Do your clients have digestive issues, food sensitivity, autoimmune trouble, or memory and brain function problems? Check their microbiomes.

As Emotion Code™ and Body Code™ practitioners, we work to identify energy imbalances in the body that may cause physical and emotional symptoms. After we release those imbalances, we expect the body to naturally recover. But what if the body doesn’t have what it needs to do so?
Since 2015, there have been many books published regarding the role of the microbiome in our health. Microbiome is a word used by doctors and medical researchers, consisting of “micro,” for small or microscopic, and “biome,” referring to a community of flora occupying a large habitat, which is the human body. Our microbiome is made up of thousands of strains of bacteria and other organisms, mostly lodged in our intestinal walls. The good gut bacteria take our digested food and manufacture the chemicals needed for all parts of our body to operate properly.
But how do we know if our body has all of the good bacteria we need? Modern medicine has not yet developed an accurate test for determining this. But as energy practitioners, we can use muscle testing and The Body Code™ to ask at what level (percentage) our current microbiome is functioning. Most people I have tested in the United States have microbiomes functioning at 25-40%. What might be causing these low levels? There could be several factors. Antibiotics tend to destroy the good bacteria and well as the bad. Steroids, chemotherapy, radiation and the combination of multiple prescription medications may also destroy our good gut bacteria. Nutrition, especially lack of healthy fruits and vegetables, can also keep our microbiomes from recovering.
“One of my friends was starting to exhibit symptoms of multiple sclerosis. When I checked her microbiome functioning, it was down to only 8%.”
Do your clients have digestive issues, food sensitivities, autoimmune trouble, or memory and brain function problems? I would suggest checking their microbiomes. One of my friends was starting to exhibit symptoms of multiple sclerosis. When I checked her microbiome functioning, it was down to only 8%. After learning how to restore her microbiome and taking the proper steps, she is free of any of her prior symptoms.
I read three books last year on this topic, and have been working with dozens of people to restore their microbiomes since last fall. The books I found to be most informative and helpful were Brain Maker, by David Perlmutter, M.D. and Gut Balance Revolution, by Gerard Mullin, M.D. I muscle-tested the methods they use to restore the microbiome, which involved dietary changes, supplements, and the use of probiotics and probiotic foods. I then experimented with these methods among my friends and clients, and monitored their progress over several months to restore 100% microbiome function. No one stuck with the diets, as they were too restrictive. Some people took the supplements, and some ate the probiotic foods. All of them took a probiotic pill daily.
“Dietary restrictions and nutritional/herbal supplements seemed unnecessary. The people that ate probiotic foods progressed faster toward 100% functioning than those that did not.”
What I discovered in my practice was that dietary restrictions and nutritional/herbal supplements seemed unnecessary. The people who ate probiotic foods progressed faster toward 100% functioning than those that did not. The probiotic foods were 4 oz. daily of kefir (fermented milk that tastes like liquid yogurt), 4 oz. daily of kombucha (fermented tea, any brand) and probiotic yogurt. Whole Foods carries kefir, kombucha and the probiotics.
For the easiest and cheapest way to restore your microbiome, take one probiotic pill every evening for 60-120 days (muscle test for number of days). That’s it! That’s all that was necessary for everyone I have monitored. Dr. Perlmutter has developed a line of the probiotic pills called “Garden of Life Dr. Formulated Probiotics” which is available on Amazon.com. There are several different strengths and varieties offered (again use your muscle testing), but the less expensive one is “Once Daily” with “30 billion” in an orange banner on the box. It has 14 probiotic strains and has worked well for my friends and clients. I’m sure there are other probiotic pills available that will work just as well – the more probiotic strains of bacteria, the better.
Muscle-testing with The Body Code™ may quickly help you determine how well your microbiome is functioning, and the “Foods, Herbs and Nutrients” portion of The Body Code™ Mind Maps (located within “Nutrition and Lifestyle”) contains detailed identification charts to help you determine any dietary changes that may be needed. These tools can greatly help you in naturally restoring your microbiome’s functionality.
Here’s to great health!
