Have you ever thought of trying to help your colitis symptoms with fermented foods? Read on if you have a spare moment, it might get you off the couch and down to the grocery store:) A big reason why people with ulcerative colitis (and a host of other medical struggles) ferment foods is to gain from the probiotics that are part of these types of foods. Some call them probiotics, others call them “good bacteria”, lets leave that one for you to decide ehhhh..:)
Here is what my sister wrote late a few weeks ago:

Here is the website of the woman in the youtube video as well: https://gapsontario.wordpress.com/
I’m excited to hear from others who have tried fermenting of your own foods, and if you feel like the probiotics that are involved and part of the foods have helped your ulcerative colitis.
So please drop me a line via a comment below if you have any thoughts, questions, or ideas on this topic.
Take care, and happy fermenting UC’ers,
I started site and the eNewsletter(you can join that below) shortly after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in October of 2008 with severe pancolitis (when my whole colon was inflamed).
For me, it was a very rough start with severe symptoms. Getting bounced from medication to medication was not easy or too helpful. But, I did meet another UC’er, changes several parts of my diet, and of course the rest is history.
