Tibicos Mushroom

I went to visit Joan  one morning. She was busy culturing or brewing Tibicos mushroom.  I was wondering what was that.  She was so excited over it and told me the miracles of Tibicos. She wanted me to try some of it .  I was  reluctant   but finally drank it after her persuasions.  Oh, I can accept the taste, a little like wine but not too sweet, I will give it a try to brew it for my family, after all there is no harm as Tibicos mushroom will produce good bacterias for our body. Joan gave me 3 spoonful to start off my brewing.

What is Tibicos? The Tibicos,also known as tibi and many other names, are a culture of bacteria and yeast held in a polysaccharides matrix created by bacteria. The Tibicos originated from Tibet, in the Himalayas.  It was Mother of Theresa of Calcutta who obtained some for the poor and needy.  In fact, anyone can drink the tibicos in order that one may get the maximum benefits of the tibicos(the gift of nature).

To start off my brewing, I need

3 spoonful of tibicos
11/2 spoonful of brown sugar
3/4 bowl of clean water
1 glass container
1 plastic sieve
1 plastic/ceramic bowl
1 plastic/ceramic spoon
1 PCs of clean cloth
1 rubber band

Clean the glass container but never use soap because it has contents that may kill the needed probiotics in the process of brewing.  Use alcohol or distilled white vinegar instead(as instructed from the massage I got from the net).  I washed  all my utensils  with hot water and rinsed with R.O water .
Put the tibicos, sugar and water in the container.  Cover with the pieces of cloth and faster it with the rubber band.

Leave the container in an undisturbed place for 24 to 48 hours.
I strained it after 24 hours and drank it first thing in the morning with an empty stomach.

It taste like wine but not too sweet.  I repeat the process for 3 days, manage to brew another unit for my husband. I was able to brew for my mother, my sister, my father-in-law and my maid too.  I gave away to my friends as well. I have extra in my freeze, you are welcome to have it because it is distributed free.

Tibicos is good for arthritis, migraines, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, digestive system, liver, muscles, nerves, eyes, skin, lungs kidneys and blood. Treat it as a supplement drink.  It will help you get well and better health in no time.
