WHAT IS PROBIOTHERAPY?
Probiotherapy (pro = for; bios = life) is a therapy that prioritises the health and balance of the microbiome.
Probiotherapy starts from the human microbiome as a central point and considers the human body as a collection of different micro-organisms. All these organisms work closely together, as building blocks that support each other.
Although most research focuses on the gastrointestinal tract, we should not forget that there is also a skin, vaginal and oral microbiome. By the way, did you know that the composition of the microbiome varies greatly throughout the body?
WHEN IT IS OUT OF BALANCE
When we look at healthy skin, the skin microbiome is in balance. This means that the bacteria that live there are in symbiosis with each other and your body. Various factors around us can disturb this balance, which we call "dysbiosis". As a result, bad bacteria and/or fungi can overgrow and cause symptoms of inflammation or irritation of the skin. When you then turn to products that kill all bacteria, such as antibiotics, antiseptics, antimycotics, the problem only resolves itself temporarily and you create a vicious circle of incomplete recovery. Probiotherapy, on the other hand, serves to protect, to strengthen the balance of the microbiome and to restore microbial dysbiosis, to avoid the terrible cycle of relapse
This raises the question of whether our current hygiene and health habits take sufficient account of the importance of our microbiome. While hygiene remains important in combating infectious diseases (viral, bacterial or fungal), there is compelling evidence that the microbiome plays a crucial role in keeping bodily processes in balance and protecting against disease. It is generally believed that a diverse microbiome offers better protection against infections and external influences. The importance of the microbiome is neglected in many therapies and in general health care, for example through the use of antibacterial agents, antibiotics, antimycotics and antiseptics that cause extra damage to countless beneficial micro-organisms of the human body.
THE BEST OF
This is why probiotherapy uses good bacteria, known as "probiotics", to restore the microbiome. Probiotherapy is a collective term for all medicines, food supplements, cosmetics or general care products that protect, strengthen or restore the human microbiome. The living bacteria solve your skin problems, making probiotherapy an effective alternative to existing medication. At the same time, it has no side effects, making it as safe as skin care.
