Threelac/grapefruit Seed
0

10 posts in this topic

Is threelac enough to stop candida by itself? It is a probiotic and not an antifungal. I have been using threelac and Grapefruit seed extract together and noticed some pretty bad die off like symptoms. Should i ditch the GSE and just use Threelac, or should i continue with both? I want to rid the candida, but i dont want to be miserable while doing it. Has anyone else had these symptoms while treating candida: Bloated, headache, nausea, major fatigue, burning eyes, and dizzy spells?

Someone told me that threelac has gluten in it, I wish I could remember which glutenous protein it is. It is suppose to rid yourself from "Bloated, headache, nausea, major fatigue" I would check to see what exactly is in it to make sure. Check to see how they grew the bacteria, was it grown on a barley base? But I am told that healing crisis would make your feel this way.

But from taking a probiotic that made me feel the way you are describing, I WAS glutened from it, I failed a blood test and I had been taking it for about 3 weeks....I kept getting worse.

Not sure if all threelac is made by the same company....but the page I found here is their quote -

"ThreeLac and SIDE EFFECTS

Since Threelac is not a medication, there are no side effects. You may experience cleansing symptoms such as rashes, headaches or constipation as the toxins exit the body. Oxygen Elements Plus, LHB or ACTIVE ENZYMES and fiber are recommended to help with this cleansing process. Drink lots of liquids.

Is ThreeLac cultured in milk?

No, the flora in Threelac is not cultured in milk, nor are there any lactose or dairy products in Threelac at all.

Do These products Contain WHEAT, GLUTEN or CORN?

GHT makes every effort to avoid common food allergens in their products. ThreeLac and all products are free of corn, wheat, and gluten.

Is canola oil safe?

There is a lot of confusion about canola oil's safety. While the Internet can be a great source of information, many rumors and urban legends have circulated on web sites and been passed along in e-mails. Urban legends usually warn of dire consequences from something perfectly innocent; they often relate a story about someone who had such a terrible experience with something, yet that person almost always remains anonymous. These often frightening stories or accusations usually lack enough detail to make scientific, logical evaluation of the claim. Our own study and use of canola oil leads us to believe it is as safe as most other vegetable oils. Many common items in health food stores have Canola oil as an ingredient.

Canola oil contains less than 1 percent erucic acid. Actually, another name for canola oil is LEAR (Low Erucic Acid Rapeseed) oil.

Taking Oxygen Elements Plus with MEDICATIONS

Oxygen Elements Plus (OE+) increases absorption of nutrients and ALSO OF ANY MEDICATION. Therefore, if you are taking any pharmaceuticals (including inhalers for asthma or emphysema), take the OE+ an hour on either side of your regular medication. Other than that, it should not interfere whatsoever with any prescribed medication."

I hope that helps.

When doing a search of Threelac on line I found this in their ingredients, since the powers that be say that oats are okay for us (and many of us know otherwise) they can say it is gluten free. But it does contain oat fiber, something not all of us may tolerate.

A perfect blend of:

Organic Flaxseed

Organic (gluten-free) Oat fiber

Organic Acacia gum.

I also noticed the product contains yeast, something others of us may have a problem with. I noted a lot of comments from companies that sell the product saying it was gluten-free but I also noted many comments listed from people on other sites that said that although it is supposed to be gluten-free many had problems with it.

You may want to google threelac and read some of the comments from users that are gluten free before you decided for yourself whether this is something you want to take.

I've never used Threelac, but after researching it, today, according to one website it looks like it has gluten in it (or maybe it said something was derived from something with gluten in it; not sure which). Other sites, however, say that it's gluten-free. Kind of confusing. That might be what's causing the problems, though. It's worth a thought. It could very well be removing the candida, though.

I have heard of side-effects of candida-removal similar to those you describe (but through Threelac

Finally found the site I was talking about again. Here's what it says for Threelac:

"

Other Ingredients: Micro-Crystalline Cellulose, Refined Dry Beer yeast Powder, Gelatin, Canola Oil, Silica, Caramel, Titanium Dioxide.

Contains ingredients derived from milk and wheat (Milk Protein 4 ppm; gluten 30 ppm)

"

So, it has 30 ppm of gluten.

Here's the site URL:

You could always do product searches for the specific bacteria found in Threelac, and hope they're gluten-free

I didn't try threelac, but I did have die-off issues that were unpleasant. I alternated oregano oil and grapefruit seed extract. I switched every few days between them because I came across information that said some yeast respond to one and not the other and that the yeastie beasties can build up a tolerance, so I did my best to confuse them. I also ate coconut oil as it is antifungal and it seemed to do a good job. I had the die-off *flu* for about 2 weeks and then started feeling better. Then I added in a probiotic once I felt that my gut was getting to a better place. I didn't add it earlier because I was worried that the oregano oil and GSE would kill off the good critters, too. Not sure if that is correct or not, but it is how I did it...

How did you use the oil and extract? I'm curious.

    • Thanks, I'll check that out. I may have to apply for my own Medicare card in order to get any kind of coeliac-testing done beyond the screen (see above post.)  No, nobody has even mentioned it. I'm unsure if my doctor knows that I do not need to use my hands to vomit, or if she knows about the involuntary vomiting.  I have a part time job at McDonald's and make around $150 per week, which is how I afford to smoke. Mostly, I spend my money on (generally gluten-containing) binge food and cigarettes. I did attempt to start saving money, but then my shifts were cut at work - which meant I had more time to study, but no money, which was kind of pointless. It's complicated. Here in Australia, cigarettes are $25 per pack. These aren't fancy cigarettes either, just your run-of-the-mill Marlboro 20s. Thanks for caring. I am trying to stop I've had the vomiting thing all my life, way before I started smoking. And no, I'm not sure. I know he had an endoscopy and the flattened villi, but I'm not sure if he got a blood test - I assume he would have done, don;t know if it was the full panel. Supposedly he has this FODMAP thing, which I'll admit that I know next to nothing about. Interestingly, people who have to follow low-FODMAP or no-FODMAP diets can't eat gluten either, so there's that. 
    • Would a coeliac screen be the same as a test for antibodies, then? I have no idea why it was even included in my list of tests. It could be my brother, or my symptoms, or both - regardless, I can't say I know too much about the testing.  It's possible that my brother has coeliac disease, I really do worry about it sometimes. He was told to follow a strict low-FODMAP diet by his doctor, and eventually my parents stopped caring. Occasionally they will remind him not to eat things like pasta, greasy foods, etc. because of his condition, but by and large they don't care. He basically just eats whatever he wants. I'm not sure if it affects him or not. However, he isn't shorter than other family members - my dad is 183cm, and my brother is 178cm at the age of 14. Our mother is 173cm.  I do think I have bad digestion, yes. I get gassy and very bloated often, as well as constipated phases (and then following that, diarrhea phases.)  I have tried to ask my mum to call the doctor to get the tests done, but I'm hesitant to mention anything to do with gluten as I know they won't believe me, solely because a good friend of mine has celiac disease. I know they'll think I'm doing it for attention, or to be trendy, when in actual fact I'm just tired of being sick and having no explanation for it other than diet. I'm positive it's not dairy, as I was vegan for a couple of months at one stage. When I went back to eating animal products, I had no issues whatsoever. 
    • He had the IgG ELISA done as well as other blood panels, fecal and saliva tests. He is on an elimination diet right now where foods that score above 0.2 are eliminated for 2-6 months depending on the score, then added back slowly after the detox period.  I am aware that there is a lot of controversy over the IgG, and I'm not here to go into that issue, but I can say with certainty that eliminating the additional foods he reacted to has seen a huge reduction in the symptoms that persisted after cutting gluten and dairy. We will be attempting to add rice back in around October, and see how he does but until then I still need a solution for a baking mix.  I tried to wing it a bit with pumpkin bread today and my attempt was okay but not great. The loaf sank a bit and was overly chewy.  So, to my original question....recipes?
    • Ask the doctor's office!  But usually you can eat right after if you feel like it.  But ask them!  Some of them will try to give you crackers, so you may want to bring some gluten-free applesauce or Rice Chex
    • I'm wondering if he doesn't have an oat problem. He was only dx'd several months ago and really shouldn't use oats for a year after dx. Just thinking out loud. I too am wondering how the rice was picked out of all those other flours to be determined to be affecting him.
