Antibiotics & Stomach Upset
Hundreds of antibiotics have become available since the discovery of penicillin. However, their overuse has contributed to drug-resistant bacteria that no longer respond to treatment.

While antibiotics are a worthwhile and necessary course of treatment in many cases, they can produce unwanted side effects.

Antibiotics not only kill bad bacteria, but they also kill off good gut bacteria. The gut microbiome affects overall health and inflammation. Drug-induced diarrhea may result from antibiotics. Take a probiotic two hours from your antibiotic doses. Eat fermented food to support a healthy gut.

Listen as Dr. James LaValle joins Dr. Susanne Bennett to discuss how to help your gut when you need to take antibiotics.
