Hello Dr. Nemechek
My daughter 4 year old daughter is on Nemechek protocol for a month now and is doing great. We have seen huge improvements. However she is really constipated for days. It is really painful for all of us. What else can I give her besides miralax and milk magnesia?
Thank you kindly
There seems to be a Nordic Natural product of DHA called ProDHA that has 1000 mgs of DHA per capsule. It is strawberry flavored. Any reason not to use this? It seems like a great alternative as it would only require 3 capsules versus 6 of NOW DHA to get 3000 mg. I know some have had difficulty with the strawberry additive with the liquid version for kids, but if no problem with this, I expect it is approved? Just confirming as it has not been mentioned anywhere that I have seen. Thank you.
We had soome reports in the past of children seemingly having a regression when fish oil had strawberry flavoring so for thaat reason I recommend avoiding strawberry flavored Nordic products
Hi Dr. Nemechek My daughter is on your protocol already a month. Right now she is on inulin 1/8 tsp and 1 tbsp evoo. I had her on the fish oil for the first couple of weeks but she seemed more agressive so I decided to wait a little with the fish oil and just continue with evoo and inulin to heal the gut first. I am using all the supplements that are recommended in your book. My daughter 4.4 years old started waking up at least 4 -5 times at night the first two weeks of the protocol. But… Read more »
If the gut is balanced, fish oil does not make children aggressive.
Using the protocol with out fish oil will greatly limit recovery
Thank you very much. I will start with fish oil again.
Dear Dr. Nemecheck, My son is 2 years and 8 months old. He was diagnosed with autism and pica. We started the protocol around the end of June and about two to three weeks into the protocol my son started to make a lot more verbal noises and more eye contact. However after about three weeks he stopped doing this and went back to the way he was before. What changes do we need to make? I’m giving him the following doses daily: – Now Inulin – 1/4 tsp – NN ProOmega (2840 mg) – 1 ml – Certified evoo… Read more »
I would look for other reasons why things might seem worse again
Dr Nemechek, My son tested positive for FRAT antibodies ( high positive ). One of the treatment is leucovorin at 1-2 mg/kg/say. Can we add leukovorin to our regimen while continuing with the protocol ? Reason I ask is because we have him on no supplements while on the protocol.
Yes, leucovorin is allowed under this circumstance
Plz I need to know my child is covering his ears after starting the protocol???
Might be a sign of anxiety from too much inulin.
Good evening Dr. Nemechek
My son is on your protocol two weeks and everything is going great so far. His attention is better now. He is not angry like before. He is following directions great. However, I have noticed that he has improved in many things but he is talking less now. He used to say couple words here and there mostly repeating after me. But now he is not saying almost anything. Is that normal or do I need to change something? Thank you
Don’t worry, this is temporary and he’ll do fine with more time.
Hi doctor Nemechek, my son is 3 and has been on protocol for ten months. he has hit a plateau for this past three months. I have tried to raise ultimate omega from 1ml to 2ml. when I do this he is great for a week or so and then sensory issues go into overdrive. things that were never an issue really bother him, like food textures, clothes, teeth grinding. he is terrified of everything. then hen I bring it back down to 1ml all these sensory issues go away. I’ve tried upping it to 1.25ml and still has reaction… Read more »
If all things have stopped, consider the use of rifaximin since he may of developed inulin failure.
If some aspects continue to improve but others see to of halted, then he needs vagus nerve stimulation.
Also I forgot to say in my previous question.. This book is the best I have ever found. No therapy has worked this well. I see huge difference in my daughter and she has been on this protocol for only 1 week. I can’t thank you enough Dr. Nemechek you saved my daughter. Thank you so much!
You are very, very welcome.
Hello Dr. Nemechek how much omega 3 in ml exactly can my 4 year old daughter use daily and is she allowed to continue to use Mineral oil laxative Kondremul?
You really need to take some time and read the protocol.
If you do not invest in learning more, you may miss the chance at helping your daughter to completely recover.
Hi Dr. Nemechek. I have your book in download and paperback form (read it) and am a member of the VIP Nemechek Facebook group. Thank you for all you do for our kiddos. My daughter (17 years old, 120 lbs) is Down Syndrome and Autistic. We started her on your protocol November 2018 (1 tbsp certified olive oil, 2 tsps Inulin, 4 tablets of “NOW” DHA-500 fish oil-eventually increasing to 6 tablets daily). We cook with certified olive oil and limit other unacceptable oils. We saw improvement in quality of her speech, eye contact, independence. We discontinue the protocol due… Read more »
I would start at the lower range listed in the book and split the doses of oils.
Thank you for the valuable information and your time. You are loved world-wide!!
Hello Dr. Nemechek, do you consider Manuka Honey a supplement or is it okay to use while on the protocol? Thank you!
Plain honey from Manuka or anywhere else is fine.
Hi, Dr. Nemecheck! I’ve just finished reading your book and am so excited to get our family started on your protocol. My questions are about whether or not the following are okay: Siberian Pine Nut Oil (husband currently uses for a stomach ulcer), soy lecithin (in some processed foods), and fermented foods (sourdough breads, kombucha, water kefir). Many thanks for your expertise and for your helping so many people!!!!!
You need to re-read the protocol.
Hello Dr, We have being doing protocol since 3 months for my 6 yr old son with genetic mutation n i.e micordeletion, He has being doing ok and we have noticed he started developing white patches on his face , we are currently at following dosage
– 1.5 ml ultimate omega (fish oil)
– 7.5 ml EVOO

Alos, wanted to check if you have any opinion on using NRF2 (Protandin), NRF1 (synergizer) and AXIO supplements?
Read my book and you’ll understand how I feel about these extra supplements
Hey Doctor. My son is 3,5 yearswith developmental delay. I bought your book I start the protocol in my son in February. 1/8 inulin ,olive oil in food and fish oil 1ml. I increase the fish oil in 2 ml a month ago.my son is more aggressive,he is crying very easy and he doesn’t have much appetite.he was very fussy and he is. His speech has improved amazingly. His understanding is 100%.he learned to play a song on the keyboard. You said in the book that if there is a trauma and developmental delay may it’s normal to have aggressive… Read more »
With all this improvement I wouldn’t change a thing.
Sit tight and wait for him to recover out of this
Thank you so much.
Appreciate you so much. My husband of 38 had a really bad flare of Ulcerative Colitis in the past year. He also has kidney disease (Minimal ChAnge Disease) that he is taking low doses of prednisone for. His kidney function is currently good. The IBS, terrible at the moment. He’s lost like 50 pounds. He started on your protocol with oils for a month and worked his way up to full dose of oils, and a week ago finished Rifamaxin. A day into the Rifamaxin he developed a staph infection with boils all over his body, scalp and face. We… Read more »
It’s hard to say if it’s directly related but there is evidence that when you rebalance the gut, you are also rebalancing the the blend of bacteria in the mouth, axilla (arm pit), palms, vagina and pores of the face.

Just be patient and give him more time to recovery out of this
Hi Dr. Nemechek,
Is it ok to use nemechek protocol with my daughter with developmental delays? How can I start? She is 5 years old. How many doses of inulin, fish oil and olive oil should I use?
I suggest you read my book. It will answer all the questions you have.
Your daughter deserves that you do the protocol exactly as written and not done in a secondhand fashion.
Greetings Doctor Nemechek,
Is it okay to use California ranch oil now as they’ve lost the certification ? Please let me know the alternate, if we should not use it.
I no longer recommend California Olive Ranch since their main brand of EVOO is no longer certified.
Thanks Doctor. Could you please suggest an alternate EVOO brand. There are a lot many on the COOC site and it is hard to choose one and your recommednation is much appreciated.
They are generally all of high quality. Just stick with COOC-certified.
Dear Dr. Nemechek, some of my friends had fantastic results using your protocol even for a short period. I’m also about to start it with my 2 years old son. But I’m concerned a bit about latest reviews of Nordic Natural FO quality issues. Me myself contacted NN to ensure their third party tests results as mercury issue is the most important for me. And I got an unpleasant result: their on-line certificates are absolutely not reliable as you can see that all figures are absolutely the same for different certificates ( in my opinion it’s strange, ’cause I ‘ve… Read more »
Why are you over thinking this? You admit that many children are doing well using Nordic Naturals.
Use the recommended brands and help your child recover.
