  1. Antibiotics lead to long-term gut damage

    [Warning] This bogus SCARE TACTIC could DESTROY your gut

    It’s the ONE key to protecting yourself from infection… digestive problems… mood disorders... and more.

    It’s a single step that will SOLVE ALL OF THESE problems at once.

    Yet right now, the mainstream is doubling down on an effort to SCARE YOU AWAY from it!

    See, there’s been yet another attack on probiotics, which provide healthy bacteria to your gut.

    And this attack may be the most OUTRAGEOUS yet.

    They’re urging you away from these healthy supplements… just when you need them the most!

    That’s during and after an antibiotic treatment, when your body’s processing drugs that were specifically CREATED to wipe out bacteria.

    That’s what they do, by DEFINITION. They (hopefully) kill the germs making you sick, but they also destroy the GOOD bacteria needed for some of your most basic and most essential functions.

    A probiotic will replenish that stash of bacteria as the drugs wipe them out, helping you in two distinct and proven ways:

    • Probiotics cut the immediate risks, like diarrhea and secondary infections; and
    • They’ll also help over the long haul, ensuring you continue to have good digestion, serotonin production, immune support and more.

    Yet the new study claims none of that matters.

    Researchers say you can fill your body with the antibiotics… including some of the most powerful meds in the whole pharmacy… and never have to worry about a thing.

    The study claims that your gut bacteria quickly return to normal after antibiotic treatment.

    Well, that’s their conclusion… but it’s DEAD WRONG.

    I read the DETAILS of the study, and the details tell a whole different story…

    The details not only PROVE that your gut DOESN’T return to normal, but they also reveal how it might NEVER be right again!

    Not on its own anyway.

    The study finds at least NINE types of essential “good” bacteria DON’T return in normal levels in the six months after antibiotic treatment.

    Bacteria are opportunists, of course. When the good ones leave, the bad ones move in, and that’s not just a “theory” anymore...

    The new study confirms it once again. It found that “non-desirable” bacteria can invade the gut in the aftermath, throwing that balance out whack.

    That combo – low levels of good bacteria and higher levels of bad ones – can set the stage for serious and lasting problems, including chronic disease and in some cases, even an early death.

    Obviously, if you’re ever taking antibiotics, ignore the conclusion of this new study take a probiotic.

    But don’t assume you’re in the clear if you’re not on the meds or haven’t taken them lately.

    Millions of Americans are exposed to chronic low levels of “HIDDEN” antibiotics through food, water and more.

    Probiotics restore order and balance!

    Just don’t settle on a cheap blend from a big box store.

    Instead, look for one with multiple, high-quality human-tested strains.

  2. BUSTED: Antibiotics with highest infection risk

    Hospital stay? Avoid these drugs to stay infection-free

    It's the ultimate hospital nightmare.

    Instead of getting better, you get worse -- and not just because you have some tough-to-treat illness that has doctors stumped.

    Too often, the doctors that are supposed to help you heal can actually make things worse!

    Every day, 1 in 25 hospital patients develop a whole new infection caused entirely by their "care," especially the overuse of the antibiotic drugs given to half of all patients.

    Now, the latest research uncovers one of the keys to avoiding the worst of those infections.

    It's a nasty little bug called Clostridium difficile, and it strikes patients -- especially older patients -- in hospitals and care facilities, almost always after taking antibiotics.

    Every year, half a million Americans suffer from these infections, battling intense pain in the gut and diarrhea so severe that it can lead to dehydration.

    And every year, some 15,000 Americans -- mostly seniors -- DIE of these infections.

    The new study shows one way to bring those numbers down to size, cutting both the infection rate and the death rate: It finds that some antibiotics are a whole lot worse than others when it comes to this risk.

    Unfortunately, they're also some of the most commonly used antibiotics in hospitals.

    More than 1 in 10 hospital patients given antibiotics are put on ceftriaxone, a third-generation cephalosporin… and third- and fourth-generation cephalosporins are among the drugs most likely to lead to C. diff infection, according to the new study.

    Another drug on the list is used just as often, with 1 in 10 hospital patients on antibiotics getting a drug called piperacillin-tazobactam.

    Carbapenems and metronidazole, both of which are frequently used in hospitals, also increase the risk of C. diff infections, according to the new study.

    There's not much you can do when you're so sick in a hospital that you're being pumped full of antibiotics, but you can request that your doctors prescribe probiotics such as Sacharomyces boulardii, which prevents C difficile overgrowth.

    So, prepare yourself now.

    The key reason for these infections isn't just the overuse of the drugs.

    It's that many people are already quietly suffering from bacterial problems in the gut, and they may even already have C. diff lying low in the digestive tract.

    It's as if the gut is quietly being filled with gasoline… and the hospital antibiotic is the match that sets it on fire.

    Take a quality probiotic daily, and your body will be better able to handle an unexpected stay in a hospital -- and even if you never end up sick enough to need that care, you can enjoy better overall health, a stronger immune system, and smoother digestion.

    Not a bad consolation prize, if you ask me.
