Probiotics Can Heal Your Digestive Tract

Dr. Karlo Mauro, N.D.

You need live bacteria in your gut. But you need the right kind. Some help, some hurt. The more good guys you have in your colon, the less the bad guys can have control.

Your digestive tract has one-hundred thousand BILLION bacteria living inside it!

If you write that out it's the number one followed by 14 zeros. 100,000,000,000,000! That's TEN TIMES the number of cells you have in your entire body!

30 - 50% of your fecal matter (AKA poop) is bacteria. Up to 500 different species. Your colon's literally a zoo!

And that's only in your digestive tract...

5 Ways Probiotics Can Change Your Life

I'd like to share five ways probiotics can improve your life (not just your intestines)…

1. They Supply 5-10% of Your Body's Fuel: One of your intestinal flora's favourite foods are fibers from plant food (which we can't digest). Healthy bacteria transform fiber into a fatty-acid called butyrate. Butyrate gets burned as fuel by your colon cells. Plus, it's been shown to help decrease the growth of colon cancer cells.

2. Keeps Your Immune System On Guard: 70% of your immune system lies in your gastrointestinal tract. Supplying these beneficial bacteria keeps it active and fit so that when a serious bacterial invasion takes place, it will be ready to defend and defeat.

3. Dairy Aid! Lactobacillus bacteria have been shown to help you digest the troublesome sugar lactose found in dairy products.

4. Heavy-Metal Detoxifying! Bacteria bind onto heavy metals in your colon. Instead of these poisons going to your heart and brain, they're vanquished with your next trip to the restroom.

5. Improved Skin Health and Decreased Allergies: By altering your digestive tract's immune system, probiotics can significantly help with eczema and allergies.

Most people don't necessarily have to take probiotics every day. I'd recommend you follow a strict regimen for at least 60 days. After that once every couple of days, or whenever you eat red meat (e.g., beef, pork, veal, etc.) or have a bloating stomach, may be enough. Especially if you're already eating probiotic-rich, fermented foods like yogurt, kefir, sauerkraut or miso.

If you ever have food poisoning with diarrhea, taking probiotics every couple of hours, can help produce rapid relief. Many have found this completely cures intestinal infections in a matter of hours.

I'll now give you some general guidelines for improving your immune system with probiotics and avoiding unnecessary harm if you ever need to take antibiotics. The stronger your immune system, the more in balance your digestive tract's bacteria will be... which of course, means the more regular your bowel movements will become.

So Here Are Some Tips To Help Out your Microbiological Friends...

• Buy only meat, chicken, eggs and dairy products that are antibiotic-free.

• Don't take antibiotics for every common cold! Most common colds are caused by viruses and antibiotics are USELESS against viruses while wiping out 99.9% of your colon's healthy bacteria.

• If you do take antibiotics to fight off a bacterial infection, make sure you complete the FULL dosage prescribed — even if symptoms disappear early. You must wipe out the infection completely or else the strongest bacteria will survive and pass on their resistant genes to their offspring. Just make sure you...

• Take a probiotic supplement about THREE HOURS AFTER each dose of the antibiotic. This will ensure any killed bacteria in the gut from the antibiotics will be replaced. Continue for 2-3 weeks after completing the prescription. Then return to a normal daily dosage...

• Take a high-quality, probiotic each day. About 10 billion bacteria per day is sufficient.

Yours in Natural Health,
