Whole food probiotics are one of the MOST important foods for a healthy body, we are learning, especially in this age of multi-drug resistant bacteria.
Here are extensive references regarding the benefits of probiotics.
There are some 400-600 microbials which inhabit and reproduce in the
gut. Some are only there transiently and therefore, to have a "healthy"
gut (based upon our historical traditional cultures), we need to consume

There are some 500-1000 different microbials which inhabit and reproduce in the gut. Some are only there transiently and therefore, to have a "healthy" gut (based upon our historical traditional cultures), we need to consume beneficial microbials regularly. Whole food probiotics more effectively remain viable until they reach the large intestine. Most bottled…Continue
It is cheap and simple to make whole food probiotics at home.
Dairy-free kefir, or any type of dairy could be made into kefir. And the kefir grains reproduce and you will be giving them away to friends and strangers in no time, lol.

Yeast means several different things. Basically, there are good yeasts and bad yeasts. And there are live yeasts and dead yeasts.
"Yeast" collectively isn't the problem. There is (dead) yeast in (some) bread for instance and there is (live) yeast in (some) yogurt. Dead yeast are not the issue with bread. Bread breaks down rapidly into simple carbohydrates which feed "bad" yeasts in the gut and body. The "pathological" yeasts are commonly candida albicans. But simple sugars, not…
I've not used kefir starter as it only has 7 microbials and REAL kefir grains have 56+ beneficial microbials. Kefir grains are free, or less than $15, all over the internet for a lifetime supply.

Just made a batch of sauerkraut, and despite my initial concerns of it being to salty, it is just right! Whooo hooo! Got Kraut!
I can't believe the probiotic tubs of it sell for $5 in our co-op. Sheesh. It's just cabbage! I used some of the brine from the co-op batch to get some of the lactobacillus in. Not sure if that is useful or not. I was sort of thinking along the lines of yogurt making.
I tasted it today, after adding some dill and one shaved clove of garlic. It is…
Kombucha has S. boulardii which displaces and replaces candida albicans. Candida binds with mercury to store it out of circulation. If one has/had mercury fillings and detoxes poorly, they are likely to have candida.
There is an active theory and research regarding the necessity of helminths (parasitic worms). List of peer-reviewed, Journal-published science regarding helminthic therapy and related topics:

Maybe you are like me a total kefir fan. I seriously love kefir.
Ever since adding this probiotic to my daily life it has blessed me.
I feel how well my body responds to all the good bacteria. And whenever I have skipped it in the morning (I use it every morning as a sort of yoghurt packed with goodies like berries, nuts, pumpkin seeds, raisins, broken flaxseed and spirulina) I felt my body missed it.
I love to explore health in the widest sense; body, soul and…Continue

Sometimes changes takes years. I can see I've been circling the healing diet for several years, waiting for something to help make it easier to abstain from certain foods. I've used my role as mom (chef), finances, life stress, etc to avoid change: "Nobody will eat this, I'll eat alone all the time, I'll have to cook two meals (mine and theirs), I don't have money for all the veg I'd go through, I can't handle this right now!" Or my husband will come home with chocolate cake or boba…Continue
