I've been taking that for a while, too, so it's probably not a vitamin K deficiency.
B6 is the vitamin that's supposed to produce dream recall, right? How much does the amount of sleep I get in a stretch affect dream recall? I very rarely get 3 hours of sleep in a stretch because of DD's night wakings. I started taking a B complex vitamin a month or so ago and haven't noticed any difference in dream recall, but I'm not sure if it means I need to supplement B6 separately, or if I just won't have much dream recall until I can sleep better.

DS is 3 and has tons of allergies. When he eats allergens, he often gets constipation. He takes lots of probiotics, etc, so we're doing a lot to help his gut (starting raw milk next week).
He had a bout of bad constipation due to eating too many eggs. This was about 10 days ago. Ever since, it has hurt when he poops. His poops come out pretty big and seem pretty hard. He says it hurts some while pooping and then his bum hurts afterwards.
What can I do to help this? I've tried giving some flax oil, but it's been hard to get into him. I've kept a consistent intake of fruit, too. What else?
Thanks and sorry for the graphic post......

Yeast has very long legs that dig into your insides. When it dies off it then leaves holes. This is one of the ways you can develop leaky gut.
So, what do I need to have on hand for myself and for ds to heal up those holes while I'm killing them off. I don't want to start killing them if I don't have the means to heal up those dangerous holes!!!!!!!!
Is there any way to avoid leaky gut at all when getting rid of yeast or is it unavoidable? I really don't want ds to go through this.
Tell me what I should get. Ds is 7 months and exclusively breastfed. I also would not want to take anything that would be unsafe or damage our breastfeeding relationship.
Thanks for the advice!

Although this chiro seems very knowledgeable....I do just worry about doctors now. Can't help it. She said that I will need to take some things because yeast is so difficult to get rid of (the diet won't be enough). Is there anything that would be unsafe for breastfeeding? Should I start giving ds that bifidus stuff if I come out positive for Candida? Mostly I'm worried about him. Will he heal right along with me even if he doesn't get anything but breastmilk?
Thanks! Sorry this got long. I'll post again when we find out the results too!

Annikate - sorry for the *bad* news. Check out the yahoo candidasupport group for food ideas. The first 2 weeks were definitely the hardest as my body adjusted to all the changes, but now I dont feel the need for snacks. You eat so much fat that it really lasts for several hours. Also, decaf coffee is ok on that diet. The mediator of that group talks about coffee increasing permeability, but includes decaf on her mock shopping list, so it must be the caffiene? I dropped coffee, chocolate (daily habit!!), grains, dairy, and fruit in a day, and Ive lived to tell about it (though only for 3 wks so far )
Bifidus - why bad? I keep seeing this in posts.
