Colon Health

Autism Microbial Connection

The first hint of a microbial connection was the stomach problems that almost always accompany autism. When researchers compared the stool of children with autism and gastrointestinal problems to those with GI problems only, they found that children with autism had much more clostridial bacteria — the group of species C. diff is part of — compared to the other participants.

The Tantalizing Links between Gut Microbes and the Brain

In humans, the data are more limited. Researchers have drawn links between gastrointestinal pathology and psychiatric neurological conditions such as anxiety, depression, autism, schizophrenia and neurodegenerative disorders

Digestive and Colon Health in Children

Remember it only takes one course of antibiotics to cause problems in the intestines. These problems can be aided with a good success rate if acted upon quickly. Probably the most pressing issue is finding ways of serving up some of the remedies and foods that will assist with digestive and colon problems in children.

Having A Healthy Intestional Tract

A healthy intestinal tract is a key to preventing attacks by various pathogens. Parasites can be fought with high doseages of such probiotic substances as Lactobacillus acidophilus, L. bulgaricus, and bifidobacteria. Treatments need to last for several months, however. The health and number of organisms making up the normal flora of the bowel needs to be strong in order to compete against potential pathogens. Intestinal parasites and yeasts can ravage the intestinal flora, preventing the vital manufacture and absorption of nutrients, causing the whole body to breakdown in some fashion.

During the last decade, probiotics as means for the control of parasite infections were reported covering mainly intestinal diseases but also some nongut infections, that are all of human and veterinary importance

What Are the Treatments for Inestinal Parasites in Humans?

Intestinal parasites such as parasitic worms infect more than one-fourth of the world's population, according to the World Health Organization. These infections result in disease, disability and death. Although there are more than 20 different species of parasitic worms that infect humans, almost all of them can be treated with one of five common prescription drugs. Medications are also available for infections of parasites other than worms.
