Most of the probiotics are dairy or fermented foods.  I am allergic to mold and have been advised away from fermented foods.

I instead control inflammation by alternating tumeric powder, fresh ginger root and cinnamon in warm water

with 1 fresh squeezed lemon and 1T locally sourced honey.  I have been doing this each morning for about

1 month now and do not ache as I did prior.  I rarely eat dairy, gluten or meat and instead eat many whole

foods purchased at the local farmers mrkt.  I also do not consume soy beans in any fashion due to most

being gmo and... soy messes with women's hormonal balance (don't need that! ;) ).

I have also been choosing foods that are alkaline and not acidic.  Lemon strangely enough is alkaline inducing

and an awesome food all around.

Soy Sauce is what's left after fermenting Miso and Soy sauce contains msg.  Again... personally, I skip all soy products :)

 

 

Noodling around the nets there are several sources for natural ways to consume enough pro and prebiotics.

I'll just site a couple.

 

Probiotic sources:

 

Yogurt
Kefir
Sauerkraut
Dark Chocolate  <<< YAY!!!
Microalgae
Miso / Miso Soup
Pickles
Tempeh
Kimchi
Kombucha

Top Foods Containing Prebiotics

  1. Raw Chicory root: 64.6% prebiotic fiber by weight
  2. Raw Jerusalem artichoke: 31.5% prebiotics by weightchicory-2-high1.jpg
    (NOTE: Jerusalem artichoke is NOT the green globe artichoke you see at the store. It’s a totally different plant.)
  3. Raw Dandelion greens: 24.3% prebiotic fiber by weight
  4. Raw Garlic: 17.5% prebiotics by weight
  5. Raw Leek: 11.7% prebiotic fiber by weight
  6. Raw Onion: 8.6% prebiotics by weight
  7. Cooked Onion: 5% prebiotic fiber by weight
  8. Raw Asparagus: 5% prebiotics by weight
  9. Raw Wheat bran: 5% prebiotic fiber by weight
  10. Wheat flour, baked: 4.8% prebiotics by weight
  11. Raw Banana: 1% prebiotic fiber by weight.

Now, don’t forget that these are percentages. Or think of it as gram/100 grams. So if bananas have 1%

prebiotics by weight and you eat 100 grams of banana, you get 1 gram of prebiotics.

Anti- inflammatory products that work for myself are Zyflamend made by New Chapter and magnesium chloride. I purchase both from the Center for Holistic Medicine. Magnesium chloride is absorbed thru the skin much better than Epsom salts.

Ferment your own vegetables. Simplest is to pound cabbage with salt and let set on the counter for 5 to 30 days. Mercola.com has a good tutorial. Making your own kefir from "kefir grains" is awesome. Both are far Superior to anything you can buy.

GregRx-

I visited the first link...Wow ! thanks for that. A wealth of knowledge in a few words. I'm so on it ! I used to eat home made cabbage at my grandmas house every time we visited weekly. She always had a stinking tub of it in the basement. I loved it and always took some home for later. Now, because of you, I'm going to get my own stink on !

 

Secondly, I never heard of Kefir grains before this. very interesting history.

 

thanks again for the considerate shares

Ganoderma applanatum(Artist's Conk).  Related to Reishi mushrooms and grows all over Mi.  Makes a really good tea.  Great anti inflammatory properties and antimicrobial(good at killing candida) too.

Hen of the Woods(Grifola frondosa) also has anti inflammatory properties(not to mention anticancer and tumor).  It's coming into season now and can be huge(over 50 lbs).  It's one of the few mushrooms that can be directly frozen without any cooking or parboiling and can also be dried.  Can be eaten raw(powdered into caps without cooking).  Consult a Dr. before taking if you are on diabetic meds.  This mushroom can reverse diabetes or make it so you don't have to take your meds or reduce them drastically.

Wow, Reishi tea is going to be a standard nightly drink here.  I didn't realize that my back problems and gas pain at nite was caused by inflammation(whether it be candida or some other bad bacteria).  Had the best nite sleep in weeks and woke up feeling like a million bucks.  No waking up in the middle of the nite with gas pains(back pains) and no lower back problems when I woke up.  Can touch my toes without wincing and cracking!  I recommend it highly. 

I backed off on the cannatonic caps because I was focusing on them curing the anxiety, I didn't realize they were taking care of inflammation for me also.

You can put (or get) turmeric in capsules if you don't want to cook with it.  It is very powerful for use against inflamation.  Also, take some white willow bark capsules.  Very effective and not expensive.  Best of luck to you.t-pain.

Peace...

So I pounded my cabbage with (real) salt, used a mason jar and a loose fitting lid. Everyday I jammed it down into its own brine and in a couple days it was good, a few days later even better ! I haven't even cooked the slaw before eating it yet, just chomping raw(ish) with pleasure. I have a bunch of them going now with all kinds of different vegetables. no fancy equipment necessary. If mold is an issue I suggest covering the vegetables with more brine(salt/filtered water. Do not use unfiltered well or tap water. Clean jars with a bleach spray and rinse well. The stuff is ancient awesome!

Just realized the reishi tea(hot water extract) works on teh immune system.  Must've been arthritis as the cause of the inflammation.  You need to make a tincture to get the triterpenoids out of the fungus, which are the anti inflammatory components.  Started a tincture yesterday.

Wow... always learning neat new stuff from you guys.

 

I used to collect the Ganoderma applanatum when I was a kid, let them dry then varnish or paint them for little decorative shelves.

Who knew they were good for more that being fascinating to look at and serving as fodder for a childs creativity :)

motherwort

These results indicate that MW may be helpful in regulating inflammatory diseases.

 

 

lemon balm

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/24381585

We can conclude that the essential oil of M. officinalis L. possesses potential anti-inflammatory activities, supporting the traditional application of this plant in treating various diseases associated with inflammation and pain.

 

 

stinging nettle

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23092723

enlarged prostate http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3589769/

One of the most commonly used herbal remedies is nettle, which causes anti-inflammatory, anti-tumor, antiviral effects, modulating of immune system, and relieves the symptoms of benign prostatic hyperplasia due to the compounds it contains such as phytosterols, lignans and polysaccharides (5).

 

 

these plants are incredibly easy to grow.

eat your leafy greens people!

I am designing my 1st. herbal container garden for outdoors come Spring. I plan to plant a wide

diversity of healing herbs. My reason is for this is 3 fold... herbs to consume for my health, for my

compost health which in turn provides for all green things I grow and gardening is great therapy.

 

What I've discovered is that some of these marvelously healthy herbs/ plants are invasive. 

Please do your research especially if like me, you have limited space or you just don't want your

space taken over by one or two aggressive plants.
