Worried mom wants to try kombucha for son with eczema

I received this a while email a few weeks ago from Miss Farzana which I think is worth sharing (with her permission of course).

Dear Boon,

I am eagerly interested to try kombucha on my son who has eczema since he was born. He's now 5 and i've been reading about probiotics foods and came across kombucha but I am not sure if there are parents in Malaysia who takes kombucha to treat their kids with skin problems.

My question is why is it called kombucha tea?does it taste similar to tea?my son loves tea so i thought if kombucha tea could become a substitute for his usual tea,plus the probiotics benefits that comes with it..i'd be a happy mom at this point,i am looking into fixing his gut lining in d belly.so im starting with some probiotics packed foods. Thanks!

Dear Farzana,

With regards to your questions, it is a yes. Parents had approached me before about the consumption of kombucha to.cure eczema.

My answer is this. Kombucha is never a cure for any type of illness. Having said that It is indeed a probiotic drink that will generally improve the health of the consumers gut and through that it will generate a general sense of well being.
I had read that introduction of good bacteria can improve the condition of eczema. In fact there was a study that highlighted a strain of lactobasilus called lactobasilus rhamnosus is particularly important in the gut microflora to combat eczema.

I have not lab tested my kombucha for its strain of good bacteria so I do not know if that particular strain of bacteria is in it. What I can say though is its worth a try since.brewing kombucha is not expensive or tough to make.
Like what I said earlier, drinking Will improve the general health of the drinker.

What is it called kombucha? Simple kombu means seaweed which many believe was the origin of kombucha and cha means tea. So it literally means tea made from kelp.

It taste very much like cider. For starters you might slowly introduce it in small quantity of 50 ml to your son or infuse it with fruit juice to mask the fermented smell.

For those interested to learn to make their own kombucha, I will be conducting a class on April 30th. Email or call me if your interested.
