Antibiotics (side effects of)
By Steven Horne, RH (AHG) & Kimberly Balas, ND

See also Fungal Infections

Antibiotics are antibacterial agents. They have no effect against viral conditions for which they are frequently prescribed. Unfortunately, antibiotics also destroy beneficial bacteria in the gastrointestinal and female reproductive tract. This allows yeast to multiply out of balance with other organisms in the body. Yeast produce a toxin that weakens the immune system. Long-term use of antibiotics results in reduced immunity. See Probiotics for more options.

After completing a round of antibiotics it is important to take probiotics in order to replace the friendly bacteria that have been destroyed. There are many species of friendly bacteria or lactobacillus besides the commonly recommended Lactobacillus acidophilus. It may also be helpful to take antifungal herbs after taking antibiotics to knock down yeast.
