Background and Overview
The scientific community is just beginning to appreciate the unique, complex, and intimate relationship that exists between the immune, endocrine and digestive systems. Central to this relationship are the healthy protective layers of microbial organisms (microbiomes) covering the external and internal surfaces of our body. These microorganisms are the first to be exposed and react to numerous outside influences, both in a negative and positive way. This relationship is very complex evolving over millions of years and is considered to be “an ancient code for survival in all living organisms.”
If this microbial barrier does not form properly or is disrupted, the body’s first line of defense is compromised, as are the lines of communication among the gastrointestinal tract (GIT), the immune and the endocrine systems. This can result in a number of chronic skin and gastrointestinal manifestations, which include inflammatory bowel disease, food allergies and intolerances.
In the case of food allergies, normal communication is disrupted and the immune system through immunoglobulin E (IgE) responds to the dietary protein as if it is foreign, triggering a histamine release and inflammation. Genetics, antimicrobial or corticosteroid use, adverse reaction to vaccines, intestinal viral, parasitic or bacterial infections, dietary changes, and environmental stress (over-stimulation of the adrenal glands and corticosteroid release) have all been implicated in potentially initiating this response.
Probiotics are formulated to repair the disrupted gut microbiome, but to be successful the microorganisms must be carefully selected after years of research and then cultured in such a way that they are not killed by the stomach acid. They must work synergistically together, protecting the entire gastrointestinal tract.

Please join us on October 18, for a clinically relevant webinar, featuring Erik Nielsen of Denmark, developer of New Beginnings by Olie Naturals.
Olie Naturals, a Canadian Company, has partnered with Erik Nielsen, a global leader in the probiotic world, to bring an exciting product called New Beginnings to North America. Drawing on the wisdom of nature and the ancient art of fermentation, New Beginnings uses a synergistic blend of organic herbs and specially selected strains of probiotics, to create an organic, naturally fermented, herbal probiotic drink.
Probiotics are a conversation, not just a product. This webinar will be a game-changer in how you view probiotics and their importance in improving outcomes in the clinic.
