A groundbreaking study was presented at the Digestive Disease Week conference in San Diego, California in May 2022. This study proved without a doubt that antibiotic usage increased the risk of IBD (inflammatory bowel disease) significantly), and the more prescriptions issued, the higher the risk.
Researchers analyzed the health records of more than 2.3 million older adults, aged 60 to 90. They found that just One prescription for antibiotics within a five year period was associated with a 27% increased risk of IBD!
- Two prescriptions increased risk by 55%.
- Three prescriptions increased risk by 67%.
- Four prescriptions increased risk by 96%.
- Five or more prescriptions increased risk by 236%.
Another study of 22,000 colon cancer patients showed that people who had taken antibiotics were 8% to 11% more likely to develop colorectal cancer and colon polyps.
We're not even talking about the increased risk of Alzheimer's and memory loss associated with antibiotics in that age range.
These findings are unbelievable.
Yet the medical establishment isn't even trying to find natural alternatives to antibiotics. And there are so many.
With all of the studies out there on the healing effects of various herbs there is no excuse to continue prescribing drugs that destroy the gut microbiome.
ANTIBIOTICS DESTROY THE GUT MICROBIOME
Natural Alternatives to Antibiotics
At Joseph's Organic Bakery, we've had dozens of customers reporting severe side effects long after they've stopped taking anti-biotics.
I've been antibiotic free for over 15 years, thank G-d, and I've learned that the key to preventing overcoming viral and bacterial infections without antibiotics, lies in strengthening the immune system. Preventing is easier than a cure.
The secret to immune strength lies in the gut. A healthy Gut, with healthy gut bacteria, plays a huge rule in a healthy immune system. After all, 70% of the immune system lies in the gut!
We also have to strengthen the red blood cells.
If you want to strengthen your immune system Read on to learn more.
BUILDING A STRONG IMMUNE SYSTEM
STEPS 1-3 WILL TEACH YOU HOW TO BUILD A STRONG IMMUNE SYSTEM LONG TERM TO AVOID GETTING SICK IN THE FUTURE AND TO ACHIEVE SUPER-IMMUNITY.
STEPS 4-6 CAN BE USED FOR SHORT TERM PREVENTION AND FOR DEALING WITH FLU or VARIOUS VIRAL/BACTERIAL INFECTIONS.
STEP 1- AVOID TOXIC FOOD
70% percent of the immune system lies in the gut. That means that what we eat determines if we are going to have a strong immune system or not.
Probiotics (good bacteria) in the gut actually train the immune system to identify good and bacteria. If we dont have enough good bacteria due to bad diet, then we are sabotaging our own immunity.
Avoid processed refined flours and sugars which actually feed bad bacteria. Bad or pathogenic Bacteria feed on sugar, and hundreds of research studies have shown that sugars severely weaken the immune system.
Fish should be avoided by everyone at all times due to high levels of heavy metals. Certain types of Bad bacteria feed on heavy metals.
Most of the cooking oils used in restaurants and processed foods are trans fatty oils. Trans fats cause low immunity.
STEP 2 HEALTHY PLANT BASED ANCIENT GRAIN DIET
Step 2 would be to modify your diet to include plenty of fruits, vegetables (cooked and raw), and healthy ancient grains.
Ancient grains have anti-inflammatory properties.
Kamut is the grain we bake with at Joseph's Organic Bakery. Our kamut sourdough bread really is the cornerstone of a healthy diet. Bread was a staple food for thousands of years for a reason. It's how I start my day, with 2 slices every morning (around 10-11am). Plus its fermented to ensure high levels of probiotics.
Vegetables, ancient grains, and fruits contain plant bioactives and PHYTO-NUTRIENTS that Boost the Immune System
There are more than 10,000 phytonutrients, and they help fight disease naturally by boosting the immune system. Some phytonutrients act like antibiotics in your body and help fight infection.
Look for fruits and vegetables with intense colors.

STEP 3 STRENGTHEN THE RED BLOOD CELLS
We also need to talk about the importance of healthy blood. The red blood cells are vital to the immune system.
Everyone talks about the white blood cells. but the Red Blood Cells are just as important to our immune system. The red blood cells Supply oxygen to all cells of the body including damaged cells, helping in their repair. This job prevents the core cause of sickness: an acidic environment in the body.
By strengthening the red blood cells, in essence you are creating an alkaline oxygenated environment in the body, preventing the body from developing sickness and disease to begin with.
THE RED BLOOD CELLS ARE ALSO IMMUNE SENTINELS, THE GUARDS, THE LOOKOUTS THAT ALERT THE BODY TO FOREIGN INVADERS.
That's where our Immune Pro herbal supplement comes in.
At Joseph's Organic Bakery, we formulated the Immune Pro to strengthen the red blood cells and to promote healthy blood flow.
Immune Pro not only strengthens the immune system, but it also helps combat anemia, one of the key causes of fatigue.
STEP 4 - CISTUS TEA
THERE ARE HERBS, LIKE OUR CISTUS TEA, THAT HAVE BEEN USED FOR CENTURIES TO BOOST THE IMMUNE SYSTEM NATURALLY.
Cistus tea is a potent antioxidant, destroying free radicals. It also has anti-inflammatory properties. It has the potential to inhibit the multiplication of viruses, which may help to alleviate cold and influenza.
It also has anti-bacterial and antifungal properties. It contains polyphenols that may destroy free radicals. Through bioflavonoids, it works synergistically with vitamin C, enhancing its action.
UMEBOSHI PROBIOTIC RICH FERMENTED PLUMS
Umeboshi plums are fermented plums, very rich in probiotics. For over a thousand years they have been valued as a powerful digestive aid. Asian cultures use this fruit to rejuvenate the gut, as an anti-bacterial, anti-candida, and anti-parasitic. It also combats eczema and psoriasis, fights fatigue and aids the liver.
These Plums help rejuvenate the gut.
