Someone brought them from Russia for me, now I have much better idea, why don't you come and pick them up, they need personal touch, and I could do with your stories.

Nope, Whole Foods does not carry Nancy's Kefir in Nashville.      I'll ask them to carry it and I'll try to keep a positive attitude about it all.  


If they can order it they prob will. I've had them special order stuff for me. Catch is, you have to order a case (12). Here's the good thing tho. You can just return what you don't want or can't afford. They'll just put the remainder on the shelf and sell it. No questions asked. You have to have a bit of muuuulah up front, but it's a way to get what you need. and you get a 5% discount for ordering a case. I'll be looking for it at my WF. Someone said we Hunters can have Kefir. Hope that's true.
Well, as I look at my book, I guess it's one of those neutral-try it and see how it affects you things. Good enough!!

If you go back to that article I posted, it says that non milk kefir produces a probiotic but
not the kefiran..so I suspect you'd get equal value to a food like yogurt but would not
get the polysaccharide that helps reduce tumors.

I'm quoting above article..

"Besides kefirís obvious probiotic value, it possesses other healing properties. Kefir grains produce a polysaccharide known as kefiran. Research in Japan found that rats with tumors, which were fed kefiran, had reduction in tumor size. Kefiran is also proving to have anti-inflammatory properties."

So, don't you think that "yes", rice kefir should give you tummy benefits.

I didn't read the entire article cause I've got this intense sinus cold and my eyes kill me right now to read, so thank you for the quote.

Funky, try some alfalfa tablets or capsules.  They decongest.
