What You Need To Know About Gut Microbiome
- posted: Jun. 03, 2021
The CDC says over 30% of antibiotic prescriptions are unnecessary - yet most conventionally trained doctors reach for them as a “quick fix” because they don’t know how else to help.
Sometimes you need antibiotics, they can be very effective in treating infections and save lives — but in doing so, they also disrupt the integrity of the intestinal microbiome.
This change leads to a decrease in the number and types of microbes found in the gut. These patterns have been previously associated with poorer health, lower immune function, and issues with creating nutrients as well as bouncing back after illnesses.
Taking many rounds of antibiotics can impact your digestive health in the short and long term as well as the many functions your gut is responsible for including creating nutrients, your metabolic health, helping with hormonal imbalances, and protecting your brain health.
Restoration of gut flora is both art and science. But it takes more than just recommending an off-the-shelf probiotic and hoping for the best. For example:
Reducing sugar and processed foods
Eliminating inflammatory iols
A comprehensive approach addressing healing foods, managing stress, and proper exercise are all needed to restore healthy GUT function.
