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, and 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. Hannah Crum also covers the basics of brewing kombucha safely at home.

Hands on How to Brew Kombucha

If you can brew a cup of tea, you can brew kombucha! As bacteriosapiens, we are bacteria-powered. That means the more bacteria-rich fermented foods that we incorporate into our diet, the better we feel. Learn how easy it is to enjoy the benefits of brewing kombucha at home for a fraction of the cost (while nourishing your human microbiome). The Kombucha Mamma leads this lively presentation and Hands-On demonstration, and participants go home with a gallon of kombucha to brew and their very own Kombucha Kamp SCOBY (a $25 value!).
