Can a person with wheat intolerance take
A person who has a wheat intolerance has a problem with breaking
the protein of the wheat down which is called gluten. The wheat
in Flora Ferm has been pre-digested by the bacteria, hence
you do not have this problem. In many instances once the friendly
bacteria are replaced the gluten intolerance disappears and the
person may find they can now eat wheat products.
How do I tell if Flora Ferm is working?
There is no one answer to this. Every body is different
and will respond differently. The real question is where are you
now getting your nutrients and how are you replacing the good bacteria?
Both are essential to good health. So regardless if your body shows
major changes or subtle ones, the key is to replace bacteria daily
and to saturate the body with nutrients.
How do I introduce Flora Ferm to
People have to realize that most disease is an effect of poor nutrition
and a symptom of an intestinal tract that has been compromised.
The single greatest thing we can do to protect our health is to
replace the bacteria that are responsible for all nutrient absorption,
the making of enzymes and getting rid of the bad bacteria. Add to
this a nutrient saturation formula that provides all the essential
nutrients from organic whole food sources. This daily ritual will
become the most important thing you can do in life. Once people
realize the relationship of bacteria, nutrients and good health,
then it becomes very easy to introduce Flora Ferm to them.
Many people ask if Flora Ferm will
help this problem or that problem; how do I respond?
Keep in mind you are not a Medical Practitioner, hence you can not
make any claims. However the body heals itself and the Doctor takes
the fee. Flora Ferm provides the raw materials the body needs
in order to heal itself. The body is a complex chemical factory
capable of healing itself of any problem as long as it has the raw
materials in the form of whole food nutrients available and as long
as the intestinal tract is healthy with the proper balance of good
and bad bacteria. The secret to combating any problem in the body
is to unleash and assist its potential heal itself. We do this by
providing the whole food nutrients that assist the immune system.
The front line defense and offense of the immune system is the friendly
bacteria. Then having a vast array of nutrients in the form of amino
acids, anti oxidants, vitamins, minerals and enzymes provides the
needed raw materials so the immune system has what it needs to get
the job done.
Where is Flora Ferm manufactured?
Flora Ferm is manufactured in Australia. All ingredients come
from Certified Organic Farms and none have been genetically engineered.
Where does the bacteria come from?
Our bacteria come from fruits and vegetables. Not like many bacteria
that is taken from fecal matter. In addition our bacteria are organic
and have not been genetically modified.
How long will I have to take it for?
It will have to be taken daily for the rest of your life. This is
due to the fact that in modern society the bacteria are being killed
daily through antibiotic therapy, heat and cold in processing foods,
colas, stress, fluorides, chlorides, salt, alcohol to name just
How are the bacteria in Flora Ferm
different than others?
There are 12 bacteria in Flora Ferm. They are organic and
taken from fruits and vegetables. 18 years and 2.5 million dollars
have been invested to evolve these bacteria into a super strain.
They are resistant to many of the things that kill them. The formula
also contains all of their favorite foods so they do not compete
with each other by killing off any good bacteria to protect its
If the bacteria are heat resistant why
do I have to refrigerate the product?
The bacteria in Flora Ferm can stand 55 degrees centigrade
for up to a week. However if you realize it is a food, for ultimate
protection of the nutrients then it should be refrigerated like
any food. If this presents a problem then keep it in a cool and
dark place such as the pantry.
I feel sick after taking Flora Ferm what is happening?
Some people experience what is called a "healing crisis."
Most people are very toxic from the effects of prescription drugs,
bad eating habits and an accumulation of preservatives eaten over
the years. Once the body starts to receive proper nutrients and
the good bacteria start to destroy the bad bacteria, a healing crisis
may follow. This is a good sign. It means the body is de-toxifing
itself. Some people experience aches or pains, some flu-like symptoms,
diarrhea, and a general feeling of not feeling well. This can last
up to a week. If it becomes too uncomfortable then take less of
the Flora Ferm until the healing crisis passes. Also drink
lots of water to assist the elimination process.
When I first took Flora Ferm I felt better but now all my
symptoms have come back even worse than ever. Why is this?
It takes years for the body to decline in health. When you start
on the road to recovery, you walk back up the road of decline. You
do not instantly move to good health. The body has to heal itself
again, and this takes time. Many experience the hit of feeling good
and then as the body goes through its healing crisis you feel bad
for awhile. If you had a particular problem that went away it may
just have gone into dormancy. When the body starts to heal itself,
a battle erupts with the problem trying to survive and this battle
is what is possibly being experienced as a feeling of being "worse
than ever." Follow the advice given in the healing crisis answer.
I am allergic to one of the ingredients
should I still take it?
More than likely, since the ingredients have been predigested by
the bacteria, you should have no problem. However it is prudent
to be careful, so try just a 1/2 teaspoon and see how your body
responds. Most allergies to foods are the result of the improper
balance of bacteria in your intestinal tract. You may find after
using the product that these allergies disappear.
Will Flora Ferm have any effect on
medications I am taking?
If you are on medication it is wise to consult with your doctor
if you are concerned.

much documentation we provide the only real judge is you. Try the
product and then make up your own mind.
