I have read a lot on this forum in recent months and decided to start taking Threelac. I have been skeptical of the product and have had concerns because it isn't available at reputable stores such as CVS, Walgreens, Vitamin Shoppe or even Walmart! The fact that this product is only available on the internet also greatly concerned my husband. However, I kinda desperately over looked caution and ordered it anyway. After taking 1/2 to 1 packet a day for about 15-20 days, I developed a sickening case of heartburn during the hours after taking the product. This happened for 2 days in a row and it was borderline nauseating. I stopped taking the product immediately!Since I have no history of severe or even moderate heartburn, it was a definite red flag to me. I think heartburn is a warning sign and it shouldn't be overlooked. I'm Thankful that I didn't take it for any longer than I did. I wanted to respectfully leave this feedback about my experience. Best of luck to everyone here.

I also had to stop taking Threelac. I noticed from the start that it imediatly brought back my symptoms, I was told it's just the die off it means its working. I continued for another week. I noticed I would start itching within a half hour, to the point of leaving a blood rash, if I started to sweat at all it would sting.  I also had my hotflashes under control and after taking that the hotflashes got worse and I was getting cold flashes. I don't which ones are worse.

I'm glad that it works for a lot of you, I'm sorry it didn't work for me.

Threelac is the one thing that is safe and will help everyone. It is the most natural product that contains organisms that are already in our bodies. If I was to say one product that has helped me the most it is threelac, I was getting heart pains before I took threelac and now they have gone and so has a lot of my symptoms. If you are feeling bad from threelac its bcoz it's removing all the toxins from you body or maybe u just happened to catch a cold at the same time as you took it. Try taking less but dont give up on the one thing your body needs at this time.

To say that one product will help everyone is false. While Threelac may have helped you u_can_do_it, it might not do anything for others. To advise someone to continue taking a product that is clearly causing side effects is dangerous.

I'm afraid you are mistaken. I'm not telling everyone to take drugs. I'm simply telling them that prescription anti fungals cured my Candida infection. If they want to try the same treatment then that's really up to them. I believe people have the right to choose.

I only made my comment to your response because you said that Threelac will help everyone. No singular product can help 100% of the people, including prescription anti fungals. Also, while heartburn is not considered a severe side effect, you worded your response to notsosure poorly. You could have said something like "There is a possibility of side effects from taking Threelac. Generally mild heartburn is not a severe side effect, but if it persists or gets worse, you should consult with your doctor or pharmacist before continuing the treatment."

If Threelac worked for you then that's great! By all means share your experience. Again, just realize that it might not work for some people such as notsosure.

Cheers!

I'm sorry, I also had no colds, was not sick.

Just because something is all natural doesn't mean there can't be a reaction. I'm glad Threelac has helped so many people, I wish I would have been one of them, I just can not take something that continues to give me bad reactions.

I'd feel pretty confident that any bad reactions at the beginning of the process were due to die-off.

After dealing with over 25,000 people I've heard it all...

The thing that needs to be understood about die-off, is that it is an allergic reaction– and many times it's more than one.

Keep in mind that candida related issues are allergic reactions within the body...

The fungus eats sugars, it poops out toxins and we have allergic reactions to the the toxins.

It's nothing more complicated than that.

Then when you introduce some kind of anti-candida component to the mix, be it the strict diet, prescription anti-fungals or Threelac, all of a sudden you have this giant "yeast kill" going on.

As the fungus perishes, it releases what toxins are stored within its body.

All of a sudden our bodies are flooded with more toxins than normal.

Consequently our issues can become worse– OR we can get entirely new issues that we've never experienced before.

Now, does everyone go experience die-off?

Nope.  Only about 40% or so, seem to.  Many times people are suffering so much that a little extra allergic reaction just isn't noticeable.

What can one do to minimize die-off?

Several things actually...

1. Start slowly.  In the case of Threelac we suggest 1 packet per day for the first week. 

For some folks even 1 packet a day is too much.  We then suggest trying a 1/2 packet per day (put the rest in a sealed bag).  If that's too much do 1/4 of a packet per day.

I've had a couple people report that they had to start out with an 1/8th of a packet per day.  They did that for a week, then did a 1/4 of a packet per day for another week.  They continually moved up slowly from there.

2. Drink lots of water.  The object is to get the toxins out of the body as quickly as possible.

3. Increase your fiber intake.  See #2.

4. Take activated charcoal or bentonite clay.  These are excellent "toxin absorbers" and can make the die-off process downright pleasant.


Finally I've had people say that they've tried different anti-candida products and some produced die-off in their bodies and some didn't.

Remember that some products just seem to be much more efficient at this stuff than other products.

Again, even if someone starts to experience a hard die-off, things can be done to make the process much more palatable.

Outright quitting is probably not a good option however.  Why?  Because you lose what momentum you've gained.

Threelac did not work for me either... I personally feel it is a money making gimmick!

Hi,  I am new to this forum.

I was diagnosed with Candida Albicans (systemic infection) over three years ago. 

Since then, I have tried numerous natural anti fungals, strong probiotics, enzymes, and a whole host of other supplements. I have also followed anti candida diet. Although some of the symptoms subsided a little, there was no real change.

I then tried threelac for seven months. I built up to it gradually, as recommended. Altogether, I must have gone through about 14 boxes.  I also made sure I followed strict anti candida protocol. In my experience, what a complete waste of time and money! I really wanted to believe in this product. I must admit marketing has been very good. They almost sound genuine and sincere..but in hindsight they are obviously selling a product. No matter how cleverly disguised via a forum.  Based on my own experiences with Threelac, I am finding the administrators comments here very frustrating.  Mind you, its hardly unbiased. 

Also, so far, because of all the negative hype from these so called holistic practitioners (cowboy merchants more like) I have been reluctant to try prescription anti fungals.  That is about to change. Imagine my suprise when I rang the founder member of the Candida Society in UK recently and she finally admitted that she too had taken prescription anti fungals to initially help her eliminate Candida. I honestly feel if she hadn't done so she would still be going round in frustrating circles like most of us here. Yet through all their newsletters they seemed to be focused on the 'natural' alternatives, as if somehow they were superior.  From experience, I now stand corrected. I dont feel that in themselves, they are.

There are one or two members here, who I now feel make sense to me and the approach I now wish to follow. A year ago, I might have thought differently. But experience has proven otherwise.

I just wanted to have my rant against the OTT promotion of Threelac. In my opinion, it's not been at all effective or at least not for deep systemic Candida.

dv.jorge  and KeepTrying 10, I am reading thru your threads as you guys now seem to make better sense. I will be in touch for some further help and guidance, once I've gleaned what I can here.

Lets hope this gets posted!

well u only took it for seven months, if you had very very very deep candida it would take years on three lac to get rid of it. It solved my systemic candida 90% so far, cured my breathing problem, cleared my skin, sorted my peeing problem, and gave me a sense of well being. You shouldnt be taking that much in seven months, and you have the wrong attitude, you have to be positive with candida and be patient Or you will create more health problems. Three lac RULES!!!! It saved my life, saved me from rotting away as a fungus reject and Im able to live my life with it all behind me and I did it in a healthy way!:)  It took me 12 - 18 months to achieve the above. Having said that candida can overgrow to an unlimited amount so if your truely very very very very overgrown like a jUNGLe, yes ur in trouble and it would take years with threelac and it wouldnt be strong enough to break it all down.

R u on some kind of commission here? 

To be honest I have found your comments here, the most unhelpful, least knowledgable and contradictory. You rant on about threelac and yet on one thread you were asking someone for alternative advice?!   I feel I could have taken Threelac for seven years without it making any difference. I am awaiting Lab test results and I am pretty certain they will prove what my symptoms are still telling me.

If Threelac only helps mild cases of Candida, then it really isn't all that. And should be promoted as such. Of course my symptoms subsided a little initially, but then they would due to following anti candida protocol and in my opinion nothing to do with Threelac. The powder might as well have been hoover dust. Also, the administrator here is not as subtle as he likes to think he is!

I'm sorry if you are indeed genuinely trying to help. And if your experiences with Threelac have been better. Mine certainly haven't!  I more than anyone wanted to believe in this 'wonder' product, which is why I plugged away as long as I did. A complete waste of time and effort. How dare they take advantage of our misery and desperation!

of course I was looking for alternative advise, Im open minded and i said threelac takes a long time to work, I had breathing problems so of course Im going to ask for faster advice if I cant breath!!!!!!! And I didnt say threelac only helps mild cases, your just saying bcoz u cant interpret my message in an intelligent manor and u want to put an argument across, u can hardly call a breathing problem, whole body skin condition and peeing problem is mild. Threelac can help a serious systemic condition like mine but if you are dieing from overgrowth, if your kidneys are completely white and ur brain is fried like and egg with candida it wont help. It will help 99.999999% of people. You might not even have candida, and you need to find a forum for people with an attitude problem and argue with them bcoz this forum is for helping people and being nice about it. Dont bother with ur test results, take it that you tried a known cure and it didnt work therefore u dont have candida. Threelac is not promoted to help candida it says nothing about it on the packet. Ive almost cured my candida problem and Ive spent weeks, months reading about it every day, Ive lived it, seen the results, found the answers, so that makes me an expert and more knowledgeable than you! Who cant even figure out if you got it and from that private message u sent me, you wanted to know which way the box is up :D

What private message I sent you? You're the last person I would have contacted here. I wouldnt waste my time!!


'therefore u dont have candida' . How dare you? So you've suddenly become an expert and know more than medical scientific labs?

FYO I had several independent lab tests via Biolab and CNS confirming I had high levels of Candida Albicans. The results although independent (because I was sick of all the quakery out there and here it seems) came back at exactly the same diagnostic levels. I did not pursue an anti candida diet for the fun of it

'!if your kidneys are completely white and ur brain is fried like and egg with candida it wont help. It will help 99.999999% of people.' Just where are you getting your crazy 'facts'?! from?  


You really are one silly, misinformed woman. It appears you spend a vast amount of time here to feed your own needy ego. I wouldnt mind but there are people here who are in the same desperate situation as me and need real proven intelligent help. Not so called bizarre 'facts' that dont stand up to any scrutiny. Go waste some one elses time. You would be dangerous. If you were intelligent.

Hey Guys,

There is nothing in this world that end with an intestinal fungal overgrowth with a simple treatment. I want to say Threelac has helped me and some  of  my family members too. I don't sell it, neither I get any benefit speaking well about it but only telling my own opinion. Bacillus Subtilis, which is one of the Threelac's ingredient, is a very well studied benefical bacteria. It is probably  the best anti-pathogenic bacteria discovered so far.

I can write too much about this syndrome here... Oh god, it has been hard for me !

I visit this forum time to time but have been an active member in Curezone for the last 3 years.  If some of you want to read and explore all the possible routes to treat candida related complex, you can visit curezone candida forum. You will find many people who have dedicated all their efforts to end with this syndrome. I am one of them and have been in contact with those people by email, phone and the forum itself.

                     Good Luck,

                                                Jorge.

Hi jorge,

Thanks for your comments.  I have been meaning to contact you for your input and advice. Although I am somewhat confused.  You extol the virtues of threelac, which I too tried with no success.

Yet then you mention the following treatment protocol which relies mainly on prescription anti fungals?!

So what exactly has been your treatment programme? I certainly wont be wasting time and money with threelac again, but has the rest of the protocol that you have described below, worked for you.

Your advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Ghzala

Nystatin Powder 750 000 units 3 t/ a day plus Threelac the first three months. Then add Itraconazole 200mg tablets plus Terbinafine 250 mg tablets 1 a/day for 60 more days. The combination of any triazoles plus Lamisil become fungicidal. After that, to continue with Nystatin powder for 3 more months. A low glycemic index carbohydrate diet plus Kefir and Prebiotics. L Glutamine, Whey Protein and Colostrum to heal the leaky gut.  Stress reduction is a must to restore the blood flow to the intestinal lining and to recover the IGA function in the gut.   Last edited on Fri Jul 9th, 2010 12:23 am by dv.jorge

I have followed many treatments without success. I have used the natural and the Rx way several times. Think that I am looking for  ending with it but not manage it. You can get better using many ways but the key is to eliminate it totally.

My last treatment was a Rx drug combination. Fluconazol, Lamisil, Nystatin Powder, Amp B capsules, Lufenuron, SF-722, and Lactoferrin. All of them taken together for two straight months. I also did a HPI to gain new friendly flora from my dauther. (fecal transplant) I forgot, I get immune therapy every 15 days.

I am still in the battle.!!

No.

Not a scam.

The problem that you're seeing is that many come here looking for answers to something that doesn't seem to have clear answers.

Quite often people do come back and describe how they "licked" their issues.  The problem is that that one person's circumstances may not be the same as another.  The result being they can be very passionate about how they solves their problems without realizing that their method may not be the best for everyone.

You want some advice?

Here's some, start some sort of anti-candida program that combines a smart diet with the right dietary supplements, give it 3 months and see what the results are.

There are several good quality supplements out there that you can consider.
