Antibiotics and the Immune System

///Antibiotics and the Immune System

We often see that people go to the doctor’s office with the Flu, Cold or other respiratory concerns and end up with an antibiotic prescription. Inherently, we get so used to it and don’t see anything wrong with it.

There are some points to keep in mind:

  1. Antibiotics don’t work for viral conditions!
  2. Antibiotics will kill bacteria (good and bad).
  3. Only by a lab test, a Dr. can know what antibiotic to prescribe.
  4. Lastly, you can harm yourself more seriously.

“The University of Washington found that if you filled twenty-five or more prescriptions for antibiotics over seventeen years, you doubled your risk of developing cancer.” Even women who had between one and 25 prescriptions over the same time period were about 1.5 times more likely to get breast cancer. Lifestyle factors certainly need to be accounted for in this study. Antibiotics can affect bacteria in the intestine, which may impact how certain foods that might prevent cancer are broken down in the body. Antibiotics may also affect the body’s immune response and response to inflammation, which could also be related to the development of cancer” Journal of the American Medical Association February 18, 2004;291(7):827-35 – Time, Dec 6, 2004,

“Infants exposed to one single round of antibiotics during their first year of life are twice as likely to develop asthma as those who don’t. The more courses of antibiotics, the worse the immunity and the greater the risk of asthma.”  –Newsday, March 6, 2006

“Antibiotics don’t just lead to an increase in the risk of asthma. Antibiotics destroy our normal flora, which has severe adverse effects on the immune system function, digestion and absorption, and vitamin production. This adversely affects the function of every cell in the human ecosystem and significantly contributes to the development of illness. Deficiency in our normal flora also leads to the colonization of pathogenic flora, especially yeast and gram-negative bacteria.” –Dr. James L. Chestnut

“Researchers attempted to study how long the ill effects of antibiotics last by studying people for six months. At the end of six months, people still showed low resistance and poor immunity, leading the researchers to conclude that they have no idea how long-lasting or how damaging the effects of antibiotics truly are.”  – The Clinical Advisor, April 2007

“In our almost messianic quest to wipe out childhood disease through injections, antibiotics and fever-reducing drugs – medical doctors have produced a wasteland of children who are literally chronically sick and tired, spending lives feeling uncomfortable in their untransformed skins. It is as if we have prevented caterpillars from becoming butterflies because the time of immobility as a chrysalis can be dangerous. Well it is dangerous, at least a little, but it is more dangerous—in fact deadly—to never allow a child to fulfill his or her destiny and become a butterfly We urgently need to respect the transformative power of illness, to pluck up our courage and not succumb to those who promise better health through injecting us with poisons, or harsh anti-life medicines that become less and less effective. And more than anything we need to believe in the healing powers of our children’s bodies, so we can give them the gift of confidence in their own strength as they embark on the challenges of adulthood.” –Thomas Cowan, M.D.

“People under regular chiropractic care (adjusted) have 200-400% better immune competence.”  – Fibelibus, J. JMPT, Aug 1989

That’s why many people can testify that they get sick less when they are regularly adjusted! If you want to be well, Simply, we can’t afford missing an adjustment!

Here are few tips for you:

  1. Get Adjusted at least once or twice a week! REGULARLY!
  2. Eat at least 5 different Fruits and 7 different vegetables. DAILY!.
