Gut Microbiome Dysbiosis and Personalised Probiotics™ to Counteract Dysbiosis
What is Dysbiosis?
Dysbiosis is characterised as undesirable changes in your body's microbial ecosystems linked to health issues and illnesses. Dysbiosis is classified into two types: bacterial and fungal. However, it is crucial to remember that dysbiosis is not a medical condition. Your body contains a variety of harmful microbes. The bulk of these microbes are beneficial to your health and help with the physiological activities of your body. However, dysbiosis can occur if one of these bacterial colonies becomes out of balance. The most prevalent cause of dysbiosis is a bacterial imbalance in your GI tract, which includes your intestines and stomach.
The symptoms of dysbiosis are determined by the location of the bacterial imbalance. Some common symptoms are:
- • Depression
• Difficulty focusing or thinking
• Redness or rash
• Chest discomfort
• Vaginal itching
• Difficulty urinating
• Upset stomach
• Bad breath
Often, your body has the ability to repair imbalances where severe or worsening symptoms require a diagnosis.
Dysbiosis in the human body and its risks
Dysbiosis can develop from imbalances of microbiota in the body, resulting in increased risks and exposure to infectious diseases. Factors linked with dysbiosis are exposure to diet, toxic pathogens, medications such as antibiotics, anxiety and stress, inadequate dental care etc. Correspondingly, high alcoholic intake and ignorance towards chemical-rich food consumption can further deteriorate the immune system and provoke dysbiosis. Dysbiosis not only occurs in your internal body but can also be found on your skin. This is mostly due to exposure of the skin to a single type of overgrowing bacteria or harmful bacteria.
Personalised Probiotics™ to counteract dysbiosis.
Live bacteria and yeasts are called probiotics, which benefit your health, particularly your digestive system. Probiotics act as a safety cell for your gut health and fight off harmful bacteria to protect good bacteria in your body, for they help restore lost good bacteria in the body. Personalised Probiotics™ can provide the best health benefits to you as they are tailored to complement and tend to your specific needs and requirements. Probiotics do not adhere to the “all for one” principle due to the fact that everybody has a different microbiome and consequently has different demands. Using gut microbiome, individual’s health status, and medical and lifestyle data, an evidence-based Personalised Probiotics™ recommendation could be tailored to an individual’s need to counteract microbiome dysbiosis.
