There are roughly 10 times more bacterial cells than human cells in the human body. I like to think of bacteria as the body’s garbage men. Bacteria feed on dead and damaged tissue and eliminate them from the body. The action of bacteria in the gut is necessary for proper digestion and elimination – when the concentration is low, we experience digestive problems including irritable bowel syndrome, heartburn, indigestion and constipation.
Even the brain requires bacteria to detoxify, and it does not function properly without adequate amounts of bacteria. People with decreased bacterial count tend to experience mental symptoms such as depression, frustration and rage.
Some bacteria is pathogenic, in fact we have some pathogenic bacteria on and in our bodies at all times. Pathogenic bacteria are harmless in small amounts, and can cause severe detoxification/elimination, disease or even death in large amounts – especially when not balanced with the different types of bacteria.
By eating fresh raw grass-fed meat, free-range chicken and fresh or fermented dairy products, we introduce the proper balance of bacteria for maintaining excellent health. While it’s true that raw meat and chicken can cause food poisoning, it’s not likely because if there are too much pathogenic bacteria for an individual, the meat will smell rotten to them.
Specifically, when meat is cooked, bacteria breed more rapidly, and humans are not alerted to the presence of a harmful amount of bacteria because our instinct through the sense of smell is hampered by the cooking. That’s why people get food poisoning from cooked meat, not raw meat.
Raw grass-fed dairy will sour, supporting the growth of more beneficial bacteria, which naturally keeps pathogenic bacteria in check. Soured milk is a very good source of friendly bacteria and it’s a superior source for replenishing the bacterial count in those who eat a lot of cooked food or take medical drugs of any kind. On the other hand, cooked (pasteurized) dairy will rot, making it even more dangerous than the fresh variety.

Bacteria love you, and if you love them too, they can help you to live a long, healthy, disease-free life.
