Best probiotic.


Wrongly regarded merely as the body’s sewer, the normal colon is actually buzzing with life activity. Billions of friendly bacteria should be hard at work in the colon. Their job is the final stage of digestion, leaving only what is absolutely of no use to the body to be eliminated. The friendly bacteria, weighing as much as three pounds in the normal colon, comprising more than 400 species, also function to keep ‘bad’ bacteria in check. A harmonious symbiosis between good and bad bacteria is the optimum situation within the human colon, so that no one species proliferates unchecked.

Khem Shahani, PhD was a premier researcher into probiotics for most of his life, and published over 200 scientific papers. Published in Journal of the American Medical Association over 25 articles. He was department head at University of Nebraska for 25 years.

Shahani showed how most bacteria in the environment and in the body are actually beneficial to our health. Bacteria do more good than harm in the everyday world, working much more often as scavengers rather than as pathogens. Bacteria are the janitors of the world, disposing of decaying and diseased cells. Think of a beach with no bacteria. What would happen to all those dead fish that wash up there?

Other essential functions of normal gut probiotics include:

    Inhibition of food-poisoning bacteria
    Suppress tumor growth
    Break down undigested proteins
    Inhibit ankylosing spondylitis

In the colon, the whole key is a balance between the friendlies and the potentially pathological bacteria. Problem is, most of us go through most of our lives with little or no intestinal flora. Our friendly bacteria are constantly being killed off. How? Same culprits as cited in the ALLERGIES:THE THRESHOLD OF REACTIVITY.

    carbonated drinks
    chlorinated water
    fluoridated water
    antibiotics we take
    antibiotics given to the animals whose meat we eat
    Zantac, Tagamet, Prilosec, etc.
    Advil, Tylenol, Excedrin, Motrin
    other prescription and over the counter medications
    white sugar

Shahani shows that without friendly probiotics, the final stage of digestion can’t take place in the colon. Debris rots in there. Opportunists such as Candida albicans start taking over. And food allergies reach epidemic proportions. Whether it’s rotting yoghurt in a blocked colon, a dead coyote in the forest, or infected liver cells in the body of an alcoholic, bacteria are just doing what they do best: cleaning up. Scavengers, not predators. When the bacteria are diagnosed as the cause of the illness, rather than a sign of the illness, the medical approach is to try and kill them. But that’s like killing the garbage men. The garbage remains. Understanding such a simple concept is pivotal in arriving at a holistic outlook toward health.


in the chapter The Post Antibiotic Age, we documented a thorough discussion of the modern consequences of overprescription of antibiotics, especially among children. We learned that antibiotics have only one real purpose: life-threatening, persistent bacterial infections. Taking them for every little sniffle all through childhood has resulted in the appalling situation we see today in the US – where over 99,000 people each year die in hospitals from infections they acquired in the hospital that are resistant to all known antibiotics.

Now in the serious bacterial infection that has persisted and become life threatening, obviously antibiotics may be a life saver. And in the patient who has not abused them all his life, antibiotics may well have a dramatic curative effect. That was their original application, according to Alexander Fleming.

But whenever we do take antibiotics, whether it’s abusive or indicated, we can be sure that we are going to be destroying most flora, most bacteria in the entire body for at least 6 weeks. Maybe longer. Obviously this is going to have a pejorative effect on the digestive tract, especially the colon, where good bacteria are supposed to be thriving.

Shahani recommended the patient take 6 capsules of Total Florabiotics 2 or 3 times per day, if a course of antibiotics is absolutely necessary. The objective was to offset much of the destructive effect the antibiotic has on gut microflora, and help to retain the colon’s normal ecology. A lot of capsules but this really works!

This recommendation comes directly from Dr Shahani himself, as well as all the other legitimate authorities on colon vitality we saw in the Colon chapter.


In any health or detox program, flora balance is vital for success. And yet flora are commonly omitted from most health regimens.

Dr Shahani talks about a study he did of probiotic supplements on the market and found that 80% of them contained only 5% the bacterial counts advertised on their labels. So when he finally created his own formula he made sure the counts were in the billions, and also that they were suspended in a pre-biotic medium that would ensure stability when stored in a cool dark place for up to 2 years. And still were able to proliferate in the human colon once they had bypassed the rest of the digestive tract.

Meeting all these criteria was the crowning achievement of Shahani’s career. That’s what may have made his probiotics so advisable for persistent allergies.

There are four main groups of human probiotics:



The most prolific and versatile of these is L. acidophilus.

In Cultivate Health from Within we read about one of Shahani’s life achievements: DDS-1 lactobacillus acidophilus, which is found only rarely in supplements. This unique strain of acidophilus – DDS-1 – was developed for the following unusual properties:

    Inhibits 27 pathogenic bacteria, including shigella, salmonella, E.coliInhibitsCandida albicans
    Survives stomach acids so that it actually reaches the colon
    Neutralizes nitrates in food
    Normalizes persistent skin eruptions
    Resolves lactose intolerance
    Very resilient in storage – survives up to 2 years
    maintains high counts
    is a human-specific strain, not soil-based
    is antibiotic resistant
    freeze dried, rendering the bacteria dormant
    >non dairy

UAS Labs are one of the oldest and largest producers of probiotics in the US: From their website:

    “Dr. Khem Shahani, one of the most influential probiotic scientists in history, began his landmark research on L. acidophilus at the University of Nebraska in the late 1950s. He discovered a strain of L. acidophilus that showed superior growth, stability, and nutritional potential. The stable qualities allowed the probiotics to pass through the stomach acid and implant in the intestine where it could multiply. Shahani named the strain DDS®-1 for the “Department of Dairy Science Number One” strain. Shahani spent the rest of his career unlocking the strain’s potential for improving overall health, including probiotic digestive health and immune support. During his career, he was a consultant for international agencies such as the World Health Organization.”

Because of pasteurized dairy, most of which is loaded with recombinant bovine growth hormones, as well as antibiotics, many babies develop colic, even if they are breastfed. The mothers often drink pasteurized dairy and pass on this sensitivity to the infant. Shahani discovered that breastfed infants of today have the same gut flora as formula-fed infants of 40 years ago. Why? The mothers themselves are drinking pasteurized hormone-laden milk. Dramatic results can be achieved by substitution of raw dairy and/or probiotics, like Total Florabiotics, both for the mother and the infant.

There is simply no valid detox protocol, no program of detoxification which can have any hope of success without restoring some normal vitality to the colon. It may take a while to overcome years of antibiotic suppression. The colon was the #1 casualty.


It takes at least 2 months to infuse normal amounts of probiotics into a stagnant, devitalized colon. This is why it’s a minimum of 3 capsules 3 times per day. Advanced, severely debilitated cases sometimes double that for the first month. Such a quantum change may introduce normal internal ecology for the first time.

Look at the Testimonials page. However irretrievable you might think you are, there have been worse cases.

If you’re in ‘pretty good health for your age,’a full charge of probiotics can be a quantum holistic immune booster. Why not be in best health for any age?

We’ve never heard of side effects from Total Florabiotics. What harm could come from flooding the colon with friendly bacteria?

This is why many people talk about dramatic surge in colon vitality when they start taking daily Florabiotics for the first time. As the colon is the immune center of the body, its health and motility directly affect every other system, as gastroenterologists tell us.

Dr Shahani found that doubling the regular amount of 9 caps per day for the first month can be extremely effective in jumpstarting a colon that is virtually dead. This protocol he called the Flora Blitz. It means that for one month the patient will be taking 6 caps of Flora 3 times per day. That’s 18 caps per day.

But don’t worry – there are no adverse reactions to probiotics. Virtually unheard of. A sense of relief is more common as the colon is finally coming alive, especially when used in conjunction with Expel.

Then the second month, the majority of patients revert to the normal dosage of 9 caps per day.

See the Feedback section.

If you are one of those patients who are about to give up because you’ve been to all the geniuses and “tried everything” – well you haven’t. Either you’re healthy or you’re sick, but healthy people don’t get sick!
