The Importance of the Microbiome


Our bodies are hosts to trillions of bacteria, fungi and other microbes. Together, they comprise our “microbiome” and they vastly outnumber our own human cells. 


Until fairly recently, this population was considered a potential source of infection and primarily a nuisance. However, we have come to discover that the microbiome helps us in extracting nutrients and calories from our food. It also helps us detoxify. 

Perhaps most importantly, the microbiome is intertwined with the immune system. It protects our organs from microbial invasions and helps suppress or eliminate harmful bacteria.

Microbiome Disturbance


Microbiome disturbances, known as “dysbiosis,” “leaky gut,” “gut inflammation, or “small intestinal bowel overgrowth,” occur when the balance between the “good” and “bad” bacteria, fungi and microbes isn’t optimal. As a result, the gastrointestinal tract cannot absorb nutrients properly and protect the body from dietary antigens, viable microorganisms and bacterial products. Without a healthy microbiome, your body cannot break down undigested food for absorption and your  large intestine struggles to absorb important vitamins and minerals. Additionally, detoxification becomes challenging. Because your body is unable to rid itself of the toxins, they’re reabsorbed into the bloodstream, making you feel sick.

Conditions Associated with Microbiome Disturbance

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome

  • Crohn’s Disease/Ulcerative Colitis

  • Chronic Constipation

  • Intractable Diarrhea

  • Fat Intolerance

  • Gallbladder Dysfunction

  • Pathogenic Biofilm Disorders

  • Fatty Liver

  • Pancreatitis

  • Food Allergies and Sensitivities

  • Abdominal Bloating/Cramping

  • Diverticular Disease and Diverticulitis 

  • Dysbiosis/Candida Albicans

  • Parasitic Infections

  • Autoimmune Disorders like Rheumatoid Arthritis, Lupus, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), Multiple Sclerosis, Guillain-Barre Syndrome, and Hashimoto's Thyroiditis

How Microbiome Disturbance Causes These Conditions

When there is microbiome disturbance, the body's immune system recognizes it as an invading organism, and it triggers an overreaction and attack on the body's own tissues. This misguided immune response damages and disrupts various systems in the body, causing chronic and degenerative disease.

How Medical Lipid Colon Cleanses Help Microbiome Disturbances


Medical Lipid Colon Cleanses effectively remove abnormal mucus, toxic products and bacteria from the bowel. Additionally, it removes retained stool that can generate toxins. More than simple hydrotherapy, Medical Lipid Colon Cleanses soak the colon and remove caked on stool that may have remained on certain parts of the colon for years. 


Without these malaise and disease causing toxins, the gut biome can return to normal function, ensuring improved absorption of the vital nutrients we ingest and encouraging repair and strengthening of the immune system.


The Matzinger Institute of Healing’s Medical Lipid Colon Cleanse includes nutrients specifically selected to repopulate the healthy bacteria.

Heal the Gut, Heal the Body
