Antibiotics suck!! They will kill only a very limited range of parasites and make some antibiotic resistant. If you want parasites killed check out Miracle Krystal Salt, it is the most amazing, simple and cheap thing you could ever do for your health.
I would think antibiotics would make your body a nice place for them since your immune system would be so weakened and your body very acid. I know antibiotics DON'T kill them, because I have had a terrible parasite problem since I took them a couple years ago.
I agree with everyone-- the antibiotics also kill good bacterias-as well as bad bacteria, so they may kill good bacteria that would normally fight larvea stages of parasites. They may not have an effect on mature parasites, but there is a reason we have GOOD bacteria in our guts. Its too kill off bad things-- including the embryonic stages of parasites that havent reached visible stage yet.
Not to mention-- that antibiotics allow Candidas to thrive-- and with this in our bodies- the existing parasites have a field day!
Soo that is why it is especially necessary to replenish your GOOD Bacteria with PROBIOTICS!! Probiotics are designed especially for people just coming off of Anti-Biotics--to prevent grief later!
Kefir is especially good for this. Yogurt is good- but acidophilus is not the best of all the probiotics out there.
I would go to your healthfood store and purchase a good probiotic. Dont be afraid to spend $25.00 or so for it either- it will be worth it and save you grief and $ in the long run.
Yes, take it from me - I took tetracycline for 6 years! Little did I know what I was doing at the time. If you think like I did "oh well when I stop taking it, the good bacteria will flourish again" then watch it! It takes effort to put the good bacteria back. And the truth is, pro-biotics, while good and important don't all STAY with you - you have to take them for a long time and research the ones that WILL colonize your body, because a lot, most actually, get killed by the stomach before they even get to the intestinal tract.
Not trying to scare you - if you're on antibiotics for a specific purpose for a short time - well it's not like me being on them for 6 years straight. However, depending on the antibiotic and the person, sometimes all it takes is one or two rounds. So if you must take them for a bit, do eat yogurt and do take pro-biotics. One of the known probiotics to actually take hold and colonize your digestitve tract is Lactobacillus GG, but remember, there are over 300 beneficial bacteria down there.
Antibiotics have their purpose, but don't stay on them any longer than necessary. They will NOT help in the long run with parasites.
