If You’ve Ever Taken Antibiotics, You MUST Read This…

Depending on the doctor you go see, you may or may not be given antibiotics to fight off an infection. Some give antiobiotics for almost everything, though others realize the importance of not over-exposing the body to so many antibiotics and only give them when it’s completely necessary.

Antibiotics kill or slow the growth of bacteria. They are drugs and are among the most frequently prescribed in modern medicine.

Antibiotics can cause some side effects like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and fungal infections… and that’s what I want to talk about here.

The issue here is the slowing or killing off of bacteria. Your entire digestive system relies on bacteria to breakdown and digest your food. There is good bacteria throughout your small and large intestines that is supposed to be there at all times. However, when taking antibiotics, they can’t choose which bacteria they fight off and which they leave. You can lose all your good bacteria, or even just enough, so the bad bacteria can take over.

Have you ever heard of Candida? It’s an overgrowth of yeast in your entire system! And it’s the same thing that can cause vaginal yeast infections. (if you can’t seem to get rid of yeast infections or have them recurring, you could have a candida issue)

Candida can happen when you don’t have a good ratio between good bacteria and bad. If that’s knocked out of balance by antibiotics, yeast has the opportunity to take over and flourish in that environment. There is not enough, if any, good bacteria to keep it in check.

This could also cause digestive issues, which could lead to malabsorption issues. And if you aren’t getting all the nutrients you need, your body will react in all sorts of ways (I believe this is part of my daughter’s issue since she had Celiac and we didn’t know it… but in her case, it’s the small villi hairs of the small intestine not working properly that has caused some malabsorption… we will discuss Celiac and gluten-intolerance later in this series).

So, how do you add good bacteria back into your system once you have had antibiotics? You need prebiotics (promote friendly bacteria) and probiotics (small organisms that help maintain the natural balance of microflora in the intestines). These are available in capsule form, but also in foods, as well. There is healthy, good bacteria in yogurt that would be good to eat while TAKING antibiotics, if they are necessary, to try to keep them all from being killed off in the process of using the meds. Also, both prebiotics and probiotics are in Shakeology, a meal replacement shake full of protein and superfoods from around the planet (one of the best things you can put in your body!). Check out this video about it: “See What Doctors Are Saying About Shakeology”

Your good bacteria does a lot for you and if it’s not properly maintained, it can affect a WHOLE lot of other functions in your body. So, load up!!!

Nitric Oxide Used To Build Muscle – Is It Safe?

Have you heard of using nitric oxide to build muscle? People are starting to use it since it’s more natural than steroids.

The important role Nitric oxide plays in the human body makes it one of the most researched molecules. It regulates the cirulation of blood to all parts of the body. It helps support the immune system. It plays a critical role in the proper functioning of organs. It also helps carry messages to nerve cells, among many other things.

The demand for the supplements has gone up recently when people learned that it also helps in building muscles.

But is it safe?

Some side effects can be minimal and ever disappear over time, but if taken the wrong way, serious damage can be caused to the body and it can also lead to death. Some of the side effects include:

~ Headache
~ Nausea
~ Diarrhea
~ Fatigue
~ Heart Palpitations
~ Dry Mouth
~ Fainting
~ Skin Irritation
~ Wheezing
~ Vomiting
~ Hives

… along with many more (for a more extensive list, please see http://www.buzzle.com/articles/nitric-oxide-side-effects.html

The important thing is to:
1) Consult your doctor before taking
2) Be sure you take the PROPER DOSE (you may even want to start with a smaller dose than the correct one so your body can adjust properly)
3) Stop use IMMEDIATELY if you have nasty side effects and consult your doctor ASAP

You will have to make the judgment call for yourself whether or not you take this. I think I will stick with eating healthy with plenty of protein ~ the building block of muscle!!!

Take Two Of These Drugs and Call Me In The Morning!

Have you noticed all the pills, drugs, medicines, and pharmaceuticals being offered in media all the time now to help with almost anything that ails you… headaches, fevers, allergies, fibromyalgia, etc. But, have you also paid attention to the side effects? They almost all have them and can vary from fatigue and nose bleeds to heart attack and even death!

WOW.

So, how would you like to trade that headache for a heart attack? Or that itchy skin for a nose bleed followed by death?

In some cases, of course, drugs have been helpful. However, most people just blindly start using pharmaceuticals and don’t take the time to research them, find out about the drug’s trials, or even know what it’s actually doing in their body!

Did you know that drugs are hard on your liver?

Have you ever thought about why you are taking a drug? Do any of the drugs you are taking cure the root problem that led to the headache, the allergy, the fatigue, the nausea? Are you curing the issue or just masking the symptoms? Are you even potentially trading one symptom for 3 more you’ve never had?

Think about it. Is your body lacking an antidepressant drug or does it just need more B3 vitamin? Did you know that people have been known to get better from depression by taking Niacin (B3)?

Before you pop the next set of pills, stop and think. Research. Why do you have those symptoms? Personally, I believe there are very few diseases and bodily problems that develop overnight. People don’t just become anxious overnight. There has been some change in their bodies that caused the panic attacks (or whatever the symptom is). Trace it back. What changed in your life? How are you eating? Well or junk? How’s your sleep? Do you get enough GOOD sleep at night? Have you had changes in your hormones?

Drugs aren’t always the answer. Actually, rarely are they the answer. They have their place and are useful, for sure, in some cases. But there are plenty of ailments that can be healed without going that route.

Think outside the pill box. You just might save your liver and your life!
