I’ll be focusing my posts on gut health for a chapter as I navigate through healing my own gut. I firmly believe the gut is the powerhouse to my health after reading @emeranamayer MDs book “The Mind Gut connection” as featured on my highlights. I was fortunate enough to see him present @neurotrition ‘s conference this year and was inspired by the depth and breadth of his expertise. He is a gastroenterologist, lecturer, author, editor, neuroscientist, documentary filmmaker and a professor in the Departments of Medicine, Physiology and Psychiatry at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA. He is a pioneer of medical research into brain gut interactions, he’s a hero. Given the many rounds of LT antibiotic protocols I’ve been placed on and the state of my mental health this needs to be a focus before I start my next round in April. So in order to try and expose my gut to as many probiotics as possible I’m going to try as many as I can get my hands on. *Note, if probiotics cause pain and bloating contacting a GI specialist is suggested as this could indicate SIBO, something I had to heal before introducing pre/pro biotics. 🥒 🥂
Today I tried @farmhouseculture ‘s garlic dill pickle fermented cabbage juice. If you love dill pickles as much as I do you’ll love the shot! It’s a milder taste to pickle juice and oh so delicious. 10 billion CFUs of lactobacillius spp per 3 TBS a breakdown is included in the last pic.
I also currently supplement daily with three types of probiotics listed in comments. All supplementation has been suggested by a doctor and I strongly suggest finding someone willing to work with you if this is something you believe you might benefit from. If not, FOOD is an excellent source. .
