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.

 

 

 

Kombucha good for the gut

KombuchaAccording to the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, Kombucha has effective anti-microbial properties against a number of harmful micro-organisms including salmonella, staphylococcus, H. pylori, E. coli etc. Kombucha tea has a nice refreshing taste similar to apple cider and has been  praised for supporting natural balance and vitality of the body for centuries.

Lactic acid, another key element found in Kombucha, acts as a probiotic, helping to maintain healthy microflora that is essential for a strong immune system. It is recommended after the use of antibiotics.

It is believed to help fight off harmful bacteria and pathogens by regulating the level of acidity in the digestive tract. Kombucha tea also contains live enzymes and is rich in antioxidants. Over the centuries Kombucha has been used as a folk remedy to increase vitality, improve digestion, relieve constipation, detoxify the liver, lose weight, reverse the aging process, thin the blood, control appetite, prevent and treat cancer, arthritis, asthma, acne, high blood pressure, bronchitis, candida, high cholesterol, chronic fatigue, depression, colds and flu, diarrhea, gout, kidney problems (including stones), psoriasis, rheumatism, menopause, hair loss, graying, and so much more!

You can buy Kombucha from Terra Madre SA at R18 for 250ml. You can drink from 150ml to 250ml a day to feel the benefits.

Kombucha is not a replacement for medication. Please consult your professional health care provider before using Kombucha.
