The paradigm of modern culture is summed up as "sterilize" is equal to healthy. This paradigm comes from the discovery of germs and their coincidental relationship to diseases. It can be likened to a field that is plowed and left barren. This field is then populated with all kinds of weeds and plants some may be good and many are bad or useless. But the normal or healthy field is never barren. It is a culture of balanced plants in a proper relationship. Modern allopathic medicine seeks to sterilize your mouth with highly toxic to bacteria AND YOU, ... Chemicals, and seeks to maintain that state. But in nature (dare I say God's plan?) a human being has 5-10 times more bacterial cells in the body than actual body cells, amounting to approximately 3 pounds of them, and without them you WILL die! They are much smaller than body cells so the disparity in weight.. plus you are mostly water weight.
Current research in probiotics is only now understanding the critical importance to your guts immune system response ( 80% of the immune system is in the gut). And this is due in a large part to the probiotics in your entire intestinal tract from front to back.
I had chronic ear infections starting when I was just a child and had a radical mastoidectomy by age 14 . The removal of my entire left inner ear mechanism left me in danger of becoming deaf if the right ear also went that way. I fought the sinusitus and the ear, nose and throat infections for 45 years with EVERY possible medical and natural treatment I could find and NOTHING cured it. At best I got relief for a few days. I plowed the field diligently and stopped anything that I thought might of contributed to it like dairy. In the end I found my ear infection was worsening, my nose was so swollen, (nasal passages deviated septum they called it) and my eustacean tubes closed so tight (with inflamation) that I knew that like the creator of the muppets; I was doomed to die. Antibiotics, sinus flushes and rinses and anything else I tried (and I tried them ALL) were of NO effect. I was in dispair! I was suffering from sleep apnea and snoring and my mouth breathing had cause sever gingivitis on the front gums due to the unaturaly dry mouth. It was so bad my cats would jump purposefully ON ME to get me to breath or stop snoring, I am not sure which, but [probably both. Lol but thats the only reason they did it, I am sure. I was getting poor rest from all that. Things were bleak to say the least.
Last year I read about a bacteria cultured from human breast milk and intestinal flora that is the pre eminant colonizer of the baby from birth. It's a home maker for healthy probiotics and has a natural antibiotic that selectively kills bad bacteria and is harmless to the good bacteria, called "reuterin". This bacteria named "L. Reuteri" My years of research had show that the "plowed field" of my sinuses and the rest of my body were in danger of being overwhelmed by the weeds. It occurred to me that I needed to plant my field with what God intended to have there.
I took some of the powder of L Reuteri and placed it in my ears (both were helped) against the right ear drum and was excited to discover that within three days the ear infection had stopped and the pain was lessened and drainage had all but ceased. I snorted some of the powder up my nose (straight live bacteria) and within a week my nose was opened and I breathed easier for the first time in 45 years. My eustacean tubes opened up the next week after I continues to apply the bacteria to my ears nose and throat, and they started to function normaly, again after 45 years of them NEVER working right! I applied the Reuteri to my gums repeatedly after a gum cleaning and within a week my gingivitis had all but disappeared!
I have now been nearly perfectly symptom free for nearly a year! And after a few booster doses my nose is wide open and my eustacean tubes work perfectly my eardrum has not shown any sign of infection. To breathe freely through my nose again, to sing, to smell, what a joy! I am not snoring, I am sleeping better, and wake more rested, and so are my cats. Lol If you wish to discuss this with me or see the list of things I tried and the surgery and stuff in the past 45 years I had done or tried write me at lifesharer(at)yahoo. com .
