📙 2. Instability recovery of intestinal flora and removal of propionic acid
As pointed out in the schematic diagram of the progression of autism (Schematic illustration of autism development and aggravation), the degeneration of the brain is caused by dysbiosis of the intestinal flora, and in particular, toxic substances produced by harmful intestinal bacteria represented by propionic acid are introduced into the body. Therefore, to stably maintain the autism treatment effect, antiviral action, the primary cause, and antibacterial action, the secondary cause, must be comprehensively performed.
What activity should be considered in the antibacterial action to resolve intestinal dysbiosis?
The action of reducing the population of harmful bacteria is the most decisive. For example, Clostridium is an anaerobic bacterium strongly suspected of exacerbating autism. It has already been demonstrated through treatment with the antibiotic vancomycin that autism symptoms can be improved when the entire population of anaerobic bacteria other than Clostridium is reduced. However, the treatment could not be continued due to various side effects, and when vancomycin was stopped, the autism treatment effect disappeared. Now, there is a need for a treatment that is harmless to the human body and can produce a continuous antibacterial effect.
Among those identified as substances capable of very stable antibacterial action, it is a method of using prebiotic substances rather than direct antibiotics. The representative importance identified so far is ①’inulin’.
Inulin acts as a prebiotic that is decomposed only by bacteria in the large intestine without being digested in the stomach and small intestine.
It is a water-soluble natural fiber that is very commonly observed in natural herbal medicines. Most typically, it is abundant in natural medicines such as pork potato, dandelion root, burdock root, and lotus root. Therefore, if you treat autism using herbal medicine and check it through an organic acid test, it is not difficult to confirm that the level of Clostridium is lowered.
①Inulin is a type of prebiotic. It’s not digested or absorbed in the stomach. It stays in the bowel and helps certain beneficial bacteria to grow. Inulin is a starchy substance found in a wide variety of fruits, vegetables, and herbs, including wheat, onions, bananas, leeks, artichokes, and asparagus. (https://www.webmd.com/)
