I said I’d write a quick post in support of my friend, Mary. She’s been struggling with weight issues off and on for most of her life. She’s a lovely woman with a big heart and a super family who love her dearly, but she’s had a few issues with self-confidence over the last few years, none of which she’d admit out in the open.
I put her onto the calming properties of Kava a few weeks ago and she’s been trying the (frankly horrible tasting) root juice for a while and it does seem to be doing her some good.
Kava bars are spring up all all the country right now as the population starts to hear about the anxiolytic effects and the general feeling of relaxedness (is that a word?) that this Polynesian drink have to offer.
It was a trip to one of these bars that when I was visiting Vanuatu (they call them Nakamals there) that introduced me to this Aqua Vita. The locals, who apparently had a problem with alcohol in the past, all drink this muddy water after work to help them to relax. It’s actually a very deep part of their traditional culture and has been used in ceremonies for thousands of years.
Anyway, to cut a long story short, I said I’d link to her blog in case anybody was looking at following along with a kava drinker in relation to how it affected their weight and also, just their general well-being.
You can follow her blog here Live Life and Kava
I’m sure she’d appreciate any encouraging comments, especially from anybody that’s used Kava in a similar way or for similar reasons.
