Detox and Cleansing Tea
    Have you ever sat down and took a good look at your body, first look at your hands, if you have any age on you then you will see spots on your skin. The spots are called age spots or liver spots. They are flat brown spots and they can appear on anyone's skin young or old.  These spots are from just about anything that we are associated with, contaminated air, smoke, free radicals etc.  Our bodies over a period of time have accumulated by products or waste products that cannot be dissipated thru natural ways, urinating, bowel movements, and sweating.  This is a sign of that your body is full of accumulated waste products that we have build up over the years.  Poor diet, lack of exercise, smoking, bad liver function, sunburn, and consuming too much alcohol.  These brown spots are really harmless but it is a wake up call for us to start detoxifying our bodies.  This herbal tea will help you to cleanse your body and remove the toxins.  It will cleanse your liver and other areas.  It will not remove the spots that are there.  You can use other things to try to remove spots. I will discuss this in my recommendations below.

Recommendations:  Eat lots of raw fruits and vegetables.  Do not use animal oils for cooking.  Do not use coffee, fried foods, saturated fats, red meat, sugar and tobacco. Follow this fasting diet or another one.  Clean you skin with olive oil then rinse with lemon juice and water.  Note:  you can use lemon juice and put it on liver or age spots and sometimes it will remove them, do not get into eyes. 
Directions:  Use 1 teabag per cup of water, place glass container into microwave and let cook for 3 minutes. (Never use Teflon or aluminum, it is believed to cause Alzheimer's disease). Let steep for 4-5 minutes, if using bulk tea strain thru strainer or paper towel. Also you can use coffee maker, it takes a little longer but does a good job extracting the properties from the tea.   I personally like the strainer because you get some of the small sediments, which are full of medicinal properties.  Garnish with lemon, honey or whatever you like.  I use Stevia (All natural sweetner) it works well (Diabetics can also use Stevia). Note:  After drinking this detoxifying tea you will probably notice that your sweat will smell stronger, your stools sometimes are darker, and also your urine, don’t be alarmed this is normal. This only lets you know that it is working well.  Enjoy your tea and also the cleansing of your body.
