Last evening I took one capsule of each ( a first-time dose to check it out).  During the night I felt itchy around my belly button & this AM I saw that that area is very red & I have hives on my neck.  I feel very itchy.  Any thoughts?

My approach would be to stay off both until the rash disappears and then add them in one at a time.  My guess is that it's the Intrinsia causing the reaction.  Not because it's bad, but because it is very powerful.

Andrea...what does "DA" stand for?  I need to get more current on this abreviated language.  These letter abreviations are too modern for me...but I'm willing to learn.  

Victoria...Ok, I'll try that.

I've never had an unpleasant reaction to a NAP product and I use many so I was saddened & frustrated because I really want to be able to take these supps.

Thanks Andrea.  

Victoria...you got me to thinking about the Intrinsa being "very powerful" so I re-read the label and it does say to take it "with food"...but, when I took it, it was in the evening when I eat my "smallest" meal.  When I re-try taking it I will take it with my "biggest" meal of the day which for me is lunch.  I hope & pray that this will do the trick so I can tolerate it because as I said, I want so very much to be able to take it.  I'm still very itchy...I hope it calms down soon.  I'll report back after I try again.  Thanks for the good tip...I hope you've provided me with the solution.

I would also start out with a very small dose of the Intrinsia, maybe just one with a big meal, because it can have some strong cleansing effects.  

But at this point, why not take a little break from it and try the polyflora for a while.  Hopefully that will sit well with your body and actually fortify your intestinal health.  I have not heard of anyone having a reaction to polyflora, but I guess there could always be a first.  (I doubt it, though.)    I experience it to be very soothing and comforting and makes my body feel as if the work load has been lightened. Love that supplement!  

I was thinking also that maybe a good dose of Quercetin and bromelain for a couple of days might interrupt that rash reaction.

Victoria...thanks a million for your help...I will try all your suggestions.  I was even thinking that I'd break the capsule & try only half the capsule dose for the first few times until I see that it's well tolerated.  Wish me luck.

I still have the rash & was awakened by the itch a few times during the night.  I did resort to taking a Benedril capsule at 2 A.M. and finally fell asleep until 5:30 A.M. when I just stayed up. The rash seems a little less red this morning...I hope tonight will be better.  How long do you think it will take for my body to get rid of the Intrinsa so I can try again?

I love the smell of ghee!
taster status uniqueness again!!

grains and fruits should be minimal when treating a candida condition in the first place.

I don't know for sure, Rex.  I'm sorry you're suffering!

I think you're just going to have to be patient and not try and rush anything right now.  Take some deep, slow breaths and go for a walk, or do something else that you can just enjoy.  Don't worry.  This too shall pass.  

You could always call and talk with the NAP people at the BTD store.  Tell them what happened and see if they have heard of Intrinsia causing that reaction.  They might have some ideas for you.  Or, I suppose there is the chance that something else caused this reaction.

Raquel...thanks...As soon as I'm back to normal, I will start with the Polyflora and if that works out ok, I'll try the Intrinsa again.  I spoke to Lynn at NAP & she suggested that I break open the capsule & actually mix it in with my food or even blended into a nice thick smoothie.  Lola's idea is good too, to sprinkle it on a salad.  I'm still itchy...I'm trying to resist the urge to scratch.

When you have candida, you should minimize grains and fruits as well as any foods that feed the yeast, as Lola said.  This does not mean to avoid the anti candida supplements.

Thanks Victoria...NAP pretty much gave me the same advise that you just gave me.  Lynn said that because we are all individuals (which I accept) it could take a week or two or I could feel relief within 24-48 hours.  I'm hoping for the quicker healing....itch, itch, itch...oh, this is very uncomfortable!  I just hope for an unbroken night of sleep tonight...I'm so tired today, after last night, of getting up so many times.

I also agree with Victoria.  Quercetin is awesome, I can't go without it.

I had a digestive reaction to Intrinsa for quite a while, but now my body loves it.  Getting candida out can be very uncomfortable, so if you think that is the issue, you may want to address candida with a few other approaches first, and work your way into it.

Could also be an allergy to an ingredient in the polyflora (or the Intrinsa, though it has fewer ingredients).  I'm allergic to rosemary, so I run into that pretty often in supplements. I'm allergic to polyvite O; I don't remember if it has rosemary in it, but I just take the genotype multivitamin instead.  I still have some trouble with Histonia, although I think it is good for me and I just need to work into it gradually and figure out the best time to take it.

guidelines are guidelines, but not specific for determined health issues......those need to be addressed by each individual, while following their plan and healing consequently.

***************************************
Raquel,
You can certainly take Intrinsia.  It is not just for Candida issues, but all gut healing needs.  It heals the lining of the intestines and creates a healthy environment there.

If you don't have a lot of gut problems, you could just eat ghee.

Raquel...just be sure to take the Intrinsa "with food" as directed.  Don't make the same mistake that I did, to take it on a relatively empty stomach...I'm still itchy...not a great feeling at all.  I'm anxious to feel normal again so I can give it another try...this time "with food".   I can see the redness getting more dull but it's still there & is still quite itchy.  I had to get up last night at 2:00 A.M. to take a Benedril...finally did get some sleep...thank goodness.

Intrinsia really helped take care of my IBS and leaky gut.

Rex, do you have any Emu oil?  I love that stuff for any and all skin issues, and I would try it on your type of rash.
