Probiotics Replenish, Restore Healthy Bacteria In Guts Of Chemo Patients

August 20, 2013 by  

One of the leading causes of death among cancer patients is chemotherapy which, along with antibiotics, destroys the body’s immune system and the good bacteria that thrive in the gastrointestinal tract.

A healthy gastrointestinal tract is essential to a strong immune system. Studies on rats that have had their gastrointestinal systems stripped of all bacteria showed they produced less immunoglobulin and had altered immune structures, smaller spleens and reduced levels of important B and T cells.

Physicians know this. So why don’t they tell their cancer patients about the benefits of a healthy gastrointestinal system and teach them how to eat to maintain proper levels of healthy bacteria? Cancer treatments themselves are a boon to the pharmaceutical industry. Another boon is a drug called RSPO1 or R-spondon 1, which activates cell production in the intestinal walls, prompting regeneration of the damaged tissues and an increase in the levels of healthy bacteria.

Pharmaceuticals can charge almost $50,000 for one dose of RSPO1. But they can’t patent probiotics, which do the same thing. So physicians — who receive kickbacks on their prescriptions and other largess from the pharmaceutical companies for endorsing their drugs — don’t tell patients about probiotics and proper gut-healthy nutrition.

Probiotics are a natural and healthy way for chemo patients — and those on a steady dose of antibiotics — to rebuild their immune systems. Drinking buttermilk will also help replenish the gut’s healthy bacteria.
