Whatever symptoms you might be experiencing, whether it be gas, bloating, anxiety, depression, brain fog, eczema, rashes, or even an autoimmune condition - it all starts in the gut. Healing the gut is the first step toward healing your body. Our gut consists of bacteria and we need that bacteria to have a healthy balance or the rest of us will not be balanced.
What causes our guts to be off balance, having more of the bad guys than the good guys?
• birth control pills
• environmental toxins
• consumption of animals and dairy exposed to antibiotics
• genetically modified foods
What's my first line of defense for populating that good bacteria, creating balance and healing the gut? Probiotics!
The term “probiotic” is derived from the Greek, meaning “for life”. Probiotics are currently defined as “live microorganisms which, when consumed in adequate amounts, confer a health benefit to the host”.
Not only do these healthy, good organisms protect you from the common cold, boost your immune system, and improve your digestion, they are also ideal for anyone who has tried to lose weight but just can’t seem to make that happen.
Probiotics can be in pill form, powder form or you can get them from the foods you eat. Probiotic foods are a simple place to start. Excellent sources of probiotics include kefir and fermented or cultured foods and beverages. One of my favorite things to drink is Kevita Probiotic Sparkling Beverage. I love the Lemon Cayenne Cleanse, but there are MANY varieties. Be sure to stay away from the ones with sugar.

So...give some probiotic foods a try. Share your thoughts and favorites with me :)
