“Friendly bacteria have long been known to block the growth of toxin-producing organisms.”
Dr. Royal Lee wrote the above quote in the 1950s. He was referring to the vital role that beneficial intestinal microbes play in human health.
Sixty years later, the “Microbiome Project” made big science news in 2013. This enormous study revealed more details than we’ve ever known on the subject of gut bacteria.
While we’ve long known that we need friendly intestinal bacteria to prevent such things as diarrhea, constipation, colitis, cramps, gas, diverticulitis, colon and rectal cancer, etc….it is now apparent that a healthy balance of friendly versus enemy gut “bugs” does much more than that!
These amazing microscopic critters greatly influence our getting, preventing, and curing conditions like diabetes, obesity, autoimmune disease, heart disease, depression and/or anxiety, insomnia, and much more.
They are also, as Dr. Lee indicated, closely involved with detoxifying foreign substances out of the body.
You thought that your immune system is composed of your spleen, tonsils, and adenoids and lymph glands? Partly true. The climate in your gut also has a huge “voice” in a healthy immune system!.
Simply put, we need to understand that the integrity of our digestive systems is critical to good health.
Dr. Lee also said, “Good food is only ‘good’ if you can digest it.” So, to a diet of organic whole, real foods, add digestive enzymes at each meal, to replace the loss of stomach acid as we’ve mentioned before. Avoid antacids. Come in and get checked for ProSynbiotic or other friendly bacterial support that your body requires.
You may well be amazed at your increased energy and vitality!
