Antibiotic Resistance + Your Microbiotica

Antibiotics are in the spotlight again as new research shows that "even a single antibiotic treatment in healthy individuals contributes to the risk of resistance development and leads to long-lasting detrimental shifts in the gut microbiome." Egija Zaura, lead study author.

The microbiome is a complex ecosystem made up of more than 100 trillion microbes (bacteria or flora) that must be properly balanced and cared for to be healthy.

The imbalances in gut microbes are also known as dysbiosis, intestinal impermeability or leaky gut. This is linked to depleted immune functions contributing to infectious diseases, allergies, irritable bowel, food sensitivities, weight gain and autoimmune disorders to name a few!!!

Gut healing can be done with a personalised protocol including dietary intervention, herbal medicine, therapeutic pre & probiotics and lifestyle changes.

For a personalised plan let’s talk today. Book in for a phone, Skype or face-to-face consultation to rebuild your gut microbes (flora), improve digestion and restore your body to good health.
