Dysbiosis (imbalance in the gut flora) and 'leaky gut' are often synonymous with INFECTION. Dysbiosis and infection lie on a spectrum causing varying degrees of symptoms. Sometimes, it is a challenge to get the immune system to recognize and resolve infection.
NO PROBIOTIC UNDER THE SUN WILL RESOLVE YOUR CONDITION UNTIL THE DYSBIOSIS AND INFECTION IS RESOLVED.
Step #1: REMOVE
You must remove the infection before you do anything else. This can be done with powerful antimicrobials (natural antibiotics).
Step #2: REPLACE
Infection may have left you depleted of stomach acid or enzymes to digest food.
Step #3: REINOCULATE
You will have to support the body with good bacteria. There is much evidence now that very little if any ‘probiotics’ can withstand the acidity of the stomach……have taking traditional probiotics ever really helped you? Soil based probiotics are necessary as they DO survive the stomach and create natural antibiotics in the gut lining that assist in eliminating infection. Read my blog on soil organisms here.
Step # 4: REPAIR
The mucosal lining of the intestines has been compromised due to dysbiosis/infection. Inflammation has caused the tight junctions of the colon wall to loosen, allowing undigested food particles to seep through- this spells brain fog and fatigue among many other things. The lining will naturally begin to heal itself once infection is resolved, however, assisting the body in this process is important.
