Antibiotics have properties known to damage healthy mitochondrial cells, weaken the immune system, lead to free radical damage, wipe out the diverse and necessary microbiome of the gut which can lead to candida overgrowth and digestive problems.
Antibiotics can also lead to damage to the gut lining known as leaky gut. Many times, antibiotics are combined with Ibuprofen which can be very dangerous. This combo potentiates leaky gut which can be the gateway to autoimmune disease and poor brain functioning.
Certain antibiotics like fluoroquinolones can be quite deadly and have disabled millions of people around the world. They contain a fluoride component which is a neurotoxin which allows for binding to the central nervous system attached to an antibiotic that unwinds DNA and destroys healthy cells. This is one of the reasons why Fluoroquinolone antibiotics such as Ciprofloxacin, Cipro, Levaquin, Levofloxacin, Ciprodex, and Avelox lead to permanent disability.
The overuse of antibiotics statistically worsen every year. This overuse is caused by everyone wanting a quick fix rather than naturally boosting their immune system the correct pathway for minimizing infections. Lab results for bacterial infections may take several days to return, so antibiotics are usually prescribed in the meantime just in case. In urgent cares, primary care doctor offices, surgery practices and ERs, the demanding pressure to avoid negative reviews leads to over prescription of antibiotics in case that 1/100 patient ends up with an infection and writes something negative.
Additionally, doctors in America deal more with administrative work than caring for their patients, which leads them to write a prescription and make the patient happy. Parents are the worst culprit because they expect something written for their child who continues to feel sick. If parents avoided antibiotics for their children in the first place, their children would not be sick at such an alarming rate. The pressure placed on by parents, lack of patience, and the possibility of having an upset patient creates a disaster for the overuse of antibiotics in America.
What Happens When Antibiotics Get Overused?
When antibiotics are overused, the immune system weakens, leading to an increased risk of infection. Antibiotic resistance also takes place, so the next time you develop the same infection, that bacteria can mutate to be resistant to the same antibiotic, which can lead you to the rabbit hole of requiring more dangerous antibiotics in the future.
Yeast infections like candida can arise due to the depletion of normal gut bacteria to offset the yeast. Women are then prescribed diflucan which is a fluoridated antifungal that can cause severe neurological side effects. Antibiotics must be used with caution and not taken for no reason or guess work. Medicine must be practiced correctly, and anyone using an antibiotic must have a confirmed bacterial infection. For some, the long term damage can be permanent.
