How you ought to consume tea if you have Headaches, Migraines, Hypertension and Stress.
Many individuals have actually heard and seen the lots of ads about tea and its numerous cures and benefits. Along with weight reduction, cancer combating, and other cellular advantages curing Headaches and Migraines while decreasing tension is amongst the top promoted. But when I see these advertisements, I think Why?
After drinking tea for a while, including Green Tea, Oolong Tea, Rooibos, Lemongrass, and a wide listing of organic herbal blends, I have discovered that I don’t really know if I am combating cancer inside my body. However I do know that tea can significantly assist me to cancel a difficult time, and help eliminate and prevent headaches.
Merely drinking tea, especially some of the herbal blends specifically mixed for the event, can assist with headaches, and you will get all other take advantage of the real tea itself. But just consuming the tea in itself will not allow you to fully take full advantage of all the capacity, especially in regards to headaches and migraines. Because not always, but in some cases, drinking tea has to do with Drinking Tea.
I drink tea all day long. Cup after cup (Thank you, Tea Stand) I consume without any sense of traditional practice, or spiritual afterthought. I just drink it. However when I have a headache (from stress, sinus headache, caffeine, or numerous other reasons), simply consuming tea isn’t always finest. That is when my tradition comes out.
I don’t utilize special pots, or time honored traditions. There is nothing incorrect with them, but I rarely have time for that, and growing up in the United States, there are no time honored tea drinking traditions. I constantly used tea bags (low quality as they were my only alternative, and didn’t understand any better). So now, even though I am closer to custom, I still do not have time for this. My Headache/Stress tea drinking practice takes less than five minutes. Normally, that is all the time I have (which is mainly why I have the headache in the very first place).
I start with the double chamber premium tea bag. High quality loose tea, simple to utilize tea bag, reusable; three of the reasons why. I rough it up a little to make the tea inside spread out, then I put the bag into my mug. With the tea bag prepared I pour steaming hot water over it. A little bit too hot to consume. When the cup is full, I bob the tea bag in and out of the water for a minute or two, and let it site for a minute (possibly, depending on how strong I desire the tea, how many times have I utilized the tea bag currently, and so on) When letting the tea bag sit, I cover the string around the mug handle and anchoring it with the bead at the end. After the tea is prepared, I take the tea bag from the cup, and hang it on my tea stand. With green teas and Oolong teas, this is specifically essential. If you leave the tea bag in the cup too long it can get extremely bitter.
Now that my tea is prepared (a process which took perhaps two minutes) I am all set to ease myself from this bothersome headache. With the cup still steaming, I cup my hands around the mug and gradually breath in the steam. Slow, deep breathes. I do this three to five times, or till the tea has cooled down a little so that I can begin consuming it. It is still hot, but I will not burn my tongue or lips if I consume it. Then I take little slurping sips. The hot water is necessary not only for the steam however likewise for these very first couple of sips. The hot water slows down your drinking, as well as assists to clean out your head. After a couple minutes of this I am usually feeling much better.
Maybe this 5 minute practice is loosely based on custom, and does not sound too complex, but it assists me. I am sure that in this hectic world can appreciate 5 minutes where life is decreased and especially a tradition that is quickly, easy, and that actually assists to obtain minimize life’s little hassles; headaches, migraines, and stress.
