Allergies, Candida & Building Immunity

Postby flower » Tue Apr 19, 2011 1:53 am

A year ago, Rowan developed allergies. Then, in December, she got a secondary yeast infection (Candida) from it. Since then, I've been researching my butt off and making major changes to help her (we even got rid of the carpeting in our house). I did a post listing the ways we helped her along with a list of ways to boost a pup's immune system, which helps tremendously with allergies & candida (as well as all illnesses & infections).

If anyone's interested, here is the post I did. I'd repost here, but it has a lot of links & I'm unsure if they'll come through okay in a copy and paste..... :anxious:

Please note that while Emma & Rowan are no longer vegan, they are as close I can get them to vegan without sacrificing their health (probably 99% vegan, really, so pretty darn close). Homemade food isn't an option for us, as I explain in the post. I hope that a few of you find this information helpful!

If anyone else has any suggestions, I'd love to hear them! I'm still reading whatever I can about these issues and will continue to do so. :)
