An anthroposophic lifestyle and intestinal microflora in infancy

There is no longer any excuse for pediatricians to be unaware of the long term damaging effects of antibiotics and the importance of maintaining a healthy intestinal flora. There is too much evidence supporting their importance for a physician who is cognizant of his or her patient’s well being to ignore. We need to understand how important healthy bacterial flora is an promote lifestyles that support their growth. This would include avoidance of antibiotics, whole grain foods, intake of fermented foods and possibly probiotic supplementation. I fully believe that this is one of the key reasons (coupled with an increase in vaccinations) why allergies and asthma are becoming so prevalent in our kids.
