Already since the year 2022 it is known that infections with SARS-CoV-2 negatively affect the microbiome of the gastrointestinal tract!
In an April 2022 Italian study, SARS-CoV-2 was found to infiltrate human eukaryotic cells as well as the human bacterial flora. 1
In another study led by the team of Dr. Sabine Hazan, a renowned clinical gastroenterologist at Florida University in Gainesville, it was found that after Corona vaccination or Corona infection, Bifidus bacteria in the gut rapidly decreased. 2
In our clinic, we work with a laboratory where we can have our patients’ flora status tested if needed. In the past few months, it has become clear that the Bifidus cultures in a large number of patients were severely reduced. In parallel, the bacterium E. coli was often strongly increased. This shift in the intestinal flora can lead to various health complaints, such as fatigue, exhaustion, increased susceptibility to infection, inflammation and micro-inflammation in the body, digestive problems, and much more.
We as Atlaspraxis can advise you and help you to rehabilitate the intestines. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions about this!
