KRAUT, IBS AND ME
As a teen and young adult, I suffered with many symptoms of IBS. I changed (and restricted) my diet (and life) for years with some relief... until I made my first batch of kraut.
I had no idea it could taste so good, and so I ate it everyday - on just about everything. It wasn't my intention to consume it this way, I was just following my gut.
After about a month, I realized that I no longer had any problems with bloating, my skin was glowing and many of my other digestive issues were gone! I hadn't changed anything else in my diet and so I knew it was due to the kraut!
When I introduced it to my clients, and they started getting the same results - eureka! It seemd that a simple effective gut food medicine had been found! (This was back in 2012 before it hit main stream media).
Even for my clients who cannot tolerate lactic acid ferments, we have started with just a teaspoon or less of sauerkraut juice and worked our way up, and the results have always been great.
Sauerkraut is a powerful gut aid for many reasons! Any time we ferment a food, it potentiates the natural benefits of that food and cabbage happens to be:
So sauerkraut is a potent aid of digestion, detoxification and is extremely nutritious! In addition, the ingredients are affordable, and it is simple to make. What could be better?!
GET WILD and MAKE YOUR OWN DIGESTIVE AID KRAUT
So you can eat some real sauerkraut plain,.. or give this recipe a try to really boost your digestion.
It also contains a few of the gut-helping wild weeds gentian, juniper berries and dandelion root plus citris, pepper and ginger.
Use the video link if you need a "how-to" video to get you started. Then head outdoors, collect your wild weeds (see previous posts) and give this a whirl.
PS. It's okay if you can't add all of the last six ingredients. Aim for as many as you can and try it out.
Let me know how it changes your digestive issues! I can't wait to hear all about it...
