Probiotics For Optimum Nutrition

Healthy Eating &  Nutrition News: Mainstream Medicine Catches on to Nutritionists Tools Bottom Health  - "Getting to the bottom of digestive health involves more than just a pot of probiotic yoghurt" Says UK Nutritionist.

Leading London Nutritionist Yvonne Bishop-Weston says "It's great to see mainstream medicine catching on to something nutritionists have been banging on about for many years. A recent report on probiotics by the British Nutrition Foundation should alert mainstream health professionals in the NHS about a more common sense approach to digestive health."

"They even seem to have grasped the concept that probiotics are not a one size fits all silver bullet solution too. As nutritionists we use therapeutic strength probiotics in a very targetted way. We test the gut to see exactly whats going on in there , looking not just for infections and parasites but also measuring levels of good and bad bacteria."

"It doesn't stop there however. Even once the inmmediate problem has been addressed with therapeutic strength probiotics , for long term health you have to create an environment that will sustain a flourishing culture of good bacteria and discourage bad bacteria from repopulating the gut. "

"Many of the problems we deal with such as stress, lack of energy, IBS and other digestive disorders, skin problems, weight gain and even hormonal and fertility issues often lead back to an unhealthy digestive system and fundamental dysfunction that led to reduced effectiveness and nutritient absorbtion"
