Healing Ginseng Tea against headache, migraine or detoxifying

During my really bad time with my chronic headache last year I read a lot about natural medicine and tried out different complementary medicine. Nothing helped really good. But one therapy convinced me! Ginseng. I read an article about the healing energy and searched for high quality Ginseng roots because it is very important to use high quality. There are two different types of Ginseng.

The Korean one and the American one. I used the Korean one because that is the traditional one. Some studies have found that ginseng may boost the immune system. Using the dried ginseng root is best to get all healthy ingredients. Ginseng is sweet and slightly bitter in flavor and it is the best to combine it with other spices like ginger, liquorice root and cinnamon. Ginseng roots are very firm and it will slice easily after it has been warmed in the oven. I cut it with a good knife and it worked well. I decided to make a drinking cure for 6 weeks because I read about the healing effect.

So I combined 4 of the healthiest spices and cook them for 90 minutes on low head to get a reduced tea. And trust me it is really delicious and I noticed the health benefit after 2 days! I already make a little tea break because my natural health professional recommend me to make a break because of the habituation. And I missed that tea so much. I feel the energy while I’m drinking it and I really love the sweet taste from the liquorice root I add.

Licorice Root is known for its antiviral, antibacterial, antioxidant and antidepressant activity and it helps to regulate the cholesterol levels. It’s very exciting that Licorice Root has a mild estrogenic activity which may help with PMS symptoms such as mood swings as well as menstrual cramps. Drinking Licorice Root tea starting 3 days before expected period time may help with menstrual cramps, hormonal imbalance and help ease the PMS symptoms. The Combination with tasty cinnamon sticks and fresh ginger is my absolutely favorite tea. I drink a cup in the morning and a cup in the evening. You can easily prepare it in advance and warm it up in time. You can store this tea in the fridge for up to 4 days.

You can also drink the tea when you don’t have headache. It is antibacterial and detoxifying. A tea for everybody, don’t matter if you have headache or not.

Chlorophyll with Sweet Wheatgrass Shots

Because I always wanted to make Wheatgrass shots I used my time during the weekend and made these super cute and full packed healthy shots with my new Proteinworld Wheatgrass. I’m so happy. They are so cute and it is such a great benefit to drink these shots during the day. I never used wheatgrass in the past. That is my first time.

Wheatgrass is one of the best source of chlorophyll. Chlorophyll is an important blood builder and it is the first product of light, so it contains more light energy than any other food. This amazing element neutralized toxins from your body. Wheatgrass contains 13 essential amino acids and its full packed with lots of Vitamins. Drinking a shot a few times a week provides your body with all that healthy ingredients.

You can drink it really easy to your breakfast or at lunch time. Prepare a bottle and drink them during the week and store in the fridge. I used the Wheatgrass from Proteinworld. They offer a big range of healthy products in their shop and have Free Shipping worldwide. You find all the healthy products in their shop: Proteinworld. That is only one brand, there are many others who offer wheatgrass.

To make these shots sweetener I used dates and pineapple. Most of the times I use dates in my kitchen because they are really natural and have lots of health benefits. You can easily mix them in smoothies or for baking. I always store a lot of dates in my kitchen because for some sweat treats I use a lot of dates.

Sometimes it is very difficult to find real good pineapples here in Germany. Do you now a trick how to test if they are ready to eat?

Pineapples are a “happy” food because it makes feel you happy. They contains Serotonin, a neurotransmitter, which is available for a good mood. Serotonin brakes cravings as well. Perfect fruit to add in this green shot.
