Antibiotics and Obesity

If you see so many obsessed and obese around you, one of many reasons is overuse of antibiotics.
Antibiotics ===> Killing of gut microbes
(Should we use word massacre? Yes, it is worst in facts)
====> Inability to digest essential proteins/vitamins ===> Abnormal Fat increase.

One friend said:
I don’t take antibiotics but still I am fat.
I asked him : “Do you drink dairy’s pasteurized milk?”
He replied: :”Yes”
“Well antibiotics are part of it. To increase milk production, they give antibiotics to animals. Buffalo and HF/Jersery cows give more milk but their immune system is very weak so to keep them healthy, antibiotics are given. So antibiotics are part of your milk.”
Not only milk, honey, butter milk, certain vegetables and fruits – all are treated by antibiotics. Even so called organic labelled food!

Solution?
1) Support ethical Gau shala. Use milk as medicine (i.e. limited quantity) and not as a food.
2) Don’t crave for commercial honey and milk
3) Support ethical honey. Use it as medicine and not as a food.

Repeated Antibiotics will hamper Child’s development

Antibiotics

In one of my debate with doctor friend, he posed this question to me: “What is the issue with amoxicillin (Antibiotics) ? Will you die if you take it? They are needed.”

Well, what if I present at least 50 plant based alternatives which act as bacterial control solution and that too intelligently and targeting only non-body, non-utility bacteria as a preventive care? And they have no side effects!

Read this research news to learn what antibiotics do to growing children.

“A new animal study adds to growing evidence that multiple courses of commonly used antibiotics may have a significant impact on children’s development. Female mice treated with two classes of widely used childhood antibiotics, including amoxicillin, gained more weight and developed larger bones than untreated mice. Both of the antibiotics also disrupted the gut microbiome, the trillions of microbes that inhabit the intestinal tract.”

For children, I suggest:

1) Take advice from pediatrician and not any other ordinary doctor who is not well-versed with micro-observations about kids.
2) Choose such pediatrician who is well-versed with symptoms of viral and bacterial infection. Most doctors give antibiotics unnecessary for viral infections. No antibiotics needed for viral infection.
3) Focus more on your kid’s food habits. What to eat and what not to. Be strict with school authorities. They often serve unhealthy food. Sometimes they serve it without intention but due to mass-handling of food, it happens.
4) Let your kid exposed to natural environment. More visits to river, jungle, mountain, trekking. Let them play in dirt. Help them build immune system.
5) Include lemon, turmeric, ginger based juice in daily routine during fragile seasons like monsoon and winter.

Be more preventive rather reactive!!

Repeated Courses of Antibiotics May Profoundly Alter Children’s Development

New study in mice from NYU Langone Medical Center finds multiple, long-lasting effects after several courses of antibiotics commonly used in children

http://www.newswise.com/articles/repeated-courses-of-antibiotics-may-profoundly-alter-children-s-development

In the study, to be published online June 30 by the journal Nature Communications, female mice treated with two classes of widely used childhood antibiotics gained more weight and developed larger bones than untreated mice. Both of the antibiotics also disrupted the gut microbiome, the trillions of microbes that inhabit the intestinal tract.

Overall, the mice received three short courses of amoxicillin (a broad-spectrum antibiotic), tylosin (which isn’t used in children but represents another common antibiotic class called the macrolides, which is increasingly popular in pediatrics), or a mixture of both drugs. To mimic the effects of pediatric antibiotic use, the researchers gave the animals the same number of prescriptions and the same therapeutic dose that the average child receives in the first two years of life. A control group of mice received no drugs at all.

Antibiotics and side effects : unthinkable consequences

Antibiotics and side effects : unthinkable consequences.

Antibiotics
Take care. 🙁 Avoid. Avoid. Avoid. (Y)
 
Scientists now suspect that antibiotic use, and especially overuse, can have unwanted effects on everything from the immune system to glucose metabolism, food absorption, obesity, stress and behavior.
 
Antibiotics don’t only kill bacteria, They also kill intestinal epithelium. Destruction of the intestinal epithelium is important because this is the site of nutrient absorption, part of our immune system and it has other biological functions that play a role in human health.
 
The research also found that antibiotics and antibiotic-resistant microbes caused significant changes in mitochondrial function, which in turn can lead to more epithelial cell death.
 
Digestive dysfunction is near the top of the list, with antibiotic use linked to such issues as diarrhea and ulcerative colitis. But new research is also finding links to obesity, food absorption, depression, immune function, sepsis, allergies and asthma.
 

Unwanted impact of antibiotics broader, more complex than previously known

CORVALLIS, Ore. – Researchers at Oregon State University have discovered that antibiotics have an impact on the microorganisms that live in an animal’s gut that’s more broad and complex than previously known.

The findings help to better explain some of the damage these medications can do, and set the stage for new ways to study and offset those impacts.

The work was published online in the journal Gut, in research supported by Oregon State University, the Medical Research Foundation of Oregon and the National Institutes of Health.

Researchers have known for some time that antibiotics can have unwanted side effects, especially in disrupting the natural and beneficial microbiota of the gastrointestinal system. But the new study helps explain in much more detail why that is happening, and also suggests that powerful, long-term antibiotic use can have even more far-reaching effects.

Scientists now suspect that antibiotic use, and especially overuse, can have unwanted effects on everything from the immune system to glucose metabolism, food absorption, obesity, stress and behavior.

The issues are rising in importance, since 40 percent of all adults and 70 percent of all children take one or more antibiotics every year, not to mention their use in billions of food animals. Although when used properly antibiotics can help treat life-threatening bacterial infections, more than 10 percent of people who receive the medications can suffer from adverse side effects.

“Just in the past decade a whole new universe has opened up about the far-reaching effects of antibiotic use, and now we’re exploring it,” said Andrey Morgun, an assistant professor in the OSU College of Pharmacy. “The study of microbiota is just exploding. Nothing we find would surprise me at this point.”

This research used a “cocktail” of four antibiotics frequently given to laboratory animals, and studied the impacts.

“Prior to this most people thought antibiotics only depleted microbiota and diminished several important immune functions that take place in the gut,” Morgun said. “Actually that’s only about one-third of the picture. They also kill intestinal epithelium. Destruction of the intestinal epithelium is important because this is the site of nutrient absorption, part of our immune system and it has other biological functions that play a role in human health.”

Overuse of Medicines: Cutting branch of the tree while sitting on it

70% to 90% of what you call as your ‘Body’ is non-human i.e. Bacteria. They reside on every inch of your skin, in your mouth, nose, and ears, in your esophagus, stomach, and especially your gut. Women have a rich assortment of bacteria in the vagina.

So when we talk about antibiotic drugs, we are actually talking about raging war against self i.e. 90% of our body i.e. Bacteria 😀.

Think about it.

Bad bacteria, pathogenic bacteria, Predator bacteria, deadly virus, killer virus, super bug…endless terms to define Nature’s little creations.
If you live significant life with mother nature, you will realize, like I did in past decade, that there is nothing absolutely good or bad.

Based on situation, place, time, season, bacteria are either compatible with individual body, and able to exist and perform actions in harmonious or agreeable combination, or incompatible ones who just cannot mingle with specific state of human body.

Our goal should be to regain compatible state, as early as possible so that we all ( I and my bacteria friends) can live together happily.
Viruses anyhow are benign and not harmful.

It will be revolution in medical field if we get rid of all terms starting with “anti-” prefix. No Life form is against anyone. Everyone cooperates heartily. It is just human with free will that disregards duties

If just live life as per needs and nature of our body, sickness becomes alien concept.

PS: “Cutting branch of the tree while sitting on it” is a wellknow story from the works of Kalidasa. Do explore 🙂
