My 4 year old who has never apparently had any problem with dairy is now puking up small amounts of what looks like watery cottage cheese, maybe one to five times per day. He's never done this before. His tongue is also coated white. I don't know if this has anything to do with milk consumption, he does drink a good amount of cows milk. Or could it be yeast? Has anyone seen this before? We're checking with his doctor too but I want some good old fashioned mom advice too.

thanks
Lori

The white coating on the tongue sounds like thrush, which is yeast. To get rid of thrush, take 4 bayleaves in 2 cups water, simmer for 20 minutes. Let cool down and place several drops of the water on tongue several times per day. That should go away in about a day or so.

Was the child recently on antibiotics?

There are several ways to treat internal yeast. But first you must eliminate ALL sources of diary. Begin vitamin C. Get some Grapefruit seed Extract (GSE).. Follow the instructions on the bottle. Or you can go to the docs and DEMAND Nystatin. Try to avoid diflucan, it kills the yeast way too fast and causes horrible side effects. Agression, really bad smelly poops. Yeast dying is toxic.

I hope this helps. let us know.

Thanks Stacie,

He has never taken antibiotics. He is on antiseizure medication, however.

Do you think the throwup thing could be yeast as well? Or perhaps lactose intolerance? (I realize it could just be a side effect of the drugs, but I've not seen this prior to the past few weeks.)

The throwing up could be any of the above. Yeast, milk interance or the seizure meds. Seizure meds can do some wierd things.

Antoher thing I forgot to mention is to cut ALL sugar from his diet. Including fruit juice. Yeast feeds on any type of sugar. It might also be beneficial to also elimate wheat from his diet, especially if he seems to be eating a lot of bread and pasta. Yeast feeds on the carbos.

How long has your child been on seizure meds? Just curious.

He has had seizures for over two years but only been on meds. for six months. We tried a lot of things before that, all of which helped in the short term.

We have already eliminated all sugars from his diet, for the past year and a half. This helped him tremendously for a long, long time, then it wasn't enough. We still have him on this diet becuase his seizures would get worse if he had sweeteners. Same with white flour.

No vaccinations.

Hi Stacie, thanks very much for referring me to the article. If you know of any research on yeast and seizures, I'd be very interested in it. I have heard of a link with autism; I wonder if there is with seizures too. Haven't read a lot on it, but seems like a possibility. (??)

I haven't seen any particlur articles on yeast/seizures. But I will keep a look out.

I do know of several autistic children that once on the gf/cf diet their seizures went away.


I don't know if there is any correlation. Just parent observation.
