Fermented foods (think sauerkraut, yoghurt, sourdough) are full of friendly bacteria and active enzymes that help break down animal proteins and carbohydrates in the gut.

Fermented foods can be more effective than probiotic pills, says local fermented-food advocate Anna Surrey. You might have seen her at the local markets, or seen her foods for sale locally – her business is called Alive Food Byron Bay. Annie says many of her customers tend to struggle silently with gut problems, and she’s running a ‘luxury’ retreat over the June long weekend in Byron for women who want to improve their digestion, with a ‘belly-friendly’ menu.

You can learn the arts of fermentation combined with mindfulness and mind-body sessions, all designed to improve digestive health.
