Many doctors never look at gut health.
They are treating people like cars, replacing this part with that part, but they neglect the GUT, and here is why this is important: the gut is the ENGINE that drives everything!
Let’s have a look at the gut facts:
- The gut is the largest organ in your body, having a surface area the size of a tennis court, which is about 2000m2!
- The small and large bowels have a combined length of about 6 metres.
- The gut walls are lined with fine mucous membranes where nutrients are absorbed into your blood stream; and toxins are removed.
Think of the world’s largest port, where massive volumes of cargo changes hands every minute of the day. Imagine if the port comes to a standstill: the global economy would take a hit, and people from all around the world would feel the pinch. As incredible as it sounds, your gut is far busier, more sophisticated and vitally more important. Trillions of food particles are filtered into the bloodstream here, to be transported to every area of your body, and toxins and wastes are filtered out and exited via the South gate (into the toilet).
- Your gut is so intelligent that it is called the SECOND BRAIN.
- Your Immune system is entirely dependant on your Gut, and therefore your gut is also classified as your IMMUNE SYSTEM.
Now, that we have uncovered these facts you can see that the Secret to Health is your GUT.
Intestinal bacteria permeate our whole being with their primal energy, filling us with vitality OR sickness and death when our gut breaks down.
Once we understood this, we started helping people heal from the inside out.
One of these ways was by including fermented foods into the diet.
Why ferment food?
Fermented foods are alive with flavour and nutrition.
During the process of fermenting dull and lifeless ingredients are transformed into live-cultured foods, teeming with good bacteria and flavour.
These thriving micro-flora give your immune system a massive boost in the right direction.
These microbes protect us from the flu and other superbugs, allergies and asthma and teach our immune system how to function optimally.
Imagine having a stomach outside of your body where all the hard work of digestion was done before you even eat?
This is what fermented foods are like.
The bacteria combine with the drinks and foods and break them down for you so the nutrients are pre-released and all your body has to do is take them straight into the cells without wasting any precious energy.
Another important reason to ferment food is that you are going to receive highly concentrated forms of vitamins, minerals, amino acids, essential fatty acids and enzymes, all of which are sorely lacking in our modern diet. (Sauerkraut has 20 times more viable vitamin C than a raw cabbage from the supermarket shelf).
Have you ever wanted to learn how to make your own sauerkraut, kombucha or kefir?
Well now is your chance!

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.
Caleb will explain why fermented ‘living’ foods should be part of our everyday diet now more than ever:
Historically, we had plenty of probiotics in our diet from eating fresh foods from good soil and by fermenting our foods to keep them from spoiling.
However, today because of chlorine in our tap water, antibiotics, antimicrobial household chemicals, dangerous agricultural practices, and sterile foods that contains little to no probiotics, our collective gut health is suffering and it’s a huge factor in the epidemic of the chronic diseases we are seeing today.
By adding more probiotic foods into your diet, you could see all of the following health benefits:
- Stronger immune system
- Improved digestion
- Increased energy
- Allergy relief
- Healthier skin
- Reduced cold and flu
- Healing from leaky gut and inflammatory bowel disease
- Weight loss
Then it’s time to start consuming probiotic foods for better health and because they taste just as delicious !!
