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.

The Probiotic Revolution

“Probiotic research is transforming our understanding of human health. We’ve been learning that probiotics are incredibly valuable for maintaining good health.”

The powerful news is that certain strains of probiotics produce highly specialized health benefits.” says Ross Pelton.

Natural Pharmacist Ross PeltonRoss Pelton brands himself as ‘The Natural Pharmacist’. Besides being a pharmacist, he also has a Ph.D. in psychology and is a clinical nutritionist.

He has authored 10 books to date. American Druggist Magazine has named him as one of the the top 50 most influential pharmacists in the USA because of his educational contribution in the field of complementary medicine.

This new research into the Human Microbiome is what Ross calls “The Probiotic Revolution”.

What is the Latest News From The Human Microbiome Research Project?

  • Having a healthy, balanced amount of good gut bacteria is most critical for health
  • All disease stems from Dysbiosis
  • Every healing protocol should start with the gut
  • There are 100 trillion organisms that live in our gastrointestinal system

Ross gives us an in depth explanation of the Human Microbiome Research. He is an expert on the subject and has an engaging way to educate on a serious topic. We are so honored that we had a chance to talk with him and share his wealth of knowledge on health and wellness.

Dr. Ohhira’s Probiotics are Premium

Dr. Ohhira’s: The World’s Best Premium Probiotic

Ross Pelton -The Natural Pharmacist

Ross Pelton -The Natural Pharmacist

Ross Pelton, the author of this article, happens to be one of the first people I met when I came to live in the United States 37 years ago. He is currently the Scientific Director for Essential Formulas who distribute Dr. Ohhira’s probiotics that we recommend to many of our patients. He is a pharmacist and a true expert on pharmaceutical drugs and their life-altering side effects. He is also a clinical nutritionist and helps people with diet, nutrition and natural therapies. He truly is an expert in helping his clients integrate the best of both worlds to achieve improvment in their health.

Here’s an article that he published in April of this year. Check him out on Facebook, The Natural Pharmacist.

He writes:
Dr. Ohhira’s probiotics are the world’s most popular premium probiotic supplement and the most effective product to remodel and optimize functioning to the human gastrointestinal tract. It has won numerous International Supplement Awards, including Best Supplement Award, by Better Nutrition Magazine for six consecutive years running. I want to explain the reasons why Dr. Ohhira’s probiotics are so unique.

Fermentation:

Dr. Ohhira’s probiotics are allowed to grow in huge fermentation vats (shown above) for three (Original Formula) or five years (Professional Formula). During this time, the bacteria are producing a wide range of nutrients and immune system enhancing compounds that other probiotic products don’t begin to produce until they get established in the GI tract. Along with the beneficial bacteria, each capsule of Dr. Ohhira’s contains a therapeutic dose of immune system enhancing compounds. No other probiotic product in the world is produced using this type of fermentation process for the bacteria.

Multi-strain product: Dr. Ohhira’s probiotics contain 12 synergistic strains of beneficial bacteria. Because individual strains of bacteria provide different biological functions, a multi-strain product can provide a broader range of benefits.

Proprietary Enterococcus faecalis TH10: This is a strain of lactic acid-producing bacteria that was discovered by Dr. Ohhira and is only available in Dr. Ohhira’s probiotic products. TH10 is one of the strongest anti-microbial probiotics that has ever been discovered. To date, TH10 has proven to be over 6 times stronger than any other known strain of bacteria.

Prebiotics:

Prebiotics are compounds that are “food” for the probiotic bacteria. A blend of 92 nutrition-rich fruits, vegetables, seaweeds and mushrooms are periodically added to the fermentation vats at seasonally appropriate times which provides the growing strains of probiotic bacteria with unique natural energy-rich prebiotic food supply. When encapsulated, each capsule of Dr. Ohhira’s contains the beneficial strains of probiotic bacteria plus the nutrient-dense prebiotics which allow the bacteria to thrive. No other probiotic product provides such a rich supple of prebiotic ingredients along with the probiotics.

Organic acids:

One of the important functions of probiotics is the production of compounds called short-chain fatty acids (SCFAs) such as lactic acid, acetic acid, propionic acid and butyric acid. These weakly acidic compounds create a slightly acidic environment in the intestinal tract which is the optimal condition to support the growth of beneficial bacteria while inhibiting the growth of pathological bacteria. The strains of bacteria in Dr. Ohhira’s probiotics have been shown to be strong producers of these organic short-chain fatty acids.

No refrigeration:

Because the fermentation process takes place at ambient room temperatures, Dr. Ohhira’s probiotics are stable at room temperature and do not require refrigeration. They have an impressive 3-year stable shelf life.

Patented Capsule Design:

The capsule for Dr. Ohhira’s probiotics is designed to stay hard in the harsh acid environment in the stomach. It then becomes porous in the more alkaline environment in the small intestine. Hence, the probiotics are preferentially released in the small intestine where they begin to provide their wide range of health benefits.

Effective Against Pathogens:

Dr. Ohhira’s probiotics have been shown to be effective several key pathogens including the cancer-causing bacteria Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori) and Clostridium difficile or C. diff. Also, in cell culture studies, Dr. Ohhira’s probiotics have been shown to kill MRSA which is the abbreviation for methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus. MRSA is currently a serious global health crisis because it has become resistant to nearly all antibiotics. So, Dr. Ohhira’s, which are non-prescription over-the-counter probiotics have been shown to be effective against some of the world’s most serious pathological organisms.

Other Benefits:

Dr. Ohhira’s probiotics are also non-GMO, non-dairy, gluten-free and 100% vegan.
