You would’ve heard of probiotics in the media a lot these days, – now that orthodox medicine has finally discovered the benefits of these bacteria. The term “probiotic” means “for life” from the Greek & Latin languages. Did you know we have more “good” bacteria living inside us, than we do cells in our entire body!
The overgrowth of “bad” bacteria can cause many symptoms such as:
poor digestive function
symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome- constipation, diarrhoea, bloating &/or flatulence
increase in allergies, intolerance’s or eczema
The addition of “good” bacteria to the gut, creates a barrier effect to aid the flourishing of “good” bacteria – whilst reducing the number of “bad” bacteria. The barrier can breakdown due to stress, illness, antibiotics, poor diet, excessive alcohol consumption or physical alterations to the gut. Dysbiosis can result – affecting your digestion & immune system function.
Now there are a lot of over-the-counter probiotics – but do you know what is good for your specific problem???? This is why you should get professional advice from me (your friendly naturopath) – the correct strain will give you the real & effective benefits.
