The mere mention of the word bacteria to the average person is more than likely to guarantee a fairly negative and adverse reaction: the reason for this is that bacteria have become the byword synonymous with a variety of unpleasant and potentially lethal health complaints. In reality, just as there are good and bad people, so too are there different types of bacteria that can pose a risk or benefit to a person’s wellbeing.
Friendly bacteria, or use to the more formal term probiotics, have been identified by researchers from across the globe as a very potent ally in the treatment of a number of different pathologies, predominately related to gastrointestinal functionality.
Medical professionals have been especially impressed with the potential relationship that exists between the consumption and ingestion of the probiotics in the diet and the health condition known as “AAD” (Antibiotic associated Diarrhoea).
AAD occurs within a person whenever there is an imbalance in the levels of gastrointestinal bacteria in their body, thereby meaning that more harmful strains of bacteria such as Clostridium Difficile are allowed to grow, thrive and flourish. More in-depth studies that have been conducted to more precisely identify the strains of probiotics that may help to break the cycle of AAD and the efficacy of antibiotic therapy as a whole have identified that the Lactobacillus DDS-1 strain not only reduced the severity of bowel evacuation episodes but furthermore; actually bolstered the autoimmune system as a whole.
One of the primary concerns with the over-reliance upon antibiotic agents of any description is the fact that they will gradually lose their usefulness and effectiveness in the treatment of diseases and foreign cells within the body. By ensuring that the autoimmune system is strengthened, this in turn means that the need to rely upon such antibiotic treatment is significantly reduced, even eliminated.
The implications of such a breakthrough are nothing short of incredible and indeed, there have been many medical professionals who have identified that one of the most remarkable and significant benefits that probiotics have to offer the average person is a chance to make use of medicinal cycling.
With medicinal cycling, the patient will alternate between ingesting antibiotic agents with the usage of probiotic drinks, probiotics foods, and even probiotic supplements to help replenish the immune system as a whole. This way, the efficacy of the antibiotic agents is not compromised; nor is the quality of care provided to the patient.
As you get older and experience different health concerns it may become necessary that you use portable oxygen in your daily life. You should be aware that this is one of the most important purchases that you can make. It can affect your daily life greatly if you don’t get the oxygen machine that is correct for what you need. Everyone needs to breathe correctly in order to have a happy and productive life. These machines will help you accomplish that when you cannot do it on your own anymore for whatever medical reason. Portable oxygen will help you live an active life much longer if you have a medical need for prescription oxygen.
Choosing the right oxygen is an important decision. You must first decide which style of oxygen machine is right for you. There are basically two types of oxygen machines. These two types are Pulse and Continuous Flow. Pulse delivers the oxygen to the patient in little puffs that are spaced out from each other. Also easy to decipher by the name, Continuous Flow oxygen machines deliver a constant stream of concentrated oxygen to the patient throughout the day.
If you have a more serious need for concentrated oxygen you will probably want to use the continuous flow model than the pulse model. The pulse models are better for those who only need to use their oxygen machines for certain times like when they exercise or if they have breathing issues when they are asleep. The pulse models are also much lighter and easier to carry around because they hold less oxygen and are lighter. The pulse models are also much more beneficial for those who use oxygen who like to travel a lot. These are all factors to consider when purchasing your oxygen machines. Read the rest of this entry »
