Why does disease begin in the digestive tract?
digestive tract is your first line of defense when it comes
to your health. This is because of the good bacteria that
resides there. That is why the use of Probiotics is so
Think of Probiotics - the good bacteria as guards against
incoming invaders. Having a good number of these beneficial
bacteria in our digestive tract guards us against a whole range
of health problems and disorders. 85% good bacteria to 15%
bad bacteria is just about right.
Sadly, because of such things as stresses of modern life,
the antibiotics you may have taken and having a digestive
system that is not slightly acid, you likely do not have
enough of these good bacteria. This has a great affect on
your health and well being.
So how long have your Probiotics been out of balance?
First lets find out whether you got the healthy bacteria you
needed as a baby.
Were you born naturally or delivered by Cesarean section?
It makes a difference. It is by passing through the birth canal
that a baby is introduced to the Bifidobacteria infantis and other
These friendly bacteria enter the baby's intestines through the
mouth and attach themselves to sites on the gastrointestinal
wall before the unfreindly microorganisms from the outside world
try to do the same.
Breast-feeding then fosters the growth of Bifidobacteria,
particularly Bifidobacteria infantis. If cesarean delivered babies
are then bottle-fed as well, they end up with adult-type microflora
that are not optimal for their health.
If you know that you were delivered by cesarean, or bottle fed, and
you have health problems, your digestive tract could use some help.
Find a high quality probiotic supplements and stick with it for at
least 3 Months.
You will find that you have an increase in better health, you may
have less allergies, less constipation and less bad breath.
