According to my naturopath and NCM from the GAPS diet.  Fermented foods like saurkraut and such are good for your gut and help heal.  Then I've heard people say no fermented foods.  Your take?
 
Thanks

I eat them but I haven't noticed that they help my gut. They contain probiotics but regular sauerkraut in the grocery store will not be fermented. Only certain brands that are sold refridgerated are actually fermented. They usually say "live organisms" on the jar. Bubbie pickles are fermented and sold in the refridgerator section at my grocery store.
 
You can ferment foods yourself. I recommend the book "Wild Fermentation" or "nourishing Traditions".

Coming from a typical Korean family, we have a separate fridge full of Kimchi and fermented soy paste.

Some people will disagree that there's any correlation to this but countries that eat more fermented food their diet seems to have lower incidences of IBD.

Personally, I HATED eating fermented food b/c of its distinct smell. I never ate them as a child even though I lived in Korea when I was a kid.

My brother loves them and has pretty healthy gut from my stand point.

If you were to have some Kimchi, I'd wash the pieces of Kimchi in water before having them so the spices come off, so less irritation on your gut.
