I drink this tea every night 30 minutes-1 hour before bedtime. I drink it in the evening because it has lemon balm which calms your nerves and helps you go to bed easily. Also, it has peppermint and fennel as well which are really good for bloating, gas or simply improving your digestion. You need to make sure you fully digested the food you ate for dinner before you go to bed, so that’s why I like to drink eat after dinner, before bedtime.
Let’s see what’s in this tea mix.
Lemon balm is a miracle herb. I love it so much. I found out about it when I read Medical Medium books.
Like I mentioned above it calms the nerves, give you a good night’s sleep.
I’ve always had digestion problems (especially bloating and gas), even after I went vegan or even after I started a better diet (no processed, vegan junk food). I still struggle with it, I’m super sensitive to food combining, if I mix things I shouldn’t, I have digestive problems. Also even if I eat things that should be easily digested I experience problems.
“Many people suffer from various sensitivities in the gut, with complicated and confusing misdiagnoses involved. What’s often behind these problems are nerve endings that have become hypersensitive around the digestive organs. (…)
If someone’s stomach or intestines are irritated for no identifiable reason, it’s usually due to sensitive nerves. One common occurrence is that a food (even something very easy to digest) rubs against the lining of the intestinal tract, which causes someone with sensitive nerves to feel discomfort.”
Lemon balm helps you with this problem by soothing your nervous system and get rid of the inflammation and also relieving stress.
It’s also high in minerals, such as boron, manganese, copper, chromium, molybdenum, selenium, iron and also has a lot of silica which is really good for the skin, hair, nails, and bones.
It detoxifies the liver, spleen, and kidneys.
Dandelion is a powerful plant which cleanses your organs like no other, especially your liver, stomach, gallbladder, bladder, spleen, and brain. But it also has nutrients such as vitamin A, B vitamins, manganese, calcium, iron, magnesium, silica, selenium, and chlorophyll.
Nettle leaf is great adaptogenic herb, it’s really helpful to relieve stress.
“This anti-radiation wild food is amazing for pampering the adrenal glands and other members of the endocrine system that are overburdened, overworked, and overfatigued. And since the ovaries are part of the endocrine system, nettle is a win-win-it helps address multiple sources of hormone disruption at once. Nettle leaf is the ultimate reproductive herb of all time, especially for women. It enhances egg production by supporting the follicle-stimulating hormone that’s integral to producing an ovum, and also rids the body of toxic estrogens that have entered from outside sources such as plastics and pesticides.”
I also love nettle, because it has a lot of silica which is good for the bones and also for our skin, hair and nails.
Fennel tea, made from the seeds, fresh leaves, or the bulb, after a meal can treat digestive issues like heartburn, bloating, stomach cramps, and diarrhea. As fennel has estrogen-like chemicals, the tea can reduce menstrual cramps and symptoms of menopause. It also cleanses the blood, helps the heart and kidneys, balances hormones, and treats respiratory problems.
Peppermint is an awesome herb to relieve stress (that’s why it’s also really beneficial to drink before bedtime, so you can get a good sleep), the tea has properties that can even help you dream more vividly.
Peppermint tea is also a great natural remedy for certain stomach ailments, including bloating, gas, and constipation. Peppermint tea contains carminative elements, which allow gas to move through the body as it forms instead of remaining in one place, causing discomfort.
If you suffer from regular gas, constipation or bloating, sipping a cup in the evening before bed can help soothe these problems, making it easier to digest and fall asleep.
If you don’t like the taste of the peppermint, try the lavender tea. It also calms you down and helps with bloating and gas. You can alternate with these two, or even use both.
