Why My Doctor Told Me To Eat Yogurt while taking Antibiotics !?


Why did my doctor say to eat yogurt when I take antibiotics?

My doctor said I should eat yogurt when i am taking my antibiotics but I don’t like yogurt. Why did she say I should eat yogurt? Do I really need too?

Antibiotics work by killing bacteria that are causing an infection. However, they also tend to kill other good, beneficial bacteria at the same time, such as the normal bacteria that live in the intestines and in the vagina. Killing off these good bacteria leads to many of the major side effects of antibiotics, such as diarrhea and vaginal yeast infections. Yogurt in theory can protect against some of these side effects because it contains a number of species of ‘good bacteria’ which can replace the good bacteria that are killed off by the antibiotic, thereby preventing diarrhea and yeast infections. However, the scientific studies that have examined the actual benefit of eating yogurt as a preventative measure have been mixed. In short, eating yogurt may help you prevent these side effects while taking antibiotics, but the beneficial effect is probably pretty small, and there is no compelling reason to do it if there is another reason not to (such as really disliking yogurt). Nevertheless, what you should definitely do is stay in close contact with your primary care doctorwhile you are taking the antibiotics. If you develop any significant side effects, you should touch base with them right away!

Institut ANCA Welcome You for a Holistic Massage along With Hypnose Induction Techniques !!!


One of the first questions I get asked about holistic massage is “What does holistic mean?” Holistic means ‘whole’ (it has Greek roots for those interested in the Etymology!). So this form of massage deals with you as a ‘whole’. Like other therapies, it is not just looking to treat the symptoms, but to establish the cause, whether it be internal or external. The aim is to rebalance the body so it achieves homeostasis or balance. The training for the therapist is quite extensive, as it not only covers massage, but also anatomy and physiology, nutrition and general health.

What Happens When I Go For A Holistic Massage

At the first consultation with your therapist, you will be asked to complete a detailed health questionnaire. This will take about 45 minutes as it goes over every aspect of your health, family history and lifestyle, what goes in your body and yes, what comes out the other end! From this information the therapist can put together a profile for you and tailor the massage to suit. The therapist keeps a note of each treatment, which for you means that after a few visits you can come in, ‘flop’ down on the couch and the therapist knows what you need.

What Are The Health Benefits Of Holistic Massage Therapy

Massage benefits are both mind and body. It is rare that we take an hour to lie down, close our eyes and just ‘be’. An hour’s peace and quiet away from ringing phones and demanding children has a definite restorative effect.

For the body, the massage helps taut muscles learn to relax and this, combined with strokes to aid lymphatic drainage, helps to release toxins. The benefits can be felt by all ages, backgrounds and lifestyles. According to the Massage Association, research has verified that office workers massaged regularly were more alert, performed better and were less stressed than those who weren’t massaged. It is not just office workers who benefit. Stress affects different people in a myriad of ways, physically and emotionally. Stiffness and soreness in muscles can be due to a wide range of physical factors from an overly energetic session in the gym or carrying too much shopping home, to poor posture through being seated at a desk all day or excessive time behind the steering wheel. The causes are not always physical however. Emotional tension and the day to day stresses that life throws at us can manifest in headaches caused by a stiff neck and shoulders and the body generally tensing up in response to stress, especially if there is not the opportunity to release. Massage can help people to deal with emotional problems such as grief and depression. Some massage therapists specialise in pregnant women (‘doula’ massage), attending the birth to enable a drug free delivery. Young babies and children benefit from massage – stroking and touch are a great way for parent and child to bond. Children with autism have been shown to respond well to cranial massage.
