Its ALL About Your Gut!

 

 Hygiene Hypothesis - we are "dummying down"  our microbiome /gut and our immunity systems!

 

"Optimizing food potential using natural microbes and energy free preservation techniques to promote gut & overall health".

Our guts need to be reeducated in the way they understand. Our microbiomes think in microbial, electrochemical ways we do not yet fully understand. Out food sources are mostly sterile and we need to add benificial microorganisms. Its time to meet the Boss of your body and make a friend. Our courses are meant to be experiential and friendly. Big words will not be used unnecessarily and no one will fall asleep. Take it from me, an ex-germophobe, our society has created  unnecessary fear factors around germs. Information from all over the world is available at the bottom of all pages and updated often. Please feel free to send us links relevant..

Kitchen Gardening .ca is now a memory. Our ferment fields and gardens have grown as much as possible for our live culture food production. We are calling the production division "Moonstone Ferments"www.MoonstoneFerments.com. Everything is grown as local as possible and "organic/ sustainable/ permacultured/ biodynamic/ synergistically" as possible in our ../TheFermentFarm.html. We are updating that website with all kinds of fun pics. "Farm to Ferment, Garden to Gut!". Lots of pics for  are posted regularly as we continue to take growing food into the next level. Eating LOCAL and LIVE All Year Long using traditional food preservation meathods tried and proven for thousands of years!

CARROT: Improve the length and quality of your life. Make yourself strong enough to handle whatever gets thrown your way.

STICK: Scare Factor: One out of two men will be diagnosed with cancer and one in three women, according to some USA statistics found on the internet (?). Regardless, I chose not to wait, and to do whatever I can to lessen my risks. Adding health protection by spending about 15 minutes a day and a few dollars a week is totally do-able. If you find something that works so well for so many and its almost free, its just something you have to share. I would have loved to see/taste/feel these growths combined in a quickie experiential course. I went through my own fear factors as I added each to my kitchen counter and found how safe and easy it really is. "Changing the world for the better, a little at a time" is why I now offer this to you. I will completely refund this fee to anyone who is not more than completely satisfied.

This website is very much under construction. My gardening blog can entertain until this website gets perfected, if ever.

Notes 16.09.28                                              LIVE CULTURE FOODS

Gut-Probiotics

- 70% of our immune system,

- “Hygiene Hypothesis” too clean, more allergies/asthma

 -immune system learns, just like brain

- most digestive enzymes in saliva-chew-chew

-hydrochloric acid and pepsin

- mucous lining protects -Direct intestinal barrier

- less acid  30's and 40's when problems start

-15% certain bacteria make it through the digestive acids

-(one to 10 billion)needed so some will make it into lower intestines

-400 species of bacteria weighing about 2kg

 

- complex coevolution of bacterial strains, cultivated through our food supply –now we can use therapeutic foods to reeducate a compromised  immune system

-activation of neural pathways between gut and brain

- Disruption to the balance of bacteria through medication exposures, gluten, herbicides, stress, and infection can set the stage for the innate immune system to prepare for attack.

- probiotics research have been limited to a handful of strains out of the more than 7000

 Sprouts

- super alkaline food

- 100 times more enzymes

- Essential Fatty Acids

-lysene

-Complex biochemical changes

- Biophotons http://www.seed.org/blogs/science/?p=36

breakdown of complex compounds into a more simple form, transformation into essential constituents and breakdown of nutritionally undesirable. proteins, fat, certain essential amino acids, total sugars, B-group vit

-chlorophyll detoxifier

 

Kombucha

- at least one beneficial yeast,

- acetobacter (the beneficial bacteria in the SCOBY),

- gluconic acid (a pH regulator

 - acetic acid (an anti-microbial acid, which also stabilizes blood sugar) .

-analgesic (pain reliever)

-anti-arthritic compound, an anti-spasmodic compound,

- a liver-protective compound,

- several anti-bacterial compounds.

-many store bought are heat treated (pasteurized) to prevent growth once contained, just like most yogurt. Look for fine print: ”contains live culture”

 Kefir / Yogurt

-Probiotics feed on the “bad” unhealthy bacteria in our stomach and intestines.

-protecting the mucosal lining where unhealthy yeast and bacteria reside

-natural balance to your internal microflora.

- Good bacteria/yeasts: 10-15 strains in water kefir compared to 30 - 50 in milk kefir

- may be 40X more live culture count in kefir than yogurt

- bacteria and yeast found in commercial yogurt are transient meaning they will not colonize your digestive tract

- Saccharomyces kefir, which can dominate, control and eliminate destructive pathogenic yeasts in the body

- most lactose gets eaten by kefir & yogurt

 Fermenting

- widespread fermentation practices in traditional cultures

-filtering out pathogenic microbes as E. coli and intestinal parasites

- creates new nutrients

-vitamin production,

-mineral absorption,

-detoxification

- Boost Immune system

-antioxidant: scavenges free radicals (cancer precursors)

- reconnecting to the natural world through our food; communicating through our guts to our brains, that nutrients are plentiful, our bodies are safe, and that our inflammatory systems can be put at ease.

- 2 mouthfuls of sauerkraut equal to whole bottle of probiotics with 60 times more bacterium varieties.

-  pesticides changed and/or removed
