Sorry, I am totally confused by your post. You are suggesting that use of antibitoitcs may cause candida overgrowth and then give two links to support your claim. Is that correct?
The first link is one of many candida links on the web but medically systemic candida is actually a very rare condition, not to be confused with Candidiasis or vaginal thrush which women do commonly suffer from after antibiotic treatment. Candida is one of those “diseases” of the web that quack doctors love selling to gullible people in an attempt to get them to buy all sorts of unneccessaery and worthless “cures”.
The second link however says the opposite of what you are saying and is actuall far more interesting. It says that people who have been users of penicillin appear to hace a reduced risk of developing MS. But that this is still a new area of investigation and warrants further follow up.
Can I suggest you read your links more thoroughly before posting them? But in this case I’m glad you didn’t because this is really interesting. All though not perhaps in the way you intended
“However, in all the analytical scenarios, more than 2 weeks of penicillin use was associated with a 50 percent reduction in the risk of MS.”
And Yvonne, whether you take antibiotics orally or IV won’t alter the bacteria they kill. Broad-spectrum antibiotics are designed to kill a wide range of bacteria indiscriminately including “good” bacteria in our guts. Drs will sometimes take a sample of your infected tissue to identify the type of bacteria and then prescribe a targeted antibiotic, which will only kill those specific bacteria and not other harmless ones. The only benefit of taking antibiotics IV is that they work more quickly and they can be given at a higher dose so for a very severe infection it is the preferred route.
The best way to balance out and replace the “good” bacteria or flora in one’s gut after taking antibiotics is to take a course of probiotics.
And the most dangerous thing about antibiotics is not candida at all but their over use and there fore the emergence of antibiotic resistant superbugs.
