Lyme Disease and Probiotics

A woman I know recently went to go get tested for Lyme disease.  Many of her friends had had it, her dogs had it, and she thought it was likely she had the disease in a not very serious form.  However, when she got her test results back, she found out that not only did she have Lyme disease, but that she had twelve different varieties!

Her doctor was shocked and she was shocked too.  How could she be so sick and exhibit no symptoms?  Her doctor called her back to the office every week just to make sure she didn’t have a fever and he was sure she ought to be in hospital.

This woman is also an avid cultured honey drinker and she tells me she is sure that it’s the cultured honey drink that helped her stay so healthy!

So let this be a reminder that it’s always important to give your body the love it deserves with some probiotics and you’ll keep reaping the rewards.  🙂

Probiotics’ Health Benefits

A new study by Texas researchers has shown that probiotics can be helpful in treating conditions like autism.  Female mice were fed a high-fat diet and mated with male mice on a regular diet.  Some of the children of these mice had behaviors and symptoms similar to social disorders like autism.  The researchers found that the affected mice had a low concentration of gut bacteria (or probiotics).  When probiotics were re-introduced into their stomachs, the mice’s symptoms lessened.  While this is years away from clinical use, it is exciting nonetheless.

Tibibev’s cultured honey drink may be a delicious way to get more pro-biotics in your diet!

Ann Payne’s Caveman Foods New Website stresses Canadian Headquarters

Toronto, October 28, 2014 — Ann Payne’s Caveman Foods has unveiled a new website: annpaynescavemanfoods.ca. This replaces the previous web site, eatcavemanfood.com, although the old web site is still up, during this transition.

This move has been made to clarify some confusion in the United States, where there was some confusion over a marketing subsidiary with a similar name — there was an assumption — even by people with access to the labels which say “Made in Canada” — that the beverage itself was brewed in the United States.

“While the source of the new web site name was mostly administrative, as we move into marketing water kefir for export — as well as continuing to serve our domestic market — we felt that our new web site would clarify any confusion about where the water kefir is brewed and bottled.”

Water kefir is a pre-historic method of using friendly yeasts and bacteria to turn sugar water into a low-calorie, high enzyme, fresh and raw drink; water kefir is naturally non-alcoholic. Ann Payne’s Caveman Foods Ltd has perfected a method of preserving the effervescence and vitality of this historic refreshment.
