Bilophila Wadsworthia anaerobic bacteria


    This is another fantastically interesting piece of research which has coincided nicely with “the microbiome project” findings.  It is very promising that research AT LAST is being channelled down these lines.  For me as an alopecia sufferer though things cannot happen quickly enough! I read and become impatient….. If we had our own … Continue reading

Is a bad bacteria in the gut causing our Alopecia?


We have always known that both good and bad bacteria live in our small and large intestine.  For many years though scientists believed they just “existed”.  Not knowing how specific each individual bacteria’s role was in the human body….. all that is slowly about to change as researchers have touched (and I mean literally just touched) … Continue reading

Fully agree with everything stated….. a man thinking well before his time 🙂 Professor Ayers has a blogspot called coolinginflammation and I would recommend anyone with Alopecia to read up on his blogs. http://coolinginflammation.blogspot.co.uk Genetics of Food Intolerances … Continue reading

Are Faecal Transplants the way forward for curing Auto Immune Diseases?


This is a very interesting link published just last month http://www.nature.com/nature/journal/v485/n7398_supp/full/485S12a.html   Your gut microflora might be aiding and abetting diabetes   In 2004, Fredrik Bäckhed and his colleagues at Washington University in St Louis, Missouri, noticed that gnotobiotic mice — born and raised to be free of germs — tended to be slimmer than … Continue reading

Antibiotics kill bacteria in the gut


What is becoming more and more apparent through recent research into Auto Immune Diseases is the relation between the disruption of gut bacteria in the small intestine thus causing an immune inflammatory response in the body, attacking healthy cells. Years ago Doctors willingly prescribed antibiotics on a regular basis to patients, possibly not knowing the drastic … Continue reading

Friendly Gut Bacteria can Trigger R.A. In Mice


How interesting!  The bacteria in the gut seem to play a MASSIVE role in all Auto Immune Diseases….. and now Rheumatoid Arthritis. Creating a massive inflammatory repsonse in  the body….. Just like in Multiple Sclerosis and Autism and Diabetes.   WOW imagine if we had our own INDEPENDANT RESEARCH….. how much farther forward we would be … Continue reading
