Anything else to make the hit of the medicine a little less strong, especially on gut health? Any great ways to help your kids bounce back?

When you or your kids have to take the antibiotics...post #1 of 81/30/13 at 8:38pmThread Starterpost #2 of 81/31/13 at 2:27pmI do Florstor while on antibiotics. The antibiotics can't kill it and it's great with suppression of candida as well. We do a Florastor with each antibiotic dose and Culturelle three hours after each dose as much as possible. It would be good afterward to do a probiotic proven to survive digestion and colonize. I really like Klaire labs. Your present probiotics/probiotic foods might be good, Andrew carries c. diff now after a hospitalization so we just continue with the big guns of Culturelle and Florastor.post #3 of 81/31/13 at 3:14pmQuote:Originally Posted by sbgrace

Wow! I was going to post almost exactly the same regimen. Just want to add that Jarrow makes a sacchryomyces boulardii that is a bit cheaper and just about the same as florastor in my experience.
I used to laugh that they make the "I heart Culturelle" tshirts. Now, I would totally wear one, LOL!post #4 of 82/1/13 at 10:18amThread Starterpost #5 of 82/3/13 at 2:09pmThread Starterpost #6 of 82/9/13 at 7:09pm
My son used to love Kombucha...before he was old enough to really discern it from other options :)
But i was going to add that in doing some research about post-antibiotic help, I found that pre-biotics are as essential as pro-biotics and actually make the re-colonization more successful. They kind of pave the way, so to speak. You can get pre/pro biotic combos, but you have to look for them specifically. The doc I was talking with about this said that it takes 18months for the gut to fully recolonize from a round of antibiotics! I don't have a source to offer, it was a private consultation, but I was thinking of looking it up because I had no idea....post #7 of 82/9/13 at 7:22pm
im interested in responses as well. im doubling up on my dd's probiotics, and am going to get more kefir for her. she has a very bad infection in her chest, and is having trouble breathing, i had no choice but to use them to get her well. poor duck..
i hate abx, but they do have their time and place when truly needed and other options failed..
i have a long history of misuse with myself for abx which long story short i suffer from some autoimmune issues.
hoping my dd can recover from this. that is scary it takes a full 18 months for the gut to recolonize. is that with or without abx??
