good gut bacteria --- do we make it?

A pharmacist told me that even though antibiotics will kill your good bacteria, your body will make more after you stop taking the antibiotics.

I always thought your body does NOT make the good bacteria in your gut. Once it's gone, you have to supplement to get it back. Anyone know?

I think the pharmacist should stick to pharmaceuticals. The body doesn't make any bacteria. Instead, they multiply themselves, and if you manage to wipe them all out, you will not have any until you get some from external sources. A problem with this is that it's unlikely that you will kill them all, and what's left may become dominant, and it's possible what becomes dominant is not what will promote health. So, supplementing should help. And in my opinion, we should supplement with a wide variety of microbes, and naturally (in a traditional way) fermented foods are best for this.

Why is it then when I eat fermented foods it makes my candida worse? I get all the usual candida symptoms when I try to eat miso or tempeh. I don't dare drink alcohol.

I don't eat miso or tempeh and don't know how they are fermented, and particularly, the products you eat (who knows what is added to them?). Have you eaten home made sauerkraut (sour cabbage), kimchi, sour cucumbers, etc. -- veggies fermented with no vinegar or added yeasts? And if so, do you have same problems with them?

Just a guess, but it's conceivable that your problems with miso and tempher come from soy, not the fact that it's fermented.

Hi, Alexandria.

Remember that one cannot have C-RS without first having LGS and most of the symptoms ascribed to C-RS are only exacerbated symptoms commonly present with LGS.

So far, only God can make a living thing. Since bacteria are living things, we CANNOT make them inside our bodies.

Hope this helps.

Walt
