Probiotics & Prebiotics!
These are a MUST when taking antibiotics: take daily 2 hours away from an antibiotic (best Ortho Biotic 1-2/day, kids ½ per day)
Probiotics are a must for immune/gut/overall health.
Our society offers too many highly processed chemical laden "foods". Probiotics are “good bacteria” including live yeasts that keep our gut and immune system healthy, protect us & decrease inflammation (70% of our immune system is around our gut), make important substances like serotonin, improve our sex hormone balance, treat certain problems like irritable bowel, decrease the risk of autoimmune diseases (thyroid, lupus, Celiac), reduce the risk of colon cancer, and help us digest and absorb nutrients. (You can get small amounts naturally in foods such as yogurt, sauerkraut, kimchi and miso). Prebiotics are plant fibers that beneficially nourish & act as fertilizer for the good bacteria in our colon (a great easy way to get them is taking 2 Fiber Plus capsules with your probiotic, and you can also get from eating raw bananas, onions, garlic, leeks, asparagus, dandelion greens, chicory root, Jerusalem artichoke, and raw grains).
EXCELL EXCELLENT PROBIOTICS & PREBIOTICS: eat healthy GF with lots of raw veggies/fruits and…
- Best GI/body health: daily Ortho Biotic, Prescript Assist, & UltraFlora Balance or Control along with 2 Fiber Plus (can take all 3 probiotics with Fiber Plus daily, or rotate the probiotics), and you can add ProBiommune or Sach Boullardii if you have indications for them.
- Prevention of Strep Throat, & help with ear-throat-sinus-dental-gum-mouth-bad breath problems: ProBiommune daily to weekly as below.
- They must have barest minimum: 2-3 Ortho Biotic or Prescript Assist or UltraFlora once weekly with 2 Fiber Plus. (Rotate the probiotics quarterly.)
See our excellent probiotics below, as they are ones of only a handful of probiotic strains clinically shown to support & improve human health. Probiotics must be handled carefully and not exposed to heat during shipping or storage. The dosages of probiotics must be based upon scientific & clinical data. Take only products that guarantee dosage at the expiration date to assure reliable dosages. We chose these products to offer because they contain enough live units to make an impact on gut flora.
Ortho Biotic (22 billion/capsule, #60/bottle): Best powerful high strength broad spectrum probiotic to promote healthy gut flora, protect immune system & intestinal integrity. No need to refrigerate and guaranteed at expiration to have 22 billion/capsule. Can open and swish & swallow in mouth or add to food/liquid for children. Lacto acidoph, lacto paracasei, Bifido lactis, bifido bifidum, lacto plantarum, lacto rhamnosus, and saccharomyces boulardii 2billion/capsule. (This protects against bad yeast and bacterial/Cdiff overgrowth with antibiotics – see below.)
Prescript Assist Pro (SBO 620mg w Leonardite prebiotic, #60/bottle): Soil based probiotic organisms (SBO’s) are found in healthy sols and release powerful enzymes to purify and support healthy growth of good bacteria, protecting from bad bacteria & fungal overgrowth in our GI tract.

ProBiommune Lozenges (1 billion CFU/lozenge of Streptococcus Salivarius K12 probitoic). This is great for any child or adult with recurrent Strep throat or ear-throat-sinus-dental-gum-mouth-yeast (candida)-bad breath problems. (Studies have shown it decreases infections by 30%.) Take 1-2 lozenges 3x/day for week. (You get even more population in mouth of this good healthy bacteria when you gargle 1st with mouthwash with chlorhexadrine like Listerine.) Then take 1-2 once daily for 3 weeks, then 1-2 weekly thereafter. (CHILDREN: under 25# 1 lozenge/day, 25-50# 1 lozenge 2x/day, 50-75# 1 lozenge 3x/day.)
