issues in natural health.
• We will discuss the dangers of probiotic therapy and how
you can prevent illness.
• This presentation will educate the consumer on
combining antibiotics and probiotic therapy.
• We will also discuss terms that are associated in natural
health concerning probiotic therapy.
Digestive Terms
• Gastroenterologist - A Medical Doctor specialized in digestive health.
• Lactose – Sugars from milk
• Lactase – enzymes that are in the digestive track that eat lactose sugars.
• Probiotic – This is fuel (sugars) lactose for the helpful bacteria.
• Appendix – This is the tail of the digestive track that supplies good bacteria.
• Insulin – a hormone that is secreted by the pancreas to lower blood sugar
levels
• Glycemic index – The act of the body recognizes new food (carbohydrates)
which raises the blood sugar level.
• Glycogen – Sugars that are stored in the liver for use when the blood sugar
level fall below normal.
• OTC – Over the counter
• Flora – the flow or movement of fluid, bacteria, and Ph of tissues.
Forms of Bacteria
• There are many forms of bacteria
that can invade our digestive
system but the good bacteria will
combat the bad bacteria.
• Good bacteria are formed and
distributed from the appendix.
When the appendix can not
replenish more good bacteria
then supplements may be taken.
• It is important to ensure that you
are not taking too many probiotic
because this may cause adverse
reactions.
Acidophilus
• Acidollpilus is a bacteria that normally live
in the human intestines and in the flora of
the vagina.
• Most stores sell supplemental acidophilus
over the counter in the digestive section.
• Acidophilus can be helpful in the
defending the body against food borne
illness, worms, and other parasites that
may cause you to get sick.
• Acidophilus feed on the bacteria that is
usually in yogurt or milk products.
• Supplemental acidophilus should not be
taken if the patient is on conventional or
herbal antibiotics because it will begin to
eat the antibiotics or slow down your
recovery time.
• You may replace acidophilus bacteria after
your antibiotic regimen is complete.
Bifidobacterium
• Bifidobacterium is one of the
natural bacteria that resides in
the gut and the vagina.
• This bacteria is helpful in
maintaining a healthy flora in the
gut and promoting proper
digestion.
• This bacteria also eats bad
bacteria (food borne bacteria)
and is a defender in maintaining
proper digestive health.
• Bifidobacterium feeds on
probiotic sugars from food
sources (prebiotics).
Lactobactullus Acidophilus
• This bacteria is found is found in
yogurt and is very good in
replacing good bacteria in the
colon (gut).
• The bacteria is actually a form of
yeast that when cultured in
yogurt it can bring good benefits
in restoring the natural flora in
the colon.
• This bacteria has been know to
kill yeast infections of the vagina
area, candida, and thrush.
