What kind of tea is good for headaches? Can we drink specific teas regularly to prevent headaches? Headaches are the most often symptom that something isn’t right in our body. If the headache appears occasionally (due to dehydration), this is not a major problem.
But many people face it very often. What do you do when your head hurts? Do you take a painkiller like other people? This isn’t necessary, if we are aware of the problem and know how we can help ourselves naturally.
What Kind Of Tea Is Good For Headaches
Teas can mild the headache or even stop it. Some teas have the ability to provide more blood to the head and thus help to eliminate a headache.
Rosemary tea is especially good for treating a headache. It overcomes migraine and nausea. Place 3 teaspoons of chopped rosemary in 3 dcl of boiling water and let it boil for a few minutes. Leave the tea to cool down. Drink a deciliter of this tea before each meal (even before breakfast), wait 10 to 15 minutes and then you eat.
You will soon find out that rosemary works favorably on the stomach, restores the mucous membranes, prevents cramping, restores the liver and so on. It helps with colds, respiratory diseases, relaxes and helps to fall asleep in the evening. Drink rosemary tea for 7 days, then take 14 days of rest, then you can drink it again.
I don’t recommend drinking tea, if you have liver problems, biliary disorders, severe circulatory disorders and impaired cardiac function.
I have already written a lot about ginger and its healing properties. A new research has shown that it is successful treating pain, as regular drinking of this beverage can relieve and eliminate headache, joint and bone pain.
The Chinese often prepare a hot drink, adding ginger and brown sugar to the water. You can make a ginger hot beverage yourself. You need a fresh ginger root or ginger powder. You put a slice of a ginger root or put one teaspoon of ginger powder into a cup. Pour two deciliters of hot water over the ginger, cover the cup and leave for ten minutes, then strain it. You can add lemon juice and honey in your tea.
Such a drink will also help you to get rid of the flu and the cold. It will suit for your sore throat and save you from the headache. If you drink it regularly, every day, you can be free of pain in joints and bones.
In the past tansy plant was used primarily for the elimination of warms in the body. We can safely use the plant only in the form of tea. Tansy tea will help you to get through the headache.
Pour a cup of boiling water on a teaspoon of dry plant. It is best to drink 2 cups per day. Tea affects all types of worms in the body and bowel problems. You can use this tea in rheumatism and gout.
Tansy extracts release the spasms of smooth muscles in the small intestine and accelerate the secretion of the bile (perhaps due to phenolic acids). Phenolic acids lower lipids and blood sugar, and destroy some fungi. Oil and beta-thujone have the ability to eliminate parasites. Water infusions and alcohol extracts have also proven clinically, stimulating the secretion of bile in patients with hepatic and biliary disorders. Treatment decreases pain, increases fluid and improves digestion.
Who doesn’t know that kissing under mistletoe brings happiness for the couple? Mistletoe is a popular component of winter flower arrangements, but it is not known so much for its beneficial effects on health.
Although, historical sources state that it was used in the healing process already in the 5th century BC. Its therapeutic effects are also recognized by official medicine. The results of the latest research placed mistletoe and its active ingredients in anti-cancer medicines.
It has been proven that it contains a whole range of medicinal substances. The most important among them are lecithin, viscotoxins, histamine, lignin, flavonoids, choline and essential oils. It can be used in the form of tea, powder and tincture.
Mistletoe tea is an excellent natural remedy for the relaxation of the nervous system. The mistletoe preparations relax and strengthen the nerves. They work directly on the nerves. Good working nerves strengthen the capillaries of the peripheral blood circulation and decrease the rapid heart rate due to nervousness. So this tea is a great cure when you are tense, facing stress and have an attack of the headache.
Consider Natural Remedies
Pharmaceutical industries have simple solution to us. They invented painkillers that can alleviate body pain or a headache in about 15-20 minutes. But did you even asked yourself what substances are in these pills?

If you are facing regular headaches, you should ask yourself what is a cause of them. Maybe you are spending too much time on the computer like I did and face regular headaches.
