Not on Top of Your Game? It Could Be Microbiome Dysbiosis

Natural Pharmacist Ross Pelton

Ross Pelton,  The Natural Pharmacist talks with us about the Microbiome, dysbiosis and pathobiome. Click Here to see his interview.

Our gut microbiome is made up of over 100 trillion organisms, it’s a delicate balance which is made up of both good and bad bacteria. Hopefully more good.

What is Dysbiosis?

 Essentially it’s when your good gut bacteria is out of balance with your bad gut bacteria. When the good outweighs the bad you have dysbiosis. Ross calls Microbiome dysbiosis the ‘pathobiome’.

When you have dysbiosis or a ‘pathobiome’ you will experience symptoms.

What are the pathobiome Symptoms?

  • gas
  • bloating
  • diarrhea
  • constipation

When you have these symptoms it’s important not to ignore them.

These symptoms are your bodies warning signs.

Think of them as red flags that something is wrong.

What does a pathobiome lead to?

  • gastrointestinal disorders like IBS, Crohn’s and Ulcerative Colitis
  • extraintestinal disorders such as asthma, allergies, heart disease and obesity
  • mood disorders such as depression and anxiety

ADResearch compiled by the US National Library of Medicine from over 90 different studies in the last 10 years states that, “there is growing evidence that dysbiosis of the gut microbiota is associated with the pathogenesis of both intestinal and extra-intestinal disorders.”

Why do people get an upset microbiome?

  • Antibiotics are the #1 reason; antibiotics kill all the good bacteria.
  • Acid suppressing drugs; too low levels of acidity encourage the growth of bad bacteria
  • Steroid drugs
  • Birth control
  • Chemotherapy
  • Diet consisting of processed food and high in carbohydrates.
  • Pesticides in agricultural food supply
  • Environmental toxins: mercury, lead and arsenic
  • Chlorinated water which kills bacteria; good and bad
  • Not feeding your probiotics; you need to fertilize the good bacteria with prebiotic foods or a prebiotic supplement

“Remember every time you eat you are feeding 100 trillion guests.” thats good advice from Ross Pelton.

This Is What Can Trigger Allergies

Triggers for Allergies; Candida and Gut Dysbiosis

Due to the nature of biology, individuals react differently to various substances. One person may be greatly impacted by one product, and another not impacted at all. For the very sensitive, simply touching a substance with your hands may cause a severe reaction through absorption from the skin.

What Causes Allergic Reactions?

The cause of an allergic reaction may be biological, or due to a possible genetic weakness that was triggered by something in the environment. To learn more about this please listen to my podcast interview with epigenetics expert Dr. Bruce Lipton.

The intestinal system has a delicate balance that can be easily disrupted by many different aspects. Common issues can arise from an overgrowth of Candida/yeast, heavy metals, viruses, vaccines, food chemicals, air pollution, sugar, or a diet high in processed carbohydrates.

Many children contract Candida/yeast overgrowth in their gut from their mother while in utero, or while passing through the birth canal. This creates weaknesses in, not only their gut, but also in their immune system. Additionally, this adds a toxic load to their biology and sets them up for poor detoxification channels at birth.

Children with a weak digestive tract do not usually absorb the nutrients properly from the food they eat. The nutrition may not be getting in even if they are eating healthy foods. If their body is not absorbing the nutrients from the food properly, then their body becomes starved of vital nutrients which also feed the brain.

Home Gut Tests

There is an at-home candida test that is free and easy to do.  CLICK HERE to learn more about candida and get this free test.

You can also purchase an at-home test. Genova Laboratories carry various types of home tests for different issues. Choose the test that is best for your symptoms or call us if you need help. One test for general microbial analysis will indicate if you have candida overgrowth or an imbalance in your good and bad bacteria. The Genova Intestinal Permeability Test will detect if there is a problem with leaky gut.
