Here’s an interesting one. I had a very interesting question from a lady in Australia about a week ago and she was asking me if it was okay to take antibiotics with autoimmune disease.
It’s not okay. You’ve already got an immune system in crisis. It’s attacking parts of the body. Now you’re going to take a drug that’s anti-life, anti-biosis. Now you’re going to take a drug that’s going to undermine and destroy and trash your digestive system. So, you’re basically, you’re just going from the frying pan into the fire. You’re making it much worse for yourself.
Once you take an antibiotic, you set up a chain reaction where millions and millions of bacteria die and they get killed off. In fact, many people, researchers found who take an antibiotic, end up with an inflammatory condition in their gut. And remember, you’ve already got an inflammatory condition.

So it’s like me coming to your house when you’re going to barbecue and asking if I can put a bucket of gasoline on top of it just to get it working a bit better. That’s what we’re doing here. So, we’re over overstimulating the immune system. We’re going to create a crisis for the immune system, which is already in crisis. You’re going to feel more sick, more tired. You’re going to have more hospital visits. Don’t do it. Don’t take antibiotics when you got autoimmune disease, talk to your doctor about it, okay? Argue with your doctor. Go and get a second opinion. Go to a naturopathic physician. You don’t need to take antibiotics for autoimmune conditions. All right? It does nothing for them. Especially when you go recurrently round after round, after round.
I can tell you guys, I’ve had so many patients that got put on antibiotic, sometimes daily for one to two years, I mean that’s just, to me that’s like Russian Roulette. The doctor sends you home with a handgun. I mean literally that’s what they’re doing. They’re basically killing you slowly. All right?
I don’t think guns kill you slowly, though, do they? I think pretty quickly. But you know what I mean? You’re undermining your gut and as the gut becomes more undermined, the bacteria go down further, immunity erodes further. You’ll feel really, really bad.
I know because I’ve talked to patients exactly in that position. So, if you have got an autoimmune condition and you are requiring an antibiotic, please look at something natural like grapefruit seed extract. Look at oregano, look at another product. But don’t look at antibiotics because you will pay the price.
