Children and Candida!
Children are very susceptible to yeast overgrowth because of the prevalence of subscribing anti-biotics for ear infections and the like. Kids may also pick yeast infections up from their mother as infants while in the birth canal or from breast-feeding.
I recently read that a baby's digestive system is completely sterile when the baby is born. Their digestive system is populated with good and presumably bad bacteria exclusively from the mother's breast milk or the formula they are given.
If a mother has candida, she will not be able to pass the baby as many good bacteria as some one who is not fighting this condition, so the baby develops candida because they don't have any good bacteria to combat it. If they have candida, their immune systems are compromised which leads to sickness and possibly ear infections that are usually treated with - antibiotics! Of course, this only makes the condition worse... Information on the Amount of ThreeLac a child can take.
Here is a series of emails I received recently from a mom who was at her wit's end with an 11 week old infant with painful, painful oral thrush and yeast rash. This mom treated the baby by rubbing ThreeLac on the surfaces of her mouth and cheeks with her finger and then nursing the baby.
The baby, who was born with painful oral thrush and rashes, had been on Tylenol every four hours for all of her life. She had her hands in her mouth constantly trying to deal with the pain and cried all the time.
Within hours of application, she was able to sleep through the night without screaming. The mom is treating herself for systemic yeast with the ThreeLac and OE+, as well so that she will not pass any more candida on to her baby:

I found your site and want to order not only for myself but my children...there is more to the story.
My daughter has yeast bad. Her mouth itches so bad she constantly has her hands in there and she was not a thumb sucker. She rubs her hand on her tongue. Her back side has been raw and bleeding with deep ulcers.
Oh Hannah actually liked the powder and I scrubbed her mouth twice with the ThreeLac.
Leanne, Just wanted to let you know. I ended up going to a wound specialist and Hannah has skin now (The yeast rash was so bad, that Hannah could not grow skin around her diaper area)!!
Here is another mom with a 9-month-old baby - Stephanie from South Carolina wrote:
Caleb is doing GREAT! I tried the digestive enzymes like you suggested, though not from the supplier you recommended. I got some from my local health food store. After two days on the enzymes, Caleb I stopped giving Caleb his laxatives. He has done great. He is having normal bowel movements for the first time in his life!
Yeast overgrowth could be related to the following conditions in children: Autism, ADHD, ADD, headaches, depression, insomnia, skin rashes, eczema (see Yeast Symptoms for more details)
If your children have ever been treated with antibiotics for an ear infection or been on corti-steroids like Prednisone for allergies, you should be concerned about candida overgrowth in them.
This syndrome is a self-perpetuating cycle where the kids are treated for an ear infection with antibiotics, the yeast overgrowth starts which inhibits their immune system and then allows another ear infection which gets treated by stronger and stronger antibiotics.
When I purchased ThreeLac for myself, I have to admit that the last people I would have thought would have benefited personally from the product were my children.
However, after I purchased the product and saw what a wonderful affect it was having on me, I began to wonder about them. I suspected that I had probably given all of my kids candida as babies while they were nursing and although not all of them had tested positive on the saliva test, I figured that ThreeLac as a dietary supplement was not going to hurt them and could certainly help.
For us, the ThreeLac treatment for all five children would be paid for in being able to avoid two visits to the doctor so it seemed worth it.The three oldest had been on antibiotics as young children for ear infections and the like, so we new that they at least needed some Probiotics introduced into their systems to achieve some PH balance. OE+ We decided to give it a try and put all five of our kids on ThreeLac. The three oldest children got one pack a day and the youngest two shared one pack each day.
The kids love to take their ThreeLac. It is lemon-flavored and has about the powdery texture of the candy powder in a pixie stix. Although the candida in each of our children manifested in different ways, within a week we were seeing differences that had to be attributable to the ThreeLac.
In our oldest child (12 years), his chronic cough had cleared up entirely. What a relief not to listen to him cough every night for hours. He also had skin bumps on his chest that were gone after about two weeks. His insomnia has also cleared up. He reports improved mental function which is showing up as in improvement in his schooling. He also had allergies which are much improved.
Our second child (10 years) has had skin rashes on her cheeks for several years. This is now healing! She is also slimming down and has much more energy.
Our third child (8 years) has suffered from chronic stomach trouble for her entire life (she got antibiotics in the hospital as a newborn even though it turned out she did not need them).
She would get a stomach ache about every other day, had a puny appetite, and would occasionally go into a diarrhea and vomiting jag for no apparent reason that could last for weeks.
Since taking ThreeLac her appetite has improved immeasurably and she has not had any instances of vomiting, diarrhea or stomach aches. Her insomnia has also cleared up.
Our fourth child (5 years) could not get through the night without having to get up and go to the bathroom (I wonder if those children that wet the bed at night might have candida?).
After a few weeks on 1/2 a pack a day, she is not getting up at night anymore. She is also warming up. Until recently she has been quite proud of the fact that she has the coldest hands in the family. She hasn't been able to shock us with how cold her hands are anymore.
My youngest (3 years) has had a chronic vaginal yeast infection that I have tried to clear up with everything imaginable. At first I thought it was a diaper rash and so would bathe her every night and let her "air" out. The rash didn't change.
Then I took to treating it with Lotrimin. The rash would respond to that, but if I quit putting Lotrimin on her the rash would come back. We started her on ThreeLac orally, but I also put about a 1/6 of a pack of the ThreeLac powder on her labia and the rash cleared up entirely in 4 days.
I could see the difference after the first treatment. After 6 days I quit treating the rash topically, but continued the oral treatment. After 3 weeks of taking ThreeLac orally, her "yeast" rash is not coming back. It is the first time I can remember in 2 1/2 years that she has not had a yeasty rash.
The other thing that was exciting for us was this:
In a fifteen day period all of the kids grew a minimum of 3/4 of an inch and are still growing! I seriously feel that the yeast was stealing their nutrients and their bodies were so busy fighting the toxins the yeast was putting out that they could not grow.
I believe if we had not found this product that their growth would have been permanently stunted. We are also noticing much happier and healthier children. Their attitudes are much more positive and upbeat. They have more energy during the day and are sleeping better at night.
What a difference this has made for our family. We think we will keep the children on ThreeLac for a total of 3 months to make sure we got rid of the candida overgrowth and then take them off the ThreeLac and see how they do. What a blessing to have circumvented the problems that would surely have developed for them as young adults if we had not found this truly amazing product.
We are not doctors, we are just relating the experiences we have had with our children. Certainly, not everyone will have the same results we have had, as each person reacts differently to candida overgrowth, but it certainly can't hurt to try this on your kids.
It is an all-natural, safe product that is pleasant to take. ThreeLac could make all of the difference in the world to your children, too. Learn more about these wonderful products!
ThreeLac is safe for children 6 months of age and up to take. Please email us to get a copy of children amounts.
