HOW I CURED MY BABY?S MYSTERY ILLNESS THAT HAS BAFFLED DOCTORS WITH A SIMPLE YOGHURT DRINK
A mother tells the story about his son?s mysterious condition that causes his stomach to swell, which has been cured by a probiotic product.
Riley Anderson, an 11-month baby, has struggled with the bloating syndrome since his birth. Doctors first noticed the problem when he was just 12 hours old and was immediately taken to a special baby unit. He was fed by a tube and later transferred to a specialist children?s hospital, but no one could figure out what was wrong with him. This problem continued for months until his mother, Anna Anderson decided to change his milk to see if that would help ? but it didn?t. He was still bloated.
Mrs. Anderson decided to do some research herself and explored the antibiotic that Riley had been given. She discovered that one of them kills natural bacteria in the body. And as a last resort, she decided to give him a probiotic drink, particularly, Yakult, and the bloating was gone.
A few weeks later, Riley had problem with his ears and she brought him to a hospital where he was given more antibiotics. After just two doses, his stomach began to swell again. Once he was home, Mrs. Anderson began giving him Yakult and he returned to normal.
Probiotics are live beneficial bacteria which play a vital role in improving the overall balance of bacteria found in the human intestine. Certain factors like imbalanced diet, antibiotics, stress, and aging can upset the balance. Without the help of probiotics, the human digestive system will not function properly. By promoting the presence of good bacteria in the intestine, the activity of bad bacteria is controlled which, if active, can cause other bad bacterium and viruses to thrive in the intestines. This, in turn, disrupts the body?s natural immune system. A weak immune system without having to elaborate would cause undue damage to the body.
Probiotic bacteria is also classified as lactic acid bacteria, which lists among its type, the Lactobacillus Casei Shirota strain. However, not all bacteria can be classified as probiotic. These bacteria have to meet certain conditions to be classified as such: it should already exist in the intestine, it should be alive by the time it reaches the gut, and it should be proven that it has a beneficial effect on human health. Only when these conditions are met can the bacteria be classified as probiotic.
At present, the world is taking notice of the benefits of these probiotics. It has become more widely accepted, generating a great deal of medical and nutritional interest. And, with products like Yakult, people everywhere can now enjoy good health by maintaining a healthy, happy stomach.
