Microbiome Facts: How Friendly Bacteria Benefits You

 

Microbiome is defined as bacteria that lives in and on our bodies.  To act as a defense against toxins and unfriendly bacteria we need to keep the friendly bacteria at optimum levels to remain in the best of health.  Microbiome is beneficial to our health and is made up from the food we eat and the people and surfaces we touch. Read on to discover how this friendly bacteria can benefit you…

Families sharing the same food, and surfaces will share similar microbiome.  Our microbiome makes up at least 90% of the cells that create us.  Only 10% of the cells in our body contain our DNA. A very surprising fact, don’t you think?

The microbes of friendly bacteria living in your gut are essential to survival.  They can also be detrimental to our health.  For example, if you eat bean soup with very hot chilli pepper (or habonero), you will have a runny stomach the next day.  A runny stomach is very dehydrating leaving you feeling weak due to frequent trips to the bathroom.

To remedy this, when you eat a tub of natural greek yoghurt, you ingest the friendly bacteria it contains.  They repopulate your gut, restoring it’s balance.  You then feel much better.

Microbiome Is Not Only In Your Gut

Microbiome also lives on your skin, with different strains of bacteria in stronger concentrations in it’s creases.  If you have a skin condition, the natural response is to take care of it by applying a cleanser or cream.  By doing this, you are contributing to the worsening of your condition.  Particularly if it is severe. If you are harsh with your skin or overload it with creams and cleansers, you simply upset the mictobiome balance of your skin and end up worse than before.

First find out your skin type, then use a suitable oil as a skin cleanser.  Even if you have dry skin.

Applying a few drops of either coconut oil, rosehip or argan oil on your skin wil feed it, yet keep it clear from toxins.

If you are going to cleanse your face, use pure mineral water, ionised acidic water or distilled. Followed by a few drops of oil suited to your skin type which could be:

Normal

Oily

Dry 

Sensitive

Dry and Sensitive

Combination Skin

From experience, after colon cleansing and liver flushing, I have seen my skin go from dry and sensitive to completely normal skin.  All because I changed my diet, cleansed my body and also reset my biome using Synergy Worldwide Products which I will tell you more about further on…

Synergy Products made a great difference to the effectiveness of the first liver flush I did after using their Purify Kit.  The most dramatic change being in the texture of my skin changing from parched to normal overnight.

This may seem like an exaggeration, but please bear in mind that colon cleansing and liver flushing were the last few steps of a 2 year rejuvenation programme to restore my health. I had never used Synergy Products before, but realised they contributed to the success of the liver flush I did afterwards.

I have been colon cleansing and liver flushing since 2006, so am no stranger to their effects on skin health.  However, when I met a distributor at a Christian business exhibition and read a Synergy Purify Kit leaflet, I saw the benefits of using the products straight away.  Maybe because of the knowledge I already had about cleansing the body.

Though I had never heard of microbiome before, I knew about friendly gut bacteria and also leaky gut.  With further explanation about the benefits of resetting my microbiome using Synergy Purify Kit, I bought the products straight away.

That was in September 2017.  However, I did not open the box til almost 3 weeks later!  I thought that using First Cleanse and Cleanse Smart (not related to Synergy) was enough for me.  I used these products in August and September 2017.  They are herbal colon cleansers which were recommended me by my local health food shop.

I did not want to overdo the body cleansing, so hesitated to use the Purify Kit.  Anyway, I finally did use the week long kit and followed the instructions to the letter.  Except for using the protein powder which was included.  I tend to have a disliking of manufactured protein.

How I Restored My Skin Health

So what did I do to achieve normal skin? As mentioned in other posts, as my skin had deteriorated to the point where it was leaving heaps of flakes on the floor and was becoming infected especially on my face, I ate raw food from February 29th 2016 for 4 months.  

6 Daily glasses of vegetable juice and avocado smoothies without fruit played a major part of my lifestyle.  I even consumed 6 raw organic eggs a day as I needed plenty of protein to rebuild my skin. I also ate sprout salads with guacamole and plenty of half-ripe raw plantain to feel full up.

At the end of 4 months, I was reduced to 9.5 stone and had a wrinkled face, but was in good health.  To regain the smoothness of my skin, I reintroduced lightly roasted chicken or steamed oily fish to my meals.  I continued with sprouted bean avocado salads.

For the next 4-5 months after this, I introduced heavier cooked foods like yams, sweet potatoes and half-ripe plantain to regain the weight I had lost.  I also made lentil vegetable soups and brown rice.  This worked and I became 11.5 stone by December 2017.  However, what I needed to also do was exercise!  It is now September 2019 and I am yet to set up a good exercise routine.  It is coming soon!

Flashback to September 2017 when I was introduced to Synergy Worldwise Purify.Kit.  It comprised Protein Powder, Biome DTX, Biome Active and also Arginine.  The instructions were easy to stick to and meant drinking arginine at least 3 times a day and also the Biome DTX 4 times daily.

Because I was using First Cleanse and Cleanse Smart in August-September 2017, I did not take the Synergy Purify Kit til October.  The following week – Octoer 11, I performed a liver flush which did not bring forth any stones – only chaff.

 

Can You Believe What Happened Next?

When I looked in the mirror on waking the next day, I could not believe what I saw and felt.  My face was like a baby’s both in appearance and touch.  The large pores on the side of my nose had shrunk.  The whites’ of my eyes were white.  The wrinkles on my face had totally disappeared along with puffy eyes and slight eye bags.

My stomach lost 2 inches of its waist.  This must have been water weight though. Joint pains around my knees went.  And I had a ton of energy lasting up to 3 months.

I think the biggest observation I made is that the effects of the Purify Kit on my skin lasted for almost 2 years. All of my friends could not believe the difference.  Before, they thought I was going to have to live with the effects of eczema forever.

Though I have done colon cleansing and liver flushing before, it was obvious that the Synergy Products made a huge difference to their effect. Why?  Because my microbiome had been reset!

According to Synergy; microbes in your body are essential for survival.  However, they can also be detrimental to health.  The gut is where the body converts food to energy and it is a major frontline component of the immune system. The gut is connected to the central nervous system, and the brain, and can also influence mood.  You cannot talk about the gut or its importance without talking about the organisms that live there.

Gut flora has been linked to virtually every process in our body. Imbalances have been implicated in countless health issues, some being the deepest chronic health issues of our time.  Ones like obesity, diabetes, asthma, cancer, autism, arthritis.

Even Your Brain…

Research has discovered that our whole mental and emotional well being is determined by our microbiome.  Inflammation starts in the gut. Heart disease, diabetes, liver issues, joint pain, hormonal imbalances are all different ways we can experience inflammation.  Unfortunately, living in the modern world is not very friendly to our gut!

However, as I have experienced, the microbiome can accessed and modified. Each of us has a unique microbiome.  The microbes in our body are determined by what we are exposed to and these colonies are constantly in a flux.

Geography, health status, stress, diet, age, gender and everything you touch all affect the composition of your microbiome.

75% of your Microbiome lives in your intestines which is why the top scientists at Synergy Worldwide have designed innovative products  to target the gut microbiome.

I hope you can see how very important resetting your microbiome is.  It is the key to regaining tip top health.  However, greater results are seen when combined with bowel cleansing and liver flushing.

You only need to do this one to two times a year to stay in tip top condition.  If you are trying to reverse the effects of disease in your body, a change in diet is crucial too.  You would also need to do plenty of vegetable juicing or drink juiced blends to repair your body faster.

Remember it is not the food that heals you.  Rather you are just giving your body the correct nutrients to repair itself.  On their own, they do no good.  However, just like you need oil for a car to move, you need the appropriate food nutrients in plentiful amounts to restore any damage that might have accumulated over time.

This works even if you are in your 60s or even 90s.  All the methods I mentioned are gentle and it is only the liver flushing that requires the bowel cleansing to be carried out prior to you doing a liver flush.  You are getting rid of parasites and if you do a liver flush, parasites give a die-off effect and can cause you to run a fever, which you do NOT want!
