I'm off Bactrim in two days. That's when the real test begins.
I've learned much about the harm antibiotics does. Mainly the killing of both good and bad bacterias, allowing for yeast overgrowth resulting in poor nutrient absorption in the intestines, rashes, overload to the liver, etc. When one part of the body is altered, the rest of the body is affected. Especially when it is a critical element like the digestive system.
In the past I've suffered from rashes and itchy skin that I attributed to hockey... now I'm beginning to suspect antibiotics. Anyone on antibiotics please make sure to take probiotics during and after your course, that are enteric coated!
What did I say, I am a closet hippie down with hollistic health and natural healing.
Thanks for all your comments and encouragement.
I have a co-worker who is chinese and I overheard her say "Life is bitches, and then you die."
LOL I love that.
