Thread: Fermented foods

    Fermented foods

    Hey everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone here regularly consumes home made fermented veggies and/or water kefir foods? If so, what kind of good changes did they experience and if any autoimmune conditions have improved?

    I am thinking of adding them in to my diet to see if it helps with my persistent acne and mild psoriasis. Supposedly its all related to our guts? And I am sure I barely have any good bacteria since I had alot of antibiotic consumption when I was very young. And unfortunately eating the autoimmune protocol for 5 months plus vitamin D (and probiotic supplement) has not helped my issues.


    thanks in advance,
    leanzorik

    I consume homemade fermented veggies with just about every meal, and my eczema has completely cleared up. Add them in-certainly can't hurt!

    I started last week, to help me with my fasting for longer than 24 hours. I can't remember now where I read it, but he was referencing what he had read at the Perfect Diet. I know it is not technically fasting, but some of the same benefits so I am okay with it not being a total non-food fast. I can go 24 with no food, and I didnt have to have much BP coffee last week. (I ran out of good butter and what I bought at the store was nasty so I just did w/o it)

    Anyways, all I can say is that between the fasting and the sauerkraut, maybe a brief CT bath, I lost over 6lbs last week (but 4 of that was from the weekend before)
    65lbs gone and counting!!

    Wow congrats to the clearing up of the eczema. I hope it does the same thing for me too.
    I also started taking fermented cold liver oil/butter oil blend.

    We eat kefir and fermented veggies daily. Took a workshop from Sandor Katz a few years ago too. I definitely feel better eating fermented foods than not, but in a general way, not relating to any specific health issue.

    Been eating sauerkraut (clean, store-bought) and kombucha (home-brewed), and though my acne is 99% handled, this fermented food increase has even eliminated the residual redness in my skin for the most part. Me likey.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.
