Superbugs can wreak havoc on your gut health, compromising your digestion and your immunity.
The worst part is that they often spread like wildfire, especially among school-going kids and working adults. A superbug will definitely put you out of commission and you won’t even enjoy the time off as you’ll be groaning and tossing in bed while trying to heal the condition.
When it comes to superbugs, you want to avoid developing them at all.
Here’s how to stop superbugs in their tracks:
- Reduce your reliance on antibiotics and only use them when absolutely necessary. In fact, antibiotics should be the absolute last resort in any situation.
- If you do need to use antibiotics, take them as prescribed, and make sure you go through with the full course of medication.
- Avoid antibacterial soaps, and instead, stick to normal soap and water to wash your hands.
- Avoid consuming factory-farmed meats because the animals are often pumped with antibiotics that are then passed on to your body. Opt for organic and grass-fed meats instead or reduce your consumption overall.
