Kombucha Tea: How To Make It For Health Purposes

Kombucha tea has been around for about 2,000 years now.

Chinese people refer to it as the “Immortal Health Elixir”.

Kombucha Tea Brewing

because of the many health benefits it offers.

Kombucha is made from sweetened tea.

Only it is fermented by a colony of bacteria and yeast.

The flavor of this tea is somewhat interesting ?

You’d be able to taste the original sweet tea flavor.

But the acidic, vinegar-like flavor definitely kicks in.

It is available at most health food stores.

But if you are interested in making kombucha tea at home.


Then Read The Tips Below:

1.) Some people prefer using low-grade teas.

As they end up tasting better than more expensive teas.

Do not use teas containing oils (E.g. bergamot oils in Earl Grey).

Because they can harm your bacterial host the kombucha fungi.

The kombucha culture is a symbiotic culture of bacteria and yeast (SCOBY).

Some of the best teas to use are.

Echinacea, green, black, oolong, red, white and herbal tea.

2.) If you are sensitive to caffeine.

You can use decaffeinated tea.

You can also try this trick.

Let your regular tea to steep.

In the cup of hot water for 60 seconds.

Then discard the water.

Use the teabags to make your kombucha tea.

About 80 to 90% of the caffeine.

Will be released by doing this method.

3.) DO NOT wash your hands with an antibacterial soap.

before making kombucha tea.

Doing so can destroy the good bacteria produced by the culture.

Just wash your hands with hot water.

Or use plain vinegar to wash your hands.

And the material you’ll be using.

You may want to use non-latex gloves.

When touching the culture directly.

4.) For kombucha tea.

Refined white sugar works great.

But you can also use organic evaporated cane juice.

Raw sugars are not recommended.

Because they are difficult for the SCOBY to digest.

Do not use raw honey either.

It’s anti-microbial properties can kill the culture.

5.) Use a big mason jar.

Or any wide-mouthed glass jar.

As your brewing container.

Most people like using sun tea container.

Stay away from plastic containers.

Because they can leach into the kombucha.

Metals are not good either.

Because they can corrode or damage the SCOBY.

6.) You don’t need to sterilize the jar.

Just wash the container with dish soap.

Hot water and a little white vinegar or ACV.

Don’t use bleach to clean your jars.

7.) When adding culture to the tea.

Put the jar somewhere warm and dark.

The temperature should be between 70F and 86F.

Colder temperatures will make the culture grow slowly.

Kombucha tea is healthy for everyone in the family.

Yes, even the kids can drink it!

You can flavor the tea by adding.

Strawberries, lemons, peaches, apple or pineapple.

Wait for at least 12 to 24 hours.

For the flavors to come together before serving. Enjoy!

Male Breast Cancer What Are The Odds Of Getting It?

Male breast cancer, am I at risk of contracting it?

Men are not as likely to develop breast cancer as women.

Male Breast Cancer Is Not A Jail Sentence

Male Breast Cancer Is Not A Jail Sentence

But in many cases.

By the time they go to see the doctor.

And receive a definitive diagnosis of breast cancer.

Their cancer is often very advanced.

This is because.

Many men do not realize.

That they can develop breast cancer just like women.

In fact, 1 in every 1000 men.

Will be diagnosed with breast cancer.

At some point in their life.

This is not nearly as high.

As the 1 in 8 women, of course.

But still represents thousands of new cases each year.

And hundreds of deaths.

That could potentially be prevented.

Through awareness and self-examination.

As with all cancers.

Prevention is the best strategy.

Followed by early detection.

If it can’t be prevented.

Those who are at most risk.

Should check themselves and be tested regularly.

The risk is higher in a family.

Where at least one woman has had breast cancer.

Breast cancer might also have.

A genetic component in men as well as women.

The BRCA mutation.

Leaves any person more prone to breast cancer.

And in men, prostate cancer as well.

Prostate cancer is the number two cancer.

That kills men, after lung cancer.

With more than 27,000 deaths per year.

Breast cancer is the number two cancer that kills women.

With more than 40,000 deaths each year.

So the chances are increasing.

That men may carry the BRCA gene.

And have a history of breast cancer.

Male Breast Cancer If Caught Early Is Curable

Male Breast Cancer If Caught Early Is Curable 


 1) Prognosis for Male Breast Cancer

According to the American Cancer Society’s estimates, in 2015 there will be 2,350 new cases of male breast cancer and 440 male breast cancer deaths.

The survival rate depends in many cases on how early the cancer is caught. If it is detected early, at Stage I, the five-year survival rate is 100%. If it has progressed to an advanced stage such as Stage IV, the five-year survival rate will be only 20%.

The staging takes into account the size of the tumor.

Whether or not the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes.

And whether or not it might have metastasized.

Or spread to more distant parts of the body.

Such as bone, liver or brain.

In the latter case.

The prognosis will be much worse.

And survival more unlikely.


2) The cancer stages and their definitions are:

  • Stage I – The tumor is no more than 2 centimeters (cm) in diameter (about 3/4 inch) and hasn’t spread to the lymph nodes such as the underarm or neck.
  • Stage II – The tumor may be up to 5 cm (about 2 inches) in diameter and may have spread to nearby lymph nodes. Or the tumor may be larger than 5 cm but no cancer cells are found in the lymph nodes.
  • Stage III – The tumor may be larger than 5 cm (about 2 inches) in diameter and may involve several nearby lymph nodes.
  • Stage IV – Cancer at this stage has spread beyond the breast to distant areas such as the bone, brain, liver or lungs.

The earlier the cancer is detected.

The lower the stage.

And the better chance for a favorable outcome.


3) The five-year survival rate for each stage is as follows:

  • Stage I – 100%
  • Stage II – 91%
  • Stage III – 72%
  • Stage IV – 20%

As you can see.

Early detection can make all the difference.

So if you are a man with breast cancer in the family.

Add male breast cancer screening.

To your list of things to do.

As part of your self-care routine.
