This programme on antibiotic use (below link) re-screened Sunday 11th June on Prime TV.
It investigates the rise of antibiotic resistance and its ‘super-bug’ consequences. It will make you question the relevance of antibiotic use in relation to your own long-term health and the significance & impact of our history of over prescribing antibiotics.
Gut problems are a common complaint in the Mint Nutrition clinic & Antibiotic use (or misuse) is definitely part of the picture often so we thought this documentary was worth spreading.
It’s a very relevant documentary looking at Kiwi’s who have already encountered these super- bugs. It strongly aligns with the Mint Nutrition Clinic’s functional medicine matrix of looking at your body system’s & risk factors to join the dots between all your symptoms. This includes the gut which plays a big role in both prevention and potential treatment of this referenced ‘antibiotic apocalypse’ through the identification of pathogenic bacteria & gut flora.
If you identify with the following symptoms then contact our Clinical Nutritionist’s Jane or Claudia who will discuss the testing options & treatment required to restore the guts natural defences, structure, function & motility to restore your health & immunity.
