Can I combine the two? I have high levels of it and probably candida and SIBO too. Would it be better for me if I added biofilm enzymes and VSL#3 probiotics? How about coconut oil, garlic, digestive enzymes, cranberry juice, vitamin c? At what... (more)
It seems to be well established that degradation of collagen can facilitate disease and I don't think anyone here will dispute that (degradation of the collagen in your gums would result in periodontal disease for example), but could... (more)
Worried about collagen degradation? Bone broth is your panacea.

Just two weeks ago, I posted about potential thrush from breastfeeding here: http://paleohacks.com/questions/145381/breastfeeding-moms-how-did-you-deal-with-thrush#axzz25TD7C3PM So, the good news is that it probably isn't thrush. Bad news is,... (more)
Personally, I would not take the antibiotic. When I was nursing my last baby and had a plugged duct, I used warm compresses often and pumped on that breast every two hours. I couldn't stand nursing on that side (I was also dealing with thrush at... (more)
