THREE FOODS THAT CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE: THE TRILOGY!

Kefir, Kombucha, and Cultured Vegetables. These three foods provide different good bacteria and yeasts that enhance the trillions of bacteria in the body and allow them to thrive, grow, and multiply. This allows you, the host, the opportunity to heal disease, remove pathogens, enhance digestion, make serotonin, and experience a multitude of other opportunities for healing that otherwise would not have been possible. This is what I call ~ The Trilogy.
