You’ve probably got dysbiosis: An excerpt from Wheat Belly Total Health

Here’s an excerpt from chapter 9, Full Recovery From Post-Traumatic Grain Gut Syndrome, of Wheat Belly Total Health about the exceptionally common issue of dysbiosis: “Up to 35 percent of people with no other gastrointestinal disease and no symptoms have bacterial overgrowth (dysbiosis) or other distortions of bowel flora composition. Even though many doctors regard irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) as a benign condition, 30 to 85 percent of people with IBS have varying degrees of dysbiosis at the time of their diagnosis–it is not benign. Overgrowth of unhealthy bacteria is common in people who have low stomach acid due to acid-blocking drugs (such as Prilosec, Prevacid, Protonix, and Pepcid) or reduced stomach acid provoked by prior grain consumption; people who have taken antibiotics repeatedly or chronically; people with diabetes; people who take narcotics that slow bowel function; people with chronic constipation, which also slows bowel function; and people with fibromyalgia, Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, celiac disease and autoimmune diseases. Even rosacea and restless leg syndrome have been associated with dysbiosis. In short, if you have lived a modern life, you probably have some degree of dysbiosis. “It’s therefore time to repopulate the gastrointestinal tract with healthy species such as Lactobacillus and Bifidobacterium. Some of this is accomplished simply by an increase in their numbers, while some healthy species also prod...

AbstractPurpose of the ReviewEndometriosis is defined by a finding of ectopic endometrial glands/stroma, and is characterized by a wide variability in pain symptoms. The goal of this review is to identify peripheral to central factors that can modulate pain output in a given patient with endometriosis. Based on this constellation of factors, we propose a pain classification for endometriosis.Recent FindingsThe development and persistence of endometriosis-associated pain is influenced by a complex interplay between local factors that then interact with central variables. Starting peripherally, endometriosis anatomic charact...
