This post wasn't supposed to be about vomiting that was just on my mind at the time of writing. Moderated drinking to heavy kava sessions and everything in between always leaves my stomach feeling irritated. Perhaps my stomach is just sensitive that way. But it also affects my friends too. I know many people in the kava community are quite a kava Puritans and don't like any changes to kava or its preparation, but I think that limits its appeal for many people. I want to share the joys of kava with many more of my friends that are off-put by traditional kava and if that means deviating slightly from traditional prep, I'm happy to put in the extra work in. Helping reduce nausea might also help those who want an alcohol replacement when trying to cut down on drinking. Kava is a good relaxing and social drink but trying to keep up with others drinking at a party that might go on for hours can be a challenge as the kava piles up in your stomach. I love kava and its effects, and it's been a personal godsend for me, but I still feel like it can be improved upon, and besides, experimenting is fun.Kava drinking has become so complicated! How about moderation, ummm, what a novel idea.
