PROBIOTIC-RICH MISO: A SERIOUS FOOD AS MEDICINE GAME CHANGER!
After years of abusing our bodies, many of us, like myself, need forgiveness foods. A food that is a serious game changer. And if miso could talk, I think of it saying, “Don’t worry, dear one. I know you got lost, but I got you covered. You are home now…..it’s going to be alright….”
For many of us, transitioning from cooked foods to live foods, or jumping head first into a 100% raw food cleanse, can be dramatic. Starting off slowly with miso allows your gut environment to gently adapt while repairing and rebuilding the delicate intestinal flora. This serious medicinal food helps tremendously if you have problems with gas and bloating.
The probiotic rich miso we use in our Food As Medicine Healing System has no relationship to the puny, pale bowl of miso soup plopped in front of you in a Japanese restaurant. This is made from a lifeless powder, often with MSG added to enhance flavor.
The probiotic rich miso we use at Diet For Living School is vegan, unpasteurized, organic and GMO free. It is created from organic grains or beans such as barley, chickpea, adzuki, rice, or the classic soybean, then fermented with a natural Koji culture, converting it into a miso paste. We consider legumes and grains to be very hard to digest. But the fermentation process breaks them down, also called ‘predigestion’, making them easy on the body. Research has found that the longer the miso is fermented the more potent it is in inhibiting the development of cancerous tumors. Genistein, a plant-based isoflavone in miso, has been found to reduce cancer cells ability to form new blood vessels. Unpasteurized miso that is aged 180 days or more is the best.
Since I am a cancer survivor, I don’t kid around. 50% of cancers return within 5 years if dramatic diet change is not made. I am faithful with my relationship to probiotic rich unpasteurized miso…. daily for 18 years. I add it to salad dressings, use it to make vegan nut cheeses, cracker spreads and, of course, our ‘Many Miracles Miso Soup’ (recipe in my e-book “Diet For Living Cancer Free/What Worked For Me” on Amazon here: https://bit.ly/CancerFreeEbook )
When you take our 100% OnLine Certified Holistic Nutrition Coach/Cancer Coach Program (HERE) , we teach you how to make yummy healing foods with unpasteurized miso, as well as which are the best brands to buy and where to find them.
When I talk about fermented foods, many people will ask me if I recommend drinking Kombucha tea. The answer is no, not in the early days of healing and restoring the body’s digestive system. Kombucha is too effervescent. Which means it is too fizzy…. too lively. It can add to problems with gas and bloating. Miso is uniquely calming and grounding. As the intestinal flora begins to heal, you can experiment with Kombucha much later if you’re a big fan.
Some of the first records of miso date back to 7th century Japan. Created by Buddhist monks, it has remained an integral part of Japanese culture and it is associated with good health and longevity where people often live disease-free past 100 years old.
Probiotic-rich miso is high in plant-based protein and all the B vitamins. It inhibiting the development of cancerous tumors. It helps detoxify the body…..eliminates free radicals….alkalizes the bloodstream and facilitates the removal of heavy metals. And of course we all need that….Miso also improves immune function, helps regulate mood, controls appetite and adds to better cognitive health. All these benefits make this true superfood a much respected and loved contribution to the Food As Medicine Healing System.
Although it has taken a couple thousand years, modern scientific inquiry has begun to catch up, finding that the use of miso can be a potent Food As Medicine Medicine in the fight against a variety of Western aliments and digestive problems.
It’s Time To Elevate Miso To The “Top of the Food Pyramid”.
