Whether you’ve been treated recently for a bacterial infection, or have been consuming large quantities of animal products, you likely have residual antibiotics in your system. Antibiotics can keep your body’s digestive system from functioning properly by killing off the good bacteria found in your mouth, colon and stomach. Antibiotics have been linked to birth defects when ingested by pregnant mothers, and are being blamed for antibiotic-resistant superbugs. Eliminating excess antibiotics from your system can restore digestive balance and help your immune system fight disease.
Eliminate The Source
The first step to getting antibiotics out of your system is to stop ingesting them. Animal products that are not organically produced have usually been treated with antibiotics, often shortly before the reach market. This includes dairy, eggs, meat, farm-raised fish and processed foods that contain animal products as ingredients. Never take prescription antibiotics unless you know have a bacterial infection. Antibiotics do not work on viruses.
Eat Plenty of Anti-Oxidant-Rich Foods And Vitamin C
Anti oxidants can enhance your immune system to help your liver flush antibiotic remnants from your cells and blood. You can reap the benefits of anti-oxidants by eating fruits and vegetables such as blueberries, prunes, bell peppers (red and green), stramberries, broccoli and beans. Eat at least two or three serving of these foods daily. You can also get anti-oxidants from vitamin C supplements. The recommended dosage for Vitamin C is one 500mg tablet once a day.

7. Vitamin C
Drink at least two liters of clean water every day. Drinking enough Water can help your liver and kidneys flush out the remnants of antibiotics and increase your metabolism while keeping your cells healthy. Always drink filtered or bottled water to avoid the harmful elements in tap water.
Take Garlic in Capsule Form
Allicin is the active ingredient in garlic that can help your kidneys and liver flush out toxins while cleaning your blood. The recommended dosage for garlic is one 500 mg capsule every day with food. For maximum benefit, you can also add garlic to your main dishes.
Restore The Beneficial Bacteria
Antibiotics kill not only the bad bacteria that cause disease, but also the good bacteria, especially intestinal bacteria (lactobacilli) that maintin your digestive system. Yogurt contains millions of lactobacilli that can help replenish the ones that the antibiotics killed. Consume natural yogurt on an empty stomach for maximum benefit.
Exercise that elevate your core temperature and increase your heart and respiratory rates will help your body to eliminate toxins such as antibiotics by forcing them out of your tissues and into your elliminatory system. Core excercises that stimulate the muscles surrounding your vital organs will encourage blood circulation to the organs. Your blood carries oxygen and nutrients to your cells and carries away toxins and metabolic waste.
