Getting Rid of Thrush...FOR GOOD!

Megan over at Sorta Crunchy posted about a thrush remedy, which reminded me that I keep meaning to do this post!!

Since Cooper was a week old, we have been dealing with thrush. Let me tell you, there is no bigger pain the you-know-what than getting rid of thrush! UGH! We did the nystatin-for 4 weeks mind you, to no avail. That ended in a round of Cooper taking Diflucan. A month went by, and it came back. So, the pediatrician put him on Diflucan once again. A month later it comes back again, once again we do diflucan. A couple of weeks later, you guessed it, back AGAIN!

On top of the diflucan, we had been boiling all paci's, never using a paci more than once during the day, washing all the laundry in grapefruit seed extract to kill the yeast, using lotramin creams, taking grapefruit seed extract pills and probiotics, etc...You name it, we did it! NOTHING was working.

I was OVER giving my little baby anymore diflucan, so I decided to do some research.

I found a product called "ThreeLac" that apparently was the only thing that worked for many people to get rid of their yeast issues. It is a triple probiotic, that is in a powder form. We started taking it at the end of January-I take one packet a day in the powder form, and I dissolve 1/2 of a packet in about 1 tsp. of water for Cooper to take. He LOVES it and sucks it right down.

(I got the picture off of the website I ordered it from, so don't mind the ordering info...unless you want to order it! ;) )

I am beyond thrilled to say, that here less than 2 months later our thrush issues are GONE!!! Praise God! About 1 month in, we had a flair up, which apparently is normal as the yeast tries to "fight back". But here we are now, going strong with NO THRUSH!!

I HIGHLY recommend this product if you are struggling with any type of yeast issues. Apparently, 85% of Americans are struggling with yeast infestations in their body, which causes a variety of ailments, and they don't even know it!

I agree...good stuff!! Jimmy and I both had yeast problems, and we took ThreeLac as well. No problems anymore. Jackson has had some problems, but we've had him on a probiotic since he was 1 mth old, and he hasn't had any problems with yeast since. Gotta keep those good bacteria to kill the bad ones.

What probiotic do you have him on? I think we might switch to something else for maintenance once our threelac supply is gone.

So.......... we got a package today and may I say thank you. Seriously, it was very thoughtful of you to think of us.

Thanks again so much for the heads-up on this!
