    Hi Nancy - You can make either yogurt or kefir. Kefir has more probiotics than yogurt, and also has several different types of yeast which actually compete with candida and help to keep candida in check. Kefir also is high in B vitamins.

    Kefir ferments on milk sugar (lactose), so it can be made at home. The key is to not let if over-ferment. Kefir has 10 probiotics. Add it to a smoothie and it will help to transition to its flavor.

    Also, if you have an appendix, its a source of probiotics that helps the colon recover after a bout of diarrhea. The appendix has a purpose after all.

    The best kefir is made from live grains, rather than packaged dried grains you can buy in the store. Live grains can't be purchased in the store so you need to look around the internet for someone selling them. You can try either Dom's kefir site or the KefirLady.
