Have you ever had that 'gut feeling' and wished you had listened to it?

When your 'Gut' is out of alignment, your whole physical, mental, emotional and spiritual bodies are also out of alignment.

While life is easier if we all had 20/20 hind site; we all could have a greater connection with our unconscious mind, otherwise known as our 'intuition' or 6th sense.

We have all heard of the Mind/Body balance; let's take this concept one step further and acknowledge our gut as a direct connection to the mind. 

It is the chicken and the egg syndrome (which one specifically comes first?)

The Ancient Chinese called Kombucha the "Immortal Health Elixer" as they revered it for its remarkable health benefits.

Kombucha is a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY) that forms a zoolgleal mat. This unique beverage has been used for over 2000 years to improve health and fight against infection and chronic disease. .

Kombucha cultures typically contains many strains of beneficial yeasts that turn sugar into alcohol. One particular strain of bacteria, Gluconacetobacter xylinus ferments the alcohol from the yeast into acetic acid. This lowers the alcohol content in the Kombucha and increases the probiotic metabolite content. 

 

Natural Organic Flavours - such as top: strawberry and ginger

Yes! I'm a ginger fan: it is seriously a miracle food.

Benefits include:

  • Anti inflammatory especially for rheumatoid arthritis and Osteo arthritis related problems with your aging knees? Regularly spicing up your meals with fresh ginger may help.
  • Ginger Induces Cell Death in Ovarian Cancer Cells and other tumours.
  • Ginger reduces all symptoms associated with motion sickness including dizziness, nausea, vomiting, and cold sweating.
  • Safe and Effective Relief of Nausea and Vomiting During Pregnancy
  • Immune Boosting Action.
  • The kombucha mother- Scobie

Health Benefits of Kombucha

However, Kombucha Tea is JUST A FOOD – a naturally carbonated, healthy tonic enjoyed by those who brew and consume it regularly, often throughout the day in small doses. People are usually very loyal to their daily Kombucha consumption, and consider the drink healthy for a number of reasons, such as:

  • Contains living bacteria and yeast
  • Substituted for sugary sodas or multiple trips to the coffee pot
  • Acts as a snack or pre-meal hunger control
  • Alkalizes like vinegar or lemon juice – balances internal pH
  • Compounds in the drink may bond to and help excrete toxins from the liver – happy liver = happy mood
  • May speed metabolism
  • The acids present may improve digestion or alleviate constipation
  • Improved flexibility & fluidity of movement
  • Smooth energy from low levels of tea
  • Relieve headaches & migraines

Antioxidants & polyphenols from the tea are partially fermented and so more bioavailable.

The acidity of the finished kombucha product prevents contamination by airborne mold and bacterial spores. The bacteria and yeasts within the kombucha are also thought to produce antimicrobial defense molecules to protect from contamination as The kombucha mother

The G. xylinum bacterium makes up most of the physical structure of the kombucha mother. The kombucha mother is basically a floating piece of fibrous cellulose with these beneficial microorganisms. The presence of the mother is a sign of an active and alive kombucha. No mother is a sign of pasteurization or processing.

Kombucha is loaded with unique nutrients

Kombucha is loaded with organic acids, active enzymes, amino acids and polyphenol anti-oxidants. The most common components include the various organic acids such as acetic acid, butyric acid, usnic acid, oxalic acid, malic acid, gluconic acid and lactic acid. It also contains active enzymes and probiotics.

Kombucha is typically produced in a sweetened green, white or black tea. The best fermentation process uses an organic evaporated cane juice or honey although too much honey can disturb the stability of the culture. Most of the sugar will be remade into organic acids that blunt the blood sugar response so it is very low glycemic and non-inflammatory.

Improves joint function

Kombucha is rich in glucosamines which helps preserve cartilage structure and prevent joint degeneration. Glucosamines increase hyaluronic acid production within the joint which binds moisture thousands of times its weight in the joint cavity. This provides the joint with structure, moisture, lubrication and flexibility while protecting against free radical damage.

Combined with Ginger, this combination is a powerful healing formula for arthritis, inflammation and dickie knees (which is something I personally have). Drinking Kombucha  has in only 3 months reduced inflammation and enhanced flexibility and strength. (Much better than a knee replacement).

Improves digestion and immunity

Kombucha is loaded with probiotic bacteria and yeast that make their way into the gut and ward off parasites and pathogens. It is particularly good at minimizing Candida and improves digestion and nutrient assimilation. Kombucha enhances immunity by inoculating the gut with healthy microorganisms and providing anti-oxidants and enzymes.

Kombucha helps the body cleanse

This beverage is loaded with enzymes and organic acids that help to detoxify the body. This reduces the load on the pancreas, liver and kidneys and helps the body rid itself of unwanted wastes and destroy cancer cells. Kombucha is rich in glucaric acid which has potent anti-cancer activity.

It is now scientifically proven that meditation and hypnosis are the only two techniques that slow the brain down to the optimal Alpha and Theta states where the neural pathways can be rewritten from our negative past to our positive future where we become the ‘Drivers of our own Life’ (At Cause), instead of being the victims at someone else’s control, (At Effect).

Courage to be 'YOU'

Our outer persona or our ‘Mask’ is a protective shield we wear to cover up how we are really feeling. You have all heard the quote ' Behind every beautiful thing, there's some kind of pain..... Who hide their fears, hurt, pain and tears under the smiles, laughs and giggles on a daily basis'. Bob Dylan Who would you be without the fears, hurt and pain? Who would you be without the 'Mask'? Would you like to find out?
