Recently I underwent a procedure where I had to take antibiotics and most of us now know, antibiotics are a totally killer for the good bacteria in your gut. And the gut is EVERYTHING. It affects our mood, mental state, metabolism, immunity and way more.
Naturally after my round of antibiotics I went straight to Dr. Daryl Gioffre for a healing gut protocol. You may have seen me post it on my IG stories (and Dr. G did a Reel too) but if you missed it, not to worry. We’re gonna break it all down right here.
If you have yet to meet Dr. Daryl, he is a highly sought-after longevity expert who uses a cutting-edge approach to nutrition to help his patients fight inflammation and achieve and maintain an optimal level of health and energy.
He’s been a guest on The Skinny Confidential HIM & HER Show twice (listen here and here) AND he came on the blog for a deep dive on where to start when it comes to supplementation.
Anyway, let’s get into his protocol for healing your gut after taking antibiotics.
How To Heal Your Gut After Taking Antibiotics
Why do we need to heal our gut after taking antibiotics?
We are so fortunate to have antibiotics to destroy the bad stuff in our body, but they also destroy the good. Taking antibiotics can cause leaky gut which means that toxins, undigested food, bacteria, yeast and other stuff can easily pass into your bloodstream. After taking antibiotics it’s important to restore your gut health.
Not only will this protocol help restore your good gut flora, it will also help you sleep better, lower inflammation, give you more energy, smoother skin and you’re just going to look and feel incredible, just trust me.
♡ GI Resolve
Take 1 teaspoon as soon as you wake up and then another teaspoon again before you go to bed. This is going to strengthen your gut wall from the inside out.
♡ Bioactive Silver Hydrosol & liquid Aloe Vera
Add 1 tbsp of each of these into a glass and take it 3 times a day on an empty stomach. This is the only thing that you do only for 2 weeks. All the other stuff you can continue every day for ultimate gut health. It’ll help seal and heal the gut and kill bad pathogens.
♡ Just Thrive Probiotics
We never get enough and and this just helps build up the healthy microbiome which is so important after antibiotics. I love Just Thrive because it actually makes it to your gut, a lot don’t. Think of it like this:
probiotic = for life
antibiotic = against life
A good probiotic daily is one of the best health tips! Use code SKINNY for 15% off at Just Thrive.
♡ Acid-Kicking Daily Minerals
Love the kiwi strawberry flavor in these glass tumblers because it’s this cute pink color which is just so on brand. LOL.
These minerals will alkalize your gut after taking acidic antibiotics. I take this every day no matter what. You get your minerals and also lower inflammation and boost your immune system.
To kill 2 birds you can drink your minerals at night with your 2nd dose of GI Resolve.
♡ Daily Greens
This is also something you can take daily to get 21 nutrients and 5 servings of greens. All the flavors are delicious and you can do this when you wake up on a an empty stomach WITH your GI resolve. Let’s keep it efficient, right?
You can shop everything in my Amazon shop here. Always wanna keep things easy for you.
You are going to feel amazing from this protocol let me tell you, and you don’t need to take antibiotics to start it. Start now and watch your gut health go off. Just remember to stop the silver and aloe after 2 weeks and continue with the rest.
