Combating Chronic Infections

Many infections we are fighting today tend to be more challenging because of antibiotic resistance of biofilms. What are biofilms?

Biofilm consists of microorganisms encased within a self-produced matrix of exopolysaccharides and exoproteins that strongly adheres to interfaces and resists dislodgement. Microorganisms residing within biofilms are highly resistant to antimicrobials including antibiotics and bacteriocins produced by probiotics.

Biofilms have been found to be involved in a wide variety of microbial infections in the body, by one estimate 80% of all infections. Infectious processes in which biofilms have been implicated include common problems such as bacterial vaginosis, urinary tract infections, catheter infections, middle-ear infections, formation of dental plaque, gingivitis, coating contact lenses  and less common but more lethal processes such as endocarditis, infections in cystic fibrosis, and infections of permanent indwelling devices such as joint prostheses, heart valves, and intervertebral disc. More recently it has been noted that bacterial biofilms may impair cutaneous wound healing and reduce topical antibacterial efficiency in healing or treating infected skin wounds. Early detection of biofilms in wounds is crucial to successful chronic wound management. Although many techniques have developed to identify planktonic bacteria in viable wounds, few have been able to quickly and accurately identify bacterial biofilms.

Good news! We have a new product that I worked with Dr. Thiel of Food Research on. I’ve taken two of my previous favorite biofilm products and combined it into one. If you have been battling a persistent infection that you just can not get on top of, I’d highly recommend considering this new Biofilm Detox product. Unfortunately, not all infections we deal with can be seen on blood and urine analysis. Sometimes when they go into the chronic state, typical markers are not shown but symptoms will still present. Staph, strep, yeast, mold, and Lyme to just mention a few.

    Dr J. My son has what they think might be Atypical Mycobacterium from cleaning an aquarium with a sore on his finger. He got lumps on his arm so they sent a biopsy out it came back negative and 1300.00 dollars cost. They gave him 4 different antibiotics for 4 months. I had him take strong probiotics with it. The lumps seemed to go but now one has returned. They are hard and look like a boil but don’t come to a head. This is only on the right arm and the one that had a sore on his finger. Do you think this pill could help?

    1. I had a similar case a few years ago with good results. Yes, we can definitely help.

    I think your clinic needs to hire a good RN! (hint hint)
