      From everything I have read on treating and healing your gut flora after broadspectrum antibiotics, it takes 6 months. I have been on Plant Paradox diet for two years ànd a few weeks ago I had to go on an broadspectrum antibiotic, I did not know that there were narrowspectrum àntibiotics that do not kill all the good bacteria. You can also go with a natural antibiotic…oil of oregano. Excellent for flu,, colds, fungal and viral and bacterial infections. I should have taken the oil, but my doctor scared me. Now I’ve got my work cut out for me.

    I have had stomach issues for years and decided to try Total Restore. I have been taking it for approximately one week and feel horrible. I printed the No and Yes food list and have been following that…Question, Should I take the total restore over the day or all at once. Food is not my friend right now and I am not sure what to do.

    PennyK Henness, first of all you need to stop spamming websites when you can’t write in english, I couldn’t understand hardly anything you wrote.

    But all the symptoms that you had and in that timeframe is pretty clear that it was corona virus. Diarrhea, tight chest/ chest pain, headaches, bronchitis are all symptoms of corona virus. And since your pain was so bad it was not just a flu. Back then doctors thought you needed to have a cough, but that has been proven to be completely false, so probably why they didn’t think you had corona.
