ENTEROIMMUNOLOGY: REPAIRING THE MICROBIOME

INTRODUCTION:
  • The immune system is located along the bowel lining, and is controlled by the microbiome, which consists of the microorganisms in the gastrointestinal tract.
  • “Dysbiosis” or harmful changes to the microbiome activate the immune system, and this is what is called “chronic inflammation”
  • Harmful changes in the microbiome occur from not being breastfed, antibiotics, acid-suppressant medications, unhealthy lifestyles, toxins (smoking/alcohol), chronic stress, insomnia, etc.
  • Our enteroimmunology program is focused on repairing the microbiome, thereby measurably stopping chronic inflammation for good.
DIAGNOSTIC TESTING:
  • Stool microbiome testing (covered by MEDICARE and most insurances)
  • Blood TGF-beta, zonulin testing
  • Urinary 5HIAA testing
  • B12 testing (using urinary methylmalonic acid/creatinine ratio
  • salivary cortisol testing also is a marker for chronic dysbiotic gut inflammation (which causes alterations in cortisol production)
  • endoscopy, MRI, and CT scanning may be useful as well

TREATMENTS:

  • Suppression of pathologic bacterial/fungal- Candida /parasitic overgrowth using antimicrobials such as xifaxan (rifaximin), neomycin, artemisinin (oral/IV), garlic, slippery elm, berberine, fluconazole, Candibactin AR/BR, and anti-microbial essential oils
  • Immunoglobulin treatments such as Enteragam to bind inflammatory metabolites
  • Spore-based Bacillus species probiotics
  • Bio Tract/Livebac (ideal tableting for probiotics) lactobacillus/bifidobacterium species probiotics
  • Support of Digestion
  • Immunomodulatory treatments such as triphala, Vitamin A, breast milk, colostrum, and reduced terrahydrite
  • Repair of the intestinal lining
  • Promotion of immune tolerance
  • Replacement of beneficial bacteria
  • Nutritional treatments
  • Essential oil treatments with anti-microbial and immunomodulatory effects
  • Biofilm-destroying treatments
  • Treatments to lower stomach pH before eating and to optimize pH balance after eating
  • Pancreatic support
  • Hepatobiliary support
  • Fecal Microbial Transplant via colon tube 
  • Prebiotic fiber and resistant starches to regrow beneficial bacteria and increase short chain fatty acid (SCFA) levels
  • Beneficial virus therapy (Bacteriophage)
  • Enteric anti-inflammatories (Such as mesalamine, curcumin, and aloe)
  • Repair of the oral / odontogenic, sinopulmonary, urogenital, and skin microbiomes
  • Strategies to decrease prostate inflammation
