Does anybody drink Kefir? Do you make it yourself or buy it off a shelf in a grocery store?

I buy it off the shelf but worked with someone that makes it. He actually prefers the kind made with water. More like club soda. I think it's helped me.

I make my own milk kefir from kefir grains. I can't make water kefir though. Do you need special grains for Water Kefir? I just rinsed some milk grains out and added them to sugared water. It never cultured.

I buy it at the store and love it! I have no idea how to make it.

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives means the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand Surgery 6/10/1994 Mastectomy: Left, Right Surgery 12/20/1994 Reconstruction (left); Reconstruction (right) Surgery 6/10/1995 Lymph node removal: Left Surgery 9/20/2013 Reconstruction (left); Reconstruction (right)

I've cut down a lot and just use it occasionally, as I do Greek yogurt.   My ND seems to feel that a bit of organic dairy is beneficial for the calcium.  I've cut out so much cheese, butter, cream, etc., I probably do 20% of the dairy I did in the past.

Funny y'all mention this product, I bought some a few weeks ago for my dog that had a bad case of tummy trouble after getting into some trash.

I took a little taste of it, this was the plain, no flavor - yuck!  But... the dogs love it.

As far as dairy, are there articles about not having dairy while going through this whole business?
