Achalasia Awareness Month

Achalasia Awareness Month | Mystic Brew Teas
This fierce little tiger next to me is our daughter and you wouldn't know it to look at her but she has Achalasia.

Achalasia is a rare disorder that makes it difficult for food and liquid to pass from the swallowing tube connecting your mouth and stomach (esophagus) to the stomach. Food may feel as it is stuck in the esophagus after eating, this can cause choking or coughing and may lead to chest infections if the food goes back down the wrong way and into your lungs. Regurgitation also occurs as the food has nowhere to go except upwards. As a result of food not passing into the stomach and difficulty swallowing, less food is ingested and it is common to lose weight. There are treatments to help with the symptoms of Achalasia but no actual cure and the exact cause of Achalasia is still not understood.

Please do not pity this little tiger, she has fought all of this and she going to keep on fighting. For Achalasia Awareness Month we are donating all profits from the sales of the teas below 

Everyday Breakfast Tea 
Fruit A Full Tea 
Nighty Night Tea 

The donation will go to Guts UK charity is funding stem cells research into achalasia. Guts UK is commited to fighting all digestive diseases.
