Dysbiosis – A Condition of Microbial Imbalance in The Human Body

By | May 3, 2015

Dysbiosis is a condition of microbial imbalance in the human body. It’s often reported to be a digestive tract problem. Dysbiosis is mostly associated with diseases inclusive of colitis, cancer, obesity, chronic fatigue syndrome and inflammatory bowel disease altogether. In most cases, microbial colonies that are found within or on the body are known to be beneficial or benign altogether. The appropriate or beneficial microbial colonies are known to carry out necessary and helpful functions that include the aiding of digestion and the protection of the body from consequent penetration of pathogenic microbes. It is important to note that the beneficial microbial colonies function by competing amongst their kind in a bid to gain necessities such as resources or space.

Dysbiosis – A Condition of Microbial Imbalance in The Human Body

The phenomenon behind dysbiosis is quite related to the bacterial influence on the body and has been in one way or the other been linked to terms such as bacterial imbalance or microbial imbalance while in most cases the phenomenon has been referred to as an increased level of harmful bacteria with regards to a reduced level of the latter beneficial bacteria altogether. It is necessary to note that dysbiosis may be caused by several aspects inclusive of diverse things such as inappropriate antibiotic exposure, the inappropriate and repeated use of alcohol and diet to some point.

Apparently, when the balance depicted by dysbiosis is disturbed in any manner, the latter colonies constitute a decreased or reduced ability to check or influence the latter’s growth altogether.  This kind of an event may lead to further damage in other minute or smaller but beneficial ones that constitute the vicious cycle altogether.

Apparently, as more beneficial colonies continue to undergo damage altogether, the balance respond son the effect with a pronounced imbalance which results to more overgrowth issues since the damaged colonies continue to deteriorate in monitoring the growth of the overgrowing ones altogether.  The persistence of such kind of a situation may result to chronic and pervasive imbalance amongst colonies which functions by minimizing the beneficial nature of the consequent colonies altogether. From this point of view, the imbalance described may be explained by the fact that microbial colonies tend to result to the excretion of many and different types of waste byproducts.

In this regard, the body is capable of effectively managing the imbalance by using different waste removal mechanisms in normal circumstances. On the same note, inappropriate and oversized colonies have a consequent production of byproducts.  In this effect as the amount of byproducts from the microbes increases, the high waste byproduct levels can result to the overburdening of the body’s waste removal mechanisms.

In conclusion it is important to appreciate the notion that alterations in the apparent bowel flora and the consequent activities can be termed as the main contributing factors in most degenerative and chronic diseases. The irritable bowel syndrome is a common syndrome in this relation, a condition that can be termed as inflammatory bowel disease, ankylosing spondylitis and rheumatoid arthritis. All these aspects are all linked to intestinal microflora where the intestinal dysbiosis hypothesis discussed in the essay aims at expounding on the suggested factors that are associated with the consequent microflora and their activities in the intestine. Intestinal dysbiosis gives a clear impression of a demerit on an affected person.

On this line of thought, one can successfully counter the causes of dysmbiosis by engaging treatments that are aimed at ensuring an alteration to the condition and manipulating the microflora altogether. The main role of intestinal bacteria remains elusive though the balance between harmful and protective species of the intestinal bacteria constitutes the effects posed by the latter.
