Fermentation - raw sauerkraut and raw kefir

Fermentation - raw sauerkraut and raw kefir


The key to health is strong, healthy bowel flora which act as a defence system against illness.

Fermentation is all about building a vast array of bowel flora to bolster the immune system. The following recipes are simple to make and something you can keep in the fridge. I suggest taking raw kefir on an empty stomach. Take spoonfuls of the Sauerkraut as desired or add into salads.


Raw Sauerkraut

1 hard cabbage sliced through a food processor
1 tsp celtic seasalt

  1. Combine in a bowl and massage until it starts to produce liquid.
  2. Cram into a kilner jar pressing the mixture down hard to avoid air pockets.
  3. Fold an outer cabbage leaf and place on top of mixture and force lid down.
  4. Store in airing cupboard for 3 days and then refrigerate.
  5. Eating a little with each meal is an excellent aid to digestion.


1 hard cabbage
2 carrots
1” stick of raw ginger
1 onion

  1. Put all ingredients through the slicer on a food processor.
  2. Follow recipe above.

Raw Kefir

Order a sachet of culture on-line.

You can use green coconut water with a water kefir or coconut yoghurt or a sachet of culture for milk kefir.

  1. Gently warm either green coconut water or - my preference is raw goats milk - in a pan to take away the cold.
  2. Place the culture in a medium sized kilner jar and pour the liquid over it.
  3. Leave in airing cupboard for 12 hours, then refrigerate and it is ready for use.
  4. Have a little first thing in the morning or between meals as it is more beneficial on an empty stomach.

The Gut Microbiome - are we more microbe than human?

Professor Robert Knight of the University of California, San Diego, US spoke to the BBC in 2018 stating that scientists say our human cells only make up 43% of the total cells in our body, the rest is bacteria.

CBD Hemp Oil

One of the compounds of cannabis is Cannabidiol or CBD. There are a number of medicinal uses for CBD oil (see below). People are more open to the medical benefits of CBD, especially now that it can be separated from the THC, known for its psychoactive effects. In order to separate CBD from the THC (tetrahydrocannabinol) and other parts of the plant, it has to be extracted. The result is CBD hemp oil.
