Kombucha: From Russia, with love

A talk with a young Russian doctor.

Last month I met a nice Russian girl. She and her husband were visiting the United States. She is 30 years old, and a neurologist. We had an interesting talk about how she practices medicine in Russia. She spends a minimum of 30 minutes with each patient, up to an hour or even two hours, as necessary. She talks with them, gets to know their problem and personality, etc. She tries to prescribe exercise, diet and homeopathy before she tries prescription drugs. She sounded in most every way to be the kind of doctor I would like to have, and that I wish all doctors were! Unlike American doctors, she doesn't make a large amount of money, it isn't a particularly lucrative profession.

Anyway, I asked her about Kombucha tea. She had never heard of it by that name, but when I described it, she definitely knew about it. They call it mushroom tea, mushroom drink, or just mushroom. (Gryb) She said she and her friends make it, it is quite common. She will get a culture from her friends and make it for a while, sometimes giving the culture to others. If someone comes over, she would offer it to them to drink. This is in the city of Moscow, not out in the country.

I think it is lovely to think of a place where the doctor treats you with respect, spends time with you, uses alternative treatments, and where it is common practice to make and drink kombucha tea.
