Working with my compromised immune system


Given the tests I’m currently undergoing, it’s highly likely I’m going to need a traditional medical intervention to deal with bone damage and to stop my immune system attacking itself. My plan is as of last Tuesday, I’m going to eat or drink something fermented every day for 100 days. I’ve set up a tag on Instagram #100daysFermentedFood as of today, which will take me 20 August 2014. I don’t plan on stopping eating/drinking fermented goodies then, I just want to create a new norm in my lifestyle where I become even more conscious of loving and supporting my entire body on every level. 

I’ve been making Kombucha for 5 years and more recently expanded my repetoire into kefir and fermented vegetables. This blog is kinda like my food diary to a) help me remember some of the amazing concoctions I come up with, and b) to keep me accountable. I’m always happy to share recipes and get feedback, updates or new insights to other good foods/drinks that support good gut health and a strong immune system, so please feel free to contribute here.

    Did the Water Kefir Crystal thing myself earlier this year, made a lot of difference to me. After several months I decided to give it a rest for awhile.

    What’s going on with your body?

    You are committed and determined, you won’t find it too difficult.

      Hi Margot,
      How gorgeous to hear from you here! I go back to the Rhumetologist next Tuesday for results – highly likely I’m living with Psoriatic Arthritis – auto immune dissorder :(( All makes perfect sense on an emotional level for me. Given I spent most of my life at war with myself in my head – up until 2009 that is. It’s been a long road of questions back and forwards to GPs around why I’ve had constant nausea even though I eat a frickin high class healthy diet etc. Anyway, I’ve upped the anti on fermented foods to reduce inflamation and dose up my immune system in preparation for the likelihood of working with a fairly checmical protocol to interrupt any further bone deformity and degradation.
      Hope this finds you well my beloved Reiki Master! I am so grateful I found you after all these years. Thanks so very much for staying connected – you have no idea how blessed I feel to reconnect As always, I welcome your guidance and insights. Love Bron x x
