If you think probiotics and other supplements are nourishing your microbiome… THINK AGAIN. Your microbiome is misunderstood and malnourished and it needs and requires a unique kind of nourishment. Understanding and nourishing the diversity of our microbial cell communities, as opposed to assaulting them with any kind of antibiotic or natural anti-infective agent helps to restore greater sustainability because our microbial ecosystem only thrives when all the interdependent microbial species are healthy too. A fuller and more diverse microbial community has been scientifically correlated with a healthier outcome (Scientific American 2012; Nature 2010).
Food-borne biofilms are found in our water and in a high percentage of packaged foods because of the overuse and misuse of antibiotics in animals and humans, causing 100,000 deaths a year (Science Daily 2010) and are “the root of persistent and chronic infections” (Science 1999:21). In Science 2012:21, Nobel Laureate, Dr. Cho and fellow researchers state; “We want to make these bugs homeless…they include 99% of all pathogen and escape immune surveillance and antibiotic therapy.”
Why are we experiencing a massive undetected biofilm epidemic? In Nature Reviews 2004, Dr. Paul Stoodley of the Center for Biofilm Engineering at Montana State University, attributes much of the lag in studying biofilms to the difficulties of assessment stating, “biofilms are extremely difficult to culture… the need to master such difficult laboratory techniques has deterred many scientists from attempting to work with biofilms. Since genetic research has failed to uncover the cause of any of the common chronic diseases, biofilms are finally – just over the past few years – being studied more intensely, and being given the credit they deserve as serious infectious entities, capable of causing a wide array of chronic illnesses.” Biofilms are linked to viral respiratory diseases (Pulmonary Pharmacology 2008 & Nature 2000:407); ear and sinus infections (JAMA 2006:296); stroke, heart disease and diabetes (British Medical Journal 1989; Journal of Cardiovascular Risks 1999); brain, anxiety and memory issues (Journal of American Geriatrics Society 2007:55); pain and inflammation (Autoimmunity Reviews 2004:3); and stubborn bladder infections, UTI and kidney stones (Antimicrobial & Chemotherapy 2001:3 & Annual Reviews of Microbiology 2003:57).
Microbe-killing agents or probiotics not in the right microbe-to-microbe ratio and potencies are microbiome disruptors and stressors that weaken the microbiome so biofilms attach, grow and get stronger. On the other hand, by nourishing and energizing the microbiome with novel pulsed SPT polarities in MyrrhFood Plus™ and feeding it Quantabiotica™ probiotics, the microbiome may be better able to target the ion channels and cell clusters of biofilms so they are detached and safely removed as a stressor to our immune system and microflora.**
For the past decade, Dr. Yanick and other researchers studied the microcolony architecture of mutant biofilms with their high mutation frequencies and polarities from man-made pollutants with positive ionic charges (Molecular Microbiology 2006:60; Critical Reviews Biochemistry and Molecular Biology 2007:42; Nature 1997:387; Proc National Academy Sciences 2008:105: Journal Bacteriology 2008:190). Since biofilms catalyze the electrochemical anode reactions by metabolizing fuel and utilizing the anode as an electron receptor, the dual correction of nutrients and extracellular matrix polarity interrupts the biofilm catalytic densities and power generation (Energy & Environmental Sciences 2009:2), allowing for the detachment of a biofilm via quorum sensing, a known and documented biofilm dispersal mechanism (PLOS Pathogens 2008:4; Journal Infectious Disease 2000:182; Infectious Immunity 2003:71).
To nourish & fortify microbiome, use at the first indication of a cold or flu symptom. Timing is so important (patients need to have these products on hand)! The key is to use this protocol early and not days after a patient comes to you with a full-blown influenza or flu.
