After It Greatly Improved Her Chronic Allergies, She Decided To Spread The Love Of Kombucha
A confession: up until this year, I didn’t know what kombucha was. I was truly ignorant of its incredible health benefits, and it wasn’t until I came across the Instagram profile of Yocha did I even begin to get interested.
Imagine this: a drink that’s not only chock full of flavour, but also of a variety of natural probiotics, beneficial acids, anti-oxidants, and organic enzymes. Doesn’t sound real? Yet, that’s exactly what kombucha is.
The Start Of A Healthy Journey
After Yocha grabbed my attention, I immediately followed and set about contacting the owner, Amanda, who graciously accepted my invitation. I asked her what set her on the course of creating kombucha.
“My chronic allergies (eczema and sinusitis) improved significantly after I started consuming fermented drinks daily – kombucha and milk kefir. I could wean off years of topical steroid medication for my eczema and resume a normal life. It has been 4 years ever since and I have not had any major flare-up. As for sinusitis, it is totally gone. I used to have difficulty breathing 24/7. But now, I could breathe like a normal person and sleep through the night,” she wrote.
