Dear reader,

We are pleased that you are dealing with the life-changing topic “The human microbiome“.

If the microbiome is successfully steered in the right direction, health and well-being can be improved to a degree that no other measure would be possible. [1]

Humans consist to 99.9% of microbe DNA [2]. This fact already shows the tremendous influence our little inhabitants have on our lives.

 

✅ We explain the topic to you scientifically up-to-date and correctly, but easily understandable

✅ You will receive a free online test, with which you can check the status of your microbiome yourself can only check for a few minutes

✅ We will give you an exact step-by-step guide on how you can improve your microbiome extremely

 

 

What is the microbiome?

The microbiome describes the totality of all microorganisms that colonize us. This includes all bacteria, viruses , mushrooms and < a href=”https://www.volkskrankheit-parasiten.org/en/parasiten/” target=”_blank” rel=”noopener”>Parasites. [3]

It is a dynamic process that is constantly changing. The microbiome is subject to permanent development. It reacts to all influences, for example: fever, change in diet, treatment with cosmetics or the use of antibiotics. [4]

Our intestinal bacteria have a particularly great influence on the microbiome. If you are also interested in this topic, then click on this field:

 

Function of microbes

Without the microbiome, no life is possible. If we think of the body as a factory, our organs are the machines and the microbes are the workers. We are hosting, so to speak, an army of microbial worker bees. They:

– support our body functions
– break down our food
– decide what is absorbed or what is excreted
– produce substances that our body cannot and cannot produce
– fight many battles for our body cells. [5]

As a consideration we offer you food and accommodation.

Digression

The gastrointestinal tract alone houses trillion microorganisms. In summary, they are referred to as the gastrointestinal microbiota. [6]

 

Composition of the microbiome

The living beings can be divided into 3 groups: [7]

1. Commensal organisms : live peacefully with us
2. Symbiotic organisms : help our health
3. Parasitic organisms : cause only harm

A miracle of nature: how the microbiome is created

We get our first germs from our mother when we pass the birth canal. [8]

Even during the pregnancy other microorganisms begin to develop (especially lactobacilli) in the vagina of the expectant mother. [9]

In the last trimester, the number of Proteo- and the actinobacteria. These encourage breast growth to ensure adequate nutrition for the child. [10] In addition, the mother gives the fetus via the placenta protective antibodies with. [11]

The number of bacteria that colonize the intestine increases steadily within the first few weeks of life. The first bacterial strains include Escherichia coli, Enterococci, lactobacilli, Bifidobacteria, Bacteroides and Clostridia. [12]

Everything about the exciting topic of “intestinal bacteria” can be found here:

 

The further development of the microbiome depends on various factors:

– The exposure to pathogens such as mushrooms and Parasites
– The nutrition the mother in breastfeeding
– The own nutrition
– The exposure of
– Taking
antibiotics
– The exposure to
environmental toxins, such as toxic metals

 

Where is the microbiome located?

It can be found in and on our entire body:

How microbes affect us

The composition of the microbiome largely determines:

– The body weight
– The intelligence
– The well-being
– The state of health
– Our mood
– The mental state

 

Effects on the brain and psyche

The various ways in which the microbiome affects our brain is known as microbiome gut millet. [13]

If the microbiome is disturbed, the so-called Leaky Gut Syndrome occur. As a result, harmful microorganisms and toxins violate the blood-brain barrier and get into the brain. [14]

There they trigger inflammation. A correlation to Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, diabetes, dementia and mental illness has already been proven. [15]

Oscillibacter bacteria, which are ins Enter the brain, for example, create a chemical compound that dampens the nerve activity in the brain and thus creates a Depression can trigger. [16]

Digression

A healthy gut microbiome produces short-chain fatty acids. These can protect the blood-brain barrier and even close it again. An intact bras protects the brain from microbes. [17]

Even serious syndromes in children appear to be correlated to the microbes in the body. An example: According to several studies, children with Autism Disorders have a completely different microbiome than healthy people. Even if they are siblings. [18]

The behavior also seems to be significantly related to the microbiome. Research has shown that when less anxious mice receive the germs from anxious animals, they become more anxious themselves. And accordingly, the germs of brave mice can calm the fearful ones. [19] studies have also shown that a Stool transplantation can change the entire emotional-psychological feeling. [20]

 

Effect on physical health

When a person becomes ill, the microbiome is inevitably involved. Studies have shown that when a disease occurs, the microbiome is always in imbalance. [21]

The composition of the microbiome plays a decisive role in how the body defends itself against harmful pathogens. Microbes like Mycobacterium vaccae, for example, are able to influence the human immune system. [22]

Very young or particularly old people tend to be the most susceptible to disease because their microbiome has a lower biodiversity. [23]

The microbiome therapy

Aim of treatment

Important! Please read!

In order to understand how the microbiome can be improved, it is imperative to understand the basics first.

So first make sure you understand what the microbiome is made of. It is made up of:

1. Commensal organisms
have no proven positive effect on our health, but they do not harm us either. These representatives play no role in optimizing the microbiome.

2. Symbiotic organisms
help our health. They:

fight parasitic life forms
– unlock vital nutrients
– keep the intestinal lining intact
– produce digestive enzymes
– promote the immune system
– and much more

One goal of microbiome therapy is to promote these symbionts. The main helpers in the body are our “good” intestinal bacteria.

3. Parasitic life forms
have an exclusively damaging effect on the body. parasites include worms, leeches, Viruses, certain bacteria and some fungi or yeasts, e.g. Candida albicans. These life forms:

kill symbiotic organisms
– poison the organism
– rob important nutrients
– damage the intestinal lining
– cause inflammation
– inhibit the immune system
– are responsible for human diseases
– and much more

These organisms have to be removed from the microbiome.

 

The step-by-step instructions

1. Removing the parasitic organisms

The first step must be inevitably removing the parasitic Life forms be.

There are two reasons:

1. As long as they are in the system, they always keep the population of symbiotic organisms low.

2. An attempt to promote or supply the microorganisms that are positive for us is doomed to failure as long as the Parasites are still in the system. Because they kill the symbionts.

You can find out how to remove parasitic life forms from the microbiome in our large parasite cure guide. Click on this field:

 

2. Promote symbiotic life forms

As soon as the load on parasitic organisms has been minimized, the symbionts should be promoted in order to optimize the microbiome.

This will now be easy because the most serious inhibiting factor has been removed from the system.

You can find out how to strengthen and supply the microbes that are beneficial for our health here:

 

The healthy microbiome

After the two steps have been completed, the microbiome is balanced again and humans live in a cooperative togetherness with their microbes.

This self-contained system will then regulate itself. Parasitic life forms have no chance to settle and expand more.

Lasting, consistent health is possible.

 

 

FAQ: Questions and answers about the microbiome

Live bacteria taken in pill, powder, or liquid form. Unfortunately, in most cases it is pointless to take. Find out more

Prebiotics are indigestible foods or food components that promote the growth of beneficial microorganisms in the intestine. So they act as food for the intestinal bacteria.

This is a combination of prebiotics and probiotics found mainly in fermented foods such as sauerkraut, kimchi and kefir. Not only do they provide nourishment for the intestinal bacteria, they also contain lots of living bacteria.

An antibiotic is a substance, its effect

are not toxic to humans or animals, but are capable of damaging or killing microorganisms. Antibiotics only work against infections of bacterial origin. Taking antibiotics also harms the good intestinal bacteria.

It harms the symbionts and thus promotes the parasitic inhabitants of the microbiome. After antibiotic therapy, the intestinal flora normalizes much more slowly than previously thought. Even with good microbiome therapy, it can take more than 6 months for the intestinal microbiome to recover. [24]

No, this is not possible. Read here more to.

Fecal microbiota transplantation is used to restore a normal intestinal microbiome in patients with a dysbiosis-associated disease. Stool from a healthy person is transferred to a sick person.

90% of all patients with neurodermatitis and eczema harbor bacteria of the Staphylococcus aureus species. If these bacteria spread excessively, disease flare-ups occur because the microbial diversity of the skin microbiome decreases.
