When we think of healing we often go straight to the physical; healing our bones, our skin, our digestive system – yet, sometimes we need a little bit of self-indulgence or as its known ‘chocolate therapy’ to support the healing process.
Naturopaths will often look to the gut when determining the origin of many types of disease. Prebiotics by definition is foods or ingredients that selectively promote the growth or activity of beneficial microorganisms (gut bacteria), and are different to the bacteria themselves called probiotics. Prebiotic foods in this recipe include; onion, garlic, asparagus, chickpeas and the vegetables in general. Promoting the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria has flow-on effects to improve digestive function, the immune system, mental health, skin health and almost every aspect of health.
