PREFACE to the Bulgarian edition
Dysbacteriosis is not yet recognized by the World Health Organization as a disease, but is considered a microbiological concept. However, the recent 50-60 year clinical practice and global observations have shown that this ignorance of intestinal microflora disorders is deeply flawed, and bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract are the key to human health or diseases, especially chronic diseases.
The process of nutrition, which determines the intake of products of plant and animal origin, water and mineral salts, is extremely important for the interaction of the organism with the environment and the maintenance of its vital functions. These products contain proteins, fats and carbohydrates that degrade in the body with energy release, as well as vitamins, minerals, and water, which do not in themselves release energy but are necessary for the normal course of biochemical processes. However, the food in the body is not absorbed by the body directly, but must be broken down into separate components, thus ensuring the recovery of the cells, the maintenance of the individual systems and the body as a whole, the growth of the organism, the synthesis of the enzymes, This whole process of processing and digestion takes place in the gastrointestinal tract. It is the entire “lab” on which all other organs and systems depend – whether they will get full, live, real substances, or they will get poisons. Therefore, often, the effort that man makes to improve his diet remains frustrating – simply because the intestines do not have the right conditions for proper nutritional processing and their full absorption by the body. This makes dysbacteriosis a root cause of a number of chronic diseases and not a consequence of these. Today, most of humanity suffers from dysbacteriosis, often without even suspecting it.
Most chronic diseases associated with disorders of the metabolism and the immune system begin by disturbing the balance of the microflora (microbicinose) of the intestines, although they occur in various ways: dermatitis, diarrhea, neurodermatitis, colitis, allergies, etc. . Most of them are only a consequence of dysbacteriosis, not a cause as long as it was accepted to be considered. This error explains the ineffectiveness and even the lack of perspective on the treatment of a large number of diseases, using traditional methods that treat only the symptoms-not the very cause of the disease-dysbacteriosis.
Intestinal microflora is a typical biosynthesis, i. E. such coexistence, in which all representatives have mutual influence over each other and can not normally exist individually. In the process of evolution, a very successful coexistence (symbiosis) has been formed at two levels of life – the host human organism and the bacteria, the existence of which as a whole provides for both stability and independence from changes in the environment of habitation. Breaking this life-sustaining symbiosis is dangerous for both sides.
In normal bowel function up to about 90% of total bacteria, anaerobic microorganisms (bifidobacteria, lactobacteria), from 1% to 4% are aerobic, mainly Escherichia coli, which are useful for the organism and the rest are conditionally pathogenic microorganisms – symbionses, staphylococci, yeast-like fungi, clostridia, etc.
Useful bacteria perform a variety of functions by taking active part not only in the end-point of the digestive process but also performing a protective function by increasing the body’s immunity with the help of the metabolic products they produce. Bacterial products have a stimulating effect on the human immune system by synthesizing many different vitamins, including all B, C, K, B, B, Pantothenic, Nicotine and Folic Acid vitamins. substances which are essential for the normal functioning of the human body.
In healthy intestines, the microflora performs another function – it prevents the organism from penetrating and multiplying the pathogenic bacteria, pathogenic microflora. Bacteria in the colon represent a natural barrier against the penetration of disease-causing bacteria in the human body (of course, provided it functions normally).
The intestinal microflora produces many important substances for the organism – vitamins, amino acids, hormones, etc. In this way, it not only provides a significant nutritional supplement but also helps to get into the body of substances that may be completely absent in the primary food.
One of the functions of the colon and the living microflora is to make the human organism resistant and less dependent on the conditions of the external environment and the nature of the food.
The imbalance of the intestinal microflora means that the intestines can no longer fully play their role as a primary filter, disrupting the metabolism of bile acids, carbohydrate, water-salt metabolism. In the colon, the processes of decay begin to prevail and for this reason the toxins that are formed are almost unimpeded in the liver and are deposited in it. He can no longer perform his toxin filtering functions and passes it into the blood, and the blood spreads them all over the body, then the kidneys and other organs are polluted. It then affects the walls of the intestine, inflammatory diseases appear – colitis, and stool retention results in difficult defecation. Stressing of the veins and the stagnation of the blood lead to hemorrhoids, and the excessive strain of the right bowel during defecation causes cracks to appear. The prolonged impact of toxins on the same site leads to polyposis and colon cancer. The poisoning of the body with the poisons of its own stools can be manifested differently in different people: in some, it can lead to the retention of water that dissolves the waste in the body, which is why they “swell” while others do the opposite and they “wither” even though they have even higher concentrations of toxic substances in the body. Over time, the process deepens and leads to severe chronic illnesses.
The self-digestion process can be stopped from where it started – from the colon and with the recovery of the beneficial microflora in it. The development and recovery of normal intestinal microflora is impossible without taking appropriate measures. It does not recover by itself in the presence of a permanently acting factor that destroys it. Strong drugs are not a solution because they do not distinguish between pathogenic and useful microflora.
Very often, the process begins in breastfeeding. The sources of dysbacteriosis in children should be sought before birth. Research has shown that when the mother suffers from dysbacteriosis, the newborn infant also lacks 100% normal beneficial microflora in the intestine. This is due to the fact that not only the intestinal mucosa is populated with numerous colonies of microorganisms. The woman’s vagina also has its own microflora, including lactic acid bacteria that play the role of sanitariums and prevent pathogenic microorganisms from penetrating. And not only this.
The point is that the baby is born with sterile intestines. For the first time it encounters the natural microflora of the mother at the time of her birth. It is during the passage through the birth canal the first settlement of the microorganisms in the intestine, taking acidophilic bacteria from the vagina of the mother. The first microflora is supplemented in the body with the mother’s milk (more precisely with colostrum) during the first minutes after his birth.
It is known that during the first 30 minutes after birth, the immune cells in the mother’s colostrum are maximally active, then their activity sharply decreases. This action of nature seems fair because newborns have a highly developed sucking reflex, some babies can suck up continuously for 30-40 minutes. In this way, nature has not only set the need, but has also determined the possibility of getting the baby in the first few minutes after the birth of the maximum active food, the colostrum. During this time, the digestive glands are not yet functioning and the substances of colostrum are directly digested by the blood and form the child’s immune system. It is therefore extremely important that the baby’s breasts begin as soon as possible.
In his book Professor Hachryryan follows the logic of processes in the development and treatment of disturbed microflora based on his long-standing clinical practice, sharing his experience in the treatment of chronic diseases by restoring useful microflora and eliminating dysbacteriosis, including in young children and infants . Especially valuable is his experience with the use of the lactic acid probiotic bacteria Lactobacillus acidophilus, strain 317/402, which produces the acidophilic milk “Nariné”, which is an outstanding worldwide contribution of Armenian science and now to several generations of Armenian scientists in the field of medicine.
The live acidophilic bacteria Lactobacillus acidophilus, strain 317/402, which makes the acidophilic milk “Nariné”, have a high antagonistic activity against a large number of pathogenic microorganisms. Once in the intestine, the lactobacteria of this strain colonize the colon and form the basis for natural normal microflora in the gut of the human, which affects general health:
– Eliminate enzymes in the digestive tract, which help to completely destroy proteins, fats and carbohydrates;
– Produce essential amino acids, including lysine and methionine, which remove the pyridine and other cyclic poisons from the body;
– Vitamins synthesize thiamine, riboflavin, folic acid, etc., stimulate the function of the intestinal microflora to synthesize vitamins by 30-70%;
– synthesize lecithin from milk fats, which has bactericidal properties and protects the liver from increased fat accumulation;
– produce organic acids, increase the absorption of iron, calcium and other microelements.
One of the most important properties of Lactobacillus acidophilus, strain 317/402, which makes the acidophilic milk “Nariné”, is its ability to stimulate the production of? And? Interferon, which play a role in the antiviral and anti-cancer protection of the body. It has radioprotective and adaptive properties, reduces the duration of healing in any illness, eliminates the negative consequences of taking antibiotics. Improvement of metabolism and normalization of gastrointestinal tract functions are the main properties of Lactobacillus acidophilus, strain 317/402, which produces the acidophilic milk “Nariné”, which aids in the cure of patients with a number of chronic diseases (namely, healing rather than improving of their condition), i. dysbacteriosis is the disease that needs to be cured first.

PREFACE by the author
The book includes seven chapters, an introduction and a conclusion.
Chapter 1 describes the main milestones in life formation on Earth and shows the main difference between living and inanimate nature: the constant exchange of substances with the environment. With simple examples from the world of animals and plants, the unity of the laws of nature for each living being is shown, as well as the consequences of non-observance of these laws.
Chapter 2 follows the path of food in the body and the process of digestion in the various parts of the gastrointestinal tract, drawing on the leading role of the colon in completing the process of digestion and assimilation of food products. Describe in detail the symbiotic relationships between the human organism and the living microflora, its role in the synthesis of a number of vitamins (B, C, D, K, etc.), some amino acids and enzymes, as well as its contribution to the formation and maintenance of immunity .
Chapters 3 and 4 are devoted to issues related to pathologies that arise as a result of disturbing the natural balance between pathogenic and healthy microflora in the colon – children’s diets, allergies and allergic dermatoses, iron deficiency anemia, colitis, chronic fatigue syndrome the elderly. In an accessible and comprehensible language, the processes leading to the general poisoning of the human organism with poisons that form in the intestine are described. The ineffectiveness of treating these diseases using traditional methods is explained by ignoring bowel disbacteriosis in patients.
Chapter 5 describes the author’s proposed method of restoring intestinal microflora, which helps the body return to its original balanced and healthy state and restores its self-regulatory systems. Based on numerous examples from his own clinical practice, the author shows the effectiveness of the proposed treatment.
Chapters 6 and 7 are devoted to issues of the social and environmental causes of disbacteriosis and its prophylaxis. It shows its crucial importance for health from the very beginning, even before childbirth, the role of early breastfeeding and breastfeeding of the newborn for the formation of its immune system and the provision of good health. The prophylactic and healing role of the lactic acid product “Nariné” is described in detail. The damage caused by the consumption of synthetic products, including the use of artificial vitamins for the normal functioning of the digestive system, is justified. Consider the basics of healthy and rational nutrition.
In conclusion, it is concluded that dysbacteriosis, which accounts for up to 90% of the population, often even without suspicion, should be cured first because it is the root cause rather than the effect of a large number of chronic diseases, as was accepted to be considered.
