As a woman, I must share this easy-to-make, delicious, vibrant smoothie 🙂 I first heard about green vegetable smoothies when I was on The Body Ecology Diet (B.E.D.) to heal a stubborn case of systemic yeast overgrowth.
I’ve made young green coconut kefir (yck) for going on 10 years and have moved through many learning curves. As a result, I can now whip up a batch of this delicious drink in much less time then I once did and with zero frustration. I hope my tips ‘n tricks help you be ready to dive in. My recipe here and a great visual here.
Raw, organic cacao powder made with a gut-friendly sugar, like stevia or lakanto, will not necessarily feed Candida, also known as Candidiasis or yeast overgrowth, but can be abrasive to the digestive tract lining.
This is because chocolate contains abrasive ingredients, such as sulfur, phytic acid, caffeine, oxalates, and alkaloids; all which make chocolate an acid-forming and potentially gut-irritating food.
Boluses (a.k.a. ovules, vaginal suppositories) are anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and provide relief from vaginal yeast infections. These tube-like shapes are solid at room temperature but melt once inserted to release the oils and herbs inside which will absorb into the vaginal tissue.
The cultured food I am talking about here does not contain salt …. cultured butter, creme fraiche, coconut kefir, cultured vegetables; all living foods made with probiotic starter*. NO salt. See more about that bit here.
When you eat unsalted, cultured food, the probiotics in them will go into your gut/inner ecosystem and set up shop where they make babies, grow in population, and essentially build micro-cities the size of New York City in a matter of hours. No joke. Once they settle into your gut lining they are in a position to support you in various beneficial ways.
