From Mercola.com: Why Taking Antibiotics During Pregnancy is a Bad Idea
Take that link above to read the full article…
Unfortunately, studies show that a growing number of women have unknown vaginal infections at childbirth, which can result in the passage of abnormal microflora onto their babies. This introduction of unfriendly flora, combined with antibiotic use, can predispose a baby to GAPS (Gut and Psychology Syndrome, and also Gut and Physiology Syndrome). GAPS can have very damaging long-term effects on a child’s health, both neurologically and physiologically, predisposing him or her to:
|Autism, ADHD/ADD and learning disabilities, such as dyslexia||Arthritis||Asthma and allergies|
|Mood disorders, such as depression and bipolar disorder||Skin problems||Kidney problems|
|Schizophrenia||Digestive ailments||Autoimmune disorders|
GAPS may have profound implications for the autism epidemic. Rates of childhood autism are staggering, now 50 times higher in some areas than three decades ago. Not surprisingly, there is a matching epidemic of GAPS. Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride is a neurologist and neurosurgeon who has devoted years of her career to studying this phenomenon, and how to treat and prevent it. To learn more, please listen to the interview featured in my previous article How a Physician Cured Her Son’s Autism.
In this follow-up interview, she discusses the physiological aspect of GAPS, and its impact on autoimmune disease and allergies.
