I'm so thankful that I had some homemade yogurt tonight. I made a smoothie with it a couple of minutes ago and I think my stomach is settling down enough for me to get some sleep soon. My GIT was doing really well all day until I had dinner: beef stew with kale in it and also mashed cauliflower. Kale and cauliflower are cruciferous vegetables which give many people GIT distress. And I ate both of those in one sitting and boy, am I in distress. I'm not thrilled at the prospect of eliminating all those vegetables from my diet. In fact, I'm pretty sure that it is not really an option. I need the vitamins and minerals I get from them but I don't need the digestive problems (because I also need to sleep and I need to not feel like shit). I know very well that there's a serious imbalance in my GIT tract and that's why I can't handle so many foods. That is why homemade yogurt is so helpful to me. More helpful than any other probiotic pill or powder that I have ever taken. I need to be more diligent about making and drinking my bone broth and the yogurt. I don't really have a choice in the matter. I tend to not order the bones and the raw milk to make this stuff because it's pretty expensive and it's pretty inconvenient to go and pick it up but I have to approach it as medicine. I think it would be more worth my while to put the money into whole food supplements than into pill supplements. So that's what I'm going to focus on.
