Antibiotics are a group of medications that are prescribed to treat bacterial infections. They are designed to eliminate harmful bacteria but may also disrupt the balance of good or beneficial bacteria that live in our digestive tract. This may lead to a “dysbiosis” or imbalance of the natural flora or beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract. Unless beneficial bacteria are re-introduced into the digestive tract other less beneficial organisms have the opportunity to grow and proliferate.
The lining of the digestive tract protects our body from what we eat, drink and breathe on a daily basis. Having the right balance of beneficial bacteria in the digestive tract plays an integral part in regulating our immune function at the level of the gut . Problems can frequently appear following antibiotic therapy due to toxins produced by unfavourable bacteria in the intestinal tract.
Besides the elimination of beneficial bacteria, long-term use of antibiotics may cause other essential nutrients such as B group Vitamins to be depleted. Taking a natural product designed to replace good bacteria and depleted nutrients alongside prescribed medication represents a positive interaction between pharmaceutical medication and natural supplements. Antibiotics therapy has been shown to deplete a range of B group Vitamins and Vitamin K and disrupt the balance of beneficial probiotic bacteria that inhabit the small and large intestine.

The way I am understanding is your aknisg why does our body become immune to some antibiotics, and thus making them stop working. My sons doctor told me it was because if you keep using the same antibiotic over and over again, that the bacteria, can start to resist it because it is used to it being present in the body. For example my 16 month ol son has MRSA, I work in a drug facility, so I am around the jailed population alot, and I guess I brought it home with me, since he is so young he often gets outbreaks, and they need to be treated with IV antibiotics, but the prolem with MRSA is that there are only 3 or 4 antibiotics that work on it, Clindamycin, vancomycin, those are the 2 they usually give my son. I would say he has had about 6 outbreaks since he was 6 months old, and its been very hard because at any time those medications can stop working, thats why his doctor tries alternating the two hoping that his body does not become immune to one of them, because then we woudl run out of options very quickly. I hope this was helpful. | 14 Sep 2012
