Today's topic isn't pleasant but good health is an important part of being sustainable.
I finished up a long and strong round of antibiotics this past Sunday. They did the trick with the sinus infection I was fighting so I was glad to take them, but they also did a number on my digestive system. There wasn't any warnings about that on the label but I strongly feel I've destroyed some good bacteria while I was ridding myself of the bad stuff. I'll spare you the really awful details, Suffice it to say, I know where every cobweb is lurking in my bathroom since I've been spending so much time in there.
Now I'm trying to fight back to health by building up some good bacteria. I woke up the sleeping kefir grains in the fridge and was glad to find I still have some sauerkraut. I don't have any homemade yogurt as my doe is dry but it's on the grocery list.
And I'm curious about how other homesteaders get good bacteria going in their bodies. Fermentation is a fascinating thing to me! Please share your experiences!
