Falls Church Residents Should Be Taking Probiotics

Your gut is one of the most important systems in your body, but it can be disrupted by many things, especially drugs.  Not having a healthy gut can lead to a whole hosts of problems and we will discuss some of those thing in this blog.  When certain conditions present themselves to me in my chiropractic office in Falls Church, I will typically ask if they are taking a good Probiotics, of if they ever have.   A question I typically ask is if in the past year you have taken any antibiotics. Typically 9 out of 10 people have taken antibiotics in the past 2 years.   Did you know that taking an antibiotic can destroy all the good and bad bacteria in your gut?   The good bacteria dictate how well your immune system functions, how clear your skin looks and it can even affect your brain functions.

So what are some signs that you should be taking Probiotics?  Well first having taken Probiotics in the past 5 years and not re-culturing the good bacteria.  Other drugs that affect your gut bacteria is birth control and anti-inflammatory drugs.  Food poisoning also kills your good bacteria, in this case it tends to decrease the good bacteria and increase the bad bacteria.  A good healthy ratio to have is 80% good bacteria and 20% bad.  If you have had digestive disturbances there is a good chance your gut dysbiosis is off, or the ratio of good to bad bacteria is off.  There is also a good chance that skin conditions could also be caused by having gut dysbiosis.   It\'s said that 90% of the serotonin you produce is produced in the gut.   Serotonin is the hormone that makes you feel happy and good.  So having a poor gut health can lead to lower serotonin levels and lead to you being depressed.

If you are the type of person who gets sick a lot, there is a good chance your gut bacteria are out of whack and weakening your immune system.   These are just a few signs that you probably should be taking a good Probiotic.  The one we recommend at Rosa Family Chiropractic in Falls Church is Prosynbiotic by Standard Process.  We have over the year tried other ones, but this one tends to get the best results with my patient.
