How to Reverse the Negative Effects of Antibiotics

I do not have an issues with taking antibiotics with they are needed; antibiotics save lives. What I have an issue with is the overuse of antibiotics and the inattention to healing the gut after the use of them. Research shows probiotics undo the damage done by antibiotics......... so simple and inexpensive yet how often has your doctor suggested you take them along with the antibiotics that are handed out so readily?

Gut Bacteria: Physical and Mental Health

Your gastrointestinal or GI tract is the engine for your entire body. To survive, your cells extract nutrients from the food you eat for energy, as well as other essential matter such as oxygen, within your GI tract. It’s an extraordinary and complex 30-foot system that starts with your mouth and ends with the anus. Bloating, gas, and other stomach ailments are typical symptoms – which signal that your digestive system is disturbed. However, new research is finding that bad stomach bacteria triggers much more.

Biotics on the Microbiome

Studies are showing more and more that the gut microbiome have a profound effect on optimal health. The microbiome makes up 4-5 pounds of the human body. For every human cell, we have 10 in the microbiome. This effects how our immune system works, pain levels, energy levels, and how we sleep and and think.

Our Gut Microbiome

The human gut microbiota has become the subject of extensive research in recent years and our knowledge of the resident species and their potential functional capacity is rapidly growing. Our gut harbours a complex community of over 100 trillion microbial cells which influence human physiology, metabolism, nutrition and immune function while disruption to the gut microbiota has been linked with gastrointestinal conditions such as inflammatory bowel disease and obesity. Here, we review the many significant recent studies that have centred on further enhancing our understanding of the complexity of intestinal communities as well as their genetic and metabolic potential. These have provided important information with respect to what constitutes a ‘healthy gut microbiota’ while furthering our understanding of the role of gut microbes in intestinal diseases. We also highlight recently developed genomic and other tools that are used to study the gut microbiome and, finally, we consider the manipulation of the gut microbiota as a potential therapeutic option to treat chronic gastrointestinal and other chronic disease.

Indigestion and the Benefits of Apple Cider Vinegar

Apple cider vinegar can help to support digestion by providing enzymes and certain acids. The enzymes help support those who do not produce enough enzymes on their own, an all too common issue in this modern day. Take some apple cider vinegar in water 15 minutes prior to meals to help get your digestive juices going (1 Tbsp. in a few ounces of water). This can help to prevent indigestion, gas or bloating. If you find you are already suffering from any of those complaints, sipping on a few ounces of water with 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar can help. The healthy acids found in ACV, can also support digestion by controlling the growth of unwanted bacteria and yeasts in the stomach and body. Many people today lack digestive enzymes and appropriate stomach acid and need all the digestive help they can get. I highly recommend adding apple cider vinegar to your daily routine if you regularly suffer from digestive complaints. For example, sipping on apple cider vinegar is a much better option than taking any kind of acid blocker (the stomach is actually an acid making machine, suppressing the acid is actually going to cause long term damage).
