What Can You Do For CDIFF (Clostridium difficile colitis)?

chronic infection education

Today we are going over one of our frequently asked questions - What would you do for CDIFF (Clostridium difficile colitis)?

CDIFF is an infection that gets inside the GI tract and can wreak havoc on your stomach system, including nutrient absorption, digestion, and energy. It can cause a lot of complications and be tough to treat with antibiotics. 

I have seen this infection quite a bit inside the office. When people get serious and less common infections is because their body's defenses are down. While there may be a time and place for antibiotics, I think there is also an opportunity to give the body what it needs to rebuild and recover in addition to or instead of antibiotic therapy.

First, we must follow the rules of health and make the body as healthy as possible. I like to start with blood tests to make sure there are not any obvious nutritional inadequacies. 

  • Support the Thymus Gland 
  • Clean out the Lymphatic System 
  • Support White Blood Cell Efficiency 

We can do this oral nutritional therapy. 

Herbal Therapy: 

  • Echinacea 
  • Andrographis 
  • Elderberry 

Advanced IV Therapy: High-dose vitamin infusion, dilute hydrogen peroxide, ozone therapy. IV therapy allows us to skip the stomach and delivers nutrients directly into the bloodstream.

Reduce the intake of inflammatory foods including sugar and high fructose corn syrup. Elevated intake of refined white sugar has been shown to reduce the body's phagocytic index, which is the white blood cells' ability to efficiently engulf infections in the body. 

It's all about helping the body to be as healthy as possible!
