Biofilm: a sticky matrix produced by microorganisms; accumulated cellular waste that is acidic in nature; biofilms adhere to tissues and cells and interfere with metabolism and organ function.

Waste accumulation and infestation by fungal yeast sets the stage for biofilm formatio, as well as provides a friendly environment for growth of fungi and production of tmycotoxins. See Mold & Fungus Protocol.

Overview

Biofilm is a polymeric slime composed of waste proteins and polysaccharides that provide a breeding ground and shelter for pathogenic microorganisms.

Low-grade inflammation comes with biofilm formation and accumulation.  Biofilms limit blood and lymphatic circulation and is a side-term effect of pre-diabetes, meaning, blood sugar levels over 90.

People who are fragile and environmentally challenged suffer from biofilm controlled environments. Once biofilms form, restoration of the terrain becomes challenging because of the self-perpetuating nature of biofilm.

Biofilms formation is driven by acidification of the body’s terrain, as well as proliferation and growth of pathogenic organisms.

A biofilm may also be considered a hydrogel, which is a complex polymer that contains many times its dry weight in water. Biofilms are not just bacterial slime layers but biological systems; the bacteria organize themselves into a coordinated, functional community.

Biofilms can attach to a surface such as a tooth, rock, or surface, and may include a single species or a diverse group of microorganisms. The biofilm bacteria can share nutrients and are sheltered from harmful factors in the environment, such as desiccation, antibiotics, and a host body’s immune system.

See Autoimmune Attack Cycle and Sugar/Alcohol Cycle to better understand the nature biofilms and biofilm environments.

Suggestions

Here are three key elements for dealing with biofilm:

  1. Change your lifestyle and your diet.
  2. Embrace Young Again Club Protocols.
  3. Ask for help and be open to new ideas.
