FECTION is a probiotic (pro=for and biotic=life); it is used when you would consider using an antibiotic (anti=against and biotic=life). Let me describe what an antibiotic is. Visualize a mercenary: a guy that goes into a place and just kills things. This antibiotic does something similar: it goes into the body, and kills all bacteria (it’s an antibacterial).
FECTION is not like that. When FECTION is introduced into the system as food, it pays attention. If it sees a bacteria that is destructive, it destroys it; but, if it is a bacteria that helps digest food, or one that helps with proper digestive function, then FECTION leaves it alone, and in some cases, even supports it.
Candida is a naturally occurring yeast in the digestive system; along with digestive flora (acidophilis), it helps in the process of digesting food properly. When people take antibiotics, they destroy the friendly flora, thus increasing the percentage of yeast in the digestive tract. When this happens, you have a Candida overgrowth, which is often called a yeast infection.
Over the years, I have worked with numerous schoolteachers. Teachers are exposed to illnesses as much or more than doctors, but at least the doctor can escape from time to time. Teachers are a captive audience for all the little runny noses, coughs and sneezes, with no escape at all. Having a teacher use FECTION is very helpful in the strengthening of their immune system, without an adverse effect upon the digestive tract, or by increasing yeast infections.
Traditional use of the contents: Golden Seal Root and Oregon Grape Root are pro-biotics that influence the glandular and lymphatic systems, and the skin. They also stimulate saliva and bile secretions. Echinacea Root and Astraglias are fungicides and are pro-biotic. They cleanse the lymphatic system and purify the blood. Burdock Root cleanses the lymphatic system and helps build strong tissue. Sage helps fight off infection by strengthening the immune system, cleansing the blood and helping the kidneys and bladder deal with extra toxins. Ginger Root helps speed up the healing process.
