Many parents have come to my office and told me some rendition of this story. "My son had many ear infections as a baby. As a result he has had 3 or 4 rounds of antibiotics. This all began at the age of 1 when he began daycare. He was speaking at that time but around 18 months he lost all his words." There is a vicious cycle that begins with the overuse of antibiotics and the inevitable destruction of our healthy intestinal flora. Antibiotics throw off the balance of our "good" bacteria which provide protection against fungal and parasitic infections, help break down food and synthesize certain vitamins. This disruption of flora allows pathogenic yeast (Candida Albicans) to thrive, damage our intestinal wall, contribute to leaky gut and cause troubling and seemingly unrelated symptoms to arise. If this is a familiar story then you need to test your son or daughter for yeast overgrowth and get to the root cause of their problems.
