Take back control of your microbiome(gut) and achieve deep healing and immune system boosting by making your own delicious yogurt drinks at home. It is believed that around 80% of the immune system is derived from the incredible friendly bacterial colonies residing in the gastro intestinal tract and that those battling with disease, auto immune disorders and cancer often have a seriously compromised gut flora, which means their immune system is really struggling and needs balancing.
They could have small intestinal bacterial overgrowth (SIBO), a serious infection such as heliobacter pylori or ravaged by antibiotics or chemotherapy meaning that there are not enough friendly bacteria, but we can radically reverse these conditions with fermented products and one of the most profound is raw milk based yogurt drinks and colostrum.. Mothers milk!
There are a whole host of complaints which have their root in the microbiome which is out of balance, some clinical studies are found from the links:

Most probiotics capsules only contain at best 3 billion colony forming units per capsule, but with a microbiome containing possibly 100 trillion bacteria, we need some profound quantities of healthy probiotic bacteria to make any kind of difference to a flora so massive and this is what yogurt can do. The problem, however, is that fermented vegetable foods, while potent and beneficial, do not contain the correct type and therapeutic strength of probiotics necessary to destroy the more difficult pathogenic bacteria, viruses and fungi that have taken up residence within the intestines. (see the ‘Yogurt Benefits’ tab for details of the actual bacteria which can do the job.
SCDLIfestyle reckon that fermenting yogurt at home for 24 hours can result in the creation of 3 billion CFU /ml, meaning if you consume 200ml of yogurt drink you could be consuming 600 Billion CFU of healthy bacteria, that is an increase of a factor of 50! what capsule can give you that?
Don’t Chuck the Whey – it’s a Superfood!
We have designed MAFMaker as a drink rather than a thick yogurt because this makes use of the naturally occurring and powerful whey(liquid) part of feremented milk which would also reduce the volume of probiotics by up to 50%. Whey protein is fantastic for anyone who is looking to burn fat and build muscle. Whey is also high in enzymes Alpha-lactalbumin , Beta-lactoglobulin and Immunoglobulin proteins and the best way to get these immunity boosters is in their natural form, unpasteurised. Whey contains potassium, calcium, magnesium & phosphorous.
The most important minerals for the body in ionic form. Whey also makes a great source of electrolytes and is very hydrating. One of the great benefits of whey is that it can actually regenerate the intestinal flora, it actually feeds our gut microbes and nourishes the colon helping it to maintain the proper pH. In a study of 7606 children in 2011 their findings suggested that the protective effect of raw milk consumption on asthma might be associated with the whey protein fraction of milk.

While most commercially sold yogurts contain some living bacteria and might very loosely be referred to as “probiotic” for this reason, it’s definitely incorrect to think about all yogurts as being equivalent in terms of their probiotic benefits. For example, some yogurts in the marketplace may contain less than 1,000 bacteria per gram. While that number might sound large, it’s actually quite small when you are talking about bacteria.
By using Raw Milk and fermenting for 24 hours about 50% of the lactose has been consumed by the colonies, additionally Raw Milk is generally considered safe for those who are lactose intolerent, though it has not been clinically proven yet. Read Chris Kressor’s article on the ‘Benefits of Raw Milk and this one by Dr Axe ‘ If you’ve been told that drinking raw milk is dangerous, you’ve been mis-lead!‘ The CDC reports show an estimated 48 million food borne illnesses each year and only 42 (about 0.0005) are reported from those who drink fresh, unprocessed milk. As you can see, most concerns over raw milk have been overstated.
“Probiotic” is a term used to describe foods and supplements that contain living micro-organisms.
Yogurt-type probiotics are one of the most powerful immune supports you can give your body according to clinical studies.
Science tells us that poor gut health is linked to some serious diseases and Hippocrates said the same thing in 350BC!
The gastrointestinal microbiome and the immune system are closely tied, each influencing and being influenced by the other. The incomplete state of the immune system in germ-free (GF) conditions its normal maturation is driven by commensal microbes. Given these tight associations, it is not surprising that gut microbiota have been linked to pathologies of the immune system, notably allergies and autoimmune disorders. (from: Gut-Residing Segmented Filamentous Bacteria Drive Autoimmune Arthritis via T Helper 17 Cells, PUBMED 20620945)
Most commercial yogurts are chock-full of artificial colors, flavors, additives, and sugar, typically as fructose (high fructose corn syrup), which actually nourishes disease-causing bacteria, yeast, and fungi in your gut. Since your gut has limited real estate, this smothers your beneficial bacteria and gets you sick.” ~ Dr Joseph Mercola
Why We Need Probiotics
Our body contains about 100 trillion bacteria, mostly in your gut, which is more than 10 times the number of cells you have in your entire body. It’s now quite clear that the type and quantity of micro-organisms in your gut interact with your body in ways that can either prevent or encourage the development of many diseases.
A healthy microbiome is not only important for optimal digestion of food and absorption of nutrients, these bacteria also help your body produce vitamins, absorb minerals, aid in the elimination of toxins, and are responsible for a good part of your immune system and mental health, including your ability to resist anxiety, stress, and depression.

“It has been suggested that MAF can be formed by probiotic bacteria in a yogurt medium. Probiotic mixtures have been found to be helpful in various immune disturbances including ME/CFS.[Pubmed 12554797] ~ wikipedia”

Start slowly by drinking 10-20ml of MAFMaker drink, building up gradually through 50 to 100ml per day (0.5 bottle) or as ‘tolerated’ with food. Due to MAFMaker yogurt drink should be taken as part of a balanced nutritionally-based approach to health or as directed by a healthcare professional. If you have a mushroom allergy, don’t use pack no.3’s in your MAF Making.
Safety of Raw Milk
The Raw milk and the completed MAF Yogurt drinks MUST be stored in the refrigerator. Yogurt older than 8 days should be discarded. You should seek assurance from your Raw Milk supplier on their FSA status and read the advice on our Raw Milk Finder page.. There is a skin test from GAPS you can do to see if you might react to Raw Milk.
It is recommended that for MAFMAking you only use fresh milk within 2-3 days of milking, this is more for the quality of the end product than for safety concerns as the healthy bacteria in milk normally completely overcomes the bad bacteria within a few days.
GAPS and SCD Diets to Consider
The GAPS Diet, as it is commonly known, is a temporary way of eating (usually about 18 months) to re-balance and heal/seal the gut wall which halts the flood of toxins from pathogenic strains dominating the gut environment into the bloodstream causing an unpredictable mix of autoimmune symptoms. The diet is described in detail in Dr. Natasha Campbell-McBride MDs book Gut and Psychology Syndrome (panel left). Also see GAPS Food List and Recipes and the GAPS Faq.
The autoimmune disorders significantly alleviated or healed by the GAPS Diet ranges from the simply annoying seasonal allergies, to the more life altering conditions such as autism, fibromyalgia, MS, lupus, and the list goes on and on. However, it has been found that removal of dissacharide sugars(except honey and fruit), starches, grains and inclusion of Yogurt and bone broths radically improves gut health and is an essential part of GAPS.
The SCD Lifestyle (Specfic Carbohydrate Diet) is similar to GAPS and designed to help people heal from leaky gut (Intestinal Permeability) and advise avoiding various foods, that is until it’s healed, they call the main problem foods the four horseman: Milk, Eggs, Nuts, Grains, Excessive fruit and Honey (Read about fructose malabsorption here). Yogurt and yogurt drinks are legal fortunately.
They have a book available and an extensive A- Z list of foods which they deem to be legal or illegal. The diet is simple in theory, if somewhat difficult in practice. The idea behind it is to exclude the foods that disease-creating bacteria feed on in the gut so that these bacteria die off and allow the gut to heal itself.
For Maximum Absorption of MAFMaker to increase MAF Count
MAFMaker yogurt drink should swished around the mouth for 15 seconds and also gargled a few seconds before swallowing to enable greater absorption through the tonsillar ring. Also take 5000iu Vitamin D3 a day.
What to expect, Die off of bad bacteria
It is possible that you may experience detox symptoms such as brain fog, hot/cold flushes, low-grade flu like symptoms, stool colour changes. This is most likely an initial die-off of bacterial overgrowth, things will settle down though, reduce the quantity if too extreme, and gradually increase over days, but don’t quit, it’s important to find a way through this stage, drinking plenty of clean water helps too.

What is MAF?MAF is a sugar protein that acts as a Macrophage Activating Factor (MAF) in the immune system. It is part of the Active Vitamin D Molecule (1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D3), produced in the liver, is completely natural and the body expects it. Many research papers have been published that demonstrate MAF activates Macrophages in both in vivo and in vitro studies. Macrophages function in both non-specific defense (innate immunity) as well as help initiate specific defence mechanisms (adaptive immunity) of vertebrate animals. Their role is to phagocytise (engulf and then digest) cellular debris and pathogens, either as stationary or as mobile cells. They also stimulate lymphocytes and other immune cells to respond to pathogens. They are specialized phagocytic cells that attack foreign substances, infectious microbes and cancer cells through destruction and ingestion. A macrophage is a large white blood cell that is an important part of our immune system. The word macrophage literally means 'big eater.' It is an amoeba-like organism, and its job is to clean our body of microscopic debris and invaders. A macrophage has the ability to locate and 'eat' particles such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites. Macrophages are born from white blood cells called monocytes, which are produced by stem cells in our bone marrow. Monocytes move through the bloodstream, and when they leave the blood, they mature into macrophages. They live for months, patrolling our cells and organs and keeping them clean. Another fascinating aspect of a macrophage is its ability to know which cells to destroy and which ones to leave alone. Healthy, living cells within our body have a particular set of proteins on their outer membrane. They are essentially ID tags for our cells. This is how our immune system recognizes our own cells versus foreign bodies. The MAF molecule is part of the larger Vitamin D process, and to work effectively, sufficient levels of vitamin D should be available. The vitamin D that the body finds easiest to assimilate is that produced in sunlight on bare skin. Vitamin D3 capsules or tablets should be taken where sunlight is deficient, up to 5000 iu per day. Vitamin D is a fat covered molecule so a healthy intake of good quality virgin oils such as olive, coconut or organic dairy produce such as MAFMaker yogurt drink may help the immune system. Many autistic children suffer from intestinal problems, so a diet that excludes dairy and glucose products has been shown to offer relief from intestinal problems for many patients, tho be aware most of these are pasteurised which de-natures the material. Certain probiotic yoghurt types can help to re-balance the intestinal flora, and by fermenting the culture for 24 hrs ferments out the lactose and casein elements during production and includes healthy bacterial strains that will encourage the activation of macrophages via the intestinal tract. Good results have been seen by using the two variants of macrophage activation with MAF yogurt. While there are no required industry standards for labeling a yogurt as "probiotic," a commonly adopted voluntary standard in the industry is at least 1,000,000 living bacteria per gram of yogurt, and we're aiming for many times that figure with MAFMaker. Since measurement of living versus dead bacteria in a yogurt can be complicated, most companies also report the live bacteria content of their yogurt in terms of "cfu" or "colony forming units. CFUs are best thought of as viable bacterial cells that capable of multiplying and forming larger colonies of bacteria. It's also worth noting here that in scientific notation, the number one million (1,000,000) is typically written as 106. So you might see a phrase like "106 CFUs" on package information about yogurt. This phrase tells you that the yogurt contained at least 1,000,000 viable bacterial cells at the time when it was manufactured. The use of fermented foods by ancestral cultures to preserve food, enhance nutritional value, and protect health goes back thousands of years and spans the globe. The practice served to significantly bolster immunity and increase the longevity of traditional societies as consumption of these probiotic rich foods introduced a constant stream of beneficial bacteria into the gut on a daily basis which improved digestion and nutrient absorption, discouraged pathogenic activity, and maintained top notch intestinal health. We’ve only recently begun to understand the extent of the gut flora’s role in human health and disease. Among other things, the gut flora promotes normal gastrointestinal function, provides protection from infection, regulates metabolism and comprises more than 75% of our immune system. Dysregulated gut flora has been linked to diseases ranging from autism and depression to autoimmune conditions like Hashimoto’s, inflammatory bowel disease and type 1 diabetes. Unfortunately, several features of the modern lifestyle directly contribute to unhealthy gut flora:
- Antibiotics and other medications like birth control and NSAIDs
- Diets high in refined carbohydrates, sugar and processed foods
- Diets low in fermentable fibers
- Dietary toxins like wheat and industrial seed oils that cause leaky gut
- Chronic stress
- Chronic infections

|Radio- and chemo protective||Upregulates glutathione and certain glycoproteins that help regulate immune responses, including interleukin-4, interleukin-10, and interleukin-12||Downregulates interleukin-6 (a cytokine involved in chronic inflammation and age-related diseases)||Inhibits tumor necrosis factor (TNF) alpha inhibitor, NF-kappaB, epidermal growth factor receptor, and more|
The problem, however, is that fermented foods, while potent, do not contain the correct type and therapeutic strength probiotics necessary to destroy pathogenic bacteria, viruses and fungi that have taken up residence within the intestines.Fermented foods contain lactic acid based probiotics, in other words, strains like Bifidobacterium lactis, Lactobacillus acidophilus, and Lactobacillus bulgaricus that do not aggressively attack pathogens. So what’s missing from fermented foods that a person on a gut healing diet really needs? According to Natasha Campbell-McBride MD, author of Gut and Psychology Syndrome and creator of the GAPS Diet, the soil based probiotics, and in particular, the strain Bacillus subtilis are a very important piece of the gut healing puzzle. While specific strains have been studied for certain therapeutic applications, generally it is best to make sure the probiotic you choose contains a variety of beneficial bacterial species from each of the three main probiotic types: Lactobacillus Bifidobacterium Soil based organisms (SBOs) Bacillus subtilis is a soil based organism discovered by German microbiologists during WWII. It was used to protect troops from dysentary and typhoid. Since that time, B. subtilis has been studied in depth all over Europe and Asia. Important subspecies to B. subtilis have been identified. However, if your gut is currently imbalanced and/or you are suffering from autoimmune disease or gastrointestinal disorders, you really need the help of soil based probiotics to help resolve the situation. The lactic acid based probiotics in fermented foods need a cleaning crew consisting of powerful soil based organisms to come through and clean up the mess before they can effectively take over dominance once again.
