Dr Oz Healing Herbal Teas For Instant Relief
Doctor Oz did a segment on Healing Herbal Teas to relieve everything from rashes to allergies to depression. He was joined by Martin Ekechukwu, a tea expert, who spoke about Rooibos Tea, Sage Tea and Nettle Tea.
Dr Oz: Sage Tea For Depression
Dr Oz said that Sage Tea can boost your mood and is a plant that is commonly used in cooking. Sage Tea increases alertness, improves your mood, releases anxiety and decreases inflammation in your body. Martin Ekechukwu said that the best way to make Sage Tea is to brew down some fresh sage leaves from your grocery store and to add some brewed black tea, because otherwise the Sage Tea alone can be bitter. He also recommended adding a touch of honey.
Dr Oz: Rooibos Tea For Eczema & Rashes
Dr Oz said that Rooibos Tea is great for Skin Irritations including eczema and rashes. Rooibos Tea is high in antioxidants and used in South Africa to treat Irritated Skin. Plus, Rooibos Tea is high in polyphenols which help relieve the itching associated with Contact Dermatitis and Eczema. Martin Ekechukwu said that Rooibos Tea has a great flavor to drink, but you can also make a paste out of it and apply it to your face for a Rooibos Tea Face Mask to soothe rashes and skin irritation. It sounded like he was suggesting that you make a paste out of the tea leaves in the tea bag after the tea has been brewed, but I am not 100% sure… so if anyone knows or tries this out, please leave a comment below!
Dr Oz: Nettle Tea For Allergies & Hay Fever
Dr Oz said that Stinging Nettle Tea prevents Hay Fever and blocks histamines that cause allergies. Martin Ekechukwu said to make a big pot of Nettle Tea and to keep it in your fridge, then to add a lime after a few days because it is dense. He also said that Nettle Tea is caffeine free, so you can use this Allergy Remedy for your whole family – even for kids!
