I (Pat) have been a survivor of cancer since 1972. The
Lord has granted me the blessing of seeing my grandchildren grow up.
I can also sympathize with anyone who has a broken
arm. In 1997 I broke my arm and missed the first
semester of the school year.
Psoriasis has been an almost constant companion since
I was a child only 6 years old. My parents took me to
many doctors and clinics when I was growing up. They
spent an untold amount of money on creams, salves, coal
tar ointments, salt preparations and light treatments.
In 1985 before a trip to a third world country, I had
to take an anti-malarial drug. As a bonus, the
psoriasis on my body cleared up. I was told later that
a remission can be a good side effect of the drug, but
the doctor would not prescribe it as a treatment for
psoriasis because of other complications that might occur.
In 1993 we began drinking Kombucha, a fermented tea,
sometimes called Manchurian tea, cultured from a
gelatin-like mushroom. After several months, I was
again free of psoriasis. I have remained clear except
for one bout of guttate psoriasis due to a strep throat
I harvest the tea once a week and drink 6 oz.a day.
Occasionally I develop a few lesions, but in a few days
they begin to clear up and my skin becomes smooth again.
I don't know if the Kombucha is responsible or not. I
do feel as if the disease is a raging tiger in my body
that is now tamed.
