They did put me on antibiotics but since no culture was taken by the clinic they didn't know which one it was. But being on heavy antibiotics had its perks. The wife is enjoying a less stinky version of myself.Such an infection could happen to anyone and yes staph may not be "pond related" since it exists all over our skins. I'm shocked it went that deep and your clinic didn't bother with preemptive antibiotics... if you truly described it that way to them and they did nothing I would advise to change clinics IMO.
Get some of the good yogurtNow you need some pre - and probiotics to kick start your gut - you want to replace the good bacteria ASAP!
Another way to get good probiotics is to eat fermented foods - we ferment cabbage and carrots and beets and apples and ginger and... well, you get the point! And we make our own kombucha - another good source! There are also foods that are good pre-biotics - that is, they feed the good bacteria in your gut and help them to thrive and multiply. Some of those include bananas, onions, leeks, garlic, dandelion greens... lots of good things!
And if you're going to use yogurt or kefir, make sure to find a brand without added sugar. Buy it plain and add your own fruit or some of @addy1 's delicious honey!
We eat a lot of yogurt with fresh fruit and HONEY! lol, not like we are running out at any time soon.
We put honey and berriers on our yogurt, or peaches, or nectarines. At the farmers market we sell honey at there are a lot of orchard peeps and their products are wonderful. We swap honey for fruits.thank you very much for the advice on yogurt. I am eating a plain one right now but never thought about adding Honey. YUM!!!
