Targeted probiotics for specific health issues are available at the Lotus Blossom Clinic, in Fort Myers. Based on research funded by the National Institutes of Health massive Human Microbiome Project, which began in 2008, these products can improve gut health, reduce weight, improve allergies and urinary tract health by changing the landscape of the intestinal flora.

Based on research from the project, “We defined specific bacterial strains and now carry a customized weight-loss probiotic,” says David Martin, an acupuncture physician with the clinic. “One patient has lost a stubborn 60 pounds.”

One of the first practices in our area to embrace these targeted probiotic therapies, they add that it’s an important new tool to manage our health.

Cost: $27 and up. Location: 6710 Winkler Rd., Ste. 2. For more information or a free consultation, call 239-277-1399, email Deb@LotusBlossomClinic.com or visit LotusBlossomClinic.com.
