Human and Animal
Importance of restoring and maintaining beneficial bacteria, the so-called “friendly flora” in the intestines. These bacteria are killed off by chlorine in your water supply, by Veterinary Anti-biotics, by preservatives in food and by alcohol, and by other factors.
When the beneficial bacteria are gone, “bad” bacteria, molds, and yeasts (also known as Candida) can then rage out-of-control.
Immune system overload, malnutrition, skin and ear problems, and many other problems shortly follow this.
Which are the most commonly seen animal health issues presented today.
Afflicted by candidiasis, the hidden curse. Candiasis, an overgrowth of yeast (Candida) in the body, can be a key contributing factor in causing or worsening:
* Food allergies reactions
* Digestive problems (causing as bad a symptoms as malabsorption syndrome)
* Sensitivity to tobacco and other odors
* Other immune-related disorders, yeast skin infection and ear infections!
* Skin rashes, odour to skin, itching, red.
* Joint and muscle pain
The key to overcoming many such conditions is to undo the actions which caused them to occur in the first place, while restoring balance to the body. E.G. just eating organic/natural Yogurt, daily for a min of least 12 months is still not enough.
The gastrointestinal tract’s balance of beneficial flora is most commonly disrupted by:
* Antibiotic usage
* Excessive sugar consumption ( found in commercial pet foods and biscuits)
* Drinking chlorinated water
* A diet consisting chiefly of processed tin foods
* Prescription anti-inflammatory drugs and painkillers
* A diet high in red meats or rich, fatty foods.
Many people and animals lack sufficient friendly bacteria in their digestive tracts, and are often overrun with unfriendly bacteria and yeasts at the same time.
These people / animals are in fact being simultaneously poisoned and starved (malnourished).
The effects of the imbalance of intestinal flora are all too often seen in the failing health and vitality of millions of middle-aged and elderly individuals.
However, if you have had antibiotics, a high stress level, have been exposed to chlorinated water, or have any of the signs or symptoms of ill health below, you may have a bacterial imbalance beyond the ability of such foods to resolve.
If you or your pet have symptoms of any of the below conditions:
* Chronic fatigue
* Frequent diarrhea
* Frequent intestinal gas
* Frequent constipation
* Poor immune response
* Chronic bladder infections
* Chronic vaginal infections
* Allergies to grass, pollen and foods etc
* Skin Issues
* Rapid onset of osteoporosis
* Vitamin B deficiencies
* Dairy product sensitivities
* Chronic bad breath
Once again the gut flora needs to be repair and restored. So to maintain a healthy and strong immune system.
There are now many very effective pro biotic supplements available from you Health Food stores. Discussion on what to use is suggested at end of subject on yeast healing relief.
A pet or human that has had any Antibiotics any time in their life, will need to be taking these flora immune building supplements for a min of 6 months.
Note: When ever needing Antibiotic treatment, consider using hampls’ “ Infection Fighter” ( herbal formula ) or hampl’s “Infection Clear” (homeopathic formula) which is more suited for small animals. or use both treatments. www.hampl.com.au
They have never let me down, even in the most acute sepsis type cases.
How to rid this YEAST infection
The fungal yeast is in your tummy to stay for decades… Once you get too much yeast it will not leave on its own. Not in a year, not in ten years, not in your lifetime. And as long as it is there, it’s going to win sooner or later. So here is what you can do for a animal who has had or still has skin allergies, ear infections, smelly odour or ever had antibiotics.
1. First, kill the yeast. All this stuff is available at any health food store or on-line.
To do that, get one or two bottles of Olive leaf extract (herb) and Caproyl liquid (Caprylic acid) and take it for about two months.
Note: Instead of using the Caprylic acid capsules buy it in liquid form which is best absorbed and called Caproyl Medical Food 16.9 FL OZ (Item #: 111) Price: $29.55
from wholeapproach.com or find another source of this liquid. Each tablespoon releases 1600mg of caprylic acid.
Some more Info on “Caproyl” liquid (Caprylic Acid supplement)
Caprol, containing liquid caprylic acid (3600 mg per oz) and oleic acids, is a broad spectrum anti-fungal agent against Candida albicans and other fungi. In this program, caprylic acid acquires its needed sustained-release properties from gel, formed by the mixture of Caprol, colon cleansers, and water. This thick gel traps the caprylic acid and slows its transit through the colon. Uncontrolled surges of caprylic acid into the liver are the most probable cause of adverse reactions to caprylic acid: however, while in this gelled state, caprylic acid does not escape into the liver. It is no surprise, then, that no adverse reactions to this gelled form of caprylic acid have been reported, even among individuals who previously reacted to other caprylic acid products. Traditional caprylic acid preparations exist as capsules and tablets, but the preference is the liquid form. This mixing causes the caprylic acid to interact with the olive oil, thereby amplifying its fungicidal effects far beyond what caprylic acid has traditionally offered. Also, the Caprylic acid in Caprol, being a liquid, has a coating action on the intestinal wall, which tablets and capsules cannot match. As the liquid Caprol is dispersed in the Psyllium/Bentonite gel, it releases its caprylic acid throughout the entire length of the intestinal tract.”
2. Second, you need to restore the friendly bacteria. Don’t skimp on this part. Be sure you get a really excellent multi-strain probiotic.
For Australian’s a very powerful one that I found the very best is VSL#3 (powder in satchels) which is a live freeze dried powder, of lactic acid bacteria and bifidobacteria of at least 450 billion bacteria per sachet of 4.4g. You cannot buy them from anywhere else but from manufacturer. orphan.com.au If you prefer not to spend that much money on yourself or your pet, ask the Naturopath at the healthfood store a good brand ( they should always be stored in the fridge at all times) if the product is not then do not buy it.
For USA people product called “PB-8.” PB 8® Pro-Biotic Acidophilus is a combination of 8 types of beneficial bacteria. Primal Defense is another good one. So is Dr. Ohiras probiotic.
Note: You’ll want to keep giving or taking a good probiotic, ideally for the rest of your pet’s and your own life. That’s because unlike 150 years ago, we rarely eat fermented foods any more. As I mentioned above, yeast and friendly bacteria compete for space. If you run low on your bacteria, the yeast can move back in.
3. The third thing is to patch the holes left by the yeast. If you don’t patch them, you’ll end up with allergies, parasites running amok, and a whole lot more, all of it bad.
Here is were the Glutamine powder will help which is an amino acid that aids in muscle repair and boosting the immune system and help to repair the intestinal lining. To do this, get yourself some Glutamine powder, mix a teaspoon in water for yourself or mix in your pet’s yogurt. Twice a day. Or another excellent alternative, even better than glutamine by itself is a product called IntestiNew. Either one will work. the IntestiNew works a little faster.
4. The fourth thing you’ll probably want is a good digestive multi-enzyme.
When yeast is overrunning us, our digestion often gets stressed, and it needs some help. You take those when you eat. They help to prevent bloating and discomfort.
I really found the Hydrozyme tablets by Orthoplex. orthoplex.com.au very effective. Which helps reduce low stomach acid. Low stomach acid causes gastrointestinal issues, overgrowth of pathogens, malabsorption of minerals, vitamins and amino acids, protein and food sensitivities .
People often ask me which ones they should start with first. ( for themselves or their pets) I started with all the products at the same time. They work better when taken together.
