Stomach Health and other listener questions.  Do you suffer from Heartburn?  Or perhaps you know it by one of it’s other names such as GERD, or Acid Reflux.  Are you taking antacids or acid blocking medication?  Do you know if those medications are safe?  Are you aware of the FDA warnings regarding those medications?  In fact, is heartburn really that big of a deal?  I mean, there can’t be any serious long-term consequences, right?

In this episode of Dr. Andy’s Wellness Corner, Dr. Andy addresses several key listener questions.  However, the biggest of which involves acid reflux and the medications used to treat them.  In fact, there are also serious long-term consequences to both the medication and the disease.  Actually, the current theory behind the cause of heartburn is actually flawed.  In fact, many experts believe that heartburn is the result of too little stomach acid.  However, the exact opposite is true.  How can all of the experts be wrong?  If you tune in, Dr. Andy Explains how and why in this intriguing program.

Probiotics diversity and health…

Probiotics diversity:  Recent research discovered that our ancestors had more germs living inside them.  Is it possible that this diversity was the key to their health?

Probiotics diversity: When researchers looked at our ancestors the discovered several key factors about the germs living in and on them.  First, they found a more diverse population of germs.  Additionally, scientists discovered that helpful worms lived inside our ancestors.  In fact, the researcher suggests that these worms were just as helpful as the bacteria.

Now for the bad news…

Unfortunately, the study also shows that many of the helpful germs that lived in the bellies of our ancestors are extinct.  Sadly, bringing them back seems like an impossible task.  Additionally, while the evidence of helpful worms in their GI tract is strong, no one really knows which worms actually lived in side our ancestors.  Researchers only know that they came from a group of parasites called helminths.  As a result, some people now experiment with populating themselves with different types of helminths.  However, the type of worms they use are harmful, not helpful.  Sadly, this can lead to a host of problems.

What you can do Today…

Until researchers find out exactly what worms lived in our ancestors, you should avoid them.  In fact, the worms that lived in our ancestors may even be long extinct.  In the meantime, try to use the right combination of enzymes and probiotic supplements to create a healthy and diverse population in and on your body.  However, please remember these two key points:  First of all, these germs live in more places than your gut.  In fact, they live in your bladder, on your skin, in the birth canal, in the lungs and other locations.

Secondly, your body needs these helpful germs for immune health, behavioral health, mental health, brain health, digestive health and overall health.  In fact, they can even help your body keep allergies and inflammation at bay.   Lastly, it’s important to feed those probiotics with the right kinds of fiber from fresh fruits and vegetables.  We actually have a probiotic restoration system that helps your body repopulate a healthy and diverse population everywhere they should live; not just in the gut.

Children and Probiotics

Children and Probiotics: It seems that many adults are taking a probiotic these days.  In fact, I would venture to say that probiotics are probably one of the best selling supplements.  However, many do not realize that some children may need  probiotics as well.  This article will attempt to explain why.

Children and Probiotics

In order to explain why some children may need probiotics, I must first explain how the bacteria grow in a newborn.  Baby’s first exposure to bacteria happens in the birth canal.  Additionally, babies are born face down.  This means they are facing mother’s back side.  This ends up being their second dose of bacterial flora.  In fact, this jump starts the growth of beneficial bacteria in infants.  In fact, do you remember last week’s article when I stated there are probiotics in the gi tract, on the skin, in the bladder, reproductive organs and even the lungs?

An infant’s second exposure to probiotics is during breast feeding.  Actually, there are two sources during breast feeding.  First of all, the baby gets bacteria when their mouth contacts mom’s skin.  Meanwhile, the actual breast milk provides yet another source.  The final exposure comes from their environment.  In fact, there’s a reason many infants put everything in their mouth.  They’re growing their helpful bacterial population.

Things that hinder bacteria growth

Here are some problems that hinder the growth of probiotics.  A surgical birth (C-section) completely bypasses the birth canal.  In fact, it also bypasses and mom’s back side.  You see there are beneficial bacteria both places.  The germs in these locations jump start growth inside your newborn child.  With a surgical delivery, your baby never receives a dose of these helpful germs.  Using formula, or even bottle-feeding breast milk can also have an adverse effect.  Additionally, too sterile environment also limits exposure.  Use of antibacterial soaps actually kills off beneficial bacteria.  In fact, antibacterial soaps contain a highly cancerous chemical.  As a result, three states have completely banned their use.   Lastly, antibiotics will also kill the helpful germs in anyone.  While necessary, I always recommend a strong dose of probiotics during and after a course of antibiotics.

So, I think I can imagine what you’re thinking.  So what?  What exactly are the consequences to this?  In addition to digestive health, study after study shows that infants with a healthy probiotic population have many health benefits.  First of all, they are much less likely to develop behavioral problems when they get older.  These problems include ADHD, OCD, anxiety, depression, autism and much much more.  When they reach middle to old ages, they are also much less likely to be obese, develop diabetes, heart disease and many other life-shortening conditions.

Some Advice

If you’ve been paying attention, these simple tips can go a long way to help.  If you’re expecting, a vaginal birth is best.  Additionally, breast feeding is also preferred as well.  In fact, I recommend contacting the La Leche League for more advice.  Let your kids play in the dirt.  Keep them clean, but not too clean.  Kids with pets also have a healthy base of germs.  Lastly, avoid the use of antibacterial soap.

Each microbe as a specific job

Because each microbe in your body has a specific job, it’s important to know which ones you’re deficient in.  This is why before we put anyone on a generic probiotic, we perform scientific testing based on sound medical principals.  This way we can determine exactly how your body is deficient and provide the right enzymes and/or probiotics to help your body work properly.  In fact, I use five different probiotics in my office depending on the patient’s test results.
