Bacillus Megaterium Characteristics
Rare to none: Bacillus megaterium is a rod-shaped, gram-positive, endospore forming, aerotolerant species of bacteria used as a soil inoculant in agriculture and horticulture. Bacterium is arranged into the streptobacillus form. It is not generally associated with infection, although immunosuppressed persons can become infected with almost anything.See 1 more doctor answer
Botulism: The name you've been assigned to look up has been out of date since before I was in med school. It's Clostridium botulinum. Botulism toxin is as deadly as any poison you'll find, and can be acquired preformed in food, or develop in an infected wound, or rarely be formed in the gut -- especially in a baby fed raw honey.
Bacillus cereus: Bacillus cereus or b. Cereus is a type of bacteria that produces toxins. These toxins can cause two types of illness: one type characterized by diarrhea and the other, called emetic toxin, by nausea and vomiting. It comes from contaminated food that is undercooked and generally lasts a day.
Soil bacterium: It exists in soil and may infect devitalized tissue that get contaminated with soil. See this site for info: http://medical-dictionary. Thefreedictionary. Com/Bacillus+subtilis For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
Depends: The signs and symptoms depend on the route of exposure. Please consult this site for info. Http://www. Cdc. Gov/anthrax/basics/symptoms. Html
Likely: It is normally grows in soil and colon.
Got döderlein's bacillus to restore my vaginal flora (daily, 1 vaginal capsule for 10 days). How long till I notice a difference?
Bacterial vaginosis?: Difference in what? You do not indicate what symptoms are occurring or what else you may be doing to help eliminate them. This anaerobic bacillus converts glycogen in the vagina to lactic acid, which changes the ph (acidity) to help control growth of unwanted bacteria, but you may need other antibiotics to eliminate the cause first, and Metronidazole may be killing the doderlein's bacillus.
Why do you ask?: This is a common bug that grows on the skin and almost never causes problems. If it's food poisoning, antibiotics won't help. Best wishes.
Not at all: Erysipelothrix, lactobacillus, and garnerella are usually catalase-negative just among the common gram-positives.
Yes: Don't expect any miraclesGet a more detailed answer ›
Yes: Lactose intolerance is due to the lack of an enzyme to break down lactose so that the sugar can be absorbed in the upper intestine. Instead the undigested lactose passes to the lower intestinal tract where fermentation causes the gas, loose BM etc. Probiotic and prebiotic would not worsen your intolerance.

Is it ok to take vaginal probiotic capsules (doderlein's bacillus) for maintenance of vaginal health for 7 days, together with oral probiotic capsules?
Expect gas/bloating: Would suggest stopping the oral probiotic since the combination may cause you significant bloating. Please note that the use of probiotics remains controversial and while it may help specific individuals it may not help others.
