Zithromax, Yeast Infections, Sinusitis,
and Leaky Gut:
The Good, the Bad,
by Brian Benjamin
I absolutely LOVE your website!!! Talk about
informative! In our world today there is NO reason for our
ignorance on things such as our own HEALTH!
Dr. B, I have had a sinus infection twice
in as many months so far this year. I guess it could be
considered a cold maybe. Coughing, sneezing, headache, congestion,
with some small episodes of chills. The first lasted almost
2 weeks & I rubbed down w/ vapor rub @ night, ate cough
drops (fisherman's friend) & took Advil when needed.
The second is not as bad. Seems like I'm alot
better & not quite a week yet.
I went by Doctors office yesterday & they
gave me samples of Zithromax. DO NOT WANT TO TAKE IT! I am only
32 & I am going to start giving MY body a chance to fight
its own battles from now on! I will only use natural meds because
I feel like they wont throw my bodys' chemistry out of wack in
the long run.
Once again, THANK YOU SOO MUCH FOR THIS WEBSITE!!!
Thanks so much for your enthusiastic appreciation!
Zithromax, Sinusitis, Bacteria, and Viruses
So, what you describe sounds like it could be just as easily
viral as bacterial, and hasn't the media pounded into our heads
yet that antibiotics don't do anything against viruses? Western
Med is still failing against chronic or recurrent sinusitis. We've
got some chinese herb formulas for this... see a Chinese medicine
Sometimes, Antibiotics are Great!
I have to emphasize that when antibiotics are indicated, they
are wonderful- I had a really bad infection not too long ago.
I staved it off, and reduced it with herbs, but finally when it
wasn't going away after several days, I gave up and took antibiotics-
there was a huge improvement within hours.
I was humbled and impressed.
Sometimes, chinese herbs are great for colds and flu's, but some
infections are humdingers (another technical term).
So don't be afraid to use antibiotics when indicated... for example,
a green smelly sinus infection. Of course, see your doctor and
get their guidance.
Leaky Gut Syndrome: Preventing Post-Antibiotic Dysbiosis
Now, this is not to forget that antibiotics can throw off the
intestinal flora and lead to chronic candida and other intestinal
dysbioses (imbalances of the good bacteria in the intestines).
But if you follow up an antibiotic with broad-spectrum probiotics,
you can keep the intestinal flora health, balanced and happy.

Thanks so much for your feedback, and all the best!
