Candy - posted on 11/13/2009 ( 6 moms have responded )




My son was resently on two rounds of antibiotics and has had major setbacks has not said a single word in weeks now :( I am not impressed with his DAN dr because when I told him about hte problem he told me to double up on probiotics when we had not even started them yet... anyway he is now on them and fish oil and a multi vit and zinc. I am not seeing any improvement how long will this take and is there anything I can do to speed up the process? I think I will go crazy if I don't hear him say Mama soon!!!

OMG! I feel you pain. Yeast is very hard to kill off. Keep up with the probiotics that is a major factor in helping this out. Also eliminate anything that will ferment. No grains or fruit and definitely no sugar. Start adding digestive enzymes (oxybile and beitene HCL) to the probiotics and get him a a full array of minerals. We have heard mixed reports about coconut oil, but is has been reported to help out in killing off excess amounts of yeast. Also add garlic to your diet. Garlic is excellent for killing off yeast. Good luck!

Our DAN is great and we had major yeast overload in both my twins (boy PDD-NOS, girl major food allergies). We treated them with the diflucan, went on the GFCF/egg free diet also had fish oil, zinc lotion, supplements, and methyl B 12 shots and we saw a major improvement within weeks in both children

Have you tried changing his diet? My son also sees a DAN! dr. and she has been great. At our first DAN! dr. visit she put him on an antibiotic type of medicine for 21 days and then on a supplement called saccromyces and that has really helped keep my sons yeast levels under control. He is on a GFCF diet, along with multiple supplements, vitamins, and minerals.

get on a 10 day treatment with diflucan or nystatin -- sugar free. your DAN should get you this script

Also, don't forget activated charcoal to mop up the icky stuff.

my suggestions are try a dairy free diet. before my son was diagnose with ASD. We seen an allergy specialist and we were told that my son is allergic to a milk protien called Caisen. Now remember this was 6 months before our ASD diagnosis.We took al forms of dairy away and within a week I seen a huge difference in behavior and with in 4 weeks his speech trippled.It may not work for your son but I say what will it hurt to try. We use soy and rice products now it was an ajustment but well worth it. Also if you feel that he has a yeast over load you should be able to find something from a natural food store that is like an over the counter version of diflucan.That might help. Good luck to you.

Okay I am not a professional I've never heard of a yeast overload unless it's a yeast infection. These kids take so long to recover (neuro-typical children take a while to recover from infections too). I'm not sure what you mean when you say you'll go crazy if your son doesn't say your name soon? Please be paitent my son even without illness would take leaps forward and backward and has done so since the day we got the diagnosis. I think it is a matter of time and his body healing from the infection he had and not so much speeding up with vitamins and supplements. Not sure. But good luck!
