Given the antibiotics will kill everything in their way its best to concentrate on repopulation after you've finished them. I don't think yogurt will really offer enough, kefir would be better. Maybe one month on a multi-strain high count (as in... (more)

There's a difference between taking something as a treatment or for prevention. You're sick. Don't forgo useful medical treatment. Paleo is not anti-medicine.

Contrary to what has always been believed before many researchers now speculate that antibiotics are effective against acne not so much because of their antibacterial effects but more because their anti-inflammatory effect. It's also mistake to... (more)

As soon as I'm done with the antibiotics prescription, I'd start downing all sorts of probiotics (e.g. FloraStor) and fermented foods - fermented by myself if possible. e.g. yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchee, etc.

Given the antifungal, antiviral, and antibacterial properties of coconut oil, would the effectiveness of probiotics be inhibited by coconut oil, even if the two are taken at the same time? What about if they are spaced out a few hours?

Does anyone know if the antibiotics usually used to treat non-organic cows are able to pass through the cow's blood-brain barrier? I am interested because if this is the case, one wouldn't need to locate an organic source of cow brain.

The prions from mad cow disease alone ought to dissuade you from eating CAFO cow brain. I really have no faith in the USDA or the factory farms themselves to completely eradicate BSE.
