Biofilm Treatment: The connection between dental and systemic health

 In Blog, Health, Research

Bio-Botanical Research, Inc. was founded in response to healthcare practitioners’ needs to effectively address opportunistic infections naturally.  The company began in 1989, when a physician sent Great Smokies Diagnostic Labs (now Genova) a sample of Biocidin®, and had it tested for sensitivity against bacteria and yeast species. In more than 250,000 tests, Biocidin® was found to be “the most powerful inhibitor of pathogenic organisms”, and was “equal or more effective than traditional therapies”. The lab began to refer physicians, and soon, many practitioners across the country were reporting outstanding clinical results.

The current line of 10 products include professional grade, broad-spectrum, anti-pathogenic, botanical nutritional support formulations that target both acute and chronic intestinal dysbiosis and systemic infections.

Biocidin® has been laboratory tested and clinically verified for effectiveness. Research and trials include multi-pathogen biofilms, Lyme, sIgA modulation, SIBO, GI pathogens, and microbiome and periodontal health.  Current trials and research are underway.

Specific to biofilms, research completed with Binghamton University shows Biocidin® is 99% effective at dissolving and breaking up Biofilms, and eliminating the pathogens contained within.  With the ongoing and emerging field of biofilm treatment, the connection between dental and systemic health is now more than ever an important topic to overall health.

Biofilm Treatment: The connection between dental and systemic health FULL TRANSCRIPT

Dr. Terry Wahls: Welcome, and give me a quick overview of who you are and tell us a little bit about Biocidin.

Rachel Fresco: So Biocidin is a broad spectrum botanical combination. So it has herbs from a lot of different categories, herbs that are high in berberine, herbs that have plant tannins, herbs that are immune modulators, things that support the liver, things that are anti inflammatory, and essential oils that are also very strongly antimicrobial. Also things that are very common like garlic, and things like that. Some of the herbs in the formula are a little less well known, like the [inaudible 00:00:41]sematory, which is an antiparasitic, and the galbanum, which is similar to the [inaudible 00:00:47], but it comes from the Arabian Peninsula. It’s most similar to frankincense, but that one’s really useful as an antiparasitic and antimicrobial, as well.

Rachel Fresco: In the Bible they said that they used that one to ward off snakes and bad insects. So, it’s an old well known herb itself. And so doctors use Biocidin for any type of any microbial support, whether it’s in the oral cavity, whether it’s in the GI tract, or systemically. So, that would include why we put it in the Biocidin toothpaste, the dental-cidin, for the oral microbiome, why we have it in the liquid and capsule forms for the gut. And then the lysosomal form is what’s used mostly in Lyme disease, or in infections that are outside the GI tract.

Dr. Terry Wahls: Okay. Why don’t we step back from [inaudible 00:01:44] and let our audience know who you are, and your qualifications, and how you got so passionate about all of this.

Rachel Fresco: Okay. So, Rachel Fresco, and founder and CEO Bio-Botanical Research. I started out as an acupuncturist over 30 years ago, and at the time that I got out of acupuncture school, I was working at a Chinese herb company, helping the doctors there understand the use of the formulas. And some of those doctors were really struggling with patients with opportunistic infections, and I happened to have been working with some herb formulas in veterinary medicine, because I did veterinary acupuncture. I have a background as a horse person.

Rachel Fresco: And so we had been treating dogs, and horses, and cattle that had really difficult to treat infections with these herbs, and it was working. So I sent some of these herb formulas to these doctors in San Francisco, who were dealing with these AIDS patients with opportunistic infections, and diarrheal diseases. And low and behold, these herbs were helping. And patients diarrhea stopped, and they felt better. And one of those doctors sent the sample of the herbs to Great Smokies Diagnostic Labs, which is now Genova Diagnostics.

Rachel Fresco: So, I get a phone call out of the blue when I’m at the company working, and it was Martin Lee, the director of Great Smokies and he’s like, “I don’t know who you are or what this is, but it kills everything.” I’ll always remember that conversation, be cause I’m like, “Who is this rude man?” “I’m Rachel.” But he said, “We want to put your herb formula on our panel.” And I didn’t even know what that meant, the comprehensive digestive stool analysis. So he put it on there, and over a six year period, over 200,000 patient samples were run through that lab, and it came out as the most highly sensitive agent, which meant that when they were comparing it to other anti microbials, whether they were pharmaceutical or natural, that it was the best one at killing those things off.

Rachel Fresco: So basically thousands of doctors heard about it and started calling me up and going, “How do we get this herb formula?” So I had to start a company to deal with that, and that was never my intention. I thought I was going to get my acupuncture license and go into private practice, but that didn’t happen. So what I ended up doing was really learning functional medicine, and I ended up going to all the conferences where integrative doctors who do a lot of lab testing go, and over a 30 year period, really learning about this type of medicine, which I think that the integrative and functional approach is the only real medicine that we should be practicing.

Rachel Fresco: And so, I tried to develop things to go along with the Biocidin that would really pinpoint areas that needed work, and that maybe weren’t covered by other products. So it was never my idea, “I want to have a bunch of different vitamins and things.” Because that’s not really my interest. My interest was making clinically effective things that are really specific. And so, that’s where I kind of expanded the line to include things for binding toxins, and supporting the gut microbiome, and as I said, the dental line. And now we have a nasal wash for the nasal cavity, and we’re coming out with a few other things too, as well.

Dr. Terry Wahls: Well, let’s talk a little bit about the gut microbiome and the mouth microbiome. The research just continues to explode as to how important the microbiome is, for us to get the proper microbial metabolites into our bloodstream, so we can run the proper biochemistry both in the mouth microbiome and in the gut microbiome. How do your products help us get a healthier microbiome mix?

Rachel Fresco: Well, it’s kind of like if you’ve ever seen a field that’s been plowed. A field that’s been plowed, first of all, is killing the normal soil micro organisms that don’t like to be exposed to sun and air. And also what’s the first thing that comes up? Weed, right? Not the good plants, and it’s kind of like that in our microbiome. Our current western diet, and lifestyle, and medications and other things tend to wipe out the good microbes and leave us more susceptible to getting yeast and bacterial infections, viruses, parasites, and so forth. And then when you combine that with things like GMO foods that are designed to have heavy amounts of lysophosphatidate, or Roundup sprayed on them, those things are very damaging to the gut lining.

Rachel Fresco: And of course, when you’re born and you’re delivered by C-section instead of a vaginal birth, you’re not getting the normal flora that you would get. So basically there’s just a compounded reason why people’s diversity and number of beneficial organisms are not what they used to be. And that leaves us more to susceptible to bacteria and yeast, and to having leaky gut, and having inflammation because of that, to having less neurotransmitters, and more anxiety and depression, and more autism. All of these things are all related to our own ecology being out of balance, just as our planetary ecology is out of balance, it’s kind of a microcosm, macrocosm kind of thing.

Dr. Terry Wahls: So there’s a lot of evidence that our diet and lifestyle are fertilizing these disease promoting mixtures. I know you’ve spent a lot of time taking very thoughtful approaches, in terms of your herbs, to help us reduce the burden of these disease promoting microbes. Can you speak any more specifically as to why the Biocidin is more effective than perhaps the conventional use of antibiotics, to get a better control of these microbiome imbalances?

Rachel Fresco: Well as you know, certain antibiotics only target certain classes of organisms. So, when you’re dealing with a combination of yeast, bacteria, and maybe parasites, and you’ve got a biofilm, which is a key point here. A lot of times antibiotics just aren’t cutting it, number one, or it’s like throwing the baby out with the bath water. It’s hurting your normal flora, or they are hepatotoxic. So, I like to think of antibiotics as something that we would use when we’ve tried the natural agents, and haven’t gotten somewhere. But the good news is that, what the feedback that we get from doctors using Biocidin as nutritional support, is that some doctors have told me they’ve been able to replace having to use regular antibiotics, and antifungal drugs in their practice if they use this as a first line and you could intervene early enough in the process where you’re not at danger.

Rachel Fresco: Of course you would never not give somebody antibiotics who’s got an infection that’s life threatening. But for somebody who’s got chronic gut issues, it’s probably a good idea to start with the natural supplements, and go with the diet, and take a longer approach to trying to heal it. Two to three months is often a beginning stage to really make progress, and maybe your lab results are then going to show, hey, my microbiome has improved, these pathogens are down, and you can decide what to do at that point. So, the herbs do help the antibiotics in some ways too, because if you do have to be on antibiotics, like some Lyme patients are on antibiotics and they need to do that, or they want to do that, and that’s okay.

Rachel Fresco: At least the herbal medicine in many cases, helps the antibiotic to work better by breaking the biofilm’s and stopping what’s called the efflux pump that causes antibiotic resistance. So when I did my research on a lot of the herbs in the formula, if you look in [Pub Med 00:09:56] under efflux pump mechanism, what that is is like, if you can imagine you’ve got your bacteria here and then the antibiotics are here, and the bacteria senses those antibiotics and changes its gene expression, and turns on this little pump and just shoot them out. So, that means you’d have to use a lot more antibiotics to make a difference in this resistant type of condition.

Rachel Fresco: But, luckily, for some reason, maybe that’s what nature created for us, these herbs shut down that efflux pump, so you could use less of the drugs or other natural anti-microbials, and they’ll probably work better. So, I think that they’re a good cohort to any type of antimicrobial therapy, no matter what you’re using.

Dr. Terry Wahls: And so, thinking of the individuals with small intestinal bacterial overgrowth, SIBO, I don’t know how you pronounce that. Sounds like this would be a very helpful approach for someone who’s having struggled with symptoms of SIBO. Would that be correct?

Rachel Fresco: Yeah, we have seen really good results. We did a small clinical trial with that, and we tried experimenting with, well what if we gave the patients just the Biocidin and the [GI-detox 00:00:11:10]. GI-detox is the binder that mops everything up when you’re killing it off with Biocidin, so that you don’t get the die off reaction. And that’s really important no matter what you’re treating, you have to combine those toxins. But anyway, we didn’t change people’s diet, we didn’t give them anything else, just those two things, and we measured their breath test after eight weeks, and we found that their improvement was over 50% in their lab result. But in their feeling of their bloating, of their fatigue, of their symptoms, they were 70 to 100% better with the-

Dr. Terry Wahls: Well that’s impressive-

Rachel Fresco: Very encouraging, and then we added in the [Aloevirex 00:11:45], which is another anti-microbial botanical supplement support. And the good thing about olive leaf extract, is it seems to have an affinity for methane producing bacteria. So sometimes in the SIBO it’s easier to get rid of the hydrogen, right? But the methane ones are harder to treat. So by combining the Biocidin with the Aloevirex, and the GI-detox, and changing people’s diet, then you saw the lab test really picking up, and doing even better. There’s nothing that’s 100% all the time, but I think that what we saw was the same as that report from Johns Hopkins, on the herbs and [rifaximin 00:12:24], that they were equally or more effective most of the time. So, if-

Dr. Terry Wahls: Well definitely better than taking [rifaximin 00:00:12:30].

Rachel Fresco: Yeah, so I think that if you have SIBO, that it’s worth a try in using this approach with your integrative practitioner, or naturopath and seeing what kind of results you get. I think the good news about these kind of things is you can go six weeks, eight weeks on this, and at least it’s not going to hurt you. You have a good chance that you’re going to see a benefit, and that you’re going to feel better, and it’s going to help you, and at least it’s doing no harm. So, I think that’s the place to start.

Dr. Terry Wahls: Let’s talk a little bit about oral health. I have a increasing recognition that the evidence that the health of our gum tissue, our gingiva, is a sign into the health of the body, and that those individuals who have gum infection, gum inflammation, periodontal disease, all those words, same thing. Have more autoimmune problems, more heart disease, more diabetes, more dementia, more neuro degeneration, and there’s more evidence that nitric oxide production depends on our oral microbiome being healthy, and a lot of these oral mouth washers are wrecking our mouth microbiome. So, what do you have in your products that would help address the gingivitis, the gum disease, without harming the microbiome that we need so it can make nitric oxide?

Rachel Fresco: So I put the Biocidin in this toothpaste.

Dr. Terry Wahls: Yes. Tell us about that.

Rachel Fresco: So, it’s just a really nice, natural toothpaste. The Biocidin is breaking those biofilm’s, and killing the pathogens. And then we have, I don’t have it here, but we have a matching oral care solution. It’s like a little rinse, and it’s lysosomal Biocidin with added [corsiton 00:14:36] for inflammation, co-Q10 for the gums, as well as [murr 00:14:41] and clove, that are additionally good oral ingredients. And so, the combination of those two in our before and after studies, has reduced the pathogen load in the mouth hugely, like from 35 organisms in a root canal cavitation, down to three normal ones in two months. So it’s really exciting. So we’re doing a double blind placebo controlled trial now at a university on a larger scale, for that reason. I think it’s super exciting. I think that by accident I may have created the major disruptor to the oral care industry, because I’ve never seen anything, literally the dentists are saying that the pocket depth when you measure it, is coming down 50% in six weeks, eight weeks. I mean-

Dr. Terry Wahls: That is marvelous [crosstalk 00:15:30].

Rachel Fresco: People that [crosstalk 00:15:32].

Dr. Terry Wahls: Let’s back up for a moment Rachel, so we have to do a little translation for our listeners. So pocket depth is a way that your dental hygienist and your dentist measures the gum tissue, as it comes up next to your teeth. And the deeper that pocket depth, the more inflammation, the more infection, the more irritation in your gum tissue, the more gum disease, the more periodontal disease, and the higher rates of these autoimmune terrible consequences of the gum disease. And so your dentist is going to be very excited if that pocket depth number gets less, and less, and less. If you’ve got, I think it’s four millimeters is the really bad numbers. So you want to be less, three, two, one, preferably in that kind of very trivial. And so what Rachel is telling us is that, the Biocidin toothpaste, just brushing your teeth with that helps heal the gum tissue. So when the dentist is measuring your depth, they’ll come back and say, “Oh my God, what happened? Your mouth is in such better shape.”

Rachel Fresco: Exactly. So I think [crosstalk 00:16:45].

Dr. Terry Wahls: Do people, would they end up using this toothpaste now, forever? Or is this something you do for a couple months, and then you go back to whatever it was that you were doing before? What’s the usual approach here?

Rachel Fresco: I just use this as my daily toothpaste. I’ve been using it for over a year. The oral rinse is the one that’s really more of a treatment, whereas the toothpaste is just a nice protection, and maintenance, and it’s definitely going to make a difference. But the oral rinse is the one that’s really getting in there as a medication for your gums. So I would say, use the oral rinse until your dentist says, “You’re doing good.” And then maybe only use it as a maintenance after that, maybe once or twice a week swish with it. I mean, it doesn’t hurt to swish with it everyday once, but if you have a problem, I would do it twice a day for at least two months, something like that.

Dr. Terry Wahls: And the toothpaste, that’s a big stripe on your toothbrush, or just a dot, or just a smear?

Rachel Fresco: Well no, I use a pea sized amount on my Sonicare electric toothbrush.

Dr. Terry Wahls: And a lot of our conventional toothpaste that has fluoride in it, of course we brush our teeth and we’re told to spit that out because it’s so toxic and bad for us. Your toothpaste, does that stuff you have to spit out? Or what’s the deal there?

Rachel Fresco: Well it doesn’t have fluoride. It doesn’t have any bad ingredients like sodium lauryl sulfate, which is like garage floor de greaser. I can’t believe some of the so called natural toothpaste in the health food store, have that in there.

Dr. Terry Wahls: What is this ingredient that we don’t want?

Rachel Fresco: Sodium lauryl sulfate.

Dr. Terry Wahls: And what is that? Help our listeners know [crosstalk 00:18:29].

Rachel Fresco: And you can find it in soaps, and shampoos and things. If you see that ingredient, run the other way. Because if you look it up on the environmental working group website, everybody should know about ewg.org, because you can type in any cosmetic or any product, and you can see how safe or dangerous it is according to the ingredients in there. Some are carcinogenic. In the US we don’t have the same laws in Europe about cosmetic products, and about toxins in them. So, when I put this toothpaste together, of course I wasn’t going to put anything in there that I wouldn’t want to use myself. And anybody who knows me, I’m the queen of natural products. I like everything to be organic, and completely free of bad ingredients. And so that’s how I made this toothpaste.

Rachel Fresco: And so for that reason, I think it’s safe to use everyday. People like it, it tastes good. Children like it. You don’t need very much. That one bottle last me about a month and a half to two months, usually. You don’t need a lot. And the thing that you really notice, which I’m really looking forward to getting your feedback on Terry, once you’ve been using this, at the end of the day you know how you normally, your teeth kind of feel dirty? You’re like, “Oh I need to brush, get that film-“

Dr. Terry Wahls: Yes.

Rachel Fresco: You just don’t get that. You actually are like, “Wow, my teeth.” You wake up in the morning and instead of being birdcage mouth and all, “Oh.” You’re like, “Wow, I actually am kiss-ably fresh.” We finally actually produced something that- [crosstalk 00:19:57].

Dr. Terry Wahls: You call that kiss-ably fresh?

Rachel Fresco: Yeah, that’s what my dog says to me every morning [crosstalk 00:20:02].

Dr. Terry Wahls: Oh, that’s very cute. That’s very cute.

Rachel Fresco: So I think that the toothpaste is an easy one for people to do to help create [inaudible 00:20:13] in the mouth.

Dr. Terry Wahls: I’ll give you another hint that I’d love to have you figure out, is the [emu 00:20:19] oil people from Walkabout. I love getting the extra K2 in oral care, and so I’ll give you a little hint. It’d be fun for you to get some emu oil into your toothpaste, just for the additional vitamin K, too. So if you’re thinking about reformulating, let me pitch that as an additional add on for you.

Rachel Fresco: I’ve gotten great success with emu oil on other things, so I had never thought about putting it in there, but I’ve used it topically, like on the horses when you get a bad [crosstalk 00:20:55]. And then it’ll stop them from scarring. It’s just great.

Dr. Terry Wahls: It is, I’m very impressed, it is a very healing thing. So I’m using that more and more in my clinical practice as well. And so, if our listeners hearing this chat are like, “Wow, I want to check out these Biocidin products.” Is this something that the public could just by themselves? Or do they have to get this strictly through their healthcare practitioner? What kind of guidance do we have there?

Rachel Fresco: Yeah, so I’d say you could certainly get our products at our website at Biocidin.com, they’re also available on other doctors’ websites, and even we’re going to actually set up our own store on Amazon. In the past, I haven’t been happy with people putting their products on Amazon because we found people were putting products that were out of date, or so I think in order to make sure that people do buy on Amazon, they get good product, they should get it from our own store. So we’re setting that up.

Dr. Terry Wahls: Yes, yep.

Rachel Fresco: But now I’d say go to Biocidin.com, or go to your website if you’re carrying these things. Anybody could do our little bio clear kit. It’s a three part kit. You get the Biocidin, you get the pro flora, which is the probiotic, the flora based probiotic with the adding [corsiton 00:22:17], and you get the GI-detox to pull out toxins. That one month kit is a good cleanse for anybody who just wants to do a basic cleanse. You can get the toothpaste and the oral care solution, they’re both called Dental-Cidin, on the website. And anybody can use these things, [crosstalk 00:22:32] have to worry is that if you have Lyme, or if you have a severe condition where you’re needing a doctor’s care, then please have your health professional contact us and we will work with them to formulate your protocol, and make sure that they’re using it correctly in your case. So I’d say-

Dr. Terry Wahls: Sound advice.

Rachel Fresco: Yeah, work with your practitioner if you feel that you have a serious condition.

Dr. Terry Wahls: And I think that’s very sound advice, because you don’t want to end up with the [Hercs Meyer 00:23:04] where you’re having die off, increased symptoms, and you’re alarmed by what’s going on. So yes, reach out to Biocidin, it’d be really, very helpful for you. Do you have some-

Rachel Fresco: [inaudible 00:23:21] too, we have a list of doctors who will even do online consult, or phone consults if you don’t have [inaudible 00:23:29] practitioner, or a naturopath, or you live in a part of the country where there’s just nobody around of that ilk, then we can help you find somebody who can do that online to help you.

Dr. Terry Wahls: Do you have anything new and exciting coming up in the next year, that you want to give us a little glimpse about?

Rachel Fresco: So I just put together this nasal spray, and this is really neat. This is a Biocidin nasal spray, and it’ll be available in about a month. This one, the reason I put this together was many, many people with [inaudible 00:24:02] diseases, Lyme disease, chronic fatigue. A lot of these things are caused by mold or bacterial infections that could be hiding out in the sinuses. So when you’ve been ill chronically, what I would have you do if you were my patient, is I would have you do everything. I would have you do the nasal spray a couple times a day. Do the oral care products, do the gut protocol, get your diet in good shape, get your environment in your home, and your products that are around you, get free of toxins.

Rachel Fresco: Take the straws off the camel’s back, and that way while you’re cleansing, so that you can really see progress quickly. I’ll see people who within even two to three weeks are like, “Wow, I have more energy than I’ve had in 10 years.” Just from doing these basic things. So I think that the nasal spray is really exciting. I have a new metabolism formula coming out, and it’s really for people who are like me, who I had [inaudible 00:25:06] injury, and so I got that whole chronic inflammatory kind of thing. So people like that sometimes have a metabolism [inaudible 00:25:14] don’t lose weight easily, don’t function easily.

Rachel Fresco: So I put together a lysosomal based metabolism formula that kind of speeds up our metabolic process a little bit without being like, drinking some over the counter caffeine drink or something, something that actually supports our kidneys and adrenals, and helps to boost our metabolism. That’s coming out in about six to eight weeks, [Meta-Boost 00:25:40] and it’s a lysosomal formula. And then we have some other new probiotic products coming. We have a probiotic mouthwash, which I’m totally stoked about-

Dr. Terry Wahls: Exciting.

Rachel Fresco: I know. So then as you’re using the Biocidin to kill off those pathogens, and break the biofilm’s, and get rid of the plaque and all of that, now you can come in after that and use a probiotic, that’ll even protect your mouth further.

Dr. Terry Wahls: And do you have a probiotic that’ll be for the nose and sinuses as well?

Rachel Fresco: We’re thinking about actually adding those products to this nasal spray that works well. We have to test it and make sure that it’s viable. So we’re kind of in the process-

Dr. Terry Wahls: That will be incredibly valuable. So, I look forward to hearing that, because I think that’ll be key to getting the sinuses re constituted, is to chase them with a probiotic that can help rebalance the ecology in our nasal passages.

Rachel Fresco: I think so. I’m all about that. So that’s, [inaudible 00:26:41].

Dr. Terry Wahls: So you’re coming to join us. You’ll be with us at the seminar. We’re very excited about that.

Rachel Fresco: I’m really excited to be there, and to meet your tribe. It sounds like you’ve got a very well educated group of followers.

Dr. Terry Wahls: We have a very committed tribe. We have a growing group of practitioners that are coming as well. We’re now doing virtual trainings as well. So we’re trying to figure out how to train my health professionals in person, as well as virtually, so we could increase the accessibility, because we have a tribe coming from all over the globe. Last year we had seven different countries there. I don’t know how many we’re going to have this year, but it’ll be fun. It’ll be exciting. We’re really, I’m so glad that you’re coming, and that you’re joining our community.

Rachel Fresco: Thank you so much. I’m looking forward to being there, and it was great seeing you at [A4M 00:27:44] last December, and I look forward to seeing you this summer.

Dr. Terry Wahls: That sounds wonderful. Thank you so much, Rachel.

Rachel Fresco: Thank you.
