I am constantly reading, on the Holistic Moms loops and other places, that people take probiotic supplements for health and immunity. In my efforts to become healthier and more natural in my approach, I shopped for and bought some probiotic capsules. They are not inexpensive (!) but the ones I found at my local natural food store were much less expensive than those I've looked at online. As there were many to choose from and I don't know one from the next, I asked the advice from a man who worked in the store. This is what I've come home with:
Am I nuts? Maybe.
Someone just told me that probiotics may be able to help with eczema.... that would be good news, indeed.
The following information came from HERE:
"Studies suggest that babies at high risk for allergic disorders such as eczema have different types and numbers of bacteria in their digestive tracts than other babies, and that probiotic supplements taken by pregnant women and children may reduce the occurrence eczema in children."
It said also that it may help kids who already have eczema. What about mommies?
Well, it's March 4th, and I just took my first probiotic. I also took my first fish oil capsule. I don't feel any different. lol. =)
