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.  🙂

THE BENEFITS OF TIBICOS CULTURED DRINKS with HONEY

by John F. Ednie – Tibibev Inc. – Toronto – Canada

Unique, Organic, Healthy

History

Tibicos Cultured drinks has been in production for over two thousand years. Many food historians trace the origins back to China and Turkey.

Tibicos Cultured drinks are a live, friendly bacterial culture, with similar cousins in the digestive organs of the human body.

Tibicos Cultured beverage is not a soda pop, though similar in taste when flavours are added to it.
Positives for Your Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Buying Customers

Customers who consume Tibicos Cultured beverages report improved digestion.
This adds to the healthy life style associated with consuming fruit and vegetables.
Medical Benefits

Tibicos Cultured beverages are not a “magic elixir” that will heal all digestive ailments, rather they are a benefit to the human digestive system which will help build up healthy bacteria necessary in the assimilation of nutrients from food.

Heavily processed foods strip away most of the beneficial bacterial in the human digestive system.

Tibicos Cultured drinks are known for assisting the body in absorbing the good nourishment from food.

Out of all areas of the grocery store, Tibicos Cultured drinks fit best in the produce section because:

– All vegetable content
– Raw and untreated, similar to fruit or lettuce
– Needs special care: refrigeration.

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.

Ann Payne’s Caveman Foods Ltd Has Ancient Vegetarian Lineage

Toronto, November 11, 2014 — Confused about how water kefir fits into a Paleo diet? It all depends on how we define Paleo: do we mean a diet high in protein and dried fruits, or a diet similar to what a cave man or woman might have eaten? Ann Payne’s Caveman Foods Ltd’s mission is to reintroduce some of the exotic flavours and techniques that have dropped out of the modern diet, such as our raw tibicos, or water kefir culture.

Fermentation is as old as fruit. Indeed, yeasts and bacteria are some of the oldest life forms known, and so it is to be expected that these life forms would be the first to enjoy sugar! Birds, horses, dogs — or even wasps — often seek out fallen fermented apples or grapes— when we enjoy a bottle of Ann Payne’s water kefir, we are in the company of many species who like fermented foods.

“Most people realize that ancient people ate a wide range of plant products; seeds, roots, leaves and tree bark — less well known is that the most frequent method of food preservation was fermentation! Long live ancient vegetable foods, and all their natural fermented variety!”

Craft Beverage Fermenting company Ann Payne’s Caveman Foods Issues Offer of Free Product to Researchers Is there a link between unpasteurized fermented foods and gut bacteria?

September 2, 2014 — (Toronto, ON) — Gourmet foodies have long been searching out the fresh, unpasteurized drink known as water kefir for its taste and unparalleled ability to combine with food, but what is less generally known is that unpasteurized fermented drinks also have the ability to control sugar cravings.

“The Weston A. Price organization in the USA has done a terrific job of explaining to people how raw, fermented foods help maintain a healthy weight and a strong immune system,” said Leslie Payne-Zimmer, of Toronto-based Ann Payne’s Caveman Foods, Ltd, “and we have had anecdotes from our customers telling us that our drink has helped them lose those last few pounds. However, until the recent research into the effect of diet on specific gut bacteria, the connection between controlling a sweet tooth and our drink was a little opaque.”

Given the importance of maintaining a healthy weight and a strong immune system, employees at Ann Payne’s Caveman Foods Ltd have together announced the following initiative: our company offers the following to any Canadian researchers working in this area — up to twenty cases (or 240 individual servings) of our raw, unpasteurized drink sh
ipped free to your university or lab for study.

“The focus of our facility is really on brewing a high-quality, gourmet, non-alcoholic beverage,” noted the company’s owner, Leslie Payne-Zimmer, “If we can give back to the community by helping science, of course we would be thrilled to do our part.”
