  • The Fungal Form is a form that you want to identify and get rid of.  Think mold and mildew on a rotting floorboard or a wall. That’s what happens in your gut, and it causes problems in your digestive tract.

There are 150 species of yeast and, as I’ve said, most aren't a problem. We need them. The problem with yeast is when you get too much, it becomes a bad issue. Candida albicans is one of the most harmful types. The primary fuel...

Fermented Foods and Why They Matter

 

What is fermented food?

Fermented foods have been around for thousands of years.  It has been a way to keep food fresh, especially before the invention of refrigeration.  Fermented Foods are put through a fermentation process in which natural bacteria create lactic acid by feeding on the sugar and starch. Outside of perserving the food the process creates beneficial enzymes, b-vitamins, fatty acids, and various strains of probiotics. They have many health benefits.

Why fermented food?
