Dr Karen Health Talks Podcast – How to Make Fermented Foods 101



Fermented foods have a lot of health benefits. They are rich in enzymes, which help speed up digestion and absorption in our system. They are also rich in good bacteria, specifically lactobacillus acidophilus, which is an extremely beneficial flora found in the gut.

A study published in the International Journal of Obesity even found that some types of probiotics promoted weight loss.

NOTE – Most fermented foods you can buy in supermarket jars or cans have been pasteurized and cooked at high heat, killing any friendly bacteria. You’ll have to make your own pickles or sauerkraut to retain those products’ bacterial benefits. (If you take basic precautions in fermenting your own, there’s little risk.)

Constipation 101



We are not really taught about the importance of the gut and whether your digestive system is working properly. Some people have been constipated for 10 years and are dependent on laxatives. If you continue this trend, you can have further consequences.

Some people are suffering from the effects of constipation and don’t know any difference. Acne, weight, stomach pains, gas, bloating, skin issues, mood problems, lack of concentration and more!
