Healthy Teas

Whether you need a warm drink for the winter, or you want to incorporate simple lifestyle changes into your diet, here are some fun teas to try.  Check with your doctor first, then enjoy some of the recommendations below.

Five healthy teas you may want to use as you enhance your health:

Chamomile- A calming tea that soothes a sensitive stomach or bedtime wakefulness.  Good for indigestion, poor appetite, and nervous energy.  It helps relive stress and insomnia.

Ginger- Ginger has anti-nausea and anti-inflammatory effects.  It helps alleviate the symptoms of arthritis and is thought to have blood-thinning properties.  It also protects against migraine headaches and is said to be a tonic and a mood lifter.

Hyssop- Very calming and an excellent tonic often used to treat bronchitis, asthma, and other respiratory infections.  It also soothes the digestive tract and can be an effective remedy against indigestion, gas, and bloating.

Peppermint- Excellent for indigestion.  Peppermint may also reduce fevers and the symptoms of motion sickness.  Mix with Lavender to treat migraines.

Raspberry- May be used to relieve diarrhea.  Has also been used as an eyewash for conjunctivitis and a mouthwash for mouth ulcers.

Instructions

Here are some simple directions to make healthy tea:

  • 1-2 teaspoons of fresh or dried herbs
  • Infuse for 5-10 minutes
  • Enjoy!

    Peppermint tea I truly like for the ease of pain with irritable bowel flare ups.

    1. Great tea ideas ladies! Thank you so much for adding to our list. I look forward to trying these. Fabulous additions!

  2. Thanks for talking about the different teas. I drink a cup of Green Tea a day. Sometimes I drink it plain and sometimes I add Stevia. Green Tea is good for your immune system and also helps to lose weight. I can’t wait to try the ginger and the raspberry. I didn’t know about these. This has been so helpful and I do appreciate all your wonderful knowledge and help. So many of us read your blog and find it so very helpful and uplifting in so many ways. I do continue to lift up the various prayers on this blog. Thanks again.

  3. I love all the great information on teas. Will definitely try some of them. Thank you so much for all the help and comfort you provide! Keep up the wonderful work! I’m looking forward to your next newsletter.
