I don’t know what Kombucha is. Or at least I didn’t. But I went in to a Planet Organic looking for something to eat that would make me feel healthy, and I ended up buying a raw organic drink called “Synergy” which has Black Chia in it and is a Kombucha drink. I also bought a bag of organic apples (which were delicious).
I enjoyed the drink – it came in a 480ml bottle, and serving size was 240ml. It is pretty low-cal so I felt I could drink the whole bottle.
I finished it and started feeling… drunk. I knew enough about Kombucha to know it’s alcoholic, but less than 1%, and this is sold in a grocery store so I figured it must be less than 0,5%… It wouldn’t make sense to me that I’d be drunk.
Anyway after some brief internet research I decided I must be feeling a “healing crisis” (source). I have no doubt that my body is “toxic” as I’ve never done a cleanse or detoxified before.
This morning I woke up with a terrible headache, and I’ve been extremely emotional all day.
Has anyone else experienced this? What should I do? I wouldn’t mind detoxing with Kombucha but I cannot take these side effects for any length of time. I realize I should cut my dose significantly if I continue, but I wanted to see if anyone else has had a similar experience.
