The CDC currently attributes vaccines and antibiotics as the two major milestones of modern medicine. Many of us have taken a more critical attitude towards vaccines, but the reputation of antibiotics is still mostly untarnished. Few dare to confront the possibility that the germ theory of disease is highly overrated, that a strong natural immune system is vital for maintaining a healthy “inner terrain” capable of resisting disease, and that maybe Pasteur (father of the "germ theory") was a celebrity scientist hack who was off the mark. Chemotherapy kills cancer cells and healthy cells. Many official cancer deaths are actually chemo deaths, and those who survive chemotherapy are likely to experience cancer again, often within five years. Antibiotics create a similar scenario. They wipe out all microbes in their path, including the more recently discovered “good bacteria” that are now known to be a large part of our immune system. In other words, they harm our immune systems, paving the way for future infections. Not only that, there are definite connections between our gut probiotic colonies and the nervous system. Antibiotics also adversely affect our nervous systems by wiping out the probiotic gut colonies that many are calling our “second brain” because they communicate with the central nervous system. For starters, we need a healthy gut microbiome or internal ecosystem to maintain health regardless of external conditions. A large portion of necessary gut microbiota bacteria gets wiped out from antibiotic use, sometimes permanently.
