Hey yall so my 2 year old girl has a yeast infection that is not clearing with coconut oil and a few times i put monistat on it also ,its been 2 wks and though it looks better is still there .i can call for a nystatin prescrip also but i was trying to avoid it .
She also has thrush which the doc gave nystatin for today shes had thrush for over 4 months that just isnt clearing with nystatin either ,and now great i have more nystatin !I dont think the thrush is really bothering her much but the infection certainty is i need both cleared asap .
I have been giving her probiotics babyflora everyday in her 2% milk and coconut oil 1 teaspoon a day .I just got back from docs and told hubby she said no sweets for her ! Doc actually didnt say anything bout diet but its an attempt to get him to stop giving her treats!she eats healthy otherwise i cut out white bread ,and am limiting bananas ,and other fruits , im limiting potatoes and carrots also ,she loves bananas so much and i think they are prebiotic ?she will not drink kefir no matter what i do to it i tried just bout everything from fruit to stevia and she wont have it !
Its killing me to see her suffer and know that its from my own issues .I just want my baby healthy !I want to take any of her pain away .Im thinking theres no way she can have yeast as bad as me since she has never had an antibiotic ,never had a vaccine and her only amount of fluoride is unfortunately in the water but i make sure her dentist dosent clean with it .
I cant afford a natural path for her or myself honestly with losing my job i really cant afford anything right now its bad !!!but i really must do all i can do get her thrush and infection gone and keep them away !!! what else can i do ?June 4, 2013 at 10:35 pm #105670

I forgot to mention she is based out of new orleans but I do phone conferances with her. Obviously you dont have to use her but it might be worth a try.June 5, 2013 at 1:18 am #105677

Hey Faith, I’ve heard of people blending kefir with fruit (like berries) and making them into popsicles to get their kids to eat them. Maybe you could try that, and then she’d get to feel like she gets a treat and you get her to eat the kefir?
Sorry she’s having a hard time 🙁June 5, 2013 at 1:39 am #105679

I’m so sorry to hear about your young daughter.
You really need to stop giving her bananas as this is one of the sweetest fruits she can eat. Blueberries would be a much better choice, and I definitely agree with the suggestion made by Shay.
Just so you’re aware, adults and children alike can take at the very least one billion CFU’s per pound of weight a day. Adults with Candida infestations have been given as much as 400 billion a day. For a person weighing 150 pounds, that’s 2.66 billion CFU’s per pound.
My nephew and his wife have a 22 months old son; when he starts getting a cold, his Mom and Dad raise his normal dose of probiotics to as much as 25 billion CFU’s of adult probiotics a day.

I’m not sure how old she is, but my son (who’s 2) is doing very well with digestive enzymes. It’s completely holding off his symptoms and buying me time to figure out how to best treat him.
Also, have you looked into the GAPS diet? It’s designed for children, and you two could do it together.June 5, 2013 at 3:04 pm #105712

thanks guys ,Shay the Popsicles are a great idea ! ive already tried the fruit and stevia ,im gonna get sum Popsicle holders and try this !
I know i need to stop the banana its just they are so cheap and she loves them but i will do blueberries she can eat a whole container of them fast lol !She wouldnt have a problem eating more bluberries but it would cost much more ill have to talk to her dad about at least limiting her bananas to 1 or 2 a wk and giving her strawberry or blueberry instead .
i could raise her probiotic amount but i think ill try the kefir pops 1st .I am also going to give her more brussel sprouts as she likes them ,i figure food source antifungals are best ,she has been taking the coconut oil for around 2 months now and her thrush is no better .Im just upset about it i guess .
i didnt think bout enzymes i suppose i could give her sum Swedish bitters maybe half teaspoon ?i can look into the gaps diet i dont know much about it ,thanks .June 5, 2013 at 5:39 pm #105728

A book called “Preventing and healing autism “.
It is based on killing candida. I love it and use it like a ” bible” with one of my children. It is really well written and easy to follow for children.
Take care and hang in there you are on the right track.

Please forget about such books. The advice they give does help somewhat, but that’s merely through coincidence.
It’s like crossing a street. Those who do not watch out for oncoming cars run a high risk of getting injured. Now suppose someone writes a book with some made-up theory about “the left” always being dangerous. The book then goes on to tell everyone to have a good look to the left before crossing the street.
Surely some people will cheer about how this advice has tremendously helped them in not getting injured when crossing a street. And, of course, they are right in a way: the advice does help.
Of course it would be much better to know why looking out for cars coming from the left really helps you reach the other side without getting injured. It’s not because of this strange theory that’s being advocated in the book. Instead, even though the underlying theory is wrong, the advice that follows from it is good.
Understanding this will open the door to even better behaviour that will reduce the risk of getting injured even more than just looking out for cars coming from the left.
Same for the book that was recommended above. The advice that’s given does help autistic children improve – but not because of yeast of mercury or whatever.
The true reasons why the children improve are twofold. First and most important is the amount of, and the sort of, attention that is given to the children. Lots of attention, lots of human interaction, and thus lots of training of those very abilities that they are so sorely lacking.
The second reason is the eye of the beholder: the much more intense contact with the child makes you notice even the tiniest progress that could otherwise have gone unnoticed.
Thus, even if these books may be of help for those who are incapable of understanding the true way to relief for these children, they offer a crippled solution at best. Okay, that’s better than no solution at all, but it’s still a crippled solution. It would be much, much better to go for the real solution. Especially for those children!
Study what really helps autistic children. Once you know that, you’ll automatically apply some of the advice that those books give, but now for the real reason. And, more importantly, you’ll also apply additional measures from which the child will benefit.
Looking left before crossing a street is a good idea. Looking both left and right is an even better idea.
