SUMMARY: Following the May 26 Treesdale seminar, you wanted to know practically how to improve microbiome health. You now understand it exists, it is changeable, and it is behind 70% of immunity. So here it is: attend the Salad and Dressings WorkShop in Wexford, PA! You know you have got to nourish your trillions of microbiome beasties and that certain fats are best till the dust settles on the other oils and their associations to disease. For those unable to attend, read the prebiotic and probiotic discussion in this post for tips for those two true microbiome supporting salad components. If you are local, come learn how to put it all together!
SUMMARY: Sharing more Microbiome Awareness conversation from the May 26 seminar, so that all can benefit, even those unable to attend! Learn great microbiome support tips! Amaze yourself with how much you actually learned and know! Comment if I don’t touch on your thoughts; lets continue the conversation!
Background and more on our bio
Dana Grau and I spoke at the Microbiome Awareness Seminar. We explained what the microbiome is and included discussion of diet and lifestyle impact to the microbiome which affects its health. 70+ percent our immunity resides in the health of the microbiome and that microbial community then plays a key role in determining your health:
SUMMARY: Microbiome Awareness TMAO was summarized in the May 26th seminar, and I suggested condiment size portions for red meat regardless of meat quality (pastured or confined feed lot operations). Carnitine in red meat acts as an antioxidant and plays a crucial role in the mitochondria—the energy-producing structures in cells—notably in muscles, including heart muscle. But carnitine has a dark side — TMAO. This post shares TMAO follow-up so that all can benefit, even those unable to attend! A subsequent post will share more conversation from that evening, but TMAO is a lot of good information, and it deserves a post of its own.

Summary: Just sharing a fun educational event, that literally could change your health, wellness, and vitality, occurring this Sunday, February 28, 2016, in Pittsburgh should you be nearby. The FREE event is Pittsburgh’s Fermentation Festival; I’ll be attending and profiling ferment consumers and vendors for consideration in upcoming American Gut fermenting microbiome studies! Stop by and fill out the questionnaire!
Be a part of this unique FREE Ferment Consumer Profile Opportunity for American Gut fermenting microbiome studies and help further the understanding of the “How” and “Why” ferments modulate our immune system! For an added bonus… attend 5 workshops and learn how to ferment while you are at the festival. The workshops are led by an incredible battery of knowledge! I’ll be sharing how to make lactose-free grassfed yogurt that is part of the healing diet protocols (PALEO (some camps), SCD, GAPS, UMass IBD-AID). Learn why fermented and traditional foods is part of WHAT EATING REAL WHOLE FOODS LOOKS LIKE. For a start, read below for Cleveland Clinic’s 5 reasons why you should be consuming ferments.
