G has had chronic bladder infections for years. I bought four good teas that have lemongrass in them. Stash Meyer Lemon, Stash Lemon Ginger, Twinings Lemon Ginger and Presidents Choice Lemon Ginger. Using four tea bags, one from each tea box, the tea was steeped to full strength in an insulated "go cup". G drank it at 8pm. The next morning she found that the urine was not cloudy for the first time in a very long time.
This was the start of getting a healthy bladder. G continued to drink the very strong tea three times a day, every day. She added the Bells Lifestyle Bladder and Yeast Infection blend of herbs (also available at our local health food store and Riverside Drugs) to the daily routine. And still to this day, G has not had any recurrence of the tell tall sign of cloudy urine. She takes one capsule of Bells Lifestyle Bladder and Yeast Infection to maintain her bladder health and to support not getting up in the night.
Lemongrass is an amazing healer. It is a known medicine used to prevent the growth of some bacteria and yeast, relieve pain, reduce fever, muscle cramps, headaches, stomach ache and the more serious inflammatory bowel disease.
There have been studies that show lemongrass has a positive effect on staphylococcus and streptococcus.
Lemongrass will fight cancer by causing cancer cells to self destruct without harming healthy cells.
The lemongrass essential oil is an antifungal, antibacterial, antiseptic, febrifuge, antimicrobial, analgesic, antidepressant, nervine, and invigorates and strengthens the body.
When I feel the first slight scratch to my throat I brew up very strong cups or many pots and drink tea until I feel better. I find it usual just takes the day or a few hours to feel better.
My favourite four teas that I drink three large cups every day are Stash Meyer Lemon, Stash Lemon Ginger, Stash Mellow Moments (Very nice smooth tea with Holy Basil/Tulsi. Will talk about tulsi in another article.) and Stash Cascade Mint or Stash Morrocan Mint (both have spearmint), both are often difficult to find in this town. It is a necessity for me to have a tea with spearmint. I talk about spearmint in this other blog post.
And yes I do put all three tea bags in one cup. Very strong and very healing. No, you do not use the tea bags again. A fresh set of three tea bags in every cup. Yes that is a lot of tea. And yes it does keep me healthy. No you do not need to drink it hot. If you wanted to give it to children I would maybe not use the spicy ginger and just use only the lemon myer from Stash. Stash teas are foil wrapped to maintain the freshness of the herbs. Stash is available at most stores and online shopping at well.ca and amazon.
I think it is a win win for you, me and the tea companies. The tea companies blend teas to taste good. A good tasting tea is easy to drink. The right tea will aid me in my need to be and stay healthy. "Put on the kettle for tea. I drink to our health."
Be Healthy. Stay Healthy. Massage.
