The Best Probiotic
The Institute of Nutritional Science is a pioneer in the management of such conditions as yeast infections, candida overgrowth, and the very serious, systemic candidiasis. We have long established that it is the lack of adequate natural bacteria in the gut, which cause these conditions to develop. It is imperative that you replace these natural bacteria every time you use medications such as antibiotics, steroid drugs, or birth control medications. Further, we need to replace the healthy bacteria after a fast, cleanse, or oxy flush. The Best Probiotic we use contains 14 billion micro flora per serving, a level of supplementation we feel is necessary to re-establish colon integrity making it truly the best probiotic. When considering a colon cleanse it is imperative to replace the healthy bacteria afterwards. With condition like ulcerative colitis, it is wise to consult with a health care professional since colitis symptoms can vary greatly from one person to another. The best probiotic is one that provides both prebiotics and probiotics to help ensure ongoing beneficial flora. Remember that not all probiotic supplements are the same.
The National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) recommended dosing for systemic prednisone, prednisolone, or methylprednisolone in pediatric patients whose asthma is uncontrolled by inhaled corticosteroids and long-acting bronchodilators is 1–2 mg/kg/day in single or divided doses. It is further recommended that short course, or "burst" therapy, be continued until the patient achieves a peak expiratory flow rate of 80% of his or her personal best or until symptoms resolve. This usually requires 3 to 10 days of treatment, although it can take longer. There is no evidence that tapering the dose after improvement will prevent a relapse.
Effects of steroid withdrawal are known to emulate and kick start many other medical complications as well. Weakness, loss of appetite, fatigue, nausea, weight loss, vomiting, diarrhea (further resulting in liquid and electrolyte complications), as well as abdominal pain are some of the most common effects that steroid withdrawal is often associated with. Constant decrease in blood pressure which simultaneously causes a person to faint or causes fits and dizziness are other complications the steroid use can cause.
Blood sugar levels are known to have dropped in many people who consume steroids. In women, menstrual changes have been reported widely. Muscle and joint pains, fever, changes in mentality, as well as elevation in calcium levels have been reported in some cases. Gastrointestinal contractions decrease dramatically which may ultimately lead to the swelling of the intestine .
