Do you take antidepressants or do you know someone that does? Are you concerned about how those pills may interfere with your gut health?

I had two people ask me recently whether they should stop taking antidepressants and focus on a significant amount of pharmaceutical grade probiotics or whether probiotics could ultimately become a substitute for antidepressants. My answer is/was/always will be, 100% no. Probiotics are not medicine or pharmaceutical drugs. They don't need to be prescribed by a physician, and in most instances are not used to get your body to do or not do something it is supposed to do. Probiotics are simply living organisms (bacteria) and part of living foods that go to enhance and nourish your overall well-being and gut health.

On the inside of that tube are these little like toothbrush type bristles that line all of inside of the tube.

It seems there is no more of a toxic word in American lexicon than that of the word, "Vaccinations". It's important to note this post is not taking a pro-vaccine or anti-vaccine stance. It's simply to look at it from a non-linear perspective and completely from a digestive standpoint.⠀
So let's first ask the question, "What is a vaccine?" A vaccine is when you inject a bacterial or virus in your body so that your body responds by creating the proper antibodies in your immune system. The thought is that by creating the antibodies in response to the vaccine, the body would be better able to "defend" itself form the virus. That's the idea of how a vaccine should and would work in "normal" situations. ⠀
