The Hidden Power Of Fermented Food

  The Hidden Power Of Fermented Food Introduction People have been fermenting food for thousands of years, but the concept has only recently risen to prominence thanks to new research about its health benefits. While researchers have known for a long time that fermented foods are rich in probiotics and healthy bacteria, we're now finding out that these foods can potentially boost our immune systems and help us fight off diseases. For example, scientists recently discovered that fermented foods can improve gut health by increasing the number of "good" bacteria in our stomachs. This helps protect us from auto-immune diseases like Crohn's disease and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). People who regularly eat fermented foods also report improved digestion and even clearer skin! We've compiled a list of some common types so you can begin implementing this age-old tradition into your own life today! Fermented food is a powerful weapon against auto-immune sickness You migh

Gut Health & Disease

  Gut health & disease Introduction We’ve recently begun to understand the importance of our bodies’ microbiomes. Microbiomes are populations of microbes—tiny microorganisms like bacteria and fungi—that live in and on our bodies. We have microbiomes in our mouths, on our skin, and of course, in our guts. Gut health and mental health You are not only what you eat, but also how it affects your gut. The gut is connected to the brain, and vice versa. This means that any problems in the digestive system can result in symptoms similar to those of neurological disorders like autism or schizophrenia. There are many different parts of the brain involved with digestion including: The Hypothalamus-Pituitary Axis (HPA) axis runs from your hypothalamus down to your pituitary gland which then releases hormones that signal other organs (like your adrenal glands) The Sympathetic Nervous System is responsible for controlling bodily functions such as heart rate and sweating when we're stressed o

Microbiome & Mental Health

  Microbiome & Mental Health Introduction There is no doubt that the Microbiome plays a key role in your physical health. But did you know it can even affect your mental health? While there are still many aspects of the Microbiome that are not understood, we do know that the gut bacteria influence multiple aspects of our mental health, including mood and anxiety. There are several ways to modify your Microbiome, such as eating probiotics and prebiotics, which can positively impact your mood. What is the Microbiome? You may have heard of the microbiome, but you probably don't know what it is. The microbiome is the collection of microorganisms that live in your body and the collective genome of all those microorganisms. Microbes are everywhere — on your skin, in your nose and mouth, inside your gut — even in places we haven't looked yet like the mouth or vagina! They're even on other surfaces like shoes or countertops! There are so many tiny living creatures that they out

Gut Health Is The Key To A Long & Healthy Life- Did I Mention Sex

Peace FAM: Today we toasted up Ujamaa, and looked at another wasted resource in our community. Unlike the other resources I have talked about, this resource is heavily under research. The resource that I am speaking of today is the gut. We have neglected and it has come back to haunt us. It was said by Hippocrates (who was a student of the KMT mystery system) "that all disease begins in the gut", and finally science is catching up with the sages of old. Just in the little time that we have been talking about the gut, we have run into at least 15 common ailments that can be traced back to our microbiome. We have been taught to break our body down into parts, and these parts work together in groups, and these groups work together to form a whole, but modern science and ancient wisdom is shutting that illusion down. The human body has it's own ecology, and this ecology works together to form us. When our ecology falls out of balance then the whole system is out of wack. W

"That Lemon Lime & Ginger Ambrosia"

"That Ambrosia" is a drink that was created for those on the Journey. I felt that we were in need of something to replace the unhealthy sugar drinks that we are consuming. "That Ambrosia" is a live beverage that helps you with gut health. It provides healthy yeast and bacteria that are involved in an alchemical process of fermentation. They transform the ingredients of raw unpasturized honey, and green tea into an elixir that is tasty as well as good for you. I decided to begin experimenting with other herbs to enhance the healing properties that may already be in this drink (read my last post about "That Ambrosia"). Before we go into the lemon, lime, and ginger, let's discuss the gut and some of the issues that may arise from an unhealthy gut. Then we can look at the first combination I added to my line of elixirs. The gut or as it is also none the digestive system is composed of the mouth, esophagus, throat, stomach, pancreas, gall bladder, colon/an

GNJ presents "That Ambrosia"

"That Ambrosia" is a brain child that I have been working on for the last 2 years. I started by experimenting with fermenting honey to make mead. I love mead but it would take long periods of time to get a product worth sharing, plus I wanted something with a few more benefits. I knew at the time that I did not want to use sugar in any of my drinks and that was about the time that  I stumbled on the health benefits of raw honey. Honey had been used for thousands of years and many properties of honey were recognized by ancient healers like: Honey is antibacterial, and antifungal It helps in healing and cleaning out wounds Helps with digestion soothes sore throats and finally it is filled with phytonutrients  (which is a substance believed to be beneficial in the fight against certain diseases) Honey is powerful but the most powerful thing that I discovered and fell in love with was the fermentation process. The fermentation process in my opinion is true alchemy. This i
