    Hi Y'all,

    I got sick in vietnam from the water and went on antibiotics. Since then I feel sick again. I felt fully recovered for about 2 years I think and now I feel like my symptoms are back.

    I'm thinking it could be yeast although I was only on ciprio for a week. Does this seem possible? Anyone know?

    Also, I was wonderinig if olive leaf extract would wipe out the good bacteria?

    We should take high-quality probiotics all the time and double up on them when we are taking ABX. I've been taking probiotics for more than 20 years just to keep my gut healthy and prevent Leaky Gut Syndrome, a serious condition. PBS has an excellent program on this done by a nurse practitioner.

    Last week, I was put on both Flagyl and Bactrim ABX and had no gut problems from them nor yeast. This week, I'm on Augmentum and tolerate it with no gut problems. The 2 1/2 yrs. I was on Doxycycline, I also had no problems. Probiotics are the answer to soooo many things. Immunity begins in the gut.

    Love, Mikie
