    Tummy issues and nothing is compliant!

    Brew some ginger "tea" (hot water, fresh ginger). It will settle your stomach, and is completely compliant.

    My sleep is totally messed up

    I find that when I use Natural Calm before bed, I often have to wake up in the middle of the night due to having liquids so close to bed time. One thing I'm trying right now is moving my dose closer to an hour before bed, and using the least amount of water possible (4-6 oz). It sure doesn't help the flavor, but when I can get a decent nights' sleep, it makes it sorta worth it. I have chronic sleep issues, and wondered if you were having similar sleep patterns prior to Whole30, or if they just started during your current round?

    Yeast infection

    Definitely see a doctor if you're still uncomfortable. There are other conditions that mimic yeast infection symptoms, such as BV, that can't be treated with over the counter yeast infection treatments. Also, probiotic foods could potentially help balance out your flora, so if you're not using them at this point, it might be worth a try to add some in.

    Period Returns After Being Pre-Menopausal

    There's a pinned post in this section of the forum. The Whole30 works by rebalancing your hormones. This can lead to changes in periods. If you're concerned, however, you might consult your doctor!

    Kombucha Makers Unite; Where to ask and be answered

    I used real fruit, rather than juice....probably close to 1/4 cup of peeled, diced honeycrisp apple, about 1/3 of a cinnamon stick, and a small piece of chopped ginger--per bottle. I'm guessing I can probably reuse the cinnamon stick, but hard to say. I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but plan to crack one open with dinner this evening.

    Kombucha Makers Unite; Where to ask and be answered

    I'm so excited to have come across this topic. I've been making my own kombucha for a little over a year now. My last batch was attacked by fruit flies, so I started over a few weeks ago. I got a second ferment going on Sunday of apple/cinnamon/ginger. When I went to burp the bottles last night, they actually fizzed out a bit. I popped them in the fridge, and am excited to try them tonight!
