The Balance of Bacteria & Yeast

Our bodies have evolved in relationship to the environment for three billion years. We have developed symbiotic and synergistic relationships with other living organisms. Our digestive tracts are a great example of this relationship, since the intestinal tract is lined with trillions of bacteria and yeasts that are totally foreign (non-human living cells) and yet, collectively they form an organ that is vital to the healthy function of your body, as without them you wouldn't be alive at all.

We all have two to four pounds of these foreign cells, mostly lining our digestive tract as well as other surface areas that interact with the environment. These cells have significant metabolic activity and their by-products have an immense impact on your health. Thus, having them in a friendly balance is of the utmost importance to your energy level, health, and immunity.

Factors such as stress, poor diet, antibiotics, and too much alcohol are common issues that can lead to an imbalance that depresses the friendly flora, promoting an overgrowth of potentially unfriendly bacteria or yeasts like Candida albicans, and the adverse Candida symptoms that accompany it. Basic tools to help keep the balance of power in its normal, healthy state and prevent an overgrowth of Candida yeast include supplementing with dietary fiber (Fiber Helper) and friendly flora (Super Dophilus).*

Nature has also provided a wide array of nutrients that promote healthy digestive balance. Some of these nutrients are found in plants and are part of a plant's natural defense system. Other of these nutrients are found in mother's milk and are part of how a mother's immunity is passed along while at the same time nourishing her child's digestive tract to evolve and prosper. The top nutrients to support these efforts are as follows and may be used in any combination.*

Oregano Oil Oregano Oil

Oregano oil is a natural immune support product that is generally helpful for digestive and sinus support. Because oregano is an oil it is absorbed directly into your lymphatic system from your digestive tract. Part of the oils in oregano oil are called terpenes, which are excellent dissolvers of fatty sludge – both in the lymph system and in the gall bladder. For some people oregano is a great tool to help keep the lymph moving along, especially when sinus issues clog it up.*
