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.

Thank you............my maon concern is starting off too fast with killing the candida and facing very harsh die off symptoms. I really want to get better fast, but i dont want to be debilitated while doing so.

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.

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I hear you Gemini. It's nucking futz!
    • Test Results
      I went gluten free & never looked back! I have dh, the celiac rash. That makes it pretty darn easy to go gluten-free the moment you figure it out. I was not about to continue eating gluten for even one more day just so the medical establishment would be satisfied in my dx. There was not a moment of doubt in my mind that I had dh & therefore celiac. As it turns out, weirder than weirder than weird and the odds I can't even begin to imagine.... I have since, by sheer accident, had 2 docs officially dx me. Is that crazy or what??!! I did not go in asking for a dx nor even hoping for one. Frankly, I just plain didn't care what they thought. The medical community has failed me numerous times throughout my life so I don't have the highest regard for them. You are 54, I was 54 when I figured mine out. I have no kids so did not need to consider them in my decision not to go for an official dx. My parents had already passed away so that was not an issue. My brother had passed away so that was not an issue either. I did contact my nephew & tell him to let my sister know so she could get tested. So I have done my duty by her & she's an adult and a nurse & can make her own decisions. I do urge people to go for an official dx whenever possible, especially when they have kids or other 1st degree family members. If it's doable for them I think they should make a good effort at it. Also, there are certain people who express they don't think they can stick to the diet without the official dx. I think those people should pursue a dx with all their might. I have never had the slightest problem sticking religiously to gluten free eating. I have never doubted myself. I know you have tired HARD! Super, super HARD. I commend you for your dogged pursuit. I would not, could not blame you for giving it all up & just going gluten free this instant. That is a choice only you can make but I fully support whatever decision you make.
    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      Your brother sounds like mine, Squirmy.  He was a Type 1 diabetic and had flaming celiac symptoms to boot but his docs always, always blamed his diabetes on everything.  He lived in the country and the docs in his state just were so far from being Celiac savvy.  I doubt they ever diagnosed one. His health was failing so badly that in the end, with the 3 MONTHS of non-stop diarrhea going on, he became so dehydrated that he had a heart attack and died last August 4th. His biggest mistake was trusting these idiots completely.  I think his brain was so messed up and confused that he just couldn't understand what I was trying to tell him.......that good ole brain fog.  He did what celiac's may do when left untreated for years and years.....they slowly fail and then die.  It still is extremely painful for me to think about because I was close to him.  I still see many people in my life that I think have it because of their extreme symptoms. Listening to them complain that the doctors aren't helping them. Try suing them for malpractice too......it would be too hard to prove. And then we have those who know there is something very wrong but won't give up wheat bread because that is unfathomable to them.  This disease can drive anyone crazy, for many different reasons. 
    • I'm actually scared to go to the doctor and could use some advice
      Good for you, Elle!  Now you can figure out the problems and feel better.  We are all interested with how things go for you so please do update us when you can.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
