Antibiotics: A miracle drug turned sour

Give antibiotics to an infant and sentence them to allergies, autoimmune disorders, obesity and an elevated risk for infectious diseases later in life. At least that’s what the latest study out of the University of Minnesota says. Researchers reaffirmed what many other studies already say: early antibiotics just totally mess up the gut, metabolism and the immune system. This is called ‘dysbiosis’ – where profound negative and lasting changes occur in the gut microbiome. In fact, just one lousy dose of antibiotics permanently changes the gut bacteria where digestion occurs, neurochemicals are manufactured and the majority of the immune system is built and regulated. Antibiotics annihilate key gut bacteria that regulate immune system responses to keep allergens at bay – gut bacteria cells that regulate metabolism are snuffed out, slowing metabolism and increasing levels of health-wrecking short-chain fatty acids – and neurochemicals that support salubrious mental health cannot be properly assembled. Heck, the use of antibiotics is even directly tied to developmental delays. Antibiotics should always be a last resort – not a palliative token to cover up a failed diagnosis.
