The microbiome is defined as the collective genomes of the microbes (composed of bacteria, bacteriophage, fungi, protozoa and viruses) that live inside and on the human body.
Is microbiome good or bad?
The microbiome consists of microbes that are both helpful and potentially harmful. Most are symbiotic (where both the human body and microbiota benefit), and some, in smaller numbers, are pathogenic (promoting disease). In a healthy body, pathogenic and symbiotic microbiota coexist without problems.
Microbiota stimulates the immune system, breaks down potentially toxic food compounds, and synthesizes specific vitamins and amino acids, including the B vitamins and vitamin K.
Want to Know How to Learn More About Your Microbiome and Gut Health?
Step 1: Do a Comprehensive Stool Test to check which harmful bacteria’s are in the gut
Step 2: Each stool test resultcomes with a natural protocol to help eliminate harmful bacteria in the gut. (The bad bacteria has been tested in the lab against a few different natural herbs and medications, so you know the support you give your body will help!)
Step 3: Take them as directed
Step 4: Retest in about 4-5 months
Some Natural Remedies to Help Your Body Get Rid of Bad Bacteria in Your Gut Which Improves Microbiome Health.
Grapefruit Seed Extract: This nutrient is known to possess antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-fungal properties and can be used to support candida, earaches, recurring UTIs, throat infections, and diarrhea.
Caprylic Acid is a fat that helps the body get rid of candida, bacteria, and even acne. It has antibacterial, antiviral, anti-fungal, and anti-inflammatory properties. It can also be used to support the body when there are UTIs or bladder infections. Another term for caprylic acid is octanoic acid. It is taken internally and helps the body get rid of harmful bacteria and yeast while it does not threaten good bacteria levels.
Berberine: The herb Berberine comes in pill form, and it can help rid the body of harmful bacteria, plus it can help control blood sugar and lower cholesterol. It boosts intestinal health by balancing out your microbiome, the collective bacteria in your gut. It only attacks the harmful bacteria in the but, it leaves the good bacteria alone. It can also help rid yeast.
Oil of Oregano: Oregano oil is a powerful oil proving to be just as helpful as some traditional antibiotics. It does not cause any of the known side effects like an antibiotic does. It contains two compounds called carvacrol and thymol; both have shown antibacterial and anti-fungal properties. This oil can even help support someone with SIBO.
Always remember, the higher your GOOD bacteria, the lower your BAD bacteria level in your gut and the healthier your microbiome!
