I have been drinking this healing tonic regularly to help combat the gut damage caused by my ill-advised antibiotic treatment for Late Stage Lyme Disease. According to Donna Gates of Body Ecology:
- It completely stops your cravings for sugar.
- It aids digestion of all foods.
- It has a tonifying affect on the intestines, even flattening the abdomen.
- It appears to cleanse the liver. In Chinese medicine the liver rules the skin, eyes, and joints. Coconut water kefir eases aches and joint pains. Many people report having a prettier complexion. They experience the brown liver spots on the skin fading away and skin tags, moles, or warts drying up and disappearing. Vision also improves.
- It contains high levels of valuable minerals, including potassium, natural sodium, and chloride, which explains why the hair, skin and nails become stronger and have a prettier shine.
- It appears to have a beneficial, cleansing effect on the endocrine system (adrenals, thyroid, pituitary, ovaries). Women find that their periods are cleaner and healthier; some who had experienced early menopause have found this important monthly cleansing returning again.
- It increases energy and gives you an overall feeling of good health.
