The transition from summer to fall means that we are quickly moving back into hot tea season. Its been nice enjoying a tall glass of iced tea on the deck or at the beach on those warm summer days but the change in weather usually brings on unwanted changes in our bodies. Be sure your cupboards are stocked with some of green tea, black tea and herbal teas as your first line of defense. Today I will mention just a couple of herbal teas that can go a long way in aiding symptoms of colds, flu, upset stomachs and other common ailments.
Whether it’s an upset stomach, slight nausea or more serious digestive issues, you’re likely searching for solutions. There are a few natural remedies that can ease the pain. Herbal tea, in particular, may be the remedy that you need.
Chamomile has been used for centuries as calming herb. Its delightful flavor is great for adding to your favorite herbal tea mixtures for treating symptoms of headaches and muscle cramps.
Peppermint is a noted digestive aid that stimulates the salivary glands, helps eliminate nausea, eases heartburn, and calms stomach spasms and cramps.
Slice fresh Ginger Root and add to your chamomile and mint teas. This spicy delight is great for nausea, vomiting, motion sickness, stomach cramps and stomach aches.
Stomach discomfort can come from a variety of causes. It’s not always from something you ate, although that can definitely play a role. Anxiety has a major effect on digestion as does stress, lack of sleep, and other emotional triggers. Hormones can mess with your stomach, as well as a poor diet which leads to nutrient deficiencies.
Herbal teas can have a calming effect that can help relieve stomach pain. Knowing the cause of your stomach ache is important for choosing the right kind of tea. In many cases we recommend trying our mint based Sleep Tight® tea to help promote better sleep when you are not feeling well.
While tea could be great for relieving temporary bouts of discomfort and minor stomach issues, if you have a larger problem, you should consult your doctor. But for the smaller situations, one of these soothing tea options might help.
