“Yogurt, sauerkraut, kim chi and other fermented foods, we use these foods to help us with good digestion as they replenish the good bacteria that colonize our intestinal tract” – Daniel Vitalis
Fermented foods introduce helpful probiotics to our guts. There are tons of possible benefits to adding probiotics (whether by supplement or by fermented foods) to your body, including protection from colon cancer, relief from lactose intolerance, diarrhea, reduction in cavities and helps prevent inflammatory bowel disease. So many illnesses begin in the gut so it is important to introduce healthy bacteria into your diet daily.
Cultured foods help to repopulate the digestive tract, help the body to be more alkaline, and greatly decrease cravings for sweets or deserts. Cultured foods are “super foods” because they are partially digested, so the nutrients are readily available with little work for your body. Cultured foods actually add to the enzyme stores of your body. In addition, they help restore balance if your body is in a toxic, acidic condition. Besides providing an abundance of friendly bacteria, these enzyme- rich foods are a high-quality, alkaline, expansive food, which balances out the foods that make us crave acid- forming sugars.
Implementation: Add probiotic producing foods to your diet, your gut will thank you.
Affirmation: I am in charge of my own perspective and I have the power to change it, even though I may not have the power to change external events.
