This is Dr. Reiner KREMER with a very, very important subject: C. Difficile Infections are in public health new this week. Why? With many of us who visit friends in hospitals and nursing homes, these places have become petri dishes and major sources of C. Diff infection and re-infection.
It is of utmost importance that we don’t expose ourselves to and contract a C. difficile infection–good hand hygiene is key, but most importantly you need a healthy gut microbiome.
When it comes to C. Difficile—Be aware of your contacts and possible exposures. An ounce of prevention is worth more than a pound of cure.
I am licensed medical practitioner in chiropractic, naturopathic and allopathic medicine and practice functional family medicine
So let’s get started, what we are about to share can significantly improve your health and prevent you contracting C. Diff infection:
Probiotics are microbes, bacteria and fungi, that can have a significant beneficial effect on health, and can be safely used for nutritional and therapeutic applications.
Bacteria compete with one another to create “ecosystems”, balancing good versus bad.
Probiotics work in the gut by increasing the number of healthy microbes, keeping harmful bugs in check.
Historically, medical research has primarily focused on developing antibiotics to kill harmful bacteria rather than promote the growth of good bacteria.
Beneficial bacteria support a healthy immune system, better mood, improve absorption of nutrients. Help with infection prevention, irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) and constipation and prevent leaky gut and leaky brain.
Studies have demonstrated that Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium probiotics promote normal bowel movements and help with irritable bowel syndrome.
Probiotics also promote vaginal balance, prevent unpleasant discharge and itching that occurs with the loss of vaginal lactobacilli contributing to imbalances in the vaginal microbiome, making probiotic supplementation necessary.
Probiotics defend against urinary tract infections by using lactobacilli, especially women with recurrent infections.
- Antibiotics may provide short term benefits, but kill good and bad bacteria non-selectively.
- Probiotics boost beneficial bacteria and help create a healthier microbiome in the body, reducing the impact of harmful bugs such as C. Diff
- Quality probiotics have been determined to be safe and can be taken during pregnancy.
WHAT ARE THE BEST PROBIOTICS?
These specific 10 probiotic strains have the best scientific documentation:
- Lactobacillus plantarum
- Lactobacillus acidophilus
- Lactobacillus rhamnosus
- Lactobacillus lactis
- Lactobacillus casei
- Lactobacillus bulgaris
- Lactobacillus salvarius
- Bifidobacterium bifidum
- Bifidobacterium breve
- Bifidobacterium longum
When CHOOSING a PROBIOTIC choose the Right Probiotic:
How? Look for the Highest quality and number of probiotic strains (10 is very good), look for the number of CFUs- colony forming units (50 Billion is most excellent), Look for where the probiotics are made– an approved USA facility is best. Read the label carefully.
I personally recommend the scientifically supported probiotic strains found in:
