GAPS, Kefir, Fungus and Raw Milk

Please note that this article was written in early 2011. Some of the details have changed. My health is much improved although I still have to be very careful to get massive amounts of probiotics and plenty of sleep. Today, Health Canada is more terrified than ever of BC’s raw milk.

Today I finally got around to posting this amazingly detailed information about kefir put together by www.bovinity.webs.com. I had a couple of lovely ladies come by on Monday to adopt a kombucha and kefir culture, which helped motivate me to spread the good news about kefir 🙂 There is a lot of great information at the above mentioned site about raw milk as well as the details and history of how our cowshare began.

The community of real milk. I've been talking a lot about raw milk lately, but haven't really explained much of my own history and why I am so passionate about such a strange thing.
