Most know that colon health, in fact, all health relies heavily on balanced bowel bacterial activity. The bacteria in your bowels outnumber the cells in your body by a factor of 10 to one: 100 trillion, about 6 cups of bacteria, line your intestinal tract. At least that’s the way we’re made.
There are many ways we can interfere with bowel bacteria production and function. Antibiotics, every one knows about but other factors are heavy metal and pesticide toxicity, electro-magnetic radiation, alcohol, sugar and caffeine addiction to name a few.
Here is a recipe for rebuilding bacteria and nourishing the mucous membrane of the bowel lining. Its delicious.
- 250gms butter, raw is best.
- 1/2 cup coconut oil (virgin is best)
- 12 capsules of colostrum or equivalent in powder such as 1/2 to 1 tspn Probioplex (Metagenics brand)
- 12 capsules of Pro-Biotic, or equivalent of freindly bacteria such as 1/2 of 1 tspn of lactobacilis powder
- 1 tablespoon raw unfiltered/unheated honey.
Mix butter and olive oil/coconut oil in blender until smooth. Add friendly bacteria and colostrum (open caps). Add honey. Blend again.
Eat a tablespoon every day for three days and just 1 teaspoon from then on. If this makes you feel nauseas or headachey, it means your liver needs to catch up with this much fat consumption. Sip some bitter herbs like Swedish Bitters straight away and the queasy feeling should subside.
Keep it in the fridge and never heat the mixture. It’s a great addition to smoothies.
