Beet Kvass is a natural fermented beverage that is full of nutrients. It’s known for its cleansing and healing qualities and also aids in digestion.
A few years ago I gave my mother the book Nourishing Traditions. My hope was that my mother would open up this book and read it.
It took her over a year and a half to open up the book and look at it. She called me to ask me about a tonic called Beet Kvass. I told her the recipe was in the book I gave her :). She was interesting in beet kvass because a friend had told her about it. My mother and her friend made a batch of beek kvass and began to drink the kvass daily. My mother started to feel healthier and experienced better energy.
A Healing Testimony
After just a few weeks of drinking beet kvass, a wart my mother had for over 30 years vanished! The wart was on her foot and was something she always worried might be cancerous. The only thing that she had changed in her diet was drinking the beet kvass.
