What is Biofilm
A biofilm is a sticky plaque that microorganisms secrete and hide under whenever they are in an environment where they need to feel protected under. It’s impenetrable to the human immune system once it’s formed and even the most potent antibiotic therapies can’t successfully break through a biofilm.
The elements that make up biofilm are mostly proteins and sugars, called lipopolysaccharides. However, these aren’t just normal proteins and sugars as they tend to be quite toxic to the human body, even in small amounts.
Bacteria aren’t the only microorganisms to produce biofilm. Yeast are also known to create it. The interesting fact is, it doesn’t really matter what organism creates biofilm, they all end up hiding out underneath it: Bacteria, yeasts, molds and even viruses.
How Biofilms Form in the Body
In the initial phase of a biofilm formation, an extremely sticky glue-like substance is first secreted which serves as the anchor point, or foundation of the building. It can be regarded as the concrete foundation upon which the house or building is built upon.
This substance is thought to also be responsible for puncturing tiny holes in the intestinal tract which often can lead to leaky gut.
Once this foundation is built, the pathogenic organisms go to work building out the walls of this biofilm barrier until massive colonies are formed.
Biofilm is everywhere bacteria or yeast gather. It’s the slimy substance along the plastic walls of an outdoor hot tub. Have you ever not brushed your teeth for a period of time and felt the plaque or slimy feeling on the surface? That is bacterial biofilm from one or more of the almost 500 different species of bacteria that call your mouth home and work to cause cavities in your teeth.
Disgusting you say?
What if you were told that there are more bacteria cells living in or around your body than the number of human cells that actually make up your body? It’s estimated that we are made up of over 50 trillion plus bacterial cells compared with human cells.
The human intestinal tract is the perfect home for these homeless, free floating planktonic bacterial cells to go to work building out large colonies of cities for protection against the immune system. You see most bacteria aren’t free floating, alone within the body. They group together underneath biofilm and they can actually utilize it for incredible purposes beyond just a shelter.
It’s been discovered that they can also use this biofilm as a sort of WIFI communication network. This is what scientists call quorum sensing and it’s only recently been discovered that this is possible. The network serves to warn other colonies about possible threats as well as where the best food sources may be (sugar).
So What Can Be Done About Biofilm?
It’s believed, not only through this authors personal experience of dealing with chronic symptoms for over 13 years, that biofilm is actually the main reason why a chronic condition stays chronic.
And even why many people relapse back to a sick state, often after feeling better for a while.
The most effective way we’ve discovered for dissolving biofilm and getting the deep clean that is required for a full recovery is something the body naturally produces on its own.
The body produces a lot of different kinds of enzymes, but systemic enzymes are really effective at breaking down that tough biofilm layer and exposing the pathogenic colonies underneath.
However, the body often doesn’t have the manpower to produce enough of these enzymes to do the tough job that is required for biofilm disruption. Especially as it’s been allowed to fully mature in the body.
