My kombucha journey was born from my obsession with finding ways to heal naturally after a 2010 diagnosis of an autoimmune illness. Determined to forge my own healing path and take the health of my daughter and I into my hands, I began to tirelessly research my options. I discovered the importance of having a healthy gut and how it directly effects the immune system, so I began changing my eating habits. With the introduction of a diet rich in ferments (like kombucha, kefir, and sauerkraut) and whole foods, as well as the elimination of foods that trigger my flareups, I have been able to keep my autoimmune illness under control for almost 1o years!

In 2011, I left my life in academia to raise my daughter closer to family, I was blessed to meet a beautiful friend, who was happy to share one of her scoby babies with me. Within a month my counter top looked like a little lab, with brewing logs and jars of booch in various stages of fermentation. Soon family and friends, although initially reluctant to try my “vinegar drink”, fell in love with my brews and began sharing with others. In 2015, I decided to take the leap and start my own company. After lots of hardwork, Morning Light Kombucha was born in 2016!

Morning Light Kombucha is a labor of pure and utter love, with the company thriving because of the generous help and support of family and friends. So from our family to yours….cheers to following your heart, living out your dreams and most importantly to your trusting you gut.

Xoxo,

Melinda
