How Staying In The Hospital Can Change Your Gut Bacteria


Eric Bakker here. Thanks for tuning in. I’m your naturopath from New Zealand. Now, I’m not going to knock glasses of water
over anymore. You’ve seen, I get a bit excited sometimes,
and I’m known to sort of throw glasses around the room with my hands, right? No more. Just three days in hospital can change the
bacteria in your gut. Not very nice, is it? So what they’re finding out is, many people
now who end up in ICU, Intensive Care, can have a huge big shift in their gut microbiota
literally, within 72 hours. They can wipe out hundreds of species of bugs
just like that in a snap. And it can take them months or years to recover. I’ve currently got a patient I’ve been working
with now, a 42-year-old gentleman. He’s an executive of a big company. And he’s finally getting up to a reasonably
good state of health. Three years on antibiotics, three years. I mean, how sad is that? So it’s really sad when you see that kind
of destruction day after day. But, I mean, common sense says, why would
you keep doing this to patients all the time, just pumping them full of this stuff? And here we’ve got a Dr. Mark Pallen, he’s
a British microbial genomics researcher at the Quadram Institute. He leads the research. I was quite surprised. I mean, I suspected that something like this
was going to happen. But I was taken back at the scale of the changes. I mean, for goodness sakes, that’s like waving
an AK-47 around and shooting it, and then you don’t understand why you got holes in
the ceiling and bullet holes everywhere. You just, you’re thinking, “How can I have
such destruction with a, just with a, only an AK?” Come on. Doesn’t it make common sense to you? I mean, it does to me. To assist the impact of intensive care treatment
on gut microbiome, the team tracked 24 people admitted for trauma, heart attacks, and cancer,
and emergencies to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Birmingham, United Kingdom over a 10-month
period. Many of those admitted were between 25 and
85, were unconscious or sedated. And they got permission from family members,
and they started to look at stool samples. Okay. So basically, they did a DNA sequencing from
these samples to have a thorough analysis. And what they found was over 75% of these
people showed a significant reduction in the microbial diversity during their stay. And the biggest change was with IV use. So the gut is normally really, an ecosystem
in its own right. To me, it’s no different from being in my
garden. I really value the soil in my garden, seriously
value it. People are amazed at how beautiful the roses
are looking and how nice the vegetables look. I don’t care for stuff above ground. I care where the roots go into, all right? Now, in your situation and in mine, the roots
is the gut. Okay, this is our soil, our foundation. Everything comes from this, and it builds
up the whole entire health of the organism. If we look back a long time ago, centuries
and centuries ago, people thought that the blood was the organism. And even go before, back then people thought
that spirits we’re basically in the body. That was the organism. But now we know through science that the human
microbiota is extremely important, because it influences every aspect of our being. And now we’re looking at a medical system
that’s systematically destroying this ecosystem of people. Is it any wonder why people end up sicker
coming out of hospital than when they went in the first place? That’s why I’m so healthy, because I don’t
go to hospital. Try and keep out of these places if you can,
okay? Because if you get pumped full of IV antibiotics
you’ve seen here, you’re going to be on the back foot for years, and years, and years. And once you get into that merry-go-round,
where they keep giving you antibiotics and you keep wiping out stuff, it can take a lifetime
to recover. And it concludes here with Dr. Pallen saying… Oh no, this is another one, actually, Joost
Wiersinga at the Academic Medical Center in Amsterdam, Netherlands. And Wiersinga says, “Medics should do more
to minimize the disruption to gut bacteria. If you need to give antibiotics, then give
them, but think about which antibiotic, for how long, and if you can stop it earlier.” Basically, what this doctor is saying, be
very cautious about an antibiotic for a patient. Think carefully. Think carefully when you’ve got an AK-47. What’s it going to do? Is it nice to look at? Do you feel good? Have a big ego having it? Well, you’re going to inflict a hell of a
lot of damage, and then wondering why, where the damage came from. I mean, for goodness sakes, it really makes
you wonder about people and logic, doesn’t it? Crazy. So that’s the study, anyway. That was published on the 1st of October this
year. Thanks for tuning in. Click on the link below if you want my free
