Ds's recent Stool test from Genova shows he's got a yeast issue and some bacterial overgrowth. I know to cut out sugar (we already eat very low sugar/sweeteners), possibly fruits, carbs (already no gluten), and he's already no dairy. And that I have to get him on some good probiotics. I've also read that either oil of oregano or grapefruit seed oil is good to take. I can't remember exactly which one right now. But other than that I'm drawing a blank.

Anything else I'm missing?

Which probiotics (dairy,gluten, soy, egg free) do you all recommend? I read in last month's Living Without magazine that I should get several different brands and rotate them. I was thinking the Klaire Labs one, any others recommended?

His tests showed that he was completely devoid of Lactobacillus strains, but his levels for Bifido were good.

Have any of you had any good results with those yeast fighting "kits" from the health food store, or are they just a waste of money?

Oh, and I don't even have a clue where to start as far as the bacterial overgrowth is concerned, Please educate me!!!

I would check out the CSS thread around here somewhere. It's got an enormous (read: overwhelming) amount of information about dealing with yeast.

Start here with the CSS thread: http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=941070 It will convince you to read the "Healing the Gut" thread, here: http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=434071

Basically, you need to add Saccyaromyces Boulardii, Bifidum Bacteria and Lactobacillus. Also, coconut oil, cod liver oil, bone broths, magnesium, Vit C, B-vitamins.

How old is your son? If he is older than two years, I'd give him a small amount 1-2oz of GT Dave's kombucha daily. http://gtskombucha.com/

Raw, unheated, unfiltered, local honey, IF older than one year old. It has some bifidum. But, the ladies here can recommend dairy free probiotic in a bottle. Most bifidum comes in a bottle, other than breast milk, which is rich in bifidum.

And coconut water kefir and coconut yogurt. Easy to make at home.
The Cocobiotics drink is another easy way to get the necessary probiotics. https://shop.bodyecology.com/prodinfo.asp?number=BE301

What do you do if you can't do dairy, soy or coconut?

If you can do nuts, you can do nut milk and nut yogurt. I just made some almond milk yogurt yesterday.

Also, you can make water kefir.

Water kefir, that's right! I need to find dogmom.
DS2 reacts to nuts through bm too.

Bifidum is in some honey and in breastmilk. Otherwise, I have heard there isn't another natural source. The "source" for our human gut is breastmilk. Proper ph and other microbial balance allows it to reproduce. Honey has bifidum factors which enhance its growth.

Water kefir, as far as I know, does not have S. boulardii. Here is an old thread about the benefits of water kefir: http://www.mothering.com/discussions...d.php?t=518788

GT Dave's Kombucha has S. boulardii. I don't know if all, homebrewed kombucha has S. boulardii, though.

Lactobacillis is in all yogurt starters, I believe. It is in water kefir also.
