Do you have a healthy Gut? Why are probiotics so important?
From the Desk of Dr. Howard Robins at The Healing Center in New York City...
To answer these basic but very important questions it is important to understand the following facts, many of which are simply astounding!
Probiotic bacteria help digest your food in exchange for a warm, safe place to live. They help process the food we eat, they make vitamins, they're able to produce essential amino acids (the basic proteins we need daily) and they're able to talk to and educate our immune system.
In fact it was said, “All disease begins in the gut”, attributed to the ancient Greek physician Hippocrates.
On a recent CBS News show “60 Minutes” on probiotics Dr. Patricia Hibberd, an infectious disease specialist and a professor of medicine at Boston University, was asked “Is there convincing evidence that commercially available probiotics have been found to be beneficial for reducing diarrhea from antibiotics, treating irritable bowel syndrome or decreasing allergies?”
Her answer was, “NO!”.
She went on to say “The whole idea that maybe throwing in good bacteria that we would take by mouth that hopefully would land in the right places in the GI tract and work with the immune system, we just don't know how to do any of that.”
A major cause of confusion may be the placebo effect whereby some people using probiotics may feel better because they expect to feel better.
Professors Eran Elinav and Eran Segal at Israel's Weizmann Institute of Science collected thousands of samples from a small group of adult volunteers who were given probiotics following multiple endoscopies and colonoscopies to see what was in their gut.
Half of the individuals were given placebos and half probiotics in very large amounts. What they found was that the probiotics, they go in and just go out and they don't populate the gut. They were shocked!
Antibiotics and good bacteria
Have you ever had an antibiotic? Even once in your Lifetime?
Well, guess what, all your good gut bacteria are gone! Antibiotics kill the good boys off with the bad bacteria rapidly.
You may say “I take a capsule, powder, or tablet probiotics every day”.
Those probioticsare virtually 90+% destroyed in the stomach by the stomach acids and digestive enzymes. They never reach your gut and the rest rarely if at all populate the gut wall as discussed and proven above by the researchers.
“But it says they were alive at the time of manufacturing on the label”. Yes, they are supposedly in “suspended animation” but most are dead and those that are not will not come back to life even if they survive the stomach.
This is what was found and explains the comments and results of the researchers.
Dr. Jeff Gordon of “60 Minutes” said “Despite disagreement about how or whether today's probiotics work, every scientist we spoke with was hopeful about the possibility of improving health by manipulating the microbiome”.
ALL my patients need probiotics as my intravenous ozone therapy will destroy all bacteria, just not as fast as antibiotics. This is what led me to find a product that can really work.
Is there an answer? Is there a product that can really work?
