A Probiotic Skin Cream Made With a Person’s Own Microbes

According to The Atlantic, scientists have invented an eczema treatment that uses the patient’s own microbes to create a probiotic skin cream that not only can heal the skin, but destroy dangerous bacteria. So far, it appears to be working very well — to the point that levels of S. aureus fell by more than 90 percent on the affected patients.

This is one more affirmation of the importance of your gut microbiome to the health of your entire body, inside-out. It’s been proven time and again that nourishing your gut bacteria is critical for health and mental well-being, and mounting research suggests that your microbiome — colonies of bacteria, viruses and other microbes living in your gut — may be one of the preeminent factors determining your health and longevity.

One of the best and least expensive ways to optimize your gut microbiome is to eat traditionally fermented and fiber-rich foods. One of the reasons a healthy diet is able to influence your health is by creating an optimal environment for beneficial bacteria in your gut, while decreasing pathogenic or disease-causing bacteria, fungi and yeast.

Eating a plant-based, fiber-rich diet is also crucial: If your gut health is compromised, fiber may feed pathogenic bacteria; healing your gut with probiotic-rich fermented vegetables is recommended before eating a high-fiber diet.

Probiotic supplements can also be beneficial. If you have to take an antibiotic, be sure to also take a high-quality probiotic. To ensure the bacteria’s survival, take the probiotic a few hours before or after taking the antibiotic.
