15 Oct Treating Virtually Any Illness, Including Lyme Disease, With the Help of Bacteria!
Early disruption of the optimum microbial populations in the body can have lifelong consequences, not just in terms of intestinal function but in distal organs including the brain.
The generational use of antibiotics and the subsequent extinction of ideal species of bacteria in the microbiome in a family also can lead to the predispositions to illnesses that were previously thought to be genetic in origin, such as autoimmune diseases. Asthma and other environmental and allergic sensitivities are now recognized to be caused in large part to the absence of key friendly bacteria in the body from antibiotic use, poor diet killing off friendly bacteria, the use of chlorinated/fluorinated water, environmental pollution/toxins, EMF radiation from electronics, and the manipulation of the gene-pool and microbiome with vaccinations.
Long term antibiotics are now recognized to be definitely causing more problems than they are fixing, not only killing the harmful bacteria, but also the friendly bacteria that are so important in maintaining health of the body and mind. The era of chemical, prescription antibiotics has largely run its course and thankfully there is something infinitely better positioned to take its place – friendly to humans, tailor-made bacteria designed to seek out and destroy disease-promoting bad bacteria in the body.
We are entering the era of designer bacteria. Cornell researchers have developed a genetically-modified strain of Lactobacillus bacteria, a commonly found friendly gut bacteria, that can virtually eliminate diabetes in rats, by causing the bacteria to secrete a protein called Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1).
The doctors of the Biologix Center for Optimum Health, in Wichita, Kansas are utilizing many of these newly available bacterial strains, in conjunction with many other innovative treatments to achieve better results in chronic illnesses. We are working with novel ways to promote the populations of key types of bacteria that are already present in the body, yet which were being suppressed by various means. We suspect that many of the species of friendly bacteria that are assumed to be missing from a person’s microbiome are actually present, yet their population is minimal in numbers. By using strategic treatments to promote the growth of these populations it is our hope that these native bacteria can flourish, providing the missing benefits to the person. The results have been impressive in terms of patient-reported symptom relief.
Of course not every aspect of illness can be corrected just by restoring the microbiome. Having a wide range of treatment tools, and taking full responsibility for needing to know how to address the entire body, as opposed to just focusing on pieces and parts of the body as seen in the various specialties in conventional medicine, is what makes the doctors of the Biologix Center unique.
If it sounds scary to purposely send in bacteria to kill bacteria or to treat disease, then you must realize that there are always 10 times more bacteria than there are cells in the healthy human body.
It is interesting that according to research, the healthy human body has between 1.5-2 QUADRILLION bacteria and as many as 3000 different species, and over 1000 different types of bacteria just in the intestines! Let’s put that into perspective. There are only 150 trillion cells in the adult human body. There are 1500 trillions in 1.5 quadrillion. That is a lot of bacteria!
With thousands of different types of bacteria living synergistically (harmoniously and beneficially) in an optimally healthy body, then health is not determined by the presence of bacteria, but loss of health can definitely be attributed to the absence of key types of bacteria! From the suffering and diseases of so many generations it would seem that bacteria are certainly a cause of disease. Overgrowth of the wrong types of bacteria can definitely cause symptoms of disease, but often the direct killing of bacteria doesn’t produce health in the long run. The future of medicine is coming in the form of bacterial wars, strategically pitting specific strains of bacteria to target and shut down the bad bacteria.
