I finally got in with a naturopathic doctor here and me doctor told me I was taking way too many supplements and told me to stay away from Kefir. I was getting so depressed because I felt like my symptoms were all coming back...well I didn't have any kefir in the last two days and now I feel great aggain. I can't belive how much gas that stuff gave me. My doc said it was not good to use espewcially in the first few weeks. I just wanted to let others know who might be using it in the early stages.
