Welcome to Intestinal Flora.
|Posted on Monday, September 11, 2000 - 12:08 pm: |
I second the motion that intestinal flora should be explored in cases that present a very "mixed picture" (a lot of complex symptomology with unknown etiology). I recently read a study (Fatigue in MS) in the Townsend Letter for Doctors & Patients (Nov 1995). An interesting find!! They noticed an elevated index and high frequency of "gut dysbiosis" ( a state of disordered bowel flora ecology) in various autoimmune diseases as well as CFIDS. Lactobacillus count was depressed in all patients. What do you think??

Hi Georgette and Ingrid,
Bhavana here... my visit last week to a trained Microbiologist/Cherokee Healer may offer another piece to your post, Georgette...
His theory (which has and continues to be proved in the dramatic improvements in health of his patients) is that many diseases and conditions such as diabetes and HIV/AIDS occur as a result of an imbalance of health flora (ie acidophollus and lacabacillus), and a overabundance of unhealthy flora such as Candida (yeast fungus). His practice "Earth Medicine" is in Somerville, MA, his name is Byron Jordon. I'd be happy to get you his contact info if you're interested in talking w/ him... he has succesfully taken a 83 yo woman off insulin and has corrected her diabetes, and has turned two patients HIV pos to neg!
I've been put on a probiotic, low yeast, low sugar diet to combat recurrant ear infections, pms, and dermatitis. It's only been a week, so i can't yet report my health improvements to the members of this site.
My two cents... Peace, Bhavana
