have not heard of garlic green tea but I do know that garlic helps with blood pressure and the green tea is good for weight loss. So being together might be a good thing but not sure if it would taste good.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

Ginger helped me tremendously throughout my last pregnancy. I suffered 8 months of nausea; the first trimester being the worse. I had a recipe for using the ginger root which I seeped in very hot water. Its been several years ago (that pregnancy is now 19 years old!).

For me, any hot tea helps stave off hunger.
It seems to work best at the first/early signs of hunger/craving.

I take a break every day with my grandaughter. We have quiet time she's only 2 so I really need a break by that time. Usually I give her apple juice but sometimes she asks for tea she likes it I don't think it hurts if it's decaf. I hope we can do this for along time.

Dr. Oz show Fri said Hibiscus tea is good. Have you ever had it?
Here is info from teabenefits.com a site that is helpful
" Hibiscus tea benefits are only now being discovered the world over although places in Asia have long known about it.

Hibisbus tea is made from the hibiscus flower called Hibiscus sabdariffa. Hibiscus tea comes from the genus Hibiscus, in the mallow family (Malvaceae), and is native to warm, temperate and tropical regions. A recent study revealed that hibiscus tea contains a number of different antioxidants that may help to protect against cell-damaging free radicals. These teas also may help control high blood pressure.

There are several teas that contain hibiscus, among them are: sour tea, red zinger tea, and sorrel tea.

Here are some of the hibiscus tea benefits that have been discovered:
Hibiscus Tea lowers blood pressure
Hibiscus Tea is good for lowering high cholesterol
Hibiscus Tea strengthens the immune system as it is rich in Vitamin C

If you want to try hibiscus tea and derive its health benefits, buy it here now!

Benefits of Fennel and Nettle Tea
View TRINNI's Sparkpage
Wednesday, February 27, 2008

The mild liquorice flavoured Fennel tea herb is native to the Mediterranean region.

Fennel is naturally caffeine-free. It is commonly used as an after dinner digestive aid in Spain, India and Italy.

Fennel has anti-spasmodic properties. Research also shows it has some anti-bacteria properties.

It is a natural detoxifier and a breath freshener.

It stimulates the production of gastric juices. It works by relaxing muscles in the digestive and reproductive systems.

Fennel also stimulates movement of food through the stomach and intestines. In addition, it can put a stop to intestinal spasms.

Fennel is quite gentle. Babies can therefore use fennel tea. Its gastrointestinal benefits include:


Enhancing appetite
Promoting good digestion
Helping indigestion and constipation
Alleviating bloating and gas
Relieving heartburn
Alleviating diarrhoea
Relieving stomach aches
Alleviating nausea
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) symptoms relief
Crohn's Disease, colitis and diverticulitis relief


NETTLE
Many herbalists and naturopaths do say that the antihistamines in nettle make it an excellent treatment for hay fever. In one study, participants taking two 300-milligram capsules of nettle daily reported that their hay fever symptoms were significantly reduced. Nettle is also sometimes used to loosen congestion and open the bronchial airways in people with asthma or allergies.

Nettle may help people with arthritis to reduce their dosage of nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), which have been found to cause stomach upset and gastrointestinal bleeding with overuse. In one German study, people eating stewed nettle leaves needed only one-fourth as much NSAID as those taking drugs alone to experience the same pain relief. Nettle also contains large amounts of boron and silicon, two minerals that help ease symptoms of arthritis, bursitis, and tendonitis.

Nettle is also a natural diuretic. It helps the body eliminate uric acid and bacteria that cause urinary tract infections (UTIs) and kidney stones. The diuretic action of nettle may also help lower blood pressure and relive premenstrual bloating.

SP talks about green tea. Liz Noelcke, staff writer says..."Green tea is the only one that is not fermented though, so it keeps a lot of the antioxidants that are usually lost in processing the other two types. When prepared, green tea leaves are steamed or baked when still fresh, therefore retaining their natural green color.

Researchers have discovered green tea is loaded with antioxidants, specifically polyphenols. This type helps to fight against free radicals. Free radical molecules cause “bad” cholesterol to form plaque on the inside walls of the body’s arteries. Polyphenols are said to stop this, as well as to relax blood vessels" emoticon

What tea is supposedly helpful to what? This is not a scientific thread, but a suggested guide.....Please list one kind of tea and what you'd heard or think it's good for...

GREEN TEA Dr. Oz and others recommend green tea. It is supposed to help get rid of omentum. I have been drinking 3 cups a day since I read that and my belly no longer prevents me from seeing my shoes.
