During the 3hr workshop Natalie will demonstrate 4 fermenting methods that can be introduced one at a time into the home to open up diversity of bacteria to start rebuilding your gut. If you have ever had an antibiotic or a major stressful event in your life then your gut bacteria is compromised! You can rebuild your gut bacteria using fermented foods; this is a lost essential part of our history that we are missing because of the invention of convenience and the fridge.
The 4 fermenting methods shared on the day are:
Water Kefir – how to successfully look after the grains to continually grow them to produce a high potency probiotic on going indefinitely. You will see the method to look after the grains, how to do a second ferment and what that is and why.
Milk Kefir – how to look after the grains, how to make coconut yoghurt, how to use milk Kefir grains if you are a vegan or milk intolerant.
Kombucha – the method used to look after your Scoby successfully, the clear difference between Kefir and Kombucha and why its really important to start with Kefir before you move on to Kombucha. How to do a second ferment to flavor your Kombucha.
Fermented Vegetables, you will be enjoying freshly fermented vegetables within 3-4 days of preparing them when you use the Kefir water in the mix. How to ferment successfully and the reason that fermenting your own is more effective than buying it from the shop.
You will be given the opportunity to taste and try all that is shared on the day with coconut yoghurt and second fermented Kefir to name a few. It is really important that you taste and smell the products so you know when you get home that you are on the right track.
Natalie is a Reiki Master and runs meditation circles and one day meditation retreats, Reiki workshops, Past life regression and emotional liberation one on one sessions and Fermenting workshops. She has found that true wellness is more than a physical thing. It is achievable when you combine three main aspects of life that we often forget to bring together.
She created Light Of Wellness with the aim to run workshops that open women’s eyes to a new view connecting them to their inner light. We can create peaceful happy lives and it all starts with listening rather than reacting. Working on our selves and leading by example. We are not able to change others we must make the changes within ourselves first. Once you know this you can not unknow it.
