One way is to take kefir, a cultured milk product which originated many centuries ago, in the Northern Caucasus Mountains. It is made by adding milk to kefir grains and culturing for 24 hours or more. Unlike yoghurt, kefir is cultured at room temperature, and unlike yoghurt, kefir contains yeast too. The friendly bacteria and yeast help to keep the bad guys away. Highly recommended. This is only the opinion of Enviroman and from testimony of people on newsgroups who have been helped by kefir only, no rigid research studies done.
