"Lacto-fermentation means that lactic-acid producing bacteria are involved. They were first found in dairy, thus the lacto, it was only later that it was realized that the bacteria that ferment veggies also make lactic acid. So a dairy-less sour dill…"
"You are so funny! Willing to down gallons of kefir but not a few bites of happy cabbage. :-D
We've been off dairy so long that I'm not sure any of us will be able to find kefir palatable--that tart flavor, in my mind, is so connected to…"
"Okay, now I went back and read the whole thread.
Sandor Katz's Wild Fermentation is a great book for getting a good feel for how fermentation works, it's much more flexible than I first envisioned (sorry Pat :-P ). He has a website that…"
"You don't need to ferment veggies in the dark, I just do it on the kitchen counter. I probably wouldn't do it in direct sunlight, it may get too warm and ferment quite quickly, but even that would be safe, I'd think, but it may cause…"
"I admit I get confused by overmethylation, I'm not sure I can describe my understanding of it, or even whether it's right. I _think_ someone can be an overmethylator and still have a backlog of metals and junk to methylate, I think…"
"If you're getting to bowel tolerance with 400mg of magnesium, maybe you need some more calcium as well? I guess that just seems a bit low to me and I've read that it can signify a need for more calcium but I haven't tried that yet. My…"
Hey, I changed your membership to admin, so that you can take a look around at the "Manage" tools. Additional text boxes can be added to the main page, with links to other pages. Also, threads can be "Featured" in each forum. I have a thread for links at the top of each forum also. I haven't sat down to add links yet. I keep lurking (and posting) at MDC, and of course real life happens too!
I'd just like to have a centralized place to have links which are useful in this nutritional holistic paradigm regarding the immune system, gut health, and "illness" symptomology.
I use the search on MDC a lot. But, I don't have just one place to file my favorites. And I wanted them accessible for anyone to just read.
Hope you feel better quickly. Want to try the "Master Tonic"? Cured my ear ache in 2 days. :-) Wicked stuff. But, you will feel alive again. ( of course, it might just be the strong spices which invigorate your system! )
I haven't actually added any links here yet. I keep reading the ones you all have been posting lately and that leads me to read something else and something else. I need to sit down and create the site still!
Welcome! I'm open to suggestions. (Of course, there are no links posted yet...
Yes, I'll add some. LOL)
