Probiotic?

Recommended Posts

My dd12 was recently diagnosed with PANDAS and has candida. Took one month Augmentin which made OCD worse. Started Zithro today. Fingers crossed. Also takin Nystatin. She is taking a BioGaia probiotic for kids (she only weighs 58 lbs) but want to know if there is something better I should give her.

I don't know the BioGaia probiotic, so I can't speak as to whether or not another one would necessarily be "better." I will offer, however, that my DS was on antibiotics for nearly two years, and we had no yeast overgrowth issues by using three probiotic and "cleaning" supplements: a mixed strain probiotic by Renew Life, a sachromyces boulardi (sach B) supplement by Jarrow (same probiotic strain as in Florastor, but less expensive), and bentonite clay.

 

The mixed-strain probiotic we gave every day, as we did with the sach b. Sach b is, like candida, a yeast, but a beneficial one that helps crowd out candida; it's also impervious to antibiotics, so you can dose simultaneously if you need to without giving up too much of the probiotic to die-off. We would use the bentonite clay once per week or so to help "sweep out" the die-off in the gut.

 

Hope things go well for here on out!

Thank you so much! I just purchased the Jarrow this week, but she refuses to take it. I will keep trying. I also bought chlorella for detox but alas, she refuses that as well. Today she refused her abx for two hours but finally took it.

With the Jarrow sach b., I think you can open the capsule? Maybe you could mix it into a cup of applesauce or yogurt and she would willingly eat that? It doesn't have any taste. I would just avoid trying to hide it in something warm/hot, as high temperatures might kill off the beneficial bacteria.

 

Good luck!
