We have Yeast Die Off!

When I ordered our cytoflora, I had a long discussion with Tami from Bioray on die off and potential behavior side effects we might see, AND how to handle them. Its taken 2 weeks to get Dominic up to the recommended dosage of 2 droppersful of Cytoflora 2x per day and boy do we have the giggles and high energy. Last night and this morning we started having fluffy poop. Hello Yeast Die off. This is good, because it means that what we're doing is working - we're getting it out.

So. I just ordered some activated charcoal, it'll arrive tomorrow. Tami had suggested using it 45min after the cytoflora dose to pull out the yeast that got stirred up. I'm trying to figure out where to add it to our supplementation schedule so that a. we'll be home to give it to him and b. it won't negatively affect the other supplements we're doing.

I've put an internet plea out a couple of places, so we'll see what comes back. But in the process of doing that, i wrote down our daily schedule of school, therapy, and supplementation. no wonder i'm tired.

No wonder you're tired, indeed!

I may have to do a check for cytoflora -- I've slacked on taking my probiotics and I (TMI) feel "itchy" at the back end. Gawd...three more months until I see Dr. K!

Anyway, good to hear that what you're doing is having an effect, even if the interim is a pain in the tuckus.
