Supporting your gut health after antibiotics requires a multi-faceted approach like tending to a garden with many varieties of plants. Antibiotics are often essential and lifesaving medications when used appropriately. However, the research tell us that the gut microbiome is disturbed for some time after even a short course of antibiotics and some species may not recover at all. This can lead to future health problems for individuals since we know the gut microbiome is linked to so many aspects of health.
I've got a brand new, free, value-packed resource designed to help you support your gut health and microbiome both during and after antibiotics.
When a family member experienced distressing symptoms following IV and oral antibiotics given for surgery, I gave her my recommended treatment to help her microbiome recover. During that period, I was very concerned she may have picked up a Clostridium difficile infection in the hospital as her symptoms and antibiotic use suggested the possibility. Thankfully after a month or so on my treatment, her symptoms improved and are no longer a problem. So, I know these recommendations work as I've seen it first hand. The research evidence also supports this approach.
I since then decided to provide my recommendations as a free resource so that others could use the same evidence-based techniques for themselves or family members where required. This information should be freely available and my wish is that this treatment becomes standard medical practice following antibiotic use. I'm not so sure that will happen, so this is my contribution to improving the situation.
It goes without saying that I am indebted to microbiome researchers and clinicians such as Naturopath Jason Hawrelak, PhD. I've taken many of his online courses and listened to various podcasts where he has been the guest.
Specifically, this gut health recovery protocol helps to:
- Prevent pathogens like Clostridium difficile from taking hold after antibiotic use
- Prevent Candida overgrowth/thrush which is very common after antibiotics, especially multiple rounds
- Restore microbiome diversity for general health - gut microbiome health is associated with every single body system.
The gut health and microbiome support protocol includes
- Probiotics - specific strains that actually have evidence for helping the growth of native gut bacteria
- Prebiotic foods and supplements to support diversity of species
- Colonic foods to support general growth of beneficial bacteria
- Polyphenol foods also support the growth of beneficial bacteria
This resource includes
- A handy overview of the different aspects of the protocol
- Detailed product and food lists with full page colour photos
- Links to some of my own recipes so you can get started
- References for those who want to research more about this topic
