3 fun facts about probiotics


Are you addicted to homemade probiotics and take daily doses to work?

Do you get tired of having to explain why you like to take your homemade nourishing drinks and meals to work? As a health conscious coach I’ve seen colleagues guzzle garbage and suck soft drinks that make me want to puke.

It never ceases to amaze me how quick people are to judge healthy choices. Now I don’t try and force my thoughts on anyone else but oh boy, plenty of people want to tell us how crazy we are for doing what we are doing don’t they? 

Until suddenly someone gets sick and comes and asks you what homemade probiotics you’d recommend for a beginner. And what do you do? Go blank? Rattle off some spiel you heard somewhere and hope they’ll understand what you just tried to convey in amongst your shock and excitement? 

Having a solid understanding of why you’re doing what you’re doing on your healing journey will help. And having key sets of words ready to roll off your tongue will help even more. It will also help you grow more confident in your knowledge of fermenting for food medicine. Plus whoever you’re explaining it too will have confidence in you!

So here’s a few quick sets of words you might like to practice and have ready – and not just for your mates at work. Finally please please please, only share this info if you’ve been invited to – no one likes being preached to – NO ONE ok?
