Newborn Allergies – It’s no secret that young children are having a massive increase in allergy issues. But one researcher thought he could turn the tide of allergies…wait for it…by giving pregnant mothers probiotics! To test this theory, Dr. Ortiz-Andrellucchi gave expecting mothers 6 weeks of L. casei supplementation. This supplementation increased the milk’s concentration of T helper-1 and T helper-2 cells in the mother’s milk, compared to the placebo group. So this was a very good sign that the Lactobacillus casei was doing something.
Thanks for the great information. My doctor prescribed vyvanse for me 6 months ago. I am 40 years old and have never been medicated for ADHD. Both of my sisters have been medicated from a young age. I was having memory issues and spoke to my doctor about it. He explained that he knew that I had ADHD, like my sisters (we all have the same doctor) but he waited until I started complaining of symptoms before making any suggestions about treatment. It has been a huge relief. I had no idea how bad it was and, how much compensating I’ve always done. I just thought that the struggling that I was doing every day was normal for everyone. Now that I am on Vyvanse, I feel like for the first time in my life, I can relax and breathe and just be quiet. I can focus and actually read a document at work and process what I’m reading. My regret is that I wonder what I have missed out on in life. I wish that I would have been treated sooner. I have overcome all side effects except that I have very cold hands and feet off and on throughout the day. Especially at night. I’m also starting to experience numbness in some toes on a regular basis. I’m worried about circulatory problems. Has anyone else experienced these side effects?
