Why Antibiotics Make You Sicker
Antibiotics are the common medical treatment for bacterial infections. Antibiotics not only attack the “bad bacteria” (the flies) but they also kill the good bacteria that fight off the other invaders. Since 80% of the body’s immunity is in the gut, taking an antibiotic orally sends it straight to the epicenter of your bodies defense system.
We now know that flies don’t cause garbage and bacteria doesn’t create infections. It is the soil (the tissues of the body) that promotes the seed (bacteria) to grow. If the body was completely healthy the bacteria could not and would not survive.
Your immune system is your body’s first line of defense against viruses, bacteria, parasites, fungus and other foreign invaders. Immune cells also seek and destroy mutant and pre-cancerous cells. The immune system has a vast capacity to remember the bad guys and deploy tactics that worked in the past to annihilate the enemy. Some of the fastest growing cells in the human body are immune cells.
Giving an antibiotic to an infant could be the absolute worst thing to do. Antibiotics indiscriminately kill bacteria, both good and bad. One round of antibiotics can permanently change the baby’s immune system, and because a majority of neuro-chemicals are also made in the gut, the baby’s neurology is also altered.
Most parents believe that an antibiotic is a harmless treatment for common ailments like ear infections and strep throat and medical doctors seem to hand them out like candy. But, once the very first antibiotic is administered to the infant or child, the bacteria in the gut is wiped out and the immune system is permanently altered in its ability to manufacture appropriate immune cells. Fungus in the gut is now unopposed and begins to proliferate unchecked by the friendly bacteria. After fungus sets up strongholds then parasites move in to share the bounty of food and minerals meant to feed the body. This is the first step for chronic disease and cancer.
The fungus weakens the intestinal wall until it leaks, allowing partially digested foods, bacterium and allergens to cross into the blood. Now the already weakened immune system has double-duty to perform; clean up the gut while tracking down new threats to the body.
The leakage into the blood stream can lead to inflammation of organs. Which, along with a chronically weakened immune function, can lead to long-term chronic diseases and even cancer.
What is the best option for you and your family? First make informed decisions before submitting to any medical treatment, including taking antibiotics. Look for a doctor that addresses the CAUSE of your health problem rather than treating the symptoms. Instead of killing the flies clean up the garbage!
