Hi Judy. Sooo happy to hear you can teach us a thing or two. I am new to this (other than making kefir for 13 yrs) but I do love apple cider vinegar and sauerkraut and dill... and ::wriggles eyebrows up n' down:: wine.
It is great that you have joined our team and I am sure you are going to teach us a lot. Well done for tackling the problems after the pacemaker. Though antibiotics are essential they do not half mess up ones insides!

I was kind of shy to introduce myself but I've been responding a bit so I guess you'll want to know my credentials!!!
I had a pacemaker put in two years ago and was given major doses of antibiotics which threw my gut into a tizzy and my GI and metabolism ground to a halt. Then last year I learned about how the probiotics in some foods could help repair the damage and I've since been learning and experimenting with all different kinds of ferments. I've done water kefir (WK), milk kefir (MK), kombucha, kraut, kim chi, lacto-fermented veggies and miso. I am taking a year-long course to become a Fermentationist!
I put on 50# after my surgery, even though I was still Sparking consistently. I had been about 10# from goal when it happened. I am slowly making progress now and feel I've turned the corner.
Please don't hesitate to message me if you have question! I'm always happy to share what I've learned!
