It may ultimately lead to millions around the globe finally overcoming their chronic conditions: top doctors within the medical establishment are finally going public in big ways over what’s really causing disease in our modern society.
What’s more, the media is picking it up like wildfire. The best part? We’ve been telling you about it for years.
The ‘secret’ has to do with your gut, and what’s going on inside it. More specifically, it has to do with what countless bacteria strains are doing in your gut. Like warriors, tiny bacteria wage war around the clock for intestinal dominance, deciding the fate of your immune system’s integrity.
There’s the ‘good’ bacteria, known as probiotics, and then there’s the ‘bad’ bacteria. The bad guys are what can lead to infections, and the ‘good’ guys are equally as disgusting under a microscope, but actually ‘battle’ the bad guys. The probiotic strains ultimately make up your first line of defense — your true ‘immune system’ when it comes to the frontlines of disease fighting.
How We Ruin Our Gut In Modern Society
As you can imagine, modern society has really displaced the ultra-delicate balance of good vs. bad bacteria within the gut. The biggest offender: antibiotics. While an amazing invention when it comes to killing off the bad bacteria, antibiotics don’t know how to differentiate between good and bad strains. They absolutely wipe everything out, and in a big way.
Just a few courses of antibiotics for a developing baby can alter the future integrity of the immune system like few other factors. Without properly resupplying probiotics to the body, a deep imbalance has been shown to lead to a host of conditions — including:
- Mental illness
- Decreased immune system
- Irritable bowel syndrome
- Digestive disorders
- And many other conditions now being documented by scientific research.
But let’s flash back for a moment to 2011. That’s when I first started writing on the developing research that was revealing to us how antibiotics and other gut-disruptors were wreaking havoc on your health and even making you mentally ill. That was 4 years ago, with 4 years worth of those suffering from chronic diseases listed above not being told to fix their imbalance.
Not to mention 4 years worth of medical establishment trolls labeling it as ‘alternative health’ quackery — a tone which should now change as even the mainstream medical system has began integrating it into its protocols.
Healing the Imbalance
Now, with this information finally unleashed on the public, we can begin to heal the guts of those who are stricken with serious conditions. Thankfully, it’s extremely easy to get started in doing so.
My top recommendations include:
- Taking a quality probiotic with a high amount of strain activity (at least 1 billion CFU count for those with an imbalance) daily
- Eating fermented foods like kimchi
- Drinking organic kombucha, which is probiotic-rich tea
- Eating slower, making it easier for your body to digest without being disrupted. Aim to chew your food 20 times before swallowing.
All of these tips can be started today, and can make a major difference when it comes to the serious health onslaught brought on by modern society’s double-edged sword of healthcare. There’s no question that the microbiome is one the keys to conquering disease and getting your health to optimum levels, and it’s powerful news when top doctors are now coming out and admitting it.

Good article Anthony. You are right.
Earth’s Pearl Probiotics really helped my mom’s digestive problems of IBS-Diarrhea and gas pains after taking for a few days, she’s had IBS-D years. Earth’s Pearl contains the right strains BIFIDOBACTERIA, B. infantis, etc. especially for IBS-D and scientifically studied to work.
Good article on a universally important subject. I would like to make a few additions to repairing the gut. After 6 decades of a wide variety of GI issues with the latest being GI/CR/Liver Cancer which I reversed by diet and alternative medicines, I would like to share the painful lessons I have finally learned about fixing the indigestion through a variety of means (more than probiotics and chewing food better). In addition to the probiotics listed above, don’t forget about making old-fashioned sauerkraut/fermented veggies like your Grandma used to make; super simple, super versatile in the kitchen, and cabbage family offers diverse and superior strains of probiotics which other foods listed do not necessarily offer and these are more specifically directed at the worst Gut Pathogens than most probiotics. Also, in addition to learning and practicing Slow Chewing, many/most of us lack either or both necessary digestive tools in our bodies and they are: HCL-hydrochloric acid and digestive enzymes. Any number of things can cause our digestive enzymes to lag behind demand — as we age, after being ill, or could be caused by most prescription and OTC drugs. Improper digestion and assimilation (a related issue) can creep up on us without being aware. Many people have what is called: “inborn errors in metabolism” which means we lack any of a diverse array of enzymes needed to properly process all foods. Undigested or improperly digested foods become a known carcinogen in the body, and after years of passing these self-poisons, our system begins to break down. That is why probiotics and careful eating is usually not enough if we have had any degree of significant problems. Retail purchasing extra (full-spectrum) enzymes can help us get up and running again. Also, elder people’s bodies produce less and less HCL, and the symptoms of insufficient HCL (required for digesting heavy proteins) are typically misread and mistakenly believed to be the symptom of too much acid and the person takes (or asks for and is prescribed) an Anti-Acid. This is one of the most dangerous maintenance drugs anyone can take. Solve the original problem: get the allergic foods out of your system, get a re-boot with high-quality full spectrum enzymes, eat all the probiotic foods you can get your hands on, and stay away from all drugs. Last but not least, I highly recommend going on a Garlic Fast. That is, find a number of ways you can consume very high does raw garlic for at least a week. You will find no better way to kill pathogens and re-calibrate the body’s enzymatic capacity than with a Medicinal Garlic Treatment Program. I fine-grate (machine) a few pounds of organic carrots and celery daily and mix in with enough garlic to almost make my stomach upset; I do this for as many days as I can, while restricting everything I eat to a Garlic Meal with some other food I like to carry the garlic. I typically can go through 5# in a month (this is a LOT of peeling and grinding!). Do this several times a year. Getting rid of longstanding GUT issues is not a Silver Bullet project (take/ do something once and the problem will go away). Any of these natural healing protocols, while infinitely SAFER, CHEAPER, and much more HEALTH-ENGENDERING, do take much longer. Maybe that is the difference between systemic repair and a band-aid. And don’t forget Garlic (or Golden Seal Root, or Turmeric, or Ginger, or Cilantro, etc.) is ONLY ONE choice you could make. There are MANY PATHS to retoring your normal gut functioning and no one should step in and tell you how/what to do. We must each engage our animal instincts and scientific attitude. Trial and Error, Intuitive Self-Healing hunches take time. Fixing our broken bodies will be the most creative thought process you ever committed to.
Nice article but who are the top doctors in the title?
Click on the blue ‘are finally’ in the first paragraph for a link to the BBC article.
I am a certified functional medicine doctor and I will agree with the importance of proper gastrointestinal health. People with imbalances should be considering more than just probiotics. My common minimum recommendations are as follows:
40 to 80 billion CFU probiotic with imbalances, 5 to 20 billion CFU maintenance
High quality, broad spectrum digestive enzymes with each meal
Avoidance of immune stimulating foods, commonly wheat, corn, soy, milk, tomato, beef, chocolate
Avoidance of excess sugar and alcohol
30 grams fiber minimum daily, 64 oz water minimum daily
L-glutamine, aloe vera, and DGL to support intestinal mucosa

Thanks for info, although such a wide range of answers in regards to foods these days and even doctors and scientist that are in the field do not always agree which makes it so hard for us ordinary people to know what to do here?
Like sugars for example, the quest for the cures clearly point out that sugars is bad for us but then one doctor claim sugars in fruit etc have got that left spinning electron while the bad processed sugars have a right spinning one if I remember correctly I´m certainly no scientist here? So they cannot even agree fully on the sugars, me I eat fruits and natural sugar in foods and love tomatoes and chocolate (not with the added sugar) but the rest on your list I could do without no problem. Just need some clean wild caught fish every now and then and I don´t need the other types of meat not really, chicken would be nice at times but not when grown and killed using the disgusting methods on the industry today.
What’s your opinion of this??
Since 2012 (I believe) Glyphosate has been an antibiotic.
Um, glyphosate is and has never been an antibiotic. It is the active ingredient in RoundUp, a weedkiller. It is a very dangerous chemical, true, and is not only a Class 2A carcinogen, it has been proven to be a major culprit in the disease which is killing off the bees we need to survive. However, it is NOT an antibiotic. O.o
These psychos like to squeeze every dollar out of anything. I guess I was off 10 years. Of coarse this is why there’s so many digestive disorders. I do doubt it’s widely used in medicine today though.
Glyphosate was patented in the US, first as an antibiotic in 2002
then as an antiprotozoal agent in 2003
