Antibiotics change the environment in the colon by eliminating some types of bacteria. The problem with this is that they eliminate both good and bad bacteria types. The good bacteria can be a protection for the colon environment, but if they are killed and those bad buggers are not killed, well then guess who has free reign of the place? When the bad ones over-grow, then they become "infectors". They multiply and cause infections and rake havoc with the immune system which tries its hardest to defend itself. Usually diarrhea, bloating, inflammation, and increased spasming can result in you becoming quite uncomfortable, a little inconvenieced by unexpected trips to the john, and maybe leaving you feel a little drained from exhaustion of your body trying to fight it.The answer seems to be in restoration of the healthy flora, and sometimes a little annihilation of those bad buggers. Now that may not seem too hard, but first we have to identify just who those bad buggers and the good flora are, and how they are affecting us, and then work on finding the right balance necessary to help our systems run properly. This is not an easy task.
Especially when our nervous system has such a good memory.
