The following is adapted from The Search for the Perfect Protein.
If you watch much TV, you’ve undoubtedly seen a heartburn medication commercial at some point. The makers of Pepcid and Zantac confidently tell us we can eat a hoagie with sausage and peppers and not feel any heartburn. How wonderful!
Except these commercials send the wrong message. They indoctrinate the public to believe the answer to their problem is another drug: “I’ll take this, and I’ll be fine.”
This mindset ignores the root causes of heartburn and indigestion and sends us down the wrong treatment pathway. In my experience, when people understand how stomach acid aids our digestion, they’re less likely to turn to a medication that blocks the production of stomach acid. They want their body to functional normally.

Soil-based organisms (SBOs) are bacteria spores that work in your gut much like a gardener. Spores provide key “reconditioning” strains of bacteria that help protect and recondition your gut flora, and prepare it for the introduction of probiotics. They help your microbiome recover from on-going assaults by fluoridated and chlorinated water, stress, medications, processed foods and refined sugars, EMFs, and pollution. These are not your ordinary probiotics.
