Everything Probiotics...

Whole food probiotics are one of the MOST important foods for a healthy body, we are learning, especially in this age of multi-drug resistant bacteria.

Here are extensive references regarding the benefits of probiotics.

There are some 400-600 microbials which inhabit and reproduce in the

gut. Some are only there transiently and therefore, to have a "healthy"

gut (based upon our historical traditional cultures), we need to consume

beneficial microbials…

Probiotic Selection

There are some 500-1000 different microbials which inhabit and reproduce in the gut. Some are only there transiently and therefore, to have a "healthy" gut (based upon our historical traditional cultures), we need to consume beneficial microbials regularly. Whole food probiotics more effectively remain viable until they reach the large intestine. Most bottled…

Homemade Probiotics?

It is cheap and simple to make whole food probiotics at home.

Dairy-free kefir, or any type of dairy could be made into kefir. And the kefir grains reproduce and you will be giving them away to friends and strangers in no time, lol.

Check the Sharing Cultures forum for members who'll share culture starters.

Refrigerated bottled probiotics generally have fewer probiotics than active…

"Yeast" intolerance

Yeast means several different things. Basically, there are good yeasts and bad yeasts. And there are live yeasts and dead yeasts.

"Yeast" collectively isn't the problem. There is (dead) yeast in (some) bread for instance and there is (live) yeast in (some) yogurt. Dead yeast are not the issue with bread. Bread breaks down rapidly into simple carbohydrates which feed "bad" yeasts in the gut and body. The "pathological" yeasts are commonly candida albicans. But simple sugars, not…

REAL kefir grains vs. kefir starter

I've not used kefir starter as it only has 7 microbials and REAL kefir grains have 56+ beneficial microbials. Kefir grains are free, or less than $15, all over the internet for a lifetime supply.

Here is more about easy homemade probiotics:...

Actually, kefir grains have…

I'd focus on magnesium sources, Nettles infusions are great, as are Epsom salt baths and Epsom salt compresses for comfort. Food folate, again such as in the Nettles or green smoothies will help the PPD and natural detox pathways. Bone broths are another wonderful source of minerals to support the immune system.

Whole food probiotics, rather than bottled, provide more different strains of microbials in larger amounts. Milk kefir (or water kefir is dairy free) has tons of probiotic… Continue

Colon Cancer

There are many options. Food folate (not synthetic folic acid), magnesium and black seed oil and whole food probiotics are major health supports to counter cancer of any kind, but specifically colon cancer.

Black seed oil:

Just made a batch of sauerkraut, and despite my initial concerns of it being to salty, it is just right! Whooo hooo! Got Kraut!

I can't believe the probiotic tubs of it sell for $5 in our co-op. Sheesh. It's just cabbage! I used some of the brine from the co-op batch to get some of the lactobacillus in. Not sure if that is useful or not. I was sort of thinking along the lines of yogurt making.

I tasted it today, after adding some dill and one shaved clove of garlic. It is…

Whole Food Heals

Mercury issues can be passed from mother to child, depending upon when mom's amalgam fillings were placed or removed, and whether mom's detox pathways are open or blocked. Nutrient deficiencies create blocked detox pathways. (And 50% of the population has a genetic predisposition to blocked methylation detox pathway with the MTHFR gene polymorphism.)

Most Americans have nutrient deficiencies, even and especially in the presence of multivitamin supplementation.… Continue

Kombucha- Candida- Mercury Issues

Kombucha has S. boulardii which displaces and replaces candida albicans. Candida binds with mercury to store it out of circulation. If one has/had mercury fillings and detoxes poorly, they are likely to have candida.…

Gut Healing with a Raw Vegan Diet?

(this is a repost of a member wondering about gut healing with a raw vegan diet)

You have some difficult questions which have no absolute answers, imo. The severity of diet one embarks upon or embraces has as much to do with "what you feed your skin and your mind and your outlook" as your body.

I don't believe in a 'search and destroy' paradigm about life and living. I believe the world is exactly as it needs to be and is whatever it is, for a reason. Many embrace a… Continue

Pancreatic cancer

While researching for my mom who had pancreatic cancer, I learned about Nigella sativa. If you don't know of it, it is an old traditional middle eastern medicinal food called black cumin seed. Here is a bunch more of the research I found about the health benefits related to pancreatic cancer.

Ranch Kefir Dressing

Maybe you are like me a total kefir fan. I seriously love kefir.

Ever since adding this probiotic to my daily life it has blessed me.

I feel how well my body responds to all the good bacteria. And whenever I have skipped it in the morning (I use it every morning as a sort of yoghurt packed with goodies like berries, nuts, pumpkin seeds, raisins, broken flaxseed and spirulina) I felt my body missed it.

I love to explore health in the widest sense; body, soul and…

Sometimes changes takes years. I can see I've been circling the healing diet for several years, waiting for something to help make it easier to abstain from certain foods. I've used my role as mom (chef), finances, life stress, etc to avoid change: "Nobody will eat this, I'll eat alone all the time, I'll have to cook two meals (mine and theirs), I don't have money for all the veg I'd go through, I can't handle this right now!" Or my husband will come home with chocolate cake or boba…
