I found this blog while I was pregnant in 2008-2009. It has many, many interesting posts, but one stuck out to me in particular. It is a post about an alternative group b strep positive treatment plan. When a pregnant woman is found to be GBS+ in pregnancy, she is routinely given antibiotics in labor so that she doesn’t pass on the infection to her baby. If untreated, it can cause serious complication and even death, albeit rarely.
1. Twice a day, with breakfast and dinner:
Acidophilus or pro-biotic supplement: 4 billion cells per dose
Echinacea: Two 350 mg (each) capsules
Garlic: Two 580 mg (each) capsules
Vitamin C: 500-2000 mg (0.5-2 grams), with 200 mg bioflavonoids
Grapefruit seed extract: 15 drops
2. Once per day for 3 days, once per week thereafter: Homeopathic Streptococcynum 200X
3. Once per day (until finished): Herbal-C suppositories, by Bezweken
I wonder what my local midwives think of this plan?
