hey there dave, nope can't say i've noticed anything from taking the acidophilus except relatively steady improvement.
when i first took the oregano you could say that was some die-off, but it just made my guts loud and i had to dash for the bathroom a couple of times. after that initial reaction, which i found more funny than anything and which lasted less than a day, i wasn't noticing that the oregano was doing anything in particularly shocking any more so i stopped using it and went back to the usual vitamins.
i think i have heard some descriptions of feeling low from ppl on the antibiotic protocol which in those cases could have been die-off reactions. probably not all on the protocol have a huge overgrowth to battle with.
i have just taken a bit more oregano internally - maybe it's built back up since i stopped before ... since i still have my cutaneous yeast rash i figured it can't hurt to address it inside, if it's present outside.
i put oregano oil on the rash last night, and vaseline today, and it was still unhappy so i just opened up one of my acidophilus capsules and put the powder right on the rash. we'll see how that goes.
other than that, where i got the oregano oil was a local health food store. and i learned about it at a local nutrition specialty store. don't think they would necessarily have it in your everyday pharmacy. the brand i got is called oreganol. http://www.p-73.com/oreganolp73.htm
ahh i can't look at that link now i have to get off this site and stay on task for my departure! lol!
