Testimonial - Cleared
Group B Strep naturally!!! We did it! All thanks to our belief in YLEO's!!!
I'm expecting my 3rd child and have had a picture-perfect pregnancy, however at 37 weeks I tested positive for Group B Strep. This was a first for me and when I learned about the medical protocol (penicllin) I knew that I would instead do anything possible to treat it naturally. Typically they test women so close to their due date that they don't have a chance to clear it up and re-test before baby arrives, so regardless, mom is put on a min. of 4 hours of intravenously delivered anti-biotics (anti-life) while in labor.
Midwives and doctors are likely to tell you that Group B Strep can kill your baby. Yes, you heard me. They put the fear of God in you that if you don’t treat Group B Strep with their exact protocol you will be causing extreme danger to your little one and it will probably kill them. If you test positive for Group B Strep, your care provider will recommend or demand that you be on antibiotics when you start labor as to ‘protect’ the baby from contracting GBS during delivery.
We all know that antibiotics kill all bacteria - good and bad - in your system and likely to kill the same in your baby. When given antibiotics for any reason during labor, the chances of your baby developing thrush (yeast infection) is great. Also, since the good bacteria gets killed too, you now know longer have a defense system working in your favor to protect you from all the other germs, bacteria and viruses you will be exposed to in the hospital. Antibiotics also lead to the problems of ‘super bugs’ (very serious) which are resistant to normal strength antibiotics. One intervention leads to potentially more need for intervention and concern.
In 3 weeks I cleared up the GBS naturally, using only YL products. Here's what I did starting the day I was diagnosed GBS positive:
- took Super C up to every 4 waking-hours
- continued with Core Supplements, alternating with Master Hers
- took 1-3 Inner Defense daily (I think this was key! You can take up to 5 capsules daily)
- used peri-bottle with warm water and a drop of tea tree oil to cleanse after every bowel movement
- took 1-2 Life 5 probiotics before bed every night (included in Core Supplements)
- drank 1 - 3 oz. of NingXia Red daily
Essential oils used:
- applied Thieves (3 drops) on the soles of each foot morning and night
- applied Valor (5 drops) along the spine, morning and night
I'm now at 40 weeks and today my midwife was delighted to let me know I now show a 0% chance of any GBS colonization and I will not have to start the antibiotics when I go into labor. The above protocol worked in about 2 weeks to clear the GBS!!!!
