Urinary Support Tea Blend
Urinary Support Tea Blend
This specific blend is new to my shop but it is a longtime favorite of mine, personally.
Let's have some real talk here!
After having a hysterectomy a few years ago, it weakened my pelvic floor (YEP - that's a real thing). For that reason, I struggle with frequent urinary tract infections IF I don't maintain natural support for urinary health. This is one of the ways I take my health into my own hands. I personally do not do well with lab created medications, so antibiotics are not the best option for my first line of defense.
I take a daily supplement called D-Mannose, a good quality supplement is important. I also keep this tea on hand if I ever feel I need the extra support.
I crafted this blend specifically to target that extra support.
Hops (humulus lupulus) - is an AMAZING and underrated medicinal herb in my opinion. It is wonderful for supporting so many important body functions. Please do your own research but it is good for urinary/kidney health, sleep health, estrogenic effects (menopausal support), it offers stress and anxiety support, cognitive health support, allergy support, weight loss support, hearth health and the list goes on.
Plantain (plantago major) - when ingested, plantain leaves enables frequent urination. This allows the body to eliminate toxins from the kidneys and bladders.
Dandelion (taraxacum) - Vitamins A, B-complex, C and D are found in the leaves. Dandelion also provides the minerals iron, potassium and zinc. Dandelion has diuretic effects -- it promotes increased urine production -- and also replaces potassium that may be lost in the urine. Native Americans used dandelion extract to treat a variety of conditions, including kidney disease, skin disorders and digestive problems, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center.
California Poppy (papavera somniferm) - is a great source of natural pain relief. UTI's and kidney issues can be some of the post painful things to encounter. It also works as a great support for anxiety and nervousness. Those feelings can often accompany sickness. This is just a really stellar herb for this blend.
Cilantro (coriander) - is excellent for kidneys because it contains detoxification properties. The detoxification process itself works by binding various heavy metals in the bloodstream while purifying the blood, tissues as well as internal organs.
Orange Peel (cistrus sinensis) - are added into this blend because they are an extremely rich natural source of vitamin C. Vitamin C is known to keep your immune system strong. They also add a great balance of natural sweetness to otherwise bitter hops.
Hibiscus (hibiscus syriacus) - A study was done at a health care center. The doctors had the health care center serve residents who were on urinary catheters Hibiscus teas regularly. The researchers found the Hibiscus resulted in significantly fewer urinary tract infections. The researchers also tested the mechanisms of Hibiscus with regard to the urinary tract. The study provided proof that hibiscus indeed helped prevent UTI's and promoted kidney health.
Rose hips (rosa canina) - are added into this blend because they are an extremely rich natural source of vitamin C. Vitamin C is known to keep your immune system strong. They also add a great balance of natural sweetness to otherwise bitter hops.Use 1 tsp per 8 ounces of hot water. Steep for 7 to 8 minutes. This tea is also DELICIOUS sweetened with a little honey and lime juice and then poured over ice. It is great for supporting all of the urinary system.
