yeast doctor australia?

Posted by

Would you happen to know a doctor in Australia, preferably Canberra, who specialises in yeast disorders?

I have a 7 month old son who has eczema, and after reading all your material I suspect it is related to the 4 courses of antibiotics I took when I was pregnant with him. (I also had a very severe case of nipple thrush not long after he was born, followed by a mild case a few months later that still rears its head now and again).

I was also wondering how many acidophilus tablets I should give him a day, and whether nystantin powder is necessary?
Can I get rid of, or at least control the eczema, by simply sticking to a strict diet? I have only been on it for a week, but already it's starting to help clear up his cradle cap.

If i remmber right isn't Canberra outside Sydney? I do know a holistic doctor that lectures all over Australia and he was based in Brisbine [i've worked for him] His name is Dr. Hadley; Perhaps you can call information for the phone number and he might know someone in your area. I also have worked with a physician in Melbourne named Dr. Ziggy Sosay, he really can help you also and he is a dear friend of mine, great man! Let me know exactly whre you are and and i'll write a friend over there and look into it more if you need me to.;

Now for the yeast, candida problem, yes it sounds like you and the child has it. Nystantin definetly works, i was on it years ago, but you have to follow the food plan and really be off sugar and fruit normally and watch out on the Flour products and yeast;Yes, you can get rid of it with other great suppliments besides using Nystantin, but you need more then acidophillus; I like the way Saccharomyces boulardii Probiotic yeast from Allergy Reserch works. It would be great for you to find someone else to work with over there to help assist you and the child though.

Thanks for the info, but I must admit I'm having trouble locating either of the two gentlemen you're talking about.
I might need some more details, if you have them.

And yes you're right, Canberra is about 3 hours drive from Sydney.

Hi, Sara.

At least you are finally on the right track.

Listen to Terri-Lynn!

1. It is nearly impossible to overdose with probiotics. I would use an adult dose with a 7 month old.
2. I would also use the adult dose of pure Nystatin powder USP (750,000 units 4 times a day) for the 7 month old.
3. If the diet is strictly adhered to this should be over in 4-6 weeks for the child--longer for you.

Let us know how you both do.

Walt

Well i looked in my past address book and see if calling the numbers will work for Dr. Iggy Soosay;
He was at canterbury,Rd. Canterbury, Victoria Phone-Office-
use to be 9889-6681 or 011 61 3 9889-6721 for us; Office was 984 Toorack Rd. Camberwell, Victoria
He certainly can guide you or get you to someone, he is on or was on a Medical board of Australia;
Now there is also a cancer [holistic approch] center i've done a little at over there at the Gawler Cancer Foundation that number is 059-671730-see if you can find that [i think it is south of Melbourne though;
Here is one closer to you;Corrimal Family Chiropractic Center Suite 12 Corrimal Plaza 204 Princess Highway [042] 84 8009 1 1/2 hour south of Sydney in Wollongong- you might call them and ask for someone, i know the family and they are very up on all of the yeast problems;
If you'd like to e mail me for any more info it is detoxer@prodigy.net-Terri-Lynn Johnson

Dr Stoll,

Thanks for your advice, but I guess I'm still wondering whether I need Nystantin. The reason I ask is because I suspect it will be difficult to get a prescription, and because I'd rather not medicate my son if I didn't really need to.

Hi, sara.

Can you "medicate" anyone with oral sand? Nystatin is not absorbed any more than sand would be.

Nystatin is more available outside the US because, since it has no side effects--is not absorbed) it is not "by prescription only" in most countries.

Hope this helps.

Walt

Thanks for your reply Dr Stoll. It seems I do need a prescription for Nystatin in Australia....but yesterday I managed to get one! Yay!

However, if you don't mind, I have a few more questions...this time about the diet I should be on. I find breastfeeding makes me SUPER hungry, so I don't want to miss out on any food, or nutrition, unless I really have to (both for my sake and that of my son).

After reading through the archives, it's clear you think eliminating baker's yeast is not necessary. I can see your point. But what about other goods? Have I gone overboard in eliminating milk? Would soy milk, or lactose-free milk be okay? And what about multi-grain bread....is that still too refined? The third food I'm really missing is potatoes. I've read I should stay off them because of the starch, but again is that going too far?

As for my son, I've refrained from giving him any pureed fruit for the past 10 days, and I'm worried he may be missing out on all the good things that come with fruit.
What should I do there?

Your reply would be greatly appreciated, as I'm getting a bit confused as to what I can eat!

Sara

Thanks, Sara.

100 years ago there MIGHT have been some food value in fruits but no more!

Potatoes are a wonderful whole food but only if the peelings are eaten with the white stuff.

You really need to have a copy of Beth's Book. Your library can get you a copy to read.

The healthiest diet, which includes all the micronutrients needed for healthy growth of a child, is a totally unrefined diet.

Once you have read Beth's Book, you will know what to look for on the lable of manufactured foods.

Let us know how you do.

Thanks very much for the contact information. I've started my son on the Nystatin, so I'll see how he does, and I'll contact Dr Soosay to see if he knows of anyone in my area.

I wanted to ask you though whether there was a better way to give my son the Nystatin powder. At the moment I'm opening up the capsules and putting the powder into his mouth with a wet finger. It's obvious he doesn't like the taste much (unlike the acidophilus). Would it work if I gave it to him in a glass of water?

By the way, if my son has CRS (thanks to the many antibiotics during my pregnancy), then according to the archives that I've read, he must have LGS. How on earth did he get that at such an early age?! Does it have anything to do with the fact that there is a history of eczema, asthma, sinutis etc on my husband's side of the family?

Hi Walt,

I'm surprised to read there's NO nutritional value in fruit at all! I knew that it was akin to sugar.

Some of my friends are gardeners and they are into growing "heirloom" vegetables, which are the original vegetables from before companies started hybridizing and cross-pollinating. In other words, the original old fashioned vegetables.

So if one was able to obtain "heirloom" fruit, there would be some nutrition in it since it's from the old days?

Still trying to understand the fruit issue. I'm okay without eating fruit, but I sure do miss the delight of it.

Thanks, Happygal

Thanks, Happygal.

Certainly somne of the old "heirloom varities" have more substance BUT they are still growing in practically totally depleted soil.

If you can go to an old Amish farm fencerow and try some of the apples growing there, you will soon know what I am talking about.

If you can actually get any fresh organic vegetables you will also begin to appreciate what we have been missing.

Namaste`

Dr Walt,

My son was scratching like crazy last night. I presume at this stage that it's the yeast die-off. Is there ANYTHING I can do to lessen the impact?

Your help would be much appreciated (again!)

Sara

Hi, sara.

I seriously doubt that this is die-off. Moer likely it is a hypersensitivity due to LGS.

Walt

In Reply to: Re: yeast doctor australia? (Archive in whole foods.) posted by Walt Stoll on October 18, 2002 at 18:01:38:

So what can I do to help the hypersensitivity pass?
Will the Nystatin and probiotics help in easing the itching?

By the way, how does someone so young get LGS? Was it the antibiotics I took when I was pregnant, or the fact that eczema, rhinitis, hayfever etc run on my husband's side of the family?

Sara

Thanks, sara.

Depending upon genetic susceptibility, and the health of the mother, people can be BORN with LGS.

See the archives about the elimination/provocation diet since that is what is designed to identify and deal with this complication of LGS (hypersensitivity).

Getting rid of your itching is a long term process of getting rid of the causes. For quick results, the only thing I know is self-hypnosis. See the hives archives.
