Gut Makeover for Cancer Patients

Having the right microbiome might massively affect the chances of a person surviving cancer

Studies show that intact gut bacteria are necessary for optimal chemotherapy efficacy

Breakthrough information for your Cancer Survivorship:

With an enormous volume of credible research behind her, Grace Gawler believes that the two most important additions you can make to your Cancer Survivorship are a Healthier diet that includes all the food groups ( for example the Mediterranean Diet), in conjunction with nourishing and increasing your own resident gut microbiome.  

Research indicates that the bacteria in your gut can affect your response to chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and other anti-cancer drugs. These interactions can be positive (certain gut bacteria making a cancer drug work better) or negative (resulting in treatment challenges), depending on your microbiome and the type of cancer you have. It is known that some microorganisms render cancer drugs ineffective, whereas others are necessary to make these drugs work.

“Thus, having the right microbiome, might massively affect the chances of a person surviving cancer.” Pierre Belichard, CEO of Enterome

Hervé Affagard, CEO of MaaT Pharma says – The gut microbiome has emerged as an important target in cancer therapy to repair the microbiome following harsh chemotherapy and antibiotic treatment regimens to improve patient survival. We are also seeing more and more correlation between the microbiome and immunotherapy’s efficacy and most recently in cellular therapies.”

With approximately 100 trillion gut bacteria in each of us, a healthy gut contributes to our general well-being. Optimal gut health is crucial important for cancer patients.

Introducing the safer alternative to probiotics: 
Hundreds of research articles inform us about the differences between an Abiotic (LAB – lactic acid bacteria metabolites) and Probiotics. An abiotic is rendered non-viable (stable) following fermentation by heat, acidification or some other stabilisation process. Probiotics contain concentrated (billions) live bacteria that may not reside in your own gut.

How are abiotic’s made? During fermentation, abiotic metabolites are produced and released when bacteria break down the substrate they are fed. In the case of LACTIS, 16 strains of Lactobacillus are fermented in Soymilk for 12 months. Soymilk proteins are the “substrate” which fuel certain bacteria to produce bio-active peptides. The residual abiotic elixir contains no soy. 

Introducing the Abiotic supplement – LACTIS!

Unlike “live” bacteria in probiotics; which recent research shows to be problematic for many reasons; abiotics (biogenic substances) are non-living bacteria whose cell chemistry has been transformed through the process of fermentation.

Simply put; abiotics have an ability to upregulate the immune system, inhibit infections, promote healthy gut micro flora and reduce biological stress.

Abiotics like LACTIS also offer other advantages:

No refrigeration required – therefore easy to travel with.
Has a greater stability and longer shelf life than probiotics.
Abiotics have been shown to bind toxins and bad bacteria.
Unlike probiotics, Abiotics cannot mutate and acquire resistance.
Unlike probiotics, Abiotics cannot become opportunistic pathogens.
Dose delivery is safe and dependable.
Can be taken during conventional cancer treatments.

“If you look back to over 50 years of clinical research on probiotics, there is no demonstration of clinical efficacy of live bacteria,” Pierre Belichard, CEO of Enterome

The local and systemic adverse effects of probiotics.Quite often patients consume probiotics while physicians encourage probiotic consumption, despite their potentially harmful effects.

Probiotics: If It Does Not Help It Does Not Do Any Harm. Really?

The medical literature warns against probiotic consumption in patients with congenital or acquired immune debilitating conditions. Also those with heart anomalies or who have been treated with chemo and radiotherapies. In addition, abdominal surgery, HIV, critically ill, post-surgery, autoimmune disease or immune suppression, pregnancy, neutropenia, including antibiotic-associated diarrhea, active ulcerative colitis, and potential for translocation of probiotic bacteria across bowel wall.

The truth is that until recently, scientists & researchers did not know the consequences of probiotic supplement use in some patient groups; especially those with already compromised immune systems. They can even be problematic for some healthy people. The issue stems from “live bacteria” contained in probiotic supplements; versus extracts of “dead bacteria” as used in the fermented gut health supplement LACTIS.

According to Clifford Adams (Belgium) in a paper called The Probiotic Paradox: Pub Nutrition Research Reviews (2010) “The use of dead probiotics as biological response modifiers has several attractive advantages; such products would be very safe and have a long shelf life.” Credit image: Neu Alf who designed the figure

Gene issues with ingesting “live” probiotics – a matter of safety.

New research in the journal Cell Host & Microbiome, suggests that under certain conditions, probiotics can be harmful due to their ability to exchange genetic material and evolve unpredictably in the gut.

“If we’re going to use living things as medicines, we need to recognize that they are going to adapt, and that means what you put in your body is not necessarily what’s going to be there even a couple hours later.”
