Twelve Way Tea Herbal Tea
     I call this my Twelve Way Tea because I have put enough herbs in it to cover many diseases and disorders.  Herbal teas are diluted with water so that a person can consume daily amounts of medicinal properties.  These amounts are diluted with the water so that you can consume at least two or three cups per day.  Herbalist contends that nature provides other ingredients in them to balance the more powerful ingredients.  When you use the herb in complete form your body's healing process utilizes a balance of properties provided by nature.   Mother Nature's pharmacy is always there, ever growing, season-to-season; she provides us our natural remedies and helps to build our immune system.  Many herbs that are rich in compounds and properties that have a beneficial effect on certain tissues, organs and can be used as medicines help cure, and/or prevent diseases. They nourish your immune system, stimulate the regeneration of damaged liver tissue, and help build strength of the glands, counter the side effect of chemotherapy, balance the entire system and improve other areas and factors of the human body.

Recommendations:  Try to follow a good diet and stay away from red meats, eat more fish especially white fish.  Eat more vegetables and a lot of raw fruit.  Consume fruit juices. Eat meals that have a balance of proteins.  Eat raw food, if possible if foods are heated, they should be baked, broiled, steamed or boiled. Eat a lot of celery sticks, and carrot sticks, low fat cottage cheese, fresh applesauce.  Do not eat any white flour products, salt, white rice, or processed foods.  Drink a lot of water. If you can fast try fasting ever other month or so.  Don’t eat sweets.  Avoid eating right before bedtime.  If you get hungry drink a glass of juice or water. Always eat breakfast and try to eat dinner early. Don’t skip meals. 
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 sweetener) it works well (Diabetics can also use Splenda or 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.
