Probiotic the Missing link…
It is a fact that the role and importance of bacteria in human health has been grossly under-estimated and generally misunderstood by members of the public, as well as many in the medical fraternity. It is crucial to understand this unique probiotic production to provide this vital understanding of bacteria in its relationship to the human body, and how the handling of bacteria alone opens the door to a new era and understanding in human health.
The value of Beneficial Bacteria
The gastro-intestinal tract’s healthy functioning relies 100% on the presence of beneficial bacteria. Beneficial bacteria aid in digestion, correcting pH balance, break-down of foods and the prevention of the build-up of harmful bacteria. A cross section of beneficial bacteria types exists in different parts of the small and large intestine. They all act together as a ‘whole’ to consume much of the simple carbohydrate food sources available in the intestinal tract so that bad bacteria and organisms are deprived of food and they themselves then act as nutrition for the beneficial bacteria in the gut.
The bacteria in your bowels out-numbers the cells in your body by a factor of 10 to one! This becomes understandable when one looks at the fact that there are over 100 trillion bacteria – about 2 kilograms worth – that lines the intestinal tract. This is an extremely complex living system that aggressively protects the body from outside offenders.
Gut flora has incredible power over the Immune System, dictating health of the gut, and of the body, and is largely tied into the health of the brain.
Beneficial bacteria (as well as pathogens) are almost completely killed off with the use of antibiotics, which many doctors tend to give out like candy to patients who come with any kind of bacterial or viral illness. And very often tend to forget to supplement with the use of antibiotics. The old-school-type- probiotics, classically tablets or capsules fall into this category but unfortunately for them most of the human gut has evolved as has the human species and so too the toxic load affecting such. For this very reason probiotics needs to be re-addressed.
It is now generally understood that a daily dose of probiotics is needed not as part of a treatment programme but essential to the replacement of that which should have been part of the original food chain ( now completely missing even as far down as soil level!!). Food for thought – if your daily probiotic does not cover the soil organisms needed to complete the gut-mimicking nature then you might need to re-look your products choice!!
Its not just about antibiotic co-protection any longer…
Repeated use of antibiotics can virtually eradicate the good bacteria in the gut, which have to build up from scratch again each time a course of antibiotics is taken, allowing bad bacteria and harmful yeasts to take a foot hold in the digestive tract and multiply at a high rate. And in this regard Candida has stepped up many a notch in its vicious attack of our health in most regards, all ages. And to top it all has been identified as core to most of the Auto-immune diseases and most Cancers!!
It is also about Lifestyle!
So in reality the status quo as mentioned above exacerbated by poor modern-day diets high in sugar and simple carbohydrates, is going to shift the health dimension to an aggravated ‘poor’ high. In addition, there is considerable evidence to suggest that eating antibiotics-fed animal meat, hormones in most food sources and general toxic waste from every imaginable source, can kill off good bacteria in the digestive tract and therefore encourage harmful micro-organisms to overgrow. Most non-organic meat derives are from antibiotic-fed animals.
Pathogenic bacteria, Candida and parasites thrive and grow in exponential numbers on account of modern eating habits, mainly a high sugar intake, a high pasteurised dairy intake, a high wheat intake and high alcohol intake. Diets high in such foods tend to provide an ideal environment for harmful organisms in the intestinal tract, which multiply in alarming numbers.
All of the foreign organism problems have a major impact on the Digestive System, Immune System and overall health. They put a constant strain on the Immune System and excrete a variety of toxins straight into the blood and digestive system, often spreading throughout the entire body, and may well contribute to early aging, general loss of Energy and general ‘dis-ease’. Having mentioned this not a bad idea to regularly look at removing all parasites and organisms with a good parasite cleanse:
Poor digestion also leads to poor nutrient uptake and vitamin and mineral deficiencies that, over years, can build-up and massively impact the bio-chemical balances of the body and the efficiency of the basic health processes such as the neurotransmitters, hormones and energy production.
Brain discrepancies will pick up more than ever from here if we don’t make a fast move to rectify and support our gut activity!!
Harmful organisms are known to contribute to conditions such as Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) and Irritable Bowel Disease (Ulcerative Colitis or Crohn’s Disease), Bloatedness, Poor Digestions, Poor internal Flora Balance, Poor Immunity and Poor Brain/Emotional functioning as well as Weight gain and much, much more….
These conditions are likely to be partly the result of inflammation on account of overgrowth of harmful organisms and presence of large amounts of toxins in the digestive tract. Hydrogen Sulphide is an endogenous (growing within the organism and not having any external cause) toxin produced in the body by the action of these bad bacteria, Fungi (such as Candida Albicans) & fermenting sugars in the gastro-intestinal tract.
Much to think about and not a lot of time to perform if we intend denting the health statistic as they presently stand – we are in trouble because our gut health is in trouble!
