Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as broad-spectrum antibiotic use — that affect you.   Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.

  • let The Analyst™ find what's wrong
  • have a doctor review your case (optional)
  • identify any nutritional deficiencies
If you indicate recent history of antibiotic use, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Have you taken other broad-spectrum antibiotics for urinary, respiratory or other infections within the last 5 years? Examples include Ciprofloxacin and Levofloxacin.
Possible responses:
→ No / don't know
→ One course under 2 months
→ One course 2 months or longer
→ Two courses in a single year
→ Three or more courses in a single year

The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate broad-spectrum antibiotic use, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as:
Vitamin B12 Requirement

Excessive use of antibiotics or anti-convulsants can lead to B12 deficiency.

Yeast / Candida Infection

Antibiotics reduce the number of "friendly bacteria" in the intestinal tract that normally keep the Candida albicans under control.
