Did some very small cheats on diet Saturday at a wedding. My mouth and throat were burning. I drank kefir, did mouth swishing etc. with kefir. It brings such relief. Nothing else does. Avacado is a bit similar but NOTHING like the relief kefir brings. I’m not understanding how it could not be good. Because I have this oral thrush I am certain that kefir has some type of healing properties. Once I drink it I am much better. This is just my own opinion from what I deal with. I was so bad when I started the diet and when I got to the stage I could start kefir it was like the miracle cure that I had been dreaming of.
