CHAMOMILE - Healing Tea

Chamamelom noble or Matricaria recutita
Chamomile Tea
Used by the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Vikings, chamomile was referred to as the “do anything” herb because of its reputation as a whole-body healer. Nicholas Culpeper, a world-renowned herbalist who lived in the 17th century, prescribe it for a number of ailments including fever, heart disease, aches and pains and menstrual cramps.

Sleep Aid: But most people are familiar with chamomile’s ability to gently rock us to sleep. Chamomile contains a mild sedative that helps to soothe frazzled nerves and lessen anxiety --- two things that can keep anyone from a sound slumber.

It is one of the gentlest sleep inducers around, relaxing the central nervous system, yet eliminating that :groggy” feeling that many prescription and over-the-counter sleep aids cause the next morning.

The next time you go to a Chinese restaurant consider the fact that your good fortune is in your tea cup, not in a cookie.

Once again, modern scientists have proven what ancient healers knew all along.
Tea, the beverage of choice for millions of people, is a powerful medicine that has prevented – and treated – illnesses and eased symptoms for thousand of years. Here’s a list of some of the therapeutic benefits of tea:

  • Protects against  heart disease
  • Reduces the risk of cancer, especially stomach, esophageal, lung and skin cancers.
  • Protects against and destroys harmful bacteria and viruses
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Reduces atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries)
  • Fights infections
  • Relieves migraines
  • Reduces cavities and gum disease
  • Promotes weight loss
  • Lowers LDL (bad) cholesterol
  • Raises HDL (good) cholesterol

How – and why – it works: It seems almost too easy to be taken seriously how can something we drink for pleasure do us much good?

The answer is the chemical properties contained in the tea leaf, namely polyphenols, flavonoids, and catechins.
Green tea packs more of protective punch than black tea. While black tea contains the same chemical compounds as green, the production process of the leaves reduces much of its healing properties, especially the polyphenols and flavonoids.
