A bowel nosode, potentised by Bach
Eubacteria - Gracilicutes (Gram negative bacteria) - proteobacteria- Enterobacteriales, Enterobacteriacea-(enterobacter -E.cloacae and citrobacter - C.freundii)
Julian identifies as consisiting of the three; Bacillus asiaticus (now called Hafnia alvei), Bacillus Cloace (now known as Enterobacter Cloacae), Bacillus freundii (now known as Citrobacter freundii
Named as was the 7th non lactose fermenting type of bacillus seen in the laboratory. (9 cases - J Paterson). Julian identifies as consisiting of the three; Bacillus asiaticus (now called Hafnia alvei), Bacillus cloace (now known as EnterobactercCloacae), Bacillus freundii (now known as Citrobacter freundii) .
See Vermeulen, Citrobacter freundii - resembles E Coli and biochemically like Salmonella. normal bowel flora, found in soil, water, sewerage, somm foodstuffs, concentrates cadmium and assoc infections of trout and with opportunistic infections in immunocompromised patients: diarrhoea, septicaemia, brain abscess formation etc.
Enterobacter Cloacae. Similar to Klebs, normal bowel flora, assoc with mild forms of gastroenteritis and many UTI and RTI.
Hafnia Alvei, found in soli, water and foodstuffs resembles salmonella, normal bowel flora but in trout assoc with fatal infections
