Antibiotics, mean "against life".

They are designed to kill harmful bacteria. Antibiotics, not only kill the bad bacteria in our body, but it also destroys the good bacteria in our gut. Good bacteria are known as probiotics. They cannot differentiate, good and bad bacteria in the body. Antibiotics, can damage our immune system. 

Sometimes, taking antibiotics is unavoidable. Antibiotics, can weaken your immune system. Constipation, diarrhea, gas, bloating and acidity are some symptoms of bad gut health.

Here is what to do for healing of your gut -

1. Take real food - Stay away from food with added preservatives, additives and trans-fats. Replace them with fresh ingredients. Limit consumption of sugar.

2. Probiotoics - Probiotics are good bacteria. They are needed for our body to promote digestion. Eating fermented products preserve the good bacteria in your gut. Eat home made yogurt to improve your gut health.
