 In recent years, diagnosis dysbacteriosis exhibit approximately the same frequency as the ARI and during epidemics. Moreover, such a situation is typical only for Russia. Women's magazine JustLady that lies behind this popular diagnosis? Real disease or simply unwillingness or inability to understand the root cause of doctor disorders of the intestines?

Our invisible helpers

We always have contact with microorganisms environment and those who live on the skin and mucous membranes, as well as inside of the body, particularly the intestine, where they are more likely. During the evolution of humans and microorganisms have learned not only coexist, but also to extract from such close contact maximum benefit.

This mutually beneficial cooperation, or, in the language of science, symbiosis, allowing bacteria to get the nutrition they need and a "roof over your head." In this case, bacteria and do not remain in debt: produce enzymes to help us digest food better regulate the reabsorption of bile acids in the intestine, sex hormones, cholesterol, involved in water-salt metabolism. Bacteria isolated vital substances (vitamins, antibiotics, hormones, etc.), various neutralize toxins, are a source of energy.

They play a huge role in maintaining the immune system, combat cancer. Beneficial micro-organisms, not wanting to lose the "home place", desperately struggling with other human pathogens. Thus, a stable microflora protects the intestines from his settling foreign microbes.

 "The demographic problem" small world

It so happens that the natural balance of microorganisms is disrupted by changing their quantitative and qualitative composition. There are many reasons that can lead to such a failure, for example, the banal overeating or emotionally intense day.
But in a healthy organism failure is very short-lived: even after such a "radical" treatments like hydrotherapy, initial microbial landscape is restored within a few hours maximum per day.

But here's the body, weakened by constant stress, poor diet or fad diets, uncontrolled self-treatment, especially with the use of antibiotics, no longer able to keep their little helpers, and they begin to die. A holy place, as you know, is never empty! And the release of "living space" grab mushrooms and bacteria.

And that's when a person begins to run on doctors! His card accumulates huge number of different diagnoses, often conflicting, or there is a mysterious record - intestinal dysbiosis.

Causal confusion

Usuallydysbiosis accepted blame all the ills that affect defecation disorders and other ailments. And once installed culprit appointed and appropriate therapy, which is designed in some way to increase the number of beneficial bacteria and reduce harmful.

There are also activities to eliminate toxicity, ie, chronic poisoning of the body, the liver function is supported. However, all these half-measures. After all, if there was one goiter, where is the guarantee that he will not appear again?

Intestinal dysbiosis - The concept of microbiological, characterized by impaired intestinal microflora relations representatives. This is not a diagnosis, it is a symptom that accompanies any disease or malfunction of the body. There are some reasons that led to massive loss of beneficial bacteria. And all attempts to colonize the intestine of "outside" are doomed to failure. Because the conditions that caused the death of beneficial microbes, have not gone away!

You always have to look for the cause dysbiosis. Just restore microflora pointless until identified and corrected condition caused by it.

Expert opinion

Dysbacteriosis set in most cases on the basis of complaints (unstable stool, pain and discomfort in the abdomen, bloating, intolerance to certain foods, skin allergy, fatigue, etc.) and microbiological examination of stool, which reveals the change in the ratio of useful and "bad" microbes .

"This approach is clearly insufficient, - the head of the therapy department clinic of the Moscow Institute of Cybernetic MedicineVladimir Markovski. - Because it does not imply causation of dysbiosis. And therefore, prescribe treatment is often ineffective. Treatment should be directed at the cause rather than a consequence of it - goiter. "

- Vladimir Borisovich, what diagnostic methods you are using?

- We use the algorithm of examination, we called "gold standard". It is a complex of 20 studies, which cover almost all organs and systems and provide comprehensive medical information on the processes occurring in the body. After all, everyone goes their way to the disease, and of course, has its own individual reasons for its occurrence.

There are many conditions that lead to the development of dysbiosis: diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, cardiovascular, infectious diseases, chemotherapy, and radiation therapy Hormone.

Play the role of social factors: physical or psychological overload, incorrect or unbalanced diet, lack of vitamins.

During his ten years in the clinic more than once I became convinced that the "gold standard" allows the doctor to make the correct diagnosis and develop a strategy and tactics of treatment are optimally matched to each individual based on individual characteristics of his body.

- But perhaps, after all, in most cases bowel disease?

- There are a number of diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, which give a picture of dysbacteriosis various syndromes such as impaired intestinal absorption, resulting lack of an enzyme, irritable bowel syndrome, colitis, etc. Various Yes banal intestinal infections - no problem! By the way, the recent sharp increase in the number of patients with giardiasis, which used to identify, usually in children.
