Vania Le Roux-Dr Ferment Cultured Farmacy

I love simplicity. To observe. To align my lifestyle with nature. My background in Permaculture design together with my research into optimum nutrients and health led me to fermented foods and ultimately starting Dr Ferment Cultured Farmacy in Plettenberg Bay.

Soil needs microbes to digest/compost and make nutrients available for plants to grow, human cells are similar. The human microbiome consists of microbes (bacteria, yeast and fungi) teeny little guys that digests/ferments food in the digestive tract to make nutrients available to the body. When the gut is colonised with the good guys (pro-biotics) we have a strong immune to weather viruses, toxins and even stress.

It is the perfect example of Nature’s intelligence, so simple yet so powerful a tool in insuring our own health (the microbiome) and contributing to a healthy environment (the macrobiome). Fermentation preserves food, adds to the nutrient content, provides large amounts of pro-biotics and to top it all perpetuates this cycle of life in our ‘waste’ – ultimately it all ends up back in the soil.
