Is there a test that can determine the ratio of good to bad bacteria (or vice versa) in the stomach/intestines?

Is there a test that can determine the ratio of good to bad bacteria (or vice versa) in the stomach/intestines?

No test: Great thought question. However, you are assuming 1) we know not only all the community of species of bacteria in the body (aka. The micro biome), but 2) we also know which bacteria is "good" and "bad". There is still a lot of research to answer these two issues- especially when good bacteria, if there is too much of it, can be "bad" by causing an imbalance with other bacteria in the gut. ...Read more

Is it essential to treat faecalis bacteria if a lab test says that someone has the bacteria in his stomach or intestines. Symptoms, bloating and pain.

Get 2nd opinion: The stomach and small intestine are not usually cultured for bacteria such as these, and the daignosis can't be made without culture. If this is a diagnosis presented to you by an independent medical thinker, perhaps with a diagnosis of "gut dysbiosis", get with a scientific practitioner instead. These practitioners are often sincere but I believe they're misguided. ...Read more

I have sle  and at time i feel sick and think I have bacteria  in my stomach also bad smell in my mouth is there any thing over-the-counter i can have?

Sure, but...: There's lots of things you can take, but what are you treating here? When you have a systemic disease like sle, your increased risk factors (over the general population without your disease) for significant infection and pathology warrant evaluation and directed treatment--not symptom-based herbal products. Please give your doctor a call. ...Read more

See your doctors: See your physician for your stomach problems and see your dentist for an evaluation of your teeth and gums. If the gums are puffy and bleeding, you at a minimum have gingivitis or possibly early periodontitis. These conditions need to be treated. ...Read more
