In formal school, we were taught bacteria (loosely, germs) are bad. Germs cause diseases, we should wash our hands, observe general hygiene and so one.
What they didn’t emphasize is that we have good and bad bacteria.
The importance of Good Bacteria is so critical such that, without it we would not last for long
The human digestive system is inhabited by trillions of microorganisms, collectively referred to as the gut microbiome.
The gut or alimentary canal from mouth, food pipe, stomach, small intestines, large instestines to the anal opening is inhabited by trillions of microorganisms, collectively referred to as the gut microbiome.
The microbiome society consists of a balance of beneficial bacteria and harmful ones called pathogens.
The good bacteria for example produces negative grams which are harmful to pathogens.
Other micro organisms in the gut are neutral, neither harmful nor offering any benefit to our bodies.
Did you know, that any part in our body that has mucous membrane is inhabited by good bacteria that keep guard to steer away any pathogens from entering our bodies.
Mucous membranes line many tracts and structures of the body, including the mouth, nose, eyelids, trachea (windpipe) and lungs, stomach and intestines, and the ureters, urethra, and urinary bladder.
When we use antibacterial drugs we kill both good and bad bacteria
when we use antiseptic soaps we kill both good and bad bacteria
It’s a no brainer therefore that we need to constantly replenish our bodies with good bacteria from time to time.
Sources of Microbes to Replenish our Bodies
Traditionally, our ancestors used to eat fermented foods like traditionally femermented milk, traditionally fermented porridge and other community specific ferment foods like Mursik
In the industrialisation age, food has gone commercial and traditional methods of food preparation have been phased out to more chemically and mechanical driven methods that would fill up millions of bottles in a short span.
Industrialisation has not been without a cost.. most of which is a great deal to our health. Today if you purchase ferment porridge its loaded with artificial chemicals mimicking citric acid to give the porridge the sour taste.
Traditional porridge was cultured naturally by bacteria, which resulted to introducing beneficial bacteria to our ancestors guts through and through.
Yogurt, has one to three strains of beneficial bacteria, which is a big gap from the tens if not hundreds of bacteria strains that our ancestors benefited from in their conservative food preparation methods.
