Fermentation: Fermented vegetables, Kimchi and Sauerkraut “Healthy Probiotics”

FermentationThis ┬áis one of the most important talks we’re ever going to do. This is about fermentation, but it’s not really about fermentation. Fermented vegetables are critical to overall gut health. We have to change your perception. Now, are bacteria good or bad? Don’t answer. What does the television tell .you?

Audience members: Bad.

Bad, evil, everything. And so we’re always trying to fight bacteria, and none of that stuff really matters. Yeah, fighting bacteria is a losing war. Now have you ever heard of multibiotic resistant staph?

Audience: Yeah.

Okay, this is a deadly staph that’s created by us, from using multiple, more and more and more powerful antibiotics and cleansers, and it’s getting so powerful that it’s actually killing humans where we can’t stop it. These bugs are getting stronger and stronger. So guess what the solution is when they find these ultra-powerful bugs inside of schools? Guess what they do?

Audience: They disinfect.

They disinfect. They do the same thing that caused it in the first place. So they’re missing the big picture. There are pathogenic bacteria and there are good bacteria, okay? There are bacteria that are bad. There are bacteria that are good. There’s a heck of a lot more. So if you start to understand that we fight sick infections, sick bacterial infections by adding healthy bacteria, not by killing the sick one.

Now think of this. What this means is we don’t fight disease, we promote health. Mother Theresa wouldn’t attend an anti-war rally. She would attend only a pro-peace rally. I don’t talk about against disease; I talk about pro-health, okay? So what I want you to do is start to change your perception of bacteria, by not thinking about what do we do to fight the bad? How do we promote the good? Okay, does that make sense? Now bacteria, they’re all over the place. This is hard to see up in the corner, but this is from the movie Gladiator. I don’t know if you’ve ever seen that, but he had a really nasty cut on his arm and flies landed on it. Now what do flies lay?

Audience: Eggs.

Eggs. Now what are the eggs called?

Woman: Maggots.

Maggots, exactly. Now did you know that maggots actually can only eat dead flesh? They’re used to debris burn wounds. They poop out a natural anti-microbial. They actually seal and heal the wound? Now what does everybody inside the slave trade say? “Don’t brush those bugs off; they’re healing you.” Isn’t that cool? It’s almost like we’re supposed to live here. So bacteria rock, they really do and if you want to see a good movie, John Carter’s pretty cool. I just saw it this weekend, but now this. You’re using bacteria already, but how many people had a good healthy dose of bacteria today? What did you have?
