Recently, I had to prescribe antibiotics to my mother for a infection she had in her jaw. After this course of medication, she was interested in building back the good bacteria in her system.
Sometimes bad bacteria can overwhelm your body, and antibiotics are prescribed by a doctor out of necessity. When a doctor prescribes antibiotics, finish them exactly as prescribed. It is especially important to do this after you start feeling better.
During and after your course of antibiotics, there are things you can do to start rebuilding the good, helpful bacteria that is found in healthy intestines.
That’s what the video above is all about. Here are some of notes to accompany specific things I mention in the video above:
- ‘Eat Dirt‘ by Dr. Josh Axe
- ‘Clean‘ and ‘Clean Gut‘ by Alejandro Junger
- ‘Food Forensics’ by Michael Allen Adams
- ‘Hashimoto’s Protocol’ by Izabella Wentz
Here’s an overview of some foods and supplements one can take during and after the antibiotics in order to build these helpful bacteria back up:
- Activia and yogurts have some
- Kombucha tea
- Goat’s milk kefur
- Fermented foods (saurkraut, kimchee, pickled vegetables)
- El glutamine
- Milk thistle
- Collagen (collagen powder)
- Bone broth
