Dysbiosis can be caused by antibiotics, candida yeast and parasites, steroid medication, cancer therapies, chronic stress (abnormal cortisol), toxic overload and environmental contaminants, and poor food choice s such as a diet low in fiber, high in processed foods, and high in sugar.
Alterations in the bowel flora and its activities are now believed to be contributing factors in many chronic and degenerative diseases. Irritable Bowel Syndrome, Inflammatory Bowel Disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and AS, have all been linked to alterations in the microflora. The intestinal dysbiosis hypothesis suggests a number of factors associated with modern western living have a detrimental impact on the GI tract. Factors such as antibiotics, physical and psychological stress, and dietary components have been found to contribute to intestinal dysbiosis. If these factors can be eliminated or at least attenuated then treatment aimed at manipulating the microflora may be successful.
