While on antibiotics, a person should take a “probiotic”. The antibiotic kills all the good bacteria in your gut, and you get diarrhea, cramps, bloating. Acidophilus (or other probiotics) will help replace the good bacteria. This is also a very effective treatment for diarrhea caused by the “stomach flu”. Acidophilus is present in yogurt, but most containers don’t tell you how much. I prefer to take acidophilus capsules. For the kids, you can get liquid, powder or chewable versions. Most good health food stores will carry this.
“If someone is on antibiotics………three times per day…how much yogurt should be eaten daily to prevent the killing of “good” bacteria?”
