How do you build up your immune system after long term antibiotics?
I have been on different anitbiotics for over 4 months trying to get rid of broncitis, each time I finish a course of them I am feeling great but a week later it comes back.

As you probably know by now, antibiotics suppress your immune system, may remove some symptoms but does not address the real problem.

A strong immune system will prevent sickness and also help your recover quickly if you get ill.

Here are some suggestions in solving your problem.
1) Take some probiotics to build up the good bacteria in your intestines.

2) Eliminate all sugar and allergens from your diet.
Just a small amount of sugar has been proven to impair white blood cells up to 50% for very short periods of time. By discovering what our personal food allergies are, then eliminating or desensitizing them will help strengthen your immune system. By removing these triggers, our immune cells are strengthened in order to combat other invaders such as influenza rather than the allergen. The elimination of sugar from your diet can also strengthen immune system.

3) Strengthen your immune system with proper nutrition, eliminate toxins in your body (body cleanse), have moderate activity (exercise), get plenty of rest, and drink sufficient water.

Also, eat good nutritious foods like organic fruits and vegetables, chloretta, medicinal mushrooms like maitake, shiitake, reishi, or turkey tail.
Besides water, wheat grass juice, aloe vera juice, or green tea are good drinks.
Some herbs that are good include echinacea, goldenseal or garlic. A good source of antioxidants include Vitamin A, C, or E. The minerals zinc and selenium also help with strengthening your immune system.

Fire Side Water Side
The best thing to do is start eating foods to get the vitamins you need to help your immune system bounce back.

Vitamin C
Vitamin E
Omega-3 fatty acids


2 cups milk or soy or rice beverage
1 cup plain nonfat yogurt
1 serving of a multinutrient supplement
one frozen banana, cut up
1/2 cup frozen blueberries
1/2 cup each of your favorite fruit, frozen (e.g., organic strawberries, papaya, mango)
1 tbsp. flax oil or 2 tbsp. flaxseed meal (Because fiber steadies the absorption of carbohydrates and therefore contributes to a steadier blood sugar we suggest using rich sources of fiber, such as flaxseed meal (i.e., ground flax seeds, containing both the oil and fiber), although flax oil has a more palatable consistency than flaxseed meal. For additional fiber, if you don't mind an even grainier texture, add 1 tbsp. or more of oat bran.)
3 ounces tofu
10 mg. zinc
100 mcg. selenium
50-100 IU vitamin E
1 serving soy isolate powder (optional)
2 tbsp. peanut butter (optional)

Antibiotics kill your good flora and are immune suppressants.

You are infested with what is normally a friendly flora called Candida Albicans. It eats the most powerful antibiotics as nourishment.

You need glyconutrients as there is a triple blind placebo study showing how a specific brand of glyconutrients had a 98% kill of Candida.

You also need a broad spectrum flora to replace what is missing in your digestive track.

Also, you need antioxidants for cell repair and phytosterols to instigate your own bodies natural anti inflammatory to help open up you bronchi area and to help repair damaged cells.

The life of a red blood cell is four months, so its a commitment for cellular restoration.

That's what I did when I had chronic bronchitis, asthma, allergies, and post nasal drip.

One extremely important thing is to build up some of the good bacteria in your intestines that the antibiotics have been killing off. Probiotics are available, which have the good bacteria essential for digestion and overall health. Garden of Life, Klaire Labs, and Kirkman (manufacturers) have really good products. You can usually find those at health food stores. These can be taken even when you're not on antibiotics for overall health.

Try eating yogurt and other natural pro-biotics that you can get from your health food store.

Antibiotics helped you recover but lowered your immune. What you have to do is to eat more healthy food with vitamins and high fibre. Build up your immune and get healthier. Good Luck!!

Not trying to diagnose you or anything but be warned. I spent 2 years on different antibiotics being diagnosed with everything from strep throat to bronchitis. When I moved and started at a new doctor in less than 2 weeks a severe mold allergy was discovered. The antibiotics were treating a symptom rather than the cause. A year later and I am still recovering from the antibiotics effects on my system.

As for what you can do towards recovering your natural bacteria. There is a great product PB-8 Probiotic. nutritionnow.com Found it after I had an tooth extracted and they handed me some antibiotic. Can be taken simultaneously and after to help repair the damage to your bodies natural bacteria.

Also, look into other families of antibiotics. After so much penicillin based I had to switch to sulfur based to get any effect. Hope this helps.
