Intestinal rehabilitation after antibiotics

Help for the bacteria

After taking antibiotics, intestinal cleansing may be necessary in order to get your gut back on track. Because antibiotics work against bacteria in the body, the number of bacteria can be significantly reduced after antibiotic therapy. Most of the time this creates an imbalance – a so-called dysbacteriosis. It can cause many ailments that go far beyond flatulence and digestive problems. Dry skin, weight gain or allergies are also possible consequences. Because the intestine plays a big part in the well-being of your entire body.

Antibiotics and their influence on the intestine

Antibiotics are a great achievement because they work against numerous diseases and infections. But the reason why they help so well is also the reason why they have a strong effect on the intestinal balance: Antibiotics eliminate bacteria.

Sometimes antibiotics work too well

Basically, each antibiotic has been developed for a specific area of application and is only intended to kill very certain bacteria. However, antibiotics are not that precise – they always attack other bacteria as well, whereby they do not distinguish between "good" and "bad" representatives. The intestinal microbiota suffers particularly when taking a broad-spectrum antibiotic.

Long-term effects of antibiotics on the intestine

The long-term effects of antibiotics on intestinal bacteria have not been fully investigated. However, it is very likely that antibiotics can cause months or even years of impairment, depending on the degree to which the delicate balance in the intestine has been disturbed.

Rebuilding the intestine after antibiotic therapy

An intestinal rehabilitation after antibiotic therapy helps to ensure that all intestinal bacteria that are necessary for a healthy balance in the intestine settle again as quickly as possible. In addition to an appropriate diet – because the intestinal bacteria also need food – you can support intestinal cleansing with probiotic food supplements from BIOMES. Natural probiotics are for example yogurt and kefir, both of which contain lactic acid bacteria. But the intestinal microbiota consists of so many different types of bacteria that it is a real challenge to try to get them all from food. With probiotic supplements, you can be sure that you are taking in all the important bacteria!

Is intestinal cleansing after antibiotics always necessary?

The intestine and its complex processes are far from being fully explored. Hardly anyone will deny that a balanced intestinal flora is is essential for the health of the entire human body. An intestinal repair is not harmful. So, if you feel that your gut needs support, you should help it.

After taking antibiotics: intestinal cleansing through a diet?

If you are looking for a healthy and balanced diet to get your gut back on track, you should follow a few recommendations. Your intestines will thank you for a bowel-friendly diet both during and after taking antibiotics. This includes, for example, not consuming alcohol. In addition, you should also remove sugar and other easily digestible carbohydrates from your diet. Instead, eat many foods that are rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals. Flea seed, linseed and Chia seeds support regular bowel defecation as they swell in the bowels.

Natural intestinal rehabilitation: Can the body regenerate itself?

The body possesses impressive regenerative abilities – this also applies to the intestines. But a natural intestinal regeneration – especially after taking antibiotics – does not always succeed completely. In addition, this process can take quite a while, during which the imbalance between the bacterial speciesleads to further problems. Even the number of such bacteria that are not directly affected by the antibiotic can gradually decrease. For example, this happens when the antibiotic kills other bacteria on which they depend.

Some bacteria are also very dominant. If their opponents are missing, they multiply uncontrollably, which causes discomfort or block important processes in the intestine.

Certain processes in the intestine can, therefore, become independent, whereby it can become so out of balance that the body's regenerative powers alone are not enough. That's why you usually do yourself and your intestines a favor by helping them a little and supporting the intestinal rehabilitation after taking antibiotics with high-quality dietary supplements.
