Join Love Your Guts founder, Caleb Robertson, for a hands-on, fun and informative morning of making your own sauerkraut, kefir and kombucha plus much more!
With a background in natural health and nutrition, Caleb is a wealth of knowledge and loves to share his passions of food and gut health.
In this workshop you will learn the basics of fermenting and all things gut health, take home your own ferments and starter cultures, and enjoy a delicious spread of fermented foods for morning tea in a stunning garden setting.
Why should you attend?
For starters, look at these numbers: A man-made pro-biotic supplement in pill form has around 15 billion bacteria.
Wow, that is a lot, but if you look at yogurt….
Around 500 mL of fresh yogurt has around 1.5 trillion beneficial organisms! That’s like a 100 times more!
Now how about Kefir from Kefir Grains?
At around 500 mL of refreshing Kefir, you get up to 5 trillion beneficial, friendly bacteria.
If you had choice, would you rather strengthen your immune system with a measly 15 billion bacteria or settle for 1.5 trillion if you can achieve this with the same mouthful?
What’s more, bacteria in pill form are in a dormant cycle.
The bacteria in both kefir and yogurt are alive and thriving, so they are much more fit to adapt to sudden changes in environment as they enter the body.
How can a probiotic pill win against that, while being more expensive?
You get Kefir naturally (you can get Kefir grains for just a few dollars) and they will last you a life time especially when you know how the keep them happy!
Probiotic species are the real brain behind the immune system.
If we are constantly wiping these colonies out, then our immune system suffers in the long run.
‘Probiotic strain cures peanut allergies in 80 percent of children‘
Scientists at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute are finding out that probiotics are the biggest step toward curing fatal peanut allergies in children.
The 30 children involved in this study were allergic to peanuts at the onset.
During the 18-month study, the children were given both peanut flour and a probiotic called Lactobacillus rhamnosus.
After a year and a half, 80 percent of the children were able to tolerate peanuts.
It appears that Lactobacillus rhamnosus is the missing piece of the children’s immune systems.
Lead researcher Mimi Tang said the families involved in the study were so impressed with the probiotic treatment that they said it “changed their lives.”
“These findings provide the vital first step towards developing a cure for peanut allergy and possibly for all food allergies,” Mimi Tang told Melbourne’s Herald Sun.
“It will be a major advance for medical science if we can find a treatment that is curative. It will change the lives completely for children and adults who have peanut allergies,” she said.
Lactobacillus rhamnosus is often found in yogurt, but the amount used in the study was highly concentrated and was equivalent to 44 pounds of yogurt. (This is where the Kefir comes in handy!)
By the end of the 18-month study, the children were able to tolerate up to 14 peanuts per day or four grams of peanut protein.
The normal recovery rate during this time period is only 4 percent. The probiotic Lactobacillus rhamnosus boosts recovery from a meager 4 percent to an astounding 80 percent.
(For those of you who really don’t have time or energy to attend the fermenting class, we do import the ‘queen rhamnosus’, as we fondly call her, from the US, in the form of the supplement Immuno-synbiotic.)
You will also learn all about the healing Properties of Whey!
Whey has numerous healing properties.
Contrary to other remedies or foods that act only on a single organ or in a single manner, whey’s healing action works on the intestines, liver, and kidneys, while encouraging assimilatory and eliminatory functions.
Here are four of its main healing properties.
- With the lactic acid present and that produced by the lactose it contains, whey stimulates intestinal peristalsis
- Regenerating the Intestinal Flora
- Eliminating Excess Water from the Tissues
- Stimulating Toxin elimination by the Kidneys
Principal Indications for the Whey Cure
- Antibiotic Treatment
- Bladder Infections
- Blood Viscosity and High Cholesterol
- Constipation or Intestinal Laziness
- Fatigue, Lack of Energy and Enthusiasm
- Gas and Bloating
- Heart Attack, Brain Congestion
- High Blood Pressure
- Joint Diseases
- Kidney Diseases
- Kidney Stones
- Liver Diseases and Insufficiencies
- Muscular Spasms and Cramps
- Skin Disorders
- Water Retention and Oedema
- Weight problems.
But wait: there is more!
Fermented whey has a secret ingredient you have been kept in the dark about.
If you were to order this ingredient online it would cost you over $2000 to import it from Switzerland.
Now you can make it yourself. Just wait till you hear the full story from Caleb!
I haven’t even told you yet about Kvass, sourdough bread and sauerkraut, which you will get to experience, taste and produce.
I promise you, this workshop will be a game changer.
Please share this information with anyone who suffers from aches, pains, leaky gut, allergies or serious health challenges.
See you there, Grada
