Restore Health after Antibiotics

Restore Health after Antibiotics

Sometimes taking a course of antibiotics is unavoidable. While there is no doubt these medicines play a critical role in fighting bacterial infections quickly, they can also cause collateral damage to your gut’s complex microbiome.

What is the gut microbiome?
We have trillions of microorganisms (or flora) living in and on us, both beneficial and not so beneficial. In a healthy body, these live together in harmony as a community, also known as the “microbiome”. The bulk of these microorganisms live in our gut. As we are learning, our microbiome contributes to our whole body health from our digestive function to our mood to our healthy immune response.

The effect of antibiotics on our microbiome
The use of antibiotics, particularly long courses or multiple courses, can disrupt the delicate balance of our microbiome and consequently throw things out of whack. Antibiotic use can make conditions more favourable for the non-beneficial gut flora, helping them to thrive. This overgrowth can crowd-out and reduce the good kind. Among other possible issues, this can make people susceptible to gut discomfort and diarrhoea both at the time of taking antibiotics and for several months after. When this happens, you want to restore the beneficial gut flora as quickly as possible.

What can I do to restore balance if I’m taking antibiotics?
The good news is you can counteract the negative effects of antibiotics on your microbiome and support the restoration of healthy gut flora by taking a probiotic.

Tips for taking probiotics with antibiotics
For the best results, take probiotics throughout the duration of antibiotic treatment, from the first day and for a minimum of two weeks after. It is important to take your probiotic supplement at least two hours before or after taking your antibiotic.
