Dysbiosis is an alternative medical condition synonymous with Colitis in orthodox medicine. It refers to multiple imbalances induced between the common beneficial flora found on the walls of the large intestine. This beneficial common flora is collectively referred to as microbiome. The dysbiosis messes up the balanced microbiome in the large intestine leading to over growth of fungus and harmful bacteria over beneficial bacteria.

Dysbiosis-syndrome



Excessive fungus leads to an excessive release of their toxin aflatoxin which is harmful to the human body. Excessive harmful bacteria leads to the release of bacterial toxins which in turn causes inflammation in the affected organ. Beneficial bacterial becomes ineffective when outnumbered and overpowered by the other dominating groups. This imbalance has one explanation only: slow unnoticed growing Dysbiosis for years until diagnosed by abdominal palpation or the appearance of severe symptoms.

Benefits of normal Microbiomes in the body:

  • Builds immunity
  • Prevents intestinal inflammation
  • Prevents leakage across the intestinal wall
  • Builds Vitamin B
  • Builds micronutrients
  • Builds Vitamin K
  • Promotes strong defense.

There are three factors that cause dysbiosis in the large intestine:

  1. Lack of breastfeeding at birth may be the leading cause of dysbiosis. If not corrected at an early age, this condition may lead to many health abnormalities collectively called dysbiosis of the colon.
  2. Excessive usage of antibiotics in infancy, childhood or in adulthood is another major cause of dysbiosis in the large intestine. Excessive usage of antibiotics may cancel the benefits of breastfeeding.
  3. Combination of lack of breastfeeding and excessive antibiotics usage would lead to a severe dysbiosis which accelerate the presence of abnormal symptoms in the body.

The transfer of body fluids infected with yeast between spouses can cause vaginal dysbiosis or urethral dysbiosis.

How to treat Dysbiosis

A person suffering from Dysbiosis symptoms should consult a Naturopath to properly treat the condition. Mishandling the treatment of dysbiosis may lead to further problems. After a careful examination and palpitation of the abdomen, a Naturopath would prescribe the suitable amount of Caprylic Acid, Borax, Oil of Oregano, Probiotics and Enzymes. The Naturopath would further prescribe the right anti fungal diet and colon irrigation therapy.

  • In late stages, the condition would become
    • Irritable Bowel syndrome (IBS) with or without rectal bleeding
    • Irritable Bowel disease (IBD) with or without rectal bleeding

Factors that would heighten dysbiosis:

Dietary factors such as the consumption of

  • Foods baked with yeast (Bread, Cakes)
