UNLIKELY PROBIOTICS

Caution: Some readers might find this subject matter distasteful.

This post was inspired by the article “Micro Biome” published in Dr. Oz’s magazine, “The Good Life” (Jan/Feb/2017).

Probiotics are all the rage today with a variety of over the counter products available to create and maintain that healthy gut condition needed for our immune systems. Reading the cited article I was drawn to two of what I would have considered unlikely sources for probiotics.

The first concerns C-diff. I first learned of Clostridium Difficile five years ago when my mother, a robust 94 year old lady, living alone in a two story house, driving herself on whatever errands were necessary, was taken to an ER due to an upper respiratory infection. Her doctor insisted that she be admitted for observation and while in the hospital she contracted C-diff. In a matter of weeks she had passed away.

Here is an excerpt from Dr. Oz’s article concerning this deadly disease:

probiotic-1

Fecal material as a probiotic, not exactly an intuitive choice.  Another unlikely source is described in the next excerpts:

probiotic-4

probiotic-3

It would be great if the vaginal mucus, as with fecal material, might prove to be beneficial to adults and if it could also be administered in capsule form it would save some cheapskate guys a ton on wine, roses and mood music.

Ain’t Mama Nature wonderful?
