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.

Can you identify with the following symptoms?

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.
