Even if the population of fermented foods is increasing these days, they don’t work for everyone and might cause serious health issues. Our instinctive refusal to fermented foods has prompted us to investigate in this direction. Below you will find Anthony’s perspective at fermented foods.
“Digestive upset is on the rise and one popular and trendy remedy for this is eating plenty of fermented foods. While ferments did play an important role in our history, it’s important to understand that it was because it was a matter of survival, not because they held any particular health benefits. These foods could be stored long term without refrigeration, and without them, many would have likely starved.
Even though they were vital at one time, we now understand that they are not life giving or important to healing any type of digestive disorder. The bacteria on these foods that we think of as being so beneficial actually thrives on decay. If you’re dealing with any kind of gut issue, it’s best to steer clear of fermented foods and focus instead on bacteria that thrive on life. These “elevated biotics” can be found on the leaves and skin of fruit and vegetables, especially sprouts. We can access these living miracles by eating high quality organic, fresh, raw, unwashed produce.
This powerful and life giving biotics nourish us on every level and are heroes for restoring digestive health as well as improving methylation and a B12 deficiency.”
