Hundreds of antibiotics have become available since the discovery of penicillin. However, their overuse has contributed to drug-resistant bacteria that no longer respond to treatment.
While antibiotics are a worthwhile and necessary course of treatment in many cases, they can produce unwanted side effects.
Antibiotics not only kill bad bacteria, but they also kill off good gut bacteria. The gut microbiome affects overall health and inflammation. Drug-induced diarrhea may result from antibiotics. Take a probiotic two hours from your antibiotic doses. Eat fermented food to support a healthy gut.
Reducing or eliminating your need for medications could benefit your overall health and wellness. Dietary and lifestyle changes can help harness the body’s natural healing to recover from chronic diseases.
Gut bacteria plays an important role in health. You have to eat to support healthy gut bacteria and reduce inflammation. Aiding your gut microbiome can improve some of the symptoms that negatively impact your livelihood.
