REPAIRING THE MICROBIOME

The gut microbiome contains bacteria, viruses, fungi, protozoans (often call parasites) We actually have the diagnostic skills to compare your gut microbiome to that of the statistically healthy gut microbiome; which translates to lower cancer/dementia/heart attack/stroke risk.

Each of the organisms below are important; we measure their relative amounts in the ecosystem of your guts. This is 3rd chakra balancing on a scientific plane never seen before; in harmony with 21st century scientific knowledge.

WHAT IS INVOLVED IN GUT MICROBIOME REPAIR?

Testing reveals your unique gut flora, immunology, intestinal health, and endocrine health. After testing, we use the results to balance the entire microbiome using protocols customized to your unique gut microbiome profile. This may involve:

  • Increasing levels of bacteria using probiotics, polyphenols, prebiotics, triphala, tryptophan, synbiotics and plant-based fiber (resistant starches)
  • Decreasing levels of bacteria using anti-microbials and low FODMAP diets
  • Decreasing levels of fungus using anti-fungals
  • Decreasing levels of viruses using humic/fulvic acid products
  • Improving protein digestion/malabsorption by acidifying the stomach and by using pancreatic enzymes
  • Improving fat digestion/malabsorption using pancreatic enzymes and bile acid binding resins
  • Healing the intestinal lining (leaky gut) with butyrate, reduced terrahydrite, and balancing gut bacteria
  • Lowering inflammation using anti-inflammatories such as triphala and curcumin
  • Decreasing colon inflammation using GPR109a activators such as niacin and butyrate
  • Mindfulness practices to lessen vagal nerve induced imbalances
  • Binding up toxic metabolites and chemicals using immunoglobulins
  • Modulating inflammation using Vitamin D, Vitamin A, and colostrum
  • Balancing hormones (especially estrogens/progesterone)
  • Decreasing toxic bacterial metabolite production via customized meal planning

We also offer customized programs to address the other microbiomes important in the human body:

Sinus microbiome

  • Emphasis on resolving chronic fungal sinusitis (Candida of the sinuses)
  • Diagnostics include specialized nasal swabs and blood testing
  • Treatments typically involve nasal washes and anti-fungal treatments

Bladder microbiome

  • Useful to treat chronic UTIs and interstitial cystitis (IC)

HOW DOES REPAIRING THE MICROBIOME HELP YOU?

A healthy gut microbiome controls gut health by communicating with the intestinal cells and immune cells. Good communication leads to improved digestion, disease prevention, and inflammation suppression. A diseased gut microbiome is linked to autism, ALL CANCERS, dementia, heart attack, stroke, liver disease, kidney disease, recurrent infection, mental illness, autoimmune disease, obesity, and addiction. The gut microbiome has also been linked to how individuals respond to certain drugs, especially CHEMO / ANTIBIOTICS / ANTIDEPRESSANTS
