    Very helpful information! Fresh fruits are quite delicious and are beneficial to health indeed. What fresh fruits do you think give utmost benefit to digestive health?

      Hi Lorii,

      As I have mentioned previously I suggest eating 2 servings of veggies to every 1 serving of fruit. Fruit is very good for you but is higher in sugar than veggies. Too much sugar can easily set an environment in your intestines for the bad bugs to populate. As far as choices of fresh fruit, a variety is good. I especially like berries because they are so high in antioxidants which give lots of protection against disease.

      Enjoy your fruit (and veggies) and stay healthy, Pat

      Hi Lorii,

      Fresh fruit can be a double edged sword if they happened to be contaminated with bad bacteria which is more common than we often realize. That is a good reason to make sure the bad bugs are not in your intestines. If only good bugs are present, they can wipe out the bad so they do not cause a problem. I do not believe there is any one fruit that is better than another for your intestinal health. One thing to keep in mind is to eat more vegetables than fruit because fruit is higher in sugar. Too much sugar can actually provide an environment for the bad bugs to populate. I suggest 2 veggies to every 1 serving of fruit. I hope that answers your question.

      Stay healthy, Pat

      Hi Norma,

      Yes, at this point in my career in working with nutrtitional supplementation, I mainly do my research to make sure I am not missing new research, etc. Most of this info is in my head, I just have to get it out and on paper. It is good to hear that you are learning from my articles.

      Thanks for visiting and commenting, Pat

      Hi Robin,

      I’m glad you clarified why acidophilus is stinky. Our NeoLife Acidophilus Plus is really not stinky at all… maybe the end result if you really need it? haha

      Stay bad bug free, Pat

    Pat, after living all my childhood and young adulthood in Brazil, including working the Amazon for a few years, I came to the States.  Before moving to Mexico, I decided to have myself tested to be sure I was healthy.  It took weeks for me to get test results back … because the lab had never SEEN so many "benign" beasties … and some they had never seen at all.  It was a testament to how resilient and adapting our bodies can be.  Because of my ongoing travels, I have since developed a full program to keep "flora and fauna," as I call it, in a healthy balance.  Thanks for sharing this important information with all your readers, and offering serious, top-quality products as solutions!

      Hi Sharon,

      Thanks for your amazing testimony about your experiences with intestinal bugs. Yes, our bodies can adapt to different environments especially when given the proper tools to stay healthy. I cannot stress ‘proper tools’ enough.

      Thanks again for sharing, Pat

    I take probiotics daily and two/day if I have to go on antibiotics. I was rushed to hospital late last year with a bug that caused bleeding of the bowel. I don't want to repeat that experience so please people, replace those good bugs.

      Wow, that must have been scary to have that kind of bleeding. You are being very wise to stay on a good probiotic daily after that scare. Thanks for helping me spread the word.

      Stay healthy, Pat

    I always learn so much detailed health information at your site, Pat, and it fascinates me! I love learning new things – practical ways to keep our bodies strong and healthy. As nurturers, we women want the best for our families.

    Following a cat bite recently, which went into the bone, my doctor gave me anti-biotics. I don't even remember if I've ever had anti-biotics before, as I rarely get sick. But the first thing I thought about was that as soon as the 10-day prescription is completed, I need to cleanse my colon!

    Excellent article, Pat! – Thanks so much 🙂

      Hi Susan,

      Oh, that cat bite must have been nasty to have actually gone into the bone. Antibiotics are necessary at times and it is unwise to avoid them when they are needed. Yet we do have to take precautions to correct the replenishment of the good bugs after taking them.

      So happy to have your support of my articles, Pat

    Excellent information on "gut" health and healthy bugs, Pat. More than 16 years ago I learned of the value of quarterly cleansing…ridding my body of the bad bugs, bacteria and sludge. Today, my intestinal health adds to my vibrant energy and clear focus. Everyone should use supplements and cleansing to improve their overall health, too.

      Hi Christy,

      You are wise to eat yogurt as it does help some in replenishing the good bacteria. However not a great lot of the good bacteria in yogurt actually survives the stomach acid and really reaches the intestines. That is the reason I supplement with the NeoLife Acidophilus Plus. It is enteric coated to protect it against the stomach acid but breaks down when it reaches the intestines.. 99% delivery. Just keep it in mind in the event you ever have to be on antibiotics or suffer from a stomach bug or have any of the other symptoms mentioned in the article.

      Best of health to you, Pat

      Hi Roz,

      Yes, it sounds as though you are doing many things right. I eat yogurt most days but unfortunately not a lot of the good bacteria in yogurt actually reaches the intestines where it is needed because it doesn’t survive the stomach acid. That is the reason an acidophilus supplement must be formulated so as to survive the stomach acid but yet breakdown in the intestines where it is needed.


      Keep up the good work, Pat

      Hi Tom,

      Yes, intestinal flora balance is very critical in how our body functions in many ways. People, and sometimes even doctors, tend to blame many health problems on other things or just throw a medicine at it instead of addressing the real problem.

      Take care of your health, Pat

      Hi Rob,

      That is too bad about your experience in Mexico. What did you do about it? Even if it has been quite some time you would benefit from going through the NeoLife Garlic Allium and Acidophilus Plus for 30 days. Then next time you go to another country take the NeoLife Betazymes with you to help kill the bacteria before it takes hold. You will enjoy your travels much more.

      Blessings, Pat

    Hi Pat, I definitely didn't know about the garlic, that's really interesting.  Your blog comes at a good time for me.  My daugther and I just returned from a mission trip to Haiti, and we all have a bit of an intestinal 'thing' going on.  It is going away though…    Not an unusual occurance given where we have been.  

     

    Cheers, and thanks for all you do….

      Hi Leslie,

      Happy for the timing of my blog for you and your daugther. Please be aware that those types of intestinal bugs from travel may get better temporarily but often will reappear when you are least expecting. I always suggest going through the garlic and acidophilus plus routine after such situations or after any bout of taking antibiotics. Give the NeoLife supplements a try.. they are the best available.

      Blessings, Pat

    Thanks Pat!  This is great info…our digestion is something that we just seem to take for granted until something hurts!  I think I am going to check out a clensing myself…nothing hurts right now, but I do have food allergies and who doesn't need an immune system boost!

      Hi Liz,

      Yes, it is so easy to take things for granted until something isn’t functioning correctly. By all means a cleanse could give you a start on addressing those food alergies. People do not realize what causes the food allergies and that there are natural means of correcting the problems with certain foods. I’ll be happy to walk you through how to address those food allergies.

      Be in touch for the sake of your health, Pat
