Restoring Health with Sauerkraut?

Whether you have food allergies or not, there is a lot of information out there stating the importance of having a healthy gut. I know that I need to continue to find ways to restore healthy bacteria in my own.

Below are two articles I found very informative about sauerkraut and its health benefits. Once again, sharing is caring so we smile on to a great Monday…

The Importance Of Bacteria Exposure To Prevent Eczema

Since this is a topic that I am beyond interested in, I wanted to share this post about bacteria exposure and gut health. Check it out and smile on with us…

Our Eczema Story

As a child, we all played in the dirt. And we just rinsed ourselves off under the garden hose. Our parents didn’t use antibacterial wipes on things before we played with them and they certainly didn’t have antibacterial stations around the office (or factory back then).

Our obsession with keeping everything so clean has come back to bite us. Our bodies actually need exposure to bugs to grow strong immune systems. And our immune system needs to be strong to ensure we are healthy. Weak immune systems can cause all sorts of health issues and diseases, one of which we have discovered is eczema.

Probiotic formula reverses cow’s milk allergies by changing gut bacteria of infants

One of the common theories of how to outgrow food allergies is to restore one’s gut by increasing the healthy bacteria in it.   To do this, we use allergen-free probiotics twice a day in addition to eating foods that we have heard do this as well (avocado, bone broth, etc.) (But, I’ll post about that another day.)

With that being said, this article is not only worth the read, but definitely keeps us hopeful for more definite answers in the near future so we smile on…
