Can anyone tell me what you use to make non-dairy kefir? I'm on the candida diet and I do eat dairy kefir and organic plain yogurt. I like to get raw milk for these two things but I can't always get to SC to get it. I'm feel like getting off dairy would help with the candida.

Coconut water Kefir....
Looking for clarification--does the coconut water need special treatment if it is to be cultured with milk kefir grains?  I am confused...and have a batch sitting in my fridge right now...

 


I believe we can excrete the toxins safely and gradually by supporting our natural detoxification pathways with whole food nutrients and rebalancing the gut microbials. Avoiding toxins and immune assaults helps to make candida obsolete naturally so it doesn't keep returning again and again and again...

~for topical relief, consider coconut oil, kefir, yogurt, ACV, baking soda, Epsom salt baths, lavender essential oil. (each separately)

These are not curative, just suppressive of the symptoms (manifestation of gut imbalance).

Add bone broths, vit A, Vit D, vit C; stop any "cleanses" currently. Increase Omega 3, decrease Omega 6 fatty acids significantly. Avoid alcohol. Decrease stress.

Also wondering about the coconut water kefir.   How is this made exactly?  Is it just coconut water + water kefir grains?  Does any sugar need to be added?  Can one use the bottled coconut water (Zico, e.g.) to make this?  Is it something that can sustain WKG, or do you just need to use "extra" grains for this type of culture and always keep some in sugar water?

 

TIA!

 

Just add coconut water + water kefir grains. I've heard that the water kefir grains will reproduce because there is enough sugar in the coconut water. 

But milk kefir grains may not reproduce without resting in dairy milk, as they are a different and more complex symbiotic colony of microbials.

Yes, Zico works.

I have been scared to make coconut water kefir as I have heard that coconut water has a potentially lethal toxin in it if something goes "wrong" in fermenting.  This is mentioned briefly on Dom's Kefir Site; I haven't found a lot of other info about it but it has been enough to scare me away.
