I like to suggest a basic approach to treating childrens yeast infections and avoid the stronger herbs and supplements if at all possible. This approach has proven to work really really well without any unwanted side effects.
The first thing you need to do is to adjust their diets.
1. Get the sugar in their diets under control because sugar and simple carbs feed yeast. This means you need to restrict the obvious sugar and those foods that may not be obvious to you. That includes grains and pasta because they are quickly turned to sugar during digestion.
2. Milk because it is so acidic, which affects good bacterial growth and over all health.
3. High sugar fruits are not a good idea either.
4. Anything else that comes in a package check the label for carbs. If it's over 9 carbs per serving then avoid it.
5. They also need to avoid yeasty foods.
The diet adjustments might be a little tough but you have to do it. Their sugar cravings and possible tantrums will pass in a few days so don't give in.
Colostrum for treating childrens yeast infections has to be the one of the single greatest immune system products ever. It contains high amounts of immunoglobulins like IgA, which defends the mucous linings in the body. It has the capability to kill yeast, bacteria, and aid the body in the defense of viral attack.
When treating childrens yeast I like and recommend Symbiotics Wild Cherry Colostrum Plus Chewables because the acid in the stomach destroys colostrum if taken in the capsule form. Symbiotics Colostrum Plus contains 800mgs of colostrum and 12mgs of lactoferrin. Colostrum is very potent and lactoferrin is an excellent yeast killer as well as one of the best immune stimulaters known. Your kids will also love the taste. Doses should be 2 tabs 3 x a day for children and with infants 1 tab two times a day.
There's one thing you need to know about colostrum, it tastes horrible if it is not flavored. Most kids will refuse to eat it. The colostrum product above is not only the best I can find but kids also love the taste. Be careful though, I've had Mom's report that their kids start trying to sneak it and eat it like candy they love it so much.
Fifteen minutes after giving them the colostrum, give them either the 11-Strain probiotic powder or Custom Probiotics 1. The CP-1 capsules can be opened and the 11-Strain comes in a powdered form if it’s easier. Doses for CP-1 should be two capsules at bedtime, which equals 120 billion bacteria. After a few days raise the dose to 2 capsules two times a day. After a few more days you can raise the dose again if you need to. If your child develops diarrhea then you are giving them too much. All you do in that case is back off the dose a little so it subsides and then stay at that dose.
Doses for the 11-Strain powdered probiotic should be the same but I do suggest you start low and work up as needed. Most probiotics for treating childrens yeast infections only contain 500 million to 1 or 2 billion bacteria and this is way too weak to be effective. They need to get at least 30 billion a day to do any good.
For infants I do suggest you mix the colostrum and probiotic. All you do is crush the tablets and dump in the probiotic, add a little water to make a paste and feed it to them with a spoon.
For really stubborn infections, Profase can be used but I would start at one half capsule and work up from there. Profase is not as strong as the Custom Probiotics but the bacteria strains are the best you will find to kill yeast. They are medically proven to work for yeast.
Biofase for yeast is a fantastic enzyme product for treating childrens yeast
infections. It contains enzymes
that eat the biofilm and cell wall of yeast and bad bacteria. The dose should be one-half capsule, twice a day, per 40 pounds of body weight. Children 14 and up can take adult doses.
If they have a rash or skin yeast then you can apply Coconut oil directly to the infected area. Coconut oil contains lauric acid and other compounds that kill candida yeast and the oil soothes any itching and irritation they might have. You can also feed it to them to help break down the biofilm yeast makes to protect itself. It is a very good oil to cook with and the food cooked in this will have anti-fungal properties.
Does it really work?
I am writing to let you know that we just got the results back from another round of G.I testing for my son. If you recall, he is a 6 year old with numerous food allergy & sensitivity issues, and the previous test had revealed that he had severe systemic candida infection.. Since your recommendation last October, I increased his intake of Biofase to 2 capsules per day, and he now shows NO yeast or other pathogens in his gut!! This is a HUGE milestone for him, and I cannot say how thankful I am to you for your help with his case! The Biofase has helped him significantly, along with the other supplements that he has been taking (Colostrum, L-Glutamine, pro-biotics etc).
Please feel free to use this as yet another positive reference on your highly
informative website.. The information contained there was valuable for us, and am
sure will help a ton of others as well.
I just wanted to share some info with you that has worked for me. I have been giving my now 1 year old daughter the chewable colostrum tabs you suggest since she's been about 5 months old & what works great is using a mortal & pestle to grind the tabs up, then I put the powder in a little dish along with the CP-1 probiotics & just a tiny bit of water & mix with her spoon to make a thin paste. I just feed it to her with a spoon & she's always loved it & it's so easy to do! If anyone else is trying to figure out how to give their baby this, then it's a great & easy way. She hasn't had oral thrush for quite a while now.
Thanks for everything!
I wanted to take a moment of your time to let you know that our daughter Amber (3 1/2) is doing extremely well after following your recommendations. No more itchy vagina and excellent over all heath.
I ended up buying the colostrum chewables by Symbiotics 1.2g each (now I need to find them in Canada! Paid lots of duty fees!) and the pro-biotic you recommended with 50 billion active cells since I could not quickly find any equivalent product at our local health food stores. They both were delivered within 48 hours which was wonderful. I take the colostrum as well especially when I feel a slight sore throat and a cold coming on since I read this suggestion on your web site.
Amber is still taking one pro-biotic a day (I open it up and spread it on her wheat free flax seed bread or in yogurt) and is taking the colostrum chewables - which she really likes and I am trying to bring her down from 3 in the am and 3 in the pm down to 1.
Thanking you again for your time and generous spirit.
Sincerely and most gratefully,
Pointe-Claire, Quebec, Canada
The Colostrum I am taking myself and giving to my precious baby is working. No more yeast infection for Baby Allyson! Thanks for your time and attention.
Sincerely and gratefully,
I wanted to let you know that my son's yeast is down to "rare!" on the stool test. Can you believe it? Still shooting for a result of "none," but what an improvement from when I took things over (with your help) when his levels were at a 4 plus!
