Bacteria...Good vs. Bad

Bacteria in your colon are referred to by many different names – probiotics, good or bad bacteria, beneficial bacteria, acidophilus, disbiosis, micro flora, proflora, friendly flora, and unfriendly bacteria.  I simply use good and bad bacteria to refer to all the bacteria that exist in the small intestine and your colon.  Your colon has both good and bad bacteria.  The good bacteria maintain the health of your colon by keeping the bad bacteria from multiplying and it also helps to reduce constipation.  Most people have bad bacteria as the dominant condition in their colon.  You can see this by the illnesses that exist throughout the world. Most people later in their life suffer from diseases that resulted from colon neglect and abuse.

Bad bacteria multiply when you…

·         Consume toxins such as pesticides, food additives, preservatives, etc.
bacteria, alternative health·         Drink alcohol
·         Eat processed foods
·         Have excess anxiety
·         Lack fiber in your diet
·         Use birth control pills
·         Use drugstore laxative
·         Use drugs and medications

Good bacteria in your colon consist of hundreds of species of bacteria.  The good bacteria are most active in a pH of 5.9 to 6.9- an acidic environment.  This makes for a healthy colon.  Your colon serves as a home for the good bacteria, which ferment specific carbohydrates, which in turn keep your colon environment slightly acidic.  The acid environment favors the good bacteria and keeps the bad bacteria and pathogens from multiplying.  The bad bacteria create an alkaline environment and are most active in a pH of 7.1 to 7.9.  However, when good beneficial bacteria are dominant in your colon, it prevents the spread of disease from various organisms – parasites, bacteria, viruses, fungi.  Organisms like shigella, salmonella, protozoan, amoebas, staph, herpes, flu, cold viruses, and CMV are the ones that create killer diseases such as dysentery, blood poisoning, meningitis, pneumonia, influenza, and encephalitis.  The good bacteria keep these organisms in the minority, thus preventing them from increasing and getting into the blood, and into different body organs.  They do this by their antibiotic like secretions, lactic acid production, and other secretions, which keep their environment acidic.

In his book, Acidophilus and Colon Health, 1999, David Webster states,  “Indicators of a healthy colon flora are a soft but well-formed stool, with amber color and little or no odor, and that floats in water most of the time. When the stools are dry, dark brown, too solidly formed or too loose, and especially if there is a putrid odor, these
are clear indicators of a putrefactive, alkaline-producing colon flora.  Chronic constipation, diarrhea, and irritable bowel syndrome are often eliminated when your colon is restored and maintained at a slightly acid pH.”

In his research, Webster found that feeding the remaining good bacteria with edible lactose whey rejuvenates the good bacteria in your colon.  By drinking 2 – 5 tablespoons or more each day in a cup of distilled water, enough lactose can reach your colon to feed the good bacteria. Webster recommends doing this for 30 days. After this period you can check your stools to see if you have reactivated your good bacteria.

Great microorganisms in your colon comprise of several types of microscopic organisms. The harsh corrosive environment supports the great microscopic organisms and keeps the terrible microbes and pathogens from reproducing.
