Fermented foods contain a wide variety of bacteria and yeasts that can provide many health advantages. Below are my favorite plant based fermented dressings by Cleveland kitchen as well as my Miso soup with optional rice ramen recipe! Microbes in fermented foods, known as probiotics, produce vitamins like K and B’s, hormones involved in metabolic processes like appetite, fat storage, insulin sensitivity, glucose tolerance, as well as short-chain fatty acids. They also increase microbial diversity, and decrease inflammatory proteins. If you do however tend to have gut sensitivities, suspect you may have food sensitivities or intolerances the first step is...
What Are Probiotics?
Commonly known as living bacteria that inhabit our digestive system, “probiotic” literally means promotion of microorganism grown.
Probiotics and probiotic supplements can include bacteria, bacterial spores, or fungi (yeast).
WHY TEST IGG SENSITIVITIES?
Immunoglobulin G (IgG) food testing is a useful guide for structuring elimination diets for patients with many chronic conditions. Individuals with neurological, gastrointestinal, movement, and behavioral disorders often suffer from IgG food sensitivities. People may continue to eat offending foods unaware of their potential adverse effects. Symptoms associated with food sensitivities may occur hours or days after the offending food was eaten because IgG food antibodies remain for a much longer time than IgE antibodies. IgE food allergy causes the release of histamine, producing an immediate hypersensitivity reaction. In contrast, IgG food sensitivity is triggered by the binding of complement to IgG food antigen complexes, causing an inflammatory response. This is a delayed hypersensitivity reaction in which symptoms appear anywhere from hours to days after eating the offending food. Elimination of IgG-positive foods may improve symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome, autism, AD(H)D, cystic fibrosis, rheumatoid arthritis, and epilepsy, according to numerous clinical studies.
