AHHHH TEEEEEAASS. I do love me a cup of tea! Here’s some things you should consider for tea enjoyment.

I run my tea in my coffee pot like coffee. I like it rich so I keep the actual pot off the burner so the water soaks in the filter compartment for a touch though, I know my pot, lol in so many ways, I keep it from overflowing & relatively clean. :) I like my little five pour pal!

Teas and leafs are wonderful wonderful remedies and being a believer that anything can be fixed naturally. Tea should be as regular as milk, or soda for some of yall. Tsk tsk.

Be safe teas are no joke either; and think. This requires common sense, make sure you have it since your are absolutely and solely responsible for the results.

When doing anything you should be paying close attention to your body. Notice and accept. Analyze and act. Many times we confuse a new feeling for something bad. So be patient with yourself. And if you’re exercising or meditating and being ALL around healthy, you should know bad pain from growing pain.

Drink plenty of water at the first site of discomfort. Hence why the first thing in a hospital is IV hookup, since as a general whole our country is very very thirsty. Very few drink what REALLY should be the norm of water intake.  Think about it, your brain is eighty percent water, and entire body seventy five plus! So why is a bottle of water that last thing you drink!!!! AAAH. lol. Personally all bottled water excluding Nestle, Dasani or any other Coca Cola or PepsiCo companies, is what I’ll take. No place here as for why however just not an endorser.

Google, READ, Do some homework. Whether you’re concerned about a combination of meds or foods that enhance bone strength or whatever, just look it up! Google and read, remembering the top couple results are advertisements, get down to the organic internet listings and read what people have said keeping you’re original search open, do your own comparison.

Or Pick up a book. Go dinasoaur at the library. Trust no one will bother you there. GET LOST installing information into your brain in the most imaginative ways as our historic literature paints colorful words to life, since this time you know what your lookin’ for! Most and every library I have ever known will request any book and have it brought to your location usually free of charge!

MIX N’ MATCH, and knock out a few things at once. Tea is a mere infusion into water, mix and match any of the teas you like to create your own remedy prescription!

Take measure of whether you have eaten, been consuming alcohol and the same other relevant precautions you would take when you’re taking script medication.

Remember! Hang your head over the teapot, or inhale the vapors from your brew as your cup cools since the VAPORS OF TEAS ARE JUST AS POTENT, EFFECTIVE AND EQUALLY COMPLIMENTARY TO YOUR TEA EXPERIENCE.

If you’re not a tea person, adding these tea leaves to a smoothie or shake and digesting the teas are just as, if not even more effective in some cases!

           If smoking was your new year’s resolution which has now become next year’s to do; Give yourself a second start with a little Lobelia.  And if you remember smoking remedies can be well used for asthma and other respiratory ailments.

Half an hour after breakfast I’d take cup a day of this tea. Preferably taken in the morning will begin an amazing process of cleansing the lungs and respiratory system. This allows better breathing and quality of oxygen throughout your entire body.  It is recommended to start with one cup a day for a week proceeding with two cups a day the second week and up to three cups a day on the third week than leaving it at that. Continue with three cups as long as you feel needed though I find this is a remedy tea. If you’re on meds, I would be lowering the correlating (pulmonary) scripts as I increase the tea. Pay careful attention to your body and how you feel. Not all awkwardness is bad and vice versa. Upon taking this tea, I had a cough session and a half for the first couple of days, however later that week I just felt great. Some teas I will drink on a daily basis and some I will take periodically with a purpose as in this case. I am kicking that horrible habit of smoking. Realizing my stomach aches were from cigarettes & being apart from it so bad. My teeth were the real shocker, & how white they got once I quit.The nicotine wasn’t as great of a deal as the physical asphyxiation I had developed. I had given in to peer pressure my

sophomore year in high school summer school. I was taking advanced classes with cool obviously not bright upperclassmen girls that seemed like friends. They were, in their own way, nonetheless, I wasn’t focused on tanning as some were & my vision for my place in society was quite different. I outgrew them however the smoking stuck till now bwahahahahahaha.
