Antibiotics and your body

There are many types of antibiotics, generally they can be classified in six groups: Penicillin, Cephalosporin’s, Aminogluosprin’s, Tetracycline’s, Macrolid’s and Fluoroquinolones/quinolone’s.

Antibiotics are used for treating disorders like: Pneumonia, Acne, common colds, fungal and bacterial infections, ear and eye infection and dental, or oral infections. Antibiotics have little or no value in treating viral infection, gastroenteritis, stomach flu and Bronchitis.

Some of the side effects of antibiotics are: diarrhea and/or constipation, stomach pain, cramps, nausea, headaches, dry eyes, delayed urination, heart palpitation, difficile  (bacterial) infection, gas, belching, bloating, allergies and swelling of the lips, tongue and face. The use of antibiotics are listed as being high risk among people with liver diseases, and excess use can result in Kidney failure.

Antibiotics are designed to kill bad bacterial.  In the digestive tract, antibiotics kill not only the bad bacterial, but the good bacteria (flora) also.  In addition to killing bacteria, antibiotics also stops the stomach’s parietal cells from producing hydrochloric acid.  Nutrients consumed, are no longer sterilized, or converted, by the peptic enzymes.  When this occurs, allergens are allowed to dump into the small bowel, resulting in allergic reactions. More importantly, the absorption of the necessary vitamins, minerals and micro-nutrients is severely compromised. Nutrients are no longer broken down and converted, they are absorbed and stored as fats.

Many doctor recommend taking probiotic supplements along with antibiotics. Unfortunately, there is no value in doing this because the antibiotics kill all the ingested microorganisms. Long term use of antibiotics can severely compromise the immune system, making the body susceptible to many debilitating disorders.

After taking antibiotics, people should have a pH diagnostic test, pH capsule test, or pH Gastrogram.  This will allow the doctor to prescribe a natural medication that will bring the digestive process back into balance. For more information visit pHcapsule.com
