We have all heard the phrase “You are what you eat”. Kombucha enthusiasts take it to another level by stating, “You are what you can digest”. 80% of your immune system is in your digestive system, and 90% of serotonin is produced in the digestive system. Regular kombucha consumers claim the tea can increase energy and awareness, decrease headaches and fatigue, and have a positive impact on balancing moods. Paying particular attention to gut health is a great way to promote optimal overall health, both physically and mentally.
Join us for an evening with Geneva Pritchard, founder of KombuchAID and expert in probiotics and health and wellness. The workshop will include a history of kombucha, an overview on the reasons it has been hailed as the immortal elixir for over 2500 years, a detailed overview on how to make it at home AND a bonus flavor your own booch bar! Kombucha on its own is power packed with goodness, and this course will cover how to make it even healthier and more delicious with secondary fermentation flavours with health benefits such as detoxification, antioxidants, anti-inflammatory and more.
ABOUT GENEVA PRITCHARD, FOUNDER OF KOMBUCHAID
Geneva Pritchard founded KombuchAID in September 2013 to address two issues close to her heart: funding health projects amongst refugee communities on the Thailand-Burma border, and addressing the increasing prevalence of digestive-related illness in her community. When Geneva returned from many years as a development worker in rural Thailand she suffered from digestive problems and anxiety. Through mindful eating and a dedicated yoga practice Geneva was able to heal herself naturally and dreamt of starting a business that could combine her passion for health and wellness and international development work.
Geneva’s passion for the power of probiotics, the creative process of brewing kombucha and her love for helping her community find natural healing solutions really shines through in her classes.
