If you are a woman at a reproductive age, you know exactly that feeling of starting your period and all these horrible PMS symptoms that come with it such as stomach pains, nausea, headaches, moodiness, fatigue, and the list goes on. Since your body goes through a very sensitive phase during your period, it is important to consume the right foods and drinks that will ease your PMS symptoms and give your body the chance to replenish itself. Besides helping with PMS symptoms, you can also drink any of these teas to soothe stomach problems fast and naturally, regardless of your age, gender, and health status as they are mild and safe for most people (if you are pregnant or suffer from allergies, consult with your doctor first). Here they are:
Ginger & teatox tonic tea. Ginger has been used for thousands of years as a multi-purpose health tonic and many studies have shown that ginger is a very useful natural remedy for soothing upset stomach and nausea symptoms, To make the most of it, mix it ideally with a herbal caffeine-free mix like one of our tea ranges. Soak 1 tsp of fresh chopped ginger or ginger granules and 1 teabag in hot water, and let brew for a couple of minutes before removing the ginger and the teabag. Add optionally a bit of honey to sweeten it up and serve.
Teatox flower bombs with aloe vera juice. If you are not a fan of very vivid and zingy herbal tastes, you’ll find this mild-tasting Teatox flower bomb tea with aloe vera very easy to drink--not to mention it will look great in your cup. To make it, submerge one Teatox flower bomb in a big teacup (around 300 ml) of hot water and add two tbsp of aloe vera juice. Add optionally a bit of stevia or honey for sweetness and stir lightly (making sure you don’t ruin the flower) before drinking.
Chamomile, honey and clove tea. Chamomile as the main ingredient of this tea is very soothing for your stomach as it contains nutrients that naturally release urine levels of glycine, which is a compound capable of fighting stomach muscle spasms. Chamomile is also useful for promoting a calm and serene mood as well as helping ease headaches and insomnia problems. Combined with cloves and honey which are renowned for their gentle soothing, antimicrobial and immune-boosting properties, you’ll have great-tasting and ultra calming tea for your stomach and discomfort issues. To make this tea, submerge one chamomile bag in a 1 cup of hot water, add a bit of honey to your taste, and add 2-3 clove heads. Let brew for 2-3 minutes with the cup covered to trap steam, and remove the teabag and cloves before drinking.
Nettle and Lemon Balm. Nettle is one of the best herbs for female health problems as it helps calms muscle spasms, relieves bone/joint pains and also contains iron which is inevitably lost during your period through blood. The addition of lemon balm in this tea also boosts its tonifying yet soothing properties and gives it the tea a more zingy taste. Here is how to make it: boil 1 cup of water with 1 tbsp of nettle and 1 tsp of lemon balm leaves or if you can find these two in teabag form, submerge into hot water and steep for a couple of minutes before serving and drinking. You can also add a bit of honey or stevia for a healthy hint of sweetness.
