Antibiotic Overuse - The Unspoken Pandemic

A Gut Feeling

12-05-2022 • 56 mins

Antibiotics are everywhere. They're the first solution to any infection, used prophylatically before and after surgeries, and even for rashes in infants and young children. We're saying it - it's a pandemic.

The problem with antibiotics is - bacteria can build up tolerance to them, making them ineffective. And possibly even worse - antibiotics wipe out all good bacteria also, leaving you potentially more susceptible to infections and bacteria than before.

This podcast covers it all:

  • The problem with using antibiotics
  • Why antibiotics make you more susceptible to "bad" bacteria
  • The link between antibiotics and SIBO
  • Nature's antibiotics
  • Supplements that are superior to antibiotics - and why
  • Why a multi-faceted approach is needed
  • How to approach "recovery" from antibiotic use
