    probiotics

    My son has a realllllly nasty sore on his ankle. It was cultured and the report back was 2 bugs, one of which must be treated with IV antibiotics (he didn't get the name of the antiobiotic). When he had IV antibiotics before (5 1/2 years ago) it really messed with his digestive system. I'm looking for a list of probiotics that you guys have used to counteract the affects. I think we used Lacto-bacillus then (it was good). He bought some acidolphilus (wow, spelling). Other ideas? Please.

    Seriously I just had Activia yogurt EVERY DAY or the Dan-Activ and that was all it took for me?

    I have had a lot of people use yogurt (without fruit in it, although if that is the only way to get it in to you, go ahead and use the fruit) to help the digestive system. I am sure that Activia or Dan-Activ may also work, but are more expensive. One regular yogurt a day has worked for many people.

    When I take antibiotics I take floranex as well: http://www.drugs.com/mtm/floranex.html it seems to help keep things regular.

    I have used Culturelle (lactobacillus GG), which is available in most drugstore chains. It worked very well. A month supply costs about $20.

    The yougurt wal mart sells has more differing bacteria/goodies in it than any of the name brands do. Tastes better, more flavors, cheaper, more of it, works great. The white containers.

    In the future, keep a bottle of NEEM OIL around. This is a natural EVERYTHING BAD killer/repellent. If I get a wound, this is one of two things I put on it and cover with gauze/bandaid. The other is tepezcohuite bark(carried in a vit E base) as a salve.

    I get both from ebay. Lasts a loooong time and VERY effective at healing wounds. Take it from an old pro.
    tepezcohuite http://tinyurl.com/y8tms8q been getting it from him since 2007 he also sent me a container of pure bark in 2007 when I had a bad wound and I was hunting for something to heal it, that's when I found him/it swear by it now, it IS my medicine cabinet

    neem has a bunch of sellers, get cold pressed as it is better

    read up on the two, you'll be amazed

    I use neem oil to rid animals of fleas, ticks and prevent infestation also kills ear mites in pets, only takes a couple days, probably dead in one but I treat twice to be sure.
    I have used it to cure athlete's foot also that Tinactin didn't touch
    Killed mites on some of my plants last year also. Dang this stuff is good.

    I followed your advice from years back on that salve Capn ... unfortunately (and probably because there was a bone infection present), it did nothing for me but boy did it stink! lol

    I have yet to try it on a superficial wound though.

    Yes, it has no effect on osteomyelitis, lol. I sprinkled pure bark dust in mine and it grew the wound closed with osteo anyway...up til I had a wound doc clean it and sew it up later. Then I put the salve on the stitched area until after the stitches came out and it healed.
    I use it on any cut/wound I get now and they heal fast. Actually had a wound between me butt n family jewels a couple months ago. It was like a big split and was deep. I used the powdered bark sprinkled into the salve to make it T.-heavy, put neem oil atop that and covered it with a BIG bandaid. It was about an inch wide in the beginning. Freaked me out, I know the drill and didn't have free down time available, so I fixed it myself. It was healed in less than two weeks. I bought two boxes of the fat bandaids for large wounds...10 in a box. I still have a few here.
    Fastest anything has healed on me including above injury level. Those two are PERFECT together. I kinda like the smell, it is a light smell to begin with.
    It's tepezocohuite bark suspended in vit e oil, wheat germ oil and rose hips oil.
    The neem oil has a zillion uses and is a heavy hitter in the all naturals arena.

    Matter 0 fact, I just ordered some more T, I was getting low. Now, the neem oil smells, but for it's value, I don't mind.

    The drinkable Activia is tasty and works well.
    Ugh, I've been kissed by a dog!

    I agree ... it's part of my regime and if I go without, I actually feel horrible.
