HERBAL TEA


HERBAL TEA

Our grandmothers used them to cure all kinds of ailments. Traditional Chinese medicine also uses herbs. Let their power work on you.


Do you prefer the natural way of dealing with health problems? Don't want to resort to medicines for minor problems? Give herbs a chance. They are not self-saving and certainly cannot replace the medicines prescribed by your doctor. We certainly don't encourage you to throw away your medicine cabinet.


However, you can support your health with herbal teas. Some can be sipped as a preventive measure, others to cleanse the body, and others for ailments such as coughs, colds or stomach problems...


Different for everyone

The old wisdom says that there is no herb that is not for something. However, the grandmothers of the herbalists knew their stuff. They also say that the best herbs are found close to home. And that's how phytotherapy, the treatment with herbs, came about. Herbal teas aren't actually teas. They have nothing to do with the tea plant. Yet they give us much.


Herbal decoctions can help us greatly. They have been used since 3,000 BC. Not everyone has the time and knowledge to run around the meadow and pick herbs. Today, you can buy single-species teas or blends mixed exactly for specific ailments.


Each herb has its positives, but some may have contraindications. So always find out the necessary information. Pregnant women should handle them very carefully and consult their doctor to be sure. The same applies in the case of children and the seriously ill.


Drinking herbal teas has its own principles to ensure that you get the most out of them:

+ It is recommended to drink herbal tea for three weeks.

+ Followed by a one-week break.

+ If you have a heavy stomach, sip the digestion-boosting tea half an hour before meals.

+ Do not brew your tea for the day ahead, but always prepare a fresh decoction.

+ Children and pregnant women must be especially careful, always consult your doctor.


Types of teas:

+ Loose - probably the most natural form of herbal teas. These are only dried herbs, and are usually available in paper bags. Usually the herbs are steamed in boiling water, left to infuse under a lid for a few minutes and then strained.

+ Sachets - even classic "sachets" can be used as a herbal cure. Ideal for those in a hurry. No work, no need to strain the decoction. You just pour, leave it, take the bag out and go...

+ Instant - today there are also instant herbal teas on the market. Just pour a couple of teaspoons into a mug, pour boiling water and stir. Quick and delicious.
