Definition. A biofilm is a sticky, slimy layer of a mucus-like substance that some microbes secrete to protect themselves from attack.
In the human body, some invading bacteria, viruses, fungi and some parasites wall themselves off with biofilms to prevent our bodies from attacking and destroying them.
Some doctors consider biofilms a major problem that hinders the elimination of certain infections. Among the most common are gum disease or periodontal disease.
NUTRITIONAL BALANCING AND BIOFILMS
We are often asked if a nutritional balancing program can get rid of biofilms. We have not done involved studies. However, those on a nutritional balancing program usually easily get rid of periodontal and many other infections.
Therefore, we presume that biofilms are handled well by a nutritional balancing program. When one remineralizes the body, corrects the acidity of the tissues, and supplies all the nutrients the body requires, biofilms do not seem to be a problem for the body.
DOES ONE NEED TO MAKE CHANGES TO A NUTRITIONAL BALANCING PROGRAM IF ONE SUSPECTS BIOFILM?
No. The regular program seems to be very adequate to handle biofilms. The diet is very important, however. Please eat plenty of cooked vegetables with each meal.
