    I found a coconut based creamy kefir drink at whole foods this week and I like it, seems to help gut, its not as tasty as dairy based ones but even the goats dairy causes more pain in me the next day.

    That's great simonedb. Let us know in a few weeks if it helps you. Hope it does. I'm going to try to make mine tonight from freeze-dried grains.

    the kefir is helping some constipation I was having (such a pleasant topic).
    HOwever I have also started to use a little kombucha tea at the same time and I think that helped too, but too much of that and i feel like detoxing and stomach will hurt.
    My gut hasnt hurt that much lately, I go thru phases where have had bad gerd over the years, have used activated charcoal capsules for that and avoiding eating at night.

    I read about Kefir from Burrascano MD book on Lyme treatment. Kefir is a MUST for recovery.

    I loved the store brands. Goat's milk variety was different, but I got use to it.

    I ordered a Kefir kit: http://www.fotvn.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=16

    The website says that kefir bacteria (probiotics) thrive on lactose (milk sugar). It can be mixed with other milks (almond, oat, hazelnut, coconut) but it needs to ferment on dairy.

    If 70-80% of the immune system is in the gut, probiotics should make a huge difference.

    It should arrive today. I can't wait to have germs for breakfast!
