Part 2 of an interview with a microbiologist regarding Gut Bacteria. The first half of this video is a repeat of the techniques used to get the DNA from the different gut bacterias(some of which was shown in Video 1, and is rather technical, but once you understand the idea and concept it makes a ton of sense), and how to separate this bacteria from the other matter that was collected in the human’s stool samples that were used for this test.
Remember, the test was to see if human gut bacteria is changed after people take antibiotics, so Les had to determine what bacteria was in the gut before, during, and after the study.
I started site and the eNewsletter(you can join that below) shortly after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in October of 2008 with severe pancolitis (when my whole colon was inflamed).
For me, it was a very rough start with severe symptoms. Getting bounced from medication to medication was not easy or too helpful. But, I did meet another UC’er, changes several parts of my diet, and of course the rest is history.
