What is "Gut Health"?
What does a healthy gut mean to you? Is it the lack of gas, bloating and discomfort in your belly? What about brain fog, skin issues, or headaches? Research is showing over 170 diseases are connected to our gut, and almost 90% of ALL disease can be traced back to an unhealthy gut! On the flip side, a healthy gut seems to also be at the foundation of vibrancy and optimal health.
On a basic level, the gut is where we take in and process all aspects of food...everything from the enzymes that appear the moment we smell food cooking, to proper digestion and assimilation of the nutrients from the food we eat. The gut is the place where we break that food down into information our body can utilize, such as fats, proteins, carbs, and sugars.
But, it plays a much larger role than digestion........ there's so much more to come!
It’s overwhelming how many maladies and diseases in the body originate in the gut!
Did you know your gut;
Helps develop the immune system right from birth
Is the largest endocrine organ, secreting over 30 hormones
And, it has a brain of its own, meaning it can operate completely independent of your other brain…. the one in your skull.
The gut plays a large role in our immunity, hormone regulation, blood sugar, and the health of our brain!
The gut is actually called the “second brain” because it has more neurons than the spinal cord.
This would imply that the gut has a much larger function than just digestion.
Your gut and your first brain are in constant communication. The gut passes along signals to the brain and vice versa. It alerts the brain of any potential stress or danger. Your gut is your largest sensory organ, and it’s communicating information to you all the time.
Think of your gut as the gatekeeper. Even though it’s technically inside your body, the gut determines what enters your body from the outside world. It determines what gets let in and what should be kept out.

I really enjoyed Briony Kean’s ‘Flavours of Kombucha’ class on Tuesday night. I’ve been making Milk Kefir for the probiotic benefits for a couple of years now and wanted to try Kombucha as an alternative to Kefir. Briony specialises in digestive health and is particularly passionate about the health benefits of fermented foods. Briony has a relaxed, friendly, and enthusiastic style of teaching, which made for a fun and interactive hour. Briony confidently addressed a host of different questions from me and my fellow class participants, demonstrating her knowledge of the fermentation process and other aspects of digestive health. I’ll probably go to the Sauerkraut one next. Highly recommended!

Loved going to Briony’s class. I learnt so much, can’t wait to attend another one!
I had the best day at Briony's sauerkraut workshop! She is so knowledgeable and made the day fun.
There's so much to learn about fermenting. I can't wait to try my kraut in a few weeks.
