Question:I am resident doctor from india. I had h.pylori infection .symptomatic from 4 years recently took eradication kit. There still mild cramp and burning sensation. I have thinning of my hair & my nails are very weak with ridges on them. Noticed muscles loss too with weakness mostly due to low acid and protein indigestion. How to treat the condition?
Most people with digestive problems have low hydrochloric acid or HCl. Having strong stomach acid is really beneficial for our health. It is essential for the proper absorption of certain vitamins and minerals. It kills bacteria and pathogens in food. It activates pepsin enzymes that starts to digest protein in the stomach. Finally it stimulates bile production for better digestion of fats. There are various, natural ways to naturally improve HCl and upper digestive function. Supplement with betaine hydrochloride and pepsin available in health food shops. Take one tablet with the first bite of food and increase the dose by one extra tablet at each subsequent meal until you feel a burning sensation in your stomach, then drop back to the previous dose for the correct amount to supplement. If you start experiencing a burning sensation again, reduce the number of tablets.
This supplement will actually increase your own production of hydrochloric acid over time. You can also benefit from a high quality probiotic with digestive enzymes like CanXida Restore. CanXida Restore has 6 probiotic strains beneficial for gut dysbiosis plus digestive enzymes for optimal gut support. A simple Ayurvedic remedy is to slowly chew on a thin slice of fresh ginger with a pinch of salt 5-10 minutes before meals. Make sure to implement lifestyle changes like chew your food thoroughly, eat the protein portion of the meal first , start your meal with a small salad of bitter leaves, add acid to your meals and avoid having too much water with meals.
Question: I’m still struggling with bowel issues. I have eliminated dairy and gluten (other than sourdough bread) and I no longer have bloating or heartburn. However, even though Im having a small bowel movement once or twice a day, I have a lot of rectum itching and irritation. It occasionally bleeds a little when I wipe. I have had several tests and ultra sounds done and the doctor just said my bowels are constipated. He wants to prescribe IBS medication and Metamucil. The canxida supplements do help (like I said I’m still having small daily bowel movements) so I don’t understand the constipation. I’ve also followed Dr Bakkers videos and had 3 colon irrigation treatments. I also have been mixing benodite clay with slippery elm powder in the mornings. What could be going on? I had a GI map stool test and know that I have high candida. I also have taken several steroids in the past because of poison ivy rashes over the years.
Constipation is often a symptom of an underlying problem. The following are some of the many causes of constipation: Not eating enough fiber, not drinking enough water, not moving enough, or putting off going to the toilet. It can also happen in people with IBS (irritable bowel syndrome) or people who are experiencing diarrhea from an infection. It can also be a sign of an inflammatory bowel disease like Chrohn or ulcerative colitis. It is sometimes due to an impacted stool from severe constipation. I would advice to seek medical health to identify the underlying cause. If you suspect a yeast or bacterial infection taking antifungals like CanXida Remove can help. Any sudden changes in our bowel movements is usually due to an infection of either bacteria or excessive yeast growth in our gut which alters our healthy microbiome.
Additionally it is important to start adding a daily probiotic like CanXida Restore which will help recolonize and restore your gut with good bacteria that can ward off pathogens. In this case it is essential to focus on gut health particularly in repopulating your gut with the good bacteria. Medication like steroids, laxatives and even medical therapies like colon irrigation can all have a negative impact in your gut flora. Besides a high quality probiotic with multiple strains like Restorre tt is also important to increase your fiber intake to at least 25-30 grams a day. These will help nourish your healthy bacteria colonies while the probiotic will introduce more beneficial strains like Lactobacillus. Try incorporating more fiber rich foods such as beans/lentils, avocado, flax/chia seeds, berries daily, or consider adding a fiber supplement like psyillium husk 10g/d. Fiber can help by regulating your gut motility and it helps nourish your gut bacteria. It is also helpful to begin a program of Kegel excercises to stregthen your pelvic muscles, this is especially important as we get older. Having a bathroom routine is also useful, try to schedule your bowel movements the same time everyday, this will start training your body when to go to help with your bowel movements.
Question: Is it possible that after the second comprehensive stool test the good bacterias go down to a certain degree? And why is that? Does that mean you need a different kind of probiotic/ Enzymes? Is it also possible that another parasite can sneak in, even if you were successfully treating one kind of parasite? And why is that? Are too many supplements hard on the liver and body? And is the Pfizer Covid Vaccination hard on the liver? Thank you, I appreciate greatly what you do.
Stool tests offer valuable insight into the gastrointestinal microbiota. Low levels of commensal bacteria are often observed after antimicrobial therapy, or in diets lacking fiber and/or prebiotic-rich foods and may indicate the need for microbiome support. On the other hand, a high total commensal abundance may indicate probiotic supplementation but it can also indicate a potential bacterial overgrowth so neither very low numbers or high numbers are necessarily good, and the aim should be to maintain a healthy balance between the different strains of bacteria. Also levels of microbes in the gut change all the time in response to diet, medications, environment, and even mood or stress which means that a stool sample taken one day, could look different to another sample taken from the same person on another day. Within the same category of bacteria is difficult to interpret if a high amount of bacteria is healthy due to different bacteria having positive or negative effects in the microbiome, but in general high firmicutes (mostly lactobacillus) and bifidobacteria is associated with a healthy microbiome. Most probiotics contain a mix of Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria which support a healthy microbial balance. When looking for a good probiotic make sure to look for multiple strains and high CFU (colony forming units).
Multi-strain probiotics tend to be more effective than single strain probiotics. Probiotic supplement labels should contain 10^7 to 10^11 CFU for optimal effects. CanXida Restore contains 10^ 8 CFU of six different Lactobacillus and Bifidobacteria strains that can help restore a balanced gut microbiome and optimize digestion and immune function. It includes the species Lactobacillus acidophilus and Lactobacillus casei, which both have documented anti-Candida effects. In addition a well-balanced diet high in prebiotic fiber and limited in simple sugars can boost beneifcial bacteria and restore gut balance.
You may benefit from including a prebiotic fiber supplement like inulin or psyllium which both show effects in gut health. Parasites can be hard to eradicate and you will most likely need a powerful antimicrobial formula like CanXIda Remove or additional herbs like berberine and wormwood, but it is unlikely that once a parasitci infection is cleared, mroe will appear. If you gut is suceptible and compromised from a complex dysbiosis it will be harder to get rid of potential pathogens like yeast and parasites. Additionally they release harmful toxins which can stress the liver, which is why you can support the liver with liver supporting supplements like milk thistle, molybdenum and glutathione.
Try to rotate your supplements and take small doses at firsg to avoid taxing your liver, so for example you can start with just the probiotic and natural fiber like psyllium to start supporting gut health and elimination of toxins though the colon and then move on to antimicrobial herbs and liver supplements to support detoxification through the liver. SARS-CoV-2 vaccination can be associated with liver injury but it is extremely rare and often as a result of previous liver complications.
