    The SueroGold ferments veggies that are super I put 3 kinds of bell peppers radishes an onion and a bottle of SueroGold in a food processor so that the veggies would have as much surface area for fermentation as possible I left it in a more or less warm spot for several days I then added a decent quantity of salt as an added preservative put them in a glass jar and refrigerated them Superb ledisi Newbie Posts 1 Karma 0 0 Re fermented foods Reply 1 on January 16 2015 07 30 45 PM Hi there I m brand new to the forum and this information and its wonderful Mary can you please tell me where I find the information on SueroGold I sure need to learn to ferment and also I want to thank you for the bell pepper radishes and onion mention For some weird reason I thought I d have to do fermented cabbage which grosses me out and the idea of the veggies you mentioned are much more appealing to me thank you Mary Newbie Posts 12 Karma 4 0 Re fermented foods Reply 2 on March 31 2015 01 16 09 PM I m

  • Ben Fuchs on Prostaglandins
    inflammatory drugs and aspirin are especially recognized for their toxicity to the kidneys and digestive tract and these reactions can be directly attributed to their prostaglandin suppressant activates Some of you may remember a couple pf years ago Vioxx and Bextra two COX 2 inhibitor drugs that reduced the production of prostaglandins had to be taken off the market because of their unfortunate predisposition to causing heart disease Again the question must be asked given the wide ranging effect of prostaglandins in the body given their effects on every single biochemical process how is it possible that these kinds of drugs CANNOT cause side effects and toxicity These days the only COX 2 inhibitor that s available is Celebrex and while it apparently doesn t have the same toxic profile as the other Cox 2 inhibitors that were discontinued anytime you monkey around with prostaglandin production you re asking for trouble One of the most significant aspects of prostaglandins is the fact that we can be deficient In fact prostaglandin deficiency may be a common denominator in many if not most chronic degenerative and inflammatory disease INCLUDING auto immunity Prostaglandin deficiencies may be much more common than anyone recognizes and when we consider the key relationship between essential fatty acids fat metabolism and fat absorption or fat MAL absorption and the production prostaglandins this should surprise no one This is also why improving fat absorption is a key health strategy for reversing almost all chronic degenerative diseases And it s why supplementation with essential fatty acids is so important no matter what kind of degenerative health challenges we re trying to address Pretty much all essential nutrients have some relationship to prostaglandin production or activity and understanding how these things work is critical if we are going to be able to harness and leverage healthy chemistry and mitigate the disease process The most important point or at least one of the most important points about prostaglandins is the facts that they are forms of essential fatty acids Basically we ingest essential fatty acids through foods or supplements and they get converted into prostaglandins as needed Prostaglandin deficiency is very common and associated with a lot if not all degenerative diseases You can t take prostaglandins to up your prostaglandin levels but you can use essential fatty acids in foods or supplementally which will ultimately allow you to MAKE more prostaglandins and eliminate deficiency states There s a very interesting essential fat derivative called GLA which can be thought of as an activated form of omega 6 fats and which itself is activated to ultimately form prostaglandins This makes GLA a very helpful supplement for a lot of health issues especially ones that involve the skin Borage oil is nature s best source of GLA and contains around 25 percent or so of the important substance which is pretty amazing considering the stuff is so rare Other good sources of GLA include evening primrose oil and black current oil but neither

  • Serotonin
    tells you they are why is that Lilly and Pfizer and all the other manufacturers of these substances are warning patients about side effects like suicide and violent and aggressive behavior Well as it turns out serotonin despite what you may have heard is far from a happiness and joy brain biochemical While it s true that serotonin is partially a brain based neurotransmitter nerve chemical it is involved in far more than cranial chemistry While around 3 4 per cent is located in the brain in fact serotonin is found pretty much in all the systems of the body including the blood skin lungs liver and reproductive organs And as it turns out most of the serotonin some 90 per cent or more is found in the intestines where it stimulates digestive contractions One of the serotonin s main roles is to help the body eliminate ingested food poisons Stimulating contractions of digestive tract muscles is the way the body deals with stuff it wants to expel This is why SSRIs are sometimes used as appetite suppressants under the influence of serotonin we just don t feel like eating It s also why one of the most common side effects of SSRIs is digestive disorders especially cramping loose stools and diarrhea And this promotion of intestinal contractions is a clue to the real role of serotonin You see far from being the happy hormone marketers and medical people tell us it is serotonin is an emergency response hormone It is involved in helping the body deal with survival threats and challenges in addition to the ingestion of toxins it s protective against circulatory distress especially bleeding The term serotonin actually refers to toning tightening of the sero blood Sero tonin is so named because it was first discovered in clotting components that are found in the blood the little cell fragments called platelets Thus serotonin is a major blood clotting and blood vessel contracting chemical It coagulates the blood and increases blood pressure essentially preparing the body for an emergency So not only is serotonin not a happy hormone it is actually a hormone of stress and vigilance Its main role is to prepare the body to respond to emergency whether such response requires emptying the digestive tract of poisons by causing intestinal contractions blood clotting to prepare the body for a fight hypertension to prepare the body for a flight or hypervigilance to prepare the body for some kind of perceived impending attack Contrary to mythology not only does serotonin NOT signal joy and bliss and happiness but it actually sends a completely opposite signal specifically one of preparation for the avoidance of impending doom Any happiness is associated with serotonin is a result of the body elevating emotional response to prepare its owner for some kind of stress Serotonin is a hormone of alertness and this is what accounts for its link to suicides and violent behaviors which are manifestations of the vigilance response gone crazy Basically

  • While healing the digestive system
    In other words I ve resolved so many symptoms that merely having itchy eyes is a red flag to me a whisper I had itchy eyes this morning and so I asked myself why Then I recalled that I bought some tuna in water in a pouch last night because I needed some fast food Then I recalled my dismay when as I ate the tuna I read on the bag that it was processed using soy and so the soy had to be listed as an ingredient Soy can be highly allergenic and I m attributing my itchy eyes to that soy Won t buy that product again Knowledge is indeed power Thank you Ben Rusty Newbie Posts 1 Karma 2 0 Re While healing the digestive system Reply 1 on October 31 2014 10 45 43 AM What do you think of home made Kefir from Raw Milk in digestive health Mary Newbie Posts 12 Karma 4 0 Re While healing the digestive system Reply 2 on November 04 2014 12 13 49 PM I don t have experience with it We do home made water kefir because milk spoils so easily and is a pain if it
