milks Kefir suitablity for MSers?

Postby zjac020 » Wed Nov 27, 2013 1:22 am

Hi all,

i cut out dairy as most diets recommend cutting out milk and its relatives for MS and because I tested as having high intolerance to all dairy in the IGg tests (I must say I have noticed better digestions). I've read kefir uses up lactose and "process" they proteins in milk including casein (I also had intolerance to that)....so I'm wondering, is it safe to include in the diet?

Let me know your opinions guys. thanks

I drink a little goats milk kefir, I also worry it might not be good for the MS but I'm just about to start growing water kefir instead which might be a better option for you too xx

If you want probiotics, why not do kombucha, which is a fermented tea - no dairy, tastes like tangy apple cider. Very easy to make at home, also can be purchased in some health food stores.

I've looked into the other kefirs and truth us water kefir seemed simpler (preparation wise) as far as I recall.

Which one of thw three has the highest number of friendly bacteria?

Thx

I think the milk kefir has but people tend to drink more of the water one so get a lot more.
Eat some raw low heated unpasturised fermented veg like saurkraut (has to be from a special health store though not supermarket) take raw cider vinegar daily and I take a good probiotic called bio kult but I'm not sure if it's available in the uk only. (Contains lactobacillus plantarium ) which I've heard is good.
