Update: My Kefir Diary. Is this evidence of gut repair???? Not just weight loss!

As I continue religiously with my daily Coconut water kefir, I have noticed something of interest.

Being fully Coeliac now, cow dairy,mustard, soya, legume, celery, fennel, gluten free cous cous intolerant, as well as rice intolerant... sulphites intolerant...

Something had changed!

Over the holiday I ate lobster, but was not able to make my own mayonnaises, so risked eating commercial mayo out of a pot, it was not the gluten free version, it was the normal version that contains mustard.

In the past it has made me I'll.

Well...nothing happened!

I was expecting to get I'll, but did not.

Well, to make sure, I ate some this evening, and I have not had an adverse reaction again!!! I seem to be able to cope with it now, when before I most certainly did not.

I can only take this as positive evidence that the probiotic Kefir is having a positive effect on my gut biome!

Well worth it.

Would love to hear how you make your coconut kefir.

I have suggested several times on these forums that taking pro-biotics may be more beneficial than total abstinence from gluten.

Also, the astronomic rise in people suffering some sort of problem with gluten is probably down to the genetic modification of wheat rather than gluten per se.

more likely due to it being sprayed with glyphosate!

Yes crimple, it is a combination of things. When anything is tested for safety, it is tested in isolation. For instance, they may test mobile phone radiation and say that it is at a safe level. But they don't consider that it is combined with radiation from other sources such as DECT phones, wi-fi devices, and microwave ovens.

This video is worth sharing!

Hi Hippo,

I too am horrified at the electromagnetic (e/m) stew that we live in - it suppresses our immune systems. Just for the record, however, the e/m radiation from a microwave only emanates for about 1 inch around the seal around it's door. So keep away from the "open" button until it has stopped working. I guess if you are hovering over the "cancel" button you are out of luck.

And here is another little nugget: If you live in a remote area don't congratulate yourself that you do not have many cell phone towers around you. When you do make a cell phone call YOUR phone has to put out more e/m radiation than it would in a big city area because it needs more energy to find and connect to that one tower. Can't win can we.

Organic only is the way forward. It costs a little more but oh so good for us.

I’ve had a similar experience as a result of drinking celery juice on an empty stomach every morning and drinking apple cider vinegar every evening (also no sign of a cold so far this winter)

I am trying beef bone broth. Have had some every day for the last week. Don't know if it has made any difference so far. Sticking with gluten, egg, chicken and lacto free for now.

Yes, definitely! This is what fermented foods do, heal your gut. :)

Great news for you well worth the effort.

Brilliant news and idea, might also be from the coconut water as well? I put nearly a teaspoon of coconut oil in my daily coffee it makes it lovely and creamy and I do think it's helping my weight loss/gut health

Best wishes for continued good health 😊

We should put up a shrine the the Blessed Coconut!

I have a very bad "gut," too, and my doctor put me in a drug called "Welchol." Stopped everything dead in their tracks and I am now free of those awful symptoms. I hope yours continues to work for you! I'm happy for you!

But Welchol is a statin? Do you have high cholesterol?

Silver_Fairy,

I don't think it is (technically) a statin.

Colesevelam is one of the bile-acid sequestrants, which along with niacin and the statins, are the three main types of cholesterol-lowering agents.

Thanks helvella. I was wondering really why the GP should prescribe a statin for diarrhoea, but have just read the link.

Great info 👍 can you please write on here which coconut kefir you buy (if indeed you buy it) thanks 😊

Hi Mandy

I brew it myself. Buying Kefir in small, hard plastic bottles that can only contribute to landfill, and can become very expensive.

It's easy to make and you have 100% control of what you put in it, which to me is very reassuring.

I am trying to figure out how to upload my SOP (I believe it's what it is called, a Standard Operating Procedure!)

It is a combination of visual pictures and a written document.

I shall figure it out so that everybody can share it and benefit from it.

Hi, thank you for your swift reply. I was going to buy the kefir making kit that Lakeland’s sell, but just haven’t got round to it. I am keen to get going, would you mind emailing it to me if you have trouble loading it on here? My address is: <redacted personal email>

It would be a better idea to remove your email address from the post and message Poppy_the_cat
