Your gastrointestinal tract (GI tract) is responsible for providing your body with nutrients, vitamins, and minerals found in the food you eat. Trillions of beneficial bacteria live in your GI tract, and are referred to as normal or good flora, and are essential for your overall health. As more than 70% of your immune system resides in your GI tract, its importance in Lyme disease treatment cannot be ignored.
Disbiosis occurs when the balance of your normal flora is disrupted by invading microorganisms. This occurs for several reasons, including stress, chronic inflammation, chronic illnesses, like chronic Lyme disease, poor diet, suppressed or compromised immune system, toxicity, antibiotics, alcohol, steroids, and birth control pills.
