The most effective treatment of intestinal dysbacteriosis can be achieved only by a complex method – it is determined by the gastroenterologist from the results of laboratory tests.
Trying to solve the problem only with drugs that contain the necessary microflora does not always work. It is needed not only to restore the essential balance of flora, where the bacteria beneficial to the body will prevail but also strengthen the immune system, to increase its resistance to pathogenic microorganisms. When treating intestinal dysbiosis, the doctor also takes into account the fact that the “bad” bacteria provoked the development of the disease, and prescribes appropriate therapy. Its goal is the removal of toxic products from the intestines, the formation of which contributed to the violation of microflora. If the dysbacteriosis is accompanied by motor disorders, they again must be eliminated. Colonic therapy will also help to get rid of harmful bacteria and strengthen the peristaltic of muscles.
With dysbiosis of I-II degree, therapy consists mainly of selecting the right foods. The diet includes lactic acid containing food, vitamin complexes, as well as food containing trace elements useful for growth and development of the microflora. The menu for dysbiosis should promote the colonisation and fixing of beneficial microflora in the intestine – it is essential to consume enough fibre that is part of plant food. With a mild form of dysbiosis, supplements with bifidobacteria, as a rule, are not prescribed.
Treatment of intestinal dysbiosis III degree includes, in addition to diet, the prescription of probiotics. After the drug passes the stomach and gets to the colon, lactic acid bacteria begin to multiply actively and slow the growth of “harmful” microorganisms. Thus there is a natural cleansing of the intestine from harmful bacteria and restoring a natural balance in it.
With the development of grade IV dysbiosis, bifidobacteria that protect our body in the intestine are absent, and the number of other “good” bacteria – lactobacilli – is significantly reduced. Under such conditions, “bad” microorganisms multiply rapidly, and the body is poisoned by toxins.
For the treatment of dysbacteriosis of the intestine of the IV degree, it is necessary to use antibacterial drugs. But they must be used with caution as this can aggravate the situation and transfer one type of dysbiosis to another. After treatment with antibiotics, the natural balance of the intestine should be restored. To do this, prescribe probiotics, a therapeutic diet, vitamins and trace elements.
Even after successful treatment, the intestinal dysbacteriosis can return, and therefore do not forget about the prevention of this disease.
