What is Gut Dysbiosis?
Dysbiosis occurs when gut bacteria become imbalanced, leading to a varying range of digestive issues including diarrhea, bloating, constipation, stomach cramping, and more. The condition has been linked to several other gut conditions including irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), inflammatory bowel disease, and gastritis.
There are at least 400 essential bacteria species found in the gut biome that are responsible for aiding in digestion, fighting off pathogenic microorganisms, and synthesizing vitamins. When they become imbalanced and the bad bacteria outweighs the beneficial bacteria, illness is the result.
Dysbiosis is often the result of a dietary change that increases protein, sugar, or food addictive intake, accidental chemical consumption, overconsumption of alcohol, medications such as antibiotics that affect the gut flora, poor dental hygiene, high levels of stress or anxiety, or unprotected sex.
How is Gut Dysbiosis typically diagnosed?
Since it can, but not always, mimic other gut conditions, it is easy for doctors to misdiagnose dysbiosis as something else. Doctors may diagnose by ruling out other conditions, or look to other conditions or signals to make diagnosis. For example, a person may be diagnosed with dysbiosis if he or she already has a diagnosis of IBS, a history of prolonged antibiotic use, an autoimmune disease, or a family history of gastroenteritis. In order to confirm this diagnosis, a doctor may perform an organic acid test, a breath test, a biopsy of gut tissue, or a comprehensive stool analysis.

What are the symptoms of Gut Dysbiosis?
Patients suffering from dysbiosis may notice the following symptoms:
Halitosis (bad breath)
This is because the condition causes excess gas, and much of the gas exits through the mouth.
Diarrhea, nausea, constipation, and bloating are common symptoms of dysbiosis.
This is because changes in the composition of gut microbiota associated with disease have been linked to pathologies such as hypertension, heart failure, and more.
Vaginal or rectal itching
Gut flora is abundant in the colon, but it also affects the vaginal flora. Patients may also notice a difficulty urinating.
Rash or redness
Cutaneous and intestinal dysbiosis can cause inflammatory skin conditions in some patients.
Many patients battling dysbiosis have trouble falling or staying asleep or notice that they feel exhausted despite adequate sleep.
Anxiety and depression
Coping with persistent symptoms leaves many patients feeling hopeless, especially since the majority of medical doctors have yet to find long-lasting treatment methods. Reach out to a friend, family member, or counselor for extra support during your battle with dysbiosis.

How is Gut Dysbiosis typically treated?
Once a person has been diagnosed with dysbiosis, doctors typically suggest OTC and prescription drugs depending on their patient’s most noticeable symptoms and their severity. Though these measures may temporarily ease symptoms, they do not provide lasting relief and may actually be disruptive to other systems of the body.
How does The Biologix Center treat Gut Dysbiosis differently?
While the prevailing medical thought is to first and foremost mask any symptoms by prescribing purple pills for stomach pain, sleep-aids for exhaustion, and antidepressants for anxiety, none of these drugs address the symptoms’ underlying causes. The Biologix Center uses precise, real-time testing and treatment methods to target the multiple structural and functional imbalances associated with every case of dysbiosis, enabling the body to naturally, and often rapidly, achieve lasting relief. Our goal is to promote the long-term restoration of health without encouraging a dependence upon medications.
Using tests such as Biospectroscopic Emission Sequence Testing (BEST), developed at the Biologix Center over 20 years ago by Dr. David A. Jernigan, D.C., we can eliminate much of the guesswork in doctoring. Unlike conventional blood tests that produce merely a snapshot of a patient’s blood on the day it was drawn, our constantly evolving technologies provide far more insight into the root causes of a patient’s symptoms as well as treatment options that are tested for compatibility and effectiveness for each patient’s unique body, before even beginning treatment.
Every system of the body is interconnected and interdependent, meaning that each system must be precisely addressed in order for the body to achieve optimal health. Health care delivery is often a minimalistic approach. It is far easier to prescribe a painkiller or antibiotic than to provide the maximum applied effort needed to truly restore the optimum form and function of the body. The Biologix Center’s approach is for those who truly desire to be well, not just feel well from drug-induced illusions of health. The best of every healing method and testing is brought to your unique case, in one-on-one, hour-long treatment sessions with the doctor treating you.
Once we have determined a compatible treatment method to rid your entire body of any toxins and harmful bacteria, we will use NeuroCardial Synchronization™, developed at the Biologix Center by Dr. David Jernigan, D.C., to synchronize your brain and heart waves in an effort to help your body to maintain the correct heart rate and blood pressure. We will also use neurofeedback to enable the brain to correct its stuck brain waves. Doing so will restore the optimum functional and structural integrity of the body, and help you get your life back!
