The Probiotic Promise
Simple Steps to Heal your Body From the Inside OuteBook - 2015
Most people think probiotics - the bacteria found in yogurt, fermented foods, and supplements - are intended exclusively for digestive health. But that's just the tip of the iceberg of what these micro-miracle workers can do. Exciting new research reveals that probiotics can heal a whole host of health conditions, including allergies, arthritis, celiac disease, depression, brain disease, urinary tract infections, and can even inhibit cancer, HIV and AIDS. By simply taking the right strains of live probiotic bacteria, in the right quantities, at the right time, a person's health can be transformed, increasing the body's resistance to future bouts with disease. Unfortunately, however, few people know what the right strains, quantities, or timing should be - and corporations that manufacture probiotic-containing yogurt, beverages, and dietary supplements aren't helping the situation by making false claims about their products. That's where The Probiotic Miracle comes in. Michelle Schoffro Cook draws on new research to demonstrate the link between GI health and overall health, and how probiotics can be used to address a host of medical issues&́#x1b;p0b4seven "superbugs" and other microbes that are resistant to antibiotics. In addition to showcasing the startling research about these beneficial flora, The Probiotic Miracle shows readers what to look for in probiotics (how to tell if the cultures truly are "live," which strains of bacteria are best for certain health conditions), empowering readers to take charge of their health by presenting practical healing information in an easy, do-it-yourself format. It also includes recipes for homemade, naturally-fermented foods (Yogurt, Dairy-Free Yogurt, Vegan Mozzarella, Cultured Coconut, Kombucha, Cider, Sour Dough Bread, Low Sodium Sauerkraut, Ginger Beer, and more).
