As a woman, I must share this smoothie with you; easy-to-make, delicious, and a vibrant color! I first heard about green vegetable smoothies in 2011 when I used The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to heal a stubborn case of systemic yeast overgrowth and though I took time to ease into making them, I was hooked once I did.
I’ve made young green coconut kefir (yck) for going on 10 years and have moved through many learning curves. As a result, I can now whip up a batch of this delicious drink in much less time then I once did and with zero frustration. I hope my tips ‘n tricks help you be ready to dive in. My recipe here and a great visual here.
Raw, organic cacao powder made with a gut-friendly sugar, like stevia or lakanto, will not necessarily feed Candida, also known as Candidiasis or yeast overgrowth, but can be abrasive to the digestive tract lining.
This is because chocolate contains abrasive ingredients, such as sulfur, phytic acid, caffeine, oxalates, and alkaloids; all which make chocolate an acid-forming and potentially gut-irritating food.
Boluses (a.k.a. ovules, vaginal suppositories) are anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and provide relief from vaginal yeast infections. These tube-like shapes are solid at room temperature but melt once inserted to release the oils and herbs inside which will absorb into the vaginal tissue.
Probiotic-rich, unsalted cultured food helps eczema/dermatitis and other skin disorders because at the root of these conditions is often a gut flora imbalance and damaged intestinal lining.
Cultured foods, naturally rich in probiotics, deliver loads of beneficial bacteria to the gut where they quickly colonize – crowding out the pathogenic bacteria, yeast, etc. living there. Not only do friendly flora keep bad guys “in check”, but also maintain a balanced
The cultured food I talk about does NOT contain salt and YES to lots of probiotics! Some of my favorites are ….
My nerdy write-up about unsalted cultured foods is here.
When you eat unsalted, cultured food, the probiotics that are inside them go into gut/inner ecosystem and set up shop. Once there, they make babies, grow in #’s, and build mini cities the size of NYC in a matter of hours. No joke. Once they settle in your gut lining they are in a strong position to support you in various beneficial ways.
