check out the post on taking antibiotics during the treatment in Ables post index link. It said not to have any extra antifungal activity while on antibiotics and to increase probiotic intake
Day, the post you’re speaking of was written for a member who was pregnant at the time. I told her to avoid further antifungals because of the baby because I knew that the added probiotics alone would possibly cause additional die-off, and any antifungal would simply add to the amount, and therefore increase the toxins in her body even more which might affect her baby. Our main goal throughout her pregnancy was to protect the baby and to do whatever necessary in order to accomplish that. Anyone who is not pregnant at the time of the antibiotic round could, if they chose to do so, continue or add extra antifungals, just not at the same time as the probiotic dose since the antifungals could interfere with the breakdown and absorption of the CFU’s.
The antibiotic certainly won’t destroy all of the bacteria in the body. If that were true, those of us who have found it necessary to take a round of antibiotics would all be dead by now. Not that we need a book to prove it, but research in the book titled, “How the World Depends on Bacteria” shows that neither animals nor humans can exist without bacteria. So, yes, the antibiotics will destroy a large portion of the bacteria, but certainly not all, and that’s why we need to add more probiotics when taking an antibiotic and continue the amount for several weeks afterwards.
Look at it this way; if you take an extra 100 billion CFU’s of beneficial bacteria in one day, and your antibiotic dose that day is able to destroy 70%, then you still have 30-billion new CFU’s. But if you double your dose and take 200-billion new CFU’s and the same percentage is destroyed, then what you have left is 60-billion or twice as many as you would if you took the lower dose. Of course the numbers I’ve used simply represent an example, but really this is just common sense if nothing else.
