SUPPORTING DETOX NATURALLY WITH HERBAL TEAS
Drinking herbal teas is a wonderful way to support the body through detoxification. You can make tea hot or cold and squeeze in the juice of an astringent fruit such as grapefruit, lemon, or lime to refresh and revitalize your body. You can also make a combination of any two or three teas below.
If you have just finished working with me during one of my nutrition programs I highly suggest you try drinking one of the following teas. This is a great transition for you!

To make any medicinal tea, let steep for at least 5-10 minutes, and then consume hot or make into iced tea.
Favorite teas to combat inflammation: nettle and chamomile or you can go see my friends at TeaXotics and try their lovely Ayurevedic Yoga tea. It is amazing! A nice blend of nettle, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, black pepper. Absolute delightful!
Favorite teas to help with constipation: senna, flax tea and aloe vera
Favorite teas to cleanse the blood: burdock or red clover
Again, pop on over to our local tea house, TeaXotics for this lovely blend called “Detox Tisane” an herbal blend of Holy basil, spearmint, dandelion, burdock, peppermint, rose hips. It is not as strong as drinking Burdock tea on its own. 🙂
Favorite teas for liver support: dandelion, pau d’arco & milk thistle
Favorite nourishing tea: chaga
Chaga Tea is a medicinal tea that nourishes the kidneys and the liver. It is wonderful for anyone during a detox because this medicinal mushroom is loaded with antioxidants and minerals essential for a healthy body. Chaga is truly a gentle, safe and effective way to get calcium, iron, manganese, as well as vitamins B, K, and vitamin D2.
To learn more about the power of chaga, watch this video by David Wolfe. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CkMf5kO9Wpw
You can find it at certain health foods stores or at https://www.mountainroseherbs.com.
Chaga Chai Tea:
Prepare chaga tea by adding 2 tablespoons of chaga powder to 2 cups hot water or unsweetened almond milk. Add 1 chai tea bag and let the tea steep for 5-10 minutes. Sweeten with raw honey or stevia if desired. Blend in a high-speed blender.
You can drink this nourishing tea throughout the day, especially if you are feeling tired.
Enjoy a cup of warm tea with a friend or on your own as you reflect on how amazing tea will make you feel. I promise you won’t experience the highs and lows with caffeine and will be truly nourishing your body, mind and spirit.
Please post your new favorite tea and for the local peeps…let me know how you like our new tea house! This is my new favorite happy hour. 🙂
