Antibiotic Use In Children Creates Long-Term Health Problems

One of the most damaging long-term effects on children's health is the use of antibiotics.  Researchers  in Ireland and Canada have found that the "use of ampicillin and gentamicin in early life can have significant effects on the evolution of the infant gut microbiota, the long-term health implications of which remain unknown." Up to 90% [...]

Candida and Diabetes

Candida and Diabetes are two common conditions that occur as a result of past antibiotic use. Each condition supports the existence of the other, but fungal candida alone can create diabetes through direct and indirect means. Diabetes is a condition in which regulation of the level of sugar (Glucose) in the blood has been altered. [...]

Candida Diets: Part V: The Quick Fix

Many candida diets offer the "quick fix." Candida diets can vary based on who is presenting the information and their particular motivation. The majority of all candida diets follow a protocol first conceived by Dr. Orian Truss in the 1950S. In spite of a great deal of science that has revealed further insights since then, most [...]

Candida and Asthma

Candida and asthma occur frequently together as a result of antibiotics and steroid therapies. Antibiotics eliminate the beneficial bacteria flora found in the lungs, intestinal tract, and throughout the body, thereby eliminating the inhibition of  candida colonization. Additionally, antibiotics and steroids temporarily suppress the ability of the immune system to respond to the spread of candida, [...]

Candida Diets: Part IV: Sugars

candida-diets-part-iv-sugars In Candida Diets: Part IV: Sugars, we now look at the effect of sugars in a candida diet. I've written about this several times, as it is one area where Dr. McCombs Candida Plan has always differed from the many other candida diets out there. In the typical candida diet, sugars are eliminated completely. [...]

Antibiotics in Meats Kill Beneficial Bacteria

This recently released study shows how antibiotic residues in conventionally-raised meats can go on killing beneficial bacteria. The antibiotics have no effect against the pathogenic bacteria in this study. There is nothing in the human digestive process that would eliminate the antibiotic effect either, resulting in further imbalances to our digestive flora. Another reason to [...]

Vaginal Candida Infections

Vaginal candida infections are often a misdiagnosis. Some sources indicate that most vaginal infections are caused by bacteria (bacterial vaginosis), not yeast/fungus. Unfortunately, the medical profession takes a knee-jerk approach to diagnosis and treats the majority of these as yeast infections.  This can prolong the condition and contribute to ongoing vaginal flora imbalances, as well [...]

Candida Destroying White Blood Cells

The first line of defense of the immune system is typically the white blood cell known as a macrophage, which engulfs micro-organisms. Candida has an ability to convert back-and-forth between yeast and fungal forms depending on its environment. It's ability to convert from it's normal yeast form to it's invasive fungal form is problematic for [...]

Gut Microbes Benefit Pregnancy

Gut Microbes Benefit Pregnancy More and more science points out how critical and essential the intestinal flora (microbiome) is for health in the body. We are “Super-organisms.” The current point of view is that we consist of host cells (human cells) and support cells (bacteria, parasites, viruses, yeasts, fungi, etc.). Over thousands of [...]

More on Bacillus subtilis

Here's a list of antibiotics that Bacillus subtilis is used with. It's effects are against aerobic and non-aerobic bacteria. There is no differentiating between good and bad bacteria, as some people are lead to believe. That differentiation is something put out by the pharmaceuitical companies and MDs. The warrior model of destroying this and that [...]
