Is there a connection? Researchers from the Karolinska Institute in Sweden think so because they found people with celiac disease were more likely to have used antibiotics in the year before their diagnosis.
Celiacs were more likely to have been prescribed multiple courses of antibiotics.
We know that antibiotics cause derangement in the intestinal microbiome leaving individuals more prone to bacterial overgrowth, new infections and changed gut-brain signaling.
Of course, celiacs must have a primary component in place - genes for celiac. Once the flora is destroyed by the antibiotics then genetic expression comes to life and that individual who never suspected a gluten intolerance quickly develops an inflammatory response. What was once tolerated is no longer.
At Second Nature, we test and treat celiac patients. We offer alternative antibiotics with Xymogen's Candicidal and Berbemycin products. Our functional stool analysis from Genova is still one of the best tests available to get an accurate functional gut picture.
We find underlying issues that are not picked up on in the standard colonoscopy. Our patients recover with my GOOD GUT program, enzymatic treatment, and dietary changes.
