On the strict candida diet, kefir or yogurt are recommended. I am lactose intolerant, but I found a fermented vegie salad — would this be a good substitute?July 8, 2013 at 5:08 am #107392

I doubt it’s as powerful or filled with as much probiotics as a good quality kefir unfortunately.
I don’t know what your level of intolerance is to lactose because I am also lactose intolerant actually but I can digest a good quality kefir fine. Have you ever tried kefir before?
Yogurt is hit or miss for me, some make me run to the bathroom, other is ok but I’ve never had a problem with kefir causing diarrhea for me even when my digestive system was at its most fragile.
If you have tried it and still had a reaction to it, you could also look up water kefir. That’s a great alternative too. The only pain is finding the grains to make it. Once you do though, they make a ton of water kefir and its super easy. Lots of great recipes and how to’s on youtube.July 8, 2013 at 3:32 pm #107408

As Smitty suggested, if you can’t do dairy, water kefir is a good alternative. And you can use the finished water kefir to make coconut milk kefir. Or you can make coconut water kefir if you like.
Sauerkraut is a great addition to the diet. I would be careful with the Vegi-Delite though, since it has carrots and beets. Any of the raw sauerkraut products look fine though. The pickles would be good too.
Or you can make your own. I ferment my own kraut, pickles, okra, and green beans. It’s simple and costs far less.July 8, 2013 at 7:30 pm #107417

Have you ever tried goat’s milk? Most people who are allergic to lactose are not allergic to goat’s milk.
Also, some stores sell lactose free kefir.
