"Damn those yeasties! Llewellyn was born via c-section May of last year and had thrush for the first two months of her life (it went undetected and then the medicine didn't work). I gave her probiotics and they eventually subsided but still rear…"
"That sounds like yeast. Try topical coconut oil.
Do you have/had any mercury fillings in your teeth? Antibiotics during pregnancy/birth? Has she had any antibiotics, antacids, or steroids? Yeast is common afterwards.
How old is she? If age 1, you…"
"Thanks, Pat. She doesn't have anything around the anus. I'm trying to think what else I eat that could be causing this. Is spicy food an issue? Her rash is always on her labia and starts off with little red spots that get worse and…"
"Kimberly, baby shouldn't have rashes, generally that is some food intolerance either directly or through mama's milk. Dairy is the most common cause, but is usually associated with a red ring around the anus, and/or green mucusy…"
"You can use some creams with cloth diapers. I've used Balmex for eight months (as needed, not all the time) with no problems. But there are creams that are specifically safe for cloth diapers, like Grandma El's and California Baby. The one…"
Hey Ladies (and gents),I'm noticing that my little one's bum is getting little red rashes with bumps. I know I'm not supposed to use diaper cream with CD but what am I supposed to do to treat the rash?See More
Holistic involves making choices based on a big picture vision and complete information.
How long have you been interested in holistic living?
In college I learned about organic foods and how farming had changed from family oriented to corporation, factory farming. When I moved to Portland in 2005, I was made more aware in light of the movement towards less chemical and artificial interventions in our food and daily lives.

Sage is great! Hopefully it works out that dshe is on call. That is the one major downside to that group. You just never know who you will get. Jan Floyd is actually my favorite. She and I went through a very difficult birth together and I think that bonded us.
The reason we are just targeting Purcell and Forrester is we hoped it would not get to the point where we needed to bring it to anyone elses attention. As of last night it looks like SB164 will die a quiet death and never be heard. We are keeping a close eye on it. If it pops back up then we will need to contact all of our senators. Right now it looks like we won and won't have to go that far! Yeah! Are you a member of NCFOM? If not you may be interested in joining. You can do so at www.ncfom.org.
I've dealt with a few different illnesses. Maybe you can call me tomorrow and let me know what's going on. Or maybe send your number. Pat and I are going to a conference but will have some time on the drive there and later in…"
Hope you are doing well, its been a while since I've come to the group MNOs but hope to attend soon and see folks again. This is kind of a random favor/question, but I seem to have a sick chicken and wondered if you had any expertise…"
"Thanks, lots of great ideas we can try. (I am a new member on the yahoo group as of last week.) We also read some information elsewhere about treating with arnica, do you have any experience with that? DH used arnica pellets on Sunday for muscle…"
"We had two recent discussions about poison ivy relief on the yahoogroup with many options to consider. Plantain, witch hazel and Epsom salt baths seem to offer significant relief.
Are you already a member there?…"
