Sensory Integration Therapy (Overview)

Sensory integration therapy is based on the idea that senses such as sight, sound, touch, spatial awareness, and gravity help to guide development. When there is a disorder of sensory integration, someone trained in sensory integration therapy, such as an occupational therapist, will provide intense sensory inputs to the various systems using various tools and techniques. This treatment is commonly used in autism spectrum disorders, and has strong supporters and detractors. The core of proven autism treatment includes behavioral and educational interventions, but sensory integration therapy may be a useful supplement to these.

Which probiotic strain is best for post antibiotic (flagyl-cipro) therapy of sibo. Also highly lactose intol. Sibo symptoms returned very quickly.

Which probiotic strain is best for post antibiotic (flagyl-cipro) therapy of sibo. Also highly lactose intol. Sibo symptoms returned very quickly.

Probiotics: There are several high potency probiotics available, such as klaire complete, and orthobiotic, two of my favorites. A good post antibiotic restorative probiotic should have at least 4 strains of acidophillus and bifido bacteris, and a friendly competitor for candida, like florastor. Ortho biotic has all of those in one supplement. The other thing to look for is billions of cfu (cocloies). ...Read more

My daughter is 8 weeks old and she is colicky. does biogaia treatment help and does it have any side effects or is it just probiotics.

Probiotics: The product is probiotics and is expensive. Many products have been used to treat colic but it seems like time or maturation of the bowel is the cure. Have your baby checked to make sure you are not dealing with any other problem, such as reflux. Look at the website purplecrying.info All the best. ...Read more

Can I take a probiotic to stop a yeast infection? If not, what's the best OTC treatment? Been on antibiotics for 2 weeks & I think that caused it.

Can I take a probiotic to stop a yeast infection? If not, what's the best OTC treatment? Been on antibiotics for 2 weeks & I think that caused it.

Probiotic won't work: If you have had vaginal yeast and have the same symptoms now, you probably can safely treat yourself. A probiotic probably won't work; you need an anti-yeast drug. Look for a product whose active ingredient ends in "azole" (Monistat®, Terazol®, Gyne-Lotrimin® and others). But if in doubt, get advice from the doc that prescribed the antibiotic. If you self treat, call doc if no better in 2-3 days. ...Read more
