I think they're making me sick. I have some saurkraut and kimchi and I drink kefir sodas. Lately, I feel like they have been giving me indigestion. I know they're supposed to improve digestion. Today, I was feeling fine, so I decided to drink some kefir soda and see what would happen. My stomach started turning afterwards.

Does anyone else have this problem?

I've just been reading that fermented foods are supposed to increase HCl, so maybe you are getting more HCl than you need when you eat fermented foods? Just a guess...

Or, I wonder if you could having a detox reaction and detoxing something as a result of the probiotics and natural detoxifiers of the fermented foods/kombucha.

Fermented foods tend to be high in amines, a naturally occurring food chemicals that some people react to. www.plantpoisonsandrottenstuff.com has more information on food chemical sensitivity.

Thanks for the ideas!

What is HCI? I looked it up but didn't find anything food-related.

I do have candida issues. Could it be die-off symptoms?

HCl is hydrochloric acid, i.e. stomach acid. I came across a thread discussing it recently. I'll see whether I can find it again...

Interesting. Thanks!

It's kind of a tough one for me. I know fermented foods are healthy (and tasty) but maybe my body isn't tolerating them well.

Have you eaten them in the past without problem, or are you just starting to eat them and they're causing discomfort?

If you already have candida yeast overgrowth and then eat fermented foods when food is already in your stomach, it can cause a bad reaction. I am struggling with candida yeast overgrowth and do eat plain organic whole milk yogurt, but only on a completely empty stomach in the morning.

You could also try taking digestive enzymes each time you eat theses foods.
