Tummy Troubles, Be Gone with Lifeway Kefir

“My tummy huuuuurts!” our friend, C, moaned to us over the phone the other day. “What’s wrong?” we asked. “It’s in knots. I feel awful. I don’t even want to move. But I dragged myself to the store to see if there’s any medicine I can take.” Medicine? We thought. Who needs pricey drugs when a […]
