As I continue my own Kefir journey, suffering from Hashimoto's, being coeliac and having other issues, I have only been on probiotic Kefir for not quite 8 weeks.
My own personal results and progress astound me. My mother is also benefiting tremendously...as are others. I have sent some kefir to a dear friend who suffers from PMR amongst other things; she too is reporting tremendous results, after only two weeks!!!
For 18 months her CRP levels have remained high, with all the steroids she takes having very little if no effect.
Well, in the first week of taking kefir she felt well enough to walk the dogs...and now after her biweekly blood tests, her results have come back as having a lower CRP reading, intact the lowest she has had in 18 months! We are both thrilled. She has done nothing else to have altered her regime... It is definitely the kefir.
In fact my own blood tests performed 3 weeks after starting to take kefir, showed "puzzlingly lowered CRP", that my own consultant could not explain.
Anybody with inflammatory issues needs to attack it via healing/ improving the gut biome, this is without doubt. No amount of medication will perform as well as Kefir- a sweeping statement perhaps for some.
Understanding the hugely pivotal influence the gut biome has on our general health is still vastly underestimated and not sufficiently understood.
If you want to take back control, educate yourself on gut health, the gut biome, live probiotics such as kefir, water based Coconut Kefir if you cannot tolerate cow dairy. As the tee shirt says "Just Do It!".
