Try fermented  vegetables instead. Here's a great website that explains all about fermenting veggies. He gives a few specific recipes, but the techniques can be used on any vegetables that are good on your SWAMI.

You can use "wild bacteria" like Sandor Katz reccomends, or use a capsule of Polyflora as a starter. But there's no need to consume dairy to get your probiotics from food.

Ruthiegirl,

I'm just curious if you have his book?.  I've been wanting his book for awhile now, but finances have not allowed me purchasing it.  If you have the book is it worth getting, does it have alot of recipes and more info. than on his site?.

Thanks!

I have the book, though it's in storage at the moment.

The book is much better than the website!

I took his book out of the library, at the same time as a  bunch of other books on similar subjects. If I was going to spend the money on one book about fermenting, I would buy Wild Fermentation. however, reading it once  (along with lots of online discussions about fermenting) was enough for me to feel comfortable with my homemade ferments. I don't feel the need to use any books at all at this point.

I'd suggest getting the book out of your local library and checking it out for yourself. Then you can decide if it's worth owning, or if reading through it once (or however many times you want to read it while you have it out) is enough for you to have the same kind of confidence in your ferments.

Sandor Katz (author of "Wild Fermentation") also has a good video on how to ferment cabbage (though you can use any vegetable in its place) on YouTube.com. Just do a search on that site.

Thanks Ruthie,

I wish i could check it out of my library, i already tried it but they don't carry it.  I've even tried going to book stores just to look at it to see if it's worth buying, but can't seem to locate a physical copy anywhere.

When i get the money i'll probably take the plunge (though i may try to get a used copy) and buy it.

Can you request it through inter-library loan? My local library is part of my county's library system. There are a whole lot of books that they don't have in my library itself (I can't walk in there and find it on the shelf) but I can request it online (or in person, but I find online easier) and they'll send it from anotehr library in the county and I can pick it up at my library.

Quoted from Lola
make your own compliant milk and add an opened polyflora.....best avoid free yogurt ever!


I keep forgetting to do that. I just bought some more polyflora..   Also I would like to try that with soy and see how that tastes..soy yogurt.

Thanks for the link Drea!  

Ruthiegirl,
All the counties libraries are interlinked, they just don't have it in our county system.  

Thanks!

It still can't hurt to talk to a librarian. They might still be able to borrow the book from a neighboring county, but it's a slightly more involved process and takes longer. You can also request that the library purchase the book. If they get enough requests for the same title, it goes on their shopping list.

I think Donna is a wise woman and has a lot of good things to say.  AND, she devotes a lot of time to blood type variation in her book.  Her book helped me quite a bit and I have used some of her techniques and wisdom.  I think cutting out sugary fruits for a time helped me.  But I don't think it's something you should do long term.  I think Donna's diet could make you skinny real fast, because it's very strict.  But I think there is some wisdom about the body, healing, etc etc that can be incorporated in life.  

I think Dr. D's plan is very very good. It's all good info.  It is also my opinion that no one person can be right about everything.  So......  you have to learn to follow the things you know that work for you.  This is probably the best place to start learning though if you want to overcome some ailments or whatever.  Meaning Dr.D's books.

I've contemplated Body Ecology for about 15 years and frankly, it's just too OTT complicated, just my O opinion.  My bowels are perfectly fine despite occasional use of alcohol etc; my system seems to roll along just fine.  She did introduce kefir & the fermented veggies, I'll give her that.  15 years later I'm still not gonna ferment my own vegetables.  Kefir is neutral for Hunter, I indulge in one container a week or so.  Frankly what's helped me the most in years is my big nightly feast.  Just eating a huge meal at night cycles with raw fruits and veggies during the  day has improved my digestion/bowels 150%.  That and tons of exercise.   I've been using whey protein powder, an avoid.  Maybe that has helped as well.
