There are several forms of bacteria that can potentially live within the human body. With a few exceptions the majority of the pathogens that are potentially harmful are what we refer to an anaerobic or those that thrive in oxygen poor environments. Our sedentary lifestyles have contributed greatly to a society of oxygen deprived people. There is a big difference between enough oxygen for life and optimal oxygen levels.
As the available oxygen levels fall, it becomes harder for the body to regulate functions and to naturally control many anaerobic pathogens. Once human yeast has migrated throughout the body if there is insufficient oxygen to kill it off, it will continue to multiply explosively out of control. Once this occurs we need to bombard the body with higher doses of oral oxygen several times per day over several weeks to support the elimination of excess yeast or candida. In so doing we can sometimes cause a depletion of some balance in the beneficial bacteria as well. This is especially true if the digestive system is a major area of discomfort and symptoms. When this is the case, it is often advisable to take a good probiotic to help ensure that the balance of beneficial bacteria remains in the proper ratio. If you take our candida evaluation on this site and score over 200 you may wish to use a good probiotic during our Flush to support the beneficial bacteria in the gut.
Since most of the good bacteria is aerobic or oxygen loving very little is destroyed through oxygenation, but the balance between the many different strains of good bacteria can become out of line and taking probiotics is often the easiest way to correct this while naturally supporting the lower digestive health at the same time.
