High IgG colostrum for diarrhea
Immunoglobulins are responsible for building the immunity in animals and humans.
IgG neutralizes toxins and microbes in the lymph and circulatory system
Lysozyme as found in bovine colostrum aids hydrolysis, boosts the immune system and is capable of destroying bacteria and viruses on contact.
Oligopolysaccharides and glycoconjugates as found in colostrum
Attract and bind to pathogens preventing them from attaching or entering the mucous membranes
It has been previously shown that bovine-derived colostrum preparations can be used in treating toxin mediated intestinal conditions. 10 volunteers challenged orally with a concentrate of enterotoxigenic E. coli, administration of a bovine antibody concentrate obtained by immunizing cows with the corresponding E. coli strains prevented the development of diarrhea in all 10 participants by contrast, 9/10 controls developed diarrhea. In another study, the administration of milk derived antibodies against the enterotoxigenic E. coli colonization factor protected 14/15 subjects from diarrhea, compared to 7/10 subjects given placebo.
Another disease with a similar pathogenesis is pseudomembranous colitis. A study evaluated to effect of immune whey protein, obtained by immunizing cows with C. diﬃcile inactivated toxins and whole-cell killed C. diﬃcile shown as preventing relapse of C. diﬃcile disease. Sixteen patients received the product after standard treatment for a conﬁrmed episode of C. diﬃcile colitis for two weeks. In all but one case, C. diﬃcile toxin disappeared from the stool, and there were no recurrences after a median follow-up of 333 days. (2005).
Colostrum containing IgG (bovine colostrum is effective for e coli and other toxin producing bacteria, in fact colostrum and later lactation mammal milk is what protects an infant against all pathogenic invasions)
GSE or Travelan may be helpful for some for a short time to reduce diarrheal causing bacteria. Grape seed extract (GSE) modulates campylobacter proinﬂammatory response in human intestinal epithelial cell lines and is effective against up to 750 other pathogens. Safe when diluted 512:1 May take with orange juice to hide bitter taste.
Other diarrheal helpers
Coconut water and coconut milk are excellent sources of iron, calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, and manganese and have the same electrolytic balance as your blood. For this reason coconut is often referred to as the “blood remedy.” Coconut water is high in both potassium and sodium, whereas coconut milk is a good source of potassium but much lower in sodium. Drink coconut water or milk within one hour after an episode of diarrhea.
*Milk outperforms Gatorade for electrolyte balance
Eating coconut can often reduce or eliminate diarrhea, whether it is due to IBS or to dietary indiscretion. Overdoing can cause constipation.
Some scientists have looked into the reasons why coconut might be effective against diarrhea. What they have found corroborates the effect of lauric acid on intestinal bacteria, including Clostridium diﬃcile, a species that can cause intractable diarrhea, particularly following antibiotic treatment (Shilling et al, Journal of Medicinal Food, Dec. 2013). E. coli is also susceptible to fatty acids found in coconut, in this case capric and caprylic acids (Marounek et al, Folia Microbiologica, 2003).
Without galactose (a simple milk sugar disaccharide, glucose and lactose) the immune system can not ‘see’. B-galactosidase, also called lactase is important for organisms as a key provider in the production of energy and a source of carbons through the break down of lactose to galactose and glucose.
The lactase enzyme, which has the same function of beta-gal helps digest dairy. Galactosidase treatment is a common ﬁrst stage modiﬁcation of the three major subtypes of Gc protein to GcMAF (a popular and effective immune therapy treatment).
