Gastroenteritis (or ‘gastro’) is commonly caused by viral or bacterial infections and results in vomiting and/or diarrhoea. They are very easily spread from person to person. Symptoms may include nausea, vomiting, fever, abdominal pain, diarrhoea, headache and muscle aches. Symptoms can take between one and three days to develop and usually last between one and two days, sometimes longer. The main complication of gastro is dehydration which can be prevented if the fluid lost is replaced.
If you are concerned you should see your doctor.
After the acute symptoms of gastro have abated, it’s time to implement certain nutrients to restore the integrity of your gut. These nutrient help in healing your digestive mucosa from the viral onslaught; ‘mopping’ up and preventing further damage from the infection; and supporting your immune system for a speedy and complete recovery.
Core Treatment of Gastroenteritis
Colostrum contains immunoglobulins that have antibody activity. Colostrum displaces gut pathogens and supports immunity
Lactoferrin helps curb bacterial growth and inhibiting the adhesion and invasion of bacteria in the gut. It also helps increase the proliferation of healthy microflora and assists in the restoration and enhancement of the microbiome
Saccharomyces Boulardii (SB)
SB addresses digestive dysbiosis, including pathogens to restore a healthy gut environment.
Follow-up Treatment of Gastroenteritis
The highly researched probiotic strains, Lactobacillus rhamnosus, Saccharomyces boulardii, and Bifidobacterium animalis ssp lactis have demonstrated the ability to displace pathogenic bacteria, protect the existing good bacteria and encourage restoration of the microbiome to restore optimal function of the gut.
