  • Vaginal or rectal itching

  • Weakness

What are the causes of dysbiosis?

Dysbiosis (also called dysbacteriosis) is a microbial imbalance inside or on the body like damaged microbiota. Much of our well-being and immune system depends on the ratio of good to bad bacteria throughout our body, but especially in the digestive tract.

Digestive tract is like our overall health and well-being control center which influences everything that happens elsewhere in the body.

Studies have shown that the intestinal microbiota affect not only our physical body, but also our brain function, moods, feelings and fears.

Therefore, it is extremely important to maintain a balance between good bacteria, ie probiotics, and bad bacteria. However, it seems that nowadays it is almost impossible to keep the body’s microbiota in balance. Why is that so, what are the symptoms, causes and consequences of dysbiosis and how to treat this imbalance of microbiota naturally?

Bacterial function or microbiota functions in the gastrointestinal tract

  • Digestion of food – The microflora breaks down proteins, carbohydrates and fats. Saprophytic bacteria form various enzymes that increase the activity of the digestive tract. Acids and gases produced by bacteria promote normal intestinal function and the production of faeces, thus releasing residues from the body.

  • Synthesis and development of certain useful and important substances (vitamins, hormones (more than 20 different), enzymes, elements of the immune system, etc.) – Vitamins can only be produced in the body by a healthy microflora. The main workers there are bifidobacteria, bacteroides, lactic acid bacteria and E. coli. The E. coli can form many vitamins, such as B1, B2, B6, PP, B12 and K. Bacteria in the cecum synthesize the most vitamin B12 and contribute to the absorption of the same vitamin found in meat foods. The microflora also creates conditions for the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins such as A, E and D. This is especially important in children, as children develop a vitamin deficiency if the microflora is out of balance.

  • Water uptake

  • Protecting the body and repelling dangerous bacteria – E. coli (mainly) form bactericidal and bacteriostatic (bacterial proliferation inhibiting) substances, which are similar in properties to antibiotics. In this way, they prevent the multiplication of serious infectious diseases.

  • Neutralization of toxins and harmful substances

  • Maintaining normal cholesterol levels

  • Sustaining normal intestinal gas levels

  • Maintaining a stable metabolic and hormonal balance

  • Preventing the formation of stones in the organs and even the development of cancer

  • Developing immunity – In addition, the intestinal microflora participates in the formation of immunity by promoting the synthesis of protective bodies – immunoglobulin.

For several years scientists have detected links between bowel cancer and the gut microbiome. New research presented at the National Cancer Research Institute (NCRI) conference in Glasgow is now suggesting there may be a causal relationship between a specific type of gut bacteria and an increased risk of bowel cancer.

“Lots of studies in mice and humans have shown an association between the gut microbiome and bowel cancer but very few have provided convincing evidence for causality,” explains Kaitlin Wade, a researcher on the project from the University of Bristol. “In other words, it's really difficult to discern whether components of the gut microbiome can cause bowel cancer, whether the disease itself leads to variation in the gut microbiome or whether the association is due to some other factors that cause variation in both."

"We need to classify the exact species or strain of bacteria in the Bacteroidales group, and we need to do more work to understand how and why human genetic variation can alter the gut microbiome,” saws Wade. “Even if these results show that these bacteria may cause bowel cancer, we don't know whether trying to alter them in an effort to reduce the risk of bowel cancer might have other, unforeseen effects on other aspects of health.”

Consequences of a Dysbiosis – Microbial Imbalance

If the proportion of pathogenic microbiota or bad bacteria increases up to 25%, then in this case the proportion of good bacteria has already decreased too much and the existing ones can no longer perform their tasks.

The characteristics of a dysbiosis (imbalance of microbiota) can manifest in a number of different ways.

However, dysbiosis is usually mild and can be treated through medication and lifestyle changes. But if left untreated, dysbiosis can lead to chronic conditions and serious diseases.

So, see your doctor right away if you’re experiencing any unusual or persistent stomach pain or skin irritation.

Dysbiosis is a risk factor for certain diseases and conditions, including:

  • Allergies

  • Anemia

  • Cancer in your colon or rectum

  • Celiac disease

  • Damage in the function of organs

  • Depression

  • Diabetes

  • Gastrointestinal (GI) disorders, including gastritis, peptic ulcer disease

  • Gut diseases, such as colitis

  • Gynecological problems and Candida, a type of yeast infection

  • Heart disease or heart failure

  • Herpes

  • IBS

  • Inflammation

  • Irritability

  • Late-onset dementia

  • Leaky gut syndrome

  • Liver and kidney disease

  • Mental disorders

  • Obesity

  • Parkinson’s disease

  • Polycystic ovary syndrome

  • Skin conditions, such as eczema

  • The amount of waste generated by bacteria begins to poison the body and the ability to fight infections decreases
