Hello, I LOVE THIS SITE and wanted to report my recent experience with Kombucha tea. I purchased some at my local whole foods store to assist me in detoxing. I hadn't slept at night for the entire week. I immediately drank it and, although I hadn't eaten all day and was starved, suddenly was not hungry. Later on that evening I had some extreme detox symptoms and felt fatigued and sleepy. For the first time in a week I went to sleep and slept through the night! I would certainly try this drink. Sure it is acidic and an acquired taste but it's phenomenal. Depending upon how ill you are, I've heard that it is important to begin with 1/2 cup because of the extreme detoxing!
