Last week, we talked about antibiotics.
Specifically, how to prevent damage to your gut & health if you find yourself in a situation where you have to take them.
In other words, flood your body with probiotics and fermented foods during and after your course of antibiotics in order to prevent bad bacteria from proliferating and causing an imbalance.
But what about if you’ve already taken many rounds of antibiotics in your life, and never took these preventative measures?
I’m willing to bet this is most of us. And it used to be me as well.
The thing is, not having the proper bacterial balance in your gut can lead to all sorts of issues… including digestive problems, yeast infections, full body inflammation, allergies, and it all can trickle down into a lot of skin problems… including acne, as well as eczema and rashes.
So is all lost if you’ve taken lots of antibiotics?
Will your gut, digestion, and subsequently skin be doomed to forever sub-parness?
No, there are definitely things you can do to heal your gut and get your bacterial balance back in line, which is one big factor in leading to skin that is vibrant and acne free.
However, the more antibiotics you’ve been on, and the longer you’ve been on them, the more you may need to work on this.
