There are 100 trillion beneficial bacteria called probiotics in the intestines.
These probiotics facilitate digestion, produce vitamins B and K, protect against cancer by supporting the immune system, and protect against diseases by preventing the proliferation of harmful microbes.
When even a single antibiotic is taken unconsciously, these probiotics die at a rate of 20 percent.
Unfortunately, returning these probiotics to the intestines is possible within 2 years, even with the best organic diet.
Using antibiotics as a baby causes loss of probiotics later in life, making them susceptible to infections.
Correct use of antibiotics is listed below:
- Conscious and rational use of antibiotics should be started under the supervision of a doctor.
- It should only be used in diseases proven to be bacterial.
- Broad-acting antibiotics should be avoided unless necessary.
- It should be used with a probiotic-probiotic combination to protect intestinal probiotics.
- It should be used by paying attention to its timing in order to avoid resistance.
- It should not be left prematurely.
Most antibiotics are eliminated from the body through the liver and kidneys.
For this reason, it can cause damage to the liver and kidneys.
In kidney and liver patients, if antibiotic treatment is required, low-dose or drugs that do not have renal-liver excretion should be preferred.
