Anklyosing spondylitis causes inflammation and stiffness in the sacroiliac joints and in the spine. It is a rare rheumatological disorder and is characterized by a posture that is – bent forward. Most cases occur in men 20 – 40 years of age.

If you believe you are suffering from this test for gastrointestinal issues. A stool sample to identify and rule out bacterial, fungal, amoebic, or other parasitic problems; also assess your need for digestive enzymes and test for food allergies. A good testing procedure is Electodermal Screening.

The King’s College Hospital in London have been researching ankylosing spondylitis and have found a link between ankylosing spondylitis and bowel dysbiosis. They also found that most of the patients that were put on a low-starch diet had the progression of their symptoms come to a stop.
Candida albicans that is a naturally occurring fungus in the body can also be involved in damaging the gastrointestinal tract if the Candida is in a state of overgrowth. The Klebsiella bacteria, which is the bacteria found in bowel dysbiosis is allowed into the bloodstream by the presence of the Candida overgrowth. So, an anti-candida, low-fat diet, supplemented with the friendly bacteria of L. bulgaricus and Lactobacillus acidophilus will help to regenerate normal bowel flora.
