Early Antibiotics linked to Future Allergies

[fa icon="calendar'] Sep 13, 2016 5:00:00 AM / by Dr. Isadora Guggenheim



If you get antibiotics early in life you are more likely to have an increased risk for

Hay Fever and Eczema according to a pooled analysis from a researcher who reported his findings at the European Respiratory Society International Congress in 2016.

"Dr. Ahmadizar noted that several previous studies have found a link between early life exposure to antibiotics and an increased risk for developing allergies later in life, but the research has been inconsistent. In subgroup analyses, there was no statistically significant effect of patient age at both time of antibiotic use and time of allergy diagnosis on these associations. The association was stronger for both eczema and hay fever when patients had been treated with two or more courses, compared with one course of antibiotics."

The risk increases with more than one course of antibiotics. Unfortunately, most Americans by age 18 have had between 12-14 courses of antibiotics which are known to disrupt the intestinal microbiome. And overuse is a worldwide problem that has caused the creation of superbugs or antibiotic-resistant pathogens.

We offer safe and natural treatments for allergies. I.V. ozone in NY is great for reducing inflammation from allergies and killing pathogens that cause infections. There are general and specific oral nutraceuticals and liquid RX homeopathics for allergies. We have desensitization protocols that work instead of the standard allergy injections. We correct your gut flora to stop the inflammatory cascade. Xymogen makes a great general anti-allergy formula called AllerDHQ.
