The term “biofilm” refers to a complex community of microbes that organize on surfaces inside the human body. Biofilm is the basis of a variety of sticky coatings, including dental plaque, surfaces inside the aortic valve, on implanted devices such as urinary catheters, and on mucosa over all bodily interface surfaces. It has been linked to a variety of health challenges, and biofilm’s highly advanced protection mechanisms make its microbes resistant to many conventional medical treatments.
Fortunately, an array of natural foods and botanicals can help penetrate the biofilm layer, allowing for disruption and cleansing of the affected area.* We discussed some of these solutions in this webinar, including garlic, propolis, honey, cranberry, Turmeric, Cinnamon, Berberine, and Black Seed Oil.*
