Our microbiome is the genetic material of all the microbes: bacteria, fungi, protozoa, and viruses that live on and inside the human body. The number of genes in all the microbes in one person's microbiome is 200 times the number of genes in the human genome. The microbiome may weigh as much as five pounds (1). The microbiome has recently emerged as a crucial factor in human physiology and disease. In addition, the genetic factors, dietary habits, and various environmental factors of the host lead to the diversity and the specificity of the human intestinal flora, while human intestinal flora in turn would play important roles in exerting host's physiological functions, such as metabolism, energy intake, and immune regulation (2). Studies have found that many of the chemical constituents of TICM can be transformed and metabolised by the intestinal flora, making it easier for the body to absorb. In other words, the gut is like a processing factory for microbes. For this reason, there is no need to worry about any viruses as they are actually good for us hence why I was determined to get “c****”. A majority of gastrointestinal problems are treated with the use of antibiotics in western medicine. In TICM, antibiotics are not prescribed because of their negative effect on the gut. In these cases, the gut has already been weakened to the point of sickness, so why would you further want to impair it? Your TICM doctor will have gut restore formula’s made to reduce inflammation in gastrointestinal disorders; help diarrhea, ulcerative colitis, diabetes, fatty Liver, Crohn's disease, GERD, Stomach flu, rectal prolapse, influenza, c****. bacillary dysentery. Some of the key ingredients: Huang Qin is widely used to alleviate gastrointestinal disorders such as inflammatory bowel disease. Da Huang protects from inflammation and gut barrier damage while restoring gut microbiota.
