it is cultured, even for folks intolerant of some caseins
. It has prebiotics and enzymes which help too. S. boulardii is available in significant amounts in store bought raw, organic kombucha, maybe a few yogurts. S. boulardii displaces candida yeast. Get some and drink it daily!
You can do water kefir. It has 30+ beneficial microbials for recolonizing the gut. You need to take these multiple times a day, as probiotics don't "stick" in the gut, like candida. Probiotics have to replaced repeatedly. S. boulardii stays longer. Here is a reliable source of kefir grains: http://www.culturesforhealth.com/zen/
1 Tbls a day of the kefir will help even. But, much more is preferable. Personally, I'd try fermented raw goat's milk kefir.
I would consider weaning, if you still have high eosinophils in a month, or two. The No Cry Sleep Solution
helps. You can relactate.
Adoptive mamas can lactate. Weaning doesn't have to be traumatic.
I'm curious about any other heavy metal toxicity? Amalgam, lead, aluminum, arsenic, radon, copper, etc.
So adding magnesium, *cultured* raw goat dairy, fermented foods, kefir, kombucha, vit C, soaked grains, avoiding gluten, add zinc, enzymes, add Vit A and D supplementation. I assume you've been reading the "Healing The Gut" cheat sheet? http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=434071
We are amazed at how classical homeopathy has helped ds and dh's immune systems. I was a critical care nurse for 17 years. Medical folks only see what they know. I would always take another adult as an advocate with you to every doctor's appointment. Write down notes. Ask for written documentation of any abnormal labs, and any (potential) diagnosis. EXPECT to have everything explained to your COMPLETE satisfaction. The doctors have a duty to provide Informed Consent.
That means explained until you understand their *opinion* of the pros and cons of EVERY alternative. I'd always get second or third opinions from non-affiliated providers, before initiating anything invasive. And, I'd go the alternative route aggressively and concurrently.
Totally and strongly recommend seeing a professional classical homeopathic. STRONGLY.
Consider saliva testing for hormones: cortisol, thyroid, progesterone, estrogen, etc. The blood levels could be different than *bio-available* levels. http://www.mothering.com/discussions...ghlight=saliva
The levels are interconnected and related to thyroid and nutrition and cortisol and immune response. This is newer theory and not supported by the pharmaceutical companies, so it may be difficult to find an informed provider. A DAN! doctor might be a resource.
Personally, I'd find the most progressive DAN! doctor in your area to consult, ASAP.
