Fermentation Skills Workshop
What are probiotics? Why do we need probiotics and! where does prebiotics fit into all this? Probiotics are live bacteria and yeasts that are good for your health. Your body is full of bacteria, both good and bad. Probiotics are often called "good" bacteria because they help prevent and treat illnesses. This class benefits those who wish to prevent illness and people who are struggling with health issues. No matter what you do the relief is always temporary. Probiotics are the good bacteria that we should consume daily that builds our immune system and prebiotics are the good bacteria's food. 80% of our immune system is found in our intestine. That's a big percentage to ignore! I offer classes teaching people how to make rich probiotics foods for pennies, aiding and showing you how to incorporate them into your life. I challenge the status quo and bringing a different perspective, showing how to bring to life Hippocrates famous quote “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Join me on Sunday 24 June at 10:00 -16:00 and learn how to equip yourself with health, that is easily applicable. Delving into the art of fermentation you will be equipped with simple practical skills to ferment at home, giving you the lifestyle skills you need to apply daily and replenish your internal ecosystem. We shall be looking at and learning how to make various milk ferments such as cheese, yoghurt, kefir, clabber. We shall be making a cheesecake from the cheese made, to eat in the afternoon! We shall discover how to use all our surplus vegetables the ancient way, preserving and enriching them by making sauerkraut. I shall explain how we as westerners have moved away from such things as the circadian rhythm (our internal, biochemical, physiological, and behavioural processes). Every living thing, from fungus to bacteria to plant to animal, has a circadian rhythm. Supermarkets have disturbed our instinct for seasonal foods and this plays a huge roll in lack of diverse microbiome within us, so we shall address prebiotic foods and their importance. Consequently, our bodies are deprived of essential nutrients, which causes imbalances in our organism. Imbalances create irrational cravings and uncontrolled eating habits, weaken our immune system, reduce our metabolism, affect our emotional condition and ‘happy’ state, and increase our risk of chronic disease. I shall be speaking on the control of what genes will be activated, and what turns your genes on and off depends on you. Taking responsibility is an option! We will sit down to a nutrient dense, organic lunch. This will be a hands-on, informative and exciting day and I look forward to the adventure with you Tickets:https://helmtickets.com/events/1809/fermentation-skills-workshop

    What we're about

    The Weston A Price Foundation challenges politically correct nutrition and the diet dictocrats, promoting wise traditions in food, farming and the healing arts.

    The Weston A. Price Foundation is a nonprofit, tax-exempt charity founded in 1999 to disseminate the research of nutrition pioneer Dr. Weston Price (http://www.westonaprice.org/nutrition-greats/weston-price), whose studies of isolated nonindustrialized peoples established the parameters of human health and determined the optimum characteristics of human diets. Dr. Price's research demonstrated that humans achieve perfect physical form and perfect health generation after generation only when they consume nutrient-dense whole foods and the vital fat-soluble activators found exclusively in animal fats.

    When Dr. Price analyzed the foods used by isolated peoples he found that they lacked dental caries, deformities and degenerative disease. In comparison to the Western diet of his day, their diets provided at least FOUR TIMES the water-soluble vitamins, calcium and other minerals, and at least TEN TIMES the fat-soluble vitamins, from animal foods such as butter, fish eggs, shellfish, organ meats, eggs and animal fats--the very cholesterol-rich foods now shunned by the public as unhealthful.

    The Foundation is dedicated to restoring nutrient-dense foods to the human diet through education, research and activism. It supports a number of movements that contribute to this objective including accurate nutrition instruction, organic and biodynamic farming, pasture-feeding of livestock, community-supported farms, honest and informative labeling, prepared parenting and nurturing therapies. Specific goals include establishment of universal access to clean, certified raw milk and a ban on the use of soy formula for infants.
