Fermentation is an ancient form of preserving foods to stop them from spoiling, whilst at the same time adding beneficial bacteria to your gastro intestinal tract (or wherever you decide to put it on your body!) So, it's not a new trend and even if it was, it feels like it's here to stay.
Unbeknownst to me, my mum was brewing kombucha with her SCOBY (symbiotic culture of bacterial yeast) back in the 1990s when I was a teenager running around with my short cut off shorts, black Red Hot Chilli Peppers t-shirt with flannelette shirt wrapped around my waist and Doc Marten boots.
I was too cool for kombucha and gut health back then but boy did I need it! Having suffered with poor gut health since being a teenager it's taken me some time to come around to what it needs in order to be healthy. It's something I'm still working on and probably will be for some time Healing a lifetime of gut health issues takes time after all.
My current path has lead me to doing a gut health program with Kultured Wellness. It's a pretty intense six month program that I'm still settling into and will be blogging about over on my personal blog - Cassie Hower - Learning Naturopathy.
If that's not a path you'd want to head down yourself, there are ways you can hack your gut health to give it a bit of fermented goodness on a daily basis. Here are my tips on ways you can do this.
Have you experimented with fermenting before or do you prefer to leave that to others and just enjoy consuming it? Have you found it's made a difference to your health? I'd love to know.
