It’s the naturopath called Eric Bakker. That’s me. I’m from New Zealand. So let’s look at some pharmaceutical drugs. So there was a study done recently conducted by Yale University where they looked at 271 oral medications, common ones, and 76 bacteria in the person’s digestive system. They found 171 of those drugs, commonly prescribed drugs, were affected in not a good way by at least one type of bacteria in the human gut. They’re starting to understand now that pharmaceutical medications can become either very toxic or have no effective therapeutic window at all. It will have a mildly effective window, purely due to the bacteria in the person’s gut. All these studies are revealing now how powerful the microbiome is, but also how it’s powerfully influenced by toxic medications. Okay? So I want you to bear this in mind. So this is why some people, Auntie Mary may for example get nauseous and vomiting on the drug, but then your Mom might have taken this same drug and felt really good on it and the headache went away.

So this explains many idiosyncratic reactions that people experience with pharmaceutical medications. So you need to be very careful. The healthier the microbiome, the more likelihood you can tolerate a medication and it’s probably going to work more effectively than if you’ve had a very poor microbiome. This also explains why many people who have got very poor GI tracts can’t tolerate medications very well at all.

I think this is an understanding for the medical profession, That they need to get people’s digestive systems to a higher level of health before they can really work with them with a lot of these toxic medications. It’s all coming out finally.

And that’s my take on it, too. That’s the Yale Study showing you that you can have reactions ranging from mild to extreme depending on your gut bacteria. So they may even in future do still testing like I do to determine what type of bugs are in a person’s gut before they pull the trigger on the prescription. I think it’ll make a lot of sense and it may actually help to prevent a lot of misery. That’s it. Thanks for tuning in.
