Antibiotics are Doing More Harm than Good by morgan | May 12, 2019 | Uncategorized Usually, when people get hit with some sort of bacterial or viral infection, they seek help from a doctor. The end result of a doctors visit is usually a prescription for antibiotics. Antibiotics are the most commonly prescribed medication for bacterial and viral infections, but as we begin to learn more about them and realise how they affect us in the long run. We are beginning to learn just how much of a negative impact that they have on our health. Studies have shown that one of the leading causes of liver injury is due to the use of antibiotics. New research tells us that in many cases the use of antibiotics is pointless. Many cases of the flu and common cold result in the prescription of antibiotics which is absolutely unnecessary when you can simply let it run its course. The negative impacts that antibiotics have on your health are related to your gut. Antibiotics tend to cause chaos and ruin trillions of the beneficial bacteria that live in your gut. It is interesting to note that one week’s course of antibiotics can compromise the macrobiotic makeup in your gut for up to a year. This is because our gut has its own ecosystem so to speak. it is home to over 100 trillion microorganisms which includes 400 species of bacteria. The problem with antibiotics is that they can’t seem to tell the difference between the good and the bad bacteria. They can’t tell which bacteria does or doesn’t belong in the gut so instead, they go in with full force and destroy everything that gets in their way. When the antibiotics attack the bacteria, they ruin the microbes that are responsible for digestion, metabolism, immunity and mental health. The majority of our immune system is located in the gut, as is 90% of the production of our neurotransmitters. Maintaining a well-balanced level of bacteria and other microorganisms in our gut are crucial to stopping inflammation. When the numbers of good bacteria begin to fall, it leaves you vulnerable to yeast infections, such as Candida. When the yeast starts to grow, it can damage the lining of your intestinal walls leading to a health issue called leaky gut. Studies have shown that compromises made to the gut by excessive use of antibiotics in early life may even lead to weight gain. Furthermore, the overuse and excessive use of antibiotics can lead to tolerance and they may not be as effective when you need them most.
