Turning Antibiotics Upside Down

The usual purpose of antibiotics is to kill off one specific infection. CFS Researchers and physicians also
have spent decades looking for one specific infection.

Note: More detail information on the impact of antibiotics is being assembled at our analysis site.
For example: for Vancomycin

This is very much not in agreement with uBiome results and my model. We have at least three specific bacteria genus that have been eliminated and these genus have been replaced by dozens of rare genus.

In this post I want to first look at the three bacteria genus and what antibiotics they are resistant to! Why— because we want to reduce dozens of of bacteria but not to impact those — we want to make space for the three missing bacteria genus to resettle.

Again, my data from from DataPunk.Net (from Peter D’Adamo, a Distinguished Professor of Health Sciences at the University of Bridgeport)


  1. Bifidobacteria:
  2. Lactobacillus (genus) 
  3. Escherichia (genus) 


So if you do not want to kill off the above BUT want to kill off other bacteria… the choice is obvious….

  • Acriflavin 3
  • Amikacin 3
  • Aminoglycoside -3
  • Apramycin -3
  • Astromicin 3
  • Bacitracin -3
  • Beta lactam -3
  • Carbapenem -3
  • Carbenicillin -3
  • Cefoxitin -3
  • Ceftazidime -3
  • Ceftriaxone -3
  • Cephalosporin -3
  • Cephamycin -3
  • Chloramphenicol – 1, 3
    • “Common side effects include bone marrow suppression, nausea, and diarrhoea.[3] The bone marrow suppression may result in death.[3] To reduce the risk of side effects treatment duration should be as short as possible”
  • Cloxacillin -3
  • Deoxycholate -3
  • Dibekacin 3
  • Doxorubicin -3
  • E cephalosproin 3
  • E penicillin -3
  • Enoxacin -3
  • Erythromycin -3
  • Fluoroquinolone 3
  • Fosfomycin -3
  • Gentamicin 3
  • Glycylcycline -3
  • Isepamicin 3
  • Kanamycin 3
  • Kasugamycin 3
  • Lincomycin -2
  • Lincosamide -3
  • Lividomycin 3
  • Macrolide 2, 3
  • Monobactam 3
  • N cephalosproin 3
  • Neomycin 3
  • Netilmicin 3
  • Norfloxacin 3
  • Paromomycin 3
  • Penicillin 3
  • Polymyxin 3
  • Puromycin (mdtn)
  • Ribostamycin (aph3ib)
  • Ribostamycin 3
  • Sisomicin 3
  • Spectinomycin (ant3ia)
  • Streptogramin -2
  • Streptomycin
  • Sulfonamide 3
  • T chloride (mdtn)
  • Tetracycline – 1,2, 3
  • Tobramycin 3
  • Trimethoprim 3


What antibiotics are being used with some success?  I will look at two — one believes that mycoplasma is the cause, the other believes rickettsia infection. I believe the ones above that effects other bacteria BUT NOT Bifidobacteria, Lactobacillus, E.Coli are the ones…


From  Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Treatment Guide, 2nd Edition by Erica Verrillo


And from http://cecilejadin.info/blog.html

Tetracylines include: Doxycycline, Lymecycline, Minomycin, Vibramycin, Tetralysal.

Older description included macrolides and Fluoroquinolone ( Cipro or Avelox)  [Patient Notes]


From Prof Garth Nicholson,

“6-week on 2-week off antibiotic cycles (doxycycline[Tetracycline], ciprofloxacin[Fluoroquinolone], azithromycin[Fluoroquinolone], minocycline[Tetracycline], clarithromycin[Macrolide] or others work best as oral capsules without starch fillers).”

What about Metronidazole?

“One hundred and twenty-two strains of Bifidobacterium and Lactobacillus species have been tested against 12 antibiotics and two antibiotic mixtures by a commercial system (Sensititre Anaero3; Treck Diagnostic Systems). … most of the strains were resistant to metronidazole.”  [2005]

“The minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) of metronidazole was lower for strains of Escherichia coli … The drug-induced decrease in viable numbers of E. coli was followed by an increase. Most cells in this ‘recovery’ population were found to be anaerogenic and were relatively unaffected by subsequent exposure to metronidazole. ” [ 1984]

Bottom Line

All roads lead to the same antibiotics! They do not effect Bifidobacteria, Lactobacillus or E. Coli (after first exposure).

We do not want to use these antibiotics to kill a specific bacteria — the opposite!! We want it to kill many things EXCEPT three bacteria genus. We want to make room for these to repopulate!

This is an educational/information post intended to be discussed by you with your medical professional. Note also that taking probiotics with these antibiotics is fine (and likely a good thing).
