Take Soil-Based Probiotics and Eat Dirt

Carolyn Dean MD ND | Monday, June 20, 2011

That’s what I thought about soil-based probiotics. It amounted to eating dirt and I just wasn’t interested. I thought the best probiotics were bifidobacteria and lactobacillus. It turns out that they are way down the list of what’s actually in our gut or what actually helps alleviate a wide variety of health problems.

Recently I read several studies about one particular soil-based probiotic called Prescript Assist. Then I spoke to a researcher and tried it myself. The researcher said that the human gut requires a balance of soil-based probiotics to be healthy. He also said that at first he was leery of this product because it showed beneficial effects on such a wide variety of conditions such as: allergies, diarrhea, dermatitis, Candida, H. pylori, IBS, IBD, leaky gut, GERD and viral infections. But the studies are being done and proving the effectiveness of Prescript Assist.

I’ve been taking other types of probiotics on and off for decades and I’ve never noticed that they did anything for me. However, I took one Prescript Assist in the evening and one the next morning and within 12 hours my next bowel movement was completely different from the millions I’ve had before. I had no gas, no stool odor and the stool was well formed and sunk like a log. I was amazed. Really amazed. And I only have to take one capsule per week to achieve good results.

More than a decade of clinical studies on Prescript Assist have shown no adverse effects or side-effects on all types of populations even at dosages 500 times the recommended amounts.

I wish I knew about this product when I was writing IBS for Dummies (with my sister) because Prescript Assist is a scientifically-researched, effective treatment for IBS and leaky gut. Anecdotal cases are accumulating about its benefits for intestinal yeast and fungal skin infections.

The suggested use for people with IBS, leaky gut, or excessive use of antibiotics is 2 capsules per day for the first 30 days, followed by 1 to 2 capsules per week thereafter. To me that represents a huge cost saving because you don’t have to take one or two doses of a probiotics every day.

Unlike most other probiotics, Prescript Assist is not a weak and fragile product. It does not have to be refrigerated and there is less than 5% loss of live bacteria at 2 years from date of manufacture. It can be taken on a full or empty stomach at any time of the day or evening.

What will I do about the six boxes of lactobacillus sitting in my fridge? I guess I’ll keep taking them till there gone because apparently lactobacillus and bifidobacteria are used as food by soil-based organisms. So, that’s why lacto and bifido seem to have benefits in various research studies.

I’m strongly recommending this probiotic (to make up for advising inferior products in the past!) and referring all my clients to this blog. You can obtain Prescript Assist from LL’s Magnetic Clay where you can also order your detox clay and magnesium oil, gel or cream.
