Kombucha and the Human Microbiome
Kombucha is living tea! For the last decade, Kombucha has been burbling into the collective consciousness. As more and more people are sick of being sick and sick of dealing with a broken medical system, they are seeking out healing foods. The medical community has also been seeking answers and alternate therapies to deal with disease. Through the Human Genome Project and now the Human Microbiome Project, research is just beginning to uncover our complex relationship with bacteria and discovering novel ways to use bacteria therapeutically. Kombucha is at the nexus of pop culture, cutting edge science & fermented foods; serving as a tasty gateway to nutrient dense foods as well as empowering people to reclaim their immunity through the cultivation of this ancient tonic. The basics of brewing Kombucha safely at home will also be covered.
