The P2 Story
If you’ve ever had bronchitis or a sinus infection, you know how miserable they are. Imagine having a combination of both for twenty years. That was me, on an endless cycle of antibiotics, which eventually did not work because my body had become resistant to them.
With the use of so many antibiotics, I got yeast infections. To counter the yeast, I ate yogurt with probiotics and took acidophilus supplements, and they worked. I tried essential oils as a natural way to address my sinus issues, and although these natural remedies provided some relief, I was still suffering.
I worked in medical devices and with hospitals for 18 years, and for seven of those years, I worked with Infection Control Practitioners and Microbiologists concerning sterilization methods. Not once did anyone ever talk about good bacteria, only bad. I knew that killing bacteria had consequences, but I just didn’t realize how detrimental those consequences could be.
Because the yogurt and acidophilus helped my yeast, I started thinking about how good bacteria and bad bacteria interact. I knew I didn’t want to use antibiotics anymore, so I wondered how I could get help naturally for my sinus infections. This was 2008, so you can imagine that there was not a lot of information available.
I spent the next two years on bacterial research. One of the most important things I learned is that the most harmful bacteria live in biofilms, superbug bacteria like MRSA, E.coli, Staph and Salmonella. This biofilm is inside us and all around us. It will attach to pretty much anything, and it sits at the microscopic level, so it’s not visible. Biofilm is like a thousand sheets of plastic wrap, impenetrable and virtually impossible to eradicate. The easiest way to identify it is the plaque on your teeth, or an itchy, burning patch of psoriasis or eczema . Your sticky countertop or discolored tile and grout have biofilm, too.
My sinus infections were caused by biofilm! This was my ah-ha moment – I had to find a way to eliminate the biofilm in my nasal cavity.
My research had shown me that there was some promise with soil based probiotics in eliminating biofilm. This discovery prompted me to go to my father, a PhD in Chemistry, Physics and Mechanical Engineering and a Harvard MBA to enlist his help in developing soil based probiotic combinations to eradicate biofilm that we could use in products. I wanted them to be organic, non-GMO, non-allergenic, non-toxic and contain no phthalates, parabens, alcohol or SLS.
In 2010, we set up a manufacturing plant in Illinois, and we began testing our probiotic formulations in livestock - cleaning barns and drinking lines, putting additive into the animals’ water, cleaning teats, spraying probiotics on the animals and eggs in hatcheries, having the farmers walk through baths of our product and even treating ocular cancer in cows.
Just like in our homes, buildings and hospitals, disinfectants and antibacterials are used in the barns and on the animals, creating resistant superbugs, in addition to antibiotics.
But, with the use of our soil based probiotics, the milk got healthier, the animals’ skin got healthier and softer, the animals were friskier, antibiotics disappeared, and feed conversion was better. The harmful germs and viruses were kept between 0-2% because biofilm was eliminated from the barns. They had NEVER been able to achieve these result with disinfectants and antibiotics!
Seeing these results, I started to use the probiotics up my nose and in my ears. With the biofilm removed, my immune system recognized a change, and I no longer had sinus infections (haven’t had one in six years)!
Because of our success in livestock and elimination of my sinus issues, I decided to test a couple of our cleaning products on QVC. They became customer top rated products with all five stars. No cleaners had ever achieved this.
My goal had always been to develop products for consumers, so I confidently launched four product lines for consumers in 2012: home cleaning, pet care, body care and allergy/asthma/sinus.
Today, our full line of P2 Probiotic products have helped people remove biofilm from head to toe and all around. Every one of these P2 products incorporates different proprietary combinations of soil-based probiotics:
