On a whim a couple months ago, I decided to offer a class on fermented foods. Of all the topics I could speak on from stress reduction, energy work, positive thinking, meditation, acupuncture, nutrition, herbs, essential oils…you get the picture…I chose the most obscure topic.
It has turned out to be the best topic as well. I love to offer classes that supply tools so participants can maintain their own healing process. Culturing vegetables may seem a little out there but they are medicinally healing, easy to make, and with a little creativity a lot of fun in the kitchen.
Since offering several classes, people have given testimonials on their success incorporating the cultured veggies into their meals or supplement regime.
A woman in her early-thirties with an exacerbation of a chronic skin condition ate 2 tsp of the carrot ginger cultured veggies for 5 days. Her skin calmed down and her constipation disappeared. She was out of town and without her veggies and the condition returned at a less severe level. She is back taking the veggies and everything has balanced out.
Another woman in her early-thirties is experiencing an intense detox reaction of nausea and has needed to reduce her intake of cultured veggies and coconut kefir, but has noticed a reduction in the lymph swelling she has suffered from for years.
A three year old boy had a healing crisis of a very phlegmy cold as we are in the process of re-establishing his gut microflora. His will be a journey that I will be very excited to witness.
Others have no cravings for sweets or wine. I can attest to the effects of cultured veggies on cravings and on regulating bowel function. I was shocked I had no interest in a glass of wine, I couldn’t even force it down. The addition of coconut kefir and cultured veggies has helped in reducing my stress level, assimilate nutrients and improve digestion, maintain a rock solid immune system, and maintain weight.
How does a fermented vegetable do all this? You can learn about it at my class!
