Lena's Health Nugget: The Ecosystem Within

What’s the Weather Forecast for your body today?

  • Wild Storms
  • Heatwave
  • Earthquake, maybe?

Or will everything be clear skies, peaceful and total calm?

Your body is a Climate Factory with the same Ecosystem as the world around you.

Do you have continual digestion problems, Acid Reflux, stomach pains, bloating and gas? Throbbing headaches and fevers, for seemingly no reason at all? Recurring colds or sinus infections?

All this, despite the pharmaceutical drugs your doctor has prescribed to relieve the symptoms?

That’s because your “ecosystem” is out of whack.

Take a moment to read Lena’s research and thoughts on all this and how you can to turn your ecosystem into Paradise, naturally, without drugs.

The Ecosystem Within YOU

© By Lena Sanchez

Bet you didn’t know you had a whole ecosystem living within you, did you?

You’ve read about the environmental ecosystem in danger from all the pollutants in this world, but not about the ecosystem within your own body!

You may not know YOU ARE AN ECOSYSTEM and your ecosystem is in as much danger as our world’s ecosystem, from all the medications, pesticides and environmental pollution ingested, slathered on and inhaled.

Your body houses this unique, balanced ecosystem, beginning with the stomach, then miles of large and small intestine in charge of distributing the nutrients to nourish your organs. Residing in this ecosystem is more than 400 species of bacteria.

Bacterium isn’t always bad! In fact, these bacterial colonies function in harmony with one another and if either is out of balance, your system is going to go awry at some point in time.

Your ecosystem is made up of three main types of friendly bacterium:

  • Lactobacillus acidophilus
  • Bifido-bacterium bifidum
  • Lactobacillus bulgaricus

Acidophilus works in the small intestine. Bifidus predominates in the large intestine and bulgaricus is a transient bacterium that passes through the entire intestinal tract.

These bacteria exist outside the body as well, but not in the ordinary places you would expect. These bacterium are vital to your health! If you to ingest an antibiotic, anti-inflammatory (Advil, aspirin, Motrin, Aleve, etc.) drink or bathe in chlorinated water, you kill both friendly and unfriendly bacteria, as well as cause mutated, harmful bacteria.

You have set up an unbalanced ecosystem.

One of many problems caused by taking antibiotics are yeast infections. No fun! and can be dangerous if left to run amok in the body. Another problem is chronic diarrhea.

In addition to antibiotics, you are being bombarded with food additives, chlorinated water and medications upsetting to the balance of your ecosystem flora.

Hormonal drugs, such as birth control pills and cortisone are especially detrimental to the body’s ecosystem. Your body’s immune system is so strong and fights so hard to stay healthy, you may not even notice the imbalance for years, but it will catch up to you eventually.

One way of balancing out your body’s ecosystem is with Probiotics. Probiotics improve liver and circulatory functions, improve resistance to allergies and decrease the presence of yeast infections.

Probiotics are housed in foods and supplements that enhance and restore the helpful bacteria. Small amounts are found in foods like yogurt and fermented dairy products.

Larger amounts are found in probiotic supplements found in your local health food store or Acidophilus Milk in the dairy case.

If you have encountered any of the aforementioned – antibiotics, chlorinated water (chlorine by-products exist in over-the-counter bottled water as well,) hormones, birth control pills, cortisone or anti-inflammatories – you need to get your ecosystem back into balance now before other systems start to break down.

You say, “…but, I’m not ill!”

No, you may not feel as if you are now, but if you frequently catch colds, have fever blisters, vaginal or rectal itching, diarrhea, either chronic or intermittent, dry skin, allergies or a host of other small annoying symptoms, you could very well be on your way to becoming seriously ill!

To balance your systems, talk to your local health food store nutritionists to get the proper probiotics for you. Or do like I do and take Pro-Biotic Max from Wayne Garland’s arsenal of nutrients and supplements.

Pro-Biotic Max has the correct amounts of acidophilus, lactobacillus and other needed bacteria with which to balance out your system.

My wish is for you to have a long life and part of that requires a Healthy ecosystem!

Pro-Biotic Max – Restore Your Body’s Natural Ecosystem

Good bacteria are an integral part of normal immune system support and are important in synthesizing certain vitamins and short-chain fatty acids to support a healthy intestinal lining and bolster immunity.

Healthy people usually have a ratio of approximately 85% good to 15% potentially harmful organisms in the intestinal tract. Daily exposure to environmental toxins such as chlorinated water, meat, dairy and antibiotics change the optimal microbial balance essential for good health.

Pro-Biotic MaxTM contains a blend of four probiotic strains; Lactobacillus acidophilus, Lactobacillus bulgaricus, Bidiobacterium bidus and Streptococcus thermophilus, totaling approximately 7.5 billion live bacteria per gram.

These “friendly bacteria” are blended in a base of Chamomile flowers, Orange blossoms, Slippery Elm Bark and Jerusalem Artichoke to support the probiotics through digestion in the stomach and into the middle GI tract for increased absorption of nutrients and improved elimination of toxic compounds.
