A growing number of people have turned to herbalism as an affordable, natural alternative to conventional medicine. I personally try not to take medication if I can help it. All teas can be found at your local Target and or Ralphs under $6.
Here is my Top 5 teas
Make a cup of ginger root tea in the beginning stages of a migraine to relieve the pain naturally without resorting to medication. Studies show that ginger root tea can reduce swelling thanks to its anti-inflammatory benefits and can also alleviate nausea and vomiting, which are common side effects of headaches.
Peppermint tea is a flavorful herbal tea that can reduce muscle spasms in the gastrointestinal tract that can also reduce the severity of headaches. Additionally, peppermint reduces the effects of nausea due to the methanol that it contains.
Lavender tea with Chamomile
This the one right here! Makes you feel so relax. It’s a good idea to have lavender on hand in some form. Lavender calms the nervous system and slows the cardiovascular system down so it can release the constricted blood vessels that end up causing pressure in the head. Sip a cup of lavender tea and rest in a quiet place until the pain is gone.
Chamomile is one of the most effective herbal teas available to relax the body and induce sleep. The herb depresses the nervous system and is effective in calming the body while alleviating stress headaches that can develop. Those who suffer from anxiety can consume the beverage once or twice a day to prevent the migraines from returning.
Red Raspberry Leaf
Here is Why Every Woman Should Drink Red Raspberry Leaf Tea but don't get it confuse with the raspberry flavored tea that you see in stores all the time; it is NOT the same.
Increases milk supply
Helps bring the uterus back to it’s usual size after delivery
Less post-partum bleeding and can help prevent hemorrhage
Regulates menstrual cycle
Can decrease heavy cycles
Aids against PMS
I'm no Doctor but from experience when I had a cyst on my ovaries this tea was literally a lifesaver. Herbalists believe that the presence of tannins and the alkaloid fragarine combined with other nutrients, including calcium, iron, phosphorus, potassium, and vitamin B, C, and E help tone and relax the pelvic and uterine muscles. After drinking red raspberry leaf tea for months, it relieved a lot of my symptoms, including headache, cramps, and overall energy level and moodiness during that time of the month.
Chai tea is a sweet and spicy tea renowned for its fragrant aroma. If you're having a sluggish morning then this is the tea for you, thanks to the caffeine content. Add a slash of Almond milk and Honey! so good. Chai tea may contribute to better blood sugar control. That’s because it contains ginger and cinnamon, both of which may have beneficial effects on blood sugar levels and here's what else
