Probiotics vs Antibiotic

By- Mary Ellen Sanders Ph.D

The International Scientific Association for Probiotics and Prebiotics (ISAPP) initiated a project this fall to determine if probiotics can reduce antibiotic use. In the context of an individual person, reduced antibiotic use means fewer adverse effects, reduced chance to develop antibiotic resistant pathogens, reduced time to recovery and lower medical cost. In the context of society, reduced antibiotic use means less chance that antibiotic resistant pathogens – which can be difficult to control – will develop and threaten society at large.

Governments are recognizing the importance of policy that improves antibiotic stewardship. For example, European Antibiotic Awareness Day supports national campaigns on the prudent use of antibiotics.

During the 2016 ISAPP meeting in Turku, Finland, Drs. Dan Merenstein from Georgetown University and Irene Lenoir-Wijnkoop from University of Utrecht and Danone Research, led a working group to discuss the strength of evidence to support probiotics for common upper respiratory tract infections (URTIs). Probiotics are generally safe and have

Probiotics are generally safe and have increasing strength of evidence supporting their role in prevention and reducing duration of common URTIs. Evidence is accumulating but not definitive for the role of probiotics in URTIs.

Available evidence was summarize.. In a Cochrane meta-analysis (Hao et al. 2015), which included 12 studies evaluating the role of probiotics for URTIs. This review found that probiotic use for 3 to 8 months could result in 11 fewer people out of 100 developing an URTI. This review also found moderate quality evidence that taking probiotics reduces the duration of a URTI by close to 2 days.

The financial impact of these effects was considered. Through economic models for both France and Canada (Lenoir-Wijnkoop et al, 2014; 2016), which concluded that significant cost savings through

This review also found moderate quality evidence that taking probiotics reduces the duration of a URTI by close to 2 days. The financial impact of these effects was considered, through economic models. For both France and Canada.(Lenoir-Wijnkoop et al, 2014; 2016), which concluded those significant cost savings. through impact on URTIs would be realized by widespread probiotic use.

It was noteworthy that the Cochrane review also suggested that probiotics could reduce antibiotic prescriptions. At a rate of 7 fewer people in 100. This finding prompted a proposal to conduct a systematic review and meta-analysis designed with a primary endpoint to determine the impact of probiotics on antibiotic use.

This project is currently underway, supported in part by ISAPP and also by the volunteer efforts of many experts. The results of the study will be published regardless of the findings.

But if robust evidence is found that. Probiotics can reduce antibiotic use. ISAPP will approach authoritative bodies such as the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. The American Academy of Family Physicians. The American academy of Pediatrics and the United States Prevention Services task force with the evidence with the hope of influencing adoption of probiotic as part of recommendations and policy on antibiotic stewardship.

How you ended up in the world of alternative and complementary health?
What started as a curiosity evolved into a life-long passion.

As a Texas boy, I grew up with a love of the outdoors and all the physicality associated with living on a farm. You’d think with this upbringing I’d end up a cowboy. But instead, I went to college and got a job in corporate America as an insurance adjuster.
I worked with patients who sustained injuries. By reviewing their insurance claims, I was able to follow health journeys. This gave me a unique perspective into the inner workings of conventional medicine. I saw that typical treatments like surgery and prescription medications never addressed underlying causes. They’re simply a profitable way of treating symptoms. Instead of curing or preventing health problems, our medical system is focused on managing diseases. As a result, millions of people live shorter, less productive lives and suffer needlessly.
That’s when I decided to switch tracks. I went back to school to study biochemistry, nutrition, acupuncture, chiropractic, and less conventional therapies that focus on returning the body to its natural state of health.
It’s been the most amazing, pivotal decision of my life. Since that life-changing move, I’ve treated (and even cured) thousands of patients of various conditions; started writing my newsletter, Alternatives, to share valuable health information with thousands more across the globe; and have traveled the world—from Nicaragua to Cuba, Australia, the Far East, and beyond—to find innovative herbs and natural solutions to prevent and cure some of the most common problems that conventional medicine fails to fix.
These are the things I will share with you in the coming weeks, and that I hope will lead you on a path toward truly excellent health.
