As a people, we have become obsessed with Health. There is something fundamentally, radically unhealthy about all this. We do not seem to be seeking more exuberance in living as much as staving off failure, putting off dying. We have lost all confidence in the human body. ~Lewis Thomas, The Medusa and the Snail, 1979

Question of the month; Does Kombucha really improve health? Answer is...It absolutely does! If it did not better health why would millions of people keep drinking it and making it, for over 2000 years.

What is Kombucha

Kombucha is a carbonated tea-based beverage that millions drink for its health benefits or medicinal reasons. There is scientific data supporting health benefits but unfortunately few studies or have been conducted mainly due to the cost of such studies. There are several centuries of popular accounts telling of health benefits attributed to the tea. Kombucha is sold commercially but can easily be made at home by fermenting tea using a spongy mass of yeast and bacteria often nicknamed a SCOBY. This forms the kombucha culture which is also referred to as the "mushroom" although it is not really a mushroom. It grows on the surface of the tea while the tea is fermenting and resembles a near whitish colored pancake.

Testimonial (Just one of a large number):

Testimonial - Yeast infection, Candida, Appetite depressant: "I have had painful, red-hot yeast infections in the folds of my skin (under the breasts, and under the belly) non-stop for 5 years after being hospitalized and having stomach surgery. I tried a popular product called Three-Lac, after reading the testimonials, to rid myself of the yeast. I also went on a sugar-free, low-carb diet but nothing helped. My best hope was to slather on salves to cover the pain and itching.

Within 6 days of drinking 8-12 oz of Kombucha combined with raw juice daily, the yeast is completely gone. I mean - GONE - after suffering for 5 years!! I also notice it has decreased my appetite, which would make sense if candida was present in my body.

I will post more after using kombucha longer, but wanted to report this amazing benefit! ... H.N.M."

Is Kombucha safe?

Most ask this question because they have heard that some fungi are toxic or they have been told misinformation about Kombucha. Kombucha is not a mushroom it is not toxic. It is only "popularly" called a mushroom.

Kombucha Tea has been used as a health remedy for thousands of years it is now being sold in food and health in the USA, far less expensive to make it yourself.

Kombucha Tea is not a drug. The F.D.A. has found Kombucha Tea to be a safe beverage provided it is prepared properly in a clean way so as not to become contaminated by pathogens. All foods that you make has a risk of contamination but the risk is probably less for Kombucha because it is a fermented beverage which as it ferments it produces a small amount of alcohol helping to protect it.

No one has ever died from drinking properly prepared Kombucha Tea and millions drink the tea daily and have done so for thousands of years. It is safer than aspirin. There are 1000 aspirin related aspirin deaths yearly.

Kombucha Tea is a fermented drink and , but then again some few people might be sensitive to any number of things. A reaction is usually just a reddening of the skin or a minor.

The tea is acidic but no more so than wine, orange juice, or grapefruit juice, unless it is allowed to ferment too long then it becomes more acidic. Drinking Kombucha Tea cannot change the pH level of your blood unless you drink large amounts of the tea when it is sour, this would not be a smart thing to do, drinking very large quantities of anything is usually not a wise thing to do.

A Kombucha mushroom might develop a mold but this is not likely. Most common household food molds are not harmful but they can ruin the taste of the tea. This minor problem is easily prevented by keeping the brewing jar properly covered and if it should occur is easily detected and you simple make a new batch of tea."]
