    Default Thread: Gut Biota Never Recover from Antibiotic Use - Extends to Future Generations

    by Lois Rain

    Evidence shows the mass antibiotics experiment is devastating our children’s health. It may be the reason so many struggle for breath and can’t assimilate food properly.

    Emerging research shows that the harmful effects of antibiotics go much further than the development of drug resistant diseases. The beneficial bacteria lost to antibiotics, along with disease-inducing bacteria, do not recover fully. Worse, flora lost by a mother is also lost to her babies. The missing beneficial gut bacteria are likely a major factor behind much of the chronic disease experienced today. The continuous use of antibiotics is resulting in each generation experiencing worse health than their parents.

    There's a lot of good info in this article but the word NEVER does not belong. It can be corrected with profound diet changes, consuming living lacto-fermented foods, good probiotics etc. Diets like GAPS and Body Ecology have proven this healing can happen. There's even the possibility of fecal transplants to heal a severely damaged gut where normal flora just won't re-establish.

    Fecal transplants? Scared to ask just what that means....

    I think that this means exactly what you think it means. Definitely a last resort matter...

    Yep, exactly what it says. Believe it or not, this is actually used in conventional medicine to treat resistant C.diff infections. You find a healthy donor, preferably someone who lives in same household. Another great donor is a breast fed baby born vaginally. Anyway, the stool is liquified and either given as enema or put into small intestine with a naso-gastric tube (actually works better via NG tube). Prior to the transplant, usually the patient takes something that pretty much wipes out everything living in their GI tract. Human to human fecal transplants is the only way to absolutely ensure the organisms become part of the flora and are not just transient. There is some evidence dairy kefir does gradually "take" but most probiotics simply do their job on the way out. Taken (or eaten) often enough, long enough, in conjunction with a decent diet, probiotics do a good job of transforming the gut flora.
