Has anyone noticed any positive effects of drinking kefir with regards to anxiety?

That's true - oops! Sorry, I didn't mean to imply her whole book/diet should be followed (though it isn't low fat - not arguing, just saying!), was just pointing out the kefir link. I'm new here and shoulda been more careful!

I appreciate the positive comment but that book recommends a meditarianian diet with whole grains and low fat so it's not really appropriate for paleo

It's a sarcastic joke.

Paul Jaminet who wrote "The Perfect Diet" (perfectdiet.com) speaks of preliminary findings of his work on the gut and anxiety, bipolar disorder, autism, etc. It seems that when the gut is balanced with healthy bacteria, symptoms can actually disappear...so, yes, you might be onto something.

In addition to Angelina's comment, Trudy Scott also recommends kefir and gut health to treat anxiety (although I haven't tried kefir myself, I have had some success using food and gut-healing to treat anxiety) - this is her book:

I worry about probiotics less.

70% of our serotonin receptors are in our gut, so healthy gut balance is essential to healthy mental balance.

I would suggest milk kefir for anxiety and not water kefir. Water kefir gives me this energy (good energy) but might cause increased anxiety.

I have milk kefir, kombucha and jun scobies if anyone needs any.

Not sure about kefir, but I had some sauerkraut the other day...

I regret it. I hope my SIBO does not come back because of it - fermented foods are designed to keep you healthy if you are already healthy. However, if you are sick - it could backfire. So I gave myself a word - no more sauerkraut for a long long long time.
