Antibiotics can help us combat bacterial disease when truly needed. Unfortunately, their use also comes with a COST, as they lower ALL bacteria – both good and bad, indiscriminately.
If the illness is viral, taking antibiotics doesn’t help the illness, but can lower our immunity. This can set us up for future illnesses, unless we help rebuild our gut flora and restore our immunity.
Most of us were not passed down enough beneficial bacteria (good gut flora) from the babyhood because we are in our 3rd or 4th generation of antibiotic use. There was a generational lowering as each group used them. There was also a lack of nursing during the 1950’s-1960’s, which reduced the transfer of beneficial bacteria, too.*
Learn what bacterium and yeast tend to overgrow during antibiotic treatment. You can learn how to protect yourself from them taking over both during and after antibiotic treatment/course through the use of:
• Probiotics, how to take them during antibiotic use, how to choose a good mixture, don’t be scammed by health food companies
• Fermented Foods and where to find some good recipes, and more.
The video talks about the fermented food recipes that are found in these books:
• Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig
• Alex Lewin’s Real Food Fermentation: Preserving Whole Fresh Food with Live Cultures in Your Home Kitchen
• Dr. McBride’s Gut and Psychology Syndrome (GAPS)
I hope this information will help educate you, and help you avoid health problems like dysbiosis (unbalanced gut flora), SIBO (Small Intestine Bowel Overgrowth), leaky gut (which can lead to food allergies), lowered immunity, and lack of beneficial bacteria.
