Imagine replacing gut-damaging soda pop with delicious, healing probiotic liquids! With do-it-yourself and convenience options, there are a variety of choices to share health and longevity with your family.
Fermented foods and drinks are the mainstay of the Body Ecology system of health and healing because they populate your gut with the friendly bacteria (microflora) that keep you healthy and strong.
What makes the microflora special is that they go to work for you, protecting you from pathogens, aiding digestion and making sure you have the vitamins and minerals your body needs.
Emails and phone calls pour in daily with many testimonials telling us that the Body Ecology Diet and the fermented foods and beverages have helped greatly. Because fermented foods are new to most Americans, we also get lots of questions. Since we can't answer all of them individually our weekly email newsletter is designed to educate and inform.
A frequent question we've been getting a lot of lately is "which probiotic liquid should I drink"?
We offer a range of solutions from do-it-yourself to on-the-go convenience. This article will outline a few of the key differences in the probiotic liquids, so you can make the choice that best supports your specific health needs.
A case of nine fresh young coconuts can often be purchased for as little as $15.00; check your local Asian market or health food store. Nine small coconuts will make a half gallon of young coconut kefir, so this is an economical drink.
Young Coconut Kefir makes a great healing drink for children with autism and anyone with digestive distress. In our BEDROK program for autism, we recommend that our kids try to drink as much as one pint of young coconut kefir juice per day (divided throughout the day). They drink it plain with food to assist digestion and they also drink it as a "juice" combined with a sour juice concentrate like black currant juice, cranberry, pomegranate, or blueberry concentrates. It is then sweetened with Body Ecology Stevia.
Choose Young Coconut Kefir if You Want:
Young Coconut Kefir is fun to make at home by following our easy directions.
If you have an inflamed, open permeable gut lining, when you first begin following the Body Ecology program, we do not recommend drinking kefir made from milk. You do not want the casein (the predominant protein) in milk to leak through the permeable gut wall causing allergic type reactions. We recommend you wait to drink milk kefir until your gut is healed and your inner ecosystem is well established (after about 3 months on the Body Ecology program).
But milk kefir is absolutely delicious for the millions who do thrive on it.
At Body Ecology we prefer milk kefir to yogurt because it is more potent.
