Almost the full length of human gastrointestinal tract is inhabited by various bacteria that are called normal flora and that peacefully co-exist with the macroorganism (human body). The mouth, the stomach, the most proximal and most distal parts of the small intestines and all the large intestine (colon) are populated with various kinds of germs to a different degree with the colon being most densely populated. Interestingly, about 1/3 of dried feces (stool) would be represented by dead bodies of bacteria living in the colon, of which Bacteroides species occupy the predominant part in normalcy. When the counts of normal flora diminish and along with that the species that normally do not live in the GI tract, such as bacteria and fungi, start multiplying in the lumen of the gut, then this condition is called dysbacteriosis. Because normal flora is implicated in a variety of functions that are useful for the body, such as maintaining high immunity, producing vitamins, digestion, etc., dysbacteriosis, depending on its kind and duration, may predispose or lead to development of various diseases. Among those conditions that may potentially be caused by dysbalance gastrointestinal flora are such "bad" diseases as inflammatory bowel disease (Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis), other autoimmune conditions, irritable bowel syndrome,frequent common colds,just to name a few. Natural remedies may help bring the normal flora of the GI tract back by killing the pathogenic bacteria and fungi and helping the normal species thrive. Most frequently, dysbacteriosis is caused by prolonged use of oral antibiotics. Foods containing large quantitis of prebiotics (ingredients that serve as culture media for normal intestinal species) or probiotics (live cultures of "good" bacteria), such as yogurts and sour kraut will also help restore the normal flora and boost your immune system naturally. Natural remedies of herbal origin will help when eliminating the undesired and harmful microorganisms from the GI tract lumen is necessary.



This naturopathic home remedy for intestinal dysbacteriosis will help eliminate pathogenic flora from the GI (gastrointestinal) tract and help increase the titers (numbers) of normal flora. Examples of pathogenic intestinal flora would be Staphylococcus aureus and certain streptococcal species. These two tinctures, each based on one herbal species, are for oral use (to be taken by mouth).
