Starting a Probiotic After an Antibiotic

For me, the summer is not always sunshine and dandelions. Sure, I do love the warmer weather, outdoor adventures, and grilling, but I do not love the mosquitoes. I was recently at a get together at a family members home and I got attacked by those little blood suckers. They seriously feasted off of me to their little hearts content.
The only problem?
I am extra allergic to mosquito bites and my arms became extremely itchy, hot, and infected. This reaction has happened to me since a child but seems to be getting worse as I get older. Cortisone creams were not working and I scratched until I became infected. No, it was not pretty, and I after a trip to the doctors, a course of antibiotics were prescribed.
My issue is that when I take antibiotics I not only become extremely lethargic, but my body totally suffers. All the hard work I put into building my immune system and healthy flora became undone. As the antibiotic ran it’s course I knew I needed to get my body balanced again. The fact that I actually got sick with a terrible cold in the warmer months was motivation enough for me!
Who gets sick with a cold and cough when it is almost summer?
I guess that would be me! Anyhow, my husband suggested I go back on a probiotic but I kind of forgot because life got in the way. Then, by chance, I recently (as in this week *perfect timing*) received an opportunity to try Align Probiotic for three months. It is funny how things fall into place! I had been a consumer of Align in the past until I ran out of my stash, and I sorta let things slide a bit.
Now, I am happy to say I am back on track (on day 2) and going to build up my body’s healthy flora and become regular and feel better.
Did you know Align Probiotic is available at Sam’s Club in two bottle 42 count packages (3 months supply). It is the perfect convenient size for those that want to help regulate their body and give it a shot.

I am excited to hopefully get back on track…now I just need to be diligent about taking them each day!
