There has been lots of research into gut microbiome and probiotics lately. Is it possible to restore gut microbes? Ie, if someone has taken antibiotics that knock out a particular strain of gut bacteria, how would you go about restoring a full spectrum of microbes? There are only so many specific strains of bacteria in a given product (yogurt, kefir, kombucha, probiotics). I assume there are many more strains of bacteria that occur naturally in a healthy patient, for example, someone that has had a natural birth and little to no antibiotic treatment.
