    Default Gut theory : New study says rosacea significantly improved by a probiotic

    Hi, I think that this study is very interesting. I'm just pasting a part of the results here and you can read a longer abstract on pubmed.


    "RESULTS: Eighty-nine percent of the patients with acne, papular-pustular rosacea and seborrhoic dermatitis responded to E. coli Nissle therapy with significant amelioration or complete recovery in contrast to 56% in the control arm (P < 0.01). Accordingly, in the E. coli Nissle treated patients life quality improved significantly (P < 0.01), and adverse events were not recorded. The clinical improvement was associated with a significant increase of IgA levels to normal values in serum as well as suppression of the proinflammatory cytokine IL-8 (P < 0.01 for both parameters)"

    More here.

    I wonder how far can these good results go and if they can last.

    Think it would have to be the probiotic used in the study or any probiotic?!

    The probiotic used is called "Mutaflor". This product contains the bacteria "Escherichia Coli Nissle 1917" more known as E. Coli.
    I don't think any probiotic is effective. E.coli is very special.

    Escherichia Coli Nissle 1917 [...] is one of the best-examined and therapeutically relevant bacterial strains worldwide.
    => https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mutaflor

    In the study, patients received 2 tablets per day for one month. The result for most patients is a reduction or remission of rosacea. And a significant reduction of pathogenic bacteria in the intestine and increasing friendly bacteria. Patients also mean that their quality of life had improved (less fatigue, better mood, better digestion ... etc).

    Again, this study shows the clear link between bowel health and skin diseases such as rosacea.

    I ordered some tablets of "Mutaflor" and I'll test this treatment with a good diet and good supplements to support intestinal health.

    To me it is obvious that the health of the gut is the key to cure rosacea.

    I am willing to try something like this.
    Today after eating something I got few papulas\pustulas on my cheeks. I think there must be some kind of connection between.

    For more than year I had almost none of them, now every few days they go back.

    I only know it is not histamine intollerance, as I yesterday ate whole dark chocolate 81% of cacao and nothing happened.
