A "journey" in the "chapter" of my life!


Okay . . . so today . . . let's read on . . . in my "book of life" . . .


I left off yesterday . . . telling you about the "conventional" antibiotics I had taken . . . that "THREW ME UNDER THE BUS" . . . by killing TOO MUCH OF MY "GOOD" BACTERIA OFF in my LARGE INTESTINE!!!


And with this . . .


I was back to having sinus and throat issues . . . BUT NOW . . . I was ALSO having some stomach issues . . .


SO, WHERE THE HECK DID THAT COME FROM???


Well . . . I've spoken about the "healthy" function of the "digestive tract" many times before . . .


But, let's quickly go over it one more time . . .


The "large" intestine (colon) . . . houses the "largest" amount of both "good" and "bad" bacteria in the body . . . with "good" being a LITTLE more than "bad".


Now . . . moving UP the digestive tract . . . the "small" intestine" is supposed to be basically "STERILE" . . . with "ONLY" a small amount of "GOOD" bacteria at the connective opening between the "large" and "small" intestine . . .


This "small" amount of "good" bacteria . . . is called . . . "THE GATEKEEPER" . . . and is supposed to keep the "bad" bacteria that's in the "large" intestine . . . IN THE LARGE INTESTINE . . .


BUT . . . when the "bad" overwhelms the "GOOD" bacteria in the "large" intestine . . . due to "conventional antibiotics" being presented to the body . . . the "bad" BREAKS through the "GATEKEEPER'S" WALL . . . and sets up housekeeping in the "SMALL" intestine . . .


And "IF" . . . the body's "immune system" CAN'T get rid of this "bad" bacterial invasion . . .


We now have "SIBO"!!!!


And yes . . . this was now the problem that I was presented with . . .


Remember before the holidays . . . we spoke about SIBO???


Well . . . let's talk about that a little bit more . . . because I "truly" believe this is the "issue" that many of us "harbor" . . . and don't know it!!!


Now . . . there are 2 types of "bad" bacteria that can invade the "small" intestine causing SIBO (small intestinal bacterial overgrowth) . . .


One being the "ARCHAEA" we spoke of before the holidays . . . that produces "Methane Gas" in the body . . .


And the other being . . . "Firmicutes and Bacteroides" . . . that produce "Hydrogen" . . .


Now . . . the body NEEDS "both" of these bacteria that produce Methane and Hydrogen gases . . . IN THE LARGE INTESTINE to function properly . . .


But . . . NOT . . . in the "small" intestine . . .


And unfortunately . . . I tested "positive" for "high levels" of both Methane AND Hydrogen in my small intestine.


Yup . . . you got it . . . even people that eat healthy can get SIBO . . .


So tomorrow . . . let's continue . . . and I'll tell you why
