Bacillus subtilis Story
At least five websites (rense.com; morrigandunn.blogspot.com; bodybiotics.com; afibbers.org; icmag.com) shared the same Bacillus subtilis Story as follows:
Dr. Rothschild backed up his point by telling us the story of the discovery of the Bacillus subtilis. This bacterial microorganism is commonly found in the environment rather than in humans, yet is well known by modern science to be very friendly to the human system. It can promote dramatic healing benefits in humans, even though it isn't one of the native microbes that usually inhabit the human body. According to Dr. Rothschild, the story of Bacillus subtilis goes like this:
The bacillus subtilis was discovered by the Nazi German medical corps in 1941, toward the end of their African campaign. At the time, the German military victory was at its height. But the German high command became genuinely alarmed when hundreds upon hundreds of soldiers in North Africa suddenly began dying every week. Oddly, the Nazi soldiers weren't dying because of British General Montgomery's retaliatory bombs and shrapnel, but instead, they were dying of uncontrollable dysentery.
Of course, the Germans were aware that dysentery resulted from pathogenic (i.e., disease-causing) bacteria from local food and water sources. But in those days, there were no antibiotics. Sulfur was already on the market, but only in a topical non-ingestible form. So with no medication available with which to stop the plague of dysentery, the Nazis quickly began looking for other means to help their dying soldiers.
The German high command immediately sent out a contingent of scientists, physicians, chemists, biochemists, bacteriologists, and other experts to help solve the problem. With typical German circumspection, these top experts reasoned that there must be a natural way to counteract the deadly bacteria causing dysentery because, if there weren't, the millions of Arabs living in the region would have been dead long ago.
Therefore, the Germans' first step was to closely scrutinize the native Arabs and see whether or not they were affected by dysentery. What they discovered was that the Arabs also caught dysentery. Still, at the first sign of diarrhea, the Arabs would do something quite incredible: They would immediately begin following around a horse or camel until it would drop its dung. Then, the affected Arab would pick up the warm dung droppings and quickly gulp them down! This strange procedure effectively eliminated dysentery almost overnight.
Once the good hygienic Germans finally recovered from the shock of seeing the Arab natives gulping down warm camel dung, they quickly realized that there must be something in the waste that somehow counteracted the harmful bacteria that caused dysentery. They questioned the Arabs, who told them they had no idea why it worked but that their fathers had always done so, as had their forefathers, and it had always worked. The only caveat was that the camel or horse dung had to ingest while still warm and fresh because it did not affect dysentery if eaten cold.
So the Nazis began carefully examining fresh camel and horse dung. They discovered that it was teeming with an effective bacterial microorganism which later came to be called Bacillus subtilis. This bacteria, it turned out, is so strong that it practically cannibalizes all harmful microorganisms in the human body --- particularly pathogenic bacteria like the virulent strain which was causing dysentery in the German troops.
Within a short time, the Nazis began producing hundreds and thousands of gallons of active Bacillus subtilis cultures for their troops to ingest. And bingo, no more dysentery! Soon afterward, the Germans discovered how the Bacillus subtilis cultures could be dried and placed into easily ingestible capsules. From that time forward, the resourceful Germans had no more problems with losing troops from dysentery.
Still Benefiting Health-Savvy Individuals
For many years afterward, cultures of Bacillus subtilis were sold worldwide as a medicinal product (sold in the U.S. and Mexico, for example, under the brand name Bacti-Subtil), rapidly becoming the world's leading treatment for dysentery and other intestinal problems. Unfortunately for Americans, this popular bacterial supplement that cures intestinal infections began losing favor in the late 1950s and 1960s. The advent of synthetic antibiotics that the giant pharmaceutical companies called "wonder drugs" instead. Even the antibiotics cost five times as much as Bacti-Subtil and took three times longer to accomplish the same results.
Nonetheless, Bacillus subtilis remains one of the most potent and beneficial of all health-promoting and immune-stimulating bacteria. Microbiologist J. Harmann's clinical studies (Immunostimulation by B. subtilis preparations) report the cell wall components of ingested B. subtilis can activate nearly all systems of the human immune defense. They can start at least three specific antibodies (IgM, IgG, and IgA secretion), which are highly effective against many harmful viruses, fungi, and bacterial pathogens that regularly attempt to invade and infect the human system.
Bacillus subtilis is still used widely today in Germany, France, and Israel. The health-savvy public more highly esteems safe, effective all-natural therapeutic products than the more expensive synthetic drugs espoused by the orthodox medical establishment with all of their dangerous side effects.
In short, the incredible Bacillus subtilis, commonly found in the outside environment rather than in the human intestinal system, has continued to benefit humanity ever since its unusual discovery by the Germans in 1941. What's more, it is only one small example of the multitude of "friendly" microorganisms which can create tremendous benefits for humans when ingested, even though they are not necessarily "native" microorganisms to the human body.

Case-1, when I mentioned Bacillus subtilis story with my coworker, it didn't suppress her at all. She said: "my mom made us drink horse poop when we got diarrhea in our childhood. The stuff can stop our diarrhea right away". She came from Guatemala where is far away from Africa. The ancients from far different areas had the same treatment for diarrhea, which they had learned from daily survival experiences.
Case-2, four people from the same family got acute watery diarrhea in the same week, grandson seven years old, father forty, grandparents seventy. The mild had watery diarrhea six times a day; the severe had more than ten times a day. Everyone took a capsule of Bacillus subtilis (ordered from swansonvitamins.com) twice a day for 1-2 days, and diarrhea stopped soon after.
Case-3, a doctor who met us on a Machu Picchu trip in Peru, got acute diarrhea after eating raw fish at lunch. He had diarrhea all night long more than 15 times. He only took two capsules of Bacillus subtilis that I got from China, and his diarrhea stopped in an hour. Afterward, he continued his trip with us without any problem.
