Podcast: Dr. LaValle Joins “Wellness of Life” Radio to Talk Probiotics

Hundreds of antibiotics have become available since the discovery of penicillin. However, their overuse has contributed to drug-resistant bacteria that no longer respond to treatment. While antibiotics are a worthwhile and necessary course of treatment in many cases, they can produce unwanted side effects, and they can even kill off good gut bacteria too.

The overuse of antibiotics – especially taking antibiotics even when they’re not the appropriate treatment – promotes antibiotic resistance. According the CDC, up to one-third to one-half of antibiotic use in humans is unnecessary or inappropriate. Antibiotics treat bacterial infections, but not viral infections. Common infections that do not benefit from antibiotic treatment include: cold, flu, bronchitis, stomach flu, most coughs, some sinus infections, and some ear infections. If you end up taking an antibiotic for any of these infections, it will not help you to feel better, it will not cure the infection, it may cause unnecessary and harmful side effects, and it promotes antibiotic resistance. It is recommended to take a probiotic two hours from your antibiotic dose, which can help combat some of these unwanted side effects.
