Have been drinking water kefir for about a month. The first week I was fine. Then for two days I got a really runny nose and sinus issues, but that cleared on its own. Then I was fine again. At one point I thought it started causing me reactions, so I started eating the grains and not drinking the water. And that gave me kidney and liver pain (but no die-off). Went back on the water and was fine again (no reactions – must have been food). Well this weekend, I drank about 4 glasses during a 12-hour period. I was fine until Monday. But then got a terrible fever of almost 103. Could barely move. Took one advil which brought it down a bit. Monday morning I slept in a bit, and when I got up, I was totally fine. I believe I have leaky gut and know that I have candida per the CDSA test. My theory is – right before I started getting the fever, I had to use the bathroom. I’m wondering if the candida is in my colon, and the kefir traveled to the end of my digestive tract and started to go ape on the fungus. And that gave me die-off. I’ve done the diet and the anti-fungals like oregano oil, etc. But the diet is so tough for me because I’m allergic to almost all veggies and most other items on the paleo diet. I am really hoping kefir alone can cure me.. but I have my doubts. Anyone have any thoughts?
