*This Week’s HOT TOPIC at the Stomach Issue’s Forum* – Responses to My Forum Question are Greatly Appreciated!
Has Any Doctor Ever Even Warned You? If you haven't read my article about Clostridium difficile, please do. It's a dangerous bacterial intestinal infection, and the major cause of antibiotic associated diarrhea and pseudomembranous colitis. It is becoming a growing problem even among otherwise healthy people, becoming more resistant to antibiotic treatments, and its toxins are becoming significantly more potent. C. diff can be deadly, and it has, and will, kill many people. I almost died as a child from C. diff as a result of almost two months of misdiagnosis.
My question to all of you is, had you heard of C. diff before now? I am sure EVERYONE has at some point taken a broad-spectrum antibiotic, and maybe when they didn't even need it. So, did your doctor warn you about developing C. diff and/or the importance of trying to replenish the beneficial flora in your digestive tract while on antibiotic therapy? I am really curious about this, and I would like to receive as many responses as possible.

If you are interested in, or currently practice homeopathy and alternative medicine, it is important to start a collection of remedies (if you haven’t already) in your home so that you have them during the first onset of symptoms. Homeopathy is very safe and effective, and especially effective during this time. To help you with your collection, I normally list any homeopathic remedies I have referenced in my topics at the bottom of my articles, so that you can easily and cost-effectively add them to your collection. Any remedy that I recommend you purchase, I myself own, and personally use for the specific symptom(s) it is intended for.
