Nettle is a popular treatment cystitis. It’s also said to help prevent urinary tract infections (UTIs). To prepare nettle tea, put a tablespoon of dried nettle leaves in your cup, pour boiling water over, cover with a piece of foil or a plate and let infuse for 10 minutes. Filter and drink. If you have cystitis, you should consult your doctor rather than relying on nettle tea as a treatment. While it helps reduce treatment time, it won’t reverse severe cases. Drink nettle tea two or three times per week as prevention.
#3: Star anise
Star anise is excellent for easing digestive troubles like gas, bloating and stomach ache. In the form of a tea, it’s touted the “longevity tonic” because it contains shikimic acid, which is essential in the treatment of flu and is used in the production of anti-influenza drugs. To prepare star anise tea, put four whole star anise in your cup, pour boiling water over, cover with a piece of foil or a plate and let infuse for 10 minutes. Remove the star anise and drink. Drink star anise tea after big meals – or every meal, if you like – to prevent digestive distress.
Lavender is renowned for its calming effect. It helps reduce your stress
levels and makes you forget about the hassle of everyday life. To prepare lavender tea, put a tablespoon of culinary lavender flowers in your cup, pour boiling water over, cover with a piece of foil or a plate and let infuse for 10 minutes. Filter and drink. Drink up to three cups of lavender tea per day or whenever you’re feeling stressed – the herb has a wonderfully therapeutic effect!
Before you use any of these four herbs, you should ensure that you’re not allergic. If the problem that you’re trying to treat persists even after trying herbal tea as a remedy, consult your doctor.
