The treatment of inflammatory bowel disease, such as Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, is still in its infancy. From the perspective of physiotherapy, intestinal flora has played an important role here for many years. Little by little, traditional medicine follows its example and is busy looking for relationships between intestinal flora and inflammatory bowel disease. In October 2017, the latest findings were published: in the future of Crohn’s disease, probiotics can be used to restore the lost balance of intestinal flora.
Scientists in Cleveland, Ohio, University Hospital found that disorders of the large intestine can play an important role in inflammatory bowel disease. They discovered particularly high levels of Candida in the intestinal plants of patients with Crohn’s disease: Candida tropicalis.
The fungus Candida and the gastrointestinal fungi are widespread, and are among the yeasts. It is mainly Candida albicans, when people suffer from infection by gastrointestinal fungi or vaginal fungi. However, the most common fungal infection is Candida tropicalis.
Tropical Candida in intestinal plants in patients
Patients with Crohn’s disease now have much higher levels of tropical Candida than their healthy relatives, according to gastrointestinal and liver disease researchers. Therefore, one wanted to be used in the treatment of chronic inflammatory bowel diseases such as Crohn’s disease on antifungal agents (and fungicides) and other probiotics.
“The human digestive system hosts billions of microorganisms, some of which are human friends, while others, if they multiply suddenly, can also be harmful and contribute to the development of the disease.” “We have now identified a large number of microorganisms, including those that play a crucial role in CED,” said Dr. Mahmoud Ghanoum of the Center for Medical Fungiology at University Clinics, Cleveland, Ohio.
In Crohn’s disease: 1 fungus and 2 bacteria
“Unfortunately, in previous research we focused mainly on bacterial diversity, we forgot the fungus that has a great impact on our health, so in our study, we observed the fungi community in the digestive system and we call them in their entirety also mycobioma “.
For this purpose, the intestinal flora was compared with healthy people with intestinal plants from patients with Crohn’s disease. Then, one looked at what could have been concrete that had led to an imbalance in the intestinal flora of the patients. It was found that Crohn’s patients had a large amount of tropical Candida and very large amounts of Serratia marcescensand Escherichia coli.
These three microorganisms, discovered by researchers, worked closely together. They formed a strong film similar to a plaque in the intestinal lining, which can greatly increase intestinal inflammation.
Treatment of the new Crohn’s disease: fight against fungi and develop intestinal flora
Now we want to use antimicrobials first, to reduce the excessive colonization of fungi. At the same time, probiotics (which are beneficial intestinal bacteria) are described, which first kill the fungus, and second, to ensure a healthy balance between the existing intestinal bacterial strains and, thirdly, to dissolve the type plate. triad. .
Our pioneering discovery confirms that bacteria and fungi play a crucial role in the progression of health and disease. This, in turn, helps us to better understand the disease and, of course, allows us to develop more effective treatments for Crohn’s disease, “Dr. Gnome concluded.
Therefore, if you have Crohn’s disease, ask your doctor for the appropriate preparations. How to build intestinal plants, described here, you should discuss the use of the mentioned preparations with your doctor, since they are general products for the construction of intestinal plants and not products that have been specially tested for Crohn’s disease.
