Ulcerative Colitis

My son has ulcerative colitis. This has been a life saver to keep him off of prescription drugs. Give it 8 days to stop the diarrhea and bleeding, it will change your life! Works great in conjuction with Primal Defense and Alive multivitamins to give him plenty of energy. ****2/09 Felt I should add this since I had to take my son off of S. Boulardii after about a year and a half. He began having other allergy symptoms and we found he had developed an allergy to the product itself. Even though it continued to control his Ulcerative Colitis, he began having inflamation in his eyes and a rash on his arms. It says right on the bottle "not for long term use". If you want to find long term help with Ulcerative Colitis and other allergy problems try LDA! It is the only thing that has had a permanent help (http://drshrader.com/).

Ulcerative Colitis

My 13 year old son has been battling UC for 5 years now. I have tried many different probiotics and treatments to help relieve his system naturally. I had high hopes for these probiotics because of all of the great reviews. But I am very disapointed...these seem to have made his symptoms worse. I tried the loading dose of 5 pills 2 times a day for 5 days and he had a terrible flare up. I kept going though hoping it was actually doing some good. but after a couple of weeks more on the normal dose, he was still in a flare so I took him off of them and he began to improve. I decided to give them one more try a month later, but again he has gotten worse and so I will have to move on to another probiotic. Maybe he is allergic to some of the other ingredients, not sure. But I have also noticed a strange odor from his mouth which he has not had before. So I am sorry that I have to give these a very negative review. They just haven't worked for my family. My mother has told me that I also have a funny odor to my breath while on these.

rash

We used these in our family for over a year. At first I really liked them, noticed more energy and improved health, but over time we developed skin rashes. My kids had rashed on their arms at the inside crease of their elbows. I had itchy skin on my arms and head. For the longest time I was unable to figure out what was happening. I thought it was an allergy to gluten. but even going gluten free did not make the rash go away completely. It would come and go for no apparent reason. Finally I took us all off of these Alive vitamins and the rash went away completely and has never come back. I tried myself to go back on them about a year later since I missed the increased energy, but immediately my itchy skin came back so I had to stop taking them again. I am not sure why. I found on my second try of taking them the itchy skin was worse when I spent a lot of time in the sun (I even thought I might be allergic to the sun), but when I quit taking them the irritation disapeared completely, even with a lot of sun exposure. Could it be the vitamin D in the supplement? My family spends lots of time out of doors, so the vitamin D theory could be it. Too bad! These vitamins have a lot to offer.
