O.K!! I think I am finally caught up. For my Medical Medium October Recipe Challenge Day 8 – I chose a relatively simple one because we have sorta been “go go go” since getting back from our mini get away.
SO I ended the day the best way that I know how….
A cuppa tea <3
A super healthful, nourishing, cleansing cuppa tea to be exact.
Yep….that would be the Medical Medium Liver Rescue Tea.
He said you can use dried herbs, loose leaf tea or tea bags and thankfully I had tea bags kicking around!
Ingredients: Red Clover, Nettle, Dandelion and burdock root dried herbs, loose leaf tea or tea bags *** Note – I am missing the burdock root!
Red Clover: Red Clover is a wonderful herb that commonly grows in yards and meadows. The red flowers and green leaves are used as an herbal supplement due to their high concentration of minerals and healing benefits. Red Clover is known to soothe the nervous system, assist in balancing hormones, provide relief for bronchial problems, aid in healing infections, help improve fertility, cleanse the lymphatic system, and be a tonic for the digestive tract. Red clover can be used as a delicious tea which can be taken hot or cold with a touch of raw honey.
Nettle: According to the medical medium ” Nettle leaves are a powerful herbal medicine that grow abundantly in the wild. They are rich in chlorophyll and minerals such as iron, chromium, zinc, copper, magnesium, silicon, cobalt, and calcium. Nettles are also high in vitamins A, E, D, C, & K. Nettle tea is a strong immune booster and has the ability to neutralize toxic antigens in the body.
Nettles also contain a potent anti-inflammatory agent which help to curb the action of cytokines, one of the key components to inflammation in the body. Nettle leaves are also very helpful in preventing chronic headaches, sore throats, sinus infections, and fatigue and are beneficial for diabetics as it is known to lower blood sugar levels.
Nettles are known to help relief bronchial ailments such as chronic coughing, chest congestion, COPD, and TB. Nettles are also powerful enough to help to eliminate viral and bacterial infections and aid in removing excess fluids in the body by acting as a natural diuretic. Nettle leaf can provide relief for digestive issues such as nausea, flatulence, acid reflux, and colitis.
Nettle tea supports the endocrine system including the spleen, thyroid, and pancreas. It is also beneficial in boosting liver and heart health and helps to prevent urinary tract infections as well as bladder and kidney stones. Nettle tea can also help stop frequent nighttime urination, which may be beneficial for those who need to sleep soundly without interruption. “
Dandelion: Detoxifies the liver and gallbladder
Burdock Root: Burdock root is a medicinal herb and food that has powerful anti-tumor, anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory, and anti-microbial properties. Burdock root is one of the top recommended herbal remedies for cancer due to the belief that it can stop cancer cells from metastasizing and it is one of the star ingredients of the famous natural cancer remedy known as Essiac tea.
It is also highly beneficial for colds, flu, sore throats, bronchial congestion, ulcers, gallstones, anemia, kidney stones, chicken pox, gout, measles, strep throat, urinary tract infections, bladder infections, hepatitis, and enlarged prostates. Burdock root is an essential blood purifier and detoxifying herb as it can neutralize and safely eliminate poisons and toxins from the body.
Burdock is one of the most important herbs for treating chronic skin problems such as acne, psoriasis, eczema, and shingles. It can also help to stimulate metabolism, re-grow hair, strengthen nails, and aid in edema and weight loss. Burdock root is an effective painkiller that can help alleviate symptoms of inflammation that affect auto-immune disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia, bursitis, lupus, and diabetes.
I give this comforting tea a 7 out of 10. It has a earthy flavour but highly beneficial and cleansing to the body.
